A chance to see some proper classical Greek culture, the stuff that legends are made of, dating back over 4 millennia, with a few more hedonistic latter-day party places thrown in for good measure en route.
Calling at: Athens – Delos – Mykonos – Santorini - Rethymnon – Kythira – Monemvasia – Nafplion – Hydra – Athens
Your vessel: Harmony G is a modern mega yacht with 21 cabins and a complement of no more than 42 guests – you’ll quickly make friends. With sleek lines and tinted windows this is millionaire style cruising – rather like an elegant house party at sea. She’s small enough to moor up right alongside small island waterfronts so you quickly get to explore the places we visit. There is no swimming pool – when it’s time to cool off the Captain heaves-to in a secluded bay and we swim in the Aegean.

Day 1: Athens
Embark at Marina Zeas then welcome drinks as we pass the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion and make the small port of Korissa after dinner. Time to wander ashore, overnight cruise to Delos
Day 2: Delos – Mykonos
Delos, the legendary birthplace of Apollo, is one of the most significant religious sites in ancient Greece. Optional excursion here before cruising to the bright lights of chic and cosmopolitan Mykonos.
Day 3: Santorini
Midday arrival in Santorini with the chance to see the excavations at Akrotiri (the Greek Pompeii). The sunsets here are equally legendary – just what sundowner drinks demand.
Day 4: Rethymnon, Crete
Wake up feeling bullish because today we visit Knossos, the fabled home of the Minotaur. The site and ruins are wonderful and a ‘must see’. Late departure with dinner on board and overnight at sea.
Day 5: Kythira
Morning arrival in Kythira, home of Aphrodite the Greek Goddess of love. The castle above the capital, Chora Kythira, is an iconic masterpiece of medieval Venetian period architecture.
Day 6: Monemvasia And Nafplion
Another day in medieval Greece at the wonderful fortified town of Monemvasia – quite simply wander and wonder. This afternoon we sail to Nafplion where we overnight.
Day 7: Hydra – Athens
There is an optional visit to Mycenae, famed city of Agamemnon. This afternoon we visit Hydra, and island much loved by artists and Leonard Cohen. Athens tonight for our farewell dinner.
Day 8: Athens
