Journey with Archaeological Institute of America lecturer and congenial host Michael Hoff, a classical archaeologist, on this voyage in Greece and Turkey, exploring the preserved treasures and mythical landscapes of the ancient Greco-Roman world. Cruise among fabled islands aboard the exclusively chartered, five-star Le Bougainville. This elite small ship has only 92 suites and staterooms, each with a private balcony, and is able to moor in small ports of call inaccessible to larger vessels. Our epic program calls on Delos, Mykonos, Patmos, Rhodes, and Santorini-ancient destinations steeped in mythology and history. Cruise to Turkey’s sun-drenched coast to visit Ephesus, the most spectacularly preserved Greco-Roman city in the world. On Greece’s mainland, tour the scenic wonder of Meteora, where 14th-and 15th-century Orthodox monasteries crown soaring sandstone cliffs.
