You’ll board your home-on-the-water, Regent Seven Seas 6-star luxury ship, Voyager, in Venice on October 8. As evening falls, with this magnificent Italian city-showcase as the backdrop, your 7-night adventure begins.
You will explore the historic towns of Zadar, Croatia and Bari, Italy, see the unique combinations of architecture in the various structures and dwellings. Experience the daily lifestyle here and the pace of the Slavic and Italian people as you wander through these charming ports.
Enter the land of the mythical Gods – Greece – where we will explore the islands of Corfu, Santorini, Mykonos – each with its own personality and energy. Here, the sea surrounds you, with a myriad of unforgettable colors and light dancing on its surface. Donkeys (or the funicular) can take guests up cliffs to white-washed towns with winding cobblestone streets. Private beaches invite you to linger and relax, while boisterous restaurants filled with warm, fun-loving people call to you to come share their food, their wine, their stories. Stand in the original Olympic stadium (from Katakolon) and see where the Games, which were begun to honor the God Zeus, first began. Marvel at the centuries-old ruins that provide a glimpse of the sophisticated civilization that came before us.
You will disembark in Athens, center of Greek government and location of some of the most important archaeological wonders in the world. Imagine strolling along its streets to glance up and see the Acropolis, in all its magnificence, above. Perhaps you will consider staying a day or two in this fascinating city to add to the many unforgettable moments, sights and sounds this journey has provided.
