Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 ARRIVE IN ATHENS, GREECE.
Welcome to Athens! At 6 pm, meet your Globus Host and traveling companions for a welcome drink.

Day 2 ATHENS.
Sightseeing with a Local Guide features a visit to the world-famous ACROPOLIS, perched high on a rocky outcrop overlooking the city. Here, see the Parthenon, the Erechtheum with its Porch of Maidens, the Temple of Athena Nike, and enjoy a panoramic view that includes glimpses of the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Theater of Dionysus, and the beautifully preserved Theseum, where Socrates taught. Later, a city orientation tour features the Old Parliament House and a picture stop at the Panathenaic Stadium. Built in the 2nd century AD, it is the only stadium in the world built entirely of marble, and was host to the opening and closing ceremonies of the first modern Olympics in 1896. The rest of the day is at leisure. How about a Greek dinner tonight? Your local host knows where to find local fare and entertainment reminiscent of Zorba the Greek. (B)

Day 3 ATHENS–LAVRION/PIRAEUS (EMBARKATION)–MYKONOS. 
This morning, head for Lavrion/Piraeus, where you will sail into the deep-blue waters of the Aegean Sea. Later, dock at the mountainous island of Mykonos with its characteristic windmills and dazzling white houses. Time to wander at whim through narrow paved streets before returning on board. (B,L,D)

Day 4 CRUISING: KUSADASI, TURKEY–PATMOS, GREECE.
Two ports of call today. First, Kusadasi on the Turkish coast. Visit the fascinating Greek, Roman, and Byzantine excavations of EPHESUS. Next, discover the tiny Greek island of PATMOS, where St. John the Divine wrote the Revelation. Also see the Grotto of the Apocalypse. (B,L,D)

Day 5 CRUISING: HERAKLION, CRETE–SANTORINI, GREECE.
First port of call today is Heraklion on Crete. A few miles away is KNOSSOS, the center of the 3000 BC Minoan civilization.

All This Included
Sunny beaches, beautiful islands, some of Europe’s oldest civilizations, fascinating archaeological treasures, and much more await you on this marvelous Greek cruise and guided tour of Greece.

Your tour starts and ends in Athens and includes guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide. Among the sights you will see, you’ll visit the Acropolis, located on a rocky promontory and dating to the 5th century BC. Then enjoy the highlight of your vacation, a 3-night cruise on the Aegean Sea cruising to some of the world’s most beautiful islands. Visit Mykonos, Greece's most famous cosmopolitan island with its seafront village, sandy beaches, and whitewash houses.

Wander through the picturesque alleys and narrow streets; take photos of the windmills that overlook the embankment; relax at a waterfront café; and watch for the official mascot of Mykonos, a pelican. In Kusadasi, on the Turkish coast, enjoy the white-sand beaches and shopping in the covered bazaar, or perhaps join an optional excursion to ancient Ephesus, with its fascinating Greek, Roman, and Byzantine excavations.

You'll also cruise to Heraklion, Crete's capital nestled picturesquely between two mountain ranges with archaeological treasures and beautiful scenery, and Patmos, where St. John the Divine wrote the Revelation. In Santorini (weather permitting), still an active volcano offering one of the world's most breathtaking panoramas, you'll see bright white buildings and cliffs rising from the Aegean Sea—one of Greece’s most beautiful spots.

When not on an island, enjoy the ship's many amenities. Sunbathe, sip a cool drink, sit back, and relax. The Greek Islands are calling you, and now is your chance to experience their beauty and fascinating histories. Stunning scenery, ancient monuments, and the chance to immerse yourself in a beautiful guided tour of the Greek Islands…this Greece cruise and escorted Greek tour is sure to delight all of your senses!
