Sicily and Greece
Day 1 - Piraeus (Greece)
Embark Star Flyer in Piraeus.
Day 2 - Monemvasia
This perfectly preserved ancient walled town is connected to the Peloponnese mainland by a causeway. The maze of medieval streets and twisting alleys lead up to the 12th-century Byzantine church of Aghia Sophia, and to the fortress which defended the enclave from assaults by Normans, Catalans and pirates.
Day 3 - Pilos
Picturesque Pilos has a huge natural harbour surrounded by pine-covered hills. Perhaps visit the Mycenean Palace of Nestor and the archaeological museum in nearby Chora, or take a boat trip to the lighthouse at the entrance of the bay of Navarino.
Day 4 - At Sea
Enjoy the ship's facilities on a relaxing day at sea.
Day 5 - Syracuse (Sicily)
Syracuse’s timeless beauty is a delight to behold; a labyrinth of medieval lanes leads to the sparkling blue sea and ancient Greek ruins rising from fragrant lemon orchards are a window into the fascinating history of the Mediterranean.
Day 6 - Valletta (Malta)
Disembark Star Flyer in Valletta.
