From the heart of Ancient Greece to the trade hubs of Arabia, this is a journey into the origins of empires. After delving into myths and legends in Athens, the white lighthouse of Paphos heralds our arrival in Cyprus, the birthplace of Aphrodite, whose loveliness is mirrored in paradisical beaches. The setting sun paints the sky lavender in Haifa, where the golden-domed Shrine of the Bab and its fabled Hanging Gardens transform the flanks of Mount Carmel into a modern Eden. Manmade marvels appear as we approach Port Said and squeeze through the Suez Canal, the arrow-straight conduit connecting the cool Mediterranean to the warm waters of the Red Sea. Embrace the sanctity of the underwater world and swim through crystalline waters in Sharm El Sheikh, our beachfront refuge and gateway to the Sinai Peninsula. The call to prayer marks our arrival in Jeddah, cosmopolitan crossroads of culture, where Incense Route merchants and Mecca-bound pilgrims have mingled for centuries.
