Port Name Description
Athens is the capital as well as the largest city in Greece. It is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning around 3,400 years. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by a number of ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. SeaDream will embark guests from the port of Piraeus. Should you desire a private arrangement, transfer, or other local service, please see the Land Adventures tab for our destination specialists information.
Mykonos is one of the most visited Greek Islands. It is part of the Cyclades group and lies between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 square kilometres (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 metres (1,119 feet) at its highest point. Mykonos is so incredibly beautiful, it is not surprising that it has become one of the most desired destinations in the world. When you also add the cosmopolitan lifestyle, the sophisticated nightlife and the historic treasures of the nearby Unesco Awarded Delos you’ll have the recipe for an unforgettable holiday. SeaDream generally anchors just of the famous windmills and tenders directly to the old town. Guests have a few organized options including the Sacred Island of Delos, others may simply want to explore the island’s incredible beaches, boutiques, clubs and churches independently.
The Old City of Rhodes has been delegated a World Heritage Site. Some speculate that after the Acropolis of Athens and the Volcano of Santorini, Rhodes is one of the most impressive places in Greece. Wandering through the medieval city, especially on a warm evening, is one of life's treasures. The old city is closed to most traffic. The main streets and thoroughfares are full of shops and restaurants but the back streets are mostly residences. The massive walls of the city were rebuilt by the European order of Knights Hospitaller after the Turkish siege of 1480. The walls are 12 meters thick and the moat more than 21 meters wide. The length of the walls is about three miles and each section was defended by one of the Langues or tongues which corresponded to the languages spoken where the particular group of knights came from. SeaDream will dock close to the entrance of the walled city. We recommend you explore the old town and if you haven’t already done so, visit the Lindos Acropolis.
Kusadasi is a resort town on Turkey's Aegean coast and the center of the seaside district of the same name in Aydin Province. Some visitors simply want to go shopping at the grand bazaar and see a carpet demonstration. Hopefully you have practiced your negotiating skills for these authentic copies, original reproductions as well as the real deal. Others will make time to see the Wonders of Ephesus. This comprehensive SeaDream Land Adventure includes a guided tour of the stunning archaeological site of Ephesus including the recently excavated Terrace Houses, but also adds a visit to the House of the Virgin Mary. For any traveler arriving to this region in Italy it simply can’t be missed!
Mytilene is built on the southeast edge of the island of Lesvos. It is also the seat of a metropolitan bishop of the Orthodox church. Mytilini is not a town. It's a city. But it is an amazing little city full of life and surprises and if you are someone with a long history in Greece it may actually remind you of Athens or Piraeus in the fifties. The Island is famous for two products: olive oil and ouzo. Guests can take advantage of these items by participating in the Vrana Olive Press Museum, Village of Plomari & Ouzo Tasting land adventure.
Istanbul historically known as Constantinople is the largest city in Turkey and 5th largest city proper in the world with a population of over 14 million, also making it the second largest metropolitan area in Europe by population. Istanbul was selected as a European Capital of Culture for 2010. Historic areas of the city were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985. Istanbul is a transcontinental city, straddling the Bosporus, one of the world's busiest waterways in northwestern Turkey. It is situated between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Its commercial and historical center lies in Europe, while a third of its population lives in Asia. SeaDream calls to this wonderful destination both as an embarkation point and a destination offering several land adventures. Please check the Land Adventures tab for all of the possibilities as well as embarkation and transfer information.

Kos / Cos is a Greek island and part of the Dodecanese group, next to the Gulf of Gökova. The island measures 40 by 8 kilometres (25 by 5 miles), and is a mere 4 km (2 miles) from the coast of Bodrum, Turkey, and the ancient region of Caria. It is the third largest in this group of islands and the second most popular after Rhodes. It is located between Kalymnos and Nysiros. The shores of Kos are caressed by long immaculate beaches, leading to its main industry being tourism.
The Dardanelles is a narrow strait in northwestern Turkey connecting the Sea of Marmara with the Aegean Sea. It is one of two extremely important Turkish Straits, along with its counterpart, the Bosporus. The strait is 61 kilometers (38 mi) long but only 1.2 to 6 kilometers (0.75 to 3.73 mi) wide, averaging 55 meters (180 ft.) deep. The current flows in both directions along the waterway, from the Sea of Marmara to the Aegean via a surface current and in the opposite direction via an undercurrent. This passageway separates Europe (the Gallipoli peninsula) from the mainland of Asia (Anatolia). The strait is an international waterway, and together with the Bosporus, the Dardanelles connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea.

