    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Saturday, July 31, 2021 Venice, Italy Embark 5:00 PM

    Located at the head of the Adriatic Sea between the mouths of the Piave and Po Rivers, an intricate web of 118 tiny islands and canals make up the enchanting city of Venice in Italy. Considered to be an extremely beautiful and romantic destination, it is not surprising that Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music. One must take a gondola ride along some of the over 150 canals, including the Grand Canal. Be amazed at the numerous bridges – such as the Rialto bridge – and absorb the glorious renaissance architecture with its panorama of superbly detailed facades. learn more

    2 Sunday, August 1, 2021 Vodice, Croatia 9:00 AM 6:00 PM

    Vodice (population 9000) is Croatian town bordering on the Adriatic Sea. Its history goes back to Roman times. Numerous archaeological excavations have revealed the remains of Roman settlements and a Liburnian necropolis from the 4th C BC. For almost four centuries it was part of the Republic of Venice. learn more

    3 Monday, August 2, 2021 Kotor, Montenegro 8:00 AM 3:00 PM

    Located along one of Montenegro's most beautiful bays is picturesque Kotor. The bay is the deepest natural inlet in the Adriatic Sea, and the scenery around it is spectacular. Its well-preserved Old Town - surrounded by an impressive city wall - nestles at the head of southern Europe’s deepest sunken river valley. It is typical of the middle Age cities built between the 12th and 14th century. learn more

    4 Tuesday, August 3, 2021 Corfu, Greece 8:00 AM 9:00 PM

    Corfu Island, located just off the west coast of Greece, boasts some of the most stunning scenery in the Greek Isles. With its impressive landscapes, rich vegetation, long golden beaches, the elegant capital Corfu Town, and many traditional villages, it is not surprising that this island receives many visitors each year. The capital is possibly most impressive, due to the Venetian, French and English civilisations that are remembered for the architectural elements they have left behind. Be sure to visit the Achillion Palace with its picturesque gardens overlooking Corfu Town, and at least one of the many Greek churches and monasteries. learn more

    5 Wednesday, August 4, 2021 Zakynthos, Greece 8:00 AM 5:00 PM

    Zakynthos is the main city on the island of the same name, the third largest of the Ionian Islands in Greece. It is difficult to realise that the island was hit by a series of four earthquakes in 1953, an earthquake swarm on an almost daily basis in 2006, and an horrific forest fire in the same year. The island today is regarded as The Flower of the Orient and one of the most beautiful islands of the Ionians. The island is famous for its natural environment, especially the fact that it offers strict protection to the endangered sea turtle - Caretta-Caretta - that reproduce here. learn more

    6 Thursday, August 5, 2021 Nafplion, Greece 10:00 AM 11:00 PM

    Nafplion (with a variety of spellings), the first capital of Greece, is situated on the Peloponnese Peninsula just a two and a half hour drive from Athens. Its picturesque harbour, with two mountains crowned by medieval fortresses overlooking the town. The small island fortress called the Bourtzi that once protected the harbour presents a scene that will ever be remembered. The town’s history traces back to the prehistoric era when soldiers from here participated in the Argonautic expedition and the Trojan War alike. learn more

It is also an island with beautiful landscapes, scores of churches, some fascinating monuments, and windmills.

    Symi is the main town of a Greek island of the same name. Lying NW of the island of Rhodes, it has areas of significance in history and mythology. The town of Symi is divided in two parts: the harbourside one called Gialós, and the adjacent one on the slopes of the hills, called Chorió. Gialós is of two- and three-storey traditional stone houses, painted in all colours but mostly in indigo, ochre and terracotta, with red tiled roofs and cute little balconies with railings in the style peculiar to Symi. learn more

    Kusadasi is a resort town on Turkey's Aegean coast and the centre of the seaside district of the same name. While best known as a starting point for visiting Ephesus, once one of the most beautiful cities in the world with a history dating from 3000 BC, there’s also a delightful range of activities in town. Places of interest include: the City Walls, of which one gate remains to-day; the peninsula at the end of the bay with its castle and swimming beaches; several aqua parks with wave-pools and white-water slides; Ladies Beach, once segregated but now open to all; and Dilek Peninsula National Park.

    Antalya is the 'capital' of the Turkish Mediterranean Coast. It is a sprawling modern city, but Old Antalya which surrounds the Roman harbour, with its historic museum, and the many buildings - now restored as homes, boutique hotels, inns and restaurants - that date back to Ottoman and even Roman times, give it its own distinctive atmosphere. There are numerous fascinating archaeological sites to visit, or take a day excursion to one of the wonderful National Parks, and even experience some white water rafting, or you can simply enjoy the dramatic sea and mountain views. learn more

If time permits, visit the ancient city kingdom of Amathus to explore the ruins and its ancient port.
