Le Bougainville will leave Valletta, the capital of Malta and former stronghold of the Knights of the Order of Malta, for a new 5-day cruise along the Adriatic coast.
Your ship will first set sail towards Montenegro, for an unforgettable cruise in the Bay of Kotor. This impressive gash between two mountain ranges is home to a veritable inland lake with a magical atmosphere; the medieval city of Kotor and its many historical monuments are its jewels.
You will then head to the aptly named “Pearl of the Adriatic”, Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Surrounded by medieval ramparts, its terracotta-tiled roofs, its palaces, cloisters and fountains are bound to impress you and will plunge you into the heart of Croatian history.
Your exploration of the Croatian coastlines will conclude with visits of Hvar, before you head to Venice.
