Itinerary:

DAY 1:  October 16, 2022 - DEPART USA

Your pilgrimage begins as you depart the USA on your international overnight flight.

 

DAY 2: October 17, 2022  - ARRIVE IN ROME

You will arrive in Rome, Italy, where you will be met by our representative and transferred to the Port of Civitavecchia to board the Celebrity Apex.

 

DAY 3: October 18, 2022 - AT SEA

 

DAY 4: October 19, 2022  - KATAKOLON

Arrive in Katakolon and enjoy the views of the bluer than blue Ionian Sea, romantic Greek vistas, and a beach paradise. You can venture to Olympia, home of the first-ever Olympic Games, held to honor the Greek gods. In Katakolon’s tiny fishing village, you can enjoy a fresh plate of olives and feta cheese at a seaside tavern before wandering the charming town shops. For a relaxing day, you can stretch out on Katakolon’s beautiful beaches to enjoy the sea air and scenic views.

Shore excursions today will be booked directly through Celebrity Cruise Line

 

DAY 5: October 20, 2022 - ATHENS & CORINTH

Discover the rich architectural splendor of the ancient city of Athens as your guide introduces you to the world-renowned Acropolis, the Propylaea, the Parthenon and the Erechtheum. Stand on Mars Hill as the Apostle Paul did when he proclaimed, “I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.” As you stroll the agora (ancient marketplace and center of Athenian public life), recall that this was where the Apostle Paul preached “Jesus and the resurrection” to the skeptical Athenians. Also, see the House of Parliament, the Presidential Palace and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This afternoon, tour the city of Corinth, where the Apostle Paul met fellow tentmakers Aquila and Priscilla and received a vision from the Lord saying, “I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.” As Paul spoke, Crispus (chief ruler of the synagogue) and many others believed and were baptized, establishing the church at Corinth to whom Paul later wrote his two epistles. Discover the Archaeological Museum, marketplace and temples. As you walk among the ruins, stand on the Bema, where the Apostle Paul stood before Gallio to face charges brought against him by the Jews.

 

DAY 6: October 21, 2022 - EPHESUS

Ephesus is one of the Seven Churches of Revelation and was once a bustling port town with wide, colonnade-bordered streets and a population of 250,000. Spectacular excavations have revealed much of the glory of ancient Ephesus, including the huge agora and library, although much has been lost. The ancient world once declared the Temple of Artemis to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Today, only a single column remains to mark its site. View the terrace houses, also known as “the houses of the rich,” which give a true impression of ancient lifestyle. Explore the Museum of Ephesus for an up-close look at ancient artifacts. You will have time to explore on your own and recreate some of the footsteps of Paul.

 

DAY 7: October 22, 2022 - AT SEA

 

DAY 8: October 23, 2022 - SEA OF GALILEE

Venture inland to the Sea of Galilee to stand on the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus preached (Matthew 5). At Tabgha, the traditional location of the feeding of 5,000, you will visit the Church of the Loaves and Fish (Luke 9). On the shores of the Sea of Galilee is the Chapel of the Primacy of St. Peter, where three times Peter professed his devotion to the risen Christ (John 21). From there, travel to Capernaum, where Jesus called Peter, Andrew, James, John (Matt. 4) and later Matthew to be disciples.

 

DAY 9 & 10: October 24 & 25, 2022 - BETHLEHEM & JERUSALEM

While docked in Ashdod, explore Bethlehem, where you will discover the cave revered as the place where Jesus was born (Matt. 1; Luke 2). The Church of the Nativity constructed over the site is the oldest functioning church. Journey to Jerusalem to see Caiphas’ House, where Jesus was tried before the Sanhedrin. Stand upon the Mt. of Olives and view the city as Jesus did. See the ancient olive trees of the Garden of Gethsemane. Wander the Old City to view the Pool of Bethesda and walk along the Via Dolorosa. Step inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre built over the sites of the crucifixion and the resurrection.


 

DAY 11: October 26, 2022 - LIMASSOL

Go deep into Cyprus’ history as you explore the island today. This beautiful port town is known for its seafood, pottery, leather goods and traditional lace works. Wander the streets and enjoy the shops on your way to the Kolossi Castle built by the Order of St. John in 1210 in the city center of Limassol. Take a trip to Paphos from Limassol to explore ancient ruins, archaeological sites, and the goddess of love’s mythical birthplace. Travel past the Temple of Apollo on the way to this UNESCO-recognized city and discover elaborate tombs in a third-century necropolis.

 

DAY 12: October 27, 2022 - Day at Sea

 

DAY 13: October 28, 2022 - Day at Sea
 

DAY 14: October 29, 2022 - Return to USA
