Ancient Cities of the Eastern Mediterranean

aboard Variety Voyager


Our Western civilization finds its origins in this part of the Mediterranean, from ancient times until today a crossroads for travel, trade, and cultural exchange. Over the millennia mighty empires waxed and waned, boundaries were drawn and shifted, and major religions were introduced, flourished, and collided. The history of the region is crucial to understanding the development of modern societies, those we visit on this voyage, and indeed our own. As we enjoy our journey through these storied waters, we will glean insights from the archaeological treasures left behind alongside experts in global democracy and Classical Studies, who will share an understanding of the Eastern Mediterranean and its place in our culture, both past and present.
