Ah, the Adriatic and the Aegean Seas… where rugged mountains contrast the vastness of the blue azure waters; where centuries old quaint villages hug the coastline of hidden bays: where we are transported back in time to another era. Stroll local markets to absorb the scents and colours of locally grown oranges and olives. Savour authentic and flavourful cuisine made of fresh sun soaked ingredients giving a taste of everlasting summer. We begin this delightful voyage with two nights in the very heart of Venice, a city steeped in history, just steps from St Mark’s, before we embark on the deluxe Seabourn Encore for a truly pampered cruise that explores some of the most exciting hidden Gems together with the more popular ports of this region. Finally, we end in bustling Istanbul, with two nights at a very special hotel in the heart of the old city, steps from Hagia Sophia and the Grand Bazaar. This promises to be the most spectacular cruise of the year – but space is already limited as we emerge from the Pandemic – we urge you to book early to get your choice of suites.
