From the City of Gods to the Serenissima

Set sail to discover the Mediterranean and the Adriatic with PONANT. During this new 8-day cruise, Le Lyrial will take you to Greece, Montenegro, Croatia, and Italy.

Your voyage begins in Athens, the city of the gods and the great philosophers dominated by the Acropolis.

The unique Santorini, one of the pearls of the Cyclades awaits you, unfurling the grandiose circle of its caldera. After calling at Nafplion, an opportunity to visit the superb Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, listed with UNESCO, Le Lyrial will then set sail for Parga, a charming little town nesting in the heart of an isolated bay. Its colourful houses, built on the hillside, enjoy a superb view over the Ionian Sea and overlook beaches of great beauty.

You will then reach Montenegro after sailing in the Bay of Kotor, which is strangely reminiscent of Norwegian fjords. The city of Kotor nestles in a bay surrounded by wooded mountains. Its old town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its medieval architecture.

Your discovery of Croatia will continue with the island of Hvar, and its traditions dating back to ancient times.

As a grand finale, your voyage will draw to an end in Venice the Serenissima and its lagoon. Piazza San Marco, the Doge's Palace, the Grand Canal and the palaces along the canals will be your last stops on an unforgettable cruise.
