13.00hrs Arrival at the Turkish port, where you will visit Ephesus, one of the most complete ancient cities ever excavated. Excavations have revealed grand monuments of the Roman Imperial period including the Library of Celsus and the Great Theatre.
Every step we take in Ancient Ephesus brings us closer to the Hellenistic, Roman and early Christian eras. We will enjoy a truly exceptional experience in one of the most important and complete classical cities in Europe, even though only a fraction of it has been uncovered. We pass through the Magnesian Gate and wander through the Agora, Odeon, the magnificent and restored Library of Celsus, the marble-paved Main Street of Curetes, Baths of Scholastica, The Great Theatre, Trajan’s Fountain, the Houses of the Patricians, Prytaneum and the Temple of Hadrian. Opposite Hadrian’s Temple, at the foot of the Bulbul Hill and the covered part of the archaeological site, protected from the heat and natural elements, lie the Houses of Koressus or Terrace Houses. It was here that the wealthy families of Ancient Ephesus lived. These villas are excellently preserved, especially the interior decor. The oldest houses so far unearthed date from the 1st Century BC, were built on two storeys and even had hot and cold water and a heating system, clay pipes under the floor. They were even constructed to a city plan in which roads intersected with each other at right angles. Ephesus, which became the second largest city in the Roman Empire, was dedicated to the goddess Artemis and the magnificent temple built to honour her took 120 years to complete. It is one of six of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that have long gone. Our tour includes time to shop for souvenirs, carpets, jewellery, leather and other goods.

08.00hrs Arrival Crete full of tropical beaches, traditional villages each with its own history, a huge variety of gorgeous landscapes, and remains from ancient civilizations, Crete has been writing its history for the last 5,000 years. A melting pot of scenery, food, music, history, handicraft... an art of life to discover and understand. Heraklion is the largest urban center in Crete, the capital of the region and the economic center of the island. The first European civilization, the Minoan civilization, flourished on this land 5000 years ago. It is a very dynamic and cosmopolitan town. Knossos was the capital of Minoan Crete. Seat of the legendary king Minos, it is the birthplace of thrilling stories, such as the myths of the Labyrinth with its Minotaur and of Daedalus and Icarus.

07.00hrs Arrival Santorini Island
The power of this volcanic island – Santorini creates an energy that overwhelms the senses. Often its two small fisherman ports Ammoudi and Armeni. A unique vantage point for viewing and photographing the lovely traditional settlement of Oia and the famous sunset.
This trip is a must for those who want to acquaint themselves just a little better with the islands fringing the caldera, the volcanic remnants. A small boat will take us first to Nea Kameni. Its geology resembles a lunar landscape. We walk up the verge of the crater, the heart of the volcano and its an experience that should fill you with awe. The beaches of Nea Kameni are embraced by thermal springs. Our next stop on this special excursion is Palea Kameni with its therapeutic warm waters. The sea temperature here is five degrees higher than elsewhere and the green-yellow water contains sulphur. After our trip to the volcano, we have a change of pace as we visit the energetic Fira, the island’s main town, for a stroll around, a quiet drink or simply the chance to soak up the atmosphere. We descend by funicular (ticket included in the excursion) to the Old Port for the transfer back to the ship.

08.00hrs Arrival Mykonos Island - the Island of Winds. Strolling around the cobblestone alleyways of the main town (or Chora) encapsulates everything magical about Mykonos.
We set off by coach from Mykonos Town, also known as Chora. We visit the lovely colourful beach of Kalafatis. On our return trip to Chora we call at the traditional village of Ano Mera and the monastery of Panagia Tourliani, founded in 1542. It houses a wonderful collection of icons and has a beautiful bell tower and marble fountain, well worth seeing. The delightful village square of Ano Mera is the perfect spot for a short break and maybe a coffee. You’ll be relaxing in one of the island’s oldest communities. Back in Mykonos Town we stop at the Paraportiani church (which literally means Our Lady of the Side Gate and is actually made up of five churches) and the Folklore Museum. Here you can see many exhibits including traditional costumes, furniture and personal items typical of Mykonos life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the island of more than 100 years ago We finish at Little Venice, the neighbourhood of Alefkhandra to admire those famous windmills, a sight you can surely never tire of
