Overnight: Best Western Quid Hotel, Venice

After breakfast you will be transferred to the cruise terminal to embark on your floating home for the next seven nights. The cruise will depart at 4:30pm.

Overnight: MSC Cruises – ‘MSC Poesia’ ship

Day 5: Bari, Italy - 10:00am to 5:00pm (B,L,D)
An ancient city just waiting to be discovered. It’s so worthwhile to simply wander around the old city of Bari, an entrancing jumble of streets that are possibly the most mind-bending place to walk around in southern Italy.

Overnight: MSC Cruises – ‘MSC Poesia’ ship

Day 6: Katakolon, Greece - 11:00pm to 5:00pm (B,L,D)
Katakolon is a tiny seaside town in Greece in the bay of Agios Andreas, only 20 km away from the ancient site of Olympia. MSC offer comprehensive excursions to Olympia. It is one of the largest ancient sites in Greece, spread beside the twin rivers of Alfiós and Kládhios, and overlooked by the Hill of Krónos.

Overnight: MSC Cruises – ‘MSC Poesia’ ship

Day 7: Mykonos, Greece - 8:00am to 7:00pm (B,L,D)
Mykonos is the quintessential image of the Cyclades. In summer most people head out to the beaches during the day, so early morning or late afternoon are the best times to wander the maze of narrow streets.

Overnight: MSC Cruises – ‘MSC Poesia’ ship

Day 8: Piraeus (Athens), Greece - 7:30am to 4:30pm (B,L,D)
Pireas (Piraeus) is the port of call for you during an MSC cruise to the Mediterranean. It has been the port of Athens since Classical times, when the so-called Long Walls, scattered remnants of which can still be seen, were built to connect it to the city. The easiest way to visit the Acropolis is on a shore excursion. The vestiges of the ancient Classical Greek city, most famously represented by the Parthenon and other remains that top the Acropolis, are an inevitable focus, along with the magnificent National Archaeological Museum.

Overnight: MSC Cruises – ‘MSC Poesia’ ship

Day 9: Sarande, Albania - 12:00pm to 8:00pm (B,L,D)
Blessed with one of the stunning natural environments of the entire Albanian coast, with beaches of small natural stones and a wonderful blue sea, Sarande is the next big thing in travel. Located near the border of Greece, looking out to the holiday island of Corfu, Sarande is like heaven on earth.

Overnight: MSC Cruises – ‘MSC Poesia’ ship

Day 10: Dubrovnik, Croatia - 9:00am to 3:00pm (B,L,D)
A walled, sea-battered city lying at the foot of a grizzled mountain, Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most popular cruise destination, and it’s not difficult to see why. Reshaped by Baroque planners after a disastrous earthquake of 1667; Dubrovnik’s historic core seems to have been suspended in time ever since.

Overnight: MSC Cruises – ‘MSC Poesia’ ship

Day 11: Venice, Italy - Dock at 9:00am (B)
This morning you will dock back in Venice. After disembarkation you will be transferred to your hotel in Venice for one final night. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

Overnight: Best Western Quid Hotel Venice
