Are you searching for a bare boat charter on which to sail the Turkish coast and among Aegean islands of Greece? Are you thinking of a handsome state-of-the-art bare boat chartered in Turkey? Of a bare boat chartered in Turkey and sailed to Greece? How about a bare boat with family accommodations or accommodations for six friendly friends? How about chartering a sailing yacht to cruise the Turkish coasts of ancient Lycia and Caria, coasts of isolated tree-fringed clear-water coves and white-sand beaches? Or how about chartering a yacht to sail Cleopatra's Route up the same coasts and into the Dodecanese islands of Greece? Which of Cleopatra's Routes, you might ask! There was the 46 BC route up those coasts of Asia Minor and into, first, the Greek Dodecanese, then known as the Scattered Islands, and second, into the the central Aegean's Cyclades, all while en route to Rome to plead Egypt's case before the Senate. With a child by Julius Caesar (at left) in tow, Caesarion by name. Fourteen years later Cleopatra returned to Asia Minor with Marc Antony (at right), she with her treasure barges, he with a huge armada. At the time they had three children of their own: Alexander Helios and his twin Cleopatra Selene as well as a younger brother Ptolemy Philadelphus. All four children remained behind in Alexandria. This second occasion saw Cleopatra's Route turn north at Kos and parallel Turkey's Ionian coast to Ephesus before dropping back to party at Greek Samos. Eventually, of course, some say after seven weeks, others say after seven months, they moved on to Athens and then further on to Actium. That was the end for Antony and Cleopatra and the beginning for Octavian, soon to become Caesar Augustus. Would you fancy a holiday bare boat cruising one of those routes? Would you fancy a holiday aboard a bare boat charter yacht proceeding leisurely from one clear-blue-sea locale to another clear-blue-sea locale at the crossroads of history? With your own children. Or without your own children. Caesarion, by the way, proved a threat to Roman succession and was put to death on Octavian's order. The other three children were placed in the custody of Octavian's sister Octavia as she had been the fourth wife of Marc Antony. None lived to a ripe old age. Well, we can put you aboard a bare boat for a holiday in Turkey and Greece to be remembered into old age. Join us at Gocek.
