Love is always in the air in Venice. Start your 11-day tall ship adventure gliding in a gondola down the Grand Canal. Explore Hvar, idyllically located just off the Dalmatian Coast. The island and the little port named after it have been a favorite getaway ever since the time of the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians, and even Austro-Hungarian royalty. Dubrovnik, which George Bernard Shaw called "paradise on earth", is a treasure by any measure made more precious by its miraculous restoration. If ancient history is your interest, then visit Olympia, set in a stunningly lovely valley overlooked by Kronos Hill, which began hosting athletic games in the 11th century BC at Katakolon. End this unique adventure at Piraeus, the closest port to Greece's stunning capital Athens.
