Founded towards the end of the 11th century A.D., the basilica has now been an important religious pilgrimage site for nearly a millennium. An exterior viewing of Bari’s old Norman castle is also on the tour itinerary.

 BAR02 - ALBEROBELLO (4.5 hours) - Bari, Italy
    Leave the port of Bari for a scenic 1-hour coach ride through the Italian countryside to Alberobello, a town in the Apulia region that forms the top of the “heel” of the boot of Italy. Thanks to its distinctive mortarless round stone houses with conical roofs, known as “trulli”, the town was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1996. Your tour includes a guided walk through the delightful streets of this most unusual village – plus a visit to St. Antonio, the only “trullo” church in the world. Many of these “trullo” houses are topped by a so-called “pinnacolo” – a sort of white cap or sphere – and all of them have curious symbols, possibly good-luck charms, painted on the roofs. Time permitting, you will also be taken on a short sightseeing tour of Bari by coach before you return to the port and your ship. Click HERE to watch the video

 BAR04 - THE “SASSI” IN MATERA (approx. 4 hours) - Bari, Italy
   Enjoy a 1-hour drive to Matera, the city of the weird and wonderful “Sassi”, caves and the first town in the world to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. These caves were inhabited from the Neolithic times right up until 1952. Perhaps because of its unique and tangible history, the atmosphere here is extraordinary and the place exudes a mystic air. We will either visit a furnished Sassi cave museum house and one rocky church that are symbol of the local culture. Many film directors have chosen to set films in Matera as it is such an evocative place and Mel Gibson’s controversial film, “The Passion of the Christ”, was shot here. Please note: guests will be met by guides in Matera; the bus drive is not guided. This tour is not suitable for passengers with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair; long periods of walking.

At 60 metres deep, marvel at the cave chambers and the myriad of alabaster stalagmites and stalactites encrusted with calcite crystals. Back above ground we will travel on to Polignano a Mare, a lovely town perched high on a rock with wonderful views over the sea. Choose a guided tour of the village or to explore the pretty whitewashed streets on your own, meandering under the flowered arches and enjoying the hillside terrace that overlook the sea. Please note: excursion not recommended for guests who are claustrophobic or with walking difficulties. The itinerary inside the caves is on uneven, slippery path. Click HERE to watch the video

   Spend a few hours off the ship and follow the trail of ancient Olympians on this fascinating tour to the archaeological remains of Olympia, only a short coach drive from Katakolon. Ancient Olympia is the town that gave rise to and hosted the Olympic Games in classical times and is still the place where the Olympic torch is lit for our modern-day Summer Olympics, which were reinstated in 1896. Although Ancient Olympia was already re-discovered in 1766, excavation work only began in 1829 and responsibility for the site then passed to the “German Archaeological Institute at Athens” in 1870. Your trip around this UNESCO World Heritage Site will give you a chance to see the ruins of the Temple of Zeus, the gymnasium, the hippodrome and the stadium, which was designed to hold up to 40,000 spectators. The tour also includes a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Olympia, which was opened in 1982 and is home to an astounding collection of artefacts found in the course of excavation work. Among the museum’s most notable exhibits are particularly fine collections of beautifully detailed sculptures and bronzes as well as numerous terracotta artefacts and mosaics. The complex also includes a book and souvenir shop, which you may also like to visit. Your Olympic tour comes to a close with a scenic return drive to the port and your ship. Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair. It is not available for calls falling on a Monday morning.

 JTR04 - THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF AKROTIRI (approx. 3.5 hours) - Santorini, Greece
    Popular as a tourist destination due to its lovely beaches, relaxed atmosphere and wonderful weather, the beautiful Greek island of Santorini is also known for the ancient city of Akrotiri, which is situated at the southern end of the island and forms the destination of this half-day tour. A tender will first take you on the quick ride from the ship to Athinios port, from where you will continue on an approx. 20-minute coach ride to ancient Akrotiri. Once a thriving settlement during the Minoan Bronze Age, the town was buried by a tremendous volcanic eruption in the middle of the second millennium B.C.. The cloak of lava and ash that descended on the settlement served to preserve the site, which includes pristine frescoes, pottery, furniture, an advanced drainage system and even some three-storey buildings, all of which have been uncovered since excavation work began in 1967. The 1.5-hour stay at this Minoan settlement will give you plenty of time to have a good look around and soak up the special atmosphere of this prehistoric location. The visit will be followed by a little bit of free time to visit the nearby modern village of Akrotiri, after which you will head for the village of Fira where your guide will tell you how to take the cable car down the port to catch the tender back to your ship. Please note: there may be long queues at the cable car station or to pick up the tender boat. This tour includes tender embarkation/disembarkation and walking on cobblestone streets with steps so is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair.

