From AUD $

Best times: Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep

Follow in the footsteps of one of the greatest biblical icons in history. CATW offers a glimpse, not only of the sights of present-day Aegean cities and landscapes, but something of the feeling and sense that could have been Paul’s as he travelled in the Hellenistic Roman world of the Emperor Nero. St. Paul spent most of his Christian life travelling in the lands of present day Turkey however we take a wider view of his entire travels starting with Istanbul through Adana, Cappadocia, Konya, Antalya, Pamukkale, Kusadasi, Izmir, Ayvalik and onto Mars Hill, Corinth, Bema, Philippi, and Thessaloniki. Our journey through the same routes will not be as difficult as Paul’s original travels via foot.
