On your way to countless discoveries on this cruise, you will take in romantic vistas of olive groves, ancient cypresses and colourful bougainvillea.

    Antalya, 11.00 – 19.00 hrs

    The ruins of Perge* and the well-preserved Roman theatre at Aspendos* are testament to how popular the Turkish Riviera had already become in the ancient world.

    Marmaris, 8.00 – 22.00 hrs

    Discover the countryside and typical friendliness of the locals on an inland jeep tour*. Encounter a piece of Lycian history on a boat trip to the ruins of Kaunos* – even from a distance, you can see the tombs of the kings cut into the cliffs.

    Friday, 02.05.2014

    Bodrum, arrival 7.00 hrs

    St. Peter’s Castle, the town’s landmark, stands over the bay – the houses behind it overgrown with bougainvillea and lit up by the sunshine: Turkey’s answer to St. Tropez had already become a memorable place in ancient times. Not far away from Bodrum lies ancient Miletus*, the birthplace of Greek philosophy. The countryside tour will take you along the “Holy Road” to the Temple of Apollo at Didyma*.

    Saturday, 03.05.2014

    Bodrum, departure 6.00 hrs
    Kos, 8.00 – 23.00 hrs

    Hippocrates, the great physician, still has a great presence on the island. He himself did not work at the Asclepion*, where the well-preserved terraces stand amongst the idyllic surroundings of a cypress grove. But maybe one of his students did, whom he taught under the plane trees in the town of Kos?

    Sunday, 04.05.2014

    Rhodes, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Seafarers were once welcomed to the island by the Colossus of Rhodes. Today, the medieval streets of the ancient city contribute to a lively UNESCO World Heritage Site for you to explore.

On the east coast, there is a sublime view of pretty Lindos with its Acropolis*, one of the most delightful places on the island.

    Heraklion, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Tuesday, 06.05.2014

    Kalamata, 8.00 – 15.00 hrs

    Enjoy a day in the shade of the historic part of town or stroll past Byzantine churches, the old castle and the convent. A detour to the idyllic village of Methoni* and to see King Nestor’s clay bath makes for an interesting morning.

    Wednesday, 07.05.2014

    Kerkyra, 8.00 – 17.30 hrs

    Empress Elisabeth of Austria loved to retreat to this peaceful island. Discover the undulating green scenery by jeep* or follow in the footsteps of “Sissi” across the grounds of the Villa Achilleon*, which was built for her in the attractive Renaissance style.

    Thursday, 08.05.2014

    Dubrovnik, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

    The “Pearl of the Adriatic” is full of surprises: discover Dubrovnik’s* historic heritage, such as the Franciscan monastery and the Rector’s Palace. Or explore Croatia off the beaten track on a tour of the fertile landscape of the Konavle* region by all-terrain vehicle.

    Friday, 09.05.2014

    Trogir, 7.00 – 19.00 hrs

    The delightful historic town of Trogir*, a gem of Romanesque and Gothic architecture with its churches and palaces, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
