Volta ao mundo 2020 | 7 AWE OF APRIL Spring is the perfect time to take in the sites where ancient wonders of the world once stood, as well as at the center of modern spirituality. From mid- to late-April, the weather is mild and the visitors are fewer in numbers in Western Asia and the Mediterranean — a favorable time of year for this poignant stage of your journey. In a span of 15 days, you will have the incredible opportunity to tour the archeological site of Petra, cross the Nile toward the famed Valley of the Kings, stop at the Western Wall, the Christian Quarter and the golden-topped Dome of the Rock; take a guided tour of the mesmerizing Acropolis in Athens, and even visit the Vatican in Rome. POMPEII TO PANAMA As you sail around Italy’s boot, explore seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites as part of our FREE Unlimited Excursion menu, such as the imposing Mount Etna from Taormina and the ruins of Pompeii from Capri — one of the world’s most engrossing archeological experiences. Your journey into the history of ancient cultures and exploration of iconic places continues in the New World. Witness the once magnificent Mayan city of Quiriguá from Puerto Quetzal that is surrounded by lush flora. And in Cartagena walk the perimeter of the San Felipe Fortress, the largest Spanish fort in the Americas, which took more than 200 years to complete. Experience the world with more than 300 FREE UNLIMITED SHORE EXCURSIONS, plus four specially-created shoreside events. Optional Regent Choice Shore Excursions and Overland Programs are also available for additional ways to enhance your experience.
