A dedicated Greek cruise, beginning with a two-night hotel stay in Athens where you will see the capital’s many wonders, including the world-famous Acropolis and Parthenon, then enjoy a sightseeing drive to the monastery of Osios Loukas and Delphi on the slopes of Mount Parnassus.

At Corinth, explore one of the largest and most important cities of the ancient world, including the Temple of Apollo. On the island of Tinos, the shrine to Our Lady of Tinos is a major landmark, as are the spectacular 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, sowing the seeds of Christianity.

Experience some classic Greek island-hopping 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.
