Iconic is the perfect description for this very special odyssey, one that will leave you mesmerised and overwhelmed by the history, the myths and the legends. Two sites of the Wonders of the Ancient World feature in our explorations. Discover the beautiful Island of the Winds and its windmills and appreciate the art and creativity of ancient civilisations like the Minoans.

Day 1: Lavrion (Athens)/Mykonos – Aboard the Celestyal Olympia, we leave Athens and head for beautiful Mykonos in the Cyclades. The island, according to Greek mythology, was formed by the bodies of giants slain by Hercules. The most recognisable site on Mykonos is the row of immaculate picture postcard white windmills overlooking the water. Every visitor takes that picture. The Old Town has many delightful cafes and tavernas along its winding alleys and time will pass very quickly in these lovely, relaxing surroundings.

Day 2: Kusadasi/Patmos – Vibrant and colourful, Kusadasi in Turkey is the gateway to the Hellenistic ruins of Ephesus, famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. You can explore Ephesus on our complimentary tour. Our next port of call is Patmos, a small and charming island a little over 20 square kilometres in size and lying in the Dodecanese. Biblical legend has it as the supposed location of the vision to John the Baptist in the Book of Revelations and where it was written.

Day 3: Rhodes – His remains are nowhere to be seen of course but the Colossus of Rhodes once bestrode the harbour which gives us another link to the Seven Wonders. Lose yourself in the maze of atmospheric cobbled streets of the Old Town (a World Heritage Site) in that will transport you back to the Byzantine Empire and be sure to wander through the Knights Quarter and the Palace of the Grand Master. Indeed Rhodes is also known as the Island of the Knights. Our itinerary allows us a whole day here which gives plenty of opportunity to discover the clear waters, wonderful beaches and lush wooded valleys. Our complimentary excursion will take you to Lindos, the Acropolis, then on to the Old Town of Rhodes for a walking tour.

Day 4: Crete (Heraklion)/Santorini – Welcome to Crete, Greece’s largest island, a place of mystery, myths and legends. There’s the chance to take in the bustling city of Heraklion and some of Crete’s extraordinary archaeology and history. You can also learn more of the art and creativity of the Minoans. We have included a complimentary visit to the Palace of Knossos, once the home of Europe’s oldest civilisation and the setting for the legend of Greek hero Theseus and the MinotaurOur odyssey continues as we spend an evening in Santorini, whose stunning face is instantly recognisable across the world. Where you may get the chance to see the blue domed church at Oia. There will also be time for a wonderful, traditional meal at one of the many cliffside restaurants.

Day 5: Lavrion (Athens) – We return to the capital in the morning after an exciting journey of discovery.
