Dreaming Of Dalmatia Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Venice (Italy)

Fly from the UK and embark your ship in Venice.

Day 2 - Zadar (Croatia)

Found on the northern Dalmatian coast of Croatia, Zadar is rich with thousands of years of history. Ruled at various times by the Romans, Ostrogoths, and Byzantium, the city became a center of commerce and naval power rivaling that of Venice. Today, Zadar’s history, culture, and architecture draw visitors from around the world, as does Plitvice National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Excursions include wine tasting in the fertile hinterland, a visit to the island of Pag, and a tour of Krka National Park.

Day 3 - Kotor (Montenegro)

Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro, located in a most secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor. The old port, surrounded by an impressive city wall built by the House of Nemanjicc, is very well preserved and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Numerous other attractions include the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon in the old town (built in 1166), and ancient walls which stretch directly above the city. Nightlife also attracts tourists to Kotor with pubs, taverns, cafes, and nightclubs. Perhaps enjoy a classical performance in Prcanj, a panoramic tour of Montenegro, or a cooking class in Klinci village.

Day 4 - Durrës (Albania)

Discover ancient Durres with its modern new resort coastline. Visit the Archaeological Museum on the waterfront for an impressive historical overview. Then explore the remains of the public baths, the aqueduct and the largest Roman amphitheater in the Balkans dating back to the 7th Century. Ahmet Zogu’s Villa, perched atop the Durres hill, offers splendid views of the Adriatic. Excursions include a visit to the National Historical Museum, a trip to Berat, nicknamed the 'City of a Thousand Windows', and a tour showcasing the best of Kruja and Tirana.

Day 5 - Corfu (Greece)

Legendary Corfu is a lush and romantic island, written about by Homer in his famous Odyssey. The island’s history is full of battles, indicative of Corfu’s turbulent position that lasted until modern times with unification with modern Greece in 1864. Corfu offers a combination of cosmopolitan and time-honored Greece. Perhaps head to the magnificent Archilleion Palace, explore a 15th-century fortress which overlooks Corfu's old town, or travel to Glyfada Beach.

Day 6 - Messina (Italy) - Cruising the Strait of Messina

Messina, the third largest city in Sicily, was the most important port of departure for European knights on their way to the Crusades in the Middle Ages. Today, this extensively rebuilt port city still boasts many historically and architecturally significant landmarks, particularly the renowned cathedral with its unusual astronomical clock, the 12th century Catania Church and the ornate Teatro Vittorio Emanuele. Excursions include a trip to Taormina and its impressive Greco-Roman theatre, a wine tasting near the base of Mount Etna, and a tour of popular filming locations. Later, cruise the Strait of Messina.

Day 7 - Sorrento

Sorrento is surely one of the world’s most beautiful towns, built on a coast with breathtaking views and landscapes. Yet it is far from a frivolous vacation destination. The houses, people and the entire region are filled with a history and culture so deep that it can be traced back to the 11th century BC. Overlooking the bay of Naples, the town is the key point on the Sorrentine Peninsula and is one of the most popular destinations of the entire Campania region. Perhaps cruise aboard a jetfoil across the Gulf of Naples to the island of Capri, head to the well-preserved remains of UNESCO-listed Pompeii, or hike through the wilds of the Sorrentine Peninsula.
