Ports

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Sifnos Island

    This Greek Isle's history dates back before the year 4000 BC. The island has a rich history of silver and lead mining and was one of the first places where currency minting occurred in Greece. Today, the island is frequented for its beaches, churches, festivals, food, and of course, classic Greek isle architecture.

  • Santorini

    Santorini, officially named Thira, is the southernmost Greek island that is within the Cyclades archipelago, in the southern Aegean Sea. Part of the regional unit Thira, the municipality of Santorini is comprised of the island Santorini, Therasia, and other uninhabited islands of Christiana, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi, and Nea Kameni. The geological history of Santorini is quite complex due to the area’s volcanism and is currently a water-filled caldera: a rectangular lagoon that is surrounded by three steep cliffs. The name Santorini is a contraction of the name Santa Irini, which is based on an ancient cathedral found in the island’s village of Perissa. This name was given by the Latin Empire in the 13th Century. During the Ottoman Empire, Santorini was called “Santurin” or “Santoron”, and in early times, it was named Kalliste, Strongyle, and Thera. Santorini is the site of the Minoan Eruption (also known as the Thera Eruption), one of the largest eruptions ever in recorded history. The origins of Plato’s story of Atlantis is believed to have a connection to this eruption that destroyed the early settlements on what was formerly a single island. The descriptions found of Plato’s Atlantis strongly resembles Thera, and with seismological, archaeological, and volcanological evidence, these claims are further supported. There is also speculation that the eruption is related to the Exodus of the Israelites, as well as causing the plagues described in the Bible in ancient Egypt. The economy is sustained by two principal industries: tourism and agriculture, and has recently been voted as one of the world’s most beautiful islands in various outlets such as the Traveler’s Choice Awards in 2015. The wine industry in Santorini is becoming more relevant as well, made up of Assyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani grape varieties, which is best exemplified in Vinsanto (“holy wine”) which contains all three Aegean varietals. Although Santorini is highly arid, it’s unique ecology and climate allows it to grow unique and prized produce, such as cherry tomatoes, Lathyrus clymenum (a legume), and capers. Thus, tourists indulge in local specialties such as Brantada, Fava, and the traditional dish Santorinio Sfougato.

  • Patmos

    Patmos is in the South Aegean Islands, particularly a member of the Dodecanese Islands of Greece. It is north of Leros and is most known for its connection to John the Apostle from the Book of Revelations; therefore Christian pilgrims frequent this destination. In mythology, Patmos was named “Letois”, which is another named for the goddess Diana, Leto’s daughter. Since ancient authors seldom mention Patmos in early text, information on early inhabitants is limited. It is widely believed the original people of Patmos were the Carians from Asia Minor, as discovered by the earliest archaeological findings date back to the Bronze and Mycenaean periods. The mountain in the country of Caria was named Latmos, which is where historians believe the name Patmos is derived from. Dorians also colonized in Patmos, and over time, Ionians followed suit. The primary port in Patmos is Skala, which was one of the most important sea ports in the Mediterranean around the 16th century. Early Christian basilicas were constructed in the name of John of Patmos, however between the 7th and 9th century when Saracen attacks were still problematic, the Grand Royal Basilica was destroyed. A monastery began construction in 1101 when Christodoulos assumed authority over Patmos. The population began expanding as immigrants from the fall of Constantinople and Candia to place in the 15th and 17th centuries, respectively. The island was under the Ottoman rule for years and was interrupted by Venice during the Candian War, Russia during the Orlov Revolt, and Greece during their War of Independence. During the Italo-Turkish War, Italy occupied Patmos until 1943, when Nazi Germany held power over the island until 1945. Since Patmos rejoined in 1948, it has become the tranquil and frequented destination it is now. Tourists visit the Monastery of St. John, Chora, the Cave of Apocalypse, Psili Ammos Beach and other beautiful points of interest in “Europe’s most idyllic place to live,” as named by Forbes in 2009.

  • Agia Anna (Naxos)

    Close to Naxos, Agia Anna Beach features several beautiful sandy beaches, hotels, bars and cafes.  Many visit this beach town for the swimming, sunbathing, and romantic atmosphere.

  • Mykonos

    Mykonos is one of the most visited Greek Islands. It is part of the Cyclades group and lies between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 square kilometers (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 meters (1,119 feet) at its highest point. Mykonos is so incredibly beautiful; it is not surprising that it has become one of the most desired destinations in the world. When you also add the cosmopolitan lifestyle, the sophisticated nightlife and the historical treasures of the nearby Unesco Awarded Delos you’ll have the recipe for an unforgettable holiday. SeaDream usually anchors just of the famous windmills and tenders directly to the old town. Guests have a few organized options including the Sacred Island of Delos. Others may simply want to explore the island’s incredible beaches, boutiques, clubs and churches independently.

