This is Greek Island cruising at its best, beginning with 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.

Take a sightseeing drive to the monastery of Osios Loukas and Delphi on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, home of the ancient Oracle of Apollo. Then explore one of the greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilization, Mycenae.

The Greek amphitheater of Epidaurus has acoustics so perfect it is said you can hear a pin drop from the highest tier. See the Minoan site of Akrotiri that was wonderfully well-preserved beneath volcanic ash, and in Crete learn more about another legendary destination, the Minotaur’s Labyrinth, hidden beneath the Palace of Knossos.

In Rhodes, visit the Acropolis of Lindos, then step ashore on the sacred island of Delos, birthplace of Achilles, before relaxing on the waterfront in beautiful Mykonos.

    Never in the history of Christianity has a school of artists infused such a high degree of spirituality into its work. Byzantine theologians insisted that painters and mosaicists reflect the image of God. This morning's sightseeing reveals the splendour of Byzantine art in a tour that combines visits to both the Byzantine Museum, home to the world's largest collection of icons, and also the Monastery of Kaisariani with its fine frescoes and elegant gardens.

    Drive from the pier to Illissia Mansion, winter residence of the Duchess of Piacenza, and home to the Byzantine and Christian Museum. Founded in 1914, this renowned museum focuses exclusively on Byzantine art from the 4th to 19th centuries. In addition to its impressive icons, frescoes and tapestries, there are paintings, sculptures and illuminated manuscripts. Displays recreate Byzantine churches from the 5th to 11th centuries.

    Continue next to the slopes of Mt. Hymettos, for a visit to the Monastery of Kaisariani, a beautiful example of Byzantine architecture. Inside its high walls discover the 11th-century catholicon, or main church, built in a Greek cross shape. The dome is supported by four columns from an earlier Roman temple and colourful frescoes from the 14th to 18th centuries enliven the interior walls. There is also an 11th-century bathhouse. Later additions include a refectory, the monks’ cells and a 19th-century bell tower. Savour the views of Athens and the serenity of this delightful spot before returning to your hotel.

    Visit the sublime expression of Classical Greece, the Acropolis with its sweeping views of Athens. Commissioned by Pericles in the 5th century BC, the site is dominated by the majestic Parthenon: a building that embodies the stunning achievements of the Athenian “Golden Age”.

    Surrounding the great temple are the other architectural masterpieces of the citadel: the Propylaia (monumental gateway), the Erechtheion with its beautiful Karayatid Porch and the Temple of Athena Nike (Winged Victory).

    Below the temple complex is the theatre of Dionysos where the dramas of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides were first performed. Then explore another marvel: the longanticipated $200-million, 226,000-square-foot Acropolis Museum.

    In the dramatic Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis, ascending floors of glass literally “float” you above the excavations for an extraordinary perspective of the layers of Greek history that lie below.

    Founded at the end of the 19th century to house and protect antiquities from all over Greece, the National Archaeological Museum is one of the most important in the world devoted to ancient Greek art.

    During your visit you will be able to see Cycladic, Minoan, Mycenaean and Classical Greek art, and you'll also view sculptures from the Archaic and Hellenistic periods, along with pottery from the Geometric period. A few of the museum's most important exhibits include the bronze statue of Poseidon, the head of Hygeia (Goddess of Health), the bronze statue of the "Jockey-Boy" of Artemision, the golden mask of Agamemnon and the brilliant Minoan frescoes from the site on Thira (Santorini).

    Within the museum's walls more than 11,000 exhibits provide a panorama of Greek art from prehistory to late antiquity. Wander amid the royal tombs of Mycenae, dating from 1500BC. Marvel at sculpture from the 7th to 5th centuries BC, including the kouroi, nude male athletes, carved in Naxian marble. Admire a delicate bronze by Praxiteles and frescoes from Akrotiri, buried over 3,500 years ago in a volcanic eruption. Trace the evolution of Greek pottery from earliest times in collections including rare white clayware. This astonishing museum even includes Egyptian and Cypriot antiquities, as well as treasures from the sea. A shipwreck at Antikythera produced a scientific instrument used for astronomical calculations in the 1st century BC.

