Cruise Itinerary: Hermes

MYKONOS CRUISE - SAILING THE AEGEAN LIKE ODYSSEUS!
1
MYKONOS CRUISE - SAILING THE AEGEAN LIKE ODYSSEUS!

Boarding begins at about 08:30 a.m. and the ship is scheduled to leave the port at 11:30 a.m. Sailing the Aegean in the morning is the ideal time of the day to observe its deep blue color, enjoy the sun on deck or entertain yourself by joining in one of the many activities and services offered by the cruise company. Onboard, Greca Travel includes full board, 2 excursions and a package of unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, so that our only concern is to have a good time.

Your first destination will be the glamorous island of Mykonos, where the cruise ship will dock from 18:00 hrs until 23:00 hrs, before continuing your tour around the wonderful Greek islands. Mykonos is the meeting point of the international "jet set" and famous for its wonderful beaches, dazzling shops, and vibrant nightlife. Only a short distance away from Mykonos there is also the historic island of Delos, the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis according to Greek mythology. This small island, inhabited since 3000 a.C., was one of the most significant cultural centers of Antiquity.

Finally, you will have the opportunity to pre-book other excursions organized by the cruise company to yet more fascinating places in your itinerary.

Greca Tip: Have a drink at one of the bars in Little Venice, wander around the quaint streets of Chora and watch the sunset from the picturesque windmills.

CRUISE KUSADASI AND PATMOS
2
CRUISE KUSADASI AND PATMOS

At 07:30 hrs, after a calm and comfortable night's cruising, you will awaken at the Turkish coast and in the port of Kusadasi. The starting point of your shore excursion will be the ancient city of Ephesus once visited by Saint Paul, Marc Antony, and Cleopatra, among others.  Ephesus was one of the twelve Ionian cities and flourished as an important cultural, religious and commercial center.

At noon, the cruise will depart again, this time to the island of Patmos where Saint John wrote the Apocalypse and Jesus Christ was revealed to him in the Grotto of the Apocalypse. From 17:45 hrs. to 21:00 hrs., you will have the time to visit the cave, the monastery dedicated to Saint John and to stroll in the port of this small but so important island.

ACROPOLIS OF LINDOS AND THE COLOSSUS OF RHODES
3
ACROPOLIS OF LINDOS AND THE COLOSSUS OF RHODES

After a peaceful night's sailing, you will arrive in the famous island of Rhodes, which was once home to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, "the Colossus of Rhodes", a statue of Helios.

From your arrival, at about 07:00 am until your departure at 18:00 hrs. you will have free time to explore the renowned medieval town of Rhodes, recognised by UNESCO a World Heritage Site, the Acropolis of Lindos or simply lay back and enjoy the natural beauty of the largest island in the Dodecanese island complex.

Lindos is located 55 km (40 miles) from the city of Rhodes and “bears” above it the Acropolis of Lindos, with the ancient Temple of Athena, built in 300 B.C. In the old city of Rhodes, you will walk the Street of the Knights, and find their residences.

Greca Tip: Walk through the Palace of the Grand Master and this imposing 14th-century structure with ancient art, exquisite marble and mosaics will give you a tiny glimpse of what life was like way back then.

CRUISE - SANTORINI
4
CRUISE - SANTORINI

In the early morning, after a gentle night sailing, you will arrive at the picturesque island of Santorini. The approach to the island is fascinating and it is the ideal time to photograph the city of Fira, with its white houses hanging on the slope that faces the volcano. The name of the island is the deformation of the name given to it in the Middle Age by the Venetian merchants who called it Saint Irene, as this is the patron saint of the island. In 1576, Santorini became part of the Duchy of Naxos, until the Turkish conquest of Piyale Pasha.

From 09:00 am to 7:00 pm hs Santorini will be at our complete disposal so that we discover its unique and legendary beauty.

Greca Tip: Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world from one of the many coffee stores that are located on the cliffs.

GOODBYE ATHENS - FAREWELL GREECE!!
5
GOODBYE ATHENS - FAREWELL GREECE!!

You will arrive at the port of Lavrion early in the morning, at around 06:00 hrs. You will enjoy a generous breakfast on board your cruise ship and then you will disembark. At this point your cruise to the Greek islands and our services will come to an end.

Undoubtedly, after spending a few fantastic days with Greca, we hope to see you again soon to create new and extraordinary moments that will be etched in your memory forever.

Have a nice trip!, or as Greek people say, Kalo taksidi!
