Allow an expert guide to lead you through the enchanting city of Odessa – a confluence of European cultures with a fascinating, cosmopolitan history.

Starting in Ekaterina Square, see the statue of Queen Ekaterina II, the monument to Duc de Richeliu, and the Potemkin Steps made famous by Sergei Eisenstein's classic movie, Battleship Potemkin. Hear the history of Odessa's foundation and the important role played in its development by foreign citizens.

Opposite stands the imposing Odessa City Hall, with a nearby British cannon serving as a memorial to the Crimean War. Continue the gentle stroll to the Archeological Museum and the baroque Opera and Ballet Theater, designed by the Viennese architects Fellner and Helmer.

In the Greek Cultural Center you'll visit a museum illustrating the history of Filiki Eteria – a secret 19th-century organization established to overthrow Greece's Ottoman rulers. Then rejoin the coach to visit the Jewish Cultural Center and it's museum, Migdal Shorashim, which details the history of Odessa's Jewry. You'll also enjoy a short performance of the musical theater piece Migdal.

After enjoying lunch at a selection of restaurants, visit the elegant structure of the Arabic Cultural Center before arriving at the Arcadia district, where the Armenian Cultural Center is situated on a colorful plateau with a stunning ocean view. Enter a traditional Armenian church before heading to the German Cultural Center (Bavarian House) and enjoying a choir and organ performance at the Lutheran Church of St. Pauli.
