Travel the Aegean Sea aboard Pullmantur's Greek Islands Cruise
The Aegean Sea lies in the heart of the central Mediterranean area, between the southern and eastern coast of Greece and the west of Turkey. This is the Mediterranean region through which Pullmantur's Greek Islands cruise sails over 8 days and 7 nights, taking you to Piraeus and other, fabulous Greek ports, such as Mykonos, Chania and Santorini, among others.
This Pullmantur cruise begins and ends in Piraeus, a town that serves as the port of Athens, the capital of Greece. In addition to providing you with a perfect opportunity to see Athens's unique monuments, such as the Acropolis or the Agora, you will have the privilege of visiting the Monastery of the Holy Trinity in Chania or the Prehistoric Museum of Thira in Santorini.
Pullmantur's Greek Islands cruise enables you to visit and photograph some of the most outstanding landscapes in Greece, including the unique beaches of Stavros, Kalamaki or Balos, which are very close to Chania, or the Kamari and Perivolos beaches on the island of Santorini. We'll also visit the islands of Tinos and Delos, located a few kilometres from Mykonos.
