Greece and Sicily Itinerary

Day 1 - Piraeus (Greece)

Embark Star Flyer in Piraeus.

Day 2 - Nafplio

Visit Nafplio which is argubaly one of Greece's prettiest towns which is overlooked by the impressive Palamidi fortress. Discover the magnificent Venetian houses and neoclassical mansions or shop in the upmarket boutiques.

Day 3 - Monemvasia

This perfectly preserved ancient walled town is connected to the Peloponnese mainland by a causeway. The maze of medieval streets and twisting alleys lead up to the 12th-century Byzantine church of Aghia Sophia, and to the fortress which defended the enclave from assaults by Normans, Catalans and pirates.

Day 4 - Pilos

Picturesque Pilos has a huge natural harbour surrounded by pine-covered hills. Perhaps visit the Mycenean Palace of Nestor and the archaeological museum in nearby Chora, or take a boat trip to the lighthouse at the entrance of the bay of Navarino.

Day 5 - At sea

Enjoy the ship's facilities on a relaxing day at sea.

Day 6 - Taormina (Sicily)

Taormina is full of culture, history and shopping opportunities. For pastry shops and upmarket Italian designer boutiques, go to Corso Umberto, or for exquisite views of the sea and Mount Etna, visit the much-photographed Greek amphitheatre. There is a cable car from Taormina down to Mazzaro Bay and the nature reserve of Isola Bella.

Day 7 - Syracuse

Syracuse’s timeless beauty is a delight to behold; a labyrinth of medieval lanes leads to the sparkling blue sea and ancient Greek ruins rising from fragrant lemon orchards are a window into the fascinating history of the Mediterranean.

Day 8 - Gozo (Malta)

Admire the Baroque churches, impressive forts and spectacular coastline of Gozo, an island steeped in myth. This is one of the Mediterranean's best diving spots with reefs, underwater caves and shipwrecks to explore.

Day 9 - Valletta

Disembark Star Flyer in Valletta.
