Athens and the Greek Isles


Detailed information and registration form

MapFly to Athens and spend two days in one of the world’s most ancient cities.  Among other things, enjoy a private Athens tour, visit the Acropolis and dine al fresco in the Plaka Old City.  Then board the Celestyal Olympia for a three-night cruise visiting five enchanting destinations in the romantic Aegean Sea.  Discover the celebrated history, landscapes and landmarks of Mykonos, Kusadasi, Patmos, Crete and Santorini.  After the cruise, visit the Temple of Poseidon and return to Athens for two additional nights.

This has turned out to be a very popular trip; there are more people interested in going than space available.  If after reading through the attached flyer you decide you want to go, don't delay; make your reservation sooner, rather than later.  The $750 deposit per person fully refundable up until January 22, 2023.
