Ports

Rome

Civitavecchia is the closest port to the Eternal city, Rome. Rome has been the focal point for many of the world's greatest artists, architects, rulers and philosophers. See Michelangelo’s masterly ceiling, the famous Swiss Guards in the Vatican and the Imperial splendours of the Colosseum. Climb the Spanish steps. And don’t forget to throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain to guarantee your return to this sublime city.

Civitavecchia

Civitavecchia is the closest port to Rome. It serves mostly as a gateway, however there are still a few points of interest in this seaside town. Most notably the Fort of Michelangelo, built in the 1500s as a major defence post. Also of interest are the ancient ruins of the Baths of Traiano, a complex of Roman Baths once used for their therapeutic benefits.

Paphos

Here, where Aphrodite was once born from the foam of the sea, you will walk along the traces of ancient Paphos* today. Countless pilgrims streamed to the places of pilgrimage in honour of the goddess of love more than 2,000 years ago, and even today magnificent, colourful mosaics such as those in the House of Dionysus recall this thriving age on the island. A hike through nature on the island promises idyllic hours. The route leads you through the deserted Turkish villages Phasil and Androlikou, past olive and almond trees, on to Neochorio. Enjoy a time of peace and quiet and the magnificent views of the blue ocean as you walk on the island of sun.

Rhodes

Known as the sun island there are hardly any days when the sun does not shine. The third largest Greek Island, Rhodes today offers its visitor an abundance of year round leisure activities. The warm hospitality of the islanders, the natural beauty of the island and the monuments from her long and turbulent history are not to be missed.
