Med Cruise to Greek Islands

 Thira Port.

I have always dreamt of cruising the Mediterranean Sea; basking under the sun, enjoying the deep blue water and embracing the Greek islands. That would be a perfect holiday for me.

Last year I have gotten an opportunity to visit Greece and embarked on a mini adventure to 2 of world’s famous Greek islands, Santorini & Mykonos. The journey starts from Athinios Port in Santorini to Mykonos and then back to Athens.

Most Med Cruises cover many Aegean and Ionian islands, where one will experience breathtaking sceneries and be overwhelmed by Greek mythology and culture.

Santorini’s caldera was formed approximately 3,500 years ago due to a volcanic eruption which molded this beautiful island and its unique architecture, this also led to the famous myth – the Lost City of Atlantis. One place not to be missed in Santorini is Oia, which is voted to be the best place in the world to view sunset. It is renowned for its white churches with blue domes setting against deep blue Aegean Sea and perfected it with clear bright blue sky.

Most cruises take you to the island of white washed cube houses and narrow cobble stone alleyways; Mykonos. There are 3 key highlights for travelers and holiday makers alike; Petros the Pelican, a Mykonos mascot found in 1954. The Mykonos windmills, built by the Venetians in the 16th and is use to mill wheat. Last but not least the Little Venice; a place where you wind down as dusk sets in.

There are other Greek Islands and Islets that you can visit while you are there, among them are Cretes, Rhodes, Paros to name a few. If you wish to experience a Mediterranean holiday, you can check out Med Cruises for more info.
