Venice & the Dalmatian Coast Cruise

Day 1

    Venice, Italy / Embark

    Embark the luxurious L'Austral this afternoon.

    Day 2

      Sibenik, Croatia

      The unspoiled beauty of this rugged coastline bleached by the salt and bordered by crystal clear blue sea transforms Sibenik (Croatia) into a giant aquarium. The nearby thousandyear- old town of Krka was founded by Croatian princes in the 9th and 10th centuries, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

      Day 3

        Split, Croatia / Korcula, Croatia

        Along the Dalmatian coast, this ancient former imperial residence reveals all: fortified walls, towers, temples, palaces and baths. A museum in itself, Split (Croatia) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to Diocletian's famous Palace.

        Day 4

          Dubrovnik, Croatia

          Dubrovnik (Croatia) has preserved its rich architectural heritage, and its many palaces, monuments and white stone churches are in perfect harmony. Long considered as a rival to Venice, traces of its illustrious past are to be found throughout the city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

          Day 5

            Kotor, Montenegro

            The fortified town of Kotor (Montenegro) is located at the end of a complex series of bays surrounded by limestone massifs in a magnificent region of Montenegro.

            Day 6

              Hvar, Croatia

              A mild sunny climate has earned Hvar (Croatia) the epithet “Croatia’s Madeira”. The old town cradled in the bay boasts many remarkable monuments, all of which bear witness to a rich history influenced by Gothic and Renaissance art.

              Day 7

                Pula, Croatia & Rovinj, Croatia

                Pula (Croatia) invites you to a journey back in time. More than any other village in Croatia, Pula is a worthy heir to the Roman Empire. Timeless beauty and a truly exceptional architectural heritage is to be found here. More than anywhere else, the ancient ruins seem to have survived the centuries without having aged. You will discover in Pula a culture which dominated Europe for more than five centuries.

                In days gone by, Rovinj (Croatia) was a peaceful fishing port on the Istria Peninsula. Today its picturesque narrow streets lead you down to a marina where fishing boats jostle comfortably alongside modern yachts.

                Day 8

                  Venice, Italy / Disembark
