Get into the spirit for your cruise during our pre-cruise programme* in Athens.
This island is quintessentially Greek like no other. Black volcanic rock juts out of the sea and 300 m into the air to make for a fascinating contrast to the gleaming white houses. Discover the original Santorini in the winding alleys of Megalochori and Pyrgos*, or enjoy unique views of the coast on a catamaran ride around the caldera*.
Simply take the plunge.
Underwater worlds shaped by volcanic force and submerged archways and columns: Santorini and Zakynthos are wonderful diving locations. Our travel concierge will be happy to organise a personal diving experience* for you.
Zakynthos promises fascinating discoveries. Explore the highlights* of Zakynthos including the villages of Lithakia und Bochali and enjoy Greek wine and folklore* or relax as you sunbathe in Smugglers Cove*.
Surrounded by orange and olive groves, Catania – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – lies nestled at the foot of Mount Etna. Get active and explore the dreamlike volcanic landscape in an off-road vehicle* or as part of a quad bike adventure*. Canyoning in the Alcantara Gorge* also promises pure adrenaline.
The hustle and bustle of Sicily: traders at the fish market in Catania sell hundreds of types of fish – and are constantly outdoing one another in their attempts to draw attention to their goods.
An open-air museum full of palaces, churches and squares: Palermo combines a historic legacy with a relaxed lifestyle. For example, try Sicilian wines* at a winery or discover the secrets of Sicilian cuisine*.
Be it artists, politicians or writers, Capri has attracted the European jet set for over 100 years. Discover a holiday paradise bathed sunlight and which changes in colour from one hour to the next. The highlight of the island is a place without sunlight – the legendary Blue Grotto – which you can explore on your own.
All roads lead to Rome. Stay a little longer in the Eternal City with our post-cruise programme*.
