Idyllic Aegean with 7-Night Cruise (RL)

11 days from Athens to Athens

2023 Tour Details

The locals say that the best way to drink a glass of ouzo, the Greek anise-flavored liquor, is with a cool splash of water. The best way to enjoy the national drink just might be the best way to savor the nation is other delights. This refreshing tour of Greece creates a big splash with an enlightening tour of Athens followed by a 7-night cruise to the Greek Isles and Turkey. Walk in the footsteps of celebrated philosophers, run down the same paths as ancient Olympians, and then dive into the ancient ruins and resorts of the Aegean where legendary harbors, charming villages, and pristine beaches await. From the colorful volcanic island of Milos to the whitewashed villas of Santorini, and the Old Town of Rhodes to the modern getaway of Mykonos, it’s hard to say which sparkles more; the crystal clear water of the Aegean or the hidden jewels along its storied shores.
