This 13-day itinerary combining history and archaeology will take you from Malta to Jordan. During your cruise, Le Bellot will visit several unmissable sites in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea.

Valletta, the capital of Malta, will be our departure point before heading straight to Crete. Your call in Heraklion will be the opportunity to visit the Minoan Palace of Knossos, remembering the legend of the Minotaur.

Le Bellot will then reach Kusadasi, in Turkey. An old fishing village with history going back 5,000 years, not far from the Ephesus site, the town is now one of the country’s most famous seaside resorts.

In Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands, you will discover the medieval town, built by the Knights of St John, surrounded by ramparts.

From Beirut, the Lebanese capital, do not miss the visit to Byblos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inhabited since the Neolithic era, this is one of the oldest cities in the world. One can observe the many vestiges of an extremely rich past, marked by the dissemination of the Phoenician alphabet.

After sailing through the legendary Suez Canal, you will call at Ain Sukhna, the ideal starting point for a visit to the Egypt of the Pharaohs.

Conclude your journey by disembarking in Aqaba. After your cruise, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Wadi Rum desert, or the ancient caravan city of Petra, two must-see jewels of this fascinating country at the crossroads of history.
