Day 1 Embark in Limassol, Cyprus

Your luxurious super yacht, Emerald Azzurra, begins in the Cypriot city of Limassol.

Situated on the southern coast, Limassol is a picture-postcard view of modern Cyprus. Its cosmopolitan marina is lined with glitzy bars, cafes and restaurants, beautifully contrasted with its 14th century castle, a reminder of its Byzantine past.

Day 2-3 Port Said, Egypt

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Situated at the mouth of the Suez Canal, Port Said has a long, proud maritime heritage. This dramatic city was a cosmopolitan hub during the 19th and early 20th century, and today is a major Egyptian business centre.

History is etched into every aspect of Port Said. The city’s lighthouse is its oldest building dating back to the city’s creation, while the Coptic Orthodox Church features an icon of St Mary, which is believed to produce holy oil.

Day 4-5 Haifa (Tel Aviv), Israel

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Described as ‘Israel’s San Francisco’, Haifa is home to breathtaking scenery and fascinating culture. Set in the foothills of Mount Carmel, the country’s third-largest city features the Bah’ai Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a pilgrimage for those of Bah’ai faith.

From the top of Mount Carmel, the beauty of Haifa reveals itself with views from the Louis Promenade stretching from the Port of Haifa to Western Galilee. The German Colony is an absolute must-see.

Day 6-7 Ashdod (Jerusalem)

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
The coastal city of Ashdod plays a major role in the teachings of the Bible. It’s where the Philistines were said to have captured the Ark of the Covenant, and today it still marks the starting point for pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

Ashdod is awash with religious monuments such as Giv’at Yonah, the highest point in the city and believed to be the burial site of the prophet Jonah.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
