Anyone who has sailed through the Aegean and along the Adriatic Coast will tell you that it is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The combined effect of the natural beauty with the intriguing history and stunning architecture of the towns and cities make for a fascinating voyage. During our voyage from Athens to Split, we will sail through turquoise waters, admire rugged landscapes and visit some of the region’s greatest sites in the company of knowledgeable local guides.
This is not an itinerary which a large cruise ship could operate but one which is ideal for the MS Monet. Sailing from Athens and through the Corinth Canal, we will explore a magnificent array of ancient ruins including the sacred site of Delphi, the ancient city of Nikopolis and the marvellous site of Butrint in Albania where settlement can be traced back to the 8th century BC. We will spend time in some charming towns and villages and have scheduled in some daytime sailing allowing time to appreciate the wonderful scenery of the region including the stunning beauty of Montenegro’s Kotor Fjord. By the end of the voyage you will have seen and learnt so much and exploring in small groups with excellent guides, our trips ashore will be a pleasure. Whether your interest lies in ancient history, modern politics or simply the joy of experiencing new places, this journey has something for everyone.
