Rome to Athens, Greece
Discover Italy, the Adriatic and Greece from a new perspective during this 16-day winter cruise. Wander the winding medieval alleyways of Old Towns in Dubrovnik, Zadar, Koper and Kotor, where the stone pathways are worn smooth as glass by centuries of use. Stop by Dubrovnik’s 14th-century apothecary for a jar of their famous rose cream or climb the bell tower in Koper for panoramic views of the city before heading to nearby Piran, where you can visit the Postojna Cave, an impressive natural formation that was carved by the Pivka River over millions of years. During winter, Croatia’s picturesque farming villages become a feast of delicious organic wines, smoked hams, sausages, and homemade cheeses, with locals happy to show you their crafts and traditions from spinning silk to making olive oil. Two nights in Venice give you plenty of time to see St. Mark’s, enjoy a moonlight gondola ride, and check out the fine glassware and lace on Murano and Burano. Then it’s off to Delphi where the Oracle gave her cryptic and sometimes world-changing prophecies, followed by a transit of the sheer-walled Corinth Canal, a passage reserved for small ships like ours. Your odyssey ends in Athens, transformed by winter into a city of Athenians, with easy access to archeological sites and bakeries brimming with traditional winter treats.

Day 1: Rome
In this enchanting city the past and present intersect in perfect harmony. Casually intermingled among ancient ruins and majestic cathedrals are the trappings of a modern metropolis: Skyscrapers,cafes, boutiques selling designer footwear. But of course what you seek first in the heart of Rome is its breathtaking history.  A good place to begin is the Vatican, with its Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Works by Bernini, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, and Raphael are just a few of those on display, any one of which is worth hours of contemplation. Then the ancient ruins—Colosseum, Forum, Circus Maximus. And of course the Trevi Fountain for the obligatory coins promising your return to the Eternal City.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 2: Naples
Less than two hours from Rome, the port city of Naples was founded by the Greeks, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is unlike any other city in Italy.  It is a busy, bustling place where mini-operettas take place on street corners, Vespas scoot across the pedestrian piazzas, the small narrow streets are hanging thick with laundry and graffiti is everywhere. But Naples is full of archaeological treasures that are among the most impressive in the world, including breathtaking frescoes and sculptures. Its beautiful palaces, castles and churches make Rome look provincial. And the food in Naples is among the best you’ll find in Italy, serving decadent pizza, pasta, coffee, and seafood dishes you’ll never forget.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Messina (Taormina)
The cobblestone streets of Messina, Sicily, are the perfect launching point for an optional visit to nearby Taormina. Stroll along flower-filled streets in search of a delightful lunch or an artist’s palette of colorful gelati. The ancient Greek Theater is an ideal place to sit back and admire shimmering waters below and Mount Etna, languidly smoking in the distance.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Dubrovnik
While larger ships must pass by, we anchor right beyond the famous walled city so you can admire its beauty with every glance. Tender ashore and step right into Old Town, a UNESCO site where no cars are allowed, just eons of history. Capture the exhilarating views on your camera — and in your memory. End your day at the Buza Café (if you can find it) watching bold divers leap off the cliffs into the crystalline sea.

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Zadar
Something here will capture your heart. A Roman amphitheater, 9th century churches, and museums packed with Byzantine-era artworks crowd the peninsula that tidily contains the Old Town. It’s a tempting way to spend the day for sure. While away the day listening to Zadar’s giant Sea Organ, a haunting musical improv performed by the surging Adriatic or share a bench with a sun-drunk cat as you bite into a truffle.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 8: Venice
No other sea approach in the Adriatic raises goose bumps like Venice, a small ship exclusive where the entire city and its lagoon are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On your luxurious home-away-from home, you arrive already equipped with a sense of what it’s like to live in the city that’s neither land nor water. Add your own sigh to the Bridge of Sighs, sip a spritz al bitter as you plot your agenda, and let the water taxis do your navigating unless you don’t mind getting lost. Not such a bad prospect, with serendipitous discoveries around every corner.

Day 11: Koper, Slovenia
Koper, the largest city on Slovenia’s Adriatic coast, entices visitors with a blend of historical allure and seaside charm. It boasts Venetian-inspired architecture and medieval landmarks, like the Praetorian Palace and Cathedral of the Assumption. Walk along the busy harbor admiring the colorful boats or visit the lively Tito Square with its cafes and vibrant shops. Koper is also known for its seafood, merging Slovenian, Italian, and Mediterranean flavors. Koper is also the gateway to neighboring city, Piran, a coastal gem renowned for its captivating old town, charming streets, and stunning seaside vistas.

Day 14: Kotor
This is one of Montenegro’s most beautiful bays, and the approach offers one breathtaking fjord-like view after another. Just when you’ve reached your fill of blues and greens, the bright red rooftops of the medieval Old Town come into view. The entire area has been proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The charming streets of Old Town remain car free, filled with 12th century Baroque palaces and Romanesque churches. For a fresh perspective, climb to the fortress on the hill for a breathtaking vista. 
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 16: Delphi
Before there were fortune cookies there was the oracle of Delphi, dating back to 1400 B.C. The oracle gave cryptic guidance to the leaders of the day and was so highly respected that Delphi, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, became known as the center of the world. An optional tour lets you go exploring, from the Temple of Apollo to the Delphi Archaeological Museum, which contains some of the finest works of art in Greece. 
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 16: Corinth Canal
You’ll want to be on deck today as we transit the narrow Corinth Canal with other private yachts and Greek mail steamers. It’s a shortcut reserved for petite ships like ours, and as we cruise between the narrow limestone walls we are the envy of all the ancient Romans who once portaged their ships along this very route before there was a canal.
 
Canal transit time and duration is subject to change based on traffic and canal authorities.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 17: Athens, Greece
With 3,000 years of history, you can’t turn around in Athens without encountering the past. The Acropolis, a UNESCO site, the Plaka, and the Acropolis Museum are must-sees. But leave time if you can to climb Pnyx Hill for photos of the Parthenon at sunset, to buy your own set of Greek komboloi (worry beads), and to explore the metro stations that serve as mini-museums for the relics that are constantly being unearthed. 
Popular Highlights

Take in the beauty of the fjords as you sail into the Bay of Kotor, a UNESCO site.

Venice
Discover the Grand Canal and the magnificent Basilica Santa Maria della Salute lit up at night in Venice.
Zadar
Hear the haunting music of Zadar’s large sea organ, located along the city promenade.
