Highlights & Sightseeing

Middle East - Israel - Jerusalem - Gethsemane

Located within the walled grounds of the Church of All Nations overlooking Jerusalem, this peaceful garden featuring a grove of ancient olive trees is the site where Judas betrayed Christ.

Europe - Greece - Athens - Acropolis

These magnificent ruins are an iconic temple complex built on Athen’s rocky hilltop in 5th century B.C. The Acropolis is visible from most parts of the city and acts as a hub in which Athens revolves around. A brilliant sight day or night, take it in from your hotel balcony or opt for a closeup view with a tour up to the top.

Europe - Turkey - Istanbul - Camlica Hill

Enjoy a picnic in one of the best viewpoints in Istanbul. From the Camlica Hill you can see almost the entirety of the Bosphorus strait, as well as the city.

Europe - Turkey - Kusadasi - Ephesus

Enter the city though the Magnesia Gate entrance and walk down a marble road to the ruins of this Roman provincial capital. The major sites are the Odeum, the Celsus Library, the Temple of Hadrian, the Fountain of Trajan and the Great Theater. The theater had seating for 25,000, and is the site where St. Paul preached to the Ephesians.
