Athens - 4 Night Cruise 'Iconic Aegean' - Santorini SPECIAL OFFER!

Duration: 10 days / 9 nights
Package rate per person in a double room during low season 1209

An itinerary to suit every taste awaits you in this all-encompassing package! Visit Athens, a multitude of Greek islands, as well as the coast of Turkey in a cruise with diverse destination designed to help you experience all that Greece has to offer. Much like democracy, your journey begins in Athens. A modern European capital that uniquely combines contemporary luxury with an urban feel and an undeniable connection to the ancient world. From there you will embark on a 4 Night Cruise to the Greek islands and Turkey.

First stop on the cruise is Mykonos, an idyllic destination juxtaposing the serenity of the Cyclades with a nightlife akin to that of Ibiza. You then proceed to Kusadasi, one of Turkey's principle holiday resorts. Take advantage of the chance to see ancient Ephesus on an unforgettable excursion. Next up is Patmos. An island of special religious importance as it is the place where John wrote the Book of Revelations. Your journey through the ages continues in the medieval times, with Rhodes taking center stage. The multitude of civilizations that have passed through this gem in the edge of the Dodecanese, creates an amalgamation that is nowhere to be found throughout the globe. From the medieval times to the Venetian era in Heraklion. The largest city on the island of Crete gives you the opportunity to sample the local cuisine and revel in the famously welcoming Cretan hospitality. It may be hard to part with Crete, that's why the last stop on your journey is the ever-enticing Santorini, home to one of the world's most stunning sunsets. The inactive volcanic formation of the island is nowadays filled with water, creating the amazing caldera. The Red beach and the White beach are geological marvels and as if all of this wasn't enough, the Santorinian wine is simply divine. How can you say no to an experience like that?
