Adriatic & Aegean

History-rich itineraries and island hopping are always on the menu for Adriatic and Aegean voyages


From the sandy of shores of Corfu to the historical town of Dubrovnik, this region has a multitude of possibilities for guests. The iconic white buildings and zig-zag steps of Santorini offer picturesque views of the blue oceans below, while the Acropolis is, as-ever, a must-see for passengers visiting Athens, where they can also take part in visiting some of the most well-known monuments Greece has to offer.

Built on 120 small islands that are connected by more than 400 bridges, Venice is arguably Italy’s most unique and beguiling destination. St Mark’s, the grandest square, is dominated by the cathedral of the same name and is one of the world’s finest examples of Byzantine architecture. A longer stay provides time to do the main sights and then wander down the maze of side streets without a plan or timetable.


Part of the Turkish Riviera, this former sleepy fishing community is now a cosmopolitan holiday destination where clients can relax on the beach, party the night away and take in cultural attractions.

Island hopping

Renowned for its beautiful coastline and surrounding islands, which are all connected by ferries, clients can spend a few days hopping between islands such as Hvar, which is scented by lavender fields, Korcula with its vineyards and olive groves and Brac, famous for its golden horn-shaped beach.

Heraklion is Crete’s must-see sight. The vast ruined palace of ancient Knossos was the capital of Minoan Crete and home of the mythical Minotaur. Its treasures, including exquisite frescoes, were uncovered by British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans in the early 1900s and are now housed in Heraklion Archaeological Museum.
