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 3: Patmos, Dodecanese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The idyllic little island of Patmos houses one of the most important monasteries of the Greek Orthodox church. The monastery of St John is a World Heritage Site, protected by UNESCO. It was built in honour of the Apostle John, who is said to have lived in a cave on the island. It is also said that he wrote down his Revelation of the Apocalypse there. The whole island is considered holy ground and is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the Greek Orthodox world.

Day 4: Astypalea | Dodecanese

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The name "Dodecanese"  refers to "The Twelve Islands",  in the southeastern Aegean Sea, comprising fifteen major islands (Agathonisi, Astypalaia, Chalki, Kalymnos, Karpathos, Kasos, Kastellorizo, Kos, Lipsi, Leros, Nisyros, Patmos, Rhodes, Symi, and Tilos) and 93 smaller islets.Since Antiquity, these islands formed part of the group known as the "Southern Sporades". 

Day 5: Amorgos, Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Explore the historic and mythical world of the early Greeks in this walled city full of remnants from the past.

Day 6: Agia Anna | Naxos

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Explore the clear waters and magnificent beach of this island. 

Day 7-8: Syros, Cyclades

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
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 9: Athens (Piraeus) | Disembark

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

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
