The Acropolis at sunset. A moonlight supper at the ancient Celsus Library in Ephesus. The Minoan eruption of Thira, where some say the ruins of Atlantis are hidden. Like arms joined in a syrtakis dance, one incomparable experience follows another across the Aegean and the Black Sea, and your white yacht gives you a front row seat to it all. Compare the rich blue of Santorini with that of the Iznik tiles in Istanbul’s Blue Mosque. Get deliciously lost in the labyrinthine lanes of medieval Rhodes. Cross the Dardanelles and Bosporus like the voyagers of old, waving first to one continent and then the other.
