Ancient Greece

Islands steeped in myth and history

Join us for this unparalleled and comprehensive nine-day Aegean odyssey to the cradle of Western civilization and the classical world. Cruise round trip to Athens, Greece, aboard the Le Lapérouse, launching in 2018. Call on Crete, Santorini, Delos, Mykonos, Pátmos, and medieval Rhodes. Then visit the extraordinary wonder of Meteora, where 14th- and 15th-century monasteries stand high atop soaring natural sandstone pinnacles, and walk through the Palace of Minos at Knossos, one of the most legendary sites in all of antiquity.

Enjoy guided tours in these storied destinations, free time to encounter their mysteries at your own pace during the best time of the year, and opportunities to visit seven UNESCO World Heritage sites. Meet local residents during the specially arranged Island Life® Forum for a personal perspective on the true character of the Aegean Sea’s maritime culture.
