Our adventure cruise through the Ionian and Adriatic Seas takes us to nine World Heritage Sites and legendary medieval cities. We begin with the Mediterranean crossroads island of Malta, then sail to Sicily's Greek and Roman ruins treasure-trove, Syracuse. Croatia's Dalmatian Coast is a revelation of medieval jewels: the walled city of Dubrovnik; Korcula Island, once the home of Marco Polo; the harbor city of Split; and Sibenik, with its magnificent 15th-century cathedral. Timeless Venice, once hailed as "Queen of the Adriatic" makes a fitting final port of call.

Island Sky 
.From the historic crossroads island o Malta and its lovely 16th-century capital, Valletta, wecruise to Sicily’s Greek and Roman treasure-trove, Syracuse. We then traverse the Ionian Sea,the ancient Greek and Roman route o trade and conquest, and enter the Adriatic, sailingtoward southern Albania. Our rst stop here showcases the impressive archaeological site o Butrint where ancient ruins rise among owering orest glades. Te centerpiece o our voyage,the enchanting Dalmatian Coast, is a revelation o medieval jewels, and we begin our explora-tion in Kotor, Montenegro’s 14th-century walled ortress town ronted by a sublime bay andsurrounded by limestone clifs.Croatias enchanted shores are punctuated by inviting sandy coves and dramatic limestonemountains. More than one thousand islets dot these waters, some home to tiny photogenicvillages, others uninhabited and cloaked in r. History spans the millennia here—romPaleolithic times to Roman conquest, rom Byzantine rule to Venetian dominance. In beau-tiul medieval Dubrovnik…at Korçula Island, once the home o Marco Polo… in the harborcity o Split… and in Sibenik, the ancient Croatian ortress town, our voyage showcasesthe architectural legacies o these powerul civilizations with visits to superb Romanesque,Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque palaces, monasteries, and churches. A tting nale,sensuous, elegant Venice awaits, a timeless masterpiece o art and architecture, and onceomnipotent “queen o the Adriatic.”During our journey enjoy time to ollow the winding lanes in ancient town centers, pause inountain-splashed plazas, and savor the local scene in a bustling marketplace. Photographers will appreciate the glow o aternoon sun on red-tiled rootops, along with sweeping viewso quaint harbors and dramatic promontories. And as we walk in the cool shade o KrkaNational Park, serenaded by its many wateralls, we have the chance to experience the naturalbeauty that once beguiled princes, emperors, and kings around the Mediterranean.I invite you to join me and our renowned lecture team, including historians and archaeolo-gists, as we sail these abled waters in the ull bloom o spring. Warmest regards,Mike Messick Expedition Leader and Zegrahm Coounder
