It was once the largest city in the world, and echoes of this grandeur are still visible today. There are also knight's watchtowers, tiny chapels, and peaceful rocky beaches to explore.

Day 1 Piraeus (Port of Athens), Greece | Embark

Walking in the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle arguing about who was the greatest philosopher. Athens, the birthplace of democracy and epicenter of western civilization, is a city for all eternity. Explore this beautiful city and discover how its ancient history has influenced modern ways of life.

Day 2 Monemvasia, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
From the shore, it seems to be nothing more than a great rock protruding from the sea. Pass over the causeway and through an iron fortress gate, and suddenly the town of Monemvasia becomes accessible, a perfectly preserved Byzantine fortified port. Once 60,000 strong but now home to just a few hundred locals, ancient Byzantine ruins loom over the town, while a maze of red-tiled roofs and twisting alleys hide taverns and cafes. 

Day 3 Pilos, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Homer's “Wise King Nestor" was very wise indeed to build his magnificent palace near Pilos. The city's harbor of Navarino Bay and the land-locked lake that was the original harbor were a perfect refuge from storms – and invaders. And it was at this site on October 20, 1827, with the help of Britain, Russia, and France, that modern Greece attained independence, defeating the Turkish navy in the Battle of Navarino Bay.

Day 4 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Star Flyer offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship. Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges, and a peaceful library.

Day 5 Syracuse, Sicily - Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Syracuse is a city on the Ionian coast of Sicily known for its ancient ruins and Classical artifacts. It was once the largest city in the world, and echoes of this grandeur are still visible today. Visit Parco Archeologico della Neapolis, one of Sicily's greatest archaeological sites. Relax in one of the stylish little cafes that surround its beautiful baroque piazzas before wandering down medieval lanes toward the sparkling blue sea.

Day 6 Valletta, Malta | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Valletta is the tiny capital of the island nation of Malta. The walled city was established in the 16th century on a peninsula by the Knights of St. John, a Roman Catholic order. It has a rich historical past and is a European Art City and a World Heritage City. It has an abundance of museums, palaces, and grand churches to visit, but be sure not to miss out on exploring its beautiful gardens.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
