Sail the Aegean Sea with PONANT and set off to discover Greece and its famous islands aboard Le Bougainville for an 8-day Mediterranean cruise.

From Athens, you will discover the charming town of Nafplion, the departure point for visiting the famous Epidaurus Theatre and the Mycenae site, listed as World Heritage by UNESCO.

You will discover Delos, a minuscule island in the Cyclades archipelago. According to mythology, Apollo was born here. Like an open-air museum, Delos offers unique testimony of the civilisations that followed one another in the Aegean world.

Next comes Mykonos, with beaches and windmills, and Alefkandra, a district that is typical of the island, with houses built right on the water's edge.

Your ship will take you to Patmos, also known as the 'Jerusalem of the Aegean Sea', this divine island where Saint John is said to have received his visions features unique landscapes that blend long white beaches with rocky coves.

In Rhodes, you will fall under the charm of the Gothic architecture in the medieval city, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Santorini,?one of the pearls of the Cyclades Islands, then awaits, unfurling the grandiose crater of its caldera. 

Following a stop on the island of Patmos, Le Bougainville will leave Greece to reach Kusadasi in Turkey. An old fishing village with history going back 5,000 years, not far from the Ephesus site, the town is now one of the country's most famous seaside resorts.

Your cruise will end in Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis and its monuments that form the most extraordinary architectural and artistic collection bequeathed by Ancient Greece to the rest of the world.
