For mouthwatering natural beauty and outstanding archaeological sites, there are few journeys in the world that can compare with this two-week cruise of the Greek Islands and the coast of Turkey. The quality of the light, the clear waters of the Aegean and the drama of the landscape have inspired writers, poets and artists since the time of Homer. From the emergence of the Minoans on Crete to the flourishing of Ancient Greek culture and the epic struggle between east and west that raged since King Darius reigned Persia to the age of the Crusades, it is here that much of the history of western civilisation has been played out.
