    Experience the real Florence by mingling with the residents at a popular market, sampling Florentine delicacies and browsing the less commercialized Oltrarno district. The fun will begin at San Lorenzo Market, which occupies a beautifully restored cast-iron building constructed in the 1870s. Although you may recognize some of the delicacies, be sure to ask the guide if you can’t identify something or don’t know its name. Chances are, you will see lampredotto, a Florentine specialty of cow stomach slow-cooked with vegetables and served on a crunchy bun. It is considered comfort food. After sampling a selection of more well-known products such as cheese, salami and olives, you will walk toward the Piazza del Duomo in the heart of the city. The famed Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore overlooks the square, and its dome has become a symbol of the city. Then, after stopping for a cup of creamy gelato, you will enjoy free time to explore the Oltrarno district.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Mingle with the locals while browsing Florence’s popular San Lorenzo Market.
    • Sample local delicacies such as salamis and cheeses and some more exotic ones.
    • Explore Florence’s authentic, less commercialized Oltrarno district.

    Fly to a national park on the border of Argentina and Brazil and behold the staggering power and beauty of Iguazú Falls by walking along trails and cat walks that give you extraordinary views of this amazing natural wonder.


    After departing from the pier, you will transfer to the airport in Buenos Aires and fly directly to Iguazu, which lies inland near Iguazú National Park. The falls were discovered in 1541 by Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca and established in 1984 as a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Situated in Iguazú National Park, the falls are shared by both Brazil and Argentina.


    The massive cascade is made up of 275 separate waterfalls that thunder down sheer cliffs in a majestic display of nature’s power. The falls are nearly twice as high and three times as wide as Niagara Falls, a fact not lost on Eleanor Roosevelt who reportedly said, “Poor Niagara,” when she beheld roaring Iguazu.


    You will observe this staggeringly beautiful, natural phenomenon by walking a path either above or below the falls. Both trails are extraordinary in their own way.


    Then, following a buffet lunch at a restaurant within the park, you will ride an eco-train to Devil’s Throat, which at more than 250 feet high is the single tallest waterfall within Iguazú. Once you are at the Devil’s Throat Station, you will have to walk approximately a half mile on a flat catwalk built over the Upper Iguazu River. Once you get to the end of the catwalk, you will find yourself at a strategic lookout point that rests on the side of the spectacular Devil’s Throat. It’s truly a glorious sight that you will not soon forget. The surrounding rainforest is equally impressive, as it is home to about 2,000 plant species and 400 bird species, including toucans, parrots and peregrine falcons.


    Following your Iguazu Falls adventure, you will fly back to Buenos Aires and transfer to your NCL designated hotel.

    Relax on this panoramic driving tour of Corsica’s spectacular interior, a land little-changed over centuries. Pass through Cuaro village and beautifully rugged, mountainous terrain, resplendent with lush forests. You’ll see the dense shrubbery known as “maquis” blanketing the countryside and inhale the extraordinarily fragrant evergreen, interspersed with aromatic lavender, myrtle and wild mint. Journey past modest vineyards and cultivated fields before you enter peaceful Pineta Forest, dominated by tall, striking laricio pines, expansive chestnuts and dramatic beech trees. Enter heart-stopping Prunelli Gorges with its jagged granite walls and descend through serpentine twists and curves. Arrive ultimately at serene, man-made Tolla Lake, source of Ajaccio’s hydro-electric power, and snap a postcard-worthy photo. Sharp pinnacles emerge from the forest just past Tolla, a ridge-top village nestled into the mountainside, then the amazing vista opens to an expanse of fertile valley below. Delight in numerous picturesque hamlets, including Ocana, known for austere granite homes, and imagine everyday life in this timeless land.

    Discover the traditional ways being practiced in the fishing village Pedregalejo, where you will see how an old-style fishing boat is made and learn how to grill sardines on an open fire. The origin of the wooden boats, known as jábegas, dates to the Phoenician era. They have recently experienced a rebirth of sorts with rowing clubs using them in competitive events. Pedregalejo is also revered for its old-style beachfront restaurants known as chiringuitos. At one of the most popular chiringuitos, you will learn how to prepare espeto, which is barbecued fish, most often sardines. The fish are heavily seasoned with coarse sea salt and skewered on long flat bamboo sticks. They are then placed over an open fire of olive wood, which imparts an unmistakable flavor. If sardines are used, their silvery color will turn golden brown as they cook. Once the sardines are done, you can eat them with your fingers right off the skewer.

    Admire the city’s marquee attractions, stopping for photos at the key landmarks before visiting St. Demetrius Church and the Archaeological Museum.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon enter the heart of Thessaloniki, a thriving metropolis that is the second largest city in Greece. Considering its size and the importance of Thessaloniki in the ancient world, there are plenty of fascinating attractions. The most recognizable is the White Tower, a 15th-century fortress that has become the city’s symbol.


    Even older are the Arch and Rotunda of Galerius, which the emperor built in the 4th century to commemorate his victory over Persia. Although many of the supporting buildings have now crumbled, these two structures have stood the test of time. Similarly, the citadel and Thessaloniki’s defensive walls are reminders of its tumultuous history. The best views are from Upper or Old Town, one of the few areas that survived the great fire of 1917.


