From Laurium, ATYLA will sail south through the Aegean Sea, over the Greek island of Crete and out into the open waters of the Mediterranean towards the island of Malta. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Laurium is a picturesque Greek town with great atmosphere and ancient ruins at each turn. Visit the archeological museum for artifacts dating back to 5 000 BC or the Mineralogical Museum to see traces of the town's mining history. Sit at one of the local tavernas and enjoy seafood while looking over the marina

La Valletta, the tiny capital of Malta, is a planned city, constructed in the 16th century as a fortified town and as the seat of power for the Order of Saint John. Today La Valletta is a UNESCO World Heritage, famous for its wide, straight streets. The city gets hot in the summer, so be sure to bring your swimming gear for a refreshing dive in the Mediterranean. Its many historic buildings are best admired in the early mornings, leaving the evenings for parading around the old harbor.
