Spend 4-nights in this beautiful seaside town, home to many cultural treasures. Visit the Lemesos Castle, the Medieval Museum, the Folk Art Museum and the Colossi Castle. Take a walk along the miles of beautiful beaches or visit lush municipal gardens. While here you will take a tour to Lefkosia. There will be leisure time to shop or visit some of the sites including the Archaeological Museum, the gate of Famagusta and the monument of Freedom. Stop by the village of Lefkara, well known for its lace and silverware. Be sure not to leave this island nation without sampling at least one of the many outstanding varieties of Cypriot wine.
Spend 2-nights in Athens. Visit the ancient Mediterranean metropolis highly recognized for its unique place in history. Spend your time at leisure or take advantage of the many optional excursions. Perhaps a one-day cruise around nearby islands, or take a tour of the city including the Acropolis and the Panathenaikon Stadium, the place of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Don’t forget to visit the Plaka (old city) to wander the cobblestone streets, peruse in the shops or dine in one of the many traditional Greek Tavernas.
What better way to see the Greek Islands in a short period of time. First you will arrive in Mykonos, known for its hundreds of chapels that dot the island. Visit the many chic boutiques or find a table at a taverna along the waterfront. Or perhaps, you can sample the local cuisine and enjoy the serenity of Cycladic Island Life. After Mykonos, you will sail to Rhodes and spend a full day. Perhaps you will take an optional excursion to the city of Rhodes and the rocky Acropolis of Lindos to visit the Temple of Athens. Next you will sail to Kusadasi, where you can take an excursion to the ancient city of Ephesus. From here you will visit Patmos and take an optional excursion to the Monastery and Cave where John the Divine wrote the Book of Revelations. (as an option, an alternative itinerary would visit Crete and Santorini instead of Rhodes. From Patmos you will sail to Heraklion, the capital of Crete. Take an optional excursion to the Palace of King Minos at Knossos, the center of the Minoan civilization. Finally, you will sail to Santorini, the volcano island, one of the most unforgettable places in the world. Walk the narrow streets of Fira or visit the beautiful village of Oia, perched on the rim of the caldera, offering panoramic views of breathtaking beauty.)
