Santorini (Thira), Greece
Santorini is the crown jewel of Greece’s Cyclades. A massive volcano caldera, brilliant white clifftop villages, and legendary wines list just some of the island’s many attractions.
Cruises from Athens depart from Piraeus, the port of Athens about 7.5 miles (12km) from its city center. Before you leave on your cruise to Greek islands, take time to explore Athens' sun-dappled blend of ancient city and modern metropolis. Get up close to fascinating symbols of Western Civilization, such as the Parthenon, built in the 5th century B.C. See stone-carved stadiums and temples that dwell alongside stacked apartments. Watch the tangerine sun sink into sprawling cityscape from the top of Areopagus Hill. Share a mezze platter with friends, some ouzo and some laughs before it’s time to depart on your cruise from Athens.
Athens stays up long after the sun goes down. Add a hotel package to your cruise and indulge in an unforgettable overnight in Athens.
