The Light of Greece

Istanbul to Athens

For mouthwatering natural beauty and outstanding archaeological sites, there are few journeys in the world that can compare with this cruise to Greece, its islands and the coast of Turkey. The clear waters of the Aegean and the drama of the landscape have inspired writers, poets and artists since the time of Homer.

See the ancient monasteries of Mount Athos; explore the Byzantine architecture of Thessalonika; visit Delos, the birthplace of Achilles; enjoy the beautiful island of Crete and have the opportunity to stand on the stage of the Greek theater at Epidaurus. On the Turkish coast, you will visit some of the finest Hellenistic and Roman ruins to be found anywhere - Ephesus & Troy. And what could be more fitting as a grand finale than a tour of the Acropolis and other wonderful monuments of Athens.
