Itinerary

30. Jul 2018 Valletta (Malta)   18:00
 
This strategically important location has always attracted foreign conquerors. More than 7,000 years ago, a civilisation existed here, leaving behind enormous temple complexes. Just like proud Valletta, these are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Jean Parisot de la Valette, Grand Master of the Order of St John, founded a modern fortified city on a rock in 1566, between the two splendid natural ports of Marsamxett and Grand Harbour. Long rows of facades made from golden-yellow blocks of chalk stretch along the straight streets. Splendid Renaissance and Baroque buildings are evidence of riches and power, such as the Palace of the Grand Master and the impressive St John's Co-Cathedral.
   
31. Jul 2018 Syracuse/Sicily (Italy) 08:00 13:30
 
The municipal area of Syracuse boasts relics from cultural history going back more than three millennia. In ancient times, the city was the most powerful in the known world and was famed for its splendour. The island of Ortigia, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was where Syracuse began its rise as an ancient city. The huge cathedral is at the heart of the old town, magnificent palaces line the Piazza and wide promenades invite you to take a stroll. The archaeological park brings Greek and Roman history back to life. Yet Syracuse exudes southern Italian charm, with washing drying outside the windows.
   
01. Aug 2018 At Sea    
02. Aug 2018 Otranto (Italy) 13:00  
 
Otranto is the most easterly port in Italy and, due to its geographic location in the Adriatic, has had an extremely eventful history over the centuries. Not far away is Lecce, one of the most beautiful and affluent cities in southern Italy whose heyday was immortalised in stone over 200 years. The Baroque cityscape, in the idiosyncratic "barocco leccese" style, is characterised by a marble-like stone known as Lecce stone. The numerous palaces and the Basilica di Santa Croce have profusely decorated facades and art feels right at home here. There is good reason why people are proud of its evocative nickname, the Florence of the South.
   
03. Aug 2018 Otranto (Italy)   12:00
04. Aug 2018 Bari (Italy) 08:00 13:30
05. Aug 2018 Korcula (Croatia) 13:30 19:00
06. Aug 2018 At Sea    
07. Aug 2018 Trieste (Italy) 13:30 22:00
08. Aug 2018 Venice (Italy)   18:00
 
The floating city of Venice sits on millions of wooden piles and more than 400 bridges cross 150 canals. No other city possesses such an abundance of stunningly beautiful churches, monasteries, palaces and artistic treasures, and nowhere else has plaster that crumbles so elegantly. Venice is a unique work of art and, with its lagoon, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The gateway to the city is probably the most magical of any in the world. Slowly and majestically you glide past the proud palaces along the Grand Canal and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, giving you a long look at the fairytale setting of St Mark's Square with the Doge's Palace and Campanile.
   
08. Aug 2018 Venice (Italy) 08:00  
09. Aug 2018 Rovinj (Croatia) 08:00 14:00
 
Rovinj lies on the western coast of Istria. The old town was built on a hill and was part of the Republic of Venice for over 500 years. St Euphemia's Basilica sits above the terracotta roofs in solitary splendour and its tower has become the town's landmark. A stroll through the winding lanes transports you straight into the Mediterranean lifestyle and the region's culinary delights. Istrian wines seem to embody the sun's rich heat, the oak forests conceal precious white truffles and the region's olive oil is among the finest in the world.
   
10. Aug 2018 Split (Croatia) 17:00  
 
Dalmatia is the southernmost region of Croatia, and Split is its most beautiful cultural centre and secret capital. Gothic, Romanesque, Venetian, Roman and Baroque - a stroll through the old city of Split is like a journey through time. Diocletian's Palace, once the Emperor's retirement retreat, is at the heart of the beautiful old city, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A vast palace complex of around 30,000 square metres (322,917 square foot) was erected in just 10 years at the end of the 3rd century AD. A city within a city.
   
11. Aug 2018 Split (Croatia)   13:30
12. Aug 2018 Sibenik (Croatia) 07:00 13:30
 
The port of Sibenik is set in a sheltered bay on the Dalmatian coast in the estuary of the Krka, one of the most impressive waterways in Croatia. In the National Park, just a few kilometres (miles) away from Sibenik, the countryside seems both enchanted and savage. Rushing waters cascade picturesquely down from a limestone plateau into the depths below. The charming old town of Sibenik is impressive, mainly due to the massive Cathedral of St James, one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in the eastern Adriatic and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
   
13. Aug 2018 Rab (Croatia) 08:00 13:30
 
The port of Rab lies on the south-western coast of this Croatian island in Kvarner Bay. Its stunning position on a headland running up to a point is decidedly scenic. In the 12th century, the picturesque old town was surrounded by a defensive wall and pieces of this still survive. This enchanting town has managed to preserve its medieval look with narrow lanes and distinctive bell towers and, as a result, has remained exceptionally youthful and lively.