  • Santorini - Akrotiri Archaeological Site & Oia Village

    Description

    On this land adventure, you will have an incredible opportunity to visit one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean, Akrotiri Archaeological site and the picturesque village of Oia. Could Akrotiri really be the lost city of Atlantis? One of the reasons Santorini has attracted the world’s attention is the excavation at Akrotiri, which reclaimed a whole prehistoric Minoan city from the volcanic ash. The prehistoric site of Akrotiri is on the south-western tip of the island and was discovered in 1967 by Professor Spyros Marinatos as it was buried by the widespread Theran eruption in the middle of the second millennium BC. The excavations brought into light a remarkably well-preserved site with two and three-story homes decorated with marvelous wall paintings and frescoes, an advanced drainage system and many interesting objects, artworks, potteries and furniture which give a picture of a society which was very well organized and at the peak of prosperity. This was interrupted suddenly by the eruption of the volcano, which buried the entire city. An ambitious modern bio-climatic roof top structure protects this important archaeological settlement where excavation works are still in progress. Your SeaDream Land Adventure continues crossing the entire island and after a 30-minute drive, you will reach the northeast part of the island and its most picturesque town, Oia. Once a major fishing harbor, it is now the calmest place on the island. Built high up on the ridge of red rocks it offers breathtaking views of the blue Aegean. You leave your coaches for a stroll around the narrow streets with the old beautiful houses and the tiny picturesque shops. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the caldera cliff and wander in the narrow streets for shopping or a cup of coffee during your free time in the village. Returning to Fira town you can either take the cable car down to the port or wander around the narrow streets with the various shops and take a later cable car. For those SeaDream Active guests, you can also walk down the path back to Skala Fira (port). Now that the site has re-opened, we highly recommend you join us on this wonderful yachting land adventure.

  • Patmos - The Book of Revelations - Monastery of St. John & Patmian House

    Description

    Patmos is often called the Jerusalem of the Aegean, the sacred island where St. John wrote the Book of Revelations in the Bible. To gain a better appreciation of the islands sites and history, we invite you to join us on our uniquely interesting land adventure visit to the monastery where the resident monks will provide you with a guided walk through their sanctuaries. Don't be afraid to ask questions; almost all of them are quite interesting and love to engage in conversations with you. The driving distances from the pier are quite short so much of this land adventure is spent exploring the upper town on foot. You also have the opportunity to step into a typical Patmian home. The local guides are also helpful to point you into the right directions for any independent afternoon explorations of the upper (Chora) or lower (Skala) town on your own. And bring your Euros and credit cards. There are some interesting shops just outside the monastery. Do not forget to take in the breathtaking views from the Upper Town. Depart from the pier today for a short scenic ride to Chora and the UNESCO listed Monastery of St. John the Theologian, built high on an ancient acropolis. The monastery's massive 15th-century walls and 17th-century battlements loom over the town belying an intimate and peaceful interior of arches, inlaid pebble stone floors, and whitewashed buildings. The charming chapel of Christodoulos is profusely decorated with frescoes and the old treasury, now a museum, displays a breathtaking collection of jeweled chalices, crowns, crucifixes, vestments and old manuscripts. Travel on to the Grotto of St. John where the saint heard the voice of God and wrote his revelations. It was here, the most sacred spot on the island, where St. John the Theologian spent 16 months in exile, and this simple cave is now a chapel and place of pilgrimage. Both the Cave and the Monastery have been UNESCO listed in 1999. The iconostases built into the cave depict St. John's visions and the spots where the saint slept, wrote, and heard "a great voice, as of a trumpet." Back in Chora you'll visit one of the traditional Patmian houses, the house of the Simantiris family. The magnificence of Patmian home interiors is stunning. Entering the thick wooden entrance door is like stepping into another dimension, with Venetian style furniture, handicrafts and multi-colored mosaic ceilings dating from the 18th century.

Passing by the popular areas of “the three wells” and “Matoyinanni” where all the famous shops are located you reach the most photographed church of the island, Paraportiani. Continuing your walk you will pass by the open air fish and vegetable markets selling fresh local products. After your walking tour board your bus again for a drive to the unusual Asimomitis winery and vineyards.

Under the sounds of classical music you will be given the insight of the vineyard and the grapes. Following your visit to the winery you will return to the ship fulfilled with the tastes, smells and images of the real Mykonian life.

