    Delve into the history of the surrounding Aichi Prefecture by browsing an open-air museum and a 16th-century castle that is remarkably intact. Dozens of buildings from the Meiji Period have been carefully reconstructed at the Meijimura museum, and you will easily recognize the Western influence in the architecture. This short period in Japanese history ended in 1912 and marked the end of samurai rule and the beginning of Japan’s modernization.


    The nearby Inuyama Castle is even more impressive architecturally as it is one of the few castles in Japan that survived wars and natural disasters without being severely damaged. As you meander through this official national treasure, you will see artifacts relating to the Naruse family that once owned the castle. The armory of samurai weapons and the hidden doors for the guards are of particular note, as they shed light on the fact that the castle was under constant threat of attack.

    The old port of Mandraki, where this tour begins, is believed to be the site of the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Historic sites abound in Rhodes, as you will soon discover after enjoying a panoramic view of the city and Rhodes Bay from atop Monte Smith.


    Visit the fully restored 14th-century Grand Masters Palace, which contains beautiful alabaster windows, French and Venetian furniture, and floor mosaics with scenes from Greek mythology. It served as a fortress in times of war, and a residence for the Grand Master and a meeting place for senior knights during times of peace. As you continue down the Avenue of the Knights, where the knights lived, the cobblestoned street seems to exude a noble and somewhat forbidden aura, as its lofty buildings stretch in an unbroken wall of honey-colored stone, punctuated by huge doorways and arched windows. At the conclusion of this tour, you can either return to ship, or remain in the old town to explore further on your own.

    Ephesus, Didyma & Miletus

    Visit three meticulously excavated cities whose ruins reveal their splendor and prosperity in ancient times.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a picturesque drive to the excavated ruins of Miletus, an ancient city that the Greeks founded near the Menderes River. Although the city was abandoned in the 6th century when its harbors silted up, Miletus once prospered, as you will discover by wandering through its remains.


    Among the highlights are a Greco-Roman theater that held 25,000 spectators and the Baths of Faustina, a complex with water fountains shaped like the river god Meander. Despite the relevance of the historical sites, it is hard to imagine that Miletus was once on a peninsula with four harbors, as it is now on a plain that lies five miles inland.


    Not far away, you will find the ruins of Didyma, whose key landmark is the Temple of Apollo. One of the largest temples in the ancient world, it was a magnificent monument whose sacred oracle rivaled that of the more famed one in Delphi.


    More fabulous ruins await your exploration in the World Heritage site Ephesus, where you will behold one excavated building after another. They include the theater where St. Paul preached, the Church of the Virgin Mary and the Library of Celsus, a monument constructed as a mausoleum with a separate library for scrolls and codexes.


    Back in Kusadasi, you might spend free time shopping or stay in town longer for an enlightening carpet lecture.

    Gain insight into one of the bloodiest battles of the Pacific Theater and see how Okinawa has commemorated the soldiers and civilians that lost their lives during this last major battle of World War II. Your immersion into the Battle of Okinawa will begin at Peace Memorial Park, a somber site with dozens of memorial monuments constructed in an area where the battle eventually came to an end. Nearby, you will find the Himeyuri Monument, a memorial to the female high school students and teachers that died during the battle while attending to injured Japanese soldiers in a makeshift underground hospital. The Japanese Navy also had their command center underground, and it hasn’t changed much since the last days of the battle in June 1945. Descend the 100 or so steps to it, and you will see the staff rooms and narrow tunnels that the Japanese occupied in their desperate attempt to defend Okinawa.

    Explore two of the world's most historical cities as you step back in time with visits to Jerusalem and Bethlehem.


    Your tour begins with a beautiful scenic drive from Haifa into the Judean Hills. As you ascend into these hauntingly stark hills, your coach will be traveling along the same route used for centuries to reach Jerusalem. The capital of Israel, Jerusalem is famous for its timeless beauty and was once considered the center of the world. As you navigate your way through this amazing city, you will pass some of Israel's most notable landmarks, such as the Hebrew University, home to 2005 Nobel Prize winner Professor Emeritus Robert J. Aumann, the Israel Museum, the Shrine of the Book, the Knesset (Israel's Parliament) and the State Supreme High Court. After an interesting overview of the city, you'll proceed toward the Mount of Olives where time will be allowed to take photos from this highly favorable vantage point that provides an unparalleled and breathtaking panorama of the walled Old City. Near the base of the Mount, you will find the picturesque Gardens of Gethsemane, site of an ancient olive oil press yard that is surrounded by 1,000-year-old trees. Here you can also see the impressive Church of All Nations.


