Venice, Italy

You could start a discussion about Venice by praising its restaurants, wine bars, marble churches or blown glass. But you probably won’t. You’ll likely start with the fact that Venice is built on water. It is a place where people either float slowly down palace-lined man-made waterways or stroll down narrow alleyways. There’s no more of an extraordinary place to find yourself, or lose yourself. Enjoy a 2 night stay to explore at your leisure. 

Venice, Italy

Embark your ocean cruise on Azamara Pursuit today and indulge as you explore the coast of Croatia.

Opatija, Croatia

Welcome to Opatija! Wedged between lush, forested hills and the sparkling Adriatic Sea, this enchanting coastal town is straight out of a fairy tale. Dine along the seaside promenade, swim in sheltered bays and admire the beautiful Villa Angiolina and Botanical Garden.

Split, Croatia

Welcome to Split! This atmospheric city is stunningly located between coastal mountains and the glistening turquoise waters of the Adriatic. Discover UNESCO site Diocletian’s Palace, amble down the postcard-perfect Riva Promenade and explore the cobblestoned maze of Old Town. Once you’re done exploring, get into the spirit of Fjaka, the Dalmatian art of doing nothing, as you relax at one of the dozens of bars, cafes and restaurants lining the city’s walls.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Welcome to Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic. Famous for its distinctive terracotta rooftops, gleaming limestone streets and medieval architecture, no trip to Croatia is complete without a visit to Dubrovnik. Walk along the city walls, take a cable car to Mount Srd for impeccable views or kayak to the turquoise waters of Lokrum Island.

Kotor, Montenegro

Welcome to Kotor, a hidden Balkan gem. Tucked into the spectacular bay and surrounded by a wall of brooding mountains, the atmosphere of Kotor is unbeatable. Wander the maze that is Old Town, kayak along the bay and sample local wine and fresh seafood at one of the countless seaside restaurants.

Hvar, Croatia

Welcome to Hvar! This picturesque island located off Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is known for its clear blue water, hip beach clubs and delicious cuisine. Admire the stunning limestone buildings of Hvar Town, go wine tasting in Stari Grad and hike to Hvar Fortress for sweeping views over the island.

Zadar. Croatia

Zadar, a city on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, is known for the Roman and Venetian ruins of its peninsular Old Town. There are several Venetian gates in the city walls. Surrounding the Roman-era Forum is 11th-century St. Mary’s Convent, with religious art dating to the 8th century. There’s also the grand, 12th-century St. Anastasia’s Cathedral and the round, 9th-century pre-Romanesque Church of St. Donatus.

Milan, Italy

Disembark your cruise in  Venice and enjoy a scenic rail journey to Milan, the world’s fashion capital.
