If you haven’t filled up your travel bucket list for this year yet, think about adding an Athens to Athens Cruise with SeaDream Yacht Club to the plans. This 7-Day dream cruise departs on September 3rd, so there’s still time to book, but you should reserve your space quickly.
SeaDream’s Athens to Athens Cruise will surely be a favorite small-ship cruise for 2016, taking passengers to historical and stunning locales like Athens, Hydra, and Mykonos.
Your Athens to Athens Cruise with SeaDream Yacht Club begins in Athens (Piraeus) on the 3rd, at 2 p.m., and it sets sail to dock in Hydra on the 4th and then Sifnos Island on the 5th. The cruise visits Parikia, Paros on the 6th and heads to Patmos, Kusadasi and Mykonos before returning to Athens on September 10th.
Athens, your embarkation city, is the capital of Greece as well as Greece’s largest city. It’s one of the oldest cities in the world, with recorded history going back about 3,400 years. When you visit Athens, you’ll quickly notice that the heritage of the classical era is still alive there. There are numerous ancient works of art and monuments to view, the most famous probably being the Parthenon. In Athens, you’ll have the chance to see the Acropolis and the medieval Daphni Monastery, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You’ll be able to explore Piraeus on your own or hire a private tour guide to lead you.
Hydra offers just one main town, called “Hydra port.” The port is a crescent-shaped harbor that has a strip of markets, restaurants, shops and galleries to explore. Tourists and locals love to spend time in Hydra, wandering the steep stone streets that lead from the harbor area to the public spaces. Hydra’s charm lies in her rich history and beautiful, pristine waterfront.
On Mykonos, one of the most visited Greek Islands, beauty abounds as does nightlife and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. Part of a group of islands called the Cyclades, which also includes Tinos, Paros, Syros, and Naxos, Mykonos is an 85.5 square-foot isle that is sophisticated, historical, and unforgettable.