    Delphi was considered by the ancients to be the physical and spiritual center of the earth.  The shrine of Apollo, set nearly 2,000 feet up on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, exerts today a potent grip on the visitor. Here was the most respected oracle of antiquity.

    After breakfast, board your coach and drive to Delphi, on the way visit Osios Loukas Monastery. 

    Delphi was considered by the ancients to be the physical and spiritual center of the earth.  The shrine of Apollo, set nearly 2,000 feet up on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, exerts today a potent grip on the visitor. Here was the most respected oracle of antiquity.  Even the most intelligent individuals who lived during the brilliant civilization of Athens believed implicitly in the responses of the god. These were given by the inspired priestess Pythia and were interpreted, usually with an ambiguous touch, by the priests. 

    Delphi grew fabulously rich with offerings and though the ruins have almost disappeared now, you can admire them and try to picture the sanctuary as it was during its 1,000 years.  Zealous Christians initiated the destruction of this holy place and earthquakes added to its destruction. Your tour begins with a drive northwest via Thebes and Levadia, and you will be able to buy refreshments during a brief stop before reaching Delphi. 

    The site is breathtaking and the view from the top, down to the blue waters of the  Gulf of Corinth, is spectacular.  The drive will take you by the sacred Castalian spring and close to the ancient site of Apollo's sanctuary.  You will then walk the sacred way, visiting the treasuries, the place of offerings, the Grand Temple of Apollo and the theater, with its splendid acoustics.

    The tour continues with a visit to the Museum housing many treasures.  Omphalos, which marked the center of the world and the Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the fifth century B.C.are among the many wonders housed in the museum.

    Afterwards a short drive will take you to your hotel for overnight in this beautiful village, where dinner will be included.

    Tales of Agamemnon and the time of Homer’s heroes take center stage today on this visit to Mycenae, one of the greatest cities of the highly-developed Mycenaean civilization.

    In the morning take a coach and drive towards the Peloponnese, passing through the Rio-Antirrio bridge. Arrive in Mycenae and visit the great sites. Tales of Agamemnon and the time of Homer’s heroes take center stage today on this visit to Mycenae, one of the greatest cities of the highly-developed Mycenaean civilization. This culture dominated the eastern Mediterranean from the 16th to 13th century BC and laid the foundation for classical Greece.

    Enter Mycenae on foot through the Lion Gate, Europe’s oldest piece of monumental statuary: it was here that the victorious, but battle-weary Agamemnon, was greeted by his wife, Klytemnestra, on his return from the long war with Troy, only to be murdered by her lover. Inside the gates, explore the Royal Palace, view the shaft graves and relive the tragic stories at an archaeological briefing in the Treasury of Atreus (Tomb of Agamemnon).

    In the afternoon drive to Nafplio, the capital of Argolis area. The ancient part of the town is exciting and has its own unusual, authentic atmosphere. It has cobbled alleyways paved with stone and is lined with shops and many local taverns. With its old medieval neoclassic town, Nafplio is a dream to visit. We overnight at a hotel in this picturesque port, where dinner is included.

    In the 6th century BC, Epidaurus was sacred to the god of medicine, Asclepius. The medical facilities and healing treatments were immensely popular and the ensuing wealth was used to inaugurate a 4th-century BC building campaign.

    Today Epidaurus is a vast UNESCO World Heritage site with temples and hospital buildings that provide insight into the healing cults as well as the theatrical arts of the time. The jewel is the theatre designed by the architect Polycletus.

    Over 14,000 seats are carved into the hillside and the acoustics are so perfect that it is said you can hear a pin drop from the highest tier. The theatre, universally admired from the start, was extended in Roman times, restored in the 1950s and is still in use.