SeaDream's View: Once the private residence of a wealthy expatriate Greek, the Hotel Grande Bretagne is an architectural landmark and the historic Grande dame of the city. It was recently lavishly restored and converted to a palace hotel. We at SeaDream think it is one of Europe's finest hotels. We absolutely love its convenient location - the best in Athens, and within walking distance from the fashionable Kolonaki Square with exclusive shopping, entertainment, restaurants and cafes. Also within walking distance are important museums and the historic and picturesque old quarter of Plaka with taverns, open-air coffee shops, flea market and souvenir shops. The hotel offers 321 rooms but we recommend at least a deluxe room or one of the only 22 Junior Suites; so book early and ask for one that offers splendid views of the Acropolis, Parliament and National Gardens. We also enjoy the outdoor roof top pool and highly recommend dinner in the GB Roof Garden Restaurant. Why? You'll never forget the view, the delicious food and the mix of local and international guests that fill the restaurant nightly. Reserve early and enjoy.

Visitors to UNESCO awarded Athens will delight in this opportunity to explore the heart of ancient Athens. Depart from the pier in your air-conditioned transportation and after a 30 minute drive you arrive at the new award winning Acropolis Museum. The museum was built in order to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, covering a large period of time, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. The museum opened its doors to public very recently in June 21, 2009. Nearly 4,000 objects statues including the Porch of the Caryatids that welcome visitors are exhibited over an area of 14,000 square meters. The collection of the New Acropolis Museum consists principally of sculptures, many of which originally decorated the monuments of the Acropolis. These works were created to be viewed in daylight, illuminated by subtle changes in light throughout the day. Extensive use of glass in the building’s design allows the integration of natural light into the galleries, thus ensuring similar exhibition conditions. Ambient natural light floods the top-floor Parthenon Gallery and is filtered through the gallery’s glass-floored atrium into the floors below. After the visit of the Museum you will have some free time to wander around the picturesque streets of Plaka, the old preserved district of Athens with numerous art & craft shops, restaurants and cafes. After your wanderings at the old district of Athens you will board your coach for your drive to the airport.

The Wonders of Ephesus & The House of the Virgin Mary

This comprehensive SeaDream Land Adventure includes a guided tour of the stunning archaelogical site of Ephesus including the recently excavated Terrace Houses, but also adds a visit to the House of the Virgin Mary. Three popes have visited this important shrine, which is a pilgrimage site for visitors from all over the world. The House of the Virgin Mary is located on Mt. Pagus, and said to be where the Virgin Mary spent her final days. The site itself was discovered in part through the visions of an invalid nun in Germany who had never been out of her homeland. A tree-lined path leads to the ancient dwelling, tastefully restored in 1951. The tiny stone cottage exudes a calm and serenity befitting its original occupant. Below the house is the Fountain of Our Lady, where a sacred spring feeds three fonts, each bestowing a unique blessing on the visitor. Those not wishing to visit this site will be offered tea close by. The site of Ephesus gained importance from ancient time due to its well-placed port and its religious significance, which the locals were not above exploiting. After the Emperor Augustus proclaimed Ephesus the capital of the Asian Province in 27 BC, the city became one of the most important in the extended Roman Empire. Most of the buildings you will see date from that era when Ephesus had nearly one quarter million inhabitants. Begin at the Magnesia Gate, where your expert guide will take you on a leisurely downhill walk through the marble streets of the city, pausing to describe the significance of the sites along the way. View the Gymnasium, Odeon, Fountain of Trajan, Temple of Hadrian, Upper Agora, Town Hall, a Byzantine house, Roman baths, and the surprisingly efficient public toilets. One of the most imposing sites at Ephesus is the Library of Celsus. Finely decorated with columns and sculptures, the library was erected in 135 BC by a son in homage to his father. A short walk away is another significant structure, the amphitheater, which is known for its excellent acoustics. This is where St. Paul preached to the Ephesians, imploring them to give up their worship of Artemis and embrace the Christian faith. A highlight of your day will be entry to a newly opened and recently excavated portion of the historic site. The so-called Terrace Houses can be seen on the slopes behind Ephesus opposite the Temple of Hadrian. Those on the upper slopes are reached via steps and situated on the slopes of Bulbul Mountain with the roof of one house forming the terrace of the one above it. These houses were inhabited by wealthy Ephesians and are finely decorated with mosaics and frescoes. According to the evidence of the excavations, they were built in the period of Augustus and continued to be inhabited until the 7th century AD.

Notes In order to avoid congestion, the sequence of sites visited may vary. Please bring sun protection and wear flat (!), comfortable walking shoes, as there are stairs and uneven surfaces throughout the archaeological site. All guests will be issued with a state of the art listening aid called a "whisper". This will allow you to hear your guide very clearly.

The Sacred Isle of Delos

This SeaDream adventure is an excellent opportunity to combine some exercise with learning and a scenic walk. You will love strolling across this uninhabited museum island with an informative local guide. We hope you decide to come along and explore the mythology of Greece. Not far from Mykonos lies UNESCO listed Delos, the island of light, the mythical birthplace of the God Apollo and the Goddess Artemis. Its name means “that which appears" and, according to mythology, the island appeared amid the waves so that Leto would have a place to give birth to Apollo and Artemis. Delos Island, an area of only five sq. km (almost 2 sq. miles), was once a very important religious, cultural and commercial centre. Today, the island is a piece of land covered with archaeological sites: fallen columns, sections of the famous mosaics which adorned the houses of the rich, a stadium, and tiers of seats from a theatre. Among these ruins, five marble lions in a row still stand. These were the guardians of the sacred lake, still gazing out to the east waiting for the sun to rise. Other interesting monuments, spread over a wide area, are: the Agora, the treasuries of the various cities, the Sanctuary of Apollo, the Theatre, the Sanctuary of the Foreign Gods and the Sacred Mt Cynthus. Leaving the sacred island of Delos you re-board your local caique for the 45-minute return to Mykonos town.

