Venice to Istanbul Cruise: 9 - nights in October 2012

Set sail from Venice on a dream Cruise to Istanbul. Spend a day in the beautiful canal city of Venice and a day at sea before porting in Corfu. Corfu's unique scenery, gentle green hills and subtropical flora rank it among the most captivating of all the Greek Islands. Spend another days in the sparkling waters before arriving on the island that epitomises perfection- Santorini. Be met by the breathtaking sight of this sunken caldera volcano island. With its soaring cliffs, white washed houses and scintillating waters you'll never want to leave. The next port is Kusadasi, Turkey. The central and southern Aegean is probably the most developed area of Turkey, and the rolling hills, mountains surrounded by clear blue seas, and glorious white-sand beaches are just a few of the reasons why. Wandering through historic ruins, boating, scuba diving, basking in the Anatolian sun, and eating fresh fish are just some of the ways you can fill your day. Set foot on Greece again at Mykonos. The island’s historic setting and captivating beauty combine to make it one of the most celebrated holiday destinations in Greece. Mykonos Town is a colourful maze of narrow streets lined by whitewashed houses with bright blue doors and shutters. Many of the old houses along the waterfront became restaurants, bars and discos catering to an international yachting crowd. The island’s famous windmills form an attractive backdrop, and are lined up like toy soldiers on the hillside. Spend a day in Canakkale, Turkey where colourful yachts pass through and end the cruise in Istanbul. Be sure to visit the Grand Bazaar and the many beautiful Mosques and churches.