    Nowhere is it so easy to envision the staging of the great tragedies and comedies than in this pure masterpiece of Greek architecture.

    In prehistoric times, the people who inhabited Santorini (or Strongyle, meaning “round”, as it was known) enjoyed a relatively advanced standard of living, until 1650BC, when a volcanic eruption caused the centre of the island to sink, leaving a caldera with high cliffs that has remained one of the world’s most dramatic geological sights.

    In prehistoric times, the people who inhabited Santorini (or Strongyle, meaning “round”, as it was known) enjoyed a relatively advanced standard of living, until 1650BC, when a volcanic eruption caused the centre of the island to sink, leaving a caldera with high cliffs that has remained one of the world’s most dramatic geological sights.

    Nowhere is this ancient legacy more apparent than during a stroll through the beautiful village of Oia, on the northernmost tip of the island, where many of the clifftop dwellings were built into niches hewn from the steep volcanic rock face. These delightful buildings are painted a spectrum of pastel colours, reflecting the wealthy seafarers of the past who first developed the village. Walking around its narrow cobblestone streets you will come across shops offering handmade works of ceramic art, paintings and semi-precious jewellery, as well as coffee shops with spectacular views across the island and the sea.

    Santorini’s highest peak is crowned by an excellent example of Cycladic architecture, the 18th-century Monastery of Mount Profitis Ilias. The scenic drive then continues from Oia to the Argyros wine estate. Founded in 1903, this family run vineyard combines ancient traditions with modern technology to produce some of the most prestigious wines on the island. After enjoying some wine-tasting, a traditional Greek lunch will be served at a tavern overlooking the waterfront, in the village of Monolithos.

    Closed to the public for over six years, the newly reopened Minoan settlement of Akrotiri is the tour's highlight, but you also visit several of Santorini's picturesque villages. One of the Aegean's most important archaeological sites, Akrotiri was abandoned after severe earthquakes, then covered in pumice by a volcanic eruption in about 1625BC. A visit tells the tale of an affluent society who farmed, built two-story homes and indulged a taste for frescoes, furniture and jewellery. Today's tour includes a visit to the ongoing excavations, where you can walk amid the well-preserved streets, view the workshops and squares.

    Start your adventure with a transfer from the ship by local boat, then drive to the northern tip of the island to the village of Oia with its whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and coffee shops carved in the cliffs. Stroll along the cobblestone streets where wealthy sea captains built their mansions, now converted to cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Take in breathtaking views in all directions.

    Continue to the southern end of the island and the archaeological site of Akrotiri. The excavations, led by Professor Spyros Marintos, began in 1967. Walk around this amazing city and get an insight into the culture that laid the foundation for Greek civilisation. Then continue to tiny Pyrgos, once the capital. View the distant Venetian castle, then sit down to lunch at a local taverna. Conclude your adventure in Fira, the scenic capital. From here, you'll have the option of remaining in town or returning to the ship by cable car.

    Even without the tales of a bloodthirsty Minotaur, this magnificent palace complex with its flamboyant decoration, courts, audience chambers and residential areas is an impressive and inspiring site.

    Even without the tales of a bloodthirsty Minotaur, this magnificent palace complex with its flamboyant decoration, courts, audience chambers and residential areas is an impressive and inspiring site. Constructed around 1900BC, it was the administrative and religious centre of the Minoan kingdom. Here King Minos held court and – so mythology holds – his wife gave birth to a half-man, half-bull creature that lurked in the palace’s labyrinth. This fearsome beast was appeased only by human sacrifices.

    An earthquake destroyed the original complex; it was then rebuilt on an even grander scale, only to be destroyed again by the massive volcanic eruption on Santorini around 1500BC. Though periodically excavated by Greek archaeologists in the late 19th century, credit for the full excavation and restoration is given to amateur Victorian archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans. Roundly criticised for occasional missteps in restoration, Sir Arthur poured his fortune into the effort and did a remarkable job for the time period. Knossos today, at least, allows the visitor to visualise the palace as it once was and understand its intricacies.

