DAY 1/ DEPART this evening on your overnight flight to start your spiritual
journey in the "Footsteps of St. Paul"

DAY 2/ ATHENS.  Arrive today in the ancient classical city of Athens. The afternoon is at leisure to prepare for the exciting days ahead.

DAY 3/ ATHENS. This morning you will tour the sites of Athens, starting at the Acropolis with its Parthenon, one of the archaeological wonders of the world. Also, visit the Areopagus, where St. Paul preached to the Athenians concerning the "Unknown God."

DAY 4/ CRUISE / MYKONOS. Today, you will be transferred to your ship where your cruise of the Aegean Sea begins. Your first port stop will be this evening at the popular island of Mykonos. Enjoy the landscape dotted with hundreds of tiny chapels and white-washed windmills or bask in the serenity of the sunset over the picturesque harbor.

Day 5/ CRUISE / KUSADASI / PATMOS. Today, you will stop at the exotic port of Kusadasi in Turkey where you will have the opportunity to take an optional tour to Ephesus. It is here that St. Paul's most quoted epistle was written. Also included on the tour is a visit to The Virgin Mary's house. This afternoon you will sail to Patmos. This site is famous for the apocalyptic Revelations of St. John the Divine who went to Patmos when he was exiled by the Roman Empire.

DAY 6/ CRUISE / RHODES.  This morning arrive at Rhodes, considered by many to be the most beautiful of the Greek islands. The island was once home to the famous Colossus. Below the town of Lindos lies the Bay of St. Paul where the apostle landed during his voyages.

DAY 7/ CRETE 7 SANTORINI*.  Charming and scenic, Crete was the former center of the Manoan civilization. Eupope's earliest, dating back as early as 2000 BC. The treasures of this era are highlighted by the partially reconstructed Palace of Knossos. We continue cruising to Santorini whose cliffs rise 1000 feet above the sea offering spectacular views and unique charm. (*Embarkation by tender, weather permitting.)

DAY 8/ THESSALONIKI.
Today you will disembark from your cruise in the port of Piraeus. Travel to the Byzantine city of Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece and an early center of Christianity due to St. Paul's visits. Your orientation tour will show you the highlights of the city.

DAY 9/ PHILIPPI / THESSALONIKI . Enjoy a full day excursion to the northern port city of Kavala to visit the remains of Philippi, a city built in 42 BC. This was the first city on European soil where Paul preached in 49 AD. Return to Thessaloniki for the night.

DAY 10/ THESSALONIKI / KALAMBAKA.  Today, tour Thessaloniki, the capital of Macedonia. This afternoon, drive to Veria and Vergina, site of the discovery of the royal tomb of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great. The tomb is especially unique because it is one of the few ever found in perfect condition and it contains extraordinary artifacts in gold, silver, glass and sculpture. Later, arrive at Kalambaka, a small town in Thessaly at the foot of the breathtaking monasteries of Meteora.

DAY 11/ KALAMBAKA / METEORA / DELPHI.  This morning, ascend the Meteora, to visit the hanging monasteries. Here you will see many treasures from the Byzantine era. This afternoon, continue to Delphi, ancient home of the Greek Gods and Oracles.

DAY 12/ DELPHI / ATHENS.  In terms of antiquity, a visit to Delphi tends to be a most impressive experience. Among the most famous sights are the Temple of Apollo, the Treasury and the Museum.

DAY 13/ CORINTH / NAUPLION / ATHENS.  Today, tour Corinth, where St. Paul lived for 18 months and to which he addressed two of his most quoted epistles. Upon return to Athens we will have a little free time for exploring or last minute shopping. This evening enjoy a special farewell dinner with entertainment at a typical Greek taverna.

DAY 14/ ATHENS / USA.  Transfer to the airport for your departure flight.
