Enjoy a full day tour of Venice.

Venice is a city unlike any other. No matter how often you've seen it in photos and films, the real thing is more dreamlike than you could imagine. With canals where streets should be, water shimmers everywhere. The fabulous palaces and churches reflect centuries of history in what was a wealthy trading center between Europe and the Orient. Getting lost in the narrow alleyways is a quintessential part of exploring Venice, but at some point you'll almost surely end up in Piazza San Marco, where tourists and locals congregate for a coffee or an aperitif.

Day 8 — Vodice (Sibenik), Croatia

Located midway along the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, Sibenik is the oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea. Its location at the mouth of the Krka River and directly onshore from the 150 clustered islands of the Kornati archipelago made it an important port from prehistoric times. The town has more than its share of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, not least of which is the impressive 15th century domed St. James Cathedral, the largest church in the world built completely of stone. The stone was all imported from the offshore islands, and the building is a testament to the fine-grained quality of the material and the skill of Croatian masons and sculptors. The 16th century St. Nicholas Fortress is also inscribed by UNESCO. St. Michael’s Fortress, dominating the skyline, is a 15th century structure that contains a church possibly dating from the 9th century. It has been adapted to modern use as a venue for musical and festival presentations. In summer the stone plaza in front of the cathedral is often the site of folk dancing or other entertainments. Many visitors to this area of Dalmatia opt for a day trip to the picturesque travertine cascades and pools of the Krka River in the Krka National Park, which contains Europe’s second-highest concentration of lavender.

Day 9 — Kotor, Montenegro

Kotor in a beautiful summer day, Montenegro

One of the best preserved medieval towns of the Adriatic, Kotor is protected by UNESCO. Between 1420 and 1797, the area was under the rule of the Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence can be seen in its architecture. The Gulf of Kotor is sometimes called the southernmost fjord in Europe, although it is actually a submerged river canyon. The overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovcen complete one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful landscapes.

Stay: Seabourn Odyssey

Day 10 — Kerkira, Nisos Kerkira (Corfu), Greece

A scant few miles off the Albanian coast lies the island of Corfu, one of the most richly endowed of all the Greek Isles. Praised by Homer in "The Odyssey" and selected by Shakespeare as the setting for "The Tempest," the island retains evidence of cultural heritage from each of its past rulers - Byzantium, Venice, France, Russia and Great Britain. Rolling acres of olive groves, small orchards of lemon and orange trees, tall cypress, oleander, and myrtle bushes lend a lush, verdant look to the island. While the oldest part of Corfu Town has cobblestone lanes so narrow only pedestrian travel is possible, the modern sector has wide avenues. Residents boast that its "Spianada" is the largest and most beautiful square in all Greece.

Stay: Seabourn Odyssey

Day 11 — Sami, Cephalonia, Greece

Located on the east coast of Kefalonia, Sami is home to beautiful beaches and pleasant cafés and tavernas around the harbor that provide an ideal setting to soak up the traditional Greek atmosphere. Situated on a hill to the south of town are the ruins of ancient Sami, where visitors will find a fascinating site consisting of artifacts spanning several different civilizations over thousands of years.

Stay: Seabourn Odyssey

Day 12 — Gythion (Sparta), Greece

Gythion, the small port town for Sparta, edges its way up the hillside, which surrounds the harbor. According to Homer, Paris and Helen spent their first night together here, on a tiny islet in the bay. To commemorate the occasion, Paris erected a shrine to Aphrodite, goddess of love, only to have it torn down by the vengeful Menelaus after he recaptured Helen. In its place Menelaus erected statues honoring Praxidica (Punishment) and Themis (Justice). Not far away, at the tip of the Peloponnese, lies the Mani, a distinctive area unlike anything else in Greece. This desolate region of underground lakes and rivers and windswept landscapes is strangely beautiful. To the north of Gythion lie Sparta and Mystra, well worth a visit.

Stay: Seabourn Odyssey

Day 13 — Nafplion, Greece

Held to be one of the loveliest small towns in all the islands, Navplion has a tradition and culture all its own. The sheltered location, below a rocky headland crowned by a Venetian fortress is perhaps unrivaled in Greece. After the Greek revolution of the early 19th century, Navplion served as the first modern capital. The neoclassical houses, large official buildings and carefully planned seafront streets all date from this period.

Day 14 — Piraeus (Athens), Greece