    Following an unforgettable morning, you will be treated to a relaxing lunch at a local hotel before it's time to continue your exploration of this fascinating destination with a walking tour of the historical Old City. Entering via the Jaffa Gate, your walk will take you past some of the most sacred sites in religious history. As you make your way along a route that flanks the colorful bazaar, you'll observe the Christian Quarter, which rests beside a part of the famous Via Dolorosa, believed by many to be the route Jesus followed as he carried his cross to Calvary. Amongst the sites you will view is the golden-topped Dome of the Rock. With its stunning blue and gold ceramic tiles, this amazing shrine is considered the third holiest site in Islam. You will also view the famous Western (Wailing) Wall, the holiest site in the Jewish world because it is believed to have been closest to where the Holy Ark once stood. A visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is also included. Perched on the hill known as Golgotha, the Church marks the site of Jesus' crucifixion, burial and resurrection.


    Rejoining your coach, you'll leave the city behind and make your way through the Judean Hills to the edge of the desert, where the legendary town of Bethlehem is found. Your time here includes a visit to Manger Square and the renowned Church of the Nativity. This extraordinary church is built over a grotto that is believed to be the location of Jesus' birth. Due to time constraints and very long lines to enter the actual grotto, doing so is usually not a possibility. After what will no doubt be a highly memorable visit, you'll re-board your coach and enjoy a leisurely drive back to the ship.

    Delve into the artistic and cultural sides of Sakata by visiting three museums, each with its own special emphasis. more...

    Delve into the artistic and cultural sides of Sakata by visiting three museums, each with its own special emphasis. One of the first privately owned art museums Japan, the Honma changes its exhibits every few months, but the real draws are the garden and early 19th-century villa of the prominent Honma family, where the museum was originally housed. Both are wonderfully serene. Almost the entire focus of the Domon Ken Museum is the photography of its namesake, a prolific Sakata-born photojournalist revered for the way he documented the rise of postwar Japan. Don’t miss the outdoor sculptures by Isamu Noguchi, a creative genius that also worked in media ranging from lighting to furniture. The Shonai Rice Museum is more cultural, as it is housed in several 19th-century warehouses. It collection includes farm tools and exhibits detailing the history of rice cultivation. The zelkova trees surrounding the museum have become a symbol of Sakata.

    Take this rare opportunity to see a unique section of the Great Wall at Huangyaguan, the section that is nearest to Tianjin.


    It's a 2 1/2 hour scenic drive through North China's countryside to the Huangyaguan Great Wall. Huangyaguan, meaning Yellow Cliff Pass, lies on a steep and abrupt mountain ridge, and is thus named from the yellowish hills and rocks nearby.


    Originally constructed in 556 A.D., the wall was repaired for the first time during the Ming Dynasty, and for a second time in 1985. The Huangyaguan Great Wall is considered to be a wonderful miniature representation of the entire Great Wall as it holds the greatest variety of features. This includes various forms of water towers erected along the wall here, including the largest tower of the entire Great Wall, the Phoenix Tower, and the most unique Eight Diagram Pass Castle. During your visit, you may want to take time to climb up the towers and enjoy the rugged beauty of the landscape below.


    Following your visit to the Huangyaguan Great Wall, you will transfer to a local restaurant for a traditional Chinese lunch. Afterwards, you'll rejoi your coach for the return 2-hour drive back to the ship.

    An ancient Doric town, Lindos is dominated by a magnificent acropolis, located atop a strategic hill overlooking the bay. You may walk to the summit or hire a donkey to take you most of the way. The views are absolutely breathtaking, especially of the waterscape below where St. Paul is said to have landed in 58 A.D. Other highlights of the famed archaeological site are the ruins of a walled fortress built in the 15th century and the remains of the ancient Temple of the Lindian Athena. It was was consecrated to the goddess Athena and also named for Lindia, a pre-Hellenic divinity.


    Upon descending from the acropolis, you can meander freely through the narrow streets and past clusters of whitewashed houses that lend Lindos its distinct look. A haunt of artists for years, the village also boasts a myriad of shops carrying locally made jewelry, leather goods and ceramics.
