Explore the jewels of Mediterranean’s large islands: Sicily, Sardinia, and the Balearics. Set sail aboard Le Lyrial for an 8-day cruise between Athens and Barcelona, discovering unmissable sites.
After crossing the narrow Corinth Canal, your ship will call at Idea, not far from the famous site of Delphi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Clinging to the slopes of Mount Parnassus, the ruins dominate the valley and still seem to resound to the noise of the footsteps of past pilgrims. Then, another treasure of Ancient Greece awaits you from the port of call in Katakolo: Olympia, its temples, altars, theatres and marble statues…
Le Lyrial will then take you towards Sicily. You will not fail to admire the ancient theatre of Taormina, remarkable for its acoustics and its state of preservation. As for Palermo, the capital nestling in the heart of a wide bay, it has preserved the traces of all the cultures that have met there.
After a port of call in Cagliari in Sardinia, you head for Spain, to discover Minorca, the most preserved island of the Balearic archipelago.
Your cruise will end in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia with a rich architectural heritage and inimitable atmosphere.
