Explore some fascinating parts of the world beginning in Istanbul. This city spans Europe and Asia and holds beautiful Mosques and churches. Shop the Grand Bazaar for all sorts of treasures or bathe in the turkish baths! Myrina, Nisos Limnos, Greece is a volcanic island located near the mouth of the Dardenelles packed with a myriad of history. In Izmir find a fine Archaeology Museum and Ethnography Museum house a multitude of treasures and exhibits, while nearby resorts provide distractions of another sort. Earthquakes and fires over the centuries have obliterated most of ancient Smyrna, as it was once known, but remnants of the 4th-century fort atop Mt. Pagos still provide excellent views of the city and Gulf of Izmir. Cesme is a coastal town and seaside resort on the Aegean, west of Izmir and on the extreme western tip of Turkey. It is a popular holiday destination, boasting crystal clear waters and beautiful sand beaches. Kos, Greece has a marvelous climate, lively night life, outstanding beaches and an incredible variety of water sports. Fall in love with the perfection that is Santorini. Santorini is black sands, beautiful white washed houses perched on soaring cliffs overlooking sparkling waters. Santorini is the most picturesque place! Chania is bordered by endless stretches of seashore, with inlets and islands of exotic beauty and sandy beaches tucked away at the foot of the island's forbidding mountains. This is a self-sufficient region that is blessed with rich flora and fauna, as well as impressive gorges, holy caves, rivers and lush, green plains blanketed with citrus groves. Disembark the cruise in Piraeus, the busy port of Athens.
