The first of our Greece only grand voyages, this quintessential journey into the classicism of the region begins with four nights on land, including a two-night hotel stay in Athens, giving you time to experience the capital’s many wonders, including the world-famous Acropolis, site of the Parthenon. Then take a sightseeing drive to the monastery of Osios Loukas and Delphi, before exploring one of the greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilisation, followed by the Greek amphitheatre of Epidaurus and Corinth.
Board Aegean Odyssey in Piraeus and head for the Minoan site of Akrotiri on Santorini and the Minotaur’s Labyrinth of Knossos. In Rhodes, visit the Acropolis of Lindos, then step ashore on sacred Delos, before relaxing in Mykonos. On the island of Tinos, the shrine to Our Lady of Tinos is a major landmark, as are the Byzantine Monasteries at Meteora, one of the most remarkable sights in the Mediterranean.
Mount Olympus, home of the gods, lies near Thessalonica, then cruise past Mount Athos to Philippi, where the apostle St Paul delivered his first sermon in Europe. Experience some Greece’s most beautiful islands, from historic Samothraki to picturesque Chios and Patmos, the “Jerusalem of the Aegean”, where Saint John is said to have written the Book of Revelation.
Please note some passengers will visit Delphi and Nauplia in reverse order due to the size of the hotels.
