Day 1 Venice, Italy | Embark

Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic," "City of Water," "City of Masks," "City of Bridges," "The Floating City," and "City of Canals." It's widely considered to be one of Europe's most romantic cities. Founded in the 5th century, the city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic. Explore this charming city before boarding your ship and setting off on your journey. 

Day 2 Trieste, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Trieste is a city and seaport in northeastern Italy. It is situated towards the end of a narrow strip of Italian territory lying between the Adriatic Sea and Slovenia, which lies almost immediately south and east of the city. Trieste is located at the head of the Gulf of Trieste and throughout history it has been influenced by its location at the crossroads of Latin, Slavic, and Germanic cultures. Once a very influential and powerful centre of politics, literature, music, art and culture under Austrian-Hungarian dominion, its importance fell into decline towards the end of the 20th century, and today, Trieste is often forgotten as tourists head off to the big Italian cities like Rome and Milan. It is, however, a very charming underestimated city, with a quiet and lovely almost Eastern European atmosphere, several pubs and cafes, some stunning architecture and a beautiful sea view. It was also, for a while, the residence of famous Irish writer James Joyce.
 

Day 3 Koper, Slovenia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Slovenia’s largest town, Koper has been a well-kept secret. As you explore all of the shopping and industrial areas, you’ll notice a medieval ambiance that is well worth the experience.

Day 4 Trogir, Croatia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
UNESCO-awarded Trogir is considered to be one of the oldest and most exciting villages along the Adriatic Coast. This town is located on a small island that lies between the mainland and Ciovo and sports some impressive medieval walls and a collection of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture. 

Day 5 Split, Croatia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Split is one of the oldest cities in the area and the second largest city behind Dubrovnik in Croatia. The Diocletian’s Palace is not only listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site but is also considered to be one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments. This city is believed to be over 1,700 years old, while archaeological research relates the settling to the ancient Greek colony of Aspalathos (6th century BC) establishes the city as being several hundred years older. 

Day 6 Neum, Bosnia & Herzegovina

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s only coastal town. Neum is the country’s only access point to the Adriatic Sea. Its peaceful bay offers the perfect conditions for water activities, including scuba diving, yachting, jet skiing and more. Visitors are enthralled by this under-the-radar destination’s history and spectacular natural sights. Neum’s relaxing beaches are one of the region’s best-kept secrets.
 

Day 7 Dubrovnik, Croatia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Dubrovnik is one of the most prominent destinations in the Adriatic Sea, in the region of Dalmatia. It was awarded World UNESCO Heritage status in 1979 and is considered to be among the 10 best medieval walled cities in the world. SeaDream anchors off the walled city as a port of call and tenders directly to the town gate. 

Day 8 Kotor, Montenegro

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. The old port of Kotor is surrounded by an impressive city wall built by the Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence remains dominant among the architectural influences. In 1979 the Bay of Kotor, City of Kotor, and the surrounding territory were listed in the UNESCO Heritage as a Cultural Site. Enjoy an optional excursion such as a walking discovery tour, or learn about the heritage and countryside of Montenegro. For the active guests, there’s incredible biking along the coast as well as a hike up to the fortress. 

Day 9 Ksamil, Albania

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Cherish a rare opportunity to visit this almost unknown, picture-perfect destination, a resort village uniquely situated within Albania’s Butrint National Park. Embraced by the narrow Strait of Corfu to the west and the saltwater Lake Butrint to the east, Ksamil offers ample opportunities for exploration both on land and in the sea. Near the main beaches, several small islands emerge from the impossibly crystalline water, readily accessible by kayak, paddleboat or even an energizing swim. Within the park, well-tended paths lead to the ancient Greek and Roman city of Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage site that contains an enchanting 3rd-century BC theater still in use today. Other highlights include the Roman forum, the Sanctuary of Asclepius, an early Christian basilica and the remarkable mosaic floor of the baptisterium. You’ll discover that the Venetians also left their mark, constructing an imposing square tower and a castle that houses an absorbing archeological museum. From atop the fortifications, revel in far-reaching panoramic vistas of the park’s glistening waterways, forested hills and the distant mountains beyond.
 

Day 10 Itea, Greece | Transit Corinth Canal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

So narrow! So dramatic! The canal was first completed in 1893, despite previous attempts from ancient times - the first plans date to 602 BC.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
