A New Trend in Greece: Archaeological Cruises

October 1, 2012

Tired of your same old yacht charter holidays? Well, maybe it’s time you try out something different. The Greeks have thought about promoting the rich archeological heritage in the Aegean that’s been left by the ancient civilizations in a way that’s never been done before.

They’re called Archaeological cruises and they aim to promote some of the most known locations in the Aegean Sea such as Serifos, Milos, Santorini, Paros, Delos, Mykonos, Syros and Aegina. Apart from the fact that you’ll get to see remains that stretch out from the Paleolithic to the Neolithic and all the way to the Bronze Age.

The 10-day expedition will cover a variety of subjects, ranging from seafaring, prehistoric obsidian trading, the Bronze Age, volcanic eruptions to the myth of Atlantis and ancient technologies.

But the thing that sets these tours apart is the sheer quality of the services they offer. Not only will you be guided in your voyages by expert scholars from top American universities but you will travel aboard luxurious motoryachts that offer 5-star accommodations.

In between objectives there will be time for shopping and visiting so that your cruise doesn’t feel too much like school and while aboard your yacht, you’ll be treated like a king by the crew of waiters and cooks that promise to do everything in their power to make your trip as pleasant and unforgettable as possible.

This is an interesting and new way of discovering the classic sailing and yacht charter area of the Cyclades, that has long been on the sailors’ circuit and that still receives many adventurers each year.
