Dig Into Archaeological & Biblical Sites of Wonder with Azamara

Your journey begins in Athens, Europe’s oldest city and the cradle of civilization. This is followed by a day at sea to rest and relax, before enjoying an overnight stay in Alexandria—the gateway to Cairo and the pyramids. 

Then it’s on to Jerusalem, where we’ll be staying for three full days (two overnight stays plus a late-night stay). Walk the Stations of the Cross, or see some of the most celebrated shrines on Earth, including the Western Wall and the Dome of the Rock atop the Temple Mount. 

We arrive in Haifa the following morning, where an overnight stay gives you plenty of time to discover its archaeological and biblical sites of wonder, including Nazareth, Galilee, the Jordan River, and Elijah’s Cave. 

Awake the next morning in Limassol, Cyprus, where you can stroll narrow streets lined with shops, bars, and tavernas, and visit museums and historic sites like the medieval Limassol Castle, built over one thousand years ago. 

Enjoy a final blissful day at sea before disembarking in Athens, home to a treasure trove of historic, cultural, archeological sites.
