Day 4 - Katakolon, Greece (On Own)

The small port of Katakolon on the Ionian coast is your gateway to ancient Olympia, the home of the original Olympic Games. Olympia has preserved both athletic and mythological monuments, many dating back to 776 BC. Most intriguing is the stadium, which is still standing, and the gymnasium. The museum also offers a peek at fabulous Greek sculptures. This Grecian port city is also the gateway to one of the most important archeological sites in the world, the ruins of ancient Olympia. Take a scenic drive through the small Greek villages on the way to Kouroutas Beach and spend three hours relaxing under the sun, swimming, and soaking up a perfect Greek beach day. Soak up the gorgeous Katakolon waterfront views while savoring traditional Greek specialties, like pastitsio or moussaka at one of the quaint tavernas and cafes offering shady outdoor tables.

Shore Excursions are booked through Celebrity.

Day 5 - Athens & Corinth

The architectural splendors of the ancient city of Athens are as magical as ever. View the world-renowned Acropolis, the Propylaea, and the Parthenon. Time permitting, view Mars Hill where Paul debated with the intellectual community of his day. Walk among the ruins of the Agora, the ancient market place and center of Athenian public life. You will view the Olympic Stadium, home of the Olympics. Travel to Corinth (Acts 18), a city that inspired St. Paul’s most familiar letter. You will visit the Archaeological Museum, the Market Place, and Temples. Walk among the ruins and stand on the Bema where Paul stood. Read Paul’s letter to the Corinthians and visualize his address to the Gentiles as he began the task of building Corinth’s church.

Day 6 - Ephesus, Turkey

Journey to Ephesus, the marble city where Paul spent three years of his ministry. The ruins of Ephesus have been restored much like the city was in Paul’s time. You will visit the ancient Agora and view the Great Theater. View the terrace houses, also known as "the houses of the rich," which give a true impression of the ancient lifestyle. Also, visit the Ephesus Archaeological Museum for a look at some of Ephesus’ most prized artifacts.

We dock at Haifa. Venture inland to the Sea of Galilee. You’ll stand on the Mount of the Beatitudes where Jesus gave His most well-known sermon (Matthew 5). At Tabgha, the traditional location for the calling of the disciples and the feeding of the 5000, you’ll find the Church of the Fish and the Loaves (Luke 9). Visit the Chapel of the Primacy where three times Peter professed his devotion to the risen Christ (John 21).
