Port Name Description
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.
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.
Paros is an island of Greece in the central Aegean Cyclades group. With the popularity and sometimes overcrowding at Santorini and Mykonos, Paros offers a quitter, unspoiled Cyclades option. Historically, Paros was once known for its fine white marble, which gave rise to the term "Parian" to describe marble or china of similar qualities. Some consider Paros the most beautiful in this island group – you be the judge! It has beautiful beaches and charming villages. Most visitors make an effort to see the famous Church of Ekatontapyliani (Our lady of a Hundred Doors). This church is the holy place of Paros and is linked to the history and myths of Byzantium. Tradition and history state that the church began life in the reign of Constantine the Great (280 - 337 A.D.) or Justinian (527 - 565). After its restoration in 1959, this church, the brightest jewel in the crown of Orthodoxy in the Aegean, became the third most important Christian building in Greece, after the Panayia Akheiropoietos and St. Demetrios in Thessaloniki.
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.
Kepez is a seaside town in the Canakkale Province in Turkey. From Kepez SeaDream offers a unique Land Adventure to the ruins of the ancient city of Troy (Unesco Heritage Site). The movie starring Brad Pit although filmed in Malta has the actual Trojan Horse in Canakkale. Another “don’t miss” option would be to visit perhaps the most moving site in all of Turkey: Anzac Cove and the World War I battlefields of Gallipoli. We recommend that you make time and visit this hauntingly beautiful area where for more than nine months (1915-16) Allied and Turkish troops faced one another in one of the world's most tragic battles to gain control of this most important waterway " the Dardanelles.

We recommend that you make time and visit this hauntingly beautiful area where for more than nine months (1915-16) Allied and Turkish troops faced one another in one of the world's most tragic battles to gain control of this most important waterway the Dardanelles. In order to enhance your visit and understanding of the events we are bringing in some of the most knowledgeable guides all the way from Istanbul. Start your visit with anticipation as you cross from our pier on the Asian side to the European side of the Dardanelles by local ferry and come ashore where the ill-fated Allied landing was supposed to have been made. To honor the 500,000 soldiers who lost their lives at Gelibolu (Gallipoli), the peninsula was turned into the Gelibolu Historic National Park. The area includes memorial monuments, the Ariburnu Cliffs and Tuz Lake. The natural beauty of the green hills, sandy beaches and blue waters provides a fitting resting place to those who bravely fought and died in this historic battle of World War I. One of our favorite visits is to Chunuk Bair where you enjoy a special moment as you not only soak in the beautiful views of the peninsula but also look into the actual trenches where the soldiers watched out over the cliffs. Just close your eyes and try to image... Your fist visit will be the Ari Burnu Cemetery and North Beach on the Anzac Cove, the landing place of Australian & New Zealand army crops. Continue with a drive up to the Chunuk Bair, where you will visit the Lone Pine Australian Memorial and view the Johnston's Jolly Cemetery on route.

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.

Vrana Olive Press Museum, Village of Plomari & Ouzo Tasting

Mytilini Island (Lesvos) is famous for two products: olive oil and ouzo. Taking this SeaDream Land Adventure you will have the opportunity to learn some secrets for both these products by visiting the Olive Press Museum located in beautiful Papados village and the well-known Barbayiannis ouzo distillery at the seaside village of Plomari. You depart from the port with your motor coach and have a scenic drive through Mytilini town where you will admire the fine architecture of many old mansions, you head south following the beautiful coastline of the Gulf of Gera. Your first stop will be the village of Papados, one of the most important villages in Mytilini, where you will visit the Vrana Old Olive Press Museum which was one of the first steam-powered factories in the Aegean. It was built in 1887 by Nikolaos Vranas who was the grandfather of the famous Greek poet Odysseas Elytis and it was in operation till the 1970s. Constructed by stone and marble, Vrana Oil Press is an impressive building with special architecture. Apart from the rooms, the machinery has also been restored and visitors can see among them a diesel machine TANGYE, constructed in Birmingham UK, one of the world’s seven of this kind. Also, paintings by famous Greek artists inspired by olive trees and olive oil are exhibited in this Industrial Museum. Continuing on we reach the beautiful coastal village of Plomari, the center of the cultural and economic activity of the island for many decades, famous today for its distilleries which provide Lesvos with perhaps the best ouzo in Greece. The architecture of the town is pretty amazing with giant old mansions, decaying factories and olive presses. In the beach “suburb” of Plomari, Agios Isidoros, you will visit the ouzo-distillery of Barbayiannis. The distillery has a museum section and a production section. You will visit both sections of the distillery and experience the methods of “creating” real ouzo, now and then. You will also have the chance to taste the Barbayiannis ouzo, probably the best ouzo in the world. Following your visit to the distillery, you will re-board your coaches to return to Mytilini port and your SeaDream yacht.

Paros Panorama

You board your air-conditioned coach for a drive to the beautiful picturesque fishing village of Naoussa which is located in a huge bay on the northern part of Paros, 10 kilometres east from the capital, Parikia. Naoussa is considered to be one of the prettiest villages in the Cyclades and, despite the development of tourism, this lovely village has managed to keep its authenticity, its character and its charm, with its whitewashed and flowered little houses and its tiny whitewashed churches and chapels, surrounded by labyrinth-like narrow, stone-paved streets. To continue your land adventure, you will board your coach and while having a panoramic overview of the island on the way, you will proceed to the traditional village of Lefkes, a beautiful village built in an amphitheatrical style, up the main mountain with wonderful vistas all around. The town hall is especially nice being built with the famous Marble of Paros. Your next stop will be Parikia town, the capital of the island where you will visit the famous Church of Ekatontapyliani (Our lady of a Hundred Doors).

Pythagorion, Samos

Ancient Samos & Wine Tasting (SAM-1)

Sámos can offer you a lot in only three hours. There is no need to be away for long from your SeaDream yacht, you get a taste (literally) of what lovely Sámos has to offer. Sign up soon, the wine is waiting. Depart the port for a scenic drive through the verdant island of Sámos heading north and passing by lovely villages and attractive bays. Your first stop will be the attractive and surprisingly large town of Vathí, the capital of the island. A visit to a local winery will be made during which, after the obligatory history lesson of winemaking on Sámos, its different vines and varieties, you get to sample the wines accompanied by some Greek snacks. Sámos produces a famous sweet wine, which is used exclusively by the Catholic Church as communion wine. Switching over to the cultural content of your adventure, continue with a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Sámos, located in the heart of Vathí. If you wish, you can forgo the visit and walk around Vathí on your own – but, we recommend that you do not skip this visit as the museum is regarded as one of the most interesting museums in Greece and certainly worth the 45-minutes we have allowed for it. Then, you are on your own, sort of, as we have allowed 45 minutes for you to spend some time in beautiful Vathí with its many shops and picturesque cafés; hopefully you have brought some money. Then, it’s back to your SeaDream yacht, a brief 30-minutes’ drive to the south. Will we see you in Vathí?
