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
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 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.
