Yacht Charters in Venice
Venice needs little introduction. A complex lattice of canals lined with beautiful Renaissance houses and frequented by gondoliers, makes for one of the most romantic cities in the world. Charming cobbled streets lead to large open Piazzas where quaint boutiques rub shoulders with gourmet cafes and restaurants serving fresh Italian food and sparkling wine. Explore the attractive boutiques there and enjoy an Italian wine. Venice is an essential stop on any Adriatic yacht charter experience.
Dubrovnik to Venice: 10 Days
Day 1 & 2: Dubrovnik
One of the most popular and picturesque locations on the Mediterranean, the "Pearl of the Adriatic" is as stunning as it was five centuries ago. Stroll the charming narrow streets to the Old Town to sip coffee in outdoor cafes, shop amongst the high-end flower-covered storefronts and peek into enchanted gardens along the Stradum. In 1991 and 1992, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was devastated by Serbian shells however, the walled city remains whole.
Visit the farmer's market at the Gunduliceva Poljana and browse the sun-ripened figs, olives, spices, bags of lavender, and jars of homemade wine, brandy and honey. End your day by finding your way to Café Buza to see the sunset in addition to watching locals take shots of rakija and bravely cliff jump!
Near Dubrovnik's coastline, is lush and green Lokrum Island. Explore the island's 15th-century Benedictine monastery, ancient fortr, verdant gardens and secluded bathing coves. A restaurant is located in the former monastery, and walking routes round the island are marked out.
Day 3: Korcula
Cruise north to one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic Sea. The Greeks gave it the name Korkyra Melaina, or "Black Corfu", for its dark and densely wooded appearance. Rich in art and culture, enjoy the island's secluded beaches and bays, uninhabited islands and breathtaking views. The old town is a typical medieval walled Dalmatian city, with round defensive towers and cluster of red-roofed houses. Marco Polo, the famous world-traveler and writer, is said to have been born here. See the locals perform the sword dance Moreska, now only performed in Korcula.
Day 4: Hvar Island
Sophisticated, jet-set Hvar, is a lush and sunny Shangri-La with more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in Croatia. The usual shopping, nightlife and grand hotels offer diversions outside of the glitzy scene. Visit a vineyard for wine-tasting or see the lavender fields.
Day 5: Split
Home to some of the most spectacular Roman ruins in the world, Split is a living museum. Centered around the palace that Emperor Diocletian finished building here in 305 A.D, wandering the historic center of Split you can still clearly see the Roman walls, squares and temples.
Day 6, 7 & 8: The Islands of the Kornati Archipelago
Stroll the town of Sibenik and pretend you are in the Renaissance era. Then start navigating Cres, Porec, Sibenik, Losinj and Rab. All remote islands with hidden bays, golden beaches and historic towns.
Day 9 & 10: Venice
This sanctuary on a lagoon is virtually the same as it was six hundred years ago, which adds to the fascinating character. Don't miss San Marco Square which contains the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the Bell Tower of St. Mark (Campanile di San Marco) and the Clock Tower (Torre dell'Orologio).
