Follow in the footsteps of the Romans, Venetians and Ottomans in a journey that will bring thousands of years of history alive. Marvel at the wonders of Istanbul and stand at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Then be captivated by the tales of Jason and the Argonauts.

Day 1 | Athens (Greece)

Depart: 16:00

Sun-drenched and mythic, Athens is a big and modern metropolis with inspiring world heritage marvels at its very heart. The most important city-state in ancient Greece and birthplace of democracy is also the sprawling capital of Greece today, but most of the major archaeological and historical sites are to be found within a compact area around the Acropolis itself. With a recorded history going back more than three millennia, Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, and rightly considered to be the cradle of Western Civilization. Even a short visit of the Greek capital's highlights, starting with the iconic Acropolis, is enough to fall under its legendary spell.

Day 2 - 3 | Istanbul (Turkey)

Arrival: 15:00 | Depart: 18:00

Split between two continents, Europe and Asia, Istanbul is truly unique. It boasts lavish Byzantine architecture and imperial mosques with sky-high minarets that make up the city’s skyline; your first sight from the Bosphorus Strait on your Istanbul cruise. There’s an endless list of must-see sights to tick off, all conveniently packed into the Sultanahmet district.

Day 4 | Çanakkale (Turkey)

Arrival: 08:00 | Depart: 18:00

Cruising in through the Dardanelles strait - straddling Asia and Europe - Çanakkale may sit at the narrowest part, but its history is one to broaden the mind. From the cruise ship, you can spot the wooden Trojan horse on the vast yacht-lined waterfront promenade - serving as a taster of what awaits.

Palm-lined avenues house glamorous shops and gourmet restaurants, and historic cobblestone streets present traditional tavernas and ouzeria’s to satisfy everyone’s taste buds. Beautiful churches appear from every corner, seasonal markets sell colorful local produce and shaded spots on Aristotelous Square are where you can sit back with a homemade ice cream and watch the world go by.

Day 6 | Volos (Greece)

Arrival: 08:00 | Depart: 18:30

Step off your Volos cruise, and you’re greeted by a thriving university city whose energetic pace will whisk you up into its whirlwind of activity, both at the port and in the tsipouradika - traditional tavernas - and set you on course to uncover some real architectural gems, both ancient and neoclassical.
