Day 4 Santorini, Greece (on own)

Visit Santorini, one of the most beautiful of the Greek islands. Its picturesque whitewashed villages with brilliant blue domes dot the cliffs above the Aegean Sea. The island itself perches on the edges of a volcano whose eruption 3,500 years ago is thought to have led to the collapse of the Minoan civilization. Shore excursions are booked through Norwegian.

Day 5 Athens & Corinth, Greece

The architectural splendors of the ancient city of Athens are as magical as ever. View the world-renowned Acropolis, the Propylaea, and the Parthenon. Time permitting, view Mars Hill where Paul debated with the intellectual community of his day. Walk among the ruins of the Agora, the ancient market place and center of Athenian public life. You will view the Olympic Stadium, home of the Olympics. Travel to Corinth (Acts 18), a city that inspired St. Paul’s most familiar letter. You will visit the Archaeological Museum, the Market Place, and Temples. Walk among the ruins and stand on the Bema where Paul stood. Read Paul’s letter to the Corinthians and visualize his address to the Gentiles as he began the task of building Corinth’s church.

Day 6 Mykonos, Greece (on own)

Have a delightful day exploring the exceptional beauty and culture of the Greek island of Mykonos with its lovely bays and beaches, distinctive whitewashed structures, and cobblestone streets. Shore excursions are booked through Norwegian.

Day 7 Chania, Crete, Greece (on own)

An ancient city on Crete’s north coast, Chania overlooks the Aegean against a dramatic mountain backdrop. Its Old Town is a delight of narrow streets of Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish architecture filled with shops, tavernas and cafes. For a gorgeous, panoramic view of the Venetian Harbor and lighthouse discover the Firkas Fort and climb to the top! Shore excursions are booked through Norwegian.

Day 8 Valletta, Malta

Travel to St. Paul’s Bay to see the traditional site of Paul’s shipwreck and view St. Paul’s island from there. Embark on a narrated tour of Valletta, capital of Malta and a city replete with medieval charm and extravagantly grand architecture. No exploration would be complete without a visit to Valletta’s crowning jewel, St. John’s Co-Cathedral. This baroque masterpiece was commissioned in 1572 by Grand Master Jean de la Cassiere for the Knights of St John. In fact, several Knights donated gifts of art to ensure it was adorned with only the finest works. Enjoy a little free time to explore the area’s charming shops and cafes before returning to the ship.

Day 9 Taormina, Italy

Explore Taormina, climb to the mountaintop Greek Theater with its spectacular views of the Mediterranean and Mt. Etna. Enjoy a gelato while shopping or simply wander the streets with the occasional breathtaking view over the cliffs to the seaside below.

Day 10 Pompeii, Italy

Journey inland to ancient Pompeii, dating almost to the time of Paul, where you can see the spectacular ruins that were covered by ash from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79.

Day 11 Florence & Pisa

Explore the rich heritage of two remarkable Tuscan cities. Embark on a tour of Pisa’s architectural masterpieces. Marvel at the Tower of Pisa’s famous leaning exterior, as you walk through the Field of Miracles.
