Discover coastal Montenegro and the beautiful islands of Greece on a memorable weeklong cruise across the Ionian and Adriatic seas starting in Venice, Italy. Board the Royal Caribbean® Rhapsody of the Seas® in Venice, and set sail along the coast of Italy. Head to Kotor, Montenegro, a well-preserved
medieval town on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, with architecture dating back to the 9th century.
Your next stop is Corfu, Greece, a mountainous Greek island in the Ionian Sea, and enjoy the vibrant culture, exciting nightlife, serene beaches and welcoming local villages. Remarkable Venetian architecture is still standing in several areas, and French and English influences are abundant as well. The ship will then venture to Athens, renowned for its ancient architecture, commanding artifacts, and fascinating mythology and history. Relics from its world-shaping era as ancient Greece’s greatest city-state include the Acropolis (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and the extensive collections in the National Archaeological Museum.
The following day, arrive in bustling Mykonos, Greece’s most popular island getaway. Sunbathe on the beaches and take in views of the iconic Cycladic architecture during your time on shore. Next, head to historic Argostoli, Greece, and try some of the local food and drink for an authentic experience of Greek culture. Then, after a relaxing day at sea, return to Venice and disembark from your unforgettable cruise around the Ionian and Adriatic seas.
What we love:
• Tour major landmarks in Kotor, such as St. Tryphon’s Cathedral or the Collegiate Church of St. Mary Youghal before exploring the fortified town’s walls or the Maritime Museum of Montenegro.
• Corfu city’s old quarter was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 2007.
• The village of Mykonos is a walkable maze of streets lined with whitewashed buildings accented by 16th-century windmills atop a hill in Little Venice.
