11 days Athens-Mykonos-Santorini-Corinth Canal-Corfu-Saranda-Kotor-Hvar-Dubrovnik 2020

In Piraeus, everything revolves around the largest port in Greece, the city borders directly on Athens. Then it is on to Mykonos with its typical windmills. Santorini is a dream with its chalk-white houses, which are mostly built like cubes and cling to the cliff. A technical masterpiece awaits you on your journey: the Corinth Canal. This breathtakingly narrow passage will be a unique experience on your cruise ship. Corfu is charming, it is the island of olives and wine. The Albanian city of Saranda is the starting point for excursions to fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In Kotor you can admire the Adriatic coast of Montenegro. At the end of your cruise you will discover beautiful Dubrovnik, also known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic”.

Saranda (lies at anchor)
Excursion to the “stone city” of Gjirokastra.

Gjirokastra is famous for its Ottoman-style fortified tower houses, which are stacked up against the hillside and reached by winding pathways. Virtually all the houses seen today were built in the early 19th-century, especially after 1811 when Ali Pasha made the city a hub of trade and communications in the region. We will start the tour with a visit to the Old Bazaar, a narrow street with local handmade souvenir shops, and traditional houses. The road through the bazaar will lead us to the Castle of Gjirokastra, the tour of the castle will take 1.5 hours. We will also visit the Clocktower where we will have a magnificent panorama view of the city and various neighbourhoods. After the castle, we will visit one of the traditional houses, the house of birth of the ex-dictator of the country, Enver Hoxha. The tour will end with the visit in a very strategic "hidden" point of Gjirokastra at "Obelisk". After the tour, we will return to the port of Saranda.
