Day 1: Athens (Piraeus), Greece | Embark

Begin your journey in PIraeus, the port of Athens. This ancient city is considered the birthplace of Europe, of philosophy and of democracy, and is the embodiment of the Olympic ideal. World-famous and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, its landmark is the magnificent Parthenon temple, high on the Acropolis in all its glory. At the foot of the Acropolis hill is the Plaka, the oldest quarter of Athens, and the world's most modern archaeological museum, the new Acropolis Museum, has been here since 2009. Explore the city before boarding your ship. 

Day 2: Monemvasia | Peloponnese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The little town of Monemvasia is nestled closely against a rock that lies just off the coast. This impregnable fortress was an important trading centre in Byzantine times. Today it is a weekend retreat for wealthy Athenians. Behind its walls, discover the beautifully restored lower town, and meander through the tranquil narrow lanes. This picturesque little town on a rock transports you back in time to the romantic Middle Ages, when it was exceptionally modern and lively.

Day 3: Milos | Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The unique character of Milos' landscape was formed by volcanic activity. Hot springs, spectacular cliffs, and distinctive rock formations give the various beaches their own individual character. The colors of Milos are most obvious where the water meets the stone and forms the coastline. Minerals have colored the sand and stones and each rock along the coastline seems to glow in a different color. Plaka, the picturesque old capital with its typical dazzling-white houses, is overlooked by a mighty castle that offers a superb view over Adamos Bay and the surrounding islands.

Day 4: Astypalea | Dodecanese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Seen from above, Astypalea looks just like a butterfly that has landed on the blue Aegean waters. The little island jewel has kept its authentic charm to this day: Among innumerable beaches, the crystal clear water, bright white lanes and red windmill roofs, visitors become one with the relaxed Greek island routine.

Learn about the privileged history of the 12 islands in the Aegean Sea known as the Dodecanese Islands.
 

Day 5: Amorgos | Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The magic of the rock monastery - At 300 meters (984 ft) above the deep blue sea, the monks ae truly close to heaven. The white monastery of Panagia Hozovitissa is so tall and narrow, it almost seems to grow out of the steep cliffs. A labyrinth of corridors connect its eight floors; and every now and then, through a rock window, you catch a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea.

The Cyclades is an island group in the Aegean Sea which refers to the way these islands encircle the sacred island of Delos.

Day 6: Agia Anna | Naxos

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the south of Naxos lies the idyllic fishing village of Agia Anna, with its secluded tavernas and beach bars on the small promenade. On both sides, lovely bays and beaches entice you to swim in the crystal-clear water. The huge Venetian castle in the island's capital, only a few kilometers away, once protected the city from attackers. Today it offers a stunning view over the whole island in all its glory. 

Day 7: Syros | Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Although the capital of the Cyclades is situated on the tranquil and traditional island of Syros, outside of the town this seems the most remote island of them all. Ermoupoli, one of the most beautiful island towns in Greece, was built majestically on two hills. Its architecture is exceptional and the numerous monumental neo-classical buildings give the impression of a large, elegant town. Passing over the hill, the spaciousness and vastness transform into a maze of lanes and give a medieval impression.

Day 8: Athens (Piraeus), Greece | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Return to Piraeus. Disembark after breakfast to explore Athens, return home, or continue on your independent travels.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
