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.

  • Milos

    Milos Island lies halfway between Crete and Piraeus port. Milos is "the island of colors" thanks to its volcanic origin which offers beaches and waters with a variety of colors and distinct beauty. Milos is famous for its dentelated coastline. With more than 75 small and big beaches of crystal, deep blue waters, multi-colored carved rocks and white-yellow coasts, it is virtually guaranteed that you will be impressed. Due to the volcanic origin of its ground, Milos presents an impressive coastal morphology and diversity. There are white-yellow beaches, bays with pebbles surrounded by stones, and white, red, yellow or black rocks. The sea there has distinctive colors and depths and there are organized beaches for swimming or you can choose more isolated and wild ones. It is certain that the island’s clear waters and its beaches of incomparable beauty will offer you an unprecedented experience.

  • 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.

  • Spetses

    This small Greek Isle is a best-kept secret. White-washed buildings, popular seaside cafes and bars, and a central piazza make Spetses a quintessential Mediterranean yachting port. Visitors to the island will enjoy visits to the Poseidonion Grand Hotel, idyllic Mediterranean beaches, and the island’s historic churches. You’ll step back to a simpler time as you quickly realize that Spetses is mostly automobile-free, so be sure to enjoy a traditional horse-drawn carriage ride along the seashore.

  • Gythio

    The port of Gythio in the southern Peloponessos has lots of good fish restaurants, some great ouzeries and is within easy driving distance of the Mani, Mystras, and much of the south-eastern coast of the Peloponessos. It was here that the powerful city-state of Sparta had its port and it is speculated that the Trojan ships were anchored here when Prince Paris spirited the beautiful Helen away to Troy. The town has some very pleasant old buildings built in the last two centuries. It is a pleasure to wander through with the neo-classical houses, shops and spectacular old apartment buildings, hugging the side of Mount Koumaros all the way down to the sea. It makes you feel like you are in the type of Greek port that disappeared with the introduction of mass tourism into the country.

  • At Sea

  • Syracuse, Sicily

    Syracuse, (Siracusa) is a historic city in southern Italy. The city is famous for its rich Greek and Roman history, culture, amphitheaters, architecture, and as the birthplace of Archimedes.

It was once described by Cicero as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all." Syracuse is located in the south-east corner of the island of Sicily, right by the Gulf of Syracuse next to the Ionian Sea. SeaDream has created two very attractive land adventures that can be viewed by clicking on the Land Adventures tab. One of them includes the Unesco awarded Baroque city of Noto.

  • Civitavecchia (Rome)

    Civitavecchia is a major port located in Rome, primarily utilized for maritime transportation of goods, as well as a fishing port. The commune’s name means “ancient town” and is one of the “Motorways of the Sea” in the Mediterranean, functioning as one of the main links between the mainland of Italy and Sardinia. The ancient name of the port was “Centumcellae,” first mentioned in a letter written by Pliny the Younger in 107 A.D., although scholars debate on whether the name was about the number of rooms of the Trajan Villa, or the number of natural creeks on the coast. Civitavecchia is a part of the Lazio Territory, an area which was confirmed to have social groups since pre-historic times, and the modern town was built over a pre-existing settlement of the Etruscan people in 107-108 B.C.E. (who debated to have founded Rome). In the beginning of the 2nd century, the harbor and town of Centumcellae were simultaneously developed by Emperor Trajan in the territory of Aquae Tauri. As the town became more popular for ships traveling westbound, the Thermal Baths were constructed on the hill of Ficoncella. Centumcellae flourished in the Imperial Age, and by 538 A.D., it had become a Byzantine stronghold. In 728 A.D., it became a member of the Papal States. The Saracens raided Centumcellae many times in the 9th century, prompting Pope Leo VII to have a newer and more secure settlement built by 854. The town, then known as Civita Vetula, was under the rule of several lords, and the Popes temporarily lost control during the French Rule in 1798-1815. In 1870 it entered the Kingdom of Italy. Civitavecchia was severely damaged during WWII, destroying many of the ancient monuments including Forte Michelangelo, which would be rebuilt in the 1950’s. Popular points of interest include the Forte Michelangelo, Terme Taurine, and Cattedrale di San Francesco. There is a wealth of Roman and Vatican architecture and tourists are encouraged to visit many of the museums and take the cultural tours available in this important sea port.

Once one of the most powerful of city-states, Sparta is today an unimposing modern town. The original Spartans lived an austere existence in barracks and cared little for buildings, monuments and the other "soft" trappings favored by their rivals; consequently scarcely a trace remains of their city to testify to its former might.

    The location of the ancient city of Mystras, on the steep slopes of the mountain made it very difficult for enemies to assult the city walls, which was primarily why William II in 1249 erected the citadel at this location. The territory which is today Greece, had fallen into the hands of the Latin knights of the Fourth Crusade after they decided to conquer Constantinople in 1205. The city had two entrances - the Monovasia Gate and the Nauplion Gate - both connected by a road, which in effect divided the city into two parts, the northern, which served as quarters for the palace and noble officials, and the southern, which housed the townspeople. Enter the Upper Town of Mystra, arguably the most exciting and dramatic site in the entire Peloponnese, through the heavily fortified Nauplion Gate and the multi-storied complex of the Despots Palace. It is a glorious medieval town with mansions, churches, monasteries and palaces lining its steep, narrow streets. The city flourished for 200 years before falling to the Turks.

    Enjoy time to wander through the delightful narrow lanes of this once invincible fortress and experience the spirit of Mystra, which seems to magically unfold about you. As your exploration of the "last Byzantine stronghold" concludes, reboard your coach for the return drive to Gythion.

    Notes

    There are numerous steep paths and stairs to negotiate on this tour; good walking shoes are recommended. Ladies are requested to have their shoulders covered; shorts must be knee length. Those who find the climb to the summit too strenuous will still be able to fully enjoy and admire the art in the beautifully painted churches of Aghios Dimitrios, the Evangelistria, and the Pantanassa.
