Land Arrangements

Shore Excursions

Shore excursions are included in each port of call. Where suitable, some excursions will be available at an additional cost. Descriptions of the tours will be sent with your final documents or made available on the Voyages to Antiquity website.

Lunches on full-day tours can be a picnic lunch provided by Aegean Odyssey or at a local restaurant. On some, where lunchtime is in a place offering a wide choice of restaurants, we have not included lunch and left it up to you (such as in Rome and Florence).

In places such as Venice and Athens, you may wish to remain in the city at the end of the morning sightseeing rather than return to the ship and in these instances lunch will also be under your own arrangements.

Please note that these programmes are planned far in advance of your visit, and we reserve the right to change, cancel, or substitute an included excursion at any time. There is no refund or credit available for non-use of an included excursion.

Pre-Post Cruise Hotel Stays 

Our included pre- or post-cruise hotel stays include breakfast, porterage, tax and service charges, a half-day tour plus hospitality desk services during your stay.

Guests booked in Balcony Class (categories A to D) stay at a Deluxe property for the included pre- or post-cruise hotel stays.

Guests in categories E to M will be in First Class or Deluxe hotels. Guests travelling together should advise their travel agent or Voyages to Antiquity at the time of booking.

Please note that many hotels do not allow check-in prior to 3:00pm and guests with early arrivals may have to wait a short while before they can check-in.

Optional hotel stays are sometimes offered for guests who wish to extend their journeys. The optional package includes room, breakfast, service charges and taxes. Airport, hotel, and ship transfers are only available for guests with Voyages to Antiquity air arriving or departing on brochure package dates
