Immerse in the history and culture of the Mediterranean on this 10-night cruise aboard Oceania Cruises’ Nautica. Embark in Venice and set sail for Zadar. Explore Roman temples and medieval churches, or visit the archeological museum to see over 80,000 exhibits from the Stone Ages to the Middle Ages. In Sibenik, tour the magnificent St. James Cathedral — a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a stunning example of Renaissance and Gothic architecture. Stroll the lovely old Venetian quarter in Corfu, or soak up the sun at a pristine beach in Mykonos. Take in the wonderful scents while wandering through the aromatic spice markets in Istanbul. Explore the imposing Cesme Castle, which dates back to the 16th century. Before journeys end in Athens, sample remarkable vintages at a renowned winery in Santorini, where the house-dotted cliffs are the perfect backdrop for a glass of Brusco.

*Note: Embarkation for this cruise is in Treiste which is approximately two hours from Venice. If you arrange your own airfare, you'll need to arrange for your own tranfer transportation to Treiste.