    Of course, not all of the attractions are ancient. You will also pass the International Trade Fair grounds and the campus of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.


    Still, the tug of history is irresistible, especially as you meander through St. Demetrius Church admiring the Byzantine mosaics that depict the story of the saint. More historical artifacts await you at the Archaeological Museum, which includes exhibitions on subjects such as prehistoric Macedonia and the use of gold in jewelry, coins and clothing. After browsing the museum, you will return to the pier.

    This amazing 2-day adventure fully showcases the mesmerizing sights and extraordinary heritage of Israel. The memories of your time spent immersing yourself in the cultural environment and sounds of this captivating land will no doubt remain with you long after you have left its borders. Explore the heart of the Holy Land by visiting many of the most hallowed religious areas, including the Old City of Jerusalem, Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, the Dead Sea and Nazareth.


    This overnight program is conducted in a minibus holding no more than 10 guests and a driver and guide in each vehicle.


    DAY 1
    Departing the port of Ashdod, you will have a scenic drive to Jerusalem crossing Israel’s low land and up the Judean Mountains. The capital of Israel, Jerusalem is famous for its timeless beauty and was once considered the center of the world. Note: Eat a hearty breakfast on board before departing.


    Your visit to Jerusalem will start with a stop at Mount Scopus. From this vantage point high above the city, you will have the opportunity to see the breathtaking view of the entire city spread out in front of you.


    Next you will visit the Garden of Gethsemane. According to the gospels, it was here in these olive groves that Jesus and his disciples prayed together on the night before he was arrested. You will also have time to visit the Church of the Agony, also Known as the Church of All Nations, which displays a mosaic depicting the betrayal of Jesus by Judas.


    After a short drive you’ll start your voyage back in history. With your guide you will now start your walk through the Old City via the Dung Gate. You will visit the Western Wall which early European visitors nicknamed the "Wailing Wall" as it where Jews gathered to mourn the destruction of their temple by the Romans in 70AD. Revered as the sole remnant of the 2nd Temple, the massive Western Wall is actually part of the Temple Mount foundation erected by Herod the Great. The Wall is the most sacred Jewish shrine in world.


    Coming out of the Jewish Quarter and crossing the Muslim Quarter you will follow part of the route of the Via Dolorosa (The Way of Cross). This ancient cobbled road runs between the supposed location of Jesus' trail by Pontius Pilate and the site of his crucifixion. This route will lead you to the Hill of Golgotha and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. The church is believed to enshrine the sites of Christ's crucifixion, entombment and resurrection.


    The 12th century church is shared by several Christian denominations. Steep steps lead to the second level where a shrine is situated in Calvary or Golgotha. Explore this huge church and experience the unique atmosphere of this place created by pilgrims from all over the world. Note: expect crowds and possible delays here.


    Re-join your minibus at the Jaffa Gate and you will be driven to your lunch venue.


    After lunch, you’ll head south through the Judean Hills to the city of Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, located on the desert rim. Here you will visit the Church of the Nativity with a local guide. Built by the Roman Emperor Constantine in 339AD, this church is a UNESCO world heritage site and is built above a cave where the birth of Jesus is believed to have taken place. It is an important place of pilgrimage in the Christian faith. After your visit you will be given some time to browse through the various craft shops that can be found in this area.


    Back on your minibus you will drive back to Jerusalem for a panoramic drive through the city. You will pass by some important landmarks including the Hebrew University, the Israel Museum, the Shrine of the Book, the Knesset (Israel’s Parliament), the State Supreme High Court and the illuminated Old City walls- definitely an unforgettable site.


    Check in to your hotel where the remainder of the evening is at your leisure and dinner is on your own.


    DAY 2
    After a enjoying an Israeli buffet breakfast at your hotel, check out and proceed across the Judean Desert to one of the wonders off the world, the Dead Sea.


    At more than 400m (1280 feet) below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. The mineral laden water is undrinkable and supports no life. You will visit a leading resort on its shore and experience a classic moment for travelers to the Holy Land: a “Floating Experience”. The saltwater keeps even non-swimmers afloat.


    Situated on the northern part of the Dead Sea, not far from Jericho, this beach offers the ultimate opportunity, to experience floating in the salty water along with using the famous mineral mud that you can find naturally on the sea floor.
    After leaving the Dead Sea, drive along the Jordan Valley to your lunch venue located in a restaurant by the Sea of Galilee.


    After lunch, visit Yardenit, the baptismal site on the banks of the Jordan River. Here a short visit will be made to the Baptism site and the many souvenir stalls.


    Next, enjoy a scenic drive from the Sea of Galilee up to the Lower Galilee Hills. Pass the Village of Canna, where Jesus is believed to have performed his first miracle, changing water into wine at the wedding. Finally, you will reach Nazareth - the childhood home of Jesus Christ.


    Visit the Church of Annunciation and the Church of St. Joseph, before re-joining your minibus for the drive to the port of Haifa where you will re-embark the ship.


    Please note: Light-weight clothing, caps and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. When visiting the religious sites conservative attire is required. Shorts and sleeveless shirts are not permitted. Order of sites visited may vary. Swimming in the Dead Sea is optional. Please bring or wear your swimsuit under your clothing if you wish to swim.
