7 Night Cruise sailing from Venice roundtrip aboard Azamara Quest.
Experience the classic beauty of the Mediterranean on this exceptional voyage. Begin in Venice and spend the day exploring its romantic waterways and St. Mark’s Square before a breathtaking sunset departure from port. In Ravenna, visit the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia and the stunning mosaics UNESCO calls “artistically perfect". Next up is Hvar, where you can stroll lavender fields, relax on pristine beaches and tour a vineyard—this is one of the top winemaking regions in Croatia. The city of Kotor in Montenegro offers maze-like cobblestone streets lined with bars, restaurants, shops, and hidden piazzas. Up for a challenge? Climb the 1,350 steps to the upper town walls and be rewarded with sweeping views of the city, and the medieval St. John’s Fortress.
After an extended stay in Kotor you're off to Dubrovnik to find paradise behind the massive stonewalls that protect winding streets, charming squares, and red-roofed buildings dating back to the 7th century. A late arrival in Koper means you'll be well rested and ready to explore this gateway to intercontinental adventures. Cross the border into the Italian coffee capital of Trieste for a cappuccino at Caffe San Marco, trek through the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Skocjan Caves, or simply roam the streets of Koper's Old Town. Return to Venice with one foot in the present, the other in the past.
Highlights of this cruise:
Venice is one of the world’s most beautiful cities, and arguably the most romantic. An independent city-state and major power during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, it was a center of commerce in silk, grain, and spices, and home to a wide range of interesting characters from Marco Polo to Casanova. Consisting of more than 100 small islands connected by arched bridges, its thoroughfares are canals, and transportation options are limited to boats and your own two feet. After the requisite gondola ride, do stroll the winding traffic-free streets along the canal sides – prime real estate for the palaces of the aristocracy of old.
To visit Dubrovnik is to step back in time to the Middle Ages. The town is one massive museum, its thick walls constructed from the 13th to the 17th century encircle the entire city, and contain within them a treasure trove of striking architecture – squares, fountains, palaces, churches, and monasteries, all built from the same stone, line streets free of motor vehicles. Once the only city-state on the Adriatic to rival Venice, Dubrovnik has long been a center for Croatian culture, and home to artists and scholars of all disciplines. It is possible to circumnavigate the city atop the medieval walls.
Don’t be surprised if you leave a piece of your heart in Kotor. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the old town is filled with churches, shops, bars, restaurants, and hidden piazzas. (The latter are perfect for enjoying a nice glass of Montenegrin wine like the subtle red Vranac or dry white Krstač.) The entire city is surrounded by stone, both in the form of imposing Mount Saint John and by towering ancient walls, creating a cozy feeling of protection when you walk the cobblestone streets.
And speaking of cobblestone streets, the maze-like arrangement can confuse even the locals, so don’t be too concerned if you take a wrong turn or two. Luckily, landmarks like the 12th century St. Tryphon Cathedral, and the Church of Our Lady of Health stand tall in the sky and can help guide you. When in doubt, just stick to the left (or right); the triangular layout will eventually lead you back to the main entrance, marked by the 16th century Sea Gate.
If you’re up for a challenge, climb the 1,350 steps to the top of the upper town walls. Standing nearly three miles above the city, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the entire city and bay, as well as the medieval St. John’s fortress.
