Cruising the Islands of Greece & Turkey

From £1645 for 8 days
Trip Overview
Santorini and Mykonos lure sun-seeking crowds to their idyllic shores for good reason, but the collection of islands that make up the Cyclades are ripe with less-travelled gems. Cruise the Aegean Sea on a small ship and take in these perennial favourites as well as charming hill villages, secluded beaches and an unusual rock hewn monastery. Delve into the country’s rich history exploring ancient archaeological sites like Delos. Spend a day in Turkey touring the ruins of Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Add a healthy helping of delicious Greek cuisine for an adventure you won’t soon forget.

Where you'll be staying

Galileo

The M/S Galileo is your home at sea in Greece. As a Motor Sailer, the Galileo mostly uses motors for propulsion, reaching a cruising speed of 11 knots, but also has sails for a more romantic option. Built in 2007 and renovated in 2016, the Galileo can accommodate 49 guests in 25 nicely appointed cabins. Traditional wood panelling and trim are found throughout the boat, adding to the old-world charm. We believe in travelling on our stomachs, so the onboard menu reflects typical Greek dishes. And as a smaller ship, the Galileo can dock in smaller ports that larger ships can’t reach, away from the tourist crowds.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Athens, Greece’s historic capital city. Boarding begins at 3 pm and we set sail at 4 pm. The first stop of your journey is Sounion, where a memorable sunset dinner awaits. Get to know your fellow travellers as you dine under the magnificent temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in Greek mythology. Towering 65 metres (213 feet) above the Aegean Sea, its marble columns have inspired many who came before, including poet Lord Byron. Sail overnight to Poliegos.
