Explore ancient Mediterranean civilisations

Date Posted: 21/05/2012

Voyages to Antiquity has added a number of new ports to its 2013 programme as well as a series of special events enabling cruise passengers to explore the best of the ancient Mediterranean civilisations.

With 16 cruises from March to November next year, new destinations include Carcassonne, Palma, Barcelona, The Island of Elba, Izmir and Jerusalem.

More time will also be spent in port to allow group travellers to make the most of certain destinations.

Passengers sailing into or out of Venice on some cruising holidays will benefit from two nights on board Aegean Odyssey in the city.

While there, they can enjoy a private evening visit to St Mark’s Basilica and a lecture series presented by members of the city’s oldest families.

Evening visits to Athens’ Museum of Cycladic Art are also available in addition to private excursions to Palazzo Gangi in Palermo.

Voyages to Antiquity will also build on its lecture programme for the 2013 cruise programme, which will feature renowned historians such as Mary Beard and Jonathan Philips, to military experts like General Sir Michael Rose.
