Your three-night adventure starts as we head out to the idyllic island of Mykonos. Home to the famous white windmills, the Island of the Winds is a picturesque paradise with traditional villages, charming churches, whitewashed houses and a lively waterfront lined with bohemian cafes and welcoming bars.
The magical sun-kissed island of Mykonos invites you to admire its stunning coastline, soft sandy beaches, and rugged rocky landscape.

The energetic Greek island is well known for its beauty, diverse range of bars, cafes and restaurants and a vibrant atmosphere.
We arrive in the stunning coastal town of Kusadasi in the morning where you will disembark to join your expert guide for the complimentary excursion to the iconic Hellenistic ruins of Ephesus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Upon returning, you’ll have just enough time to browse the port side bazaar.
In the afternoon, we head to the volcanic island of Patmos with its enchanting lace-like coastline and dramatic sheer cliffs. Patmos is where John the Baptist is thought to have penned the Book of Revelation and you have the opportunity to visit the “Cave of the Apocalypse” and monastery or indulge in a traditional feast.
