The Aegean Experience I
This is Greek Island cruising at its best, beginning with a two-night hotel stay in Athens, giving you time to experience the capital’s many wonders, including the world-famous Acropolis, site of the Parthenon.
Take a sightseeing drive to the monastery of Osios Loukas and Delphi on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, home of the ancient Oracle of Apollo. Then explore one of the greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilization, Mycenae.
The Greek amphitheatre of Epidaurus has acoustics so perfect it is said you can hear a pin drop from the highest tier, while Corinth was once one of the largest and most important cities of the ancient world.
See the Minoan site of Akrotiri that was wonderfully well-preserved beneath volcanic ash, and in Crete learn more about another legendary destination, the Minotaur’s Labyrinth, hidden beneath the Palace of Knossos.
In Rhodes, visit the Acropolis of Lindos, then step ashore on the sacred island of Delos, birthplace of Achilles, before relaxing on the waterfront in beautiful Mykonos.
