The Eastern Mediterranean awaits you for a cruise to the roots of our civilisation, against the backdrop of nature with dazzling beauty.

A meeting point of three continents and countless peoples, the Eastern Mediterranean has been one of humanity’s most important historical crossroads. Among its shores developed the Hellenistic civilization, from which Western culture was born. Its islands and coves have been the scene of crucial events, but also ideal scenario for the birth of myths and legends.

Where to start? To visit everything, our cruise could last years, like the trip of Ulysses. To learn about the interweaving of history and legend that characterizes the Eastern Mediterranean, and at the same time appreciate the incomparable beauty of the landscape, we have chosen an itinerary with these cities:

Home of poignant romance, Venice is the city of water par excellence, also known as La Serenissima. The port of Venice and the city itself looks out towards the Adriatic Sea. The city of the Doges is situated in the middle of a lagoon, has more canals than roads and boasts incredible beauty and a unique charm derived from centuries of history. The best way to see the city and to discover and admire the palaces and churches, is to travel along the canals in a gondola. This will take you to Piazza San Marco, the site of the Doge’s Palace, a jewel of Venetian architecture. Alternatively, art lovers can explore the Pinault Foundation in the Palazzo Grassi, before continuing with the cruise in the Mediterranean.

Dubrovnik is located in the south of Croatia, on the Dalmatian coast, and is protected from the bora and scirocco. This means that its climate is pleasant, even in the summer months. Its sea is among the cleanest and bluest in the world and, breathing deeply on the coast, you cannot help but feel the scent of pine trees, which surround the beaches and cool the hottest hours of the day. The beaches, amongst the most beautiful of the whole of Croatia, are uncrowded and perfect for romantic evenings by the sea.