    The guided tour will take you through this legend-rich, entrancing complex that sprawled across five acres, where everything from the throne room to royal living quarters is reconstructed with meticulous care.

    On our return to Heraklion, we will visit the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, one of the greatest museums in Greece and the best in the world for Minoan art, as it contains the most notable and complete collection of artifacts of the Minoan civilisation of Crete.

    Nestled at the base of this beloved Cretan landmark lies the traditional village of Archanes, which has been lovingly restored to become one of the most beautiful settlements on the island. The residents are extremely friendly and proud of the fact that their home was recently voted one of the best restored villages in Europe by the EU.

    Standing before the slopes of Mount Youchtas, on the island of Crete, you may be surprised to discover that this is the place where, in Greek myth, the mighty God Zeus was entombed. Viewed from a certain angle, however, and it soon forms into an eerily lifelike human profile – a fitting resting place for such a colossal figure of myth.

    The Archanes Archaeological Museum opened in 1993 and is housed inside a 19th-century neoclassical building that originally served as the village’s first school. This small but fascinating exhibition contains finds and replicas unearthed during excavations of a Minoan palace in the centre of Archanes, which was thought to have been the summer residence of an ancient King of Knossos, not far to the north.

    After visiting the museum there will be plenty of time for a guided walk through the village to admire its traditional buildings and churches. Archanes is famous for its hospitality, so you may like to enjoy some Greek specialties in the village tavern, before returning to Heraklion via the picturesque village of Vathipetro, which is renowned for its incredible natural beauty.

    Situated on the edge of the Aegean Sea, Karpathos has managed to remain remarkably unspoiled. This is a place of picturesque villages, where many historic traditions are still actively practised.

    Your tour begins in the old capital of Aperi, which grew in size during the Middle Ages, when coastal dwellers moved inland to avoid pirates. Situated on the edge of the Aegean Sea, Karpathos has managed to remain remarkably unspoiled. This is a place of picturesque villages, where many historic traditions are still actively practised. In 1894 Pigadia took over as the main town, but Aperi is still one of the largest villages on the island and has some charming buildings to see, including the ruins of a tower built in 3,000BC.

    Othos is the highest village in the Dodecanese and has some striking views looking out to sea. A highlight is the wonderful folklore museum, which has been carefully designed to replicate a traditional island dwelling. Many of the items on display here, from kitchen utensils to musical instruments, lace and clothing, are still in use on the island today.

    The village of Pyles has an open-air agricultural museum featuring a windmill, farmhouse and a wine press. There will also be a chance to relax in the lovely fishing village of Finiki, before arriving at the picturesque village of Arkassa to visit the Church of Agia Sophia, which is one of the oldest on the island.

    The final stop is another unique church, dramatically poised on the edge of a steep rock in the hillside village of Menetes. The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin is a hugely important site to the people of Karpathos, who flock here each year to celebrate the feast of the Assumption while surrounded by some stunning views of the island.

    Historically the people of northern Karpathos lived on the coast, in the ancient Doric city of Vrykounda, but after a series of raids by Saracen pirates in the 6th-century, around seventy families decided to move inland and build a fortified settlement on the slopes of the mountain. Until recently the only way to reach this remote village was through the nearby port of Diafani, so this tour has been specially designed to recapture that traditional journey, via a delightful coastal boat-ride from the main town of Pigadia, where Aegean Odyssey will be docked.

    The picturesque waterfront of Diafani is perfect for enjoying some refreshments at a local café, before you are transported back in time to Olympos, where many local women still wear brightly coloured traditional clothing and the pastel-coloured houses are like a living museum, in a way that is quite unique to the Mediterranean.

    The spectacular windmills lining the mountaintop are no longer functioning, but during your guided tour you will be able to see inside a traditional house and museum, watch a shoemaker at work and visit the Byzantine church, which is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin. Following the tour there will be plenty of time to enjoy some local hospitality at your leisure, before the boat-ride back to Pigadia.

