SUNDAY - OCTOBER 20

VENICE, ITALY
DEPART 5PM

To prepare you for the journey of a life time, guests fly to the historic Italian City of Venice. Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs. This tour of Venice will be an unforgettable experience.

MONDAY - OCTOBER 21

BARI, ITALY
11AM - 5PM

Bari is a port city on the Adriatic Sea, and the capital of southern Italy’s Puglia region. Its mazelike old town, Barivecchia, occupies a headland between 2 harbors. Surrounded by narrow streets, the 11th-century Basilica di San Nicola, a key pilgrimage site, holds some of St. Nicholas’ remains. To the south, the Murat quarter has stately 19th-century architecture, a promenade and pedestrianized shopping areas. This excursion will be an awesome experience!

TUESDAY - OCTOBER 22

KATAKOLON, GREECE
11AM - 5PM

Katakolo is a seaside town in the municipality of Pyrgos in western Elis, Greece. It is situated on a headland overlooking the Ionian Sea and separating the Gulf of Kyparissia from the rest of the Ionian. It is 11 km west of Pyrgos. It’s also the gateway to ancient Olympia, the flame and founding place of the Olympic Games, and one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Shore excursions typically take in the highlights of the archaeological site, including the Temple of Zeus, the palaestra gymnasium, the archaeological museum, and the Olympic stadium, which held the first Olympic Games in 776 BC. Guests will have the opportunity to also visit the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology, enjoy a wine tasting at the Mercouri Winery, relax at Agios Andreas beach, or browse the many tourist shops along the main street.

WEDNESDAY - OCTOBER 23

SANTORINI, GREECE
8AM - 5PM

Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). They overlook the sea, small islands to the west and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles. The Greek island of Santorini (Thira) is in the southern Aegean Sea and actually consists of a group of islands. It is one of the most popular spots to visit in all of Greece, because of its brilliant blue roofs, but there are so many more things to do and attractions to see, than just the pretty domed buildings. Enjoy this amazing tour and take the best pictures of Santorini!

THURSDAY - OCTOBER 24

PIRAEUS (ATHENS), GREECE
7:30AM - 4:30PM

Piraeus is a port city in the region of Attica, Greece. Piraeus is located within the Athens urban area, 12 kilometres southwest from its city center, and lies along the east coast of the Saronic Gulf. Piraeus is one of the most important and densely inhabited cities in Greece. In a short distance from the country’s capital city, Athens, the city of Piraeus has been famous since classical times due to its strategic position and its port, which is the largest Greek port. Cultural interaction, a historical background, and significant location are factors that shape the identity of this fascinating area.

FRIDAY - OCTOBER 25

CORFU, GREECE
12:30PM - 6:30PM

Corfu, an island off Greece’s northwest coast in the Ionian Sea, is defined by rugged mountains and a resort-studded shoreline. Its cultural heritage reflects years spent under Venetian, French and British rule before it was united with Greece in 1864. Corfu Town, flanked by 2 imposing Venetian fortresses, features winding medieval lanes, a French-style arcade and the grand Palace of St. Michael and St. George.

SATURDAY - OCTOBER 26

KOTOR, MONTENEGRO
7AM - 1PM

Kotor is a fortified town on Montenegro’s Adriatic coast, in a bay near the limestone cliffs of Mt. Lovćen. Characterized by winding streets and squares, its medieval old town has several Romanesque churches, including Kotor Cathedral. It’s also home to the Maritime Museum, which explores local seafaring history. Sveti Đorđe, one of 2 tiny islands off the ancient town of Perast, features a centuries-old church.
