Venice, Italy

Voyage to Istria: Italy, Slovenia & Croatia

Experience the history-steeped gems of the Venetian Republic from Italy to Slovenia and Croatia. Follow the cobbled squares and winding canals of the floating city of Venice, before setting sail on the sparkling Adriatic Sea in the ideal season-when the weather's mild and the summer crowds are thinning out. You'll enjoy exclusive Discovery Series events, including an olive-oil tasting, and feel the warmth of a Slovenian welcome during a Home-Hosted Visit. Walk in ancient footsteps at Roman Aquileia, find inspiration where James Joyce once did in Trieste, ponder more recent history at World War I and II sites, and visit Collio Wine Country for a tasting on a journey worth raising a glass to.
