The Benedictine community, now numbering some 80 monks, has served the shrine for almost 1,000 years. They are dedicated to a life of prayer, to working and to welcoming pilgrims, making the site a place for dialogue, prayer and culture. In addition to the monks, the escolans also live in Montserrat. They form the oldest boys choir in Europe ( and might be available during the visit). You will be given a tour of the monastery, and have some free time before taking the coach to the airport.

Please note:  Comfortable shoes, water, a light jacket and a hat are recommended. There are downhill and uneven paths, plus cobblestones to walk over. There may be long lines to view the Black Virgin up close.  This excursion may operate in reverse. Access to the Basilica might be denied if mass is taking place.

Gythion, Mystras Byzantine City
This tour by motorcoach will cross the plain of Laconia through its orange and olive groves, with the mighty Taygetus Mountain (7,897 ft.) in the background to arrive in Sparta, which today is a big, modern town. As the original Spartans cared little for buildings and lived a “Spartan” existence in barracks, their ancient architecture was simple and basic. Today, its scanty remains reflect little of Sparta’s ancient renown. Four miles west however, sits the medieval town of Mystras, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its churches and houses, monasteries and palaces lining the steep narrow streets. For 200 years, from the middle of the 13th century, this Byzantine town flourished. From the mid-15th century to the beginning of our century, the town was in constant decline, with the exception of a few years during which it was under Venetian control. However, the magnificence of the Byzantine architecture, remarkably preserved and sensitively restored, gives you the impression you are entering a whole different age.

Please note: The site is located on a very steep hill so flat rubber shoes are recommended.

You will board your motor coach for the 30-minute scenic drive through Nafplio and past the ancient sites of Tiryns to the ruins of Mycenae. The first in-depth excavations were carried out by the German archaeologist Schliemann in 1876, who was obsessed with finding the grave of Agamemnon. His diligent work exposed the famous Lions Gate, the entrance to the city, which contains the shaft burial graves of some ancient nobles. A short distance away is the Beehive Tomb, so called due to its unusual shape.  Then a short drive will bring you to Fithia Village where a brief shopping opportunity will take place. On the second part of your journey you will return to Nafplio where the Castle of Palamidi stands. From this vantage point there is a lovely panoramic view. The castle was built by the Turks and the Venetians as a fortress and until recently, was used as a prison. The castle is still in a good state of preservation and offers great views and photo opportunities over the entire Argolis bay.

Mykonos, Delos Discovery
Explore the tiny uninhabited island of Delos, one of the most important archaeological sites in all Greece. Start your journey with a 45-minute ferry ride to this richly historic site. Delos was the major center of the ancient Greek world and the mythical birthplace of the god Apollo and his twin sister Artemis. Your 2½-hour guided stroll includes such attractions as the Sanctuary of Apollo with its three temples dating from the 6th and 5th centuries B.C. To the west of this sanctuary lies the Sacred Lake, where Apollo was reputedly born. Standing guard over the Sacred Lake are nine replicas of the famous marble lions, which were a gift from the people of Naxos in the 7th century B.C. Other attractions include the amphitheater and the nearby theater quarter where wealthy owners built opulent houses with grand colonnaded courtyards. The island’s checkered history finally led to its destruction in 88 B.C. by Mithridates, the King of Pontus. Large-scale restoration work has continued for many years and in 1990 the island was declared a World’s Cultural Heritage Site, protected by UNESCO. Your guided walk concludes back at the ferry, for direct return to Mykonos. On arrival there, you are free to return to the yacht at your leisure.

Then, you will visit a new ongoing excavation site of the Church of Mary inside Ephesus. The church is located in the south stoa of the Olympian next to the harbor of Ephesus.

The Council of Ephesus and the Synod declared that church as the center of Christianity in 449 A.D.  Your guide will share some little-known details about the life and times of the ancient city. You will also visit the Ephesus Archaeological Museum.

Leaving Skala harbor, you will take a 10-minute drive to the impressive village of Chora. The Monastery of St. John is situated among gleaming white houses forming a startling contrast to its dark mass. Built in 1088, it has thick, high walls crowned all around with battlements and a total of eight chapels. The courtyard is laid with pebbles and decorated with arches through which one can see the intricately designed frescoes adorning the chapel entrance. The museum houses a magnificent collection of jeweled chalices, crowns and crosses, icons and religious paintings, including an original El Greco. Your tour will continue with a visit to the Grotto of St. John, a 17th century monastery built around the cave where St. John lived for two years while he wrote of the Apocalypse. Inside you can see the stone which he is said to have used as a pillow. After this memorable tour, you will embark the coach for the short ride back to the port.

Departing in your air-conditioned motorcoach, after a short drive you will arrive at the beautiful Plaka village, where you will board your private boat to Kalidon, or the Island of Spinalonga, at the entrance of the Bay of Elounda.  The island of Spinalonga has a rich history dating back over 8 centuries. From the start of the Byzantine Empire in the early 13th  century, it became a crucial outpost of the Venetian power base on Crete for the next 400 years, resulting in the huge fortifications that still dominate the landscape. The island fell to the Ottoman Empire in 1715, and from then until the turn of the 20th century, it was used as a leper colony, finally closing its doors when the last sufferer departed in the 1950s.   Today, the unoccupied island with its fortifications is one of the main tourist attractions in Crete. Return to the Cretan shore and Plaka, where you will arrive at a seaside taverna well known by locals for its fresh fish and Greek cuisine. Relax in its lovely view overlooking the sea, and enjoy a glass of Raki and Greek snacks called mezzes.  Following this refreshing interlude, you will be driven back to the Agios Nikolaos village where you will have free time for strolling around the picturesque village or you can return to the pier.

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.

You’ll re-board the coach and continue on your short narrated journey to the UNESCO Akrotiri Archaeological 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. Finally, you will be taken by coach up to the center of the island to Fira where you will visit the Santozeum to see replicas of the wall art found at the Akrotiri site. From there you may decide whether to stay in the town and visit the Museum of Prehistoric Thera that displays artifacts from the Akrotiri dig, or to make your way back to the yacht directly by taking the cable car to the pier below.

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.

You’ll re-board the coach and continue on your short narrated journey to the UNESCO Akrotiri Archaeological 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. Finally, you will be taken by coach up to the center of the island to Fira where you will visit the Santozeum to see replicas of the wall art found at the Akrotiri site. From there you may decide whether to stay in the town and visit the Museum of Prehistoric Thera that displays artifacts from the Akrotiri dig, or to make your way back to the yacht directly by taking the cable car to the pier below.
