Ports

  • Valletta
    Valletta

    Established in the 1500s by the Knights of St. John, this fortified city on a hilly peninsula soars between two of the finest natural harbors in the Mediterranean. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Valletta is defined by its sites of historical significance, with architecture dating back to the 16th century. Valletta is a pleasant and charming city to stroll, with little vehicle traffic and lots of stories to be discovered around every corner.

  • Syracuse, Sicily
    Syracuse, Sicily

    Syracuse sits nestled in the corner of the island of Sicily in the Ionian Sea. The birthplace of the celebrated mathematician and inventor Archimedes, the 2,700-year-old city played a key role in ancient times as a major power in the Mediterranean world. Once described by the Roman poet Cicero as “the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all,” Syracuse is defined by its rich Greek and Roman history, culture, and architecture. The Archaeological Park Neapolis boasts the Roman Amphitheater, the Teatro Greco, and the Orecchio di Dionisio, a limestone cave that resembles the shape of a human ear. The Museo Archeologico Regionale Paolo Orsi displays terracotta artifacts, Roman portraits, and Old Testament scenes carved into white marble. Syracuse is your gateway to the UNESCO-awarded Baroque city of Noto and the Catacombs of San Giovanni.

  • Zakynthos
    Zakynthos

    Nestled in the Ionian Sea, the island of Zakynthos is named after the son of a legendary Arcadian chief and a son of Zeus, Dardanus. The Venetians nicknamed the island “the Flower of the East,” as it boasts many beautiful beaches and rich vegetation with agricultural products such as citrus fruit, olive oil, grapes, and currants. As with other Greek islands, the culture and history of Zakynthos is extensive, dating to the Old Stone Age. Oldest mentions of the island date to the Mycenaean period, and ancient Greek poet Homer included Zakynthos in his famous works, The Odyssey and The Iliad. The island is well known as an iconic diving spot and for Navagio Beach, whose name comes from a famous shipwreck in 1980. Enjoy Porto Limnionas Beach, Blue Caves, Keri Caves, Turtle Island, Banana Beach, and the endangered Loggerhead Sea Turtle habitat in the Zakynthos Marine Park of Laganas Bay. A rich culinary tradition and wine culture can be found on the island: thicker sauces accompany dishes that incorporate more poultry and meat than other Greek cuisine. Comoutos Winery is one of the oldest running wineries, established in 1638, and the island’s most famous wine, Verdea, is one of the only two wines in Greece under the PGI Category. Guests are welcome to explore the Venetian castle on Bochali Hill, providing a panoramic view of Zakynthos Town; the Church of St. Nicholas, and St. Dionysios Cathedral.

  • Galaxidi (Delphi)
    Galaxidi (Delphi)

    Galaxidi is a small village on the northern coast of the Corinth Golf lying west of Itea and 15 km southwest of Delphi. It allows excellent access to the incredible sight of Delphi which is within the top three archeological attractions in Greece and in 1987 was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage Site. It is believed the Zeus wanted to find the center of the Earth so he sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities and where they met was Delphi – becoming the “navel/center of the earth”. SeaDream has arranged the very best guides and vehicles from Athens to further enhance this incredible visit. Your guided visit highlights the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, where Pythia, the celebrated Oracle dwelt, the Temple of Apollo, the Sacred Way, the amphitheater, the best-preserved stadium of Greece, and the Castalia Spring, where in ancient days the pilgrims had to wash before they were allowed to consult the Oracle. In the Delphi Museum, see such treasures as the Omphalos, which marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. After the museum, there will be free time to visit the village of Delphi. SeaDream has the option of docking along the small pier in Itea or anchoring off to provide water sports options. This is dependent on availability as well as a number of guests visiting the archeological site.

  • Corinth Canal (Transit)
    Corinth Canal (Transit)

    So narrow! So dramatic! You'll understand why SeaDream says "expect the unexpected" as your yacht transits the Corinth Canal. The canal was first completed in 1893, despite previous attempts from ancient times; the first plans being from 602BC. The Roman Emporer Nero actually started construction in 67AD, making the first cut himself with a golden pick. The canal we transit is 6.3 kilometres (3.9 mi) in length. Before the canal, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic had to circumnavigate the Peloponnese Peninsula adding about 185 nautical miles to their voyage.

  • Syros
    Syros

    The small island of Syros offers the quintessential Greek island holiday experience without the crowds often found in the more well-known Greek Isles. With pristine blue waters, Syros’ breathtaking beaches are sure to impress. Kini, Vari, Azolimnos and Yalissás Beach are among its most famous options to bask in the sun. Beyond its beautiful beaches, Syros is part of the Cyclades, an island group in the Aegean Sea, and is filled with culture and history. The island is also commonly recognized for its Aegean cuisine which features several local specialties, making Syros a culinary destination.

  • Hydra
    Hydra

    There is one main town on Hydra, known simply as "Hydra port". It consists of a crescent-shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals (Hydriots). Steep stone streets lead up and outwards from the harbor area. The charm of Hydra town certainly lies in her rich history, beautiful port and waterfront unspoiled by motorized vehicles. The island offers a rugged charm and some spectacular scenes and makes the perfect place for some self-exploration.

  • Athens (Piraeus)
    Athens (Piraeus)

    Piraeus, roughly translating to “the place over the passage”, is an important Greek port located within the Athens agglomeration, in the Attica Basin. It is 12 kilometers from the municipality of Athens, considered the fourth largest and is the third most populous amongst all the municipalities of Greece. Now a peninsula, Piraeus, originally a rocky island, was developed in early 5th Century B.C. when it was initially designated as Athens’ import and transit trade port. It is the largest marine-based shipping center of Greece, one of the largest ports in Europe, and considered the second largest passenger port in the world. Inhabited since the 26th Century, it wasn’t until the 6th Century B.C. that Piraeus began catching attention. The land of Piraeus was essentially impassable, flooded by the sea most of the year until centuries passed and the flooding ceased. By the 5th Century B.C. it became a navy base for the Athenian fleet for the natural harbors and the strategic potential they carried. Athenian general and politician Themistocles fortified Piraeus’ three harbors Kantharos, Zea and Munichia, created ship houses and completed his walls in 471 B.C., which led to the port becoming a great military and commercial harbor. There are many archaeological sites, points of interest and entertainment available in Piraeus. Most famous for its tavernas and cuisine, several popular events take place in Piraeus, such as the Ecocinema International Film Festival, the Maritime Festival, the Piraeus Rock Wave Festival and the Three Kings’ Way Festival. There are also many theaters, including the Municipal Theater, the open air Veakeio Theater, and the Menandreio Theater. Museums in Piraeus include the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, the Merchant Shipping History Institute Exhibition, the Panos Aravantinos Decor Museum, the Georgios Averof Museum Ship and the Museum of Electric Railways. Be sure to catch the panoramic views available from the hill of Kastella, overlooking Athens and the Saronic Gulf!
