In the morning we arrive in Crete, the southernmost of the Greek Isles. Enjoy free time in the town of Heraklion or join the excursion to visit the Palace of Knossos, discovered in 1900 by Sir Arthur Evans. This was the kingdom of King Minos, the site of the legendary Minotaur, later slain by Theseus, and you can see the underground corridors of the Labyrinth. Return to the ship and sail for Santorini at 11.30am.
At about 4pm we arrive at Santorini, one of the most breathtaking of the Greek islands. Enjoy free time in Fira or join the optional excursion to Oia. Driving along the road you will have the unique opportunity to admire the panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and the neighbouring islands. A unique sight is the various layers of lava that can be seen on the face of the rock each layer being another phase of the activity of the volcano. Built on the Caldera rim. Oia Village is an excellent example of Cycladic architecture. We explore the village walking along the cobble stone streets and the white washed houses with blue shutters where one gets the impression that they are a beautiful travel poster. Return to the port and take a tender boat back to the ship. At 9pm our ship begins sailing back to Piraeus.
