Aegean Legends 4-days 3-nights Cruise

Ports of Call

The Acropolis in Athens
  The cruise departs from and returns to:
Athens, Greece:

Capital of Greece, cradle of democracy, birthplace of Western Civilization - Athens is a vibrant city where the ancient and the modern co-exist. The majestic Acropolis with Parthenon rises above the city, its ancient glory still visible in the timeworn stone, and the National Archaeological Museum holds countless treasures from Athens' Golden Age.

Mykonos, Greece:
This cosmopolitan and picturesque island is well known for its graphic paved streets with hundreds of boutiques and Cycladic art shops. Beneath the sophisticated surface of Mykonos lies a quintessential Greek Island. Hundreds of tiny chapels dot the island and sheep graze in the shadow of white-washed windmills. Find a table on the waterfront and bask in the serenity of sunset over the picturesque harbor.

Ancient Ephessos in Kusadasi
  Kusadasi (Ephessos), Turkey:
A tour to nearby Ephessos should not be missed, for here history truly comes to life. Walking towards the ancient harbor, down a marble road rutted by the wheels of countless chariots, you pass architectural masterpieces like the Magnesian Gate and the Library of Celsus before arriving at the Great Amphitheater where St. Paul was arrested and cast out of the city.

Patmos, Greece:
This island is known as the site of the apocalyptic Revelations of St. John the Divine, written here during his exile from the Roman Empire. The cave where he lived is now the site of the Monastery of the Apocalypse. The Monastery of St. John, built on one of the island's highest points, houses priceless icons and manuscripts in its Treasury.

The magical Santorini island.
"Chosen by the Gods!"
  Santorini, Greece:
The island of Santorini is perhaps the most breathtaking and beautiful of all the Greek Islands - it is the ideal place for enjoying the most romantic sunsets. The town of Thera's white-washed houses, narrow streets, open-air cafes and glittering boutiques cling to steep cliff, accessible by cable-car or donkey. To the south is Akrotiri, where recent Minoan excavations support the theories that Santorini might be the fabled lost continent of Atlantis.
