Home of mythological gods and archaeological delights, Greece has delighted visitors for decades. It may be the history, mild climate and magnificent scenery that attracts you, but it’s the friendly people who will make you want to return.
Our holiday begins and ends in the vibrant capital city of Athens, known for its fantastic museums and archaeological sites. Our touring will show us the Acropolis and Parthenon, as well as beautiful Cape Sounion. There will also be ample time at leisure to enjoy the many museums, cafes and shopping in “The Plaka”.
After our initial stay in Athens we will embark on a 4-day “Classical Coach Tour” taking in the major historic sites of Delphi, Kalambaka, Nafplion, Mycenae and Meteora. Next, we enjoy three nights on the island of Mykonos, considered one of the most beautiful and popular islands in Greece, with its trademark windmills, glittering white houses, cobblestoned streets and lively atmosphere.
A highlight of our tour will be our 4-night Greek Island cruise aboard one of the ships in the Celestyal Cruises fleet. These are smaller and less formal ships, ideal for cruising around the islands yet more than well equipped for your comfort. Celestyal ships have bright and welcoming public rooms, various bars and lounges, a casino, movie theatre, library, boutiques and plenty of deck space. The entertainment programme includes shows, special events and music and dancing nightly. Dining on board is always a treat, as the team of expert chefs are eager to please with their wide array of international specialties. Unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are included and available all day. For this cruise we have all outside cabins that are bright and comfortable, equipped with climate control, audio music channel, phone and private bathroom (shower only). A special feature of our program is that we have included shore excursions on 3 of the most interesting and beautiful islands.
*** Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
