Best of Greece Gay Group Cruise 2024 Itinerary
Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Ephesus (Kusadasi), Turkey
Fun Day at Sea!
Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Day 1 - Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Athens brought the world drama, history, poetry, and philosophy. Once home to the world's most powerful and civilized empires, Athens is now the world's foremost archaeological playground. The towering columns of the Parthenon still stand in homage to the virgin goddess Athena. The Parthenon sits atop the Athenian Acropolis and watches over the city where it can be seen from just about anywhere in Athens. Make it a point to visit the incredible Acropolis Museum on your cruise from Athens.
Day 2 - Ephesus (Kusadasi), Turkey
Once the capital of the Roman province of Asia Minor, this coastal town is now an archeologist’s dream. The UNESCO World Heritage ruins of Ephesus impress even those familiar with the world's other ancient cities. Though excavations have been underway for 150 years, only 20 percent of the city has been uncovered. This former Greek banking and trading center is rich with historic sites, including the Great Theater, the Temple of Hadrian, and the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Day 3 - Santorini, Greece
Here on the island of Santorini, you’ll find a classic Greek seascape—whitewashed houses accented by sea-blue roofs. This is a treasure trove for both professional and amateur archeology buffs, with sites that include tombs that date back to the 9th century and the sanctuary of Apollo. In many ways, Santorini could be considered an explosive place, being that its terraced collection of homes and windmills lie on a caldera-- a huge basin formed by an erupting volcano.
Day 4 - Fun Day at Sea!
While at sea, take the time to recharge before the next adventure. Lounge by the pool, be spoiled at the spa, taste the delicacies or explore the venues on-board, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.
Day 5 - Thessaloniki, Greece
The second largest city in Greece, Thessaloniki has so much going for it—beauty, history, culture, and absolutely amazing views of the sea. One of its most famous sites is the iconic White Tower which dates from the 1500s and was built as part of the city’s fortification. Head to the top of it for sweeping views of the city, shimmering gulf, and surrounding hills. Practically an open-air museum of Byzantine art, Thessaloniki offers many opportunities to stroll among 5th century churches, archeological sites, a 13th century bathhouse, archaeological museums, and contemporary art museums.
Day 6 - Volos, Greece
Volos, Greece's newest port city, is located at the foot of Mount Pelion and the innermost point of the Pagasetic Gulf. As an important industrial center and bridge between Europe and Asia, this lively seafront destination offers you many things to discover—local cultural activities, museums, cafes, restaurants, and an exciting nightlife area. You will also enjoy its unique architecture, nearby lush mountain ranges, and golden beaches.
Day 7 - Mykonos, Greece
Mykonos is known for its whitewashed villages sprinkled with blue and jade green. It's also famous for its sophisticated gay nightlife. The most popular island in the Cyclades is bustling with activity, awash in beautiful alleyways, and home to alluring sandy beaches.
Day 8 - Athens (Piraeus), Greece Athens is a great city to discover. It can claim to be, in no small part, the birthplace of western civilisation. You’ll see great monuments from Ancient Greece, chiefly the Parthenon. This temple complex looms over the city, the greatest architectural relic of Greece’s Golden Age.
A great city for gay travelers, you’ll find many excellent gay bars and gay clubs in Athens. It also has a celebrated culinary scene. Athens is more than a relic from antiquity. The modern city has so much to offer.
