Greece Cruise Holiday Highlights

No Greece cruise is complete without dipping into the ancient culture – whether wandering around the churches, monasteries and temples of Piraeus, marvelling at the Delphi ruins, or discovering the marble sculptures from the Aegean

Selection of Greece Ports

Santorini, Greece

Think of Santorini, and you’ll likely picture the architecture – specifically whitewashed buildings and blue domes – of the village of Oia.

Katakolon, Greece

The small Greek port of Katakolon is the gateway to the birthplace of the Olympic Games, and fruit is still a major export – though now they prefer to turn it into wine.

Mykonos, Greece

One of the most visited Greek islands; Mykonos is a jewel in the Aegean Sea, famed as a vibrant and cosmopolitan destination.

Athens, Greece

The Acropolis - 'High City' - will always be the top attraction from Athens cruise port Piraeus. The Acropolis is unsurpassed in its beauty, architectural splendour and historic importance.

Rhodes, Greece

Rhodes is one of a kind: amazing beaches, medieval castles and archaeological sites. Its beauties are endless.

Zakynthos, Greece

This most southerly of the Ionian chain is still one of the most ruggedly beautiful of all the Greek islands.

Explore Greece on a Mediterranean Fly-Cruise Holiday

Turquoise seas lap white sandy beaches, and on shore, a world of history, culture and adventure awaits. Where else can you stretch out on a sun-drenched slice of sand one day, and explore ancient temples the next? Then there’s the food –from moussaka to souvlaki, it’s hard to put afoot (or fork) wrong. Make the most of days in the sunshine and wake up to a stunning new view every day with a Mediterranean Fly-cruise, the simple way to get to the heart of Greece.

Reasons to visit Greece on a cruise holiday

Spectacular Sites

There are some spectacular sites to see in Athens, including the Parthenon, Temple of Athena and the Odeon, as well as a maze of accessible streets lined with shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. Try to catch the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier too.

The birthplace of the Olympic Games

Katakolon has plenty of shops, cafés, boutiques and restaurants to keep you busy for the day, especially with the lovely little beach. It’s the gateway to Olympia – birthplace of the Olympic Games. Over three million people a year visit the historical site and its archaeological museum, with lovely lush valleys filled with fruit and vegetable fields en route.

Greek Food

Greek cuisine is among some of the very best in Europe and the Greeks are immensely proud of it. A cruise to Greece is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the local fare.

Heraklion, Greece

The proud city of Heraklion is the modern capital of Crete. The town’s charm has been carefully preserved despite its growing popularity as an upmarket holiday resort.

Chania, Greece

West of Souda is the charming old Venetian town Chania. Cobbled streets lined with colourful Venetian townhouses zigzag downward toward the harbour, which has a touch of Florence or Venice about it.

Gythion, Greece

What could be more off the beaten track than a genuine ghost town? Gythion itself is a traditional Greek fishing port, packed with shops, tavernas and authentic old buildings.

Corfu, Greece

Thanks to the mix of hot, dry summers and winter rains, thousands of olive trees, lemon groves and cypress trees dominate the landscape of Corfu.

Nafplio, Greece

It’s baffling and thrilling in equal measure that Nafplio – one of the most beautiful towns in Greece – is something of an unknown gem.
