Greece is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world today, with more than 200 inhabited islands, a plethora of rich historic sites, picturesque beaches and monumental mountain ranges. Located at the intersection of Europe, Asia and Africa, Greece sits on the southern tip of the Balkan Peninsula, sharing land borders with Albania, North Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey.
Boasting the longest coastline in the Mediterranean Basin and the 11th longest coastline in the world at 13,676km, mainland Greece is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, the Cretan Sea, the Ionian Sea and the Aegean Sea – the last of which can be explored via an Aegean cruise to some impressive destinations in Greece, including Mykonos, Kusadasi, Patmos, Rhodes, Crete, and Santorini, among others.
Aboard the Aegean cruise, you can experience the beauty of Greece on a journey like no other. Exploring Greece via the Aegean Sea is a classic experience of discovery for those encountering Greece’s beauty for the first time: cruise along endless blue waters seeing swaying windmills and striking cliffs and greet legendary ancient cities at every port.
One noteworthy journey is the one to Santorini, so don’t forget to take in the picturesque landscapes, sunsets and crystal blue waters in between photographs while you’re there. While in the capital of Santorini, Fira, bask in the panoramic views of the island’s dormant volcano and soak up the magnificent sunsets as you go on an adventurous hunt for the mythical lost city of Atlantis. Furthermore, in just a mere 11km away, find an oasis of beauty and calm amidst the traditional whitewashed houses and history-rich blue-domed churches in the village of Oia.
