Day 1 - Istanbul (Turkey) 
Embarkation from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

4:00 pm

6:00 pm

Day 2 - Limnos (Greece) 
A placid sentry keeping watch over the Dardanelles Straits, Limnos ccupies a strategic position at a junction of routes criss-crossing the Aegean Sea. Peaceful and serene, the island lies low with wide open spaces and a coastline untouched by modern tourism. Legend has it that this is where Vulcan the God of Fire lived, so do not be surprised to find works of art forged out of metal, a craft handed down through the ages to today.

7:00 pm

Day 3 - Paros (Greece) 
Often compared to Mykonos, Paros owes its reputation to the magnificent white marble which was used to produce some of the world’s most famous art works, including the Venus de Milo. In the heart of the olive and vineyard covered valleys lies the startlingly white village of Paros, with its windy streets aflame with geraniums and jasmine.

Day 4 - Siros (Greece) 
Syros is a cosmopolitan island with a rich history and has known rich times as is evident everywhere on the island. Today Syros is the administrative centre of all the Cyclades. Excavations have brought to light different objects, many graves, ceramic vessels, statuettes, skeletons and ancient ruins dating from the Bronze Age, proving that the island has been inhabited since this period.

7:30 am

6:00 pm

Day 5 -Bodrum (Turkey) 
Bodrum, the white town where Herodotus was born, was built to replace the ancient city of Halicarnassus at the beginning of the first millennium BC. Today it offers visitors a sinuous coastline of wonderful beaches and picturesque islands. Proudly standing on a rocky promontory in the heart of the bay, the 15th century Castle of St Peter was built by Knights of the Order of Hospitallers of St John, a monastic military order and ancestors of the Knights of Malta.

8:00 am

11:00 pm

Day 6 - Symi (Greece) 
The perfectly formed harbour of Symi island, such a beautiful picture-postcard Venetian village, has a true romantic charm: between beautiful bays and pebbled beaches.

8:00 am

8:00 pm

Day 7 - Patmos (Greece) 
Known as the "Jerusalem of the Aegean", Patmos is a holy island for Christians and is where Saint John drafted the Apocalypse. An impressive silhouette of the crenellated walls of an 11th century monastery stands out against the hills in the centre of an island which has retained its traditional architecture.
