Fall under the spell of the Mediterranean’s key sites during a 12-day brand-new cruise offered by PONANT on board Le Bougainville, discovering exceptional islands and cities.

From Valletta, you’ll set sail towards Sicily and famous Syracuse, one of the most prestigious Sicilian cities, whose monuments are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage.

Le Bougainville will leave the Italian island for Greek shores, with a stop in the charming village of Gytheio. To the south of Peloponnese, what was once the main port of ancient Sparta is the gateway to the Byzantine city of Mystras, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Santorini, one of the pearls of the Cyclades Islands, then awaits, unfurling the grandiose crater of its caldera. After a stop in Patmos, known as the “Jerusalem of the Aegean Sea” where Saint John is said to have written the Apocalypse, you’ll head for Delos, a minuscule island in the Cyclades archipelago. According to mythology, Apollo was born here.

You’ll then reach Mykonos, its beaches and windmills, and then Syros Island, will surprise you with its authenticity and neo-classical architecture. To round off your circuit around the heart of Greece, the region of Thessaly welcomes you at the foot of Mount Pilio, in the port of Volos!  Among the treasures of this region, you will be able to discover the Meteora, a magnificent set of sandstone rock formations listed with UNESCO, atop which monasteries were built.

Le Bougainville will then make a detour via the island of Hydra, famous for its incomparable light, before calling at the charming town of Nafplio, the departure point for visiting the famous Epidaurus Theatre and the Mycenae site, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Your cruise will end in Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis and its monuments that form the most extraordinary architectural and artistic collection bequeathed by Ancient Greece to the rest of the world.
