Aboard the 50-cabin Emerald Sakara
I invite you to join Archaeological Institute of America lecturer and host Ivančica (Vanča) Dvoržak Schrunk aboard the Emerald Sakara, a luxury 50-cabin yacht, for a summer cruise along the spectacular Adriatic coast. Through the centuries, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Ottomans, and Austrians have vied for control of this strategic coastline dotted with over 1,000 islands. In a region well worth exploring for its natural beauty alone, visit impressive archaeological sites, dramatic cathedrals and palaces, and ancient city centers that illuminate the layered history of the Dalmatian Coast.
Begin the program with a night in Dubrovnik, with time to explore the magnificent walled city. Then embark the spectacular, new Emerald Sakara for a seven-night Adriatic cruise. Launching in 2023, this beautiful, modern vessel is designed to allow access to smaller ports not accessible to larger cruise ships. Cruise along the Croatian coast from Dubrovnik to Venice, Italy, calling at Korčula, Split, Hvar, Šibenik, Zadar, and Rovinj. After navigating the traditional route past St. Mark’s Square in Venice, and docking within walking distance of the Square at San Basilio, you have the opportunity to participate in a two-night, post-tour extension in Venice, “La Serenissima.”
Engage with expert study leaders throughout this unique educational program, and gain a better appreciation of the region’s historical and cultural significance. Born in Zagreb, Croatia, AIA lecturer and host Vanča Schrunk will be joined onboard by historic preservation expert John Meffert and historian and archaeologist Michael McCormick to enrich your travel experience through an onboard series of stimulating lectures as well as informal discussions. In addition, excellent local guides will accompany you on excursions throughout the program.
With only 50 cabins available, and with this cruise being co-sponsored by other organizations, I encourage you to reserve your preferred cabin today by contacting AIA Tours at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 748-6262.
