Explore Mediterranean delight on this 16-day tour of Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Croatia. Experience the history, elegance, and surreal beauty that uniquely define your journey. Few opportunities exist that allow you to effortlessly explore the Venetian canals, the birthplace of the Olympics, the Topkapi Palace and the historically-saturated walls of Old Dubrovnik.
Venice – The Historic City of Venice
The city of Venice embodies luxury that reflects the prestige of the former Republic. Marble palaces rise above the winding canals and the Ducal Palace exudes the power exuding from the seat of the former ruler. The city defies convention with modern art galleries that contrast the historic design of the architecture and the beaches along the Lido that reflect the faded allure of the Art-Deco aesthetic. You will only need to collect your baggage and clear customs before your private transfer greets you at the airport and escorts you by boat to your luxurious hotel.
