Journey Through the Ancient World

Seadream Yacht Club has a whole nine-day journey from Istanbul to Athens aboard its mega motor-cruiser SeaDream I in May of next year, with the opportunity to visit Gallipoli, the wonders of Ephesus or Kusadasi's grand bazaar, medieval Rhodes, and the Greek Islands' breathtakingly beautiful Santorini and Mykonos, and motor-vehicle free Hydra, where locals and visitors alike get around on foot or by donkey.

There'll also be the chance to see the recently-excavated Terrace Houses and the House of the Virgin Mary near Kusadasi, the Monastery of St John on Patmos Island (where he wrote the Book of Revelations), and Bodrum's Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one's of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.


For those not interested in visiting Gallipoli when SeaDream I has a day in Kepez, there is an optional tour to the remains of the ancient city of Troy, and in Rhodes guests can see the extraordinary walls of the city that are 12 metres thick and surrounded by a moat 21 metres wide. Santorini, whose villages cling to the edge of an ancient volcano that wiped out the island's earliest settlements 3,600 years ago, is considered Greece's most popular destination, and at Mykonos, there will be a full day and evening  to enjoy its beaches and cosmopolitan lifestyle.


SeaDream Yacht Club includes five-star cuisine and premium wines and bar drinks in its prices, together with power and sail water-sports (where locally permitted,) a 30-international course golf simulator, a state of the art fitness centre, mountain bikes for shore excursions, port charges and taxes, and even gratuities.


SeaDream I carries a maximum of just 112 guests served by 95 crew, and the nine-day itinerary departs Istanbul for Athens on May 21, 2015 and starts from US$6,048 per person twin-share.
