Fall under the spell of the Mediterranean’s key sites during an 8-day cruise offered by PONANT. With Athens as the departure point, board Le Lyrial for an unforgettable sailing experience discovering exceptional islands and cities.

Your cruise will begin with the exploration of two of Greece’s major sites, from Napflion: the Mycenae ruins and the Epidaurus theatre, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Le Lyrial will then head towards Paros. Nestling in the heart of the Cyclades archipelago, this island reputed for its sublime white marble offers a real concentration of Greek beauty, from whitewashed houses to olive groves to ancient monuments.

A little further north, you will arrive on Mykonos, with its iconic windmills, beaches, countless churches and whitewashed houses.

Following a stop on the island of Patmos, Le Lyrial will leave Greece to reach Kusadasi, in Turkey. An old fishing village with history going back 5,000 years, not far from the Ephesus site, the town is now one of the country’s most famous seaside resorts.

Your trip continues with a stop on the volcanic island of Limnos, near the Dardanelles Strait. Protected during Antiquity by Hephaestus, the god of fire, this green and lush island has now become one of Greece’s major seaside resorts.

Lastly, you will reach Istanbul, where your cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean will draw to an end.
