DAY 1 – Arrive in Athens, Greece

Geia sas and welcome to Greece! This evening at 6 p.m. you will meet with your fellow travelers and host for a welcoming drink.

DAY 2 – Athens

Explore ancient Athens beginning with the Parthenon that rests atop the Acropolis “The sacred rock, the high city”. Named for the statue Athena Parthenos, or “Athena the Virgin,” it reflects Athenian wealth and power of its time. Next your local guide will show you the Erechtheum, well-known for its distinctive caryatid maidens that support the porch for all to see. Continue to Theseum, the best preserved ancient Greek temple, named for the sculptures displaying the adventurous hero Theseus. You will also see the open air theater of Dionysus and the Agora “gathering place,” known as the birthplace of democracy. Socrates himself once taught there. In the evening enjoy a Greek dinner and ask your host about local entertainment.

DAY 3 – Athens, Piraeus (Embarkation) Mykonos

Today you will set sail at 11 a.m. from Piraeus across the ancient Aegean Sea for the mountainous island of Mykonos.

Before returning to your ship, you will also observe impressive windmills on your journey that are characteristic of this island oasis.

DAY 4 – Cruising: Kusadasi, Turkey

Discover the Turkish port of Kusadasi , which boaters say resembles a bird’s head from sea.

The ruins and remnants of the different time periods are a popular attraction.

DAY 5 – Cruising: Heraklion and Santorini
