Discover the incredible ancient wonders of the Greek Isles while cruising from Istanbul to Athens aboard the graceful Riviera, Oceania Cruises’ newest ship. Depart Istanbul and sail to the third-largest port in Greece, Volos, edging the sapphire-blue waters of the Pagasitikos Gulf and featuring lovely neoclassical architecture. Next explore Turkey’s vibrant port city of Kusadasi, or witness the amazing ruins of Ephesus, a former Greek and Roman city that is now one of the best-preserved archaeological sites on the Mediterranean. Then visit the serene island of Patmos, where magnificent frescoes adorn the Monastery of St John, followed by Rhodes, renowned for its ancient Acropolis and former site of the legendary Colossus. Savor its picturesque fusion of medieval walls and archeological sites with sweeping white-sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters. Take in more lovely scenery on Crete, famed for its idyllic landscapes dotted with villages and windmills, and get a glimpse of the bygone Minoan civilization at the reconstructed Bronze-Age Palace of Knossos. Behold a stunning natural spectacle of volcano-carved landscapes and blue-domed, whitewashed villages on Santorini, and stroll a labyrinth of streets edged by classic Cycladic architecture in Mykonos, before your Aegean odyssey concludes in Athens.
