From Athens, set sail for an 8-day cruise in the heart of Greece. From the Thessaly region to the Peloponnese via Macedonia, discover ports nestling in gulfs, unspoiled islands, and ancient monasteries that seem to be hanging from the sky. From the sheer coastlines bordered by paradisiacal turquoise waters to the archaeological sites that are as emblematic as they are monumental, let yourself fall under the spell of these jewels of the Aegean Sea.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. On this cruise, discover the royal tombs of Vergina in Thessaloniki, visit the Meteora monasteries from Volos, or wander through the remains of the fortified city of Philippi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

Discover the charming and verdant island of Skiathos, its beaches, its hiking trails, and its lovely port where some of the scenes in Mamma Mia! were filmed. You will then sail to the port of Volos, nestling in the curve of the Pagasetic Gulf. From there, access Meteora, home to a complex of Orthodox Christian monasteries that blend into the rock and are seemingly suspended in the sky.

Your ship will set a course for Thessaloniki, a big city that is pleasant to wander through and bears the traces of several peoples and civilisations. Your ship will then sail along Mount Athos, a rocky peninsula to which cling twenty imposing monasteries surrounded by superb forests of chestnut trees.

Kavala, a medieval city home to a magnificent aqueduct, marks the spot where East meets West. Inland, the Philippi site is a must-see. Your ship will then take you to the capital of Limnos, Myrina, whose Venetian castle, built on a rocky outcrop, overlooks the sandy shore. From the port, follow the long shopping street lined with houses and shops with small gardens characteristic of the Thracian style.

Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis and its monuments, which form the most extraordinary architectural and artistic ensemble bequeathed to the world by Ancient Greece, will mark the end of this exceptional odyssey.
