Join VMFA for this nine-day Aegean odyssey cruising round trip from Athens, Greece aboard the chartered, Five-Star small ship Le Bougainville. Call on the islands of Delos, Mykonos, Pátmos, Rhodes, Santorini and the Peloponnese Peninsula. Visit spectacular Ephesus, arguably the finest example of a Greco-Roman classical city; walk through the fabled Lion Gate of legendary Mycenae; and explore the monumental ruins of the Sanctuary of Asklepios of Epidaurus. Engage with local residents who will discuss contemporary life on the islands during the specially arranged Island Life® Forum. Two optional extensions are available: Athens and Cape Sounion pre-trip, and Delphi and Thebes post-trip.
