Day 7
Volos, Greece
Volos is one of the largest cities of Thessaly and the capital of Magnesia prefecture. A large, dynamic and modern city on the coast of the Pagasitic Gulf shaded by the beautiful Pelion with its picturesque villages. Located almost in the centre of Greece, between the capital Athens (distance 325 km) and the second largest city Thessalonica (distance 215 km).It is situated at the foot of Pelion and it is built on the site which was the ancient Iolkos, where Jason started with the Argo and his companions for the Argonauts.
Day 8
Mykonos, Greece
Frequently visited by many cruise ships for its Greek charm and upmarket cosmopolitan atmosphere – plus there are some excellent beaches.
Day 9
Rhodes, Greece
Rhodes Old Town is an ancient walled city with its cobbled streets and history that dates back to the crusades and the Knights of St John. Visit the Acropolis of Rhodes, Temple of Apollo, Palace of the Grand Master, Modern Art Gallery and perhaps have a flutter in the casino. Stand in the footsteps of the Colossus of Rhodes at the entrance to Mandraki harbour or head for the picture-postcard Lindos with is winding cobbled streets and large beach.
Day 10
Heraklion, Crete
Crete is the southernmost and largest of the Greek Islands. The major port of call is the Capital Heraklion in the centre of the Island. This is close to the ancient Palace of Knossos and the Minoan civilisation from 4000 years BC. Knossos is home to the ancient myth of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth . During world War II Crete was the last bastion of the Greek resistance when the locals helped Allied troops escape South through the Samaria Gorge as German paratroopers invaded from Souda Bay. Here you will high snow-capped mountains, an incredible 12km hiking trail through the Samaria Gorge and ancient Lassithi Plateau with its windmills and the birth-place of Zeus.
Day 11
Santorini, Greece
The most popular port of call on any cruise itinerary is the photographer’s paradise of Santorini. This volcanic island is made up of a crescent shaped Caldera which is the edge of an ancient volcano . Ancient legend suggests that this was the site of the lost city of Atlantis – when the volcano erupted the centre of this island disappeared in to the sea leaving the remnant known as Santorini.
