Santorini, Island Overview and Oia Village
Santorini, in the Cyclades Islands, has one of the most spectacular landscapes in all Greece. Traditional villages built on tall cliffs offer breathtaking views over a former volcanic crater, now submerged by the sea. Your island orientation begins with an ascent of Profitis Ilias (Prophet Elias) Mountain, for unparalleled panoramic views encompassing the whole island. Back aboard the coach, you will admire a range of inspirational views en route to the village of Oia. With its picturesque blue-domed churches, old 2-story mansions, and narrow cobblestone streets, Oia is the perfect place to fully appreciate the beauty of this remarkable island. There is no guided sightseeing during your 1¾-hour stay at Oia, so you are free to admire the picture-perfect views or perhaps browse among the tiny shops selling handmade ceramics, paintings and semi-precious jewelry. Finally, there’s a 30-minute drive to the village of Fira where the tour concludes. Once there, your guide directs you to the cliff road from where you may proceed to the cable car at your leisure to return to the ship.    

Please note:  This tour involves winding roads and high altitude.

Santorini, The Ancient City of Akrotiri & Prehistoric Museum
You will be transferred from the ship by local tender boat to Athinios port, where you will join the waiting motor coach. From here you will proceed toward the southern part of the island where you will make a quick photo stop at the ruins of an old windmill that has a panoramic view. You’ll re-board the coach and continue on your short narrated journey to the Akrotiri Archaeological Site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the covered excavations of this advanced Bronze Age civilization. You will be taken back in time as these amazing ruins leave you to imagine what life was like before the village was destroyed around 1650 B.C., by the eruption of the volcano.  It remains a question why there were no people left in the village at the time of the eruption, as it was abandoned for reasons unknown.  It is often said in a whimsical way that perhaps Akrotiri is really the lost city of Atlantis. Next, visit the Prehistoric Museum located in the town of Fira.  In this remarkable museum, you will see an exhibition of artifacts and frescoes which were excavated from the archaeological site of Akrotiri, including the gold Ibix, one of the most famous recent discoveries of antiquities at Akrotiri.  When you leave the museum your tour will end and then after a 5-minute walk you will be at the cable car. From there you may decide whether to stay in the town and do a bit of shopping or to make your way back to the ship directly by taking the cable car to the pier below

Corfu, Paleokastritsa & Boat Trip
This tour visits Paleokastritsa, the area of unique natural beauty on the northwestern shores of Corfu. It is known as the “Capri of Greece” for its rocky promontories cloaked in pine and cypress trees extending out into the sea, hiding small sandy bays and coves with crystal clear turquoise waters glimmering under the bright sun. In Paleokastritsa, you will take a 30-minute boat ride to the famous grottos of the area, the sea caves of “Nafsika,” “Saint Nikolas,” and the “Blue Eye.” Here, the natural ground formations combined with the minerals in the ground and the natural sunlight give life to amazing forms, colors and optical illusions. Upon your return to the main beach, you have free time to enjoy a refreshing dive in the turquoise waters, sunbathe on the soft sand or beach walk, before boarding the coach for the drive uphill to the traditional village of Lakones. You will be driving up the very same serpentine-like, narrow road where the famous car chase in the James Bond movie “For your Eyes only” was filmed.  In the village of Lakones, you can admire local village architecture more reminiscent of Italy than of typical Greek villages, before enjoying a “meze” (Greek snack) and tasting wines of the island at the local café at the “Bella Vista,” a location known for the spectacular and breathtaking views it commands over Paleokastritsa.

Monopoli, Alberobello & Private Visit to a Trullo
Alberobello—nothing less than a fairytale village—will bewitch you with its intriguing charm. This community is famous all over the world for its unique cone-shaped buildings with whitewashed walls and stone roofs, all built without mortar. The village of Alberobello was founded in the 16th century. The local peasants built circular houses on the land without using mortar simply by using the stones that they found on the soil or in caves. An early form of tax evasion so when inspection time rolled around, the peasants simply knocked down their houses.

Your guided tour will start at Terrazzino Belvedere situated in Aia Piccola, which boasts more than 400 trullis. Visit the Old Town (called Rione Monti), which is comprised of 1,030 trullis.

Komiza, Blue Cave of Biservo Island
Biševo Island leaves everyone breathless. The combination of natural phenomena, sandy bays and friendly islanders will remain in your memory forever. The Island of Biševo is 5 nautical miles from the town of Komiža and it is best known for its rare natural phenomenon, the Blue Cave. The interior of the cave and the sea inside it are illuminated with an indescribable silver-blue light. The rays of sun passing into the cave through a small crack in its ceiling are reflected in the sea, creating incredible light effects. When you arrive on Biševo at Mezoporat Bay, you  will get off the boat and the skipper will take you to a small wooden boat ( owned by a concessionaire), which will take you into the cave. The cave entrance is really small, so at a certain point you will need to crouch in the center of the boat while the skipper manages the boat into the cave. Upon visiting Blue Cave, rejoin your speed boat for the scenic ride back to Komiza.

Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring your swimsuit, towel and sunscreen. A life jacket will be provided.
