Athens, the capital and largest city of Greece, is also one of the world's oldest cities with an unparalleled history that spans around 3,400 years.
Experiencing long periods of sunshine throughout the year, and known as "the cradle of Western civilisation", it is a 'must-see' destination for world travellers.
The red sand-stone Treasury, carved into a vertical rock face, is one of the world’s most recognised tourist attractions.
Located in Egypt to the west of the Sinai Peninsula, the Suez Canal, measuring 163 km in length and 300 metres width at its narrowest point, serves as a two-way water transportation route between Europe and Asia.
It is flanked by the Western Ghats on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west and it enjoys a moderate equatorial climate.
It is a blend of modern India, while the old quarter maintains a colonial 'feel'.
It essentially comprises two parts, north and south of the Great Bitter Lake that acts as a buffer to the canal, protecting it from the effects of tidal currents.Successive waves of migration over several centuries of people from all parts of Kerala and most of India has resulted in all being rather more cosmopolitan in outlook.This is seen in many of the women becoming more fashion-conscious and not wearing the traditional Kerala, but rather western clothing.Cruise: Mediterranean & Southeast Asia Cruise H811N Departure Date: Duration: 28 nights Ship: Sapphire Princess Star rating: Departs: Singapore Returns: Rome (Civitavecchia) Ports of call: 12 BONUS up to AUD0 onboard cabin credit for this cruise!Princess Cruises "2019 Round World Cruise" - Early Booking Sale has started!
