Explore Melissani Cave on an MSC Cruises excursion, a perfect day out for nature buffs. This environmental wonder is just a short distance from the capital Argostoli and is surrounded by beautiful forest. Inside the cave, discover two magnificent halls, crystal clear water, and an islet in the middle. Marvel skyward at a massive opening through which bright daylight glistens. Afterwards, relax at a wine tasting session in Robola before visiting the charming harbour village of Sami. Then, take photos at the pristine Myrtos beach, with its white sands and majestic mountains.
 
Relax on a leisurely MSC Cruises excursion, starting with a scenic drive around gorgeous Cephalonia. Learn about the island’s endangered population of loggerhead turtles and their beachside nesting grounds. Soak up some sun on magical Myrtos Beach before journeying to Assos, a fishing village characterised by its gelati-hued houses. End the tour in fabulous Fiscardo, a soothing seaside town.
 
Take an MSC Cruises excursion to one of the world’s most unforgettable geological locations, the epic Drogarati Cave. Formed over 100 million years ago, this natural wonder is a stalactite and stalagmite haven! Visit a remarkable cavern called the 'Apotheosis Chamber' known for its otherworldly acoustics. Then, continue the tour at Agia Efimia, a village popular with the yachting fraternity. Finish the day at St. George’s Castle, above pretty Peratata Village. Then, enjoy a scenic coach drive along the Ionian coast, back to Argostoli.

    Under the protective wing of the gods
    Under the protective wing of the gods

    It would take a lifetime of island-hopping to fully appreciate the 227 inhabited Greek islands scattered across the Mediterranean Sea.
    With sapphire water lapping at rocky coastlines sprinkled with secret coves and sandy beaches, they are the stuff of dreamy travel posters, the very definition of the eulogized Greek summer of sun, sea and sand.



    For anyone with a cultural bone in their body a cruise to the Greek islands cannot fail to inspire. Every culture has left its mark, and almost every town or village has a link to the past, whether it’s a delicately crumbling temple to Aphrodite, a forbidding Venetian fort or a dusty Byzantine monastery decorated with exquisite frescoes. 


    But the call to cultural duty will never be too overwhelming on a Greek islands holiday. The hedonistic pleasures of languor and warmth – swimming in balmy seas at dusk, talking and drinking under the stars – are just as appealing.
    Sprawling, globalized Athens is an obligatory, almost unavoidable introduction to Greece: aside from the show-stopping Acropolis it offers a truly metropolitan range of cultural diversions, from museums to concerts; well-stocked shops; gourmet restaurants and stimulating clubs.
