Segesta

16 Apr Trapani, Sicily
Half Day Archaeological SiteUphill Sections
Drive to Segesta, once an advanced centre of the Elymian civilization, founded in the 5th to 4th century BC by a combination of exiled Trojans, Phocaeans from Greece and Sicans of Sicily.

It is an hour and a quarter drive to Segesta, once an advanced center of the Elymian civilization. The city is thought to have been founded in the 5th to 4th century BC by a combination of exiled Trojans, Phocaeans from Greece and Sicans of Sicily. Segesta was well defended, located on a vast plateau between two peaks and surrounded by walls.

Presiding in splendid isolation is a stunning Greek theater and the majestic 36-columned, 5th-century BC Doric temple. This archaeological jewel is in an extraordinary state of preservation and makes a superb sight amid its surroundings of rolling hills.

Discover Erice

16 Apr Trapani, Sicily
Half Day Cobbled StreetsUphill Sections
The Norman architecture may lead you to believe that this is a town out of the Middle Ages, but, in fact, this exquisite hill-top town has origins that reach back to pre-history.

Upon seeing Pepoli Castle soaring 2,500 feet above the sea, the Norman architecture may lead you to believe that this is a town out of the Middle Ages, but, in fact, this exquisite hill-top town has origins that reach back to prehistory. There is evidence of a cult to a goddess of fertility, Venus Erycina, that can still be seen inside the castle, along with a sacred well and Roman bath. The Norman walls encircling the town incorporate original Phoenician fortifications – you can still see letters from the Phoenician alphabet carved in their surface. Stroll upwards along winding, cobblestone streets to grand squares with 14th-century churches and wander atmospheric byways dotted with Englishstyle gardens.

Following the guided tour, there will be free time to explore the tempting shops that feature such local specialities as marzipan pastries or check out the panoramic views of Trapani and the Egadi Islands.

Monreale

17 Apr Palermo, Sicily
Half Day Significant Steps
Travel just a short distance out of Palermo to discover Monreale Cathedral, considered by many to be the most beautiful Norman church in Italy.

Travel just a short distance out of Palermo to discover Monreale Cathedral, considered by many to be the most beautiful Norman church in Italy. Designed by William the Good in 1174, the church offers visions of beauty, grace and the divine. The exterior’s thick walls and powerful towers have the look of an austere fortress, but just step inside: it is the interior that is this cathedral’s true glory. The large nave with its side aisles and grey granite columns draws the eyes upward to 12th-century gold mosaics that cover over one and a half acres of wall space.

The tour also visits the Benedictine cloisters, a magnificent synthesis of Romanesque and Arab architecture. Admire the serenity of the courtyard with its graceful arcade featuring 216 sets of twin columns and pointed Arabic arches. Later, enjoy free time in the main square before we return to the ship.

Syracuse

18 Apr Catania, Sicily
Half Day Archaeological Site
Many a conqueror set his sights on Syracuse, one of the largest and wealthiest cities of ancient Europe that, at the height of its power, rivalled Athens, Carthage and Rome.

This tour begins in the ancient heart of Syracuse at the archeological park of Neapolis, a 16,000 capacity Roman amphitheatre cut into the hillside. This extraordinary archeological site was originally used for gladiator fights, circuses and the staging of entertaining naval battles known as naumachia. Today it remains one of the largest of its kind in Italy.

Next we will visit the Altar of Hieron, thought to have been built by Hiero II in the third century BC as a table for the sacrificing of bulls to Zeus Eleutherios (Zeus the Liberator). Then it is just a short walk to the Greek Theatre, once the centre of the city’s political and cultural life; its excellent acoustics made it ideal for the oratorical and theatrical performances of the day.

Near to the theatre are the subterranian latomìe – stone quarries that in ancient times were used as prisons. The most famous of these are the Rope-makers’ Cave, so called because it was once used by manufacters of string or “cordari” – and the Orecchio di Dionisio (Ear of Dionysius). These man-made vaults are supported by pillars of stones that have been carved out by the quarrymen.

