There are many reasons to visit . For starters it has a remarkable, rich ancient history, striking architecture, distinct culture, and — for those sun-worshipers — top-quality beaches. If you’re an antsy traveler who is indecisive about which part of Greece to visit, consider spending your vacation coasting through the Aegean Sea aboard a luxurious mega-yacht.
Our editors discovered a 7-night late October sailing aboard Variety Cruises’ Harmony G with an incredible itinerary featuring ten unique ports of call, and an even more spectacular price tag.
The ultra-sleek, modern yacht sets sail from Athens Marina Zeas on October 30, and visits Kinisia on the island of Kea. Here, passengers can make use of the many hiking trails or go for a dip in one of the secluded coves.
The next port of call for the intimate vessel is Santorini, home to marvelous archeological sites, a volcano, and breathtaking buildings constructed in the rugged mountainside overlooking the Aegean Sea. After, Harmony G docks in Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, for two days.
On the sixth day, the yacht cruises to Monemvasia and Nafplion, two ports whose charming architecture is unparallel. Before returning to Athens, passengers can enjoy the trendy shops, restaurants, and nightspots in Spetses.
The cost of this cruise won’t empty your bank account because Variety Cruises is now offering a special $750 discount to their already low rates for this October sailing — that’s as much as a 40 percent reduction. And for an added value, Variety Cruises is giving its passengers a complimentary 2-night stay at the deluxe Ledra Marriot Hotel, as well as a free half-day city tour of Athens. Rates start at just $1,082 for a Category C cabin (after discount).
All quotes are per person and based on double occupancy. Rates cover accommodations, meals and entertainment on the ship. Fees and taxes, as well as shore excursions, personal expenses, alcoholic beverages, and tips are additional.
The yacht will sometimes sail to two ports in one day, so you won't have a lot of time for exploring.
