Voyage under full sail to the idyllic Greek Islands on tall ship Star Flyer, then spend an unforgettable three nights in the glamorous beach resort of Vouliagmeni on the Athenian Riviera, on this special holiday.

Board 170-passenger Star Flyer for an island-hopping cruise to the lesser-visited treasures of Greece. Firstly explore the Turkish town of Dikili, gateway to the ancient UNESCO-listed Pergamon ruins. Discover the unspoiled Greek town of Myrina, capital of Lemnos, with its long history of mythology and legends.

Visit the verdant Sporades islands of Skiathos and Skopelos, home to the Agios Ionnis Prodromos Monastery where the iconic wedding scene from Mamma Mia took place. Poros is Greece's well-kept secret, with its pastel-coloured houses, sparkling beaches and thriving cafe culture.

Transfer to Vouliagmeni, just 30 minutes from the centre of Athens and once the summer playground of Bridget Bardot and Jackie Onassis, with its turquoise bay, perfect beaches and fine seaside dining. Visit Vouliagmeni Lake, a mineral spa fed by underground thermal springs to offer a natural and unique thermal spa experience.
