Port of Hvar, Croatia
The Oracle of Delphia, Greece

Aboard Le Bougainville

Voyage through the Adriatic Sea along the coast of Croatia, Montenegro, and Albania stopping along the way at coastal towns and villages – to reach the final destination of Athens. Visit the ruins of ancient civilizations exploring the influence of the Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Venetian and Slavic cultures on this nine-day cruise aboard the new five-star expedition ship Le Bougainville.

Start this adventure in Venice and set sail to Split, the second-largest city of Croatia and home to Diocletian’s Palace. Wander through the streets of Dubrovnik, discover its beautiful monuments, and restored 15th-century fortress walls. Recall history in Montenegro’s town of Kotor, an old port surrounded by fortifications and architecture built during the Venetian period. Enter antiquity in Albania and visit the remarkable archaeological site of Butrint. Then journey to Corfu, the second-largest island of the Greek Ionian Islands, overflowing with a history full of battles and conquests from as far back as the 5th-century. Pass through the Corinth Canal, a four-mile long narrow channel with impressively steep walls, to finally land in Athens.
