    The highlights of this cruise

    Art meets wine
    Wine cellar? Gallery? Museum? How about a bit of everything? The Art Space Santorini** is located in extraordinary surroundings in the pumice rock tunnels of a historic wine cellar that dates back to 1861 and showcases an exciting selection of contemporary Greek art. Take inspiration from the paintings and sculptures – and enjoy some natural wine from the region.
    An appetite for the sea
    You can look forward to tasty treats in the old town of Rhodes, where you will be welcomed by the chef of a specialist seafood restaurant**. He will give you tips and tricks on how to prepare fish, seafood and meze and you will have the chance to try your hand at cooking with his guidance. You will then enjoy the dishes you have prepared together, along with some local wines.
    Precious spiritual treasures
    Jerusalem is an extraordinary urban work of art, with buildings dating from many different eras. As a sacred city for Christians, Jews and Muslims, it holds a unique religious heritage within its city walls. Enjoy the very special atmosphere of the old town on an excursion* that traces biblical history, visiting sights such as the Wailing Wall and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
    A driving experience with unlimited fun
    Take a seat on your quad bike* for an on-road and off-road experience in Paphos along beautiful bays and through the unique landscape of the Akamas peninsula. An experienced guide will be on hand at all times to add interesting information to your four-wheeled adventure.
    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
    ** These tips are individual activities which are not organised by Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises makes no guarantee in connection with opening hours. Our travel concierge will be happy to help (fees apply).

    Panoramic views of the deep-blue sea, the sound of laughter coming from the tavernas and ancient treasures to discover: the charms of the Greek islands are very diverse – and a cruise on the EUROPA is a great way to explore them in detail. On SANTORINI and RHODES, you will have until midnight to enjoy the relaxed pace of Mediterranean life and explore the legends of antiquity at historic sites such as the Acropolis of Lindos*. In Israel, great history and a cosmopolitan attitude go hand in hand. You will see this in places such as TEL AVIV*, which is known for its spirit of renewal, and the biblical sites of JERUSALEM*, which are just as famous. Gazing out across the Sea of Galilee* is another experience that will stay with you forever.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
