FROM THE WALLS OF TROY TO THE CANALS OF VENICE: landmarks
of mediterranean civilizations
September 12 - 23, 2013
From $7,990 per person, double occupancy (does not include airfare)
From Mythic Prehistoric Sites to Magnificent Greek Monuments, and from Grand Roman Cities to Medieval Villages over looking the sea, the Mediterranean features layer upon layer of history and culture set beautifully upon azure waters. In these storied lands, the art and architecture from myriad civilizations coexist. Centuries of history imbue these shores, from ancient structures that remain remarkably intact to beautiful seaside walled towns that have retained their original character and architecture. On this voyage aboard Corinthian, we will also encounter the two main powers that coexisted, sometimes peacefully, at other times in sharp competition, in the eastern Mediterranean during the medieval period, the Byzantine Empire and Venice. Beginning in Istanbul— old Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire—we set sail for fabled Troy, where ongoing archaeological work has revealed the remains of a series of towns spanning the centuries, and continue through the Aegean, Ionian and Adriatic Seas ending our voyage in Venice, undoubtedly one of the world’s most unusual cities.

Unspoiled Islands, Pristine Villages and Ancient Sites. Unlike their bigger and better known counterparts, these islands have preserved their architectural and cultural treasures. This spectacular voyage will ply the Aegean waters in pursuit of pristine, undeveloped
destinations aboard the all-suite, 100-guest Corinthian. Each day will find us amid ravishing vistas, from forgotten ancient ruins to hidden harbors and idyllic villages. We will explore the whitewashed villages on the island of Amorgos as well as the awe-inspiring volcanic island
of Nisyros. In Chios, purported to be Homer’s birthplace, we will visit the 11th-century Nea Moni monastery, adorned with beautiful mosaics created by artists from Constantinople. On many evenings we’ve included free time in port to graze the shops and streets at leisure, and take in the authentic Greek ambience. We hope you will join us on
this unique voyage.
