Cruise: Venice to Athens Duration: 13 days Date: 19-Sep-2019

Take an unforgettable journey between the two gems of art history Venice and Athens. In Urbino, discover the great masterpieces of the Renaissance, then visit Diocletian’s massive mausoleum in Split, before cruising through the natural wonder of Kotor Bay to the classical ruins of Butrint in Albania. See ancient Olympia, birthplace of the Olympics, then spend a relaxing evening ashore in the historic port of Pylos. Tour Monemvasia, the “Gibraltar of the Aegean”, a tiny municipality joined to the mainland by a single causeway. Stroll around the carless idyll of Hydra, one of Greece’s most charming and picturesque islands, then arrive in Athens for a two-night hotel stay, giving you plenty of time to see the capital’s magnificent classical treasures, including, of course, the Acropolis.