From here we will transfer to Ortygia for a walking tour of this quaint island-town’s best attractions, including the Piazza Archimede, the Cathedral and the Arethusa Spring, before a return to the coaches for our drive back to Catania

Taormina Walking Tour

18 Apr Catania, Sicily
Half Day Tender Extensive Walking
Nowhere is the beauty of Sicily more apparent than in the hilltop town of Taormina.

Perched on a terrace overlooking the sea, Taormina has a delightful medieval character with plenty of interesting historical sites to explore on this tour.

During a stroll around the city we will see the Palazzo Corvaia, which incorporates a 10th-century Saracen fortress constructed on Roman foundations into a 15th-century Moorish Gothic design, creating an architectural style that is notable for its lancet windows.

We will visit the Ancient Greek Theatre, the second largest of its kind in Sicily; this amphitheatre dates from the 3rd century BC and is still frequently used for operas, concerts and theatrical performances.

Finally, we will have time to stroll along the Corso Umberto, the main street of Taormina, into some of the smaller lanes and alleyways, or vuizze, of the city, where you will be able to shop for some local handcrafts, before a short sightseeing drive through Via Etnea, Villa Bellini, Piazza Stesicoro and Piazza Duomo, on our way back to Catania

Valletta & Mdina

19 Apr Valletta, Malta
Half Day Extensive WalkingUphill Sections
Join a walk through Malta's capital of Valletta, a city packed with historical interest. This World Heritage Site is dominated by two magnificent buildings: the Baroque St John's Co-Cathedral and the Grand Master's Palace.

Join a walk through Malta's capital of Valletta, a city packed with historical interest. This World Heritage Site is dominated by two magnificent buildings: the Baroque St John's Co-Cathedral and the Grand Master's Palace.

Valletta was founded in 1566 by Jean Parisot de Vallette, the 48th Grand Master of the Knights of St John, who was captured at the siege of Rhodes in 1522 at the age of 28, became a slave on a Turkish galley, and fought during the 1565 siege of Malta. This last encounter with the Turks revealed the weaknesses in the Knight's original base at Vittoriosa, so they moved across the harbour and established Valletta, an impregnable stronghold that has survived the centuries.

This morning, visit the Grand Master's Palace, designed by Gerolamo Cassar, with its luxuriously furnished State Rooms and portraits of past Grand Masters. Continue by foot to St John's Co-Cathedral. Admire the magnificent Baroque interior and Caravaggio's masterpiece, The Beheading of St John.

Drive next to Mdina, Malta's former capital, where much of the architecture dates from the Middle Ages. Around 60AD, the Apostle Paul was shipwrecked off these coasts and lived in a cave near Mdina.

During his stay he converted the Roman governor, Publius, to Christianity. Stroll Mdina's narrow streets to visit St Paul's Cathedral, built, according to tradition, on the site where Publius once lived. Then stop for a panoramic overview from the ramparts and take in the strategic position of this island coveted by both Rome and Carthage before returning to the ship.

Chania Highlights

21 Apr Chania, Crete, Greece
Half Day Cobbled Streets
Explore Chania Old Town on foot - learn all about the city’s history and see architectural legacies from Chania.

The first destination on this tour is one of enormous national importance for the people of Crete and of Greece. At the base of the Akrotiri peninsula, on top of Profitis Ilias hill, is the tomb of the island’s national hero, Eleftherios Venizelos, who prior to becoming Prime Minster for Greece, was instrumental in the island’s struggle against the Ottomans. It was here that Cretan rebels raised the Greek flag in 1897 in defiance of the Great Powers, making it a place of pilgrimage to this day.

After visiting the shrine we will transfer to the city of Chania for a look around the archaeological museum. This small but charming attraction is located inside the Venetian church of San Francesco, where artefacts include western-Cretan pottery, sculpture and mosaics, and coins dating from the Neolithic period to the Roman era.

