The Mediterranean brims with classical antiquity

Uncover the culture, history and traditions of Greece and her idyllic islands.

The splendour of classical antiquity can be seen throughout the Mediterranean, as you’ll discover for yourself on this cruise which reveals some of history’s best sites. You’ll see Phoenician and Roman remains, a palatial Moorish fortress and masses of Renaissance and baroque architecture in Málaga. Follow in the footsteps of the Knights of St John in Malta before uncovering the ancient myths and legends of Greece and its charming islands, including Karpathos, holy Patmos and Lesbos.

A visit to Crete’s Palace of Knossos brings you closer to the story of King Minos and the Minotaur. While in Piraeus perhaps learn more about the Greek gods on a tour of Delphi where temples were built to house the statues and offerings to the God of the Sun. An overnight stay in Piraeus also gives you the opportunity to spend an evening in Athens, where the iconic Acropolis will look magnificent lit up by floodlights.

Your time aboard Spirit of Adventure will be just as exciting as your days spent ashore with a variety of on-board activities, selected to enhance your cultural experience of Greece and the ancient world.
