Remains of the ancient harbor of Alexandria Troas, Asia Minor

In the New Testament it is mentioned five times as Troas. The term "Troas" was added to "Alexandria" in order to distinguish it from other cities named "Alexandria." It was here, on Paul's second missionary journey, that in a vision he received a call to proceed to Europe (Acts 16:8–11). 

As Paul was traveling from Corinth to Jerusalem at the end of his third journey he stopped in Troas for seven days (Acts 20:6–12). Acts records that during Paul's teaching, in an upper room on the third floor of a building, that Eutychus ("Good Luck") fell to his death - but was revived by Paul! From Troas Paul walked (31.2 mi. [50 km.]) to Assos where he met up with his traveling companions who had traveled by ship.

Later, when Paul was in prison in Rome, he requested Timothy to bring the cloak, books, and parchments which he had left with Carpus in Troas — among the last recorded requests of Paul (2 Timothy 4:13).

Istanbul is the only city in the world that is located in both Europe and Asia. You will have an opportunity to view both sides of this marvelous city from your private boat. Board on a cruise along the shores of the stunning Bosphorus Strait and take in the sights as you enjoy your refreshments.

On the European side, you will view many palaces, old mansions, and modern villas. Watch for the first intercontinental bridge that connects Europe and Asia.

You will spot Dolmabahce Palace, formerly an opulent 19th-century Rococo palace, and now a museum. Then, the boat will return around at Sariyer fishing village to cruise back along the Asian side.
If you gaze to your left, there you will spot the georgeous Beylerbeyi Palace, one of the finest palaces of the Sultans.

You will also enjoy your asumptous dinner on board the boat, while viewing the magnificent city of Istanbul by night.

Chora Church (Kariye Museum), Istanbul

The finest examples of Byzantine mosaics that have remained to the present day are the ones found in the Chora Church (Chora Monastery). This building was used for a time as a mosque and was known as the Kariye Camisi. Following the Second World War the building was repaired and restored and opened as a museum. The walls and the domes of this structure are ornamented with mosaics. These pictures are very alive and they portray the lives of Jesus and Mary, the death of Mary.
