Day by day itinerary
UK to Athens
Fly direct to Athens where you will be met and transferred by private vehicle to your hotel, Athenaeum Palace Hotel, for a two night stay on a B&B basis. Situated in the heart of Athens, the hotel is close to several noted attractions, around 200 m from Onassis Cultural Centre and around 1.2 km from Filopappos Hill. Athens has long since been the location of myth and muse, and its ancient heritage is still an incredible source of inspiration.
Check out after your included breakfast and take your private transfer to the port in Piraeus to embark Crystal Serenity. Or, if you have time, discover more of Athens.
Venture to Greece’s largest port city, Piraeus, as you make your way to the cradle of Western culture.
Of all the Cyclades Islands, Santorini is often considered the most dramatic with its dark landscape and iconic whitewashed buildings. The rich soil is ideal for grapes and local vines produce a cherished crop known for its special volcanic taste. Picturesque "Thíra," or Fira Town, laid out along the edge of a cliff at the rim of the now extinct caldera, exudes an easy charm.
Nestled snuggly at the foot of Mount Etna and this sea, this ancient port is a rich tapestry of landscapes and traditions. Indeed, here on the largest island in the Mediterranean – a cultural crossroads for centuries – you’ll find influences from Greek and Phoenician to French and Spanish, all reflected in rich cuisine and Baroque architecture. Be sure to explore its historic UNESCO-listed center, filled with towering palazzi and sweeping plazas.
Dramatic bluffs and craggy cliffs draped with flowing pink blossoms are the welcoming vision to this romantic port renowned for its serene way of life.
Venture through Civitavecchia, noted for its fine seafood and beautiful monuments. Then, travel to the Eternal City of Rome, with more than 2,500 years of history and ancient landmarks that will leave you with memories for a lifetime.
Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo made their marks of genius here. This cradle of the Renaissance owes its UNESCO status to the overwhelming influence the city and its museums, churches, architecture and artworks have had on Europe and, ultimately, the world. Vestiges of this enlightened period are everywhere today – at the Uffizi gallery, the Palazzos Pitta and Vecchio and throughout the city streets.
An ancient principality steeped in rich and colorful history, Monaco was bought from the Genoese in 1309 by the Grimaldis, who still rule as the world's oldest monarchy - presided over today by Prince Albert.
Charming and picturesque, this lively fishing port is a painting unto itself, with vibrantly hued boats in the harbor, rugged hills draped in greenery and the Cap Canaille headland crowned by a rocky plateau – the highest sea cliff in France. Discover Cassis’s renowned "calanques" – steep-walled inlets with turquoise waters and small beaches
Barcelona’s seaside beauty, sprawling beaches, eclectic architecture, world-class tapas and Tempranillo are all reasons to fall in love with the city of Gaudí. Indeed, the treasures here are many and diverse, captivating travelers and experts alike. In fact, nine important sites in the city, seven designed by the famed architect himself, have earned the acclaim of UNESCO.
