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 Rethymnon | Crete

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

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 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 6 Agia Anna | Naxos | Cylades

  • 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 kilometres (miles) away, once protected the city from attackers. Nowadays it offers you a stunning view over the whole island in all its glory. Even the gods loved the island. The German opera "Ariadne auf Naxos" was based on the myth of Dionysus and the Cretan king's daughter.

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) | Disembark

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

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
