Today you sail due north to the Turkish peninsular town of Dacta, where you go through customs and re-enter Turkey. Continuing to sail across the deep blue waters of the Aegean we hug the northern coast of the peninsula until we reach the Turkish town of Knidos. After lunch on board, we explore the extensive ruins at Knidos, where Sostratos, the architect of the Lighthouse of Alexandria (another of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), and Eudoxus, the astronomer who first calculated Earth’s circumference, were both born. Knidos was one of the most visited Aegean harbors of the Greek and Roman periods, and the old town extends four miles along the water front. Much of historic Knidos survives, including several ruined temples, two theatres, and fortified walls with the old avenues crossing at perpendicular. Spend the night either in the harbor or at a nearby picturesque cove. Overnight aboard gulet in Knidos.
