Laodicea (Rev. 3:14 - 22) will take you back to the first century. At Philadelphia (Rev. 3:7 - 12), your Bible will come alive as you read it in light of firsthand study. This city was located along the important trade route that linked Pergamum in the north with Laodicea to the south. In A.D. 17, an earthquake devastated twelve Asian cities, including Philadelphia, and for a time the people lived in fear of aftershocks. Philadelphia was rebuilt with help from Emperor Tiberius. At Sardis (Rev. 3:1 - 5), your thoughts will turn to the Old Testament period following the 586 B.C. destruction of Jerusalem. That was the time when the phrase “rich as Croesus” originated. Croesus (560 - 546 B.C..) was the king of Lydia, and Sardis was his capital. Gold was discovered in the Pactolus River at Sardis and it was here that coinage began, as we know it. Cyrus and the Persians defeated and captured Croesus for all his wealth and made Sardis the administrative centre for the western part of their empire. The fabled Royal Road connected Sardis with the Persian cities to the east. Sardis was the hardest hit of the twelve cities destroyed in the earthquake of A.D. 17. Emperor Tiberius, according to the Annals of the historian Tacitus, gave much relief towards its rebuilding. Your visit to Sardis will include the imperial court and the ancient Jewish synagogue. You will rest in the shade of the Temple of Artemis, while studying in the light of prophetic Scripture. Finally, enjoy dinner at one of Smyrna’s famous kebab or seafood restaurants. Overnight in Kusadasi


Day 9 - Miletus - Didyma - Kusadasi

(Breakfast and dinner included)

Drive to Miletus, home of ancient philosopher Thales (640 - 546 B.C.), one of the fathers of Greek geometry, astronomy, and philosophy. It was here, in the first Christian century, that the Apostle Paul, on his third missionary journey, called for the Ephesians elders and preached a powerful message to them (Acts 20:15 - 38).. It was also here that Paul left his friend Trophimus, who was too ill to continue (II Timothy 4:20). As a port at the mouth of the Meander River, Miletus was a natural outlet for Phrygian trade. Like the one at Ephesus, however, Miletus’s sea harbour eventually filled with silt, and commerce dwindled. The citys remote quietness makes it special to devout students of Scripture. Its ancient ruins include the marvelous 15, 000 - seat theatre. Nearby, at Didyma, visit the massive Temple to Apollo, one of the most impressive sites in Anatolia. Ordinary people did not reside in ancient Didyma. This was home only to a priestly family whose oracle came from Delphi and who lived in luxury, as they guarded their temple treasuries supplied by the people they deceived. Continue to Kusadasi for overnight.


Day 10 - Ephesus

(Breakfast and dinner included)

Ephesus (Rev. 2:1 - 7), major port city on the Aegean, was the commercial, political, and religious centre of all of Asia Minor. After a lunatic completely burned the Temple of Diana (Artemis) on the night that Alexander the Great was born in 356 B.C.., the Ephesians worked for 120 years to complete a magnificent reconstructed temple, one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. The city became part of the Roman Empire in the second century B.C. As a Roman capital of Asia Minor, Ephesus boasted a population approaching 250, 000 people. The Apostle Pauls first visit to Ephesus was brief—during his second missionary tour (Acts 18:19 - 21). His second visit lasted about three years—during his third missionary tour (Acts 19:1 to 20:31). Luke’s account of the worship of Diana appears in Acts 19:34 - 35. The Great Theatre (stadium) mentioned in Acts 19:29 - 31 could seat 25, 000 people. Walk the marble - paved street with grooves made by chariot wheels. See the Fountain of Trojan, the Library of Celsus and the Great Theatre. Visit the Chapel of the Virgin Mary (Double Church), where the Third Ancient Council convened. Enjoy St. Johns Basilica (built on the site of the Apostle John’s tomb) and ponder the remains of the Temple of Diana. Overnight in Kusadasi.


Day 11 - Thytira - Pergamon

(Breakfast and dinner included)

Today, we will visit our final two of the Seven Churches of Revelation. At Thyatira (Rev. 2: 18 - 28), you will see the ruins of an ancient commercial centre, located in the fertile valley where the trade route passed. One of the towns cloth and dye merchants was a woman named Lydia, who conducted business as far away as Philippi, where she became the first European convert to Christianity, during Pauls second missionary journey (Acts 16:11 - 15). A most memorable experience will be Pergamum, with its acropolis and Great Theatre, the steepest of the ancient world. Revelation 2:12 - 16 describes the city as “where Satan’s seat is, ” a reference to the altar of Zeus, where we pause for reflection on the fulfillment of Scripture. Nearby, visit the Red Basilica; once a pagan temple, it later converted into a Christian church. Finally, walk thru the Pergamum Asclepion, the famous medical centre of antiquity. Overnight in Kusadasi


Day 12 - Troy - Alexandra Troas - Assos - Canakkale

(Breakfast and dinner included)

Enjoy a fascinating visit to recent excavations of ancient Troy, made legendary by Homer’s story of Helen and the Trojans’ wooden horse. Then drive to Troas, founded about 300 B.C. by one of the generals of Alexandria the Great. During the Apostle Pauls second missionary journey, it was from Troas that he received the “Macedonian call” to Europe. This is where Lukes account changes from “they” to “we” (Acts 16:6 - 12), indicating that he joined Pauls team at Troas. Returning from Macedonia during his third journey, Paul was in Troas for a week, when the young man Eutychus fell from the third loft as Paul preached. Paul soon walked some thirty miles to Assos, where we will follow the apostle’s footsteps to the old city walls (Acts 20:5 - 14). You will walk the old marketplace of Assos and see the council chamber and Temple to Athena. Overnight in Canakkale.


Day 13 - Nicea - Istanbul

(Breakfast included)

Drive to Nicea through Bursa. At Nicea, you will see remains of Constantine’s palace, now covered by the water at the shore of Lake Iznik. It was here in this palace chapel that the First Ancient Church Council convened in A.D. 325 to produce the Nicene Creed. Enjoy Nicea’s St. Sophia Church, where the Seventh Church Council convened in 787. Continue to Istanbul. Overnight in Istanbul

The direct descendents of these Palace retainers are here to look after your needs and can be summoned with a quick call to Palace Services. They will draw a soothing bath, recommend the perfect meal or help you choose an ideal treatment at the Spa. Will pinpoint the best sights to see, or artifacts to treasure, and the best hunting grounds. They will plan a wondrous day out, and, if you like, accompany you bearing cold towels, iced drinks and a picnic lunch or caviar and a bottle of Pommery.
Throughout your stay, discreetly and unobtrusively, your butler will gladly guide you through the pleasures that lie within and without the Palace walls, no task too insignificant, no demand too unreasonable.
