Piraeus (Athens, Greece)

Athens is still as iconic as ever. Winding pathways from ancient times transformed into modern-day roads and streets lead you to the monumental gateway of the Acropolis and other archaeological sites. It is a land soaked in history and mythology, but not stuck in the past.

As you wend through back alleys, passing the street art and getting serenaded by street musicians, you are never lost. You are simply taking a journey to an unknown destination. You may find yourself at the likes of the Church of Agioi at the southeast corner of the Holy Apostles Ancient Agora, a less-crowded historical site away from the flocks of tourists.

Try your hand at haggling with local vendors at the Plaka or Monastiraki flea market. There are so many handmade wares and trinkets to peruse and purchase. Keep an eye out for the more risqué souvenirs if you want a good laugh.

Aside from venturing through the cradle of Western Civilization, you can explore the port of Piraeus. It is the biggest port in Greece and one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean. Centuries of history have transformed this seaside town from a wartime fortress to a major shipping and transportation center.

Skopelos, Greece | Skiathos, Greece
Skopelos, Greece | Arrive: 7:00 AM | Depart: 1:00 PM
Skiathos, Greece | Arrive: 3:30 PM | Depart: 10:00 PM
On the picturesque archipelago of Sporades, there is an enchanting island with whitewashed houses clinging to steep slopes. Skopelos is the picture of Grecian serenity and beauty that you have come to recognize in paintings, postcards and, most especially, in the Hollywood film, Mamma Mia! Two of the main filming locations were the Kastani beach on the west coast of the island and the clifftop church of Agios Ioannis Kastri in the northeast. More than retracing Meryl Streep’s footsteps, Skopelos has much to offer fans of water sports. With a coastline that is burrowed with snug little coves, you can spend the day out on your kayak or standup paddleboarding.

The Aegean boasts many treasures, a few of which you can find on the Sporades archipelago. Skiathos, the westernmost island of this chain, is blessed with more than 60 legendary beaches. Among the most popular is Koukounaries Beach, backed by pine trees and touted as the best beach in Greece. The northwest coast’s beaches are less crowded, but are subject to the strong summer northeasterly winds. For incredible windsurfing, head west of Koukounaries to Agia Eleni Beach. Perched dramatically on a rocky headland above the north coast is the original site of Kastro, the fortified pirate-proof capital of the island from 1540 to 1829.

Thessaloniki, Greece
The second-largest city of Greece, Thessaloniki is known as “the co-capital,” a nod to its historic status as the co-reigning city of the Byzantine Empire. Between the well-preserved Roman Agora to the Agios Demetrios church and Byzantine Baths, both UNESCO-listed sites, Thessaloniki’s rich past comes to life. The famous bougatsa of Thessaloniki is a flaky filo pastry filled with custard and topped with powdered sugar and cinnamon and best enjoyed alongside a cup of Greek coffee. For nature lovers, the city’s Axios Delta National Park contains fascinating wildlife such as water buffalo, flamingos and wild horses.

Volos (Meteora), Greece
The Meteora is a rock formation in central Greece hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries, second in importance only to Mount Athos. The six monasteries are built on immense natural pillars and hill-like rounded boulders that dominate the local area.

At Sea
Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore

Kusadasi, (Ephesus), Turkey

Making port in the coastal resort town of Kusadasi from the Aegean Sea, travelers are greeted by a castle on Pigeon Island surrounded by lush, green trees. The causeway along the route connects this lone island to the mainland of Kusadasi, where visitors will disembark to begin their exploration of Turkey.

Picture this: marble ruins of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World right before your eyes. Through the rubble you gaze upon the impressive Temple of Artemis. This is the experience of Ephesus, a UNESCO-listed, 4,000-year-old city located in Selcuk that is considered the best-preserved classical city of the eastern Mediterranean.

Countless historical sites and ruins abound in the region, from the Basilica of St. John to the House of the Virgin Mary. A visit to Ephesus makes it easy to step into the past and imagine life among the locals in times before. Nothing invokes that feeling more than the ruins of the Library of Celsus, an ancient Roman site where its namesake is buried in a crypt beneath it.

This archaeological zone still buzzes with activity, as archaeologists continue to dig through the ruins and discover its secrets. To walk among the excavations as scientists continue to unearth the site’s remnants makes it hard not to get swept up in the history.

Standing amid the ruins, beyond the excavations, stretching far and wide before your eyes is Ayasuluk Hill. Dotted with palm trees and other foliage, the site creates the perfect picture of the region’s mild climate, making it a vacation haven.

