Jewels of the Cyclades Yacht Cruise

Jewels of the Cyclades Cruise Introduction

This is an historical and cultural adventure around the awe-inspiring islands of the Cyclades exploring both geographical and historical wonders.

From the ancient city of Delos to the volcanic island of Santorini, the largest active volcanic caldera in the world (5 times larger than Krakatoa) this is a delightful cruise in a totally traditional manner on the sail-assisted yacht Galileo.
