Athens/Piraeus, Greece
The Piraeus is the ancient port of Athens and still functions as the chief exit point from the city by sea for destinations amongst the Aegean Islands and elsewhere in the east Mediterranean. Domestic destinations include all of the Aegean islands except the Sporades and some smaller Cyclades and Dodecanese isles that require a connection. International destinations (apart from cruise ships) include Cyprus and the Middle East.

Mykonos (explore the town)
One of the most cosmopolitan of all the Greek Islands and quite justifiably attracting visitors from all over the world, Mykonos is a contrast of rocky hills and beautiful beaches. Hora, the capital, spreads around a colorful harbor in which fishing boats nestle side by side with luxury yachts. The brilliant white cubic houses with white-washed balconies built close together with little shops and tiny churches, make up the backstreets of the town. The harbor is overlooked by a variety of tavernas, and is a popular meeting place as the sun goes down, turning the brilliant whites to beautiful shades of pinks and reds.

Kos, Greece
Situated only just off the Turkish peninsula of Bodrum is Kos, one of the most fertile islands in the Dodecanese. Like Rhodes, it is abundant with ancient remains and beautiful beaches. The landscape of modern Kos Town, the island's capital and main port, is picturesque and luxurious. The Castle of the Knights prevails over the port, while Hellenistic and Roman ruins are littered everywhere.

Patmos, Greece
Patmos is not a big island, but it is one of the best known. The whole island breathes of faith and devotion.

Nevertheless, there is more to the island than its Christian reputation. There are many nice beaches along the jagged coastline, and the people grow fruits and olives on the green hills. The landscape invites you to take long walks and there is much to discover.


Samos Island, Greece
Samos in the eastern Aegean Sea, is separated from Turkey by the mile-wide Mycale Strait. It was the birthplace of mathematician Pythagoras and philosopher Epicurus. The island is known for its sweet Muscat wine. The ancient port of Pythagoreion still show the remains of the underground Eupalinian aqueduct, built in the 6th century B.C.

Epidaurus, Greece
The area of Epidaurus Greece has become a major cultural attraction due to its rich history and its vibrant present. Every summer there are different cultural events such as festivals and theatrical performances. The venue for these performances is the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus which is known for its perfect acoustics. Epidaurus is surrounded by lush green landscape and has access to the sea and beautiful sandy beaches

Dikili, Turkey
A port that is seldom visited on an Aegean cruise and one that is little known to tourists, Dikili is a sleeply little beach town, authentically Turkish. The harbor is lined with open-air restaurants and shops with local food specialties. Take an optional excursion to world-renowned Pergamum.

Canakkale, Turkey
Çanakkale is located in the northwestern part of Turkey. Çanakkale province has both European and an Asian sections. The European section is formed by the Gallipoli peninsula, and the Asian section is part of Anatolia. They are separated by the Dardanelles, the strait connecting the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean Sea. The site of ancient Troy is found in Çanakkale province.

Istanbul, Turkey
Throughout thousands of years, Istanbul's geographical position has maintained its importance. Today it is a huge metropolis connecting continents, cultures and religions, home to eleven million people, and one of the greatest business and cultural centers of the region. Don't miss Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque.
