Globus Iconic Aegean with 4-Night Cruise(RH)

8 days from Athens to Athens 
Sunny beaches, beautiful islands, ruins from some of Europe’s oldest civilizations, plenty of fun, and much more await you on this marvelous escorted tour of Greece and Greek Island cruise.

Your tour starts and ends in Athens and includes guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide. Among the sights you will see, you’ll visit the Acropolis, located on a rocky promontory and dating to the 5th century BC. Then enjoy the highlight of your vacation, a 4-night cruise on the Aegean Sea cruising to some of the world’s most beautiful islands.

Visit Mykonos, Greece's most famous cosmopolitan island with its seafront village, sandy beaches, and whitewashed houses. Wander through the picturesque alleys and narrow streets; take photos of the windmills that overlook the embankment; relax at a waterfront café; and watch for the official mascot of Mykonos, a pelican. In Kusadasi, on the Turkish coast, enjoy the white-sand beaches and shopping in the covered bazaar, or perhaps join an optional excursion to ancient Ephesus, with its fascinating Greek, Roman, and Byzantine excavations.

You'll also cruise to Heraklion, Crete's capital nestled picturesquely between two mountain ranges with archaeological treasures and beautiful scenery; Rhodes, with one of Europe's largest medieval towns; and Patmos, where St. John the Divine wrote the Revelation. In Santorini (weather permitting), still an active volcano offering one of the world's most breathtaking panoramas, you'll see bright white buildings and cliffs rising from the Aegean Sea—one of Greece’s most beautiful spots.

When not on an island, enjoy the ship's many amenities. Sunbathe, sip a cool drink, splash in the pool, and relax. The Greek Islands are calling you, and now is your chance to experience their beauty and fascinating histories. Stunning scenery, ancient monuments, and the chance to immerse yourself in the beautiful Greek Islands…this guided tour of Greece with a 4-night Greek cruise is a dream vacation!
