Bosporus Cruise from Europe to Asia & Grand Bazar
Istanbul is the only city in the world that belongs to two continents: Europe and Asia. The Bosporus strait divides these two continents and the two parts of Istanbul are connected by the Galata and Ataturk Bridges.
In your private tender boat, you will find yourselves gliding through the Bosporus, among various other vessels with both sides of the city, the Orient and the Occident, looking at you and the rich past emerging. With your boat, you will pass by the palaces Dolmabahce and Ciragan.
On the Asian side, you will visit the Beylerbeyi Palace, the summer residence of the sultans, the Castle of Anatolia and the magnificent Kanlica Villa, which seems to “lean” on the Bosporus. The magic of this voyage ends at the never-sleeping market of the Grand Bazaar.
During the excursion, you will have the opportunity to do some shopping such as carpets, jewelry, leather and other souvenirs.
Spectacular Oia Village Perched on the Caldera rim
First you head up to Megalochori village, one of the most authentic and unspoiled villages of the island with its distinctive architecture and character.
We will continue on to the east, in the background, you will have settlements like Kamari and Monolithos, while you will pass through Fira, the small traditional villages of Firostefani and Imerovigli with delicate architecture and beauties, to eventually arrive at the settlement of Oia. During the entire route, to the west you will have before your eyes the lace-like caldera, the little islands of Thirasia, Palea and Nea Kameni and an unsurpassable panoramic view. In Oia you will have plenty of time to stroll through the marble-paved alleys, to gaze at the adorably cute shops, to take pictures, to become acquainted with the characteristic buildings, carved into the rocks and the unusual captains’ manors, the settlement Ammoudi at the foot of the caldera… After your curiosity has been sated of the area which is characterized as being of “exceptional natural beauty”, your return begins …
Minoan Palace of Knossos – 1st European Civilization
The ancient city of Knossos, with constant habitation from the Neolithic era until the 5th century A.D., is beyond doubt the land that “gave birth” to the first civilization of Europe, the Minoans.
The first excavations were begun in 1878 by the Heraklian Minos Kalokairinos. A bit later (1900-1913 & 1922-1930) the excavations by the British Sir Arthur Evans were to complete the scientific research, bringing to light the Minoan palace in its entirety, which was, according to tradition, the residence of the wise King Minos.
The palace of Knossos spreads around the large Central Court. You will reach the awe inspiring Throne Room, the fresco of the “Prince of the Lilies”, the imposing Grand Staircase, the Queen’s Megaron in the east.
Walking through the apartments of the Knossos palace and observing the finds even as passers-by, you will feel part of this cultural heritage.
We will stop in Heraklion on the way back to the ship.
Heraklion was founded in 824 and is an important homeland of many contributors to Literature and Art, some examples of which are the Nobel winning poet Odysseas Elytis, the Renaissance painter Domenikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco) and the writer Nikos Kazantzakis.
Heraklion is also endowed with some wonderful edifices: the “Koules” fortress, the award winning Venetian structure of the Loggia, the Morosini Fountain, the Basilica of Saint Mark, and the Church of Agios Titos. Starting the walk from Liberty square of Heraklion guests will pass by the shopping streets of Dedalou and 25th August and see the aforementioned sights along the way.
