Day 1 Embark in Athens(Piraeus), Greece

Your luxurious super yacht, Emerald Azzurra, awaits you in Athens where you’ll embark on your adventure around the Ionian Sea.

The birthplace of western civilization, the Greek capital is steeped in history. Its magnificent Acropolis towers over the city, while the Parthenon and ancient Agora tell tales of a time when gods and goddesses called Athens home.

Witness the impressive engineering feat of the Corinth Canal, a key navigational route for over 2,000 years, as you sail towards Itea. Surrounded by rolling hills covered in olive trees, this waterfront town is also close to the archaeological site of Delphi.

Day 3 Fiskardo (Cephalonia)

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Fiskardo is your gateway to the magical island of Cephalonia. The largest of the Ionian Sea islands, you’ll be struck by the unique biodiversity of its landscape, from to perfect turquoise lagoons to golden beaches, stretching on for miles.

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.
