Overview

With featured guests Christian Makarian, French author and journalist, and Professor Gilles Kepel, renowned specialist in the Middle East and contemporary Islam.

In Athens, join us aboard Le Champlain for an unforgettable 11-day cruise. It will be an opportunity to discover major ancient sites from the great civilisations that spread across the Mediterranean and contributed to shape our modern world.

After a stop in Nafplion, a charming and well-preserved city dominated by an impressive Venitian citadel, Le Champlain will take you to Syros, a cosmopolitan island with a rich history. The Cyclades capital will surprise you with its authenticity and neo-classical architecture.

You will discover Patmos, known as the 'Jerusalem of the Aegean Sea'. This island, where Saint John is said to have written the Apocalypse, offers unique landscapes combining white sandy beaches and rocky coves.

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.  

You will cross the world-famous Suez Canal, built by Ferdinand de Lesseps and widened recently to facilitate trade, before reaching Safaga in Egypt, and Aqaba in Jordan, the end of your voyage.
