“Retrace Paul’s Second Missionary Journey “



Day 1 & 2 ~ U.S. / THESSALONIKI:
We depart U.S today for our flight to Thessaloniki, Greece. Upon arrival in Thessaloniki, we will be met by DCT’s local representative.  Overnight Thessaloniki. (D)

This morning we transfer to the port of Piraeus for embarkation on our cruise ship. We sail to the Island of Mykonos with its breathtakingly beautiful whitewashed buildings and churches. Wander through the many side streets with homes above the shops and numerous outside, waterfront cafes … a lovely respite. Evening departure for Patmos. (all meals on cruise)
Early morning arrival at the Turkish port of Kusadasi for a visit to ancient Ephesus. We tour Ephesus, a marvelous archeological site and the base for much of Paul’s missionary work (Acts 19 and Letter to The Ephesians). Paul labored and ministered here for three years. He laid the foundation for the strongest Christian church of the 1stcentury.  This afternoon we sail to the Island of Patmos.  We visit the traditional Grotto where John received the revelations while in exile and St. John’s Monastery atop the island. Evening sail for Crete.
Morning arrival into Crete, this island is 156 miles long and from 7 to 30 miles wide. According to legend it’s the birthplace of Zeus. The apostle Paul spent some time here at Fair Havens on the south side of the island. This afternoon we visit the Island of Santorini, great poets have sung its praises, a 4.000-year-old history. And the eternal rock continues to stand, strong and majestic, rising proudly from the sea and guarding well the secrets of Atlantis… The present-day crescent shape of the island is a consequence of the activity of the volcano in prehistoric times feeding the myth of the lost City of Atlantis. Sail back to Piraeus (Athens) in the evening.

Day 9 ~ ATHENS:

Day 10 ~ ATHENS:

Day 11 ~ ATHENS / U.S.:
