Classical Highlights of Greece

10 days

From £2,845

Activity Level:


This wonderfully laid-back introduction to the ancient highlights of mainland Greece combines a 2-night stay in the shadow of the Acropolis with an enchanting cruise aboard the elegant M/S Galileo or the M/S Panorama (departure dependent), circumnavigating the Peloponnese and closing the loop with a transit of the Corinth Canal.

You’ll experience a taste of Athens city life, your cruise ship at full sail and UNESCO World Heritage Sites galore, all brought to life by a renowned local expert. Our package represents sensational value for money, with 26 meals, 4* accommodation in Athens and excursions to the Acropolis and its amazing new museum, Epidaurus, Mani and Delphi amongst the inclusions, but we also have the opportunity to book three further optional excursions (at a small, extra cost) to give you the choice of either exploration or relaxation onboard. In Athens, you will be joined by a local guide and onboard the ship, an expert guest lecturer will accompany you.

Please note that this cruise will operate with passengers onboard that are not travelling with Andante Travels.
