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 Discovery, 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 – The Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, once dominated the harbour. Tour the magnificent old town, a labyrinth of cobbled streets that will transport you back to the Byzantine Empire and don’t miss the Knights’ Quarter and the Palace of the Grand Master. Rhodes is also known as the Island of the Knights. We have a full day here, so take advantage of the time you have to discover the crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches and lush green valleys. Join our free excursion and visit the Acropolis of Lindos and then take a stroll through the old town of Rhodes.

Day 4: Crete (Heraklion)/Santorini – Welcome to Crete, the largest island in Greece, a place of mystery, myths and legends. Visit the cosmopolitan capital, Heraklion, and some of Crete’s outstanding archaeological and historical sites. You can also learn more about the art and creativity of the Minoans. Don’t miss the free visit to the Palace of Knossos, the ancient cradle of the oldest European civilisation and the place where the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur took place. Our 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.
