The antiquity of Split harbour is testified by the presence of the UNESCO listed Diocletian’s Palace built by Emperor Diocletian 295 BC. Split’s harbour is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful, but also one of the oldest in the Adriatic: it is over 1,700 years old, and is surrounded by an extraordinary historical heritage. You can easily reach the nearby islands from here.

Whitewashed villages clinging to the rugged sea cliffs have made the volcanic island of Santorini one of the most widely photographed places in the world. The island's charm and subtle mystery have even made it a target of speculation as to the location of the lost city of Atlantis.

After exploring Santorini, depart for Mykonos tonight. Mykonos is the most glamorous of the Greek Isles - well known for its cosmopolitan atmosphere, beautiful beaches and incredible nightlife. The old town has many tantalising dining options to choose from.

Overnight: MSC Cruises - ‘MSC Opera’ ship
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

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.

The labyrinthine design was supposed to confuse the pirates who plagued Mykonos in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, and it has the same effect on today’s visitors. When you alight from your MSC cruise, getting lost in its convoluted streets and alleys is half the fun of the place.

Overnight: MSC Cruises - ‘MSC Opera’ ship
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

The walled enclave of Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most popular cruise destinations, and it’s easy to see why. Grand architecture, narrow laneways to explore, and colourful cafes and bars to while away the hours… all framed by the shimmering waters of the Adriatic Sea. It’s truly magical.

On the northernmost edge of the Ionian islands, with its lush vegetation and picturesque coastline, you'll find a unique mosaic of cultural and artistic influences.

Please note: If you are travelling on the following departure dates you will visit Corfu, Greece (8:00am - 2:00pm) in place of Dubrovnik, Croatia:

Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Ancona is an intriguing port city just steps away from the Mediterranean Sea, a grand place to set out and explore on foot. Ancona’s large, three-storey Archaeological Museum in the old quarter is a great place to while away an hour or two - it's wacky, moulded ceilings vaulting over a collection of rare finds from red and black-figure Greek kraters (mixing vessels) to a stunning Celtic crown.

Overnight: MSC Cruises - ‘MSC Opera’ ship
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

This morning dock back into Venice and after disembarkation (please allow approx. 2 hours to disembark) you will need to make your own way to the airport for your return flight back to Australia.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER

Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop.

They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined.

Shopping:
Shopping overseas can be a daunting and confusing experience, especially when there is a language barrier. Please be very cautious when foreign currencies and prices are involved. If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all of your receipts. 
Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.
Please refer to our Terms and Conditions in regards to shopping for further information.



A Tourist visa is not required for Europe for stays up to 90 days if travelling on an Australian passport.
Please note: Passengers who are not Australian citizens must check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required. It is also important to note, some areas of employment such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations may have additional restrictions in applying for Visas. This may in turn affect the type of application required.

Supplier Fees
In the event the Travel Offer you have purchased is unable to proceed, and/or a travel Supplier is unable to fulfil the Travel Offer due to external circumstances (Limitation of Liability e.g. a Force Majeure event), there may be a fee or amount of money that is withheld by our Suppliers and is unrecoverable. This may be due to non-refundable airline tickets, cancellation penalties with cruise cabins or unrecoverable payments with our land/accommodation partners. TripADeal has committed to these costs as your Agent and will endeavour to recover all funds committed and/or paid for your Travel Offer, but this may not be possible in all circumstances. If refunds are not available from Suppliers, we will endeavour to obtain a travel credit on the best terms available and communicate these outcomes to you. In the event, TripADeal is unable to obtain a refund or travel service credit, or part thereof, this cost is passed on to the customer as a Supplier Fee. This fee is not revenue-raising and is paid to or withheld by our suppliers when recovering payments.
