Petra: a Red Rose City

Amman to Athens
April 4-22, 2015

The magnificent Nabataean city of Petra owes its existence to the incense-trade route that ran from Yemen to Persia and the Graeco-Roman world. A perfect stopping off point for the caravans, the Nabataeans carved their capital city out of rock some 2,000 years ago. The result is one of the most elaborate and elegant achievements of the ancient world. Your tour of Jordan also includes Roman Jerash and Amman, the nation's capital.

After boarding Aegean Odyssey at Aqaba, it is on to Cyprus, the coast of Turkey – including the remarkable sites of Ephesus and Aphrodisias – and the island of Rhodes, famous for its Crusader stronghold. Next is the island of Delos, one of the most sacred sites of the ancient Hellenistic world and legendary birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Before reaching your final destination of Athens for a two-night hotel stay, the ship calls at the beautiful island of Santorini and a chance to explore the ancient Minoan site of Akrotiri.
