Cruise for true sails fans! with two days sailing!

Cypriot seafarers, Phoenician traders, Assyrian warriors, Egyptian priests, crusaders and mamelukes - all made the history of the East, their will, passion, aspiration and deeds imprinted in the stones you can touch. Ancient Lebanon: Beirut, Byblos, Beqaa Valley with Baalbek temples.  Alexandria – the Centre of Hellenism. The very names feel one’s soul with awe. But the East does not only live on memories. The bazaars are as colorful as they used to be in those old times.

Beirut

Day 4 Beirut

Сity of contrasts.

East and West are strikingly mixed in Beirut. National Museum, impressive "Grand Serail" - Ottoman Heritage, American University, Embankment and "Pigeon Rock". Excursion to Mount Harissa, where the statue of the Mother of God of Lebanon rises above Beirut. Visit to the Jeita Caves, a well-kept theater with natural decorations of stalactites and stalagmites, including a boat ride on an underground lake.  Famous Beirut souks are now modern wide shopping arcades and include Gold souk with global brands and local designers.

Beirut is a starting point for excursions to legends:

1) 7000 years old Byblos. One of the oldest cities in the world is located just 40 km north of Beirut. Citadel of the crusaders faces the picturesque bay and the Greek theater. With a stop at the Nar al-kalb river to inspect the oldest collection of wall inscriptions in the world. All the conquerors of this ancient land - from the pharaoh of Egypt Ramses II in the 8th century BC, the Assyrians and Greeks to the French expeditionary corps in 1942 - left a memory of themselves here.

2) Full day excursion to the famous Bekaa Valley. Baalbek, the city of the gods, stays in its center of it. Alexander the Great and the Roman emperors established one of the largest religious centers of ancient times here. On the way back we will visit the Beit eddin Palace, a masterpiece of 19th century Lebanese architecture. Marble inlaid doors, carved windows and hundreds of arches...Bekaa Valley is also the centre of Lebanese winemaking.

Limassol

Day 5 Limassol

Limassol is the second largest town in Cyprus. Apart from being a major tourist destination, it is also a principal hub for international business in Cyprus. This gives Limassol a cosmopolitan feel.

A many-kilometer stretch of coastline, from Pissouri to Governor’s Beach, makes up one of Limassol's greatest advantages. Whether you are seeking a cosmopolitan atmosphere or a remote location, a family-oriented beach or one suitable for games and late night parties, there are dozens of beaches in the city and province of Limassol that cover all preferences for relaxation or water activities.

Beautiful attractions, from ancient kingdoms to medieval churches, and from the neoclassical buildings of the city center to locations of natural beauty, combined with unique options for accommodation, wellness, and activities, all come together to create a diverse experience both in the city and countryside of Limassol.

Don't just see the city, experience it. Limassol crackles with its own unique energy. It is historical. It is cosmopolitan. It is exciting. It is wild. But above all, it is everything you could want it to be...
