Smart Four

Duration: 8 days / 7 nights
Beautiful bay with turquoise waters encircling the white washed buildings, Mykonos island
Package rate in double room during low season From 1041

A package designed to add a different flavor to your trip with each destination you will visit. You start with a visit to the historical Athens, a modern city so intertwined with its ancient roots that you can be strolling down the busy downtown streets filled with bars and restaurants and out of the blue encounter ancient ruins standing before you! A true ambassador of Mediterranean cuisine, Greek delicacies will add an unexpected culinary dimension to your journey. You will then start your sea voyage around the Aegean in 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 4-day cruise that will take you to a multitude of destinations in Greece and Turkey.

In Kusadasi, one of Turkey's principle holiday resorts, you will experience a fusion of the Hellenic world with the Orient before you move 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 St John wrote the book of Revelations. The following day a short visit to Crete and the Minoan Palace of Knossos is in order, before stopping to the very definition of romance that is Santorini. Watch the famous Santorinian sunset from the top of the Imerovigli as the sky turns gold and the Aegean illuminates. Is there a better way to end such a magnificent experience?

    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Thursday – Explore Mykonos
    The entire day is at your disposal to explore the island in your own way. There is an exciting array of activities to showcase the Island of the Winds, with the best one being a private tour around the most prominent places to see, like the Armenistis Lighthouse and the incredible beaches of Elia, Kalafatis and Kalo Livadi. Another popular option is to take a boat tour to 2 nearby uninhabited islands, Rinia & Delos; with the latter being a designated archaeological site.

  • Friday – Embark on Cruise
    The morning is at your leisure, perhaps for some last minute shopping or just to enjoy strolling through the picturesque town of Chora.

In the afternoon you have a transfer to Mykonos port, in order to embark on the cruise ship and start a wonderful cruise on the Aegean Sea.

  • Saturday – Kusadasi & Patmos
    Morning arrival at the Turkish port of Kusadasi, where you will have the chance to take a shore excursion (KUS02) to what was once considered the most important trading centre in the Mediterranean Sea; the Ancient City of Ephesus. The ruins of the city have been exquisitely preserved throughout history, even if Ephesus has been conquered many times since its glorious past. The second stop for the day will be Patmos, an island of the Dodecanese, with fame disproportionate to its small size. Patmos has been a Christian pilgrimage site and beacon of spirituality for centuries, as it is there that St. John the Theologian is said to have written the Book of Revelations. As a result, most of sites to see in Patmos are connected to the Biblical Apocalypse, with the Monastery & Grotto of St. John and the Cave of the Apocalypse (optional excursion) being some of the most prominent.
    Overnight: On board
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
     
  • Sunday – Crete (Heraklion) & Santorini

The area of Knossos has been inhabited since the Neolithic era (around 7,000 BCE), with the Minoan Palace built gradually between 1700 and 1400 BCE. You will bid adieu to Crete at noon and continue your trip to the world renowned island of Santorini (optional excursion). The gorgeous view of the caldera makes Santorini one of the most romantic places in the world, so if you decide to explore the island, make sure to have a glass of locally produced wine in your hands as the golden sun dips in the Aegean Sea in a marvellous hue of splendour.
    Overnight: On board
