Greek Islands, Athens to Athens
Aegean Ocean Conference@Sea
11 – 19 October 2020
There is something for everyone in Greece and this unforgettable journey is a showstopper which also encompasses the magnificent transcontinental nation of Turkey! Whether it is the eons of history, the warm autumn weather and or the almost deserted beaches, you cannot help but love this wonderful area of the world, regardless if this is your first or hundredth visit!
If you’re new to cruising or have never cruised with Silversea before, you owe it to yourself to experience the extraordinary thrill of the truly luxurious and intimate cruise experience. Discover the sumptuous suites, personalised service, generous amenities, spacious public areas and all-inclusive lifestyle all provided by Silversea’s Silver Shadow Ship. The Silver Shadow is what it means to depart and arrive in style, travelling from one fascinating destination to another, awakening each day refreshed and ready to explore or indulge in a variety of leisurely onboard activities with unparalleled service and superlative comfort.
Your first day full day begins in one of the worlds oldest cities, Athens. You will wake up docked in Piraeus, the second largest passenger port in the world. Transferring to Athens before transferring to Athens. It is here you will notice that the major landmarks of the ancient Greek, Roman, and Byzantine periods are in close proximity to the city centre, where the legacy of Greece’s classical era remains. There are many ways to spend your first day - walk from the Acropolis to many of Athens historical sites, lift your eyes up towards the marble Parthenon, or visit the National Archaeological Museum where the vast numbers of artifacts illustrate the many millennia of Greece’s archaeological locations.
Back on board the Silver Shadow, you will be transported to some of the most photographed islands in the world: Nafplion, Crete, Rhodes and Santorini. The beauty of these isles suggest that they were blessed by the gods themselves, and its easy to see why; deep blue water, white sandy beaches, old historic monuments with fortresses, castles, medieval buildings and narrow alleyways collaborating with modern reconstructions and breathtaking unobstructed natural views, only a few of the reasons why we spend a whole day on each island ready!
No tour of the Mediterranean would be complete without visiting 2 major ports within the magnificent coastline of Turkey: Marmaris and Kusadasi. Both are resort towns, with Kusadasi offering much in the way of historical ruins and archaeology. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Ephesus is only 20 minutes away and is nothing short of spectacular. It is here that the Temple of Artemis (one of the seven wonders of the ancient world) is located. You complete your Silversea experience back in Athens, where you can go and explore the birthplace of democracy at your leisure.
Our conference will be held on board SilverSea’s Silver Shadow and throughout various field activities.