Notes This land adventure operates from Mykonos only if the yacht does not call at Delos on the same day. This visit includes a two-hour walk across uneven surfaces at the archaeological sites so please wear comfortable walking shoes. The departure time will be adjusted according to the departure time of the local boat schedule from Mykonos to Delos. There is very limited shade at the site so bring protection from the sun. There is a coffee kiosk on the island as well as restrooms near the pier on Delos. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity.

Mytilene, Lesvos

Pictures of Lesvos - Picasso, Matisse & Chagall

Get ready to be surprised! Everyone will find something to enjoy on this special SeaDream Land Adventure! Fine collections of rare books and paintings, charming hill-town villages, the very interesting Church of Virgin Mary and, a glass of good Greek ouzo. Don't miss out on this enjoyable outing lead by some excellent guides with passion. As you depart the pier, pass through Mytilene's old aristocratic neighborhood, near the landmark castle ruins, to admire the fine architecture of the old mansions. Leaving the big-city atmosphere behind, arrive in the beautiful suburb of Vareia, where you stop to visit two small but fascinating museums just down the street from each other. First is the Teriade Museum, located in the home of a Lesvos native who immigrated to Paris in the early 20th century to become a prominent art critic. His collection contains rare books and works by great 20th century painters such as Picasso, Matisse and Chagall. Teriade was also patron to the famous folk painter Theofilos Chatzimichael, whose former home you visit next. Four-rooms display 86 of his paintings commissioned by Teriade. Theofolis' work was mostly found on taverna walls, often as barter for food, so it's thanks to Teriade that you can enjoy these earthy depictions of local island life today. After visiting the museums, take a scenic drive to the village of Agiassos, lying on the pine and olive covered slopes of Mount Olympus. Considered one of the most beautiful hill-towns of Lesvos, the stone paved streets and traditional tile roofed stone houses are held in the embrace of dense forest. For many years Agiassos village was also known for its pottery, a tradition that is carried on today. Visit the Church of Virgin Mary, the village's dominant feature with all the traditional cafes and shops centered on it.

Rhodes Town

Exploring UNESCO Awarded Rhodes Old Town

The UNESCO listed Old Town of Rhodes (1988), behind its impressive walls and moats, is one of the most important medieval sites in Europe. The crusader Order of St John of Jerusalem occupied Rhodes from 1309 after being ejected from their stronghold at Acre in what is now Israel. They proceeded to transform the island capital into a fortified city able to withstand terrible Muslim sieges in 1444 and 1480 before finally falling in 1523 after a six-month siege carried out by Suleyman II, heading forces reportedly numbering 100,000 men. Your walking discovery will take you in to medieval Rhodes, walking the narrow cobblestone streets and visiting the most impressive Palace of the Grand Masters. Departing from the pier on foot with your locally licensed guide, you will walk the short distance to the city walls and pass through the Gate of Navarhou to the narrow, cobblestone streets within. The medieval city is located within walls that are 4 km long. The most imposing building of medieval Rhodes, the Palace of the Grand Masters, dominates the end of the Street of the Knights. Built in the 14th century, it will astonish you with its unique architecture and an unrivalled patina of time. Walking down the Street of the Knights and passing by numerous colorful shops, we can admire the 15th-century Hospital of the Knights, which now houses the Archaeological Museum. At the end of the walking adventure you may choose to browse on your own a little longer before returning to the yacht on foot.

The Ancient Lindos Acropolis

In ancient times, Lindos was the main center on Rhodes. Homer tells us that it was established by the Dorians in the 12th century BC and that the city was large and powerful enough to send nine ships to the Trojan War. Towering above the village of Lindos is the ancient Acropolis. A 13th century Crusader fortress now crowns the hill, but within its walls lie archaeological sites that date back to the 6th century BC. On your 35-mile drive to Lindos, you will pass villages, vineyards and olive groves while your guide introduces you to the history and culture of the island. On arrival at Lindos you will be escorted through the village of Lindos and up to the ancient Acropolis of Lindos, entering through the castle gates. The climb to the Acropolis is steep but you will be rewarded with impressive views of the village, the sea and the small fishing harbor of Psarto, where legend has it St. Paul landed to bring Christianity to the region. The remnants of the Temple of the Lindian Athena, enclosed within the walls of the castle are said to have been built by the tyrant Cleobulos in the 6th century BC and are remarkably well preserved with colonnades flanking both sides of the temple. On your return to the village you will have time to explore on your own before boarding the coach for our return to Rhodes Town.
