Ancient Sands As you make your way from Indonesia to Oman, you will come upon destinations that are unlike any other. Fujairah is the only one of the UAE's seven Emirates not located on the Arabian Gulf — instead it is set amongst the beautiful, imposing Hajar mountains, the Emirate is surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Oman. Compare that landscape to that of Petra, home to the famed Wadi Rum desert and ruins of Petra, which is lapped by the stunning Red Sea. These destinations are the perfect precursors to your overnights in Luxor and Jerusalem. Mythical Lands Impressive architecture, historic sites and its glamorous atmosphere make the Mediterranean the perfect region to culminate your journey. Step back into ancient times in Limassol, the land of Aphrodite, where according to legend the Greek goddess of love and fertility was born in the breaking waves. Be sure to witness the ruins of Kourion, where you can view firsthand the remaining pavement mosaics that are absolutely stunning. In Rhodes, stand at the site of the former Colossus and tour the famous Palace of the Grand Masters, which remains a must-see. During your extended call in Istanbul, explore lesser-known sites, such as the Chora Museum, the Hippodrome and the Underground Cisterns, as well as the magnificent Hagia Sophia, sometimes regarded as the Eighth Wonder of the World. And in Rome, walk through the hallowed and private papal summer palace of Castel Gandolfo, recently opened to the public by Pope Francis. Peek inside the pope’s bedroom, the gallery of popes’ portraits, and the splendor of the Barberini Gardens.
