Classical Greece Cruise

An exciting voyage of discovery, unravelling the wonders of Classical Greece.
9 nights package holidays or 7 nights cruise.

Don’t miss…

  • The mystical island of Delos
  • Mykonos and its hedonistic delights
  • Volcanic Santorini and Akrotiri
  • The Minoan  Palace of Knossos on Crete
  • Kythira – old school Greece
  • Medieval Napflion
  • The artists paradise of Hydra

A classic in two senses, this itinerary combines some classic historic sites with some classic island hopping – the only way to see the Aegean. It’s the perfect combination of awesome antiquity and natural beauty. So, essentially, you can look at this as a holiday cruise with some super culture attached, or some terrific culture visited courtesy of 7 days on board a beautiful mega yacht. Welcome to small group cruising at its most easy-going with something for everyone!

You’ll see icons both ancient and modern. At one extreme you get to see the mythological birthplace of Apollo at Delos (remarkable ruins) and tune-in to the legendary Greek muses. At the other you can sit in a café on the harbour in Hydra, drink and ouzo and think about Leonard Cohen who composed ‘So Long Marianne’ tuning-up in a café on the self-same waterfront. If you’ve yet to cruise Greek waters it’s the perfect introduction.

Ports of call: Athens – Delos – Mykonos – Santorini - Rethymnon – Kythira – Monemvasia – Napflion – Hydra – Athens

Cruise and Stay - Emporikon Athens Hotel

Location is everything when it comes to exploring a foreign city and we have chosen the Emporikon Hotel as much for its central position as its creature comforts. In brief we’re talking four star comfort in a brilliant location. In detail it’s situated half way between the Acropolis and Omonia Square. As such you’ll find yourself within 500m stroll of all the famous places to go and see in Athens such as the Roman Agora, Syntagma and Hadrian’s Arch – and, of course, the Acropolis itself. It’s the perfect place to grab an early breakfast and you can get the hot-spots before the tourists and be first in the queue. As it is also well located for the little back streets where you can find the hidden bars and eateries the locals use, you can also be first for lunch. In the afternoon shop in the flea market as Monastraki and end the evening with dinner in one of many traditional taverna restaurants in the Plaka district. You’re guaranteed a big day and a short walk home.
