Greek Isles Connoisseur with Princess Cruises

Spend 13 glorious days on board Pacific Princess discovering 9 ports of call in Croatia, Greece and Italy.

Highlights include:

  • Venice, Italy – Rising from the waters of the Laguna Veneta, Venice has long – and rightly – been regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
  • Sibenik, Croatia – Lying at the mouth of the Krka River, picturesque Sibenik was originally built on a small island surrounded by walls and towers. The quaint Old Town area offers a remarkable selection of sightseeing and shopping opportunities, and the deep, protected harbor is a beautiful place to wander and take pictures of the limestone cliffs and green offshore islands.
  • Kotor, Montenegro – Bordered by towering limestone cliffs, the winding bay is actually Southern Europe’s longest and most dramatic fjord. The port itself is a medieval gem: its narrow, asymmetrical streets are lined with ancient stone houses, old palaces, and churches dating from the 12th century.
  • Corfu, Greece – The lush and verdant island of Corfu lies in the Ionian Sea, midway between Greece and Italy. Corfu’s old town is a mixture of the medieval and the modern. The Esplanade, planted with palms and eucalyptus by the French, leads to the English cricket pitch.
  • Rhodes, Greece – The largest and arguably the most beautiful of the 12 islands forming the Dodecanese, Rhodes has long played a major role in history. Lying just 12 miles off the coast of Turkey, the island straddles the sea-lanes linking Egypt, Southern Europe and the Holy Land. The Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, is reputed to have once stood guard over the harbor. Today, the bronze statues of a stag and doe top the two columns marking the harbor entrance.
  • Santorini, Greece – Santorini is an anchorage port: passengers transfer to shore via shore tender.
  • Athens (Piraeus), Greece – Packed with busy shops and lively tavernas, modern Athens is a colorful counterpoint to classical Greece. Piraeus is the port city for Athens and has been Athens’ port of entry for over two millennia.
  • Sicily (Catania), Italy – Following a catastrophic eruption and earthquake in the 17th century the city was rebuilt to reflect the times. The result is a treasure trove of Baroque architecture, acclaimed as the best in all of Sicily. From its exalted history to its scenic environs Catania will never fail to delight, inspire and surprise.
  • Salerno, Italy – Hike the jaw-dropping Mount Vesuvius, feel the centuries unfold as on a guided walk through the amazing cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, or soak up the scenery with a cruise along the dazzling Amalfi Coast. Whatever you choose, Salerno offers precious memories that will last a lifetime.
  • Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy – Your gateway to the Eternal City, Civitavecchia has served as Rome’s seaport since the 13th century. Rome has been a magnet luring the world’s greatest artists, architects, and philosophers since the days of the Caesars.
