Santorini, Greece ~ 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Whitewashed villages clinging to the sides of the sea cliffs have made the volcanic island of Santorini one of the most widely photographed places in the world. The island's charm and subtle mystery have even made it a target of speculation as the location of the lost city of Atlantis.

 

Day 4

Athens (Piraeus), Greece ~ 7:00 am - 7:00 pm

This is the cradle of civilization, the oldest city in Europe. Not only is this city home to the Acropolis and some of the most important architectural structures and archaeological finds in the Western world, It is also a very modern city, an urban amalgam of extraordinary art, culture, cuisine and shopping.

 

Day 5

Mykonos, Greece ~ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Mykonos is a classic Greek Island with whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and windmills. Add a reputation for beautiful beaches and you'll understand why Mykonos is the most popular island in the Cyclades. Explore the island in a 4 x 4 or take a ferry to the tiny island of Delos.

This Greek island just off the coast of Turkey exudes beauty and history. Take a walking tour of the old fortified city and stand in awe of the impressive Grand Master’s Palace.

Along the scenic coast lies the whitewashed town of Lindos with its ancient acropolis and stunning views.

 

Day 7

Chania, Crete, Greece ~ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

One of the most beautiful cities on the island of Crete, charming Chania has also been the site of many great battles.

Day 8

Valletta, Malta ~ 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Messina (Sicily), Italy ~ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

The third largest city on the island of Sicily, Messina welcomes cruise ship visitors with its lovely harbor, extraordinary architecture (much of which miraculously survived a horrendous earthquake and tidal wave in 1908) and wonderful food. Stroll through Messina's Piazza Cairoli taking in magnificent fountains and cathedrals, or sip Marsala wine at a sidewalk cafe.

Cruise to Naples, located on Italy's stunning Amalfi coast, a city rich in history. A tour around Naples' grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles in the old center will take you back centuries.