    Gain inspiration from the exquisite natural setting of the Acropolis at Lindos, a destination of both historic and scenic interest, just an hour’s drive from Rhodes. This Doric town rose in power hundreds of years before Christ and continued to thrive into the middle ages.

At the summit is the Doric Temple of Lindian Athena, an archaeological jewel dating from the 4th century BC, with a double-winged portico and elaborate propylaea. The site offers sweeping views over St Paul’s Bay, where the Apostle is said to have sought shelter during a storm.

    Following the Acropolis, we’ll descend to the village with its whitewashed houses and tempting shops. A favourite resort since the time of Julius Caesar, Lindos is home to writers, artists and craftsmen.

    En route, you’ll visit the lookout Mount Smith, named after the British admiral Sir Sydney Smith who used this vantage point to scan the seas for French ships in the Napoleonic era. Then you enter the citadel of the Knight’s through the d’Amboise Gate and head for the restored Grand Master’s Palace.

    The first building of the 14th-century Crusaders, the Palace was modelled on the great Papal Palace of Avignon. It served as a fortress in times of war, a residence for the Grand Master of the Knights, a meeting place for senior knights, and, in later times, a summer residence of both Mussolini and Victor Emmanuel II of Italy. Stroll the cobblestone Street of the Knights and admire the honey-coloured stone buildings with their giant doorways and arched windows.

    Step into the 15th-century Knights Hospital, now an archaeological museum that counts the Aphrodite of Rhodes in flawless Parian marble among its treasures. At the conclusion of this tour, you can return to the ship or stay to wander this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Greek mythology has it that the island of Nisyros was once a part of Kos, until Poseidon threw a piece of the island at the giant Polybotes, trapping his foe and creating a volcano, beneath which Polybotes still shakes and groans.

    Greek mythology has it that the island of Nisyros was once a part of Kos, until Poseidon threw a piece of the island at the giant Polybotes, trapping his foe and creating a volcano, beneath which Polybotes still shakes and groans.

    Whatever the truth of its origins, Nisyros is certainly one of the biggest hydrothermal volcanoes in the world, but careful monitoring ensures there are no surprises. Over the last 150,000 years there have only been three significant eruptions, with the last occurring during the Middle Ages. Everything flourishes in the volcanic soil and there are some unique species of flora and fauna to see during a scenic drive across the island.

    The largest of the island’s volcanic craters is Stefanos, which is believed to be over 3,000 years old. Descending into this otherworldly landscape, as steam rises from bubbling fumaroles and the smell of sulphur fills the air, it’s easy to feel as though you’ve just stepped into a Jules Verne novel. Looking up, you will also be able to spot the small village of Nikia, which is perched right on the lip of the caldera.

    This picturesque settlement has a population of less than one hundred and is among the most authentic villages in Greece. The houses are brightly painted, the church dates back to the 15th-century and the main square features a memorable pebble-stone mosaic (or “choklakia”) designed by the 19th-century artist Paschalis Pashalakis. After exploring the village and enjoying some wonderful views in all directions, a stop will be made at an abandoned natural spa, for another one of a kind experience, before your return to Aegean Odyssey.

    Sacred Delos

    12 Oct Delos, Greece
    Half Day Tender Archaeological SiteGravel Flooring
    Discover the tiny, deserted isle of Delos, the religious centre of the Cyclades, where columns lie glistening in the sun, and the Lions of Delos guard the Sacred Way. As the reputed birthplace of the god Apollo, Delos was once a principal religious and commercial centre of the Eastern Mediterranean.

    Discover the tiny, deserted isle of Delos, the religious centre of the Cyclades, where columns lie glistening in the sun, and the Lions of Delos guard the Sacred Way. As the reputed birthplace of the god Apollo, Delos was once a principal religious and commercial centre of the Eastern Mediterranean.

