11 Night Cruise sailing from Venice to Athens aboard Silver Shadow.

Say ciao to the ethereal city of Venice and kalimera to the beautiful Greek Islands. Between tastings of tzatziki and souvlaki, paddle in the limpid seas of the Aegean, while travelling back in time as you wander the old towns of beautiful Crete, Rhodes, Mykonos and Kusadasi. Kotor, with its labyrinthine streets and well-preserved architecture, gives you another World Heritage site to cross off your list.

Highlights of this cruise:

Athens, (Piraeus)Greece
It’s no wonder that all roads lead to the fascinating and maddening metropolis of Athens. Lift your eyes 200 feet above the city to the Parthenon, its honey-color marble columns rising from a massive limestone base, and you behold architectural perfection that has not been surpassed in 2,500 years. But, today, this shrine of classical form dominates a 21st-century boomtown. To experience Athens—Athína in Greek—fully is to understand the essence of Greece: ancient monuments surviving in a sea of cement, startling beauty amid the squalor, tradition juxtaposed with modernity.

Mykonos, Greece
Although the fishing boats still go out in good weather, Mykonos largely makes its living from tourism these days. The summer crowds have turned one of the poorest islands in Greece into one of the richest. Old Mykonians complain that their young, who have inherited stores where their grandfathers once sold eggs or wine, get so much rent that they have lost ambition, and in summer sit around pool bars at night with their friends, and hang out in Athens in winter when island life is less scintillating.

Chania,(Crete),Greece
The second-largest city in Crete and capital of the Homonym Prefecture, Chania is located in Minoan Kidonia at the end of the Homonym Gulf between the Akrotiri and Onicha peninsulas. Chania City is divided into two parts; the Old Town, which is comprised of several connected districts built around the old Venetian Harbour, and New Town, a larger, more modern city whose centre is situated next to, and south of, the Old Town.

Kusadasi, Turkey
Kuşadası long ago lost its local charm to invasive, sterile buildings and overpopulation, and these days it’s often overrun with cruise ship passengers disembarking to make a mad dash to Ephesus. So, what was a small fishing village up until the 1970s is now a sprawling, hyperactive town packed with curio shops and a year-round population of around 65,000, rising to about half a million in season with the influx of tourists and Turks with vacation homes.

Rhodes, Greece
Early travelers described Rhodes as a town of two parts: a castle or high town (Collachium) and a lower city. Today Rhodes town—sometimes referred to as Ródos town—is still a city of two parts: the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site that incorporates the high town and lower city, and the modern metropolis, or New Town, spreading away from the walls that encircle the Old Town.

Limassol, Cyprus
A major commercial port, cruise ship port of call, and wine-making center on the south coast, Limassol, 75 km (47 miles) from Nicosia, is a bustling, cosmopolitan town, with some of the liveliest nightlife on the island. Luxury hotels, apartments, and guesthouses stretch along 12 km (7 miles) of seafront, with the most luxurious ones just to the north of town.

Haifa,(Tel Aviv, Nazareth),Israel
Spilling down from the pine-covered heights of Mt. Carmel, Haifa is a city with a vertiginous setting that has led to comparisons with San Francisco. The most striking landmark on the mountainside is the gleaming golden dome of the Baha’i Shrine, set amid utterly beautiful garden terraces. The city is the world center for the Baha’i faith, and its members provide informative walking tours of the flower-edged 100-acre spot, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the top of the hill you’ll find some small but interesting museums, the larger hotels, and two major universities.

Ashdod,(Jerusalem),Israel
Busy Ashdod is not only one of Israel’s fastest-growing cities, it’s also the country’s largest port. Perched on the Mediterranean, it processes more than 60% of the goods imported into Israel. Home to many ancient peoples over the centuries, Ashdod today is a modern, planned city. It’s also a convenient jumping-off point for exploring several of Israel’s most interesting cities, including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Bethlehem.
