Spend 3-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 on the harbor and enjoy the serenity of Cycladic island life. After Mykonos, 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. After Patmos 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. From there 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. The final port of call for the cruise is Santorini where you will disembark for a 3 night stay.
Santorini, the volcano island, is 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.
