Day 1 Athens | Embark

Walking in the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle arguing about who was the greatest philosopher. Ancient Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, is a city for all eternity. Explore ruins and discover the echoes of the ancients in the modern city Athens has become. 

Day 2 At sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Star Flyer offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship. Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges and a peaceful library.

Day 3 Dikili

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Dikili is a sleepy little beach town, authentically Turkish, with its harbor lined with open-air restaurants and shops full of local delicacies. Visit nearby Bergama for its two main monuments: the Acropolis perched at a height of 280 meters, and the Asklepion, thought to be an ancient center of healing. 

Day 4 Myrina Limnos

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
It was Zeus who hurled Hephaestus from Mt. Olympus to land on Limnos, leaving the god of metalworking with a permanent limp. Perhaps he was nursed to health by excellent red and white wines grown on Limnos' rich volcanic soils. The town of Myrina sits under the winding white ramparts of the Kastro, built in 1186. But even earlier ruins - one of the most ancient sites in Greece - lie in nearby Poliohni.

Day 5 Skiathos

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The most sophisticated of the Sporades abounds with trendy shops where barely-clad visitors taking time off from the nearby beaches shop for wisps of clothing and jewelry. Explore a few blocks inland and find charming flower-decked houses and gardens overflowing with fruit trees. 

Day 6 Skopelos

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The bay protecting the town of Skopelos feels like a giant natural amphitheater, emphasizing the beautiful harbor town. A picturesque island with abundant olive, almond and fruit trees, dozens of churches nestled beneath the ruins of the Venetian castle, and two convents and a monastery clinging to hills above the bay, Skopelos is sure to delight visitors. 

Day 7 Poros

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
It's barely a hop, skip and a jump from the Argolid Peninsula to the island of Poros, sometimes called Kaválria. Greece's naval academy is here, and visitors can hear the cadets' marching band every morning. The views from the Temple of Poseidon are eternal, which may be why the doomed orator Demosthenes chose to end his life here. Take a water taxi to Galatas for excursions to the fragrant lemon groves of Lemonodhássos, or venture inland to ancient Troezen or Epidauros.

Day 8 Piraeus, Athens

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Walking in the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle arguing about who was the greatest philosopher. Ancient Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, is a city for all eternity. Explore ruins and discover the echoes of the ancients in the modern city Athens has become. 

Day 9 At sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Star Flyer offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship. Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges and a peaceful library.

Day 10 Rhodes

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The beautiful island of Rhodes (Island of Roses) has a rich and varied history. The beach at Lindos is among the best on the island, whose capital, Rhodes Town, is a bustling mecca for both sightseers and shoppers alike.

Day 11 Bodrum

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Known in ancient times as Halicarnassus, this was the birthplace of Heredotus and the site of King Mausolu's Tomb (4th century BC), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Today Bodrum is a charming gateway to seaside resorts. 

Day 12 Dalyan River

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
At first glance, this is a picture one hardly expects to see in Turkey: a lovely, unspoiled lake teeming with fish, a lush marshy delta, verdant farmlands, a lazy, reed-fringed river meandering into the sea. Onshore, you can see ruins of the Lycian city of Caunos, with its basilica and fortifications looming over the green marsh where endangered Caretta loggerhead turtles hatch in the spring. 

Day 13 Santorini

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The island of Santorini is perhaps the most breathtaking of all the Greek Islands. Around 1500 BC, a volcanic eruption destroyed the center of the island, leaving a crescent-shaped rim of cliffs around a harbor formed in the volcano's caldera. Today the island is known for its gleaming white architecture and spectacular views over the sea. 

Day 14 Hydra

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Hydra is a town of stately mansions all built around 1800 by blockade runners who had made fortunes outwitting the British during the Napoleonic Wars. As there are no cars, for the spectacular view from the Monastery of Ilias you'll have to ride a donkey to the top.

Day 15 Athens | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Walking in the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle arguing about who was the greatest philosopher. Ancient Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, is a city for all eternity. Explore ruins and discover the echoes of the ancients in the modern city Athens has become.
