Before there were fortune cookies there was the oracle of Delphi, dating back to 1400 B.C.

SAT MAY 2
5:00 PM TO 8:00 PM Corinth Canal

day 50 Transit Corinth Canal, Greece


Transit Corinth Canal, Greece
You’ll want to be on deck today as we transit the narrow Corinth Canal with other private yachts and Greek mail steamers. It’s a shortcut reserved for petite ships like ours, and as we cruise between the narrow limestone walls we are the envy of all the ancient Romans who once portaged their ships along this very route before there was a canal.
 
Canal transit time and duration is subject to change based on traffic and canal authorities.
SUN MAY 3

Toast the day with a crisp, cold glass of local Assyrtiko wine.
TUE MAY 5
7:00 AM TO Athens

day 53 Athens, Greece


Athens, Greece
With 3,000 years of history, you can’t turn around in Athens without encountering the past. The Acropolis, a UNESCO site, the Plaka, and the Acropolis Museum are must-sees. But leave time if you can to climb Pnyx Hill for photos of the Parthenon at sunset, to buy your own set of Greek komboloi (worry beads), and to explore the metro stations that serve as mini-museums for the relics that are constantly being unearthed.