 JTR05 - BEST OF SANTORINI (approx. 6.5 hours) - Santorini, Greece
     Exciting, exclusive, edifying: three attributes that not only aptly describe this tour, but also the Greek island of Santorini itself, which was created when the crater left by a huge volcanic eruption collapsed, leaving only the rim, a so-called caldera. After a short boat ride to Athinios port, you’ll continue by coach to explore the island’s history, capital and dramatic landscape. First up is ancient Akrotiri, a town that flourished during the Minoan Bronze Age, but then fell victim to a major volcanic outbreak that covered it ash in the middle of the 2nd millennium B.C.. Since excavation work began in 1967, many extremely well preserved artefacts have been uncovered, including frescoes and even some three-storey buildings. You’ll have about 1.5 hours to enjoy this prehistoric site before you move on to Fira, Santorini’s capital, for more free time to spend as you please. The pretty lanes are fun to walk down, the cafés great for a pit-stop and the views of the Kamenis, twin volcanic islets in the bay, spectacular. Last up is Oia, a blue-and-white village in Cycladic style perched on the very edge of the caldera. After a guided walk through its pretty cobbled streets, a stop at a local winery will give you a chance to sample some local treats and take part in a wine-tasting session before a motorboat takes you back to the ship. Please note: as this tour involves getting on and off a tender (boat) plus some walking on cobbled streets with steps, it is considered to be unsuitable for guests with mobility problems or using a wheelchair. This tour is available only for guests cruising on the MSC Fantasia with calls in Santorini and on following calls with MSC Armonia : 14.04.2014 + 23.04.2014 + 02.05.2014 + 11.05.2014 + 20.05.2014 + 29.05.2014 + 07.06.2014.

After a short boat sail to Athinios port, you will board a coach to reach Kamari Beach where you will enjoy approx. 3 hours relaxing in the sun. Kamari is a very popular beach of black-sand and you will appreciate the beauty of the landscape during your stay. A delicious Greek-style lunch will be served in an adjacent tavern on the beach to complete your Greek experience. A coach transfer will take you to Fira where you will take the cable car down the port to catch the tender back to your ship. Please note: there may be long queues at the cable car station or to pick up the tender boat.

 JTR07 - BEACH TIME IN LOVELY SANTORINI: approx. 6 hours, lunch included - Santorini, Greece
     Blue skies and sunshine, breathtaking views and time to relax on a stunning beach make great reasons to join this leisurely tour of Santorini. After a short tender transfer to Athinios port, a coach will take you past Fira and the village of Imerovigli en route to Oia at the northern end of the island. Teetering on the crest of the volcanic caldera, the village affords glorious views of the bay and the Aegean Sea. Free time is scheduled for you to spend in Oia, walking through its pretty lanes, enjoying the blue and white of its Cycladic architecture, going shopping or stopping for a rest at one of the enticing cafés. Moving on, you’ll then head south to the striking black-pebble beach at Perivolos. Served by a varied infrastructure, the tranquil beach surroundings are perfect for doing whatever you like. Your 3-hour stay will include a complimentary umbrella and sunbed as well as free snacks and drinks served exclusively for you at a nearby beach-front café. But facilities for windsurfing, jet-skiing and scuba diving are also available, the cost of which is not covered by the price of the tour. Last up on your Santorini outing is the island’s capital of Fira, where you can either take a cable car straight back to the port or choose to explore the town and then return to your ship. Please note: there may be long queues at the cable car station or to pick up the tender boat. This tour includes tender embarkation/disembarkation and walking on cobblestone streets with steps so is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair.

