Day 1: Piraeus (Port of Athens) | 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: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 3: Nauplion | Peloponnese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The old town of Nauplion has a picturesque peninsula setting and three Venetian fortresses guard the pretty town. In ancient times, the excavation site of Mycenae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was one of the most important towns in Greece. Its legendary king, Agamemnon, has a large role in Homer's Iliad. The palace grounds were surrounded by a cyclopean stone wall. Now you can only gain entrance through the famous Lion Gate. In Epidaurus, also protected by UNESCO, the impressive 14,000-seat theatre is one of the most important buildings in this archaeological site.

Day 4: Monemvasia | Peloponnese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The little town of Monemvasia nestles 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 retreat for wealthy Athenians who spend their weekends here. Behind its walls you can discover the beautifully restored lower town, where you simply want to drift along 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 5: Rethymnon | Crete

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 6: 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 colours of Milos are most obvious where the water meets the stone and forms the coastline. Minerals have coloured the sand and stones and each rock along the coastline seems to glow in a different colour. Plaka, the picturesque old capital with its typical dazzling-white houses, is overlooked by a mighty castle which offers a superb view over Adamos Bay and the surrounding islands.

Day 7: Paros | Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 8: Athens (Piraeus) | Disembark

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

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
