Leaving Athens’ hip restaurants and Acropolis fortress in our wake, we’ll sail to spectacular Santorini. White-washed villages like Oia spill dramatically down clifftops toward cobalt bays, with hiking trails connecting to ancient thermal baths inland. Moving onto the less-visited Dodecanese archipelago, we dock next at Rhodes. There’s something for everyone here: beaches fringed by gin-clear water, wooded valleys to stroll and a cobbled old town rich in boutique shops.
It’s time for a day in Turkey. The castle-crowned town of Bodrum hosts cosmopolitan cafes in buildings in a blue trim, plus even finer beaches just along the coast. Back in Greece, Patmos ranks among the Christian world’s most sacred sites thanks to its Cave of the Apocalypse – where John of Patmos penned the Book of Revelation around 95 CE.
Pilgrims of a very different kind flock to Mykonos. Hedonistic and party-minded, it’s a seductive place ripe for people-watching – especially amid the labyrinthine, cubist streets of Mykonos Town. Far more rustic is Paros, where fertile hills tempt walkers and the uncrowded seas suit divers and windsurfers. If you’re less activity-minded, marvel at the preserved seaside windmill in capital Parikia. After a full day on this last island, we’ll sail back to Athens’ major port, Piraeus.