Patmos, Greece
The “Holy Island” of Patmos holds religious history as the site where St. John wrote the Book of Revelations. Venturing over to the Cave of the Apocalypse amid the hills between Skala and Chora, you get a whole new view of the countryside. Along the seaside village you find an array of restaurants with the fresh catch of the day. With quintessential whitewashed houses in the Greek style and iconic windmills against a backdrop of blue skies, the Sacred Land of the Aegean also offers breathtaking panoramas that will impress the most experienced travelers.

Mykonos (Delos), Greece

Wandering is one of the best ways to enjoy the island of Mykonos. Its narrow, winding streets between the iconic architecture of whitewashed houses with blue domes create the archetypal image of modern-day Greece. These constructs serve picture-perfect opportunities at every glance with their colorful shutters, doors, and flowers.

Dotting the horizon up on the hill lie the renowned windmills of this island among the Cyclades. The sight of these windmills invokes a feeling of seeing into the past amidst a contemporary city, depicting the perfect harmony of past and present.

The aroma of an old bakery, which still uses a 15th century wood-burning stove, entices you with the delicious scents of Greek pastries and baked goods. It is not a visit to Mykonos without sampling the local favorite, loukoumádes, fried dough dripped in honey, and sometimes topped with sesame seeds.

Taking the ferry to Delos, you reach an uninhabited island in the Cyclades archipelago. It is dedicated solely as an archaeological site with ties to ancient Greek mythology as the birth site of the sun god Apollo. It is the only island in the world entirely comprised of ruins.

Although many stones lay strewn across the ground, there are still plenty of columns and partial constructs standing, defying the test of time. The stark white Doric temples against the deep blue backdrop of the Aegean create an image straight out of myth, making you a part of it.

Santorini, Greece

When you think of the quintessential whitewashed houses of Greece with blue domes and windmills sprinkled throughout the landscape, it’s Santorini that comes to mind. This island of the Cyclades contains lush scenery, a quaint charm and cosmopolitan feel all at once.

Just 300 steps down from the northern city of Oia you will find Amoudi Bay, an exquisite vista of vibrant red cliffs and the caldera that demand you stop and take in the view. In the little village of the bay you will find the Greek island life thriving amid the local tavernas serving the catch of the day.

Discover one of the most prominent excavations of prehistoric settlements in the Aegean at the Akrotiri archaeological village. Ruins from the ancient city date back as far as 1700 BCE before it was buried by a volcanic eruption. But the first inhabitants date even further back to the Late Neolithic period (fourth millennium BCE).

For the wine lovers who are curious about the history and process of their favorite drink, the Koutsoyannopoulos Wine Museum is a must-visit. Nestled within a natural cave six meters underground, a tour of the museum and tasting of the vineyard’s Volcan wines is an experience like none other.

A visit to Santorini is not complete until you sample the local fare – fava me koukia. Mashed fava beans are prepped with lemon, parsley, dill and fennel for a delectable Greek dish popular among the islanders. Or opt for tomato gefthedes (tomato fritters) for another savory selection.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

Athens is still as iconic as ever. Winding pathways from ancient times transformed into modern-day roads and streets lead you to the monumental gateway of the Acropolis and other archaeological sites. It is a land soaked in history and mythology, but not stuck in the past.

As you wend through back alleys, passing the street art and getting serenaded by street musicians, you are never lost. You are simply taking a journey to an unknown destination. You may find yourself at the likes of the Church of Agioi at the southeast corner of the Holy Apostles Ancient Agora, a less-crowded historical site away from the flocks of tourists.

Aside from venturing through the cradle of Western Civilization, you can explore the port of Piraeus. It is the biggest port in Greece and one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean. Centuries of history have transformed this seaside town from a wartime fortress to a major shipping and transportation center.

Nafplion (Mycenae), Greece
In the Saronic Gulf lies the charming small town of Nafplion, Greece. Narrow stone streets amid whitewashed houses and quaint local shops create a romantic picture straight out of a postcard. Find the steps leading to Palamidi castle perched on a cliff atop the town for a heart-pumping exploration. Not far from Nafplion you can explore the remains of King Agamemnon’s castle in Mycenae. This site contains the history of the dominating culture of mainland Greece from the late Bronze Age. Nearby in Epidaurus discover the famous amphitheater where you can stand in certain points at the bottom and hear the speaker at a location in the seats all the way to the top

Corinth Canal Transit | Itea (Delphi), Greece
Corinth Canal Transit | Arrive: 8:00 AM | Depart: 9:00 AM
Itea (Delphi), Greece | Arrive: 1:00 PM | Depart: 6:00 PM
Greece’s Parliament did not authorize the canal’s construction until 1869, and even then, work did not begin until 1882. But a lack of capital set back the construction. In 1890 work on the Corinth Canal started once more and was finally completed for its use for the first time on October 28, 1893. Its final construction stands at 70 feet wide at sea level, 81 feet wide at its top level, 300 feet tall and only about four miles long. Its narrow construction is too small for modern freight ships, but smaller expedition vessels and private boats can freely navigate its route for an adventurous tour.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

Before heading into the legendary Delphi, you can dock in the charming coastal town of Itea. Feel free to explore Miami Beach (not to be confused with Florida’s), its prestigious Blue Flag beach. The expansive local fields of Amfissa olive trees create a lush, green landscape known as the “sea of olives.” The peak of Mount Parnassus in the distance adds to the sense of wonder in this picturesque scenery made for an impromptu photo shoot.

