21 Night Cruise sailing from Venice to Greenwich aboard Viking Sun.
Cruise around Italy’s boot and through the Strait of Gibraltar en route to celebrated London. Begin with an overnight in Venice. See historic Split and beautiful walled Dubrovnik. Call on seaside Naples, home of pizza, piazzas and Pompeii. Admire Rome’s ancient monuments and Tuscany’s Renaissance treasures, and spend two days in whimsical Barcelona. Visit charming Vigo and medieval Canterbury before concluding your travels with an overnight stay in London.
Highlights of this cruise:
Step on board in Venice, the magical city renowned for its art, architecture and culture. Watch the sunlight dapple on the water as we ease our way through the archipelago. An overnight stay provides you with ample time to explore the city.
Spend the entire day on the romantic island of Corfu, resplendent with charming pastel town houses and pristine white beaches. Our included tour takes us on a drive to Kanoni, where we will make a photo stop to view tiny Mouse Island and the Vlacherna Monastery. Following the coastline through Garitsa Bay, you will reach the UNESCO Site of the Old Town. See the fabled Esplanade, one of Europe’s largest public squares, and the Liston Promenade, once exclusively reserved for the local aristocracy.
Uncover more ancient treasures of Rome and its surroundings today. Join an excursion that features the city’s major highlights, plus St. Peter’s Basilica, the Colosseum, or Piazza Navona. Discover the hidden gems of the city along the Tiber River. Alternately, visit Tarquinia’s Etruscan necropolis or the excavated town of Ostia.
Enjoy a full day in Monaco, the playground for the rich and famous, as well as the gateway to the beautiful South of France. Visit medieval Monaco, stopping at the Prince’s Palace and St. Nicholas Cathedral, the burial site of the royal family, including American actress Grace Kelly. You will have time to step inside the Casino de Monte-Carlo, the most prestigious and celebrated gambling mecca on Earth. As an option, venture out of town to the legendary perfumeries in Grasse, or stroll along the English promenade in glamorous Nice.
Murcia (Cartagena), Spain
Uncover the rich history of Cartagena today, brimming with remarkable architecture spanning the ages—from the days of Rome to art nouveau. Outside the city, marvel at the beauty of the sanctuary of the Virgin of Fuensanta, Murcia’s patron saint, and the baroque- and Gothic-style cathedral. Alternately, explore Cartagena’s impressive Roman Theater and Roman Forum.
Vigo lies on the western edge of Europe and is home to the continent’s largest fishing fleet, which sets sail each day and returns with its catch at sunset. But this “Gateway to the Atlantic” is more than just a fishing port. The old city, Casco Vello, is brimming with charming houses set amid winding lanes and steep alleys that are delightful to explore. Take a trip farther inland to magnificent Santiago de Compostela. Visit the cathedral and meander through the Old Town of this important place of pilgrimage. Or journey to the Galicia region, famed for its superb Albariño wines and delicious tapas dishes.
Today, call on the Isle of Portland; despite its name, the “island” is actually a narrow limestone peninsula that juts out into the English Channel from Dorset’s coastline. The famous Portland Stone is quarried here. It has been used to construct many of London’s buildings as well as those found further afield—the United Nations Building in New York, for example, was built from Portland stone. Explore the scenic Jurassic Coast and the beautiful Dorset countryside as you learn about the involvement of Portand’s residents in the Normandy beach landings. Or you can enjoy a tour of Bovington’s Tank Museum and discover the town’s leading role in the development of military technology.
London (Greenwich), England
Discover the celebrated Royal Borough of Greenwich—part of which, Maritime Greenwich, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. London is just a short drive away, so you can take in the regal city and all its splendor. See the Tower of London, Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Or step off the ship in Greenwich, where you may visit its excellent National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory from where the world’s clocks are set.
