Amalfi Coast and Ancient Greece Itinerary

Day 1 - Athens (Greece)

Embark Le Lyrial in Athens, the capital of Greece. It is home to world famous sights including the Acropolis, a hilltop citadel, and the Parthenon temple.

Day 2 - Hydra - Corinth Canal

The tranquil island of Hydra has no wheeled vehicles or roads, just tiny cobbled lanes. Walk along steep donkey trails, visit one of the many monasteries, and soak in the atmosphere which attracts artists to make their homes here. Later, Le Lyrial cruises the magnificent Corinth Canal.

Day 3 - Fiskardo

Discover Fiskardo's colourful quayside houses on the beautiful island of Kefalonia. Relax at a café on the water’s edge and savour some local specialties like kreatopita, small meat pastries.

Day 4 - Taormina (Sicily)

The seaside town of Taormina is situated on Sicily's eastern coast and has spectacular heritage sites and stunning beaches. Perhaps visit the ruined Greco-Roman theatre or take an optional excursion to Mt Etna, Europe's largest active volcano which offers panoramic views across the Catania Gulf. Later, sail past the Stromboli volcano which has been active for thousands of years.

Day 5 - Lipari (Italy)

Lipari is the largest of the volcanic Aeolian Islands and lies just off the north coast of Sicily. Perhaps explore the cliff-top citadel or head inland to the magnificent Norman cathedral.

Day 6 - Amalfi

Amalfi's brightly-painted houses and atmospheric piazzas are dominated by an 11th-century Duomo and the impressive stairs which climb up to it. Later, sail past the 'Blue Island' of Capri, renowned for its natural beauty.

Day 7 - Bonifacio (Corsica)

Enjoy amazing views of soaring limestone cliffs on the approach to the beautiful Mediterranean town of Bonifacio. A mini-tram travels to the oldest part of Bonifacio from where there are panoramic views across to Sardinia.
