KUSADASI Kusadasi is the gateway to Ephesus, once the second largest city of the Roman Empire and of course the home of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It’s believed that Paul wrote his Letter to the Ephesians here and preached at the Great Theatre of Ephesus, carved into the side of Mt Pion. It is still renowned for its wonderful acoustics. Our day also features the ancient city of Miletus where St Paul stayed on his way back to Jerusalem. PATMOS Patmos is one of northernmost islands in the Dodecanese and one of the smallest, most charming and most spiritual. It has an atmosphere of sacred grandeur. Patmos is most famous for being where the Book of Revelations was written, and where the vision to John the Baptist that it refers to is supposedly located. When John was banished by Rome to Patmos near the end of his life, he was the last remaining of the 12 Disciples. You can visit St John’s Monastery and the Holy Grotto of the Apocalypse, both of which have drawn pilgrims for centuries. 06 DAY ATHENS Our return to the Greek capital after our breathtaking voyage of discovery. 07 DAY 08 DAY 47 Ephesus Patmos VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS • Vlatadon Monastery - St Paul’s Tribune • Philippi - prison where St Paul and St Silas were held • Pergamon - cable car journey to the Acropolis • The ancient city of Ephesus The Acropolis, Athens Kusadasi For reservations visit celestyal.com or visit your local travel consultant.
