Day 1: Venice, Italy | Embark

Stay overnight in Venice aboard a ship and explore its beauty. Renowned as the "Queen of the Adriatic" and "The Floating City," Venice is hailed as one of Europe's most romantic destinations.

Day 2: Venice, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The iconic image of Venice shows a city with no roads, only canals because it’s built on over 100 small islands in a lagoon amid the Adriatic Sea. In the heart of the city close to Piazza San Marco you will find the Bridge of Sighs, an architectural jewel amid so many historical wonders. Venetian cuisine is renowned throughout Italy for its high-quality seafood. Positioned within a lagoon, local chefs and restaurants have the advantage of fresh-caught fish directly from the source and bringing it straight to their tables.

Day 3: Ancona, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Sitting on Italy’s Adriatic coast, Ancona’s harbor invites you to explore a scene of turquoise waters and sprawling, verdant hills. Founded by Greek settlers around 387 BCE, its old town, Roman arches, Romanesque churches, archaeological artifacts, and Renaissance palazzi remind you of the city’s longstanding history. Towering above the town from Monte Guasco sits the Cattedrale di San Ciriaco, an 11th-century structure with prominent marble lions on its facade that creates an iconic image. Minutes away from the city center, a panoramic staircase leads down to the stunning stretch of Passetto Beach. Take the panoramic elevator for a breathtaking view and explore the caves carved into the rocks over 100 years ago. Nature lovers take pleasure in a walk along the promontory of Conero Regional Park, a leisurely path ideal for birdwatching and beautiful views of the Riviera.

Day 4: Hvar Island, Croatia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The port town of Hvar shares its name with the Croatian island, renowned as a prime summer destination for yachting. Considered the crown jewel of Croatia’s Dalmatian islands, Hvar has cultivated a reputation as rich in history, culture, literature, and natural monuments. Drink in the stunning landscapes as Hvar is covered in vast fields of ancient olive trees, lavender, and vineyards. Within its bounds, you will find the oldest town in the entirety of Croatia, Stari Grad, established by the ancient Greeks. For a picture-perfect seaside locale, head over to Dubovica Beach along the Adriatic Sea.

Day 5: Dubrovnik

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Along the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia lies Dubrovnik, a city well-known for its 16th-century Old Town. Filled with enchanting historic sites and containing a sense of stories past, the Croatian city has rightly earned its place on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Delve into the fantastical side of the city as you tour the streets that have become part of cinematic history. Take a break from history for a relaxing beach day with a quick ferry ride to the nearby Lokrum Island. Delve deep into the local culture with wine and delectable platters of meat and cheese.

Day 6: Kotor, Montenegro

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Along the Adriatic coast of Montenegro lies the fortified town of Kotor, known for its medieval old town with winding streets and historic squares, as well as its many Romanesque churches and Maritime Museum. For unbelievable views of the Bay of Kotor, hike to the top of San Giovanni Fortress. Stroll through the many vendors, taking in the sounds, scents, and colors as they call out their daily specials, produce, and homemade goods. Swim the stunning azure waters of the bay with a boat tour to the Blue Cave.

Day 7: Corfu, Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the north of the Ionian Sea lies Corfu, a Greek island with history and cultural influence from the French, Venetians, and the English, all leading to its modern-day, cosmopolitan reputation. While most Greek Isles are associated with ancient ruins, Corfu offers a different historical lens with monuments like Achilleion Palace. It also holds a quaint side with surrounding villages to explore like the charming ghost town of Old Perithia in Kasiopi. It’s not a trip to Greece without visiting some of Corfu’s stunning beaches like Canal d’Amour or Paleokastritsa.

Day 8: Itea (Delphi), Greece

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Before heading into the legendary Delphi, you can dock in the charming coastal town of Itea. Feel free to explore Miami Beach (not to be confused with Florida’s), its prestigious Blue Flag beach. The expansive local fields of Amfissa olive trees create a lush, green landscape known as the “sea of olives.” The peak of Mount Parnassus in the distance adds to the sense of wonder in this picturesque scenery made for an impromptu photo shoot.

When you’re ready for some ruins, the Oracle at Delphi awaits. To explore the Sanctuary of Apollo and other ancient remnants, you must climb the slopes of the mountain on a path known as the Sacred Way. It is here you will gaze upon what’s called the navel of the world.

As you stand among the crumbling stones that make up the Athenian Treasury and ancient stadium, you cannot help but get swept back in time. There is a great sense of adventure that makes you feel like a certain iconic archaeologist as you step over the stones the ancient Greeks once walked. Panoramic views behind the remaining structures create a richer picture of life before modern times. The surrounding environment creates a harmonious balance between nature and manmade marvels.

Delphi is a place where history and mythology become entangled, where one cannot exist without the other. Everything feels simpler. But that does not make it any less inspiring. It is a privilege to witness these ancient Greek ruins that have stood the test of time.

Day 9: Corinth Canal Transit | Athens

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Standing at 70 feet wide at sea level, 81 feet wide at its top level, 300 feet tall, and only about four miles long, the sheer limestone cliffs of the famous Corinth Canal can only be sailed by smaller ships and boats. The intimate size of our yachts allows us to freely navigate it for an adventurous expedition. Standing on deck as we make our way through the narrow passage, its awe-inspiring perspective will invoke a true sense of exploration.

Athens remains an iconic city, blending ancient pathways with modern streets leading to monumental sites like the Acropolis. Its rich history and mythology coexist with contemporary life, offering a timeless experience.

Day 10: Athens, Piraeus, Greece | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Disembark your ship after breakfast and explore Athens before continuing on your adventures or returning home.
