Daily Itinerary

Day 1 - Depart the USA P - Arrive in Rome

Your pilgrimage begins as you depart the USA and arrive in Rome. Time permitting, take a panoramic tour of the Eternal City before embarking on the luxurious Celebrity Reflection.

Day 2 - Messina & Taormina, Sicily, Italy

Explore Messina, a city rich in history, and the connecting point of the “Italian Boot.” In neighboring Taormina, climb to the mountaintop Greek Theater with its spectacular views of the Mediterranean and Mt. Etna. Enjoy a gelato while shopping or simply wander the streets with the occasional breathtaking view over the cliffs to the seaside below.

Day 3 - Valletta, Malta

Paul was shipwrecked on Malta around 60 AD (Acts 28). After the Knights of St. John successfully defended Malta against a massive Ottoman siege in 1565, they built the fortified town of Valletta. Explore the town and visit the Barrakka Gardens that were built on a bastion of the city and offer a breathtaking view of the Grand Harbor.

Day 7 - Rhodes, Greece

Paul visited Rhodes briefly on his way to Jerusalem at the end of his third missionary journey. Over 1,200 years later when  Jerusalem fell during the Crusades,  the Knights of St. John fled to the island of Rhodes, where they ruled for two centuries. Suleiman the Magnificent finally captured the island, but lost 50,000 men in the campaign. The castles and old town built by the knights are still impressive today.

Day 8 - Santorini, Greece (on own)

Visit Santorini, one of the most beautiful of the Greek islands. Its picturesque whitewashed villages with brilliant blue domes dot the cliffs above the Aegean Sea. The island itself perches on the edges of a volcano whose eruption 3,500 years ago is thought to have led to the collapse of the Minoan civilization.  
Shore excursions are booked through Celebrity.

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.
