Despite its popularity, Corfu retains an idyll-like feel thanks to its sleepy hamlets, dreamy shores and tree-lined hills.
Split to Athens
This eastern Mediterranean adventure pairs Albania’s beach-lined riviera and walled Dubrovnik with four distinct Greek islands: classic Corfu, craggy Monemvasia, soulful Sifnos and art haven Hydra.

Leaving behind atmospheric Split and its Roman-era Diocletian’s Palace, we’ll sail down the Dalmatian Coast. Having explored the pine-forested island of Korcula, where Croatia’s finest white wines are made, you’ll get to admire Dubrovnik, whose ancient walls and Baroque lanes host many sophisticated restaurants. Less glitzy, but equally handsome, is Kotor, wedged between sheer mountains and a blue bay over in Montenegro, a medieval city, where café-covered squares edge Venetian palaces. Our next stop, charismatic Sarandë, is a resort-town gateway to the Albanian Riviera’s spectacular sandy beaches.
Now turning our attention to the Greek Islands, we begin with a classic. Despite its popularity, Corfu retains an idyll-like feel thanks to its sleepy hamlets, dreamy shores and tree-lined hills. Following a day at sea, we’ll lay eyes on amazing Monemvasia, where vertiginous cliffs soar from the sea to host an ancient kastro (fort).
Two quaint islands follow: pottery-making Sifnos is a vintage blend of whitewashed village and olive groves, while donkeys are the main mode of transportation along marble lanes on Hydra, which has long lured artists from Leonard Cohen to Sophia Loren. From there we sail to Piraeus, close to Athens and all of its glories.
