The Adriatic

Discover the coasts and waterways of this legendary sea that has linked empires, traders and explorers for thousands of years. Ancient fishing villages appear amid the trees as you sail past remote and spectacular cliffs and bays. Adriatic cruises are all about exploration so make the most of stops in cities and towns like Dubrovnik, known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, and the hilltop village of Opatija, once a favourite retreat for Lord Byron. In Split you can visit the palace of Roman emperor Diocletian, while in Trieste you can discover the Cathedral of San Giusto with its stunning views of the Adriatic. Romantics, historians and foodies alike will adore the delights of an Adriatic cruise.
