Greece via the Corinth Canal & Turkey: The Marvels of Ancient Rivals Piraeus 2021 - 12 Days
Anticipate the unforgettable and immerse yourself in a distinctly different Eastern Mediterranean cruise that explores the Peloponnese in ways inaccessible to large-ship cruise lines. Walk among weathered marble blocks and the faded echoes of ancient athletic glory during the first Olympic Games nearly 3,000 years ago near Katakolon. Step inside the restored stone arches of Meryemama Evi—the House of the Virgin Mary—a Catholic and Muslim shrine situated near the steep, stony slopes of Mount Koressos, before making your way to a delicious and exclusive Turkish dinner among the towering walls and columns of Ephesus. Wander the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, and the majestic Blue Mosque before tking in the endless parade of busy Bosporus shipping lights during an overnight stay in Istanbul.
