We shall start our voyage on the island of Crete with its fabled palaces of Knossos and Phaestos. After departing Crete we will set sail for Libya. From Derna, we will discover Cyrene, founded in the 7th century b.c. by Greeks. Built on the edge of a plateau, sprawling Cyrene commands a superb position, overlooking the valley and the sea. We will also have the opportunity to explore nearby Apollonia, set on a broad bay. Voyaging along Libya’s coast we will call in Benghazi, Libya’s second largest city, which provides our base for exploring the ancient nearby settlements. The highlight of our visit to Khoms will be Leptis Magna, founded 3,000 years ago by the Carthaginians, with a degree of splendor that rivaled Rome itself. Located by the sea, Sabratha’s ruins include temples, public baths, fountains, and a museum noted for its collection of mosaics. El Djem provides us with its great Roman amphitheater and Museum. After disembarking in Hammamet, we will visit the ancient and fabled city of Carthage.
