Summary

What does Greece conjure for you? Breathtaking beaches, the footsteps of philosophers, the tracks of ancient Olympians, or gods and goddesses of Greek mythology? Experience it all and more with an affordable vacation in Greece. You choose how to spend your days with MyCOSMOS excursions, and your CosmosGO mobile app has all the details on guided tours, restaurants, and activities to make the most of your days in the Mediterranean. Discover some new destinations on this Cosmos Lite à la carte tour and escape to legendary Greece for eight glorious days, followed by a relaxing 3-night Aegean Islands Cruise. Your affordable vacation in Greece begins and ends in Athens. Explore the Acropolis and Parthenon or simply unwind on the white-sand beaches. Traveling from Athens, you’ll get a look at the Corinth Canal on your way to the mountain resort of Vytina—a favorite holiday spot for locals, and great for hiking. In Olympia, you could visit the archaeological area to see Zeus’ temple, and the birthplace of the original Olympic Games. In the port city of Patras, discover the Byzantine castle of emperor Justinian I, and the ancient Roman amphitheater on your own. En route back to Athens, take in the views along the Gulf of Corinth and then enjoy an included stunning rack-and-pinion train ride along enchanting Vouraikos Canyon from Diakopto to Kalavryta.

From Athens, transfer to Piraeus to board your cruise ship and sail across the blue Mediterranean Sea to the island of Mykonos. From the blue and white houses and windmills of Mykonos, sail to Kusadasi on the turquoise coast of Turkey for an included excursion to explore the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine excavations of Ephesus. You’ll cruise to the tiny Greek island of Patmos, then dock in Heraklion on the island of Crete to explore the palace of Knossos. Your ship sails on to the “Black Pearl of the Aegean”—Santorini—with its blue-domed churches, white houses, and breathtaking views from clifftops perched on the volcanic caldera. Return to Piraeus to disembark your ship and return to Athens. An affordable vacation in Greece and Mediterranean cruise for the ages!
