There’s no need to go far to see the marvellous treasures of the Mediterranean. Depart from Athens and travel west to explore the ancient seaside villages of the Peloponnese, such as Epidaurus, or southeast towards Sounion where you can spend the night under the Temple of Poseidon.

Make sure you anchor at Monemvasia – this medieval town, carved into the rocky hillside, is regarded as one of the most romantic destinations in Greece.
