Walk in Paul’s footsteps Visit the Ancient Sites of Paul’s First Journey This unique Biblical tour is most often operated over 6 days starting in Cappadocia after a stop in Istanbul, and following St. Paul’s travels return during his first missionary journey from Cappadocia west to Lystra and Derbe where little remains today, then west to Iconium (modern day Konya) and then towards Pisidian Antioch (modern day Yalvac) before heading south to the Mediterranean port city of Antalya (Attalia) If you have 3 extra days, the tour could reach as far as Antioch of Syria (actually Modern day Hatay/Antakya in SE Turkey), though the distance and travel to reach here is excessive. We recommend instead spending extra time at the beginning or end in Antalya on the beach! Hotels used are in the larger towns nearby as a few sites have no modern or ancient remains! This tour can be designed per your desires and timing, just let us know. You may consider extending this trip by adding time in Istanbul or Ephesus using direct flights: see the tour extension details at: Istanbul Extenstion / Ephesus Extension / Antalya Extension The tour follows the general outline of Acts 13 & 14.
