Days 1-3: Venice

You’ll start your escape in canal-laced Venice. On arrival, head to your hotel, Smart Hotel Holiday Mestre Venice to check in, before setting out right away to wander the maze of Venice’s streets and canals. Enjoy a guided walk of the city’s highlights plus a gondola tour to sense the true atmosphere of this incomparable place. (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 4: Venice - Bari

After two days enjoying the wonders of the floating city its time to board your seven-night cruise. First stop is Bari, the capital of Italy’s Puglia region and a stunning port city.

Day 5: Bari - Katakolon

Next, you’ll leave Italy behind, making for the white and blue speckled hillsides and islands of Greece. Dock for the day in Katakolon, a port city just a short journey from Ancient Olympia. Examine the archaeological sites or visit the Museum of Ancient Greek technology before returning to the ship. (Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner)

Day 6: Katakolon - Santorini

Then, you’ll move on to the iconically Greek Island of Santorini. Admire the trademark white and blue cubiform houses, climb high up the hillside to visit Ancient Thera, or spend your day topping up your tan on one of the picturesque beaches. (Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner)

Day 7: Santorini - Piraeus (Athens)

Today you’ll dock into Piraeus early, giving you the whole day to explore Athens to your heart’s content. Visit the many fascinating ancient ruins in the city, including, of course, the beautiful Acropolis. Learn more at the Acropolis Museum before retiring to a coffee shop in nearby Monistiraki for the afternoon. (Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner)

Day 8: Piraeus - Corfu

After a morning at sea, spend an afternoon on the mountainous island of Crete. Enjoy the port town and city of Kerkyra, laze on one of the many sandy beaches or head further inland to find fascinating historic fortresses, monasteries and churches. (Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner)

Day 9: Corfu - Kotor

Montenegro’s capital, Kotor, is up next and is the last stop before you return to Venice. Spend a morning here hiking on Mount Lovćen or venture into town to admire the Romanesque churches and medieval winding streets. (Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner)
