Venice to Athens Itinerary

Day 1 - Venice (Italy)

Embark your ship in Venice.

Day 2 - Cres (Croatia)

The stunning island of Cres is located in the northern part of the Kvarner Bay. It has an impressive 16th-century Venetian Tower and Arsan Palace which houses the fascinating Cres Museum.

Day 3 - Hvar

The heavenly scent of lavender perfumes the air in the fields and valleys around the island of Hvar. Idyllically located just off the Dalmatian coast, the island and the little port named after it have been a favourite getaway ever since the time of the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians and even Austro-Hungarian royalty.

Day 4 - Dubrovnik

It was George Bernard Shaw who said, 'Those who seek paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik.' Indeed, Dubrovnik is a treasure by any measure made more precious by its miraculous restoration. Crowned by the Minceta Tower, the 10th-century city walls are the proud symbol of Dubrovnik's colourful history.

Day 5 - Kotor (Montenegro)

This stunning rock-walled chasm splitting the coastal mountains of Montenegro is the longest arm of the sea in Southern Europe. Boka harbours one of the prettiest, unspoiled towns you'll ever see, the medieval city of Kotor. Founded by the Romans, fortified during the Byzantine era, then ruled by Venice for much of its history, Kotor has been naturally preserved by its isolation.

Day 6 - Corfu (Greece)

The most lush (and some say the loveliest) of all the Greek Islands, Corfu lies just a stone's throw from the Albanian coast. Nowhere is the stunning natural beauty of Corfu more evident than in the small village of Paleocastritsa, where legend says Odysseus was washed ashore to be rescued by Nausicaa.

Day 7 - Katakalon

Katakalon lies on the Greek coast overlooking the Ionian Sea. It is the gateway to Olympia, home to the archaeological site where the Olympics were first held.

Day 8 - At Sea

A day at sea and the chance to relax and enjoy the comforts of your ship.

Day 9 - Santorini

The island of Santorini is perhaps the most breathtaking of all the Greek Islands. Around 1500 BC, a volcanic eruption destroyed the centre of the island, leaving a crescent shaped rim of cliffs around a harbour formed in the volcano's caldera.

Day 10 - Mykonos

One of the most cosmopolitan of all the Greek Islands, Mykonos is a contrast of rocky hills and beautiful beaches. Hora, the capital, spreads around a colourful harbour, a popular meeting place, overlooked by a variety of tavernas, in which fishing boats nestle side by side with luxury yachts.

Day 11 - Athens

Disembark in Athens.

On Jul 2021 departure on Royal Clipper, Day 4 is spent in Kotor and Day 5 in Dubrovnik. The Captain reserves the right to alter the itinerary to suit wind and weather conditions.

Crowned by the Minceta Tower, the 10th-century city walls are the proud symbol of Dubrovnik's colourful history.

Day 9 - Korcula

Framed by dense green forests of allepo pine and twisted cypress, the red tile roofs of Korcula, whose most famous native son was Marco Polo, form an inviting picture. The pale wheat coloured stone Cathedral of St. Mark houses a treasure trove of Dalmatian and Italian art. Walk through the towering Land Gate for a great view of the town.

Day 10 - Hvar

The heavenly scent of lavender perfumes the air in the fields and valleys around the island of Hvar. Idyllically located just off the Dalmatian coast, the island and the little port named after it have been a favourite getaway ever since the time of the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians and even Austro-Hungarian royalty.

The stunning island of Cres is located in the northern part of the Kvarner Bay. It has an impressive 16th-century Venetian Tower and Arsan Palace which houses the fascinating Cres Museum.

Day 12 - Venice (Italy)

Disembark your ship.

The Captain reserves the right to alter the itinerary to suit wind and weather conditions. 3 Aug 2021 itinerary varies slightly. There is a visit to Rhodes but no visit to Korcula.
