Departing from Istanbul, PONANT brings you an itinerary along the coastlines in the Aegean Sea, to discover outstanding natural and historical sites. During this 13-day cruiseLe Bougainville invites you to a sensorial and cultural journey to the heart of the ancient treasures of Turkey and Greece.

Your voyage will start with a call at the Çesme peninsula. The imposing Ottoman fortress dominates the azurean sea and the small multicultural city, prized by the Smyrniots seeking freshness, reveals itself through the picturesque streets of Alaçati and the enchanting beaches.

You will continue your tour of the Turkish shores as you visit the town of Kusadasi, not far from the Ephesus site. An old fishing village with history going back 5,000 years, is now one of Turkey’s most famous seaside resorts.

Offering historical visits to the remains of the ancient Greek city of Halicarnassus or the famous Castle of St Peter or the Museum Of Underwater Archaeology, and the chance for a relaxing break on its stunning beaches, Bodrum is sure to win your heart.

Head for the Dodecanese islands, at the crossroads of the Orient and the Occident. The beautiful neoclassical houses surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and cypresses make Symi one of the most beautiful islands in the archipelago. You will then set a course towards Patmos, known as the 'Jerusalem of the Aegean Sea'. This island, where Saint John is said to have written the Apocalypse, offers unique landscapes combining white sandy beaches and rocky coves.

In the south-eastern Aegean Sea, the Cyclades archipelago invites you to enjoy the wild and appealing beauty of its islands. Amorgos, the easternmost Cyclades island, is sure to win your heart. Wild and mountainous, Amorgos is a stunning, protected island which has been used for many things including filming Le Grand Bleu. The serene atmosphere of this spiritual centre infuses its sumptuous scenery. The landscapes of Milos, between limestone cliffs and small confidential coves can be discovered in a soothing atmosphere. You will then make a detour via the island of Hydra, famous for its incomparable light and the calm of its small streets on which all motorised traffic is banned.

Then you will reach Istanbul, a rich historical UNESCO listed site, at the end of a magnificent cruise.
