Join Archaeological Institute of America lecturer and host Ivančica (Vanča) Schrunk aboard a modern, 18-cabin yacht for a fall cruise along the spectacular coast of Croatia. Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Ottomans, and Austrians have vied for control of this strategic coastline that is dotted with over 1,000 islands. In a region well worth exploring for its natural beauty alone, you will visit spellbinding archaeological sites, impressive cathedrals, dramatic palaces, and ancient city centers. Begin the program in Slovenia’s capital city, Ljubljana, a city with roots back to Roman times. Discover magical Lake Bled, monumental karst caves, and mountain aeries before continuing to Rovinj, Croatia, to begin your seven-night Adriatic cruise from the Istrian Peninsula to Dubrovnik, calling at Veliki Brijun Island, Pula, Zadar, Šibenik, Split, Hvar, and Korčula along the way. A leisurely pace allows for free time in town to sample local cuisine and mingle with locals.
This program is co-sponsored by Carleton College, and their lecturer is medieval historian William North. Together, Drs. Schrunk and North will enrich your travel experience and understanding of the ancient and medieval history of this region through an onboard series of stimulating lectures as well as informal discussions. In addition, they, along with excellent local guides, will accompany you on excursions throughout the program.
Launched in 2018, the intimate Queen Eleganza yacht features a casual ambiance and the ability to call at small islands and ports inaccessible to larger cruise ships.
With only 18 cabins total, reserve your cabin today. Call AIA Tours at (800) 748-6262 or email aia@studytours.org
