Venice

Venice Embark: 17 June 2023

Can any city match up to the romance of Venice? As the warm sunset casts its balmy glow over the charming canals it's hard to imagine it possible. Explore the maze of markets and cafés by gondola before heading to Harry's Bar to sip its famous Bellini cocktail. It won't take long on one of Venice' peaceful canals, beneath a beautiful bridge, for you to fall for this extraordinary city's spell.
Opatija, Croatia

Opatija, Croatia In Port: 18 June 2023

On the western peninsula of Croatia, just south west of the city of Rijeka Croatia, lies the beautiful town of Opatija. Anyone visiting the area will instantly understand why this small Croatian village of just 8,000 inhabitants is so popular. With its breathtaking views over the Adriatic towards the Kvarner Islands and up towards the Istrian mountains in the distance, Opatija really is a place of natural beauty. It is an ideal holiday resort, with its lovely mild climate, extensive beaches and 43-kilometre coastline. The European elite frequented the town for many centuries, earning it the well-deserved title, "The Adriatic Nice".
Vis Island, Croatia

Vis Island, Croatia In Port: 19 June 2023

Located some 30 miles off the Croatian coast, Vis is the most westerly inhabited island in the Adriatic and the largest in the Vis archipelago — a designated UNESCO Global Geopark and biodiverse haven for bottlenose dolphins, giant devil rays, and blue-fin tuna. The Greeks first settled here in the 4th century BC, followed by the Romans; during World War II, Vis served as an Allied base and refuge for future Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito. (You can visit the cave where Marshal Tito led his resistance efforts.) Only a few scattered ruins attest to the island’s former glory, although you can view Croatia’s largest collection of Hellenic artifacts at the archeological museum in Vis Town; just outside of town stands Fort George, built by the British in 1813. Closed to foreigners until 1989, Vis remains sparsely populated, much of it covered in vineyards, pine groves, and citrus orchards. Take a winery tour, relax on Rastovaca Beach, or hop on a moped and head to the tiny fishing village of Komiza; from there, catch a boat to Bisevo, an islet renowned for its mesmerizing Blue Cave.
Valletta, Malta

Valletta, Malta In Port: 21 June 2023

The fortifications at Malta's Grand Harbour speak volumes about her past, indeed her reputation for valour during the Second World war earned her the George Cross and there aren't too many islands you can say that of!Mosta and Medina (the silent city) will vie for your attention if you want to go wandering.
Syracusa, Sicily, Italy

Syracusa, Sicily, Italy In Port: 22 June 2023

Once home to Archimedes, Plato and Aeschylus during its height of power and prestige, Syracuse is superbly situated at the head of a beautiful bay and enjoys a mild climate.
Crotone, Italy

Crotone, Italy In Port: 23 June 2023

Founded around 710 BC, Crotone was long one of the most flourishing cities of Magna Graecia, an area of Southern Italy extensively colonized by Greek settlers. Today, visitors enjoy the fruits of this port city's rich history, including Cortone's medieval cathedral, the 16th century castle of Charles V, as well as numerous museums and art galleries. Picturesque beaches invite a leisurely stroll followed by a carefree negroni at a nearby bistro.
Sarande, Albania

Sarande, Albania In Port: 24 June 2023

This important port on Southern Albania curls around a superb natural harbor, dominated by the hilltop 16th century Lekuresi Castle with distinctive round towers. In the town center are the ruins of a 5th century synagogue, later a Christian basilica, with remnant mosaic floors. Another picturesque ruin is the Forty Saints Monastery from the 6th century, which is thought to have been an important pilgrimage site. But the main attraction in southern Albania is the archaeological site of Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with extensive ruins of communities dating from prehistory, though the Greek and Roman eras, as well as the Byzantine period, until the medieval period.
Kotor

Kotor In Port: 25 June 2023

Kotor is a lesser-known gem on a beautiful fjord-like gulf of the same name in Montenegro. It's a fairy-tale setting, where medieval spires rise dreamily over orange rooftops beside mountainous scenery. The landscapes grow ever more dramatic inland, not least in the Durmitor National Park, draped around the majestic Balkan Mountains.
Sibenik

Sibenik In Port: 26 June 2023

Sibenik is a historic city on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, and sits at the mouth of the River Krka. It is part of an Adriatic archipelago of 242 islands, islets and reefs lapped by crystal clear waters. Though lesser-known than some of the other cities along Croatia’s coast, Sibenik possesses much picturesque charm. Jutting into the deep natural harbour, it is a pleasing jumble of terracotta rooftops guarded by four imposing fortresses and mighty walls. Within these walls you will find lanes and passages winding up the hill and around the mediaeval centre.
Koper, Slovenia

Koper, Slovenia In Port: 27 June 2023

Located on the tip of Istria, Slovenia's main port was an island until the 19th century, but local history goes back much further. Called Aegida by the Greeks, Capris by the Romans and Justinopolis in Byzantine times, Koper was the influential city in the Venetian Empire and five mayors sat on the throne of the Venetian doges. Today monuments of this Golden Age line the cobblestone streets of an Old Town that boasts a wealth of architecture, cultural monuments and intriguing shops.
Venice

Venice Disembark: 28 June 2023

Can any city match up to the romance of Venice? As the warm sunset casts its balmy glow over the charming canals it's hard to imagine it possible. Explore the maze of markets and cafés by gondola before heading to Harry's Bar to sip its famous Bellini cocktail. It won't take long on one of Venice' peaceful canals, beneath a beautiful bridge, for you to fall for this extraordinary city's spell.
