What a rich program this cruise offers! A unique itinerary including four top Greek islands (Santorini, Rhodes, Crete, Mykonos),
alongside two less known gems of the Aegean Sea: Chios, with its mastic gum trees and houses decorated with sgraffiti and beautiful courtyards decorated with intricate pebble mosaics, and Symi, a jewel of an island, once a haven for the ship-building and sponge industries.
The cruise begins with Istanbul, a city of unique characteristics that marked the Aegean civilization through the centuries, and Kusadasi, gateway to Ancient Ephesus, where one of the seven wonders of antiquity stood for 120 years, the Temple of Artemis.
