Kick off your luxurious journey in magical Venice. There’s just something about this floating city, the reflections of grand palazzos and churches shimmering on the rippling sea green canals. For comparison, Venice looks like a watercolor painting brought to life. At night, you will stay at Hotel Danieli. During the day, you will find hidden gardens overflowing with olive vines and fruit trees along the Grand and Giudecca canals.
At every turn, Venice exudes opulence. You will visit an ancient weaving mill creating Venetian silk velvet in the tradition of the Doges. Escape the crowds in an after hours visit to St. Mark’s Basilica, flanking the beautiful Piazza San Marco. This grand square feels even more enchanting when the moon casts its subtle, ethereal glow. The voice of a gondolieri echos in the maze-like moonlit canals. Your guide will also lead you further out in the lagoon to the bright and cheery islands of Murano, Burano, and Venissa, each splashed in pretty pastels.
Croatian Island Hopping
We take you along Croatia’s coast stopping at different points, each one as dreamy as the next. Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, is a UNESCO-listed gem. A private guide leads you through the city and to the nearby preserved Elaphiti Islands. Croatia’s coast is alluring because of its plentiful islands, but we have narrowed in on the must-sees, whisking you off in style.
Set sail to Marco Polo’s birthplace in Korcula, a treasure of music, art, history, and traditional crafts. Even your hotel, the Lesic Dimitri Palace, is inspired by this explorer’s travels. Wade into the aquamarine sea from a sandy beach. When the captain tells you to jump into the Adriatic, you will happily oblige. Discover Split’s ancient Roman Dioclecian Palace, while Hvar is easily considered one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Find 13th-century Renaissance cathedrals, secluded coves, and carpets of lavender fields all basking in the abundant sunshine. When you are on board the yacht with a glass of red wine, watching the Dalmatian Coast drift by, you will hope that you never wake up from this blissful dream.
