DESTINATION INFORMATION

Venice- Venice, home of romance, well known as the city of water, also knows as “La Serenissima.” The port of Venice and the city itself looks out towards the Adriatic Sea. The city of the Doges is situated in the middle of a lagoon, has more canals than roads and boasts incredible beauty and a unique charm derived from centuries of history. The best way to see the city and to discover and admire the palaces is to travel along the canals in a gondola. This will take you to Piazza San Marco, the site of the Doge’s Palace, a jewel of Venetian architecture. Alternatively, art lovers can explore the Pinault Foundation in the Palazzo Grassi, before continuing with their cruise in the Mediterranean.

Bari- Bari is the Sun of Italy. The port of Bari, on the Adriatic coast, is primarily a passenger port. During the stop in Bari, visit this historic city and its surroundings, especially Matera, designated by UNESCO as the 2019 European Capital of Culture.

Corfu- Full of Mediterranean charm, Corfu perfectly expresses the classical concept of beauty tied to these places. Today it’s a popular tourist destination that has maintained high standards of quality and tranquillity. The Port of Corfu, Neo Limani, is just a few minutes’ walk from the city centre, so easy to reach  from the quayside. Entrance to the town lies at the foot of the New Fortress. At this point, stopping at Corfu lets you roam the narrow streets lined with tourist shops. Complete your tour of the island with total immersion in the lush greenery: olive trees, orange trees, cypresses as well as cultural events in the heart of the walled city are the norm!

Santorini- The cliffs of Santorini island shine with the bright white reflection from the houses that dominate the Mediterranean from the top of their summit. Upon arrival at the port of Santorini, you will be enchanted by the charm of the lagoon that surrounds this beautiful volcanic island. The harmony between the crystal blue water and the white villages located at the top of the cliffs is exceptional. Make the most of your trip to Santorini by visiting the lava beaches. Their black color makes them truly spectacular. Archaeology lovers should not miss the chance to visit Akotiri. Excavations have unearthed Minoan ruins and a city that dates back to the Cycladic civilization.

Mykonos- A scooter ride to the beaches of Mykonos will allow you to discover the beauty of the island with ease. You can enjoy a drink with a view of the windmills. After docking at the old port of Mykonos, enjoy the numerous natural coves, beaches and cliffs of this beautiful island. Take advantage of the break to stroll through the maze of streets and alleys where you can discover the beauty of the architecture and the layout of the city. The small white houses with shutters as blue as the sky, the pigeon houses and the numerous small churches of Mykonos will simply enchant you.

Dubrovnik- Dubrovnik is located in the south of Croatia, on the Dalmatian coast, and is protected from the bora and scirocco. This means that its climate is pleasant, even in the summer months. Its sea is among the cleanest and bluest in the world and, breathing deeply on the coast, you cannot help but feel the scent of pine trees, which surround the beaches and cool the hottest hours of the day. The beaches, amongst the most beautiful of the whole of Croatia, are uncrowded and perfect for romantic evenings by the sea.
