Whilst in Athens, don’t forget to admire and experience its stunningly blue waters. There are numerous cruises, which depart from one of the ports or marinas and take you to the mind-blowing islands near and far from Athens, or just let you sail around the blue seas. If you have ample time, why not take a tour of the whole Mediterranean. For example, Variety Cruises, Windstar Cruises and Voyages to Antiquity offer luxurious cruises. You can even opt for renting a sailing boat or a catamaran and become the captain of your own vacation. Boats can be booked through international services, like Boatbureau.com, or local sites, such as Islandsailing.gr.
