Pre Cruise Day 1-3 UK/Venice
Venice has risen from its marshy foundations to become an enchanting labyrinth of waterways where gondoliers gently float by. Moorish and Byzantine influences abound in the city’s stunning squares and palaces, but it is also heaven for lovers of Italian gastronomy, wine and zest for life. Art, literature and architecture are the three cornerstones of Venice’s charm, alongside its Renaissance roots and romantic ambience. Enjoy the soaring views from Campanile di San Marco, and the unusual architecture of Campo Santa Maria Formosa. Alternatively, take the ferry to the quiet fishing village of Burano with its colourful streets and lace-making workshops.
Hotel Palace Bonvecchiati | Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 Embarkation and departure from Venice
Enjoy a full day exploring the city’s maze of streets, palazzos and squares lined with tiny ceramic and glass workshops, before setting sail. Don’t miss Venice’s legendary sights, the Basilica San Marco, Rialto Bridge, Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs. Art-lovers should visit the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, home to Tintoretto’s finest works; or, for more modern tastes, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, showcasing masterpieces of 20th-century art and the avant-garde movements.
Seven Seas Explorer | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 Urbino (Ancona), Italy
Discover the Renaissance spirit in Urbino, with its towering city walls based on designs by Leonardo da Vinci. Visit the incredible frescoes of Saint John the Baptist in the Oratorio di San Giovanni and the Ducal Palace, an architectural masterpiece which has stood for more than 500 years in the Piazza Duca Frederico. From here it is a short stroll to Raphael’s House, birthplace of the great painter. For a taste of the locality, look out for simple glazed white ceramics, unique to Urbino, sold in galleries and shops, along with fine leather goods, wines, locally-made cheeses and smoked meats.
Seven Seas Explorer | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 Dubrovnik, Croatia
Known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ and with good reason, such is the beauty of this walled Croatian city, with its 12th-century ramparts and ochre-roofed buildings amid the maze of narrow marble streets and steep steps. These make up the city’s Old Town, which is filled with restaurants, cafes and tourist shops that jostle for position alongside the many stone churches, monasteries and museums. Make sure you take a walk along the ancient city walls that encircle the town for some of the best views.
Seven Seas Explorer | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 Kotor, Montenegro
The medieval pocket-size walled city of Kotor in Montenegro still bears traces of its years under Venetian rule amid winding stone streets, tiny chapels and the grand 12th-century St Tryphon’s Cathedral. Set amid the limestone cliffs of the Gulf of Kotor, this UNESCO World Heritage city enjoys a spectacular setting with cobbled streets dotted with al fresco cafes and shops. Visitors who make the effort to walk the ancient walls surrounding the city are rewarded with glorious views across the fjord.
Seven Seas Explorer | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 Corfu, Greece
It’s somewhat hard to believe the lush, romantic isle of Corfu has such a tempestuous history full of strife and battles, but that is part of its appeal. Praised by Homer in his famous Odyssey, the island’s strategic position in the Ionian Sea made it a target for warring forces. Today, it offers a combination of cosmopolitan and time-honoured Grecian life. As well as lush terrain, rolling acres of olive groves and orchards of lemon and orange trees, plus Adriatic-style villages, Corfu has splendid coastal scenery and secluded beaches, while Corfu Town is the appealing capital, full of elegant streets dominated by graceful Venetian architecture.
Seven Seas Explorer | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9 Taormina (Sicily), Italy
A short drive from the gateway port of Naxos sits the pretty town of Taormina, which enjoys a wonderful mountainside setting 820ft above the sea. It is worth visiting for the beautiful views of Mount Etna alone. But it also has a fascinating history and in the early 20th century was a colony for expatriate artists and writers, including D H Lawrence. Highlights include the remarkably preserved Greco Roman amphitheatre, which still hosts performances; the splendid 15th-century Palazzo Corvaia; and the Odeon, a small Roman theatre set in colourful gardens.
Seven Seas Explorer | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10 Sorrento/Capri, Italy
The Neapolitan town of Sorrento can easily lay claim to being one of the world’s most beautiful locations, but its appeal is more than skin deep. Sorrento’s architecture, its inhabitants and the surrounding region are filled with culture and a rich history stretching back to the 11th century BC. Overlooking the Bay of Naples, the town is one of the most popular destinations of the Campania region. But an equally celebrated spot is the romantic isle of Capri which is best explored on a day trip, and is celebrated for its beautiful surroundings, upmarket ambience and unspoilt charm.
Seven Seas Explorer | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 11 Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy and disembarkation
On disembarking, we will transfer you to the Rocco Forte Hotel de Russie for three nights, so you can thoroughly explore the Eternal City of Rome. It is best to devote a full day to St Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel, and the chance to soak up panoramic city vistas for those willing to climb to the top of the dome. Other landmarks not to miss include the renowned Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, and Aventine Hill, which provides you with a grand view of the imposing remains of the Imperial Palaces and the Circus Maximus, of Ben Hur fame.
Rocca Forte Hotel de Russie | Bed & Breakfast

Post Cruise Day 12 – 13 Rome, Italy
Enjoy the opportunity to soak up Roman life; to watch the street performers at the Spanish Steps and people-watch over a fine glass of wine in the lively Trastevere neighbourhood. Don’t forget that you are in the capital city of arguably the world’s best cuisine, with a host of glamorous bars and restaurants, so seek out some of its often well-hidden gems. Visit Pizzarium for an unforgettable slice of how it should be done, or get shoulder to shoulder in the queue at one of Rome’s many excellent gelaterias.
Rocca Forte Hotel de Russie | Bed & Breakfast

Day 14 Rome/UK
Spend those last few hours picking up some souvenirs before heading back home.
