Cruise Description

10 Night Cruise sailing from Athens to Venice aboard Azamara Pursuit.

If the best of Greece could be bundled into just 10 days, this is it: a powerhouse line-up of ancient sites, friendly seaside tavernas and shops, and whitewashed villages—plus a luxurious day at sea in between island hopping for relaxing and recharging.

Rolling hills, sheltered coves, and beautiful beaches await you in Spetses, where cars are banned in the only town on the island. Mykonos charms with shops, bars, and restaurants tucked next to traditional whitewashed homes and churches. On Rhodes, ponder a knight’s life as you stroll the old medieval town.

Next it’s on to two Cretan ports: the quaint fishing village of Agios Nikolaos, and Chania with its beautiful Venetian harbor, Minoan ruins, and Byzantine churches, as well as the amazing Samaria Gorge.

The beautiful green island of Zakynthos, with its massive limestone cliffs and surreal turquoise waters, is truly spectacular. Igoumenitsa is a lush lively city where you can stroll the sandy stretches of Drepanos and Makrygiali or get in touch with its ancient past at the Monasteries of Meteora. Enjoy a late-night stay in Kotor, one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the Adriatic.

The voyage ends with a relaxing and luxurious day at sea—perfect for pampering at Sanctum Spa or hitting the gym after all that mouth-watering Greek food—before disembarking in Venice.

Highlights of this cruise:

Start your journey in Piraeus with an archaeological walk past landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, and of course, the Acropolis. Afterwards, head to the Central Market for a feast of fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese. Finally, check out a local taverna where you can rub elbows with the locals well into the wee hours of the night.

Rolling hills blanketed by pine forests, sheltered coves with sandy beaches, and crystal clear waters await you in Spetses.

Picture perfect is the best way to describe Mykonos. Idyllic in every way, from the brilliant blue water in its harbor to the rows of 16th-century Venetian windmills, Mykonos is a postcard come to life! Spend your days strolling delightful cobblestone streets and visiting artisan craft shops. And when the sun goes down, discover why locals refer to this hedonistic city as the Ibiza of Greece!

Venetian splendor gives Crete's second largest city a distinctly Italian air. Greek and Ottoman influences add to the city's unique history and culture—each era certainly worth exploring. Framed by a dramatic mountain backdrop, Chania is an exceptional destination for history buffs, with plenty of tavernas and cafés to recharge after a day of discovery.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kotor is filled with churches, shops, bars, restaurants, and hidden piazzas. (The latter are perfect for enjoying Montenegrin wines like the red Vranac or dry white Krstač.) The entire city is surrounded by stone, both in the form of imposing Mount Saint John and by towering ancient walls, creating a cozy feeling of protection when you walk the cobblestone streets.

Experience Venice, one of the most captivating—and romantic—cities in the world. Tour the city’s cobblestone streets and overarching bridges, or take to the water and explore the canals on a water taxi or gondola. As you make your way through the city, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to shop, sample delicious Veneto wines, or people watch in Piazza San Marco.
