|DAY 1: NOV 5|
|TBA||Coach to Toronto and fly British Airways to Venice|
|DAY 2: NOV 6|
|VENICE, ITALY||Arrive in Venice and transfer to our hotel. Enjoy the day wandering the city.|
|DAY 3: NOV 7|
|VENICE, ITALY||Guided tour of Venice and welcome dinner! 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 extraordinary place to find yourself, or lose yourself.|
|DAY 4: NOV 8|
|ALL ABOARD!||The sail away from Venice is one that you will never forget! As we sail past Piazza San Marco and this beautiful city, you will be left speechless as we toast our exciting Mediterranean holiday! You won’t believe your eyes and as we sail witness the beauty of this majestic city from the ship!|
|DAY 5: NOV 9|
|DUBROVNIK, CROATIA||Despite the magnificent 13th century walls that surround the city, Dubrovnik is one of the most welcoming cruise destinations in all of Europe. Dubbed “the pearl of the Adriatic” by the poet, Lord Byron, this Croatian city exudes romantic charm and beautiful scenery with its shimmering marble streets, centuries-old buildings capped by bright orange roofs, and lovely beaches ensconced between awesome rocky ledges.|
|DAY 6: NOV 10|
|KOTOR, MONTENEGRO||Tucked away between the mountains and the Bay of Kotor, one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea, is where you’ll find the picturesque town of Kotor. As you arrive at this secluded city, you’ll notice the dramatic 65-foot high protective walls, which date back to the Venetian period during the 9th century. Stroll the labyrinth of cobbled streets with cozy cafes and craft shops as you marvel the graceful old buildings. Listed as a UNESCO World Natural and Historical Heritage Site, Kotor is also world-famous as a premier yachting and sailing destination.|
|DAY 7: NOV 11|
|CORFU, GREECE||One of the lushest of the Greek Isles, Corfu is rimmed in dramatic blue waters and topped with tranquil hillside villages. A collection of quaint cafes in the town of Corfu feels very continental, but the island’s secluded coves and sandy beaches could only be found in the Greek Isles.|
|DAY 8: NOV 12|
|SANTORINI, GREECE||Whitewashed villages clinging to the sides of the sea cliffs have made the volcanic island of Santorini one of the most widely photographed places in the world. The island’s charm and subtle mystery have even made it a target of speculation as the location of the lost city of Atlantis.|
|DAY 9: NOV 13|
|ATHENS (PIRAEUS), GREECE||This is the cradle of civilization, the oldest city in Europe. Not only is this city home to the Acropolis and some of the most important architectural structures and archaeological finds in the Western world, It is also a very modern city, an urban amalgam of extraordinary art, culture, cuisine and shopping.|
|DAY 10: NOV 14|
|AT SEA||Norwegian Dawn offers the ultimate Freestyle Cruising experience. Dine in Los Lobos Cantina, an upscale Mexican restaurant. Drop by The Cellars, a Michael Mondavi Family Wine Bar for a wine tasting. Or take Lady Luck for a spin in The Dawn Club Casino.|
|DAY 11: NOV 15|
|VALLETTA, MALTA||Although somewhat scarred by World War II, Valletta prides itself on its magnificent Baroque palaces, piazzas, gardens and churches. The Magisterial Palace, built between 1571 and 1574, now houses the Maltese Parliament and offices of the President of Malta.|
|DAY 12: NOV 16|
|NAPLES, ITALY||Cruise to Naples, located on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, a city rich in history. A tour around Naples’ grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles in the old centre will take you back centuries. Pompeii is not too far either, a dashing city which boasts diverse cultural offerings and charming streets.|
|DAY 13: NOV 17|
|ROME (CIVITAVECCHIA), ITALY||Endless adventures await in Rome. With two and a half thousand years of history, art and culture, it is no wonder Rome is one of the most visited cities on the planet. Gaze at the masterpieces of the Vatican or walk into the past with visits to ancient relics, historic monuments and legendary museums. Or people-watch while sipping on an espresso in a quaint cafe.|
|DAY 14: NOV 18
|FLORENCE/PISA (LIVORNO) ITALY||How lucky to visit the Tuscan region, Florence & Pisa, resplendent in art and history. What’s even more fortunate is that all the main attractions in Florence are centrally located for the perfect walking tour. See Santa Croce, Piazza del Duomo and Michelangelo’s David.|
|DAY 15: NOV 19
|MONTE CARLO, MONACO||OVERNIGHT. The world’s second smallest country is big on glitz and glamour. Perhaps best known for its breathtaking casino and headline-making royal family, Monte Carlo is all manicured streets, impressive palaces and lush city parks. Come see how the rich and famous live and play.|
|DAY 16: NOV 20
|PALMA, MAJORCA, SPAIN||On the one hand, this city, founded by the Romans some 2,100 years ago, is replete with (literally) wall-to-wall history and architectural splendor. You can journey back in time and wander the mazes of alleyways and cobblestone paths that surround the Gothic cathedral. On the other hand, Palma is bustling with life, showcasing the island’s best restaurants, shops, nightlife and a vibrant art scene.|
|DAY 17 & 18: NOV 21 – 22
|BARCELONA, SPAIN||The capital of Catalonia, and one of its provinces, Barcelona, is a place of palpable history, where you can lose yourself strolling down the medieval streets of the Barri Gotic. It’s a city designed to delight the senses: visit other-worldly Modernista churches like Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia, or treat yourself at a street side cafe to Patatas Bravas or a Passion Fruit Mojito.|
|DAY 19: NOV 23
|HOME||Fly British Airways back to Toronto where our motor coach will await to return us home.|
