Italy, Montenegro & Croatia Cruise - 15 Days (Royal Clipper) itinerary:

show reverse itinerary
Day 1 Civitavecchia (Port for Rome), Italy
St. Peter's, with its breathtaking Sistine Chapel, newly restored to its former glory; the Spanish Steps, where all Rome passes by; the Colosseum, where gladiators fought to the death, and the Pantheon, considered to be the most perfect architectural statement of the ages.
Day 2 Ponza & Palmarola, Italy
The pastel houses of Ponza Town rise in neat terraced rows from the busy harbour where sleekly groomed yachts and ramshackle fishing boats moor side by side. Happily, there are few tourists here, so it's a delight to wander through the unspoiled town. Palmarola is a snorkelling heaven that is part of a group called The Pontine Islands, located off the coast between Rome and Naples. A craggy landscape with pink coral beaches and emerald coves beckons so don't forget your swimsuit and flippers. Totally unique, isolated and stunning.
Day 3 Sorrento, Italy (Optional Tour Capri or Pompeii)
Sorrento, whose city walls rise straight out of the sea, is located on the lovely Amalfi Coast and overlooks the Bay of Naples. Optional excursions might include taking a trip back in history to Pompeii, where the ashen remains of ancient Romans lie frozen in time.
Day 4 Sailing in Stromboli area & Lipari, Italy
Italy's seven volcanic Aeolian Islands, just off the north coast of Sicily, are obviously a place favored by the Gods. In Lipari, climb narrow streets to the medieval castello and enjoy a secluded beach. As Royal Clipper sails past Isola Strómboli, watch the sky for frequent volcanic fireworks.
Day 5 Giardini Naxos (port for Taormina), Sicily - Italy
Barreling under full sail through the narrow Strait of Messina past Scylla and Charybdis, where rock and whirlpool almost claimed Ulysses, you arrive in lovely Taormina. Perched on the shoulder of Mt. Etna, Taormina inspired Goethe to say that “It is the greatest work of art and nature.”
Day 6 At sea
Day 7 Corfu, Greece
The lushest (and some say the loveliest) of all the Greek Islands, Corfu lies just a stone's throw from the Albanian coast. Nowhere is the stunning natural beauty of Corfu more evident than in the small village of Paleocastritsa, where legend says Odysseus was washed ashore to be rescued by Nausicaa.
Day 8 Kotor, Montenegro
This stunning rock-walled chasm splitting the coastal mountains of Montenegro is the longest arm of the sea in southern Europe. Boka harbours one of the prettiest, unspoiled towns you'll ever see, the medieval city of Kotor. Founded by the Romans, fortified during the Byzantine era, then ruled by Venice for much of its history, Kotor has been naturally preserved by its isolation.
Day 9 Dubrovnik, Croatia
It was George Bernard Shaw who said, “Those who seek paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik.” Indeed, Dubrovnik is a treasure by any measure made more precious by its miraculous restoration. Crowned by the Minceta Tower, the 10th century city walls are the proud symbol of Dubrovnik's colourful history.
Day 10 Korcula, Croatia
Framed by dense green forests of allepo pine and twisted cypress, the red tile roofs of Korcula, whose most famous native son was Marco Polo, form an inviting picture. The pale wheat-coloured stone Cathedral of St. Mark houses a treasure trove of Dalmatia
Day 11 Hvar, Croatia
The heavenly scent of lavender perfumes the air in the fields and valleys around the island of Hvar. Idyllically located just off the Dalmatian Coast, the island and the little port named after it have been a favorite getaway ever since the time of the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians and even Austro-Hungarian royalty.
Day 12 Cres, Croatia
Cres is joint largest of Croatia's 718 islands, of which only 47 are inhabited. It is excellent for hiking so be sure to bring good walking shoes. The highlight is the tiny deserted fort village of Lubenice, which is nominated to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It sits 380m high above the Adriatic sea. The views from the site make the effort to get there worth it.
Day 13 Rovinj, Croatia
Rovinj is a typical example of a Mediterranean town. The town is dominated by the Baroque three-nave church of St. Euphemia (Fuma). Close to the harbour are the clock tower, the Baroque Balbi's Arch and the former 17th century Town Hall. To the east lies the complex of the Franciscan monastery and to the south, Rovinj's oldest monument, the Romanesque heptagonal chapel of the Holy Trinity.
Day 14 Piran, Slovenia
At the tip of the Piran Peninsula sits Slovenia's hidden gem. Despite its modest size, Piran boasts some of the country's finest architecture, history and cuisine Resembling an open-air museum, the town's Venetian influence is evident throughout its narrow streets. Visit the 19th century Tartini Square, named after famous violinist and composer Giuseppe Tartini, and St. George's Church, dramatically situated hilltop.
Day 15 Venice, Italy
Venice is the heart and soul of romance. Cast your eye on the rounded domes of San Marco, take a deep breath at the Bridge of Sighs, gaze on the golden lions and the Renaissance glories of the Doge's Palace, listen for the ghosts of Verdi, Puccini and Caruso at La Fenice Opera House, gape at the classic Palladian proportions of the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, glide in a gondola down the Grand Canal. And know that love is always in the air in Venice.

Royal Clipper

Royal Clipper carries just 227 guests in luxurious style. The spacious decks include three inviting swimming pools. Find your very own world of privacy on one of the hidden balconies on either side of the bow, or go to even further lengths to get the best seat in the house. Passengers are invited to climb the mast (with safety harness provided) and take in the views from the converted crow’s nest which not only offers the chance for a brief moment of reflection, but also provides the most unparalleled views of the lands and seas around you.

If you thought the exterior areas were impressive, you will be even more amazed by Royal Clipper’s interior spaces. Included in these is a three-deck atrium that enables sunlight to flood into the elegantly appointed, three-tiered dining room; featuring unreserved seating, meticulously prepared cuisine and an easy-going dress code which aims to make everyone feel included.

And if your time isn't taken up by searching out distant lands from the crow’s nest or enjoying a lovingly prepared meal in the dining room; you can always take a seat in the observation lounge, find solitude in the library or pamper yourself in the spa and health club, located in the unique Captain Nemo Lounge. Here you will even find underwater glass portholes which mean that even the secrets of the deep are open to those who sail aboard.

The legendary Preussen, the largest, fastest sailing ship the world had ever seen was launched in 1902. She ruled the seas for just eight years before she was involved in an accident in 1910. Royal Clipper was inspired by the Preussen and has the proud distinction of being the largest and only five-masted full-rigged sailing ship built since her predecessor was launched on her maiden voyage from Bremerhaven. With her complement of 42 sails, with a combined area of 56,000 square feet, Royal Clipper stands out amongst her peers in more ways than one.

Heavier, longer and with the ability to carry more passengers than both Star Clipper and Star Flyer this extraordinary vessel cuts through the the waves in majestic fashion and leaves all that sail in her awestruck.

For all the characteristics that she possesses from the grand age of sail, Royal Clipper is as new and thoroughly modern, boasting a state-of-the-art navigation systems to prove it. She also combines beauty with comfort by offering  onboard luxury. For passionate travellers and sail cruising connoisseurs, the 439 foot Royal Clipper offers a sea-going experience like no other; finding an undeniable balance between the grandeur, adventure and tradition of classic sailing and the superb facilities, cabins and conveniences associated with the finest modern yacht.
