From rugged headlands crowned by ancient ruins to sun-kissed islands graced with whitewashed architecture and shimmering olive groves, discover awe-inspiring scenery on the shores of the Aegean. Depart Istanbul and set sail for northern Greece, where Kavala beckons with a lovely, palm-fringed waterfront and medieval castle. Experience the photogenic charms of Mykonos, with its bougainvillea-lined streets and 16th-century windmills, and explore Rhodes’ powdery beaches and medieval treasures. Browse the colorful market at Kusadasi, a jumping-off point to explore the archaeological wonders of Ephesus, Miletus, and Didyma. Then head ashore at Patmos, known as the “Holy Island,” to admire the Monastery of St. John, a beautiful combination of courtyards, chapels, and frescoes. Before your voyage concludes in Athens, take in the quaint clifftop villages on Santorini, the breathtaking result of a massive volcanic eruption thousands of years ago.
