Panarea Island: Saturday 16th June 2018 – Friday 22nd June 2018
Discover Roman and Greek Shipwrecks that have been lost for over 2000 Years. This deep-sea adventure will take you in a three-person, state-of-the-art air-conditioned mini sub to explore recently discovered ancient shipwrecks in the company of a noted archaeologist and a professional sub pilot. You will live aboard a luxury yacht or villa, depending on your programme choice; you will enjoy gourmet Mediterranean foods and learn about the culture and history of these exotic ancient places – not as a tourist, but as a participating crew member.
This inner space adventure will allow people intrigued with the allure of undersea exploration to become part of an archaeological team. By joining this programme, you will explore Roman shipwrecks laden with ancient amphora that have been lost for over 2000 years. Mysteries of where these ships were going, what they were carrying and how they possibly sank will be researched. As a SubSea Explorer, you will work with archaeologists to determine all that can be known about the various finds. Some artefacts will be removed from the sea-floor to be curated and displayed in regional exhibits.
A local expert will escort participants on a tour of historically interesting areas and museums. An onsite coordinator will attend to all guest needs during the week programme.
The 2018 programme will be carried out at Panarea Island in the Aeolian Islands off of the northern coast of Sicily*. Here, Aurora Trust has located and identified several Roman or Greek shipwrecks.
The islands are Italian tourist destinations in the summer. They are steeped in history and tradition and are fascinating to visit and enjoy. In addition to their ancient ruins, underground cisterns, museums, restaurants, and public festivals, the people make it an incredible place to spend a week or two.
An island villa is being leased to accommodate the participants. It will be located on the island where the sub is based. Guests will be met at the airport by a designated driver and driven to the ferry boat that will transport them to their destination island where they will be met by their host.
Transportation not included.
All food and beverages, including wine and beer, will be included.
Most meals will be served in local gourmet restaurants.
Lunches will be served on board the support vessel.
Breakfast will be served at the villa.
Persons wishing to have a private exclusive programme will be accommodated on a five star, 40 meter luxury yacht, which will provide living accommodations and meals for the participants. It will have 4 cabins capable of accommodating 10 guests. Any or all of the guests may participate in the sub survey programme.
The yacht will be located at or near the marina where the sub will be berthed. Guests who participate in the exclusive luxury yacht programme will be met at the island in Sicily.
