Ports of Call

Venice (Ravenna), Italy - Located on the Adriatic coast in North-East Italy, Ravenna was briefly the capital of the Roman Empire and later the Italian capital of the Byzantine Empire. During this time, incredible mosaics were constructed throughout the city. Described as a symphony of color in Dante's Divine Comedy, Ravenna's well-preserved mosaics are some of the finest remaining in the Western world.

Dubrovnik, Croatia - Thick 16th-century stone walls encase the entire Old Town of Dubrovnik. But there are no boundaries on the endless adventures you’ll discover among its orange-roofed ramparts. With a made-for-TV appeal— Game of Thrones was actually filmed here— the city commands your attention with the perfectly preserved Rector’s Palace, elaborate Onofrio’s Fountain, and baroque St. Blaise’s Church, named after the city’s patron saint. You can browse museum collections showcasing Croatian artwork, period furniture and shipbuilding traditions. Stand in awe of the Franciscan Monastery library’s 30,000 volumes. Or to get your heart pumping, go cliff diving into the sea and kayak crystal blue waters, with the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ shimmering in the distance.

Zadar, Croatia - Zadar is blessed with beautiful natural surroundings. The city faces an Adriatic archipelago that is one of the best sailing areas in the world. With its mild winters and warm summer, Zadar offers inhabitants and visitors an excellent environment for work and leisure.

Zadar is bordered by four national parks: the untouched Kornati Islands, the breathtaking Velebit mountains, the winding Krka River and the peaceful Plitvice Lakes. Other natural sites include the canyon of the river Zrmanja and the caves at Cerovac. These places are ideal for swimming, diving, boating, surfing, tracking, climbing and even skiing.

Kotor, Montenegro - Though small, this city is vibrant and shining and its people are happy to share their city with all who come.

Corfu, Greece - Corfu greets you with sunny beaches, miles of cypress groves and the opulent villas of 19th century European royalty.

Zakynthos, Greece - A Greek island in the Ionian Sea, the popular summer resort Zakynthos is also known by its Italian name, Zante. Surrounded by bright turquoise waters, the island boasts wonderful sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and woods so captivating, they were a favorite spot for godly twins Artemis and Apollo, according to ancient myths.

Popular beaches like Agios Nikolaos, Alykanas and Tsilivi offer swimming and water sports. Accessed only by boat, Instagram-worthy Navagio beach is the site of a famed 1980 smugglers’ shipwreck resting in a sandy cove dramatically framed by towering limestone cliffs.
