Travel with the Mitchell Gallery: "Island Life in Greece and Turkey"
September 24 to October 2, 2013
Join us for this exclusive nine-day odyssey to the windswept paradise of Greece’s ancient islands and Turkey’s fabled coast, a world of rich culture and history. Cruise from Athens to Istanbul aboard the exclusively chartered, intimate M.S. L’Austral, featuring private balconies in 95% of the deluxe, outside suites and staterooms. Visit the legendary city of Troy, a UNESCO World Heritage site and setting for the epic tales of Homer’s Iliad. Meet local residents for a personal perspective on the true character of the Aegean Sea’s maritime culture. Tour the splendid classical ruins of Delos, a UNESCO World Heritage site, including the Theater Quarter. Discover the very cradle of Western civilization during carefully designed, expert-led excursions, highlighted by the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Delos, Rhodes, Pátmos and Troy. Extend your voyage with the Athens Pre-Cruise Option and the Istanbul or Cappadocia Post-Cruise Option.
St. John’s College tutor Tom May will join us and we will be sharing this departure with members of the Oakland Museum and Newark Museum, so expect a sell-out. To avoid disappointment, please make your reservation early.
