An exclusive trip for Nada's Italy Signature Travelers on one of the world's most luxurious cruise ships.

9 Days/8 Nights (1 Night in Venice, 7 Nights onboard the Azamara Pursuit)*

Starting at $5,550 per person (including all shore excursions).


Celebrate Nada's Italy 15th Anniversary with Nada and our past travelers on this once-in-a-lifetime trip to Croatia!
Experience the world's wonders from your boutique hotel at sea. After a day or night spent immersed exploring the intriguing destinations, you'll have a private club-like ship to come back to. The Azamara Pursuit is crafted with an onboard experience akin to a stay in one of the world's most exclusive hotels. Comfortable and never crowded, you'll be able to enjoy unobstructed views of Croatia's ever-changing panorama of ancient coastal towns, wooded islands, and rocky coasts.

One of Europe’s hottest travel destinations, Croatia is renowned for its scenic blue bays, spectacular beaches, and medieval architecture.


But what really sets the country apart is its welcoming culture, with a strong emphasis on local food and wine, folk traditions, and vibrant nightlife.Your first Croatian destination is Rijeka, where stunning architecture, historic monuments, excellent museums, and delicious seafood await. From Zadar, visit the cascading waterfalls in Krka National Park. Then it’s on to Croatia’s Inside Passage, where only smaller ships can sail. An overnight and late-night stay are perfect for exploring Split’s Diocletian Palace and the great walled city of Dubrovnik—both UNESCO World Heritage Sites—while still giving you enough time to discover local flavors. Enjoy the many jaw-dropping sites of Hvar, and be sure to try a crisp white posip, since the city is considered one of the top winemaking regions in Croatia. Then stroll the streets of Sibenik to see its many churches, fortresses, and charming shops and squares.
One more reason to love this voyage? It conveniently begins and ends in Venice, ideal for adding on a pre-or-post-Signature Extension stay in one of the world’s most beautiful countries.

*Nada's Italy works with centrally-located luxury boutique hotels of the highest quality standards and amenities, which we regularly inspect and evaluate. For specific information about accommodations selected for this tour, please contact us with your travel dates.

Friday | Day 1 | Welcome to Venice

Arrival in Venice, check into a luxury boutique hotel and meet up with the rest of the group for a walking tour through the city's neighborhoods and most important landmarks, including the Rialto Bridge, Piazza San Marco, and St. Mark's Basilica. Experience one of the most captivating—and romantic—cities in the world with our expert City Guide, who will show you the city’s hidden maze of alleyways and bridges, then hop on a private water taxi to enjoy a leisure ride alongside sumptuous palaces lining the Grand Canal. Enjoy a Welcome dinner with the group and overnight in Venice.

Meals included: breakfast, dinner 


Saturday | Day 2 | Beautiful Burano

This morning we are taking a trip to the Island community of Burano by private boat, where you will have plenty of free time to explore and shop around. This colorful fishing village appears to be worlds away from bustling Venice. Burano is very known for exquisitely hand-embroidered linens, which you will find in the family-owned boutiques that have been here for generations. As you explore its quiet neighborhoods, you will feel as though you are almost trespassing, as locals often use public areas to lay out their laundry to dry or temporarily place children's toys. You'll notice that front doors are left wide open, as community and trust are at the basis of living here. This pristine village is truly a magical place.

Then, return to Venice where you will be boarding the Azamara Pursuit.

Meals included: dinner on the ship


Sunday | Day 3 | Stunning Rijeka

Rijeka is our first stop and a truly fascinating place to explore. The Governor’s Palace offers grand views over the harbor and of the grand Hapsburg interiors inside. Next climb the 16th century Petar Kruzic Stairway to the top of Trsat hill to visit the Church of Our Lady. Finally, ferry to the islands around the bay: cycle around Kirk, then stop at Baska beach - beautiful sand, clear water and “ice cream stands galore.”

Meals included: on the ship


Monday | Day 4 | Breathtaking Zadar

Old meets new in beautiful Zadar. Walk quaint cobblestone streets from a bygone era that give way to modern marvels of architecture and technology. Escape the city and explore two national parks—Krka and Plitvice—both teeming with natural beauty. Afterwards, sample Maraschino, a traditional liqueur made from marasca cherries and produced in Zadar distilleries since the 16th century.

Meals included: on the ship


Tuesday | Day 5 | Captivating Split

Venture to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Diocletian’s Palace, which dates back to the 4th century. Let intuition be your guide as you spend the day meandering through the cobblestone streets. Wander down to the water’s edge and stroll along the Riva, the spectacular white marble-esque promenade. And if you do lose your bearings, one of the locals will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Meals included: on the ship


Wednesday | Day 6 | The Alluring Town Of Dubrovnik

From the moment you step beyond the stonewalls that protects Dubrovnik, you’ll understand what makes it so special. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is adorned with charming squares and centuries-old red-roofed buildings. Walk the walls for a spectacular view of the city, and if anything looks familiar, it’s probably because Dubrovnik is the home of King’s Landing on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Meals included: on the ship


Thursday | Day 7 | Exploring Hvar

Known as the “Sunniest Place in Europe”, Hvar receives an average of 7.7 hours of sunshine per day. So sunbathing is a favorite pastime here, especially at the beaches of Dubovica and the Pakleni Islands. There are plenty more jaw-dropping sights to see here: lush olive groves, fruit orchards, fields of lavender, and dozens of vineyards, since Hvar is one of the top winemaking regions in Croatia.

Meals included: on the ship


Friday | Day 8 | Ending Our Journey In Venice

Friday through Saturday you revisit one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in Italy! Explore the city and see the canals once more as you finalize your amazing journey across the sea. Take advantage of all the amenities onboard the vessel and enjoy all the city has to offer.

Meals included: on the ship
