With the exceptional presence of Christophe Barbier, French journalist and editorialist.

Let this exceptional 7-day cruise take you from the Eternal City to the City of the Gods, between two of the most dazzling ancient Mediterranean civilisations. Aboard Le Champlain, you will sail along the Italian shores to Greece and its treasures.

From Civitavecchia you will head for Naples, one of the oldest cities in the world, where Baroque churches, romantic plazas and ancient palaces meet. The host of monuments and landmarks bear witness to the richness of this city dominated by Mount Vesuvius, which stands over 1,000 metres tall.

Catania is the next port of call on your cruise. Located on the slopes of Mount Etna, the town has been destroyed seven times by the volcano’s eruptions! Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is a town of incomparable cultural richness.

Le Champlain will then cross the Ionian Sea towards Katakolon, its first Greek point of call. From the port, you will head to Olympia, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, whose ruins are a testament to its former grandeur. On the following day, from Itea, another exceptional site awaits: Delphi.

Your ship will then sail along the astonishing Corinth Canal, a famous sea channel dug out by men in the 19th century, and arrive in Nafplion. From Nafplion you will be able to visit two ancient jewels: the Epidaurus Theatre and Mycenae, the royal city of House of Atreus.

Your cruise will end in Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis and its monuments that form the most extraordinary architectural and artistic collection bequeathed by Ancient Greece to the rest of the world.
