Highlights of this cruise:

Step off the cruise ship, linger at a sidewalk café in the early evening and take in the pageant: the taste of your cappuccino, the kiss of warm air, the immaculately attired locals just getting their evenings started. Rome is nicknamed the Eternal City, and rightly so, for the array of icons – the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Castel Sant'Angelo, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica – and for the role it played shaping the Western world. But there is perhaps a less-recognized genius in the way the city embraces the sensual side of life, as if to acknowledge there's no eternity like the present.

Historians tell us that Greek sailors founded the settlement they named “Laus” (precipice) in the seventh century. Today Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a walled medieval city of cobblestone lanes, red terra cotta roofs and clustered buildings, perched high above the Adriatic Sea. Take a walking tour through the ages, past the Baroque St. Blaise Church, the Renaissance Sponza Palace, the Gothic Rector’s Palace and other architectural gems. For spectacular city views, ride a newly restored funicular to the top of Srdj Hill. Cruise along the city walls and on to the Fort of St. Lawrence and Lokrum Island, where Richard the Lionhearted was a castaway. Head out to the Konavie Valley and learn to make traditional silk thread, or sample the region’s finest wines in Komaji.

Your eyes deceive you as you get closer. An entire stone city concocted from spires and cupolas seems to float on water. The optics seem off, but by now you're too far charmed to turn back. Cruise to Venice with Holland America Line and start easily. Have a bicerin, a hot mix of espresso, drinking chocolate and whole milk. Then step out into the palatial arcades and outdoor cafes of St. Mark's Square. Ready? Now you can really get going. Venice has 117 islands and a million stories of empire, longing, and glory.
