Greece and Turkey

“Going island-hopping on a nice sailboat in Greece!” —@Lauramarkis

Follow Odysseus’s journey on the Aegean aboard a four-masted, 360-foot yacht from Windstar Cruises (from $3,000 per person). Seven-day itineraries between Piraeus, the port of Athens, and Istanbul call on some of the region’s most picturesque isles. In Mykonos, you’ll love the whitewashed churches, thatched windmills, and boutiques that made it a favorite haunt of Jacqueline Onassis. For a sense of Roman excess, stroll through the vast ruins of marbled streets, mosaic-floored villas, and the colonnaded library in Ephesus. In Istanbul, take a few days to explore the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace—all are close to the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet ($$$$).
