9 Night Cruise sailing from Venice to Athens aboard Azamara Journey.

One of the joys of travel is discovering how places so close can be so different. This Adriatic adventure is a case in point. Each day brings something new, from canals in Venice, to underground caverns in Slovenia, to clifftop monasteries in Greece.

A night and full day in Venice before departure lets you bask in the glory of Piazza San Marco, take a leisurely stroll along the canals, marvel at palaces and galleries, or visit Murano’s glassmakers and Burano’s lacemakers.

In Koper, you’ll find the 15th-century Praetorian Palace still very much in use as a town hall. For a startling departure from everyday reality, take an underground tour of Skocjan Caves, a sprawling network of river-carved limestone caverns stretching over six kilometers. Or visit Slovenia’s beautiful capital city of Ljubljana, where an emerald river encircles a pedestrian- and bike-friendly old town. Slovenia. You won’t forget this place.

Nor will you forget Korcula, one of the prettiest Adriatic islands with green woods, peaceful coves and beaches, and a splendid old town. The island has kept Croatia’s folk traditions alive as well as its winemaking traditions, producing high quality white wines from native pošip grapes. Dubrovnik is Korcula’s grown-up cousin, with its own massive ramparts and marble streets lined with historic monuments. A late stay here lets you return to town after sunset for dinner and music, an experience you shouldn’t miss.

Be on deck as we sail the magnificent fjord to Kotor, an ancient city nestled against steep mountains. If you’re feeling fit, climb the steps to the Fortress for fabulous views. Stroll to the old town and markets, or take a boat to Our Lady of the Rocks church on an island in the bay. You’ll get another chance to sigh over the beautiful fjord as we depart.

As we sail south, each of three ports in Greece will add to your “who knew?” travel stories. Katakolon is the home of the ancient Olympiad, and Nafplio is arguably one of the prettiest towns in Greece, with elegant homes lining narrow streets with sweeping bay views. From here you can visit ancient Mycenae and Corinth, sites steeped in history. At the end we sail to Athens. Somehow a fitting end to this great escape.
