Come Cruise the Mediterranean with me!
The Italians have a phrase: "la dolce vita." It means The Sweet Life. And I'm convinced we'll experience that on the Mediterranean Cruise my husband and I will be escorting next April.
The ports are amazing: Athens, Sicily, Crete and Turkey. I've been studying up on Turkey as most reviews say this was the reviewer's favorite.
The picture below is a picture of the port - Kusadasi
Most people take a shore excursion to Ephesus, but all leave time to shop here (Turkish rugs, leather goods, copper trays, traditional Turkish tea services and intricate silver and gold jewelry.) You'll even be able to watch the Turkish rugs being made.
From the port to Ephesus you will pass olive, peach and lemon orchards.
Ephesus itself was once one of the largest and most important cities of the ancient world with a population of half a million people during its peak. You'll see where the Apostle Paul preached, the Virgin Mary lived in her last years, walk the streets where Alexander the Great walked and along the Arcadian Way, where once Mark Antony and Cleopatra rode in procession.
So here's the link to all the pricing and information again. There's still time to join us on our excellent adventure!
