Visit the land of miracles – Galilee, the Jordan River, Mount of the Beatitudes and Tabgha, or venture to Nazareth, home of the young Jesus. See the largest hanging gardens in the world at Bahai Gardens of Haifa. The Panoram Center in Central Carmel offers some of the country’s best woman’s clothing stores. For antiques and crafts, head to the boutiques on Massada Street. South of Haifa, the artist village of Ein Hod offers hand blown glass, pottery, silver, gold and crafts. From French to Continental to Middle Eastern cuisine, dining choices abound. Fresh fish and grilled lamb dishes are the highlight. The best dessert is homemade kanafeh, a traditional ancient dish of baked sweet cheese, pistachio and honey.

The tiny Island of Bozcaada floats peacefully off the western coast of Turkey in the Dardanelles Straight that connects the Marmara to the Aegean. This charming port boasts untouched bays with rich marine life, delightful local culture, significant historical heritage, and world-class wine.

Explore ancient Kavala with its striking mountains, crystalline waters, and multicultural buildings hugging the cliffs.

Explore ancient Kavala with its striking mountains, crystalline waters, and multicultural buildings hugging the cliffs. Both the fortress and the Kavala aqueduct date back to the 16th Century. Visit the marketplace, stop for a coffee, stroll through the new shops and galleries. Look for ceramics, great wine, fine leather, white marble, handmade cigars, and designer clothing. The Castle of Kavala and the castle at Palaiochori are not to be missed. Then one of the many museums – the Archaeological Museum or the Municipal Museum top the list. The Imararet, the home built by Mohammed Ali Pasha in the 19th Century boasts Ottoman architecture and spectacular views of the sea. Linger over a meal of local specialties, stuffed eggplant or grilled seafood. Enjoy a glass of wine, a coffee and pastry as you absorb the harmony of Kavala.

Piraeus is the gateway to the ancient city of Athens, known as the “Cradle of Western Civilization” because of its immense impact on cultural and political achievements throughout the world. Due mainly to tourism and the 2004 Olympics, Greece has redeveloped many sites in Athens. A historian’s delight, Athens is home to such magnificent wonders as: the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the atmospheric winding streets of the Plaka, Temple of Olympian Zeus and Temple of Athena Nike, and the Archaeological Museum with the world’s finest collection of ancient artifacts.
