Fly from the UK and embark Viking Star in Venice. Choose from an optional nighttime gondola ride along the Grand Canal, an opera performance at the Palazzo Zeno, a private visit to the Renaissance-style Palazzo Nani Bernado and a trip to historic Padua.

Day 2 - Venice

Explore central Venice on a leisurely cruise past magnificent waterside palazzos and narrow canals, followed by a guided walk to beautiful St Mark's Square. There will be time to explore the city's highlights at leisure, including St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. Optional tours include an excursion to the beautiful islands of Murano and Burano, a guided visit to the hidden passages of the Doge's Palace, a visit to a Venetian carnival workshop and a trip to see the spectacular art collection in the Rezzonico Palace.

Day 3 - Split (Croatia)

Wander through the centre of Split, a city that is built around the Diocletian Palace, on a guided tour of the historic quarter, passing pre-Romanesque churches and Gothic chapels. Alternatively, drive through the Croatian countryside and cruise down the Cetina river, see the picturesque waterfalls and Dubrava Falconry Centre at Krka National Park or journey to the sacred pilgrimage site of Medjugorje. Perhaps explore Croatia in more depth with a trip to the coastal town of Trogir and the ancient site of Salona.

Day 4 - Dubrovnik

Explore the walled city of Dubrovnik with its bright terracotta-roofed buildings and baroque and renaissance spires. An included tour takes you high up with magnificent views of the city before exploring the city on foot along the marbled main street to the Dominican monastery. Alternatively enjoy panoramic views on a cable car ride. Food lovers can enjoy dinner at a family-owned vineyard, join the ship's Executive Chef on a visit to local market then help him prepare a regional dish back on board, or take a food-tasting trip along the coast to sample locally made cheese, ham, oils and wine followed by a cruise to the oyster and mussel beds in Ston, Croatia's oyster capital.

Day 5 - Kotor (Montenegro)

Kotor's city walls enclose a well-preserved medieval centre, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
