La Serenissima beckons you to this brilliant 7-Night adventure!

There’s a reason Venice is known as “La Serenissima” or the “most serene.” This miracle of a city shouldn’t exist at all, but somehow she does. Her canals and bridges intentionally cause you to slow down. And when you do, a world of almost incalculable beauty awaits. Whether this is your first or 20th visit to Venice, she NEVER disappoints – taking your breath away at each and every turn. It’s actually quite difficult to put into words just how stunningly beautiful this city really is – poets have tried and failed for centuries; she must be seen to truly be believed.

Venice no longer welcomes large ocean liners, but our beautiful 5-star Le Lyrial falls just under the limits of what’s possible. Our custom itinerary has been crafted from the ground up with the best of the best ports of call just for you. We’ll sail roundtrip from Venice to the Adriatic’s most thrilling destinations in Croatia and Monténégro. We’ve also added a couple perfect days on Italy’s east coast. Our stop in Ravenna, Italy gives you the opportunity to visit the gorgeous hilltop micro-nation of San Marino for an unforgettable experience. 7 Nights. 4 Countries. 5-star All-Inclusive Luxury. Endless European Gorgeousness.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 13, 2023
VENICE, ITALY 45°N 12°E
BOARDING 3PM | DEPARTARTURE 6PM
VENICE, ITALY  45°N  12°E

Proud and eternal, Venice has reigned on its lagoon ever since the 6th century. You may think you know this city before even setting foot here. You will inevitably fall in love with the charm of the innumerable treasures of the Serenissima: Saint Mark’s square, the basilica, Doges palace, the Grand Canal, and the gondolas. Yet, secret Venice is also waiting for you to explore its little interlacing streets and canals, to ramble through its squares and to push open the doors of its churches. The city’s extraordinary heritage provides the perfect backdrop for enjoying a refreshing summer Aperol Spritz and a few tramezzini. At minimum, we recommend a couple days in Venice either before or after your cruise… or both!

DAY 2
MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 2023
SIBENIK, CROATIA
ARRIVE 12:30PM | DEPART 6:30PM
SIBENIK, CROATIA

When Le Lyrial drops anchor across from the Croatian village of Sibenik in the heart of Central Dalmatia, you’ll have the chance to discover the exceptional Krka Waterfalls. Krka National Park, with its eight waterfalls formed by calcium carbonate deposited by the water as it flows along the Krka River, is one of the most spectacular in Croatia. During an optional excursion, visit this lush natural site boasting incredibly rich fauna and flora.

DAY 3
TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2023
KOTOR, MONTÉNÉGRO & DUBROVNIK, CROATIA
ARRIVE KOTOR 9:30AM | DEPART KOTOR 3PM
ARRIVE DUBROVNIK 10PM | OVERNIGHT
KOTOR, MONTÉNÉGRO & DUBROVNIK, CROATIA

Situated in one of Monténégro’s most beautiful bays, the medieval city of Kotor is a small town full of charm, truly imbued with the traditions and stories of another time. Built between the 12th and 14th centuries, this village, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has preserved many historical monuments from this epoch. During our stop, be sure to admire the impressive castle that dominates the town, and let yourself fall under the charm of its maze of small streets and intimate squares.

We’ll sail from Kotor mid-afternoon and head to fabulous Dubrovnik. We’ll arrive just in time for a night on the town!

DAY 4
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 16, 2023
DUBROVNIK, CROATIA
OVERNIGHT | DEPART 7PM
DUBROVNIK, CROATIA

We’ll be docked in an area of town that only accommodates smaller vessels so you’ll have an advantage to come and go through a part of town that is not overrun by tourists from larger cruise ships. Just one more Super Yacht Advantage.

Emblem of the Dalmatian coast, Dubrovnik is magnificently positioned on a rocky spur. History is sovereign here in this ancient city, now a listed UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll perhaps be surprised by the proportions of La Placa, the central drag through the city. The sheer width of it can be explained by the fact that it straddles a former lagoon. The elegant houses along La Placa are built in the legendary travertine stone. At Pile Gate, you’ll be greeted by the statue of the patron saint of Dubrovnik, and you can admire the coastline as you walk along the ramparts.

DAY 5
THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 2023
BARI, ITALY
ARRIVE 7:30AM | DEPART 6PM
BARI, ITALY

With its gorgeous old town, bustling harbor, and Italy’s best beaches nearby, the Italian port city of Bari will surprise you with all she has to offer – chief among them, her food scene. Local chefs take advantage of all nearby farms and the sea have to offer to twist traditional Italian cuisine in exciting new ways.

With its imposing seafront built by Mussolini, the Old Harbor is the best place to start your exploration of Bari. In true fascist style, it’s the grandest and longest seafront in Italy, lined with lively bars, delicious restaurants, and perfect people-watching cafes.

DAY 6
FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 2023
HVAR, CROATIA
ARRIVE 7AM | DEPART 2PM
HVAR, CROATIA

Off the coast of Split, Hvar will surprise you by its traditions that haven’t changed since antiquity. The country’s oldest town, Stari Grad, is here on this Dalmatian Island. The town nestles by a cove on the north-west coast, surrounded by dry stone wall structures on the Stari Grad plains. These have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site because they were built in the time of the Ancient Greeks. From these parcels of land come wines and olive oil manufactured manually. In the upper part of town, it’s possible to discover hams and cheeses made by local producers. And discover them you should!

DAY 7
SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 2023
RAVENNA, ITALY (SAN MARINO)
ARRIVE 8:30AM | DEPART 6PM
RAVENNA, ITALY (SAN MARINO)

Ravenna is a history and art lover’s dream! Her mosaics are world renowned and no visit here is complete without exploring her most famous works – Basilica of San Vitale and the Mausoleum of Galla Placida. There are 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites here and your day will be filled exploring them all. However…

If you decide instead to visit the micro-nation of San Marino, be prepared to see one of THE most beautiful places you’ll ever lay eyes on. This hilltop nation’s splendor will leave you breathless. San Marino is actually the world’s oldest republic and has never been ruled by a monarch. Founded in 301 (that’s right, 301), the area of San Marino covers 24 square miles and has a population of just over 33,000 people. The main town square is THE place to start every exploration of the world’s fifth smallest country (only Tuvalu, Nauru, Monaco, and Vatican City are smaller).

DAY 8
SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2023
VENICE, ITALY
ARRIVE 7AM | ALL GUESTS DISEMBARK BY 9AM
VENICE, ITALY

We return to where this magical journey started – Venice, Italy. If you didn’t have the chance to spend much time here pre-cruise, we certainly hope you’ll take 2-3 days post-cruise to discover why she’s considered “the most beautiful city in the world.” Our recommended hotel is the Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Nani Venice. This gem can be booked approximately 11 months before the trip using the discount link on the trip’s GET READY page.

While we work tirelessly to craft the perfect itinerary for each trip, it’s always subject to change based on weather, sea, and myriad other conditions.
