Aboard Nautica

Take an epic adventure to some of the most historic sites of the Mediterranean on this two-week journey aboard Oceania Cruises’ Nautica. Begin your travels among the ruins and relics of Athens and set sail for Santorini, where chalk-colored homes cling to stony cliffs. Cruise to Rhodes and get a glimpse of civilizations past, then head to Paphos to see immaculately preserved Roman villas with elaborate mosaic-tiled floors. Uncover the biblical history of tourist-friendly Ashdod, or head inland to explore sites like the Mount of Olives and the Garden of Gethsemane. Then, spend two days in Haifa, a center of arts and culture. You may also choose to journey to Jerusalem to discover treasures including Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee. In Heraklion, the capital of Crete, take in the ruins of an ancient Minoan palace. And in Gythio, experience small-town Greek life or travel through the countryside to nearby Mystras, a UNESCO World Heritage site rich in Byzantine history. Next, travel to Zakynthos and wander through Solomos Square to take in its post-Byzantine treasures, or lounge on some of the best beaches that Greece has to offer. Soak up the youthful vibrancy of Catania, a Sicilian city with a historic baroque-tinged city center. Before your cruise ends in Rome, delight in the seaside promenades and charismatic southern Italian culture of Sorrento, or venture to see the mesmerizing ruins of Pompeii—one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.
