PONANT invites you on an unforgettable circuit that will take you from the Adriatic Sea to the Aegean Sea, discovering the unmissable sites of Italy, Greece and the Dalmatian coastlines. Enjoy this 8-day cruise aboard Le Lyrial, between Venice and Athens.
Following a first port of call in the picturesque port of Hvar, you will continue to sail along the Dalmatian coastlines to Dubrovnik. Sitting high on a rocky outcrop, its old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, watches the world go by.
You will then reach Montenegro after sailing in the Bay of Kotor, which is strangely reminiscent of Norwegian fjords. The city of Kotor nestles in a bay surrounded by wooded mountains. Its old town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its medieval architecture.
From Brindisi, do not miss out on the visit to Lecce, justifiably nicknamed "the Florence of Southern Italy." This city, a major site for Baroque architecture, is home to many architectural wonders.
You will then head to the Delphi sanctuary of Greek gods which you will reach via Itea. Delphi is located on a grandiose site that is one of Greece's most beautiful natural landscapes. You will walk in the footsteps of the pilgrims of old, who came here to consult the famous oracle.
Your cruise will end in Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis.
