The epic journey of St. Paul tells of many trials and tribulations. His teachings inspired countless followers and were the inspiration behind The Temple of Artemis in Ephesus - one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. However, his journey also incited riots and the Apostle was forced to flee from angry merchants. Our Steps of Paul cruise takes you on a mesmerising journey of your own and recounts fascinating insights into St Paul’s experiences along his journey - plus much more! Discover the romance and mystery that surrounds the ancient worlds of Greece and Turkey, and visit iconic landmarks including Hagia Sophia, the Acropolis and the Holy Grotto of the Apocalypse. For history buffs that love an adventure, the Steps of St Paul is an enchanting experience that offers much more than a typical run-of-the-mill cruise.
