Embark on a one-way voyage from Piraeus (Athens) to Dubai with a late-night stay in Safaga and an overnight in Cairo. Exploring sites along the Med and through the Red, you'll get your Greek glow going, and cross the famous Suez Canal before discovering the unique Arabian Gulf.

A Nile away from Egypt’s glorious past

Amid the legendary Pyramids of Giza, maze-like museums, and the world's most famous river to cover, it's not hard to lose track of time in Cairo. But with two full days to explore this effervescent mega-city, you might as well embrace the hypnotic bustle and take some time to roam the ancient Khan El Khalili bazaar, haggle for those unique finds, pick a shisha bar to loiter in, stretch your evening into a wild night out, then see the sunrise by the Nile to the sound of dueling calls to prayer.

Greece is a country in southeastern Europe with thousands of islands throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas. Influential in ancient times, it's often called the cradle of Western civilization. Athens, its capital, retains landmarks including the 5th-century B.C. Acropolis citadel with the Parthenon temple. Greece is also known for its beaches, from the black sands of Santorini to the party resorts of Mykonos

Greece is known for being the cradle of Western Civilization, the birthplace of democracy, the Olympic Games, and its ancient history and magnificent temples. Ancient temples in Greece include the Parthenon at the Acropolis in Athens, the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, and the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion.

Port Said is an Egyptian city at the northern end of the Suez Canal, on the Mediterranean Sea. A concrete lighthouse dates from the canal’s opening in 1869. On the waterfront is the former department store Simon Arzt. Now disused, the art deco building offers a glimpse into the past, to when Port Said was a cosmopolitan trading hub. Nearby is the Islamic-style Suez Canal Authority Building, with its green domes.

Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.
