7 Night Cruise "Jewels of the Cyclades" with Galileo

April to October
The M/S Galileo will be the vessel that will travel you around the Aegean Sea

If you are looking for a unique cruise that combines a pool of alternative destinations and popular islands, then you've come to the right place! Travel by motorsailor through Cyclades and visit lesser known locations like the sparsely habited Antiparos, the sister island of Paros, which you will also get to experience, and the uninhabited islands of Polyaigos and Delos. The former featuring magnificent landscape, while the latter is in its entirety an archaeological site, protected by UNESCO.

Alongside the famous cosmopolitan Mykonos, known for its vibrant nightlight and the volcanic Santorini, home to one of the world’s most gorgeous sunsets, you will get the chance to see Kythnos, Poros and Folegandros, islands far from crowds but beloved by local travelers for their tranquil allure.

You will also find yourselves in the capital of Cyclades, Ermoupoli in Syros. A beautiful island combining the Hellenic and Latin cultures, with Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches standing next to each other in harmony.

This summer, take a cruise like no other and visit the Jewels of Cyclades!