When you’re ready for some ruins, the Oracle at Delphi awaits. To explore the Sanctuary of Apollo and other ancient remnants, you must climb the slopes of the mountain on a path known as the Sacred Way. It is here you will gaze upon what’s called the navel of the world.

As you stand among the crumbling stones that make up the Athenian Treasury and ancient stadium, you cannot help but get swept back in time. There is a great sense of adventure that makes you feel like a certain iconic archaeologist as you step over stones the ancient Greeks once walked. Panoramic views behind the remaining structures create a richer picture of life before modern times. The surrounding environment creates a harmonious balance between nature and manmade marvels.

Delphi is a place where history and mythology become entangled, where one cannot exist without the other. Everything feels simpler. But that does not make it any less inspiring. It is a privilege to witness these ancient Greek ruins that have stood the test of time.

Fiskardo, Kefalonia, Greece
Amid the Ionian island of Kefalonia lies a small fishing village, Fiskardo, with all the charms of a tiny Greek town but the elegant feel of a luxurious getaway. As a popular choice for yachts to dock, the harbor hosts plenty of upscale seafood restaurants. Opt for a quick dip after a day of adventure at one of Fiskardo’s many pebble coves. For a more typical beach day, venture about 40 minutes out to the famous Myrtos Beach. If you’re seeking a day filled with activity, try diving, snorkeling or kayaking with the locals. Find great hiking at the Venetian Lighthouse, Cypress and Battery Trails.

Corfu, Greece
In the north of the Ionian Sea lies Corfu, a Greek island with history and cultural influence from the French, Venetians and the English, all leading to its modern-day, cosmopolitan reputation. While most Greek Isles are associated with ancient ruins, Corfu offers a different historical lens with monuments like Achilleion Palace. It also holds a quainter side with surrounding villages to explore like the charming ghost town of Old Perithia in Kasiopi. It’s not a trip to Greece without visiting some of Corfu’s stunning beaches like Canal d’Amour or Paleokastritsa.

Saranda (Butrint), Albania
The horseshoe-shaped bay of Saranda on the Albanian Riviera lies between the Ionian Sea and rolling hills of olive groves. When visiting, the Butrint National Park should hold a spot on your bucket list. This UNESCO World Heritage Site and Ramsar Wetland Site of International Importance holds the remains of a city from the Roman Empire, a scenic lagoon and breathtaking mountains. Surrounded by beaches and a promenade, Saranda is a quintessential Mediterranean destination when you’re looking for a simple yet elegant experience. Wander over to the secluded natural bay of Mirror Beach on the way to Ksamil village.

At Sea
Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore

Kotor, Montenegro
Along the Adriatic coast of Montenegro lies the fortified town of Kotor, known for its medieval old town with winding streets and historic squares, as well as its many Romanesque churches and Maritime Museum. For unbelievable views of the Bay of Kotor, hike to the top of San Giovanni Fortress. Stroll through the many vendors, taking in the sounds, scents and colors as they call out their daily specials, produce and homemade goods. Swim the stunning azure waters of the bay with a boat tour to the Blue Cave.

Dubrovnik (Old Town), Croatia
Along the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia lies Dubrovnik, a city well-known for its 16th-century Old Town. Filled with enchanting historic sites and containing a sense of stories past, the Croatian city has rightly earned its place among the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Delve into the fantastical side of the city as you tour the streets that have become part of cinematic history. Take a break from the historic for a relaxing beach day with a quick ferry ride to the nearby Lokrum Island. Delve deep into the local culture with wine and delectable platters of meat and cheese.

World Navigator
World Navigator was conceived with the sensibilities of an explorer – one who believes the world is best experienced up close, while still leaving the destination untouched. She realizes the possibilities of environmental stewardship with the latest hybrid power management and propulsion system, maximizing fuel efficiency and consuming as low as one-fifth the fuel compared to conventional cruise-ship systems. Her alternate hydro-jet propulsion system helps her quietly cruise up to five knots without disturbing marine wildlife for incomparable, up-close encounters. This is how you can best enjoy the world and protect it for others. And as the intimate, yacht-style World Navigator quietly nestles into the amazing, remote and rugged locations on your itinerary, you’ll wonder why anyone would roam any other way.
