Total length of cruise: 7 - nights

Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Athens has quite a reputation to live up to. Named for Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, the city is credited with being the cradle of European civilization and birthplace of democracy. Ruins and relics of its glory days are scattered throughout the modern city, popping up where you least expect them. Its crowning glory is the Acropolis, perched atop a hillside, and covered in carved and columned temples of varying degrees of antiquity.
Not quite so old is the Plaka, an appealing neighborhood for a stroll down cobblestone streets, past old mansions and a plethora of outdoor tavernas ideal for watching the world go by, while munching tasty Greek snacks.

Kavala (Philippi), Greece
Clinging to the foothills of Mt. Symvolo, the city of Kavala rises like an amphitheater out of the sea. Known as the “heart of Eastern Macedonia”, with historical monuments and buildings almost too plentiful to list, there is no shortage of deep history in this vital port.
Perched atop the town, the Castle of Kavala sits like the crown jewel, with traces of Byzantine, Venetian, and Turkish influence. Don’t miss the impressive 60 arches of Kamares, the old medieval aqueduct, built to bring water from the mountains to the Old Town of Panagia. Take in the classic Islamic architecture of Imaret, built by the founder of the last Egyptian dynasty, Mehmet Ali, and now home to a luxury boutique hotel. Get up close to the city’s character on its many cobblestone streets, buzzing cafés, fine beaches, and views of the crystal blue waters of the Aegean.

Dikili (Pergamum), Turkey
The popular summer resort town of Dikili, tucked away on the Northwest side of Turkey’s Aegean region, is relatively untouched by tourism, but with its historic and natural charms, it may not be able to hold on to its quiet reputation for long.
Dikili’s picturesque coastal area dates back 5000 BC, and it’s easy to see the remnants of ancient times. Choose from therapeutic hot springs and thermal mud baths, or surround yourself with the rich and diverse history of the ruins of Atarneus, the stunning Acropolis theatre at the city of Pergamon, or the wooden Merkez Mosque, built in 1789 and without the use of nails.
Explore the dormant volcanic crater Lake Kargol, the Nebiler waterfall and caves, and the Denizkoy and Bademli beaches, or sit in the shadow of the hillside at one of the many harborside restaurants for seafood, Turkish specialties, and beautiful landscapes.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Kusadasi is your port of access to an age-old civilization. Ephesus was once the second largest metropolitan area in the Roman Empire, eclipsed only by Rome herself. Explore this city of construction both monumental and mundane. It was famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the wonders of the ancient world; the Library of Celsus, with its thousands of scrolls; and its amphitheater, with a capacity of 24,000 spectators. But you can also imagine yourself in the sandals of a resident as you stroll the streets, past marketplaces, and into bath complexes that offered piped-in hot water, massage, and sauna.

Patmos, Greece
There is no missing the Monastery of St. John, a massive dark fortress atop a hill, standing out against the traditional white houses of the village of Hora that surround it. It was constructed in the late 11th century to honor St. John the Divine, who is said to have had his apocalyptic vision while in Patmos, leading him to write the Book of Revelation.
The monastery is a warren of interconnecting courtyards, arcades, galleries, and roof terraces. There are lovely chapels, some with 12th century frescoes; the treasury exhibits an impressive array of art; and the library contains a wealth of historic texts. Designated as “The Holy Island” by the Greek Parliament in 1981, Patmos is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Rhodes (Lindos), Greece
Sailing into this port two millennia ago, you would have been stunned by the guardian 100-foot Colossus of Rhodes. Then as now the sun would likely have been shining, as Rhodes is said to have more fine days than anywhere else in Europe.
Today diverse historical influences are evident in an old town remarkably intact—in particular the medieval presence of the Knights of St. John, who occupied the island as a bastion of Christendom against the Turks. They left behind a turreted gateway citadel, and a fortified palace complete with crenellated walls, moat, and drawbridges.

Santorini, Greece
Your daydream of a Greek island meets reality in Santorini—its whitewashed villages cling to cliff sides, and bright blue roofs reflect the sea and sky. So beautiful is it, that you can almost believe the myths that claim it as the birthplace of gods.
Born itself as a volcanic cone, the island blew its top in 1450 BC, its center sank, and it assumed its current crescent shape, outlined by three main islands. The capital, Fira, a pedestrian haven with narrow, meandering cobblestone lanes, is reachable only by cable car, donkey, or for the fit and fearless, a flight of 600 steps.
