Scheduled flight from Germany to Athens and transfer to the embarkation point
Piraeus (Athens)/Greece, departure 21.00 hrs
Skiathos/Sporades/Greece , 12.00 – 0.00 hrs
Green hills and white sandy beaches: on Skiathos, you can relax as you go ashore into the heart of nature to do your own thing, be it going for a swim or taking a walk in the pine forests.
Volos/Greece, 6.00 – 18.00 hrs
Whether it’s a walk along the beach, a visit to the taverns on the port promenade or a more active walk on Mount Pelion**, Volos has many diverse hours of downtime to enjoy. The nuns and monks of the monasteries of Meteora** live a life between heaven and earth: out of the woods loom rock monoliths up to 300 m in height with the monasteries balanced on their ledges and peaks. Your insights behind the walls of the monasteries will be just as fascinating as the views.
Thessaloniki/Greece, 7.00 – 17.00 hrs
The glorious history of the city, which was mentioned in sources as early as the Bible, is reflected in its majestic architecture. An unusual way of getting to know Thessaloniki is a walk through the hidden markets**.
Limenas/Thassos/Greece , 8.00 – 15.00 hrs
Kavala/Greece, arrival 17.00 hrs
The island where wine and honey flow: besides its culinary specialities, Thassos is famous for its long sandy beaches, tranquil bays and crystal-clear water. Decide for yourself how to enjoy the beauty of the scenery – for example, with a ride on the beach** or on a trip in an all-terrain vehicle** with you behind the wheel.
Kavala, departure 17.00 hrs
A Byzantine castle looms over the old town of Kavala. Stroll through the centre itself, a protected historical site, and enjoy the perfect mixture of bars, cafes and shopping opportunities. Take an excursion into nature with a walk in Nestos Bay**, a nature reserve which is home to many different bird species.
Dikili/Turkey, 7.00 – 13.30 hrs
Evening passage through the Dardanelles
In this port city, you get to choose: visit Pergamon in conjunction with either the Asclepion** or the archaeological museum**. Whatever you decide, one of the most beautiful excavation sites in Turkey awaits you – and still with the perceptible majesty of a city that is said to have surpassed even Alexandria. In the evening, the EUROPA 2 will pass through the Dardanelles – your veranda will become an exclusive vantage point.
