Appreciate the magic of the Aegean Sea on our Greek Isles & Turkish Delights Cruise (August 16-23, 2015) on board the luxurious, 5-star Azamara Journey with the women of Olivia! With histories and cultures spanning more than 2000 years, it’s no wonder that Greece and Turkey are must-see countries. Istanbul is the gateway to Asia (or to Europe, depending on which direction you’re facing), and houses the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Haghia Sophia, which was first a church for 1,000 years before becoming a mosque and now a museum. In Lesvos, hang out on the island that gave us one of ancient Greece’s greatest poets, Sappho, and enjoy a glass of ouzo (Greece’s famous aniseed-flavored spirit). Imagine yourself strolling the streets of Ephesus, the second-largest metropolitan area in the Roman Empire, passing the Temple of Artemis and the Library of Celsus. Then, relax on the white, red and black sand beaches of Mykonos and Santorini, dine on fresh seafood, sip Greek wine and watch some of the fiercest and fiery sunsets you’ll ever see. You’ll travel to Chania, Crete, where you will see the intersections of Greek, Venetian and Ottoman influences on every corner through Minoan ruins, Byzantine churches and impressive frescos. Finally, when you debark in Athens, you’ll see some of the most impressive, ancient architecture the world has ever known...it dots the hillside and lights up the night sky to remind you that a civilization once so powerful still remains incredibly influential.
