In partnership with RADIO CLASSIQUE with the exceptional presence on board of Renaud Capuçon and Alain Duault.

From the Maltese archipelago to the Greek coast via Sicily, PONANT invites you to experience exceptional moments discovering fascinating sites.

Le Lyrial will leave Valletta, the capital of Malta and former stronghold of the Knights of the Order of Malta, for an 8-day cruise on seas that are brimming with history.  

After calling at beautiful Catania whose Late Baroque style monuments spread to the foot of Mount Etna, we will set sail for Taormina.  

In Taormina, the streets will lead you to the impressive ancient theatre, where the quality of the acoustics is exceptional. And as a constant backdrop: the majestic Mount Etna!

Le Lyrial will then cross the Ionian Sea towards Katakolon, its first Greek point of call. From the port, you will be able to head to Olympia, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, whose ruins testify to its former grandeur. On the following day, from Itea, another exceptional site awaits: Delphi.

Your ship will then sail along the astonishing Corinth Canal, a famous sea channel dug out by men in the 19th century, and arrive in Nafplion. From Nafplion you will able to visit two ancient jewels: the Epidaurus Theatre and Mycenae, the royal city of House of Atreus.

The cruise will then enable you to discover Hydra, a small island of old-worldly charm where motorised traffic is banned.

Your cruise will end in Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis and its monuments that form the most extraordinary architectural and artistic collection bequeathed by Ancient Greece to the rest of the world.
