This grand voyage across the Mediterranean begins with a four-day tour of Classical Greece, featuring hotel stays in Delphi and Nauplia, before cruising through what has been known historically as the Middle Sea.
A two-night hotel stay in Athens includes the Acropolis, site of the Parthenon. Then take a sightseeing drive to the monastery of Osios Loukas, followed by one of the greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilisation, Mycenae.
See the Greek amphitheatre of Epidaurus and Corinth, one of the largest cities of the ancient world. Explore the Minoan site of Akrotiri and the Minotaur’s Labyrinth of Knossos. In Alexandria, explore the Pompey's Pillar, Egyptian Museum of Antiquities and the famous Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Whilst in Rhodes, visit the Acropolis of Lindos.
Explore Chania’s Old Town and in Santorini, stroll along the cobblestone streets of Oia to see the houses carved into the cliffs. Then sail into one of the most spectacular harbours in the Mediterranean, the Maltese capital of Valletta.
Explore Sicily’s Greek and Roman ruins, the Palatine Chapel and the Cathedral in Palermo. Visit the ancient Doric temple of Segesta or the exquisite hill-top town of Erice, then disembark in Malaga for an optional two-night hotel stay in Madrid.
Please note some passengers will visit Delphi and Nauplia in reverse order due to the size of the hotels.
