Turkish Delights

Explore exotic, enigmatic Turkey on this country-intensive voyage crafted to show you hidden gems through a local lens. Starting in Athens, we sail to Bodrum, Turkey. This Aegean jewel dazzles with tumbling bougainvillea, whitewashed homes, and a chic resort vibe. Next, is traditional-yet-contemporary Marmaris, where beautiful beaches and ancient ruins abound.

In the ancient Turkish port of Ephesus on a late stay, discover the beautiful Library of Celsus, the Odeon, and the Amphitheater where St. Paul preached, as well as the House of the Virgin Mary.

Arrive in Kepez, the gateway to Canakkale, Troy, and Gallipoli for another late night. Then, it’s on to an overnight in the captivating city of Istanbul.

In Istanbul, explore famed sites like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Basilica Cistern. Shop at the Grand Bazaar, one of the world’s oldest and largest covered markets. Go on a boat tour of the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn and indulge in delectable Turkish cuisine before taking a day at sea to unwind, then concluding your voyage back in Athens.

    Piraeus
    (Athens), Greece
    Read More +
    Date: Thu 27-Oct 2022
    Activity: Embark
    Arrival: -
    Depart: 5:00 pm
    Start your journey in Piraeus with an archaeological walk past landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, and of course, the Acropolis. Afterwards, head to the Central Market for a feast of fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese. Finally, check out a local taverna where you can rub elbows with the locals well into the wee hours of the night.
  • Day 2
    Bodrum
    Turkey

    Date: Fri 28-Oct 2022
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 8:00 pm
    As the site of the ancient city of Halikarnassus, Bodrum’s ties to the past are everywhere, like the Bodrum Amphitheater, Myndos Gate, and Castle of St. Peter. But Bodrum is also a place where you really can leave the past behind, with modern-day pleasures like sailing, windsurfing, and diving, as well as beachfront bars and restaurants.
  • Day 3
    Marmaris
    Turkey
    Read More +
    Date: Sat 29-Oct 2022
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 6:00 pm
    A resort town that is as charming as it is energetic—Marmaris has something for everyone. From storied charm in the city’s historic Old Town, a bustling marina, and of course, the vibrant night scene of the famed “Bar Street”, you’ll only wish you could stay longer.

    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 10:00 pm
    Kusadasi has many charms, but let’s talk Turkey: The star attraction is Ephesus. Once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, its marble-made Arcadian Street stretches from the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre (where St. Paul used to preach) to the harbor. Nearby sites include the Temple of Artemis, Basilica of St. John, and House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days.

    Kepez is a small seaside town, but real treasures can be found when you explore further beyond the shore. The ancient city of Troy was once just a myth, but archaeological excavations have brought this fabled locale to life. Also within reach of port is the Gallipoli Peninsula, where an ill-fated WWI campaign devastated Allied forces. In Assos, the Temple of Athena sits perched on an acropolis with sweeping sea views.
