Dream ports of call for a unique Greek Islands cruise & Turkey

With almost 6000 islands and islets, Greece has an idyllic heritage. Most of these Greek islands are grouped into different archipelagos, all of which are more or less inhabited depending on the size of the islands they comprise.

Crete is the invincible jewel of Greece, the cradle of Greek mythology and the largest Greek island and fifth biggest European island. You will be amazed every single minute you will spend on this island. Indeed , the life that reigns in every city of the island is atypical, the landscapes are breathtaking and food is very delicious there.

Cruises in the Cyclades Island guarantee endless coves, beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters. Although there are about 250 islands and islets in the Cyclades, only 24 are inhabited, the main ones are Amorgos, Ios, Milos, Mykonos, Paros, Santorini, Syros, Tinos...

The Cyclades are a unique archipelago in the Mediterranean, whether it is in terms of size, number of islands or shape. These islands and islets form a gigantic circle with Delos at its center. Delos is uninhabited today but still has the riches of ancient Greece, and is said to be the island where the Greek god Apollo was born... The remains of the island, which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, make this destination very attractive.

The Ionian Islands are made up of 7 main islands: Corfou ('the Emerald Isle'), Lefkada, Ithaca, Paxos, Zakynthos, Ithaca and Cephalonia. Explore this archipelago where the vegetation is lush and every moment has a different flavor.

These small pieces of land are bordered by crystal clear, azure and turquoise water. These islands have dazzling color palettes ranging from the green of the flora to the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and the sandy white of the rocks and beaches you will find there. In short: a paradise. Find total privacy and intimacy there..

The Dodecanese archipelago ("twelve islands" in Greek) is a collection of gems to be discovered on a timeless cruise. Sail along the coasts of Patmos, Rhodes and Ephesus. Discover Crete, the ruins of its ancient kingdoms, the Amari Valley, and all the traditions that make the Greek island so attractive.

Located in the Aegean Sea, this archipelago has more than 160 separate islands and islets! The name of the "twelve islands" can be considered recent given the eventful history of this archipelago which has known several reigns before being under the Greek flag.The "twelve islands" are considered to be representative of the whole archipelago as they united against the Ottomans in 1908.

If the cultural richness of the Greek archipelagos is proven and well known, the landscapes are not left out either... From the whitewashed houses, quite typical of Greece, to the white sandy beaches and bays with clear turquoise water, you will appreciate every moment during your trip.

A turquoise sea as far as the eye can see and white beaches...a dream landscape that will make your body and mind rest in a romantic setting with a touch of mythological fiction. Indeed, remains of Ancient Greece can be seen everywhere in the different archipelagos.
