Day 1: Piraeus , Greece | Embark

Athens remains iconic with its blend of ancient pathways and modern streets leading to the famous Acropolis and other archaeological sites. It’s a city rich in history and mythology, yet full of life today.

Wandering through its back alleys, you'll encounter vibrant street art and be serenaded by street musicians. Every turn feels like an adventure. You might stumble upon the Church of Agioi, a quieter historical spot near the Holy Apostles Ancient Agora, away from the crowds.

Visit the Plaka or Monastiraki flea markets to haggle with local vendors and find handmade items and quirky souvenirs for a laugh.

Also, explore the port of Piraeus, Greece's largest port and a key Mediterranean hub. This seaside town, with its centuries-old history, has evolved from a wartime fortress into a major shipping and transportation center.

Day 2: Nafplion , Greece

In the Saronic Gulf lies the town of Nafplion (Mycenae/Epidaurus), Greece. Its narrow stone streets, whitewashed houses, and quaint local shops create a picturesque, postcard-like scene. Climb the steps to Palamidi Castle, perched on a cliff above the town, for a thrilling exploration. Nearby, visit the ancient ruins of King Agamemnon's castle in Mycenae, a key site of mainland Greece's late Bronze Age culture. In Epidaurus, explore the famous amphitheater, where you can stand at specific points at the bottom and hear a speaker from the top seats.

Day 3: Corinth Canal Transit | Itea, Greece

Standing at 70 feet wide at sea level, 81 feet wide at its top level, 300 feet tall and only about four miles long, the sheer limestone cliffs of the famous Corinth Canal can only be sailed by smaller ships and boats. The intimate size of our yachts allows us to freely navigate it for an adventurous expedition. Standing on deck as we make our way through the narrow passage, its awe-inspiring perspective will invoke a true sense of exploration.

Before heading into the legendary Delphi, you can dock in the charming coastal town of Itea. Feel free to explore Miami Beach (not to be confused with Florida’s), its prestigious Blue Flag beach. The expansive local fields of Amfissa olive trees create a lush, green landscape known as the “sea of olives.” The peak of Mount Parnassus in the distance adds to the sense of wonder in this picturesque scenery made for an impromptu photo shoot.

When you’re ready for some ruins, the Oracle at Delphi awaits. To explore the Sanctuary of Apollo and other ancient remnants, you must climb the slopes of the mountain on a path known as the Sacred Way. It is here you will gaze upon what’s called the navel of the world.

As you stand among the crumbling stones that make up the Athenian Treasury and ancient stadium, you cannot help but get swept back in time. There is a great sense of adventure that makes you feel like a certain iconic archaeologist as you step over stones the ancient Greeks once walked. Panoramic views behind the remaining structures create a richer picture of life before modern times. The surrounding environment creates a harmonious balance between nature and manmade marvels.

Delphi is a place where history and mythology become entangled, where one cannot exist without the other. Everything feels simpler. But that does not make it any less inspiring. It is a privilege to witness these ancient Greek ruins that have stood the test of time.

Day 4: Katakolon , Greece

Katakolon (Olympia) is a little seaside village on the western coast of Ilia and it’s exactly what you picture when you think what a Greek village should be. You can taste the day’s catch fresh from the fishermen’s nets at the gateway to Olympia. With a small population and plenty of shops and restaurants to peruse, it’s the perfect way for travelers to get an intimate look at Greek life.

The home of the first Olympic Games in 776 BCE, Olympia still holds wonder. As explorers wander onto the ruins the first thing that catches their eyes are the stone columns. Still standing where they were first lined up in ancient times, one cannot help but let their imagination run wild as they fantasize about running the first flame across the field.

Many are tempted to take their place in history when they catch sight of the pedestals where Olympic winners once stood to receive their spoils. But please, don’t stand on the victors’ columns. It will have to be enough to admire them or strike a triumphant pose next to one of the first-place pedestals.

Fun fact: This is where the saying, “Don’t rest on your laurels,” came to be. Victors of the Olympic Games earned a wreath made of aromatic bay laurels as a symbol of their triumph. But these long-past victories were never meant to help them hold their social status long-term.

Wander further into the ruins and find the remains of the Temple of Zeus. The platform is roped off for visitors, but just standing at its base is enough to inspire awe. Visitors can spend hours at the site and marvel at how all those constructs have managed to keep standing after all this time.

Day 5: Fiskardo , Greece

Amid the Ionian island of Kefalonia lies a small fishing village, Fiskardo, with all the charms of a tiny Greek town but the elegant feel of a luxurious getaway. As a popular choice for yachts to dock, the harbor hosts plenty of upscale seafood restaurants. Opt for a quick dip after a day of adventure at one of Fiskardo’s many pebble coves. For a more typical beach day, venture about 40 minutes out to the famous Myrtos Beach. If you’re seeking a day filled with activity, try diving, snorkeling or kayaking with the locals. Find great hiking at the Venetian Lighthouse, Cypress and Battery Trails.

Day 6: Corfu, Greece

In the north of the Ionian Sea lies Corfu, a Greek island with history and cultural influence from the French, Venetians and the English, all leading to its modern-day, cosmopolitan reputation. While most Greek Isles are associated with ancient ruins, Corfu offers a different historical lens with monuments like Achilleion Palace. It also holds a quainter side with surrounding villages to explore like the charming ghost town of Old Perithia in Kasiopi. It’s not a trip to Greece without visiting some of Corfu’s stunning beaches like Canal d’Amour or Paleokastritsa.

Day 7: Saranda , Albania

The horseshoe-shaped bay of Saranda (Butrint) on the Albanian Riviera lies between the Ionian Sea and rolling hills of olive groves. When visiting, the Butrint National Park should hold a spot on your bucket list. This UNESCO World Heritage Site and Ramsar Wetland Site of International Importance holds the remains of a city from the Roman Empire, a scenic lagoon, and breathtaking mountains. Surrounded by beaches and a promenade, Saranda is a quintessential Mediterranean destination when you’re looking for a simple yet elegant experience. Wander over to the secluded natural bay of Mirror Beach on the way to Ksamil village.

 

Day 8: Kotor, Montenegro

Along the Adriatic coast of Montenegro lies the fortified town of Kotor, known for its medieval old town with winding streets and historic squares, as well as its many Romanesque churches and Maritime Museum. For unbelievable views of the Bay of Kotor, hike to the top of San Giovanni Fortress. Stroll through the many vendors, taking in the sounds, scents and colors as they call out their daily specials, produce and homemade goods. Swim the stunning azure waters of the bay with a boat tour to the Blue Cave.

Day 9: Dubrovnik, Croatia (Overnight)

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Along the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia lies Dubrovnik, a city well-known for its 16th-century Old Town. Filled with enchanting historic sites and containing a sense of stories past, the Croatian city has rightly earned its place among the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Delve into the fantastical side of the city as you tour the streets that have become part of cinematic history. Take a break from the historic for a relaxing beach day with a quick ferry ride to the nearby Lokrum Island. Delve deep into the local culture with wine and delectable platters of meat and cheese.