  • Sifnos Island - The Dazzling White Villages of Sifnos

    Description

    Do not miss this opportunity to discover the charming main villages of Si­fnos Island, the famous and idyllic Chrysopigi Monastery, and to enjoy the beauty of the island. We hope you will "tear" yourself away from the beach or our water sports platform to see all that this favorite island of ours has to offer. This guided, and for the most part walking tour, through the cobblestone village paths will bring you close to the interesting history of the island and show you all the many sites you are likely to miss on your own. The order of the villages visit will depend on the port selected by your Captain but will include the following. The monastery of Panayia Chrysopigi, the protectress of the island and unique symbol of Sifnos. A monastery famous for its architecture and location built on a rocky promontory, it is cut off from the mainland by a narrow strip of sea and was built in 1650. It is the most visited monument on the island, as much for the beauty of the site as for the peaceful atmosphere of this tranquil location. We know you have seen churches before but this one is very much worth a visit. As you travel through the interior of the island, pass through the ancient terraces that make up the landscape of Sifnos. Almost everywhere along the way you'll discover small brilliant white churches with blue domes. There are more than 370 small idyllic churches scattered throughout this small island with a history that goes back 4000 years. It was from this small island that the world famous Sifnian Treasure, now housed in the Delphi Museum, was presented to the temple of Apollo in Delphi, as a gift to the god Apollo. During the sixth century BC, Sifnos was famous for its gold and silver mines, and thus a very affluent island at the time. At Apollonia, the present capital of the island, enjoy a downhill walk along its stone paved pedestrian alleys leading you through this architecturally magnificently preserved town. The hamlets of this village spread out like an amphitheater on the slopes of three hills and are carved into terraces planted with olive trees. Labyrinths of stepped lanes, each one paved, strange chimney pots decorated with birds, chapels here and there, traditional shops, flowered courtyards - characteristics that make the place ideal for those who want to steep themselves in the atmosphere of Si­fnos and discover its subtle art of living. One of our favorite activities on this adventure is a walk through the (pedestrian only) medieval village of Kastro situated at the top of a rock with steep cliffs on its side and panoramic views over the sea and the neighboring islands. The capital of the island until 1836, Kastro played a very important role in the history of SU­fnos. Inhabited since prehistoric times, Kastro has kept all the characteristics of a fortified village, rebuilt in 1630 during the Venetian colonization. Here we have also included a rest stop (some call it an excuse) for you to enjoy a light snack with a glass of ouzo, or wine, or cafe. The village of Artemonas is a uniquely picturesque traditional village, seemingly unscathed by modern life. In the village's old aristocratic neighborhood you can admire neoclassic mansions built 200 years ago. The whitewashed houses with their fluid architecture are a truly enchanting experience for all visitors. From Artemonas your walk continues, mostly downhill, along the stone-paved pedestrian alleys of Pano Petali, offering breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding islands. We hope you have started to tie your shoelaces and are ready to join us on this lovely walking adventure. Let's go walking!

    Notes

    As you have noticed, comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended. You will spend approximately a combined two hours and 15 minutes walking amongst the beautiful villages on paved streets; including a few uphill sections and climb a combined 90 to 100 steps. It is all worth your effort and not that difficult for the average walker. Just think of the appetite you will work up for your next SeaDream meal.

    Description

    Naxos Island is the largest island in the Cyclades and it is one of the most beautiful among the Greek Islands. It combines superb fine sand beaches, fertile valleys and mountainous beauty. Naxos has a rich historical tradition. The passing of the Venetians through Naxos left ineffaceably its mark on the cultural, religious and social life of the island. Board your coach for a 50-minute drive to Apeiranthos village. Apeiranthos is a picturesque mountain village with a beautiful name meaning “plenty of flowers”. Its architecture is very impressive with the Venetian influence evident. One can see houses with coats of arms above their doors and there are also some ornate balconies on view. As you walk around the streets you will notice the marble under your feet and look out for the church of Panagia Aperathitissa which is one of the oldest on the island. Here you will also visit the Geological Museum, small but extremely impressive, with a vast collection of over 2000 stones, minerals and fossils found on the island through various excavations. The collection of rocks and stones is not limited to those only found in Greece but extends to other parts of the world as well. One can see apart from the "emery", the most precious metal in Naxos, obsidian blades from Milos, pumice from Santorini, volcanic minerals from Mounts Vesuvius and Etna, bauxite and cyanide from Brazil and also mineral rock from Meteorites.

  • Agia Anna (Naxos) - Walking Trails of Naxos

    Description

    You board your coach from the pier for a drive to the village of Flerio, where your walking exploration will begin. At Flerio, you will be able to see the archaic sanctuary by the water springs and the half-finished, giant, 6th century BC statues of Kouroi in the area of the quarries. From Flerio, the trail initially goes uphill on a wide footpath towards Potamia. Along the route you will be able to see threshing floors and lime furnaces in good condition. A marble paved pathway leads to Ano (“Upper”) Potamia, with the water-plentiful ancient fountain. Potamia’s three settlements (Upper, Middle and Lower), with their impressively preserved traditional architectural profile, adorn the valley which is dotted with watermills, historic chapels and tower houses, threshing floors and olive presses. At Ano Potamia, you will make a stop at a small traditional restaurant for light lunch. Continuing on, the trail forks out, with one leg going slightly uphill to Messi (“Middle”) Potamia, crossing the settlement and rejoining the second leg alongside the stream at the shady Platanaki position,with a traditional, stone-built laundry facility. At Lierado position, a downhill detour will take you to Kokkos tower, rising above the gully. After reaching Kato (“Lower”) Potamia, the route takes you through fruit orchards to rejoin the stream.
