Ancient Greece and Egypt

In Athens, join us aboard Le Lapérouse, the latest addition to our fleet, for an unforgettable cruise.

It will be an opportunity to discover major ancient sites from the great civilisations that were spread across the Mediterranean and contributed to shape our modern world.

First we will head to the Delphi sanctuary of Greek gods which you will reach via Itea, your first port of call. Delphi is located on a grandiose site that is one of Greece’s most beautiful natural landscapes. You will walk in the footsteps of the pilgrims of old, who came here to consult the famous oracle.  

Next, after a stop in Nafplio, a charming and well-preserved city dominated by an impressive Venitian citadel, Le Lapérouse will take you to Patmos, its monastery and the cave where Saint John is said to have received his visions. The next stop will be Rhodes, where you will fall under the charm of the Gothic architecture in the medieval city, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  

After crossing the Suez Canal, a ribbon of water carved through the desert by the genius of man, you will reach Ain Sukhna, your disembarkation port on the Gulf of Suez. This Egyptian city is the ideal starting point to discover the wonders of Egypt, land of the Pharaohs.
