2 June

Setting sail from Athens (Piraeus)

Athens is a city awash with historical and cultural significance. Towering over the city are the gleaming columns of the Parthenon, surely one of the most iconic sights in the whole of Europe. And yet Athens is much more than an open air museum; this is a dynamic, bustling metropolis, and a place where history is still very much unfolding. For all its faults, the Greek capital possesses an energy and an optimism that are manifest in everything from the burgeoning art scene to the restaurants and bars that continue to pop up on a regular basis.

Our tip

Once you have seen the essentials, explore further afield and you will immediately escape the tourist crowds. Visit Kerameikos cemetery, for example, or Mount Lycabettus.

9 June

Arriving in Athens (Piraeus)

Don't miss

Obviously don’t miss the Acropolis, nor the new adjacent museum, where space has pointedly been left for the frieze we call the Elgin Marbles – it is really excellent. Then take time to stroll on the hills and slopes around the outcrop.

Your home from home

Le Ponant sailing ship
Le Ponant - Cabin
Le Ponant guest on deck

Le Ponant is a beautiful three-masted sailing yacht carrying just 32 guests, small enough to visit some of the world's most secluded harbours.

What we love

Ponant's most intimate ship came into service over 20 years ago, but is still much loved today. The yacht is ultra sleek in its design, and the modern staterooms all have porthole windows. The mostly francophone guests love the al fresco nature of the public spaces, with a large sundeck, outdoor restaurant and swimming marina, and you'll always feel connected to the sea.

Capacity 32 Guests
Crew 33 Staff
Style Refined with a wonderful mix of a modern super yacht and nautical tradition, all with a French flair.
Inclusions
