About this Trip
Explore the sea that connects Europe and the Middle East on Agean Cruise. Bask in the Byzantine architecture and cruise the Bosphorus in Istanbul. See the Trojan legacy at Canakkale. Then hop your way between the most impressive Greek Islands, including Heraklion, Volos, and timeless Santorini.
This 8-day round-trip cruise from the port of Piraeus takes you to the most historic and beautiful ports of the Aegean. Your itinerary combines major world cities with the sites of some of the most famous legends in classical history.
Board the Celestyal Crystal in Piraeus, a port city just 12 kilometres southwest of Athens. Consider beginning your trip a few days early and exploring the capital, or simply book an extra day in Piraeus for a more relaxed, seaside vibe. Your first port is Istanbul, the great crossroads between Europe and Asia, straddling the Bosphorus. With your free time, explore the Blue Mosque and the awe-inspiring Hagia Sophia. Visit the city’s atmospheric catacombs, and enjoy magnificent views from the Bosphorus. This is a massive city with lots to see, so you’ll have two full days here.
The name Canakkale may not conjure images of ancient myth, but perhaps ‘Troy’ will. This is the supposed site of that historic city, and the Trojan horse – or at least its modern counterpart – overlooks the waterfront today. Whether the actual Troy exists only in legend is still disputed, but explore for yourself and draw your own conclusions. Your next port is Volos, the Pagaetic Gulf city in the shadow of Mt Pelion, land of the centaurs. Today, it’s an energetic university town full of traditional tavernas.
