Greece is THE land of ancient sites and architectural treasures: the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, the reconstructed palace at Knossos, the belly button of the cosmos at Delphi, fallen columns galore on the sacred island of Delos, and frescoed Minoan palaces on Crete. But don't expect a visit there to be a sober study of the ancient world, the Greek propensity for partying dates back to Dionysus. Then there are 1400 islands to explore. Greece is much more than what you were taught at school or the predictable summer image of glorious sunsets and sandy beaches.
Egypt has been known as the cradle of civilization for centuries and also a cradle for inspiration; the source of many people`s discoveries and experiences. Discover the eternal Egypt of the Pharaohs and Great Pyramids, the last remaining wonders in the world, from the banks of the world`s second longest river, the Nile. The traces of this 5000 years civilization border the river valley for more than a thousand kilometers. Alexandria and its legendary port shines as the `Pearl of the Eastern Mediterranean` with its oriental flair and deep historical, cultural and archaeological heritage, and along all the North Coast with its stunning beaches.
Apart from Russia, no other country can stake such a proud claim to bridging `the East and the West` like Turkey, which sits astride two continents. It is called the `Cradle of Civilization`, where there are more Roman archaeological sites than in all of Italy, and more ancient Greek ruins available for viewing by the public than in Greece. The history from the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans, and finally the modern Turkish nation are all on display here, and the Turkish vacation experience can encompass everything from being in the hustle and bustle of a metropolis, to attending a whirling dervish dance ceremony, to sunning yourself on the country`s beautiful shores, to climbing mountains and skiing at top resorts, to enjoying an iconic hot-air balloon ride over the Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia.
The package rates displayed are your total price per person based on Double Occupancy and your Arrival Date and Number of Nights selected. You can change details after selecting your travel date.