Finally we will enjoy a leisurely walking tour around the old town and market of Chania, where there will also be an opportunity for free time to explore before returning to Aegean Odyssey.

The Palace of Knossos

22 Apr Heraklion, Crete, Greece
Half Day Archaeological Site
Even without the tales of a bloodthirsty Minotaur, this magnificent palace complex with its flamboyant decoration, courts, audience chambers and residential areas is an impressive and inspiring site.

Even without the tales of a bloodthirsty Minotaur, this magnificent palace complex with its flamboyant decoration, courts, audience chambers and residential areas is an impressive and inspiring site. Constructed around 1900BC, it was the administrative and religious centre of the Minoan kingdom. Here King Minos held court and – so mythology holds – his wife gave birth to a half-man, half-bull creature that lurked in the palace’s labyrinth. This fearsome beast was appeased only by human sacrifices.

An earthquake destroyed the original complex; it was then rebuilt on an even grander scale, only to be destroyed again by the massive volcanic eruption on Santorini around 1500BC. Though periodically excavated by Greek archaeologists in the late 19th century, credit for the full excavation and restoration is given to amateur Victorian archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans. Roundly criticised for occasional missteps in restoration, Sir Arthur poured his fortune into the effort and did a remarkable job for the time period. Knossos today, at least, allows the visitor to visualise the palace as it once was and understand its intricacies.

The guided tour will take you through this legend-rich, entrancing complex that sprawled across five acres, where everything from the throne room to royal living quarters is reconstructed with meticulous care.

On our return to Heraklion, we will visit the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, one of the greatest museums in Greece and the best in the world for Minoan art, as it contains the most notable and complete collection of artifacts of the Minoan civilisation of Crete.

Santorini & Akrotiri

23 Apr Santorini, Greece
Full Day Tender Extensive WalkingLunch IncludedCable CarCobbled StreetsUphill Sections
Closed to the public for over six years, the newly reopened Minoan settlement of Akrotiri is the tour's highlight, but you also visit several of Santorini's picturesque villages.

Closed to the public for over six years, the newly reopened Minoan settlement of Akrotiri is the tour's highlight, but you also visit several of Santorini's picturesque villages. One of the Aegean's most important archaeological sites, Akrotiri was abandoned after severe earthquakes, then covered in pumice by a volcanic eruption in about 1625BC. A visit tells the tale of an affluent society who farmed, built two-story homes and indulged a taste for frescoes, furniture and jewellery. Today's tour includes a visit to the ongoing excavations, where you can walk amid the well-preserved streets, view the workshops and squares.

Start your adventure with a transfer from the ship by local boat, then drive to the northern tip of the island to the village of Oia with its whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and coffee shops carved in the cliffs. Stroll along the cobblestone streets where wealthy sea captains built their mansions, now converted to cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Take in breathtaking views in all directions.

Continue to the southern end of the island and the archaeological site of Akrotiri. The excavations, led by Professor Spyros Marintos, began in 1967. Walk around this amazing city and get an insight into the culture that laid the foundation for Greek civilisation. Then continue to tiny Pyrgos, once the capital. View the distant Venetian castle, then sit down to lunch at a local taverna. Conclude your adventure in Fira, the scenic capital, where you may enjoy a stroll through the town before returning to the ship via cable car.

MV AEGEAN ODYSSEY

 

There is a particular pleasure that comes with cruising aboard a smaller ship. Hosting an average of just 350 passengers, Aegean Odyssey is no ‘floating city’. She is small enough to sail rivers and put into the more characterful ports inaccessible to the ‘mega-ships’, the service is more personal and you get plenty of time to interact with the onboard experts.

Yet on the other hand, she is large enough to offer a superb selection of amenities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a relaxing spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed, and 39 cabins across a range of categories (including balcony) are set aside for solo travellers at low supplement.
