On this day you will embark on this adventure, and you will have free time until the next day to walk and stroll through the "city of a thousand Mosques" while enjoying all the services and amenities that the cruise offers us.

After a generous and tasty breakfast, you can enjoy the "city of the thousand mosques" during the day, having the chance to visit attractions of great importance.

We recommend, for example, the Basilica of Saint Sophia, dating from 360 AD, known for its huge dome. It is considered as the epitome of Byzantine architecture and inside it contains a large collection of relics of saints. It was the religious focal point of the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Patriarch of Constantinople for almost a thousand years; Another point worth visiting is the famous and beautiful Blue Mosque, one of the largest in Istanbul, located in front of Hagia Sophia, it has 6 characteristic minarets and both its exterior and its interior have great beauty and luxury; Topkapi Palace which was the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire from 1465 to 1853; among other places of interest.

Then at 18:00 p.m. You will embark again on the cruise to continue your navigation to the next destination. Enjoy the comforts, services, and activities that the cruise offers on board.


A gentle navigation will bring us to Mykonos, and from 14:30 we will have the rest of the day to discover the enchanting Island of the Winds. We will be free to explore its captivating attractions or simply wander through the charming Old Town. Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the immaculate white houses, narrow winding streets, picturesque churches, and delightful dining establishments. Don't miss the iconic white windmills, perfectly arranged along the coastline, offering stunning views of the sea. At 01:00 AM we will set sail for our next destination.

Greca Tip: For history enthusiasts, a visit to the ancient temples on the neighboring island of Delos is highly recommended.


At 08:00 am, after a quiet night of navigation, you will wake up on the Turkish coast where Kusadasi is located, from where you can optionally visit the ancient city of Ephesus. Ephesus is one of the twelve Ionian cities, an important cultural, religious and commercial center of antiquity visited by San Paul, Marco Antonio, and Cleopatra, among others.

Enjoy at your own pace a journey through time, particularly in the golden age, which has shaped the fundamental center of commerce and spirituality. Built 3,000 years ago, Ephesus formed the history of Greek, Turkish and Christian civilizations, from its privileged location, chosen by the Oracle of Delphi. A place of pilgrimage, due to its proximity to the Temple of Artemis (one of the 7 Wonders of the World) and the presence of important Christian figures within the city walls.

Greca Tip: Ephesus is one of the largest Roman archeological sites in the Mediterranean. The splendor of its golden age is visible through its exceptionally well-preserved streets and ruins. While you explore this UNESCO World Heritage site, you will have the opportunity to breathe in the centuries of cultural effervescence, visible in the Ephesus Agora, the Odeon, the Houses of the Patricians, the beautiful Temple of Hadrian and the amazing Library of Celso. You will also have the opportunity to negotiate and buy local merchandise such as carpets, leather goods, souvenirs, etc.

At 18:00 p.m. you will set sail to continue navigation.


After a peaceful night's sailing, you will wake on the famous island of Rhodes, which once hosted one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, "the Colossus of Rhodes".

From your arrival, at about 07:30 AM until your departure at 18:30 PM, you will have a whole day to explore at your own pace the renowned medieval town of Rhodes, recognized by UNESCO as 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.

Greca Tip: Visit the Palace of Grand Master, the Street of the Knights, the old port of Mandraki, and Hippocrates Square in the medieval Old Town of Rhodes and try some of the island's traditional delicacies, such as Pitaroudia with chickpeas fritters and melekounia, a healthy dessert with sesame and honey.  


In the early morning, after a gentle night of 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 Ages 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 06:30 am to 21:00 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.


Upon arrival at the Port of Piraeus and after your tasty breakfast, you will be able to optionally enjoy a panoramic tour to the most relevant points of the city of Athens. You will have free time to visit the Neoclassical Athenian center: Parliament, the tomb of the unknown soldier, University, National Library and Academy, Temple of Zeus, Hadrian's Gate, Panathinaiko Stadium, and many other monuments and places of interest before returning to the vessel.

Greca Tip: Do not miss strolling through the alleys of Plaka or enjoy a coffee in the pedestrian street Dionisio Aeropagitis.


At 15:00 p.m. after having enjoyed the comforts of our cruise, you will arrive in Istanbul for disembarkation.

From Greca we hope to see you again to enjoy some wonderful moments that will remain forever in your memory.
