On a summer voyages aboard the incomparable Sea Cloud, discover important ancient marvels of myth and antiquity in the Cyclades and the Peloponnese. Explore the enchanting Greek isles as your privately chartered vessel slips into small harbors and shallow bays to visit sites rich with mythological and historical resonances, including Mycenae and Epidaurus.
From Piraeus, cross the Aegean to call at Delos, mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Roam its extensive ruins, then refresh with an espresso or apéritif on nearby Mykonos. Step ashore on Naxos for a tour of its excellent antiquities museum, and on the lesser-visited Peloponnese, stroll the narrow streets of Monemvasia, "Greece's Gibraltar." In Mycenae, legendary city of Agamemnon, view treasures unearthed by Heinrich Schliemann. Call at Hydra, a haven for artists and writers, before returning to the mainland.
The famed Sea Cloud has been setting the standard for luxury sailing since 1931. Her intimate size makes her the ideal ship for this splendid itinerary. Weather permitting, there may be an opportunity to swim in the azure waters of the Aegean.
