10-Night Greece Intensive Voyage on Azamara Journey
Your Greek adventure begins in Athens, where Europe’s oldest city offers endless opportunities to explore striking architecture and legendary historic sites. After you depart from Athens, you’ll spend a night at sea, where you can unwind and enjoy Broadway-caliber entertainment or a pampering spa treatment as you gear up for the rest of your journey. In Kavala, picture-perfect beaches beckon, or spend the day shopping or exploring the 15th-century castle that crowns the city. Next, Thessaloniki’s 15 UNESCO World Heritage sites await, as does a lively nightlife scene that you can soak up during a late-night visit. In Volos, spend time strolling the city streets and working up an appetite for a fresh platter of calamari, paired perfectly with the beloved local spirit, tsipouro.
Mykonos is next on the agenda, famed for its brilliant whitewashed structures, bright blue roofs, and gorgeous, sun-drenched harbor views. On a late stay in Rhodes, explore one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities before cruising on to Marmaris, a bustling, social city where Turkish delights (both cuisine and souvenirs) are plentiful. Back in Greece, you’ll stop in Santorini, where you can take the cable car up the mountain to witness an incredible sunset view-thanks to another late stay in port. Next up is Chania, where you can tour a museum–or simply wander the city streets–for a glimpse into Greek and Cretean history. Your journey concludes back in Athens, where you can revisit old favorites or explore the sites you may have missed on day one.
