With Athens as the departure point, set off for an escapade aboard Le Lyrial to discover four islands that are among the most beautiful in Greece.
Patmos will be the first port of call for this voyage. Known as the “Jerusalem of the Aegean Sea”, this island, where Saint John is said to have written the Apocalypse, offers unique landscapes combining white sandy beaches and rocky coves.
Situated in the midst of the Cyclades archipelago, Paros is renowned for its white marble, whose use dates back to Antiquity. Covered with olive groves and vines, Paros will welcome you in a setting of charming beaches and white-clad villages.
You will also discover Mykonos. This is the ‘Queen of the Cyclades’, an island of white windmills, sinuous lanes and whitewashed buildings, with a small port where fishing boats and dinghies lazily bob at the foot of the terraces. Mykonos cannot fail to charm you.
Le Lyrial will then make a detour via the island of Hydra, famous for its incomparable light and the calm of its small streets on which all motorised traffic is banned.
Your cruise will end in Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis and its monuments that form the most extraordinary architectural and artistic collection bequeathed by Ancient Greece to the rest of the world.
