"Paul’s journey to Rome that concludes the book of Acts is one of the most exciting stories in ancient literature. It recounts the fateful shipwreck that occurred west of Crete. Our tour will pick up the story on the island of Malta, where Paul and the other 275 survivors came ashore. From Malta we will visit each of Paul’s stops on his way to Rome mentioned in Acts 28. We first ferry to Sicily to see the archaeological wonders of Syracuse, Agrigento, and Taormina. After the ferry crossing of the Strait of Messina, we come to Reggio Calabria. In the Naples area we will see the volcanized remains of Pompeii, the fabled Naples Archaeological Museum, and the port of Puteoli, where Paul made landfall. We will then follow the Appian Way to Rome, stopping at the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns. Our four days in Rome are packed with visits to all the major archaeological sites. We will also tour Rome’s ports of Portus and Ostia, where we will see the Late Antique synagogue. Our twelve days will be filled with fascinating sites, beautiful scenery, and exquisite food, so I invite to join me as we sail and walk in Paul’s footsteps."
