In June 2013, we sailed on back-to-back Disney Cruises in the Mediterranean. Highlights included ports with access to Florence, Rome, Venice, Athens, Ephesus, Dubrovnik, Naples, Malta, Mykonos, Villefranche, and Barcelona. We began this blog in the planning stages, posted during the trip itself, and are continuing to share not only our experiences, but information we learned along the way. We hope our blog will be useful to others planning visits to the Mediterranean whether by land or by sea.

Inaugural call to Piraeus, the port of Athens
Friday was the Disney Magic's first call to Piraeus, Greece, and when we arrived, there was a welcome banner hanging for us. While some ports have great fanfare for an inaugural call, that was not the case for Piraeus, but we felt welcomed by our tour provider who led us on an excellent tour of the Acropolis and Archaeological Museum, including a delicious lunch in Plaka in Athens. After the night's Greek Isles dinner, there was a deck party that the boys and I went to, thus our festive headgear.
