With 118 islands separated by more than 150 waterways, this is the original Venice, the canal-laced city that all the others are compared to. See the heralded Bridge of Sighs and St. Mark´s Square. Enjoy a romantic ride in a gondola, or visit the nearby island of Murano, where artisans create its world famous glass.
Day 2:Dubrovnik, Croatia
Inspite of turbulence in its recent past, this walled medieval city on the Dalmatian Coast has been miraculously preserved for the world to admire. Its ancient town and harbor, palaces, cathedrals and monasteries stand as they have for centuries. Step back in time along its narrow, cobbled lanes to peer back through a thousand years of history, with no neon signs of noisy traffic to mar the view.
Day 3: Relaxing Day at Sea

Tread in the footsteps of the Ancient Greeks in the fascinating city of Athens. See the dazzling architecture of the Acropolis and unearth Greek myths in the fascinating museums, all in the midst of this bustling capital.

Day 6: Relaxing Day at Sea                 
Day 7: Split, Croatia
When enjoying a cup of coffee in the shade of the mausoleum, you are probably sitting in the living room of the Roman Emperor Diocletian who ruled the Roman Empire from 284 to 305, as Split’s city centre occupies the site of his former palace. Pre-Romanesque churches live alongside Gothic chapels where the halls once stood and around the open peristyle, cafés and shops are packed in. On from Roman times and into the Middle Ages. In the port of Trogir, a labyrinth of cobblestone streets and medieval religious art awaits you to top it all off.
Day 8: Venice, Italy

Optional Tours

Ephesus Private Tour
The ancient city of Ephesus is a must-visit destination while you're in port in Kusadasi. On this private shore excursion, you will visit the ruins of the former Roman capital and learn about the history of its monuments and buildings from your private guide. You will also see the site of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the place where the Virgin Mary spent her final days.

• See the site of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
• Find exciting historical data and Roman stories from your private local guide

When you disembark your cruise ship at the Kusadasi port, meet your private guide and make your way to the ancient city of Ephesus. On arrival, you will find yourself in front of the Magnesia Gate, built to the side of the road that connected Ephesus with Magnesia. Enter Ephesus through this gate, which pedestrians and horses and chariots used to make their way into the city.
Inside the city, tour the sites with your guide. You’ll see the Celsus Library, one of the most beautiful structures in Ephesus. It had capacity to hold more than 12,000 scrolls. The library is also a monumental tomb for Gaius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus, the governor of the province of Asia, whose grave is located beneath the ground floor.
Your guide will lead you to the Odeon, the Fountain of Trajan and the Great Theater and tell you historical facts and entertaining stories about these ancient sites. See the Temple of Hadrian, which holds three panels depicting the mythological foundation of Ephesus.

Lastly, visit the House of the Virgin Mary. Recognized by the Vatican as the place where the Virgin Mary spent her last days, this small house is a typical Roman construction, completely made of stone. The original two-story house consisted of several rooms, but today only the central part of the house and a room on the right of the altar are open to visitors, giving it the look of a church rather than a house.