    Pilgrims, traders, politicians and warriors alike came from all over the Mediterranean to this sanctuary. In fact, the “Cyclades,” the name of this island group, means “those islands around Delos.” In the 5th century BC, the Delphic Oracle decreed the island was to be purged of all the dead and that no person could either die or give birth on Delos to preserve the isle’s sanctity. Some of the richest archaeological treasure troves in Greece await as you leave the Sacred Harbour on your guided walking tour. Imagine the merchants in the Agora and the pilgrims entering the Sanctuary of Apollo.

    Walk along the spectacular Avenue of the Lions. Pay homage to the guardians of the Sacred Lake where Leto gave birth to the twin gods, Artemis and Apollo. And above all, savour the almost-mystical silence that pervades this haunting site of antiquity.

    Group Captain Mike Clegg BA(Hons) RAF (Ret’d), RAF Retired and The Art Society Accredited Speaker
    Group Captain Mike Clegg served for 39 years in the Royal Air Force, firstly as a professional submarine hunter, finally as a political adviser to the Commander Allied Air Forces Southern Europe on contentious issues (of which there were many) concerning Greece and Turkey.

    Group Captain Mike Clegg served for 39 years in the Royal Air Force, firstly as a professional submarine hunter, finally as a political adviser to the Commander Allied Air Forces Southern Europe on contentious issues (of which there were many) concerning Greece and Turkey.

    His interest in archaeology was stimulated by membership of an expedition to survey the Roman harbour of Sabratha in Libya (in the days before Colonel Gaddafi!). Later, while based in Malta, he was able to visit many of the famous archaeological sites in the Mediterranean, helped by the fact that his aircraft - the Shackleton – was none too reliable and various technical malfunctions led to emergency landings the length and breadth of the Med. These enforced stops, as well as scheduled exercises in Greece and Turkey, gave opportunities to visit such fascinating places as Pompeii, the Acropolis of Athens, the Palace of Knossos on Crete, Ephesus in Turkey, and Kourion in Cyprus. These experiences led to an abiding interest in the ancient world.

    Later in his career, based in Naples for the first of two tours as a NATO officer, Mike became a founder member of the International Archaeological Society and was involved in lecturing, leading tours of the major sites of southern Italy and Sicily, and excavating Roman and pre-Roman sites.

    On returning to the UK he undertook a two-year part-time archaeology course at the University of Oxford, which resulted in the award of the University’s Advanced Certificate in British Archaeology. Mike then studied with the Open University and completed several archaeology-based courses before returning to Naples where he continued his degree studies with courses on Renaissance Art (where better to study this subject than Italy?) On completion, Mike was awarded a First Class Honours Degree and a Diploma in Classical Studies.


    While still in the Royal Air Force Mike started to plan and lead ancient history tours for a company run by an ex-army colleague from National Defence College days. Since retiring from the RAF in 1998 he has continued to do this, working freelance for a number of travel companies and adding Greece and Cyprus to his list of destinations. Mike also continued his association with the RAF as an instructor on one of its volunteer squadrons tasked with teaching young cadets to fly, finally retiring in 2014 when all RAF gliders were grounded.

    He has written articles for archaeological and travel magazines as well as publishing a children’s book. He is currently completing a sequel to this and is working on one covering his experiences as a NATO officer in Italy during the Cold War.

    MV AEGEAN ODYSSEY

    There is a particular pleasure that comes with cruising aboard a smaller ship. Hosting an average of just 350 passengers, Aegean Odyssey is no ‘floating city’. She is small enough to sail rivers and put into the more characterful ports inaccessible to the ‘mega-ships’, the service is more personal and you get plenty of time to interact with the onboard experts.

    Yet on the other hand, she is large enough to offer a superb selection of amenities, including two dining venues, several comfortable lounges and bars, a relaxing spa centre and well-stocked library. Cabins are spacious, modern and intelligently designed, and 39 cabins across a range of categories (including balcony) are set aside for solo travellers at low supplement.
