This luxurious package is a combination of unique travel destinations, each one adding a different flavor to the trip. You start with a visit to the historical city of Athens, where you can be strolling down the busy downtown streets filled with bars and restaurants and out of the blue see ancient ruins standing before you. A true ambassador of Mediterranean cuisine, Greek delicacies will add an unexpected culinary dimension to your journey. You will move on to the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos, renowned for its nightlife as much as it is for its imposing whitewashed houses built in the classic Cycladic style. From there you will embark upon a cruise that will take you to a cornucopia of destinations in Greece and Turkey.

From the oriental landscape of Kusadasi, one of Turkey's principle holiday resorts it's on to the unique mystical experience on the "The Jerusalem of the Aegean", the island of Patmos, famous for the Cave of the Apocalypse, where John wrote the book of Revelations. Afterwards you will make a short visit to the traditional island of Crete before stopping to the epitome of romance that is Santorini. The sunset from the top of the Imerovigli is a great way to end such a magnificent experience.
