  • FREE AIR FROM 60 N. AMERICAN GATEWAYS

Sailing between these two iconic cities, this cruise will not only take you to the great sites of the Byzantine Empire but also to some of the most impressive monuments of antiquity. Starting with an overnight in Venice, you will not only visit the great buildings and galleries of the city, but also experience an exclusive private tour of St Mark's Basilica. Since its first incarnation as the 7th-century BC Greek colony of Byzantium, no other city has played a more important role in the fortunes of the eastern Mediterranean than Istanbul and it is here that this journey ends. Visit some of the greatest buildings and works of art in the world including the Byzantine 6th-century cathedral of Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace – residence of the early sultans – and the Blue Mosque. Among the other highlights of this voyage are the spectacular ruins of Ephesus, the remarkable legacy of the Golden Age of Athens, ancient Olympia and the massive Roman Palace of Diocletian in Split.

Includes a 2 night hotel stay in Istanbul.
