Begin with a two-night hotel stay in Athens, giving you time to experience the capital’s many wonders, including the Acropolis, site of the Parthenon, where a visit to the Acropolis Museum is featured.

Setting sail from the port of Piraeus, you’ll call at Santorini to see the Minoan site of Akrotiri and then Crete to view the Minotaur’s Labyrinth of Knossos. In Rhodes, visit the Acropolis of Lindos, then step ashore on the sacred island of Delos, before relaxing in Mykonos.

Corfu is an island of natural beauty, before the fjord of Kotor Bay leads to Dubrovnik, the best-preserved walled city in the Mediterranean. The Palace of Diocletian in Split is a Roman marvel and the Italian city of Trieste is an historic meeting place of Latin, Slavic and Germanic cultures. Finally, the “Floating City” of Venice holds a treasure-trove of unforgettable sights, including St Mark’s Square and Basilica.
