Disconnect to reconnect on the luxurious Ponant

Cruise the Mediterranean from 15 July 2019 to 22 July 2019
8 days / 7 nights

Departure Port : Civitavecchia (Rome)
Arrival Port : Athens

Ship : LE LYRIAL

This voyage is designed to create opportunities for shared learning and discovery across generations. Grandparents, parents, and children learn together about the history, literature, mythology, and culture of the Mediterranean world while experiencing firsthand the monuments left behind by the civilizations that have risen and fallen here. From the ruins and museums of Rome and Pompeii, Le Lyrial takes us to Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympics, and home to the ancient Sanctuary of Zeus – a vast expanse of well-preserved altars and temples. On Crete and Santorini, we discover the Bronze Age civilization of the Minoans, and in Ephesus we explore one of the best preserved Roman cities in all of the Aegean. Our signature Young Explorers™ Program of activities both aboard ship and ashore is focused on engaging children. And lectures by Professor Kathleen Lynch of the University of Cincinnati inform and entertain the entire family.
