Athens & The Greek Islands Cruise

Example Itinerary

10 days

Ancient cities, spectacular coastlines, and a 4-day, 4-night Greek Islands cruise through the dazzling Aegean Sea – this could be the story of your tour.

From the land to the waters, you’ll get the best of both Greek worlds on this 10-day tour. Take to the emerald waters of the Aegean Sea on a 4-day, 4-night Greek Island cruise. Marvel as those iconic Greek postcard scenes come to life; swaying windmills, dramatic cliffs, and whitewashed houses. Then spend 2 nights on the largest of the Cyclades – Naxos Island before returning to mainland Greece. Soak up the energy and atmosphere that is both present and past Athens. Linger in open-air restaurants and wander markets, scenes which are all framed by the magnificent Acropolis that reaches high into the sky.

Wrap all of these experiences up with a two-night stay in a high-end, 4-star Athens hotel to create an experience of a lifetime, and one that will leave you with memories that are simply priceless.
