From the port of Piraeus and the port of Athens, Costa Cruises accompanies you into the cradle of Hellenic civilization and of Europe as a whole. Athens is a great city and full of many surprises, dominated by the sacred rock of the Acropolis. From the ancient “upper city," with the remains of the Parthenon and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, you reach the heart of the historic center of Athens: the Plaka. Its narrow winding streets at the foot of the Acropolis include restaurants, shops, craft shops, Orthodox churches. It is here that, during our cruise in Greece, we can experience the cultural mix that characterizes the city of the first democracy. But Greece also means seaside and islands: Mykonos is the island that never sleeps, Santorini lives on a volcano, Kalamata in the foothills of the Taygetos Oros, the port of Katakolon, from where you can reach Olympia, the same Olympia which is the birthplace of the Olympics, and the island of Crete, the cradle of the Minoan civilization.
