Athens, Greece gay cruise

Day 1 - Athens, Greece
Athens is the seat of democracy, site of the Acropolis, and home to world-class museums. You will be enchanted by the rocky plateau presided by its monuments listed as UNESCO World Heritage. In the city below, you can visit some of the liveliest districts in Athens: Plaka, with its maze of colorful streets, and where, in the evenings the drifting aroma of moussaka and garlic prawns will tickle your taste buds. The National Archaeological Museum and the Cycladic Art Museum are also some of the city’s key attractions and allow visitors to discover Athens’ cultural past.

 

Spetses, Greece gay cruise

Day 2 - Spetses, Greece
Pearl of the Saronic Islands, chic and elegant Spetses, the “island of jasmin” is one of the popular holiday destinations for Athenian high society. The elite and lovers of sailing come together in the summer or during a long weekend to make the most of this charming and lively little port and its pristine environment.
There are no motorized vehicles on the island, one can only travel around Spetses on foot, by carriage or by bike. The lavish Poseidonion, the oldest luxury hotel in Greece, built in 1914 on the model of the Carlton or the Negresco, and the magnificent homes of the shipowners, dating from the 18th century, are testimony to the incredible destiny of this tiny island.

 

Mykonos, Greece gay cruise

Day 3 - Mykonos, Greece
Enjoy a sunrise sail into white and blue Mykonos. Explore Delos, the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. An iconic gay travel mecca, Mykonos has long been a favorite for the rich and famous. This magical island has it all: beautiful people, vibrant nightlife, world-class dining, and pristine beaches. Best of all, we’ll be spending the night, so you have plenty of time to enjoy everything Mykonos has to offer!

 

Santorini gay cruise

Day 4 - Santorini, Greece
Sailing in the waters of Santorini caldera is breathtaking. The siren call of Santorini captivates by blue-domed churches and Minoan ruins at Akrotiri. From the volcanic beaches to the stepped streets leading up to constellation-filled skies, the island here is pure magic. The colorful whites, greys, reds of the volcanic rocks, the blue of the Aegean Sea, and the immaculate perched villages form a unique and marvelous spectacle. While some believe that Santorini is the remnant of the lost civilization of Atlantis, we simply call it paradise.

 

Paros, Greece gay cruise

Day 5 - Paros, Greece
The island of Paros is a large, hilly, and fertile island, famous for its white marble. Along the quays of Parikia, its main town, you’ll see Byzantine churches and neoclassical buildings. To make the most of the turquoise waters, you can stopover in Naoussa. This little fishing port is bounded by a very beautiful cove.

 

Skopelos, Greece gay cruise

Day 6 - Skopelos, Greece
Though famed for its starring role in the 2008 film Mamma Mia!, Skopelos has managed to hang on to its low-key charm. Pine forests, olive grows, rippling vineyards, and orchards of plums and almonds carpet this handsome island. Its sheltered southeast coast harbors a string of sand-and-pebble beaches, while the Northwest coast’s high jagged cliffs are exposed to the elements. We highly recommend an ABBA playlist to accompany you on this charming island.

 

Limnos, Greece gay cruise

Day 7 - Limnos, Greece
Limnos is the perfect Greek Island for a swim stop on the way to Istanbul! A volcanic island located near the Dardanelles Strait, Limnos was venerated during Antiquity. Legend has it that Hephaestus, the god of fire, had his forge here.
Now one of Greece’s major seaside resorts, Limnos offers its visitors many superb sandy beaches. It is also home to several archaeological sites, such as the towers of Kastro, an ancient acropolis fortified by the Venetians, or the neolithic site of Poliochni and the city of Hephaestia. Renowned for its olives, fruits, wheat and honey, and for the authenticity of its inhabitants, Limnos is also known for the quality of its restaurants, ideal for tasting typical Greek dishes.

 

Med gay cruise

Day 7 - Sailing the Dardanelles
The Dardanelles Strait is an emblematic, 61 km-long waterway connecting the Aegean Sea with the Sea of Marmara. It is strategic for controlling passage between the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. Like the Bosporus, or Strait of Istanbul, it separates Europe from Asia. A surface current flows along it, while a more saline undercurrent flows in the opposite direction. Along the strait, you will be able to admire hilly landscapes and arid lowlands brightened by fields and groves of olive trees.

 

Istanbul, Turkey gay cruise

Day 8 - Istanbul, Turkey
Located on the Bosphorus, Istanbul is one of the most beautiful of all Turkish cities. Named Byzantium when founded by the Greeks, and then Constantinople under the Roman Empire, this city is steeped in history and, for this reason, is a listed UNESCO World Heritage site. Located on Sultanahmet hill, the great Blue Mosque, the mysterious Hagia Sophia, and the vast Topkapi palace and its countless mosaics, dominate the Marmara Sea. In the Beyazit district, the Grand Bazaar allows to the discovery of elegant, covered passages. A little further away, the delicate aroma of loukoum and spices will draw the visitors’ attention at the Egyptian Bazaar.
