With a departure from Athens, PONANT invites you to discover archaeological and historical sites – most of them UNESCO World Heritage sites – on a new 12-day cruise to Greece, Italy, Malta, Tunisia, Algeria and Spain. You will be captivated by an unforgettable voyage aboard Le Lapérouse in the Mediterranean.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. During this cruise, you will discover the theatre of Epidaurus, considered one of the masterpieces of Greek architecture, during a stopover in Nafplio; marvel at Greek, Norman and Baroque influences during a walk on the island of Ortygia in Syracuse, and explore the ruins of Hippo Regius in Annaba. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

Your cruise begins with trips from Nafplio to two of Greece's major sites: the ruins of Mycenae and the theatre at Epidaurus. Then Le Lapérouse sets sail for Syracuse, a truly impressive ancient city, whose historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ship then heads for Valletta, the capital of Malta, which is entirely listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to a number of historic sites: St John's Cathedral, the Grand Master's Palace and the churches of Our Lady of Victory, St Catherine and the Jesuits. From here, you head for Porto Empedocle, gateway to the legendary Greek temples of Agrigento: some of the most fascinating ruins in the Mediterranean.

Le Lapérouse resumes its journey to head for the Tunisian shores and capital, Tunis. Rome’s great rival, Ancient Carthage, is yours to discover as you visit its ruins, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your journey then continues along the coast of nearby Algeria to Annaba, where you visit the archaeological site of Hippo, one of Roman Africa’s main cities.

After a stopover in Palma de Mallorca, the jewel of the Balearic archipelago with its famous cathedral, you head for Tarragona, an ancient Roman city and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Your cruise ends in Valencia, a city with a remarkable architectural heritage.
