Described by many as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice, or Venezia in Italian, has been an important port city throughout history. Founded in the early 400s A.D., this city has been renowned for its beauty, architecture, musical and artistic culture, and of course its strategic maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Stretched across 117 small islands in the Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea, Venice was a wealthy city throughout most of its history; while tourism has been a major sector of its industry since the 18th century. Venice continues to impress its visitors as one of the most visited destinations in Italy, if not the entire Mediterranean!

Jul 3 – Thu Dubrovnik – Croatia 08:00 Overnight
A Croatian seaport city on the Adriatic coast, Dubrovnik is one of the most prominent destinations on the Adriatic. The Republic of Ragusa, as Dubrovnik was called in the Middle Ages, joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1979; it was a Maritime Republic (together with Amalfi, Pisa, Genoa, Venice and other Italian cities), and became the only eastern Adriatic city-state to rival Venice. The city has always been based on maritime trade, and it achieved and prospered a high level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries.
Dubrovnik offers its visitors many incredible old buildings, such as the Arboretum Trsteno, the oldest arboretum in the world, which dates back to before 1492. Also, the third oldest European pharmacy is located in the city, which dates back to 1317 (still in operation today)! In Dubrovnik’s bay there is a 72-hectare wooded island of Lokrum, where according to legend, Richard the Lionheart was cast ashore after being shipwrecked in 1192 - this island includes a fortress, botanical garden, monastery and naturist beach. Some excellent beaches to consider while in Dubrovnik are Banje, Dubrovnik's main public beach, home to the East-West Beach Club, or Copacabana Beach, a stony beach on the Lapad peninsula, named after the popular beach in Rio de Janeiro.
Jul 4 – Fri Dubrovnik – Croatia   06:00
Chios is the fifth largest of the Greek islands, situated in the eastern Aegean Sea, only about five miles off the coast of Turkey. The island is known for its strong merchant shipping community, its production of mastic gum and its picturesque medieval villages. It is also home to Nea Moni ("New Monastery"), an 11th century monastery, which has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is famous for its beautiful mosaics. Chios Town, the island’s administrative, cultural and educational center is located on the eastern coast.  Although the town experienced major damages and lost a great part of its beautiful architecture in a disastrous earthquake in 1881, a part of the old city still remains, hosting Neoclassical buildings, mosques as well as buildings with a strong Arabic influence. North of Chios Town lies the suburb of Vrontados, which claims to be the birthplace of the great poet Homer - a theory that is supported by an archaeological site known as "Teacher's Rock".
Jul 4 – Fri Kotor – Montenegro 10:00 19:00
Located in a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor, Kotor is an old Mediterranean port on the coast of Montenegro. As one of the best preserved medieval towns in the Adriatic, surrounded by impressive city walls built by the Republic of Venice, Kotor has been honored with being title a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in the shadow of the impressive St. John’s Hill, as one approaches the shores of Kotor, they can’t help but be in awe of the incredible natural landscape and of course of the picturesque city itself – it is immediately obvious that you have come to one of the world’s most beautiful bays.

  Sorrento is a small town located in southern Italy, in the Gulf of Naples. Thanks to its geographical shape, suspended between green hills and the blue of the sea, this area has always been a great attraction. It is famous for the production of limoncello, a digestif made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water and sugar. Some other agricultural production includes citrus fruit, wine, nuts and olives. Overlooking the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius and the Isle of Capri, this small town fascinates its visitors with its breathtaking views and landscapes.
