The beauty of the Greek islands really is second to none. The glistening blue waters of the Aegean lap against the shore, as your worries just fade away. The mythical history of Greece adds a magical aspect to your 11-day Aegean Odyssey.
Arriving in Athens, you will benefit from the knowledge of an experienced guide as you take a walking tour of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. With free time available to you, you can soak up the atmosphere, shop for souvenirs and enjoy a cheeky glass of ouzo before enjoying some delicious Greek cuisine.
From Athens it’s all aboard your ship for a relaxing cruise along the Bosphorus to Turkey and the delights of Istanbul. Spend some time at your leisure in bustling Istanbul before you head to Izmir for you excursion to Ephesus. Home to the Temple of Artemis and the House of the Virgin Mary, where she is believed to have spent her last days, Ephesus has plenty of history to enjoy.
Leaving the mainland behind, the Greek Islands of Patmos, Mykonos, Rhodes, Crete and Santorini all await your discovery. You will have plenty of time to relax on the beaches, enjoy lunch in a traditional Greek tavern or take one of the optional excursions on offer.