 PIR02 - PLAKA, ACROPOLIS & ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM (approx. 6 hours) - Piraeus, Greece
   Situated only a short distance from Athens, the port of Piraeus makes a perfect starting point for a visit to the Greek capital and, of course, the world-famous Acropolis, an ancient citadel that sits atop a rocky hill that rises 150 metres above the city in the Attica Basin. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is not only home to the archaeological remains of several ancient buildings, but also the location of the amazing Parthenon, the symbol of Athens. Built between 447 and 432 B.C., the Parthenon temple was originally dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena, was then converted to a Christian church in honour of the Virgin Mary in the 5th century A.D. and was finally turned into a mosque, for which a minaret was added to the complex, in the 15th century. Today, the Parthenon is widely seen to be an abiding symbol of ancient Greece and as the birthplace of modern democracy. To save your feet, the scenic tour will take you to see all the main attractions of this profoundly historic city from the comfort of a modern coach. You will also have time to visit the amazing National Archaeological Museum – an archive of rare artefacts that knows no rival – and the meticulously restored old part of Athens, the so-called Plaka district. The beautiful old buildings in Neoclassical style, narrow lanes and archaeological remains that characterise the district give the place an old-world feel that is sure to capture your imagination. Your tour ends with your return to Piraeus and your ship. Please note: the tour includes a long, sometimes challenging walk on even uneven ground so not recommended for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair. Click HERE to watch the video

 PIR03 - CORINTH CANAL BY BOAT  (approx. 5.5 hours) - Piraeus, Greece
    Leave the port of Piraeus and enjoy a 1.5-hour drive by coach through the Greek countryside to Corinth Canal, where a short stop will be made to observe the boats that will very likely be passing through the narrow waterway. Separating the Peloponnese peninsula from the Greek mainland, the canal is 6.4 km in length, only 21.3 metres in width and was dug at sea level, which removed the need to build additional locks along its course. After swapping your coach for a small boat, you will embark on a leisurely and enjoyable trip along the canal. The steep embankments of the waterway are a testament to the engineering nightmare that building the canal posed. A snack will be served during your boat trip, at the end of which you will begin your return journey to Piraeus and the ship. Click HERE to watch the video

After the city tour, you will continue on to Athens’ premiere landmark: the imposing Acropolis, a plateau that overlooks the town at a height of 150 metres. Among various other examples of classical Grecian architecture, the site is home to the world-famous Parthenon, a huge temple dedicated to the ancient Greek goddess, Athena, and one of the world’s greatest cultural monuments.

 PIR16 - BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF ATHENS AND PLAKA (approx. 4 hours) - Piraeus, Greece
    Spend a few hours on dry land to experience Athens from two very different perspectives: from the lofty heights of Mount Lycabettus, the tallest peak in the vicinity, and then at ground level in the city’s sprawling historical quarter, the so-called Plaka District. Your Athenian adventure begins with a round-up of the city’s main sights by coach, after which you will head out to the foothills of Mount Lycabettus. The Lycabettus Funicular Railway will then be responsible for aiding your ascent up the mountain – a spine-tingling experience in itself.

 PIR18 - DELUXE VISIT TO THE ACROPOLIS & CORINTH CANAL: approx. 7 hours, lunch not included - Piraeus, Greece
      Take some time out to visit two of the most famous places in Greece on a tour devoted to delivering maximum entertainment and insight into the chosen locations: the perfectly proportioned Parthenon and the thoroughly impressive Corinth Canal. After covering the short distance from Piraeus to Athens’ upper city, you’ll pass through the Propylaea Gateway to reach the monument that embodies classical Greece: the Parthenon atop the Acropolis. Dating back to 432 B.C., the imposing Parthenon overlooks and affords gorgeous views of the no less beautiful Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and Athens’ old town. Next up is the colossal structure of the Corinth Canal. Separating the Peloponnesian peninsula from mainland Greece, the narrow canal was carved out of solid rock and completed in 1893, but only after many and varied obstacles had been overcome. After boarding a local boat in the village of Isthmia, prepare to be awe-struck as you cruise down the canal with perpendicular walls rising steeply to either side. Once back on terra firma, you’ll also have a chance to take some photos from the lofty height of a bridge spanning the canal.
