There is no theatre or music group touring the world that does not wish to perform in this city. Wonder in the picturesque alleys and squares of Plaka and Monastiraki. Those will inspire you with their old charm. The tomb of the Unknown Soldier with its traditional “evzones” and the National Gardens, beyond which lies the Panathenaic Stadium, which hosted the first modern Olympics of 1896, are also locations of high importance.

During your Iconic Aegean cruise, you will get a kind taste of various Greek islands and Turkey. Your first destination, cosmopolitan Mykonos will be reached within a few hours after your departure from Piraeus port. At the island of the breeze, as it is called, you can wonder around the little alleys of Chora, the Little Venice” and enjoy an evening meal close to the old windmills. The next morning you wake up in Kusadasi, a little seaside town in Turkey. From there you can easily reach ancient Ephesus and the Terrace Houses, while joining an excursion on board. In the evening, you can enjoy the sunset with a traditional dinner in Patmos or the St. John’s Monastery – Grotto of Apocalypse.

Early in the morning you arrive in the port of Heraklion, Crete. The lively capital of the largest Greek island. The rich culture and the warm residents, will welcome you to the birthplace of the first civilization in Europe, the Minoans. The highlight during this day is the Minoan Palace of Knossos, just a short drive from the dock side. Heraklion is also gifted with some wonderful edifices, such as the “Koules” fortress, the Morosini Fountain, the Basilica of Saint Mark, the Historical Museum of Crete all on walking distance from the port.
