In fact we think they are among the most exciting, historic, iconic and evocative in the world. And they lend themselves to incredible tales, some true, some fable but all an integral part of our storytelling. You can immerse yourself in ancient civilisations, follow in the footsteps of great figures from history, live and breathe the myths and legends of Ancient Greece and the Mediterranean and journey to places where some of the Seven Wonders of the World once stood. One of those names from history is St Paul, one of Apostles and generally regarded as the second most important figure in Christianity after Jesus He was one of the first to spread the word of Christianity far and wide and was born in the year 5 AD in the Roman city of Tarsus in what is now Turkey. On this remarkable and awe-inspiring historical and religious journey across the eastern Mediterranean, we follow in his footsteps from Athens to Corinth and then to Thessaloniki, Kavala, the incomparable Istanbul, Dikili, Kusadasi which is the gateway to historic Ephesus and finally Patmos. Our specially designed excursions are central to your Celestyal experience with our expert guides taking you step by step through your voyage and really bringing history alive. We really mean it when we say ‘every moment is a destination’ and ‘every destination is a wonder’. 04 Thessaloniki 10 Kavala 16 Istanbul 24 Dikili 26 Kusadasi 32 Patmos 38 Athens CONTENTS
