Travel the early autumn shores of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas on this incredible ten-night trip aboard Oceania Cruises’ Nautica. Start your journey in Venice, a timeless city of gliding gondolas and charming old shops. Set off for Split, a historic Croatian city built around the fourth-century Roman palace of Diocletian, now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Discover the narrow, romantic streets and Venetian architecture of Kotor, then head to Durrës, one of the oldest cities in Albania. Explore the second-century Roman amphitheater, or journey to uncover the cultural landmarks of Tirana. In Zakynthos, stroll the Solomos Square or lounge on the beach for a dreamy afternoon.
Take in the black sands of Santorini’s beaches, where breathtaking rock formations climb from the volcanic floor, then travel to Chania. Located on the island of Crete, this city’s charm is contagious. Wander the old town roads or pop into a sleek waterfront café. Cruise the Ionian Sea to Bari, which draws visitors with its enchanting cobblestone lanes and arched alleyways lined with small shops. Your trip will end back in Venice, but before that, head for Ancona, a stunning city flanking the Italian region of Umbria. Spend your day exploring this city that dates to 390 BC, or travel inland for a sampling of wineries and views of wildflowers.
