The innovative design and quality materials make Costa Luminosa gleam like a jewel. Art is the main attraction aboard Costa Luminosa, starting from the precious sculpture, "Reclining Woman 2004", by Fernando Botero that fills the Central Hall of the ship. Of course, as the name suggests, Costa Luminosa is inspired by the play of light enhanced by Murano glass chandeliers, iridescent fabrics and transparent crystals from particular theatrical lighting that enhances the beauty. Starting from the Supernova Atrium, you will be able to admire the brightest stars in the universe that will accompany you through every environment: in the Taurus and Andromeda restaurants, at the Vega Casino, and at the Antares, Sirius, and Elettra bars.

International flight with a good itinerary.
Day 2: Venice
Arrival at Venice airport. Transfer to your hotel the Delfino (or similar). The rest of the day is free to explore this wonderful city.
Venice, home of romance, well known as the city of water, also knows as "La Serenissima." The port of Venice and the city itself looks out towards the Adriatic Sea. The city of the Doges is situated in the middle of a lagoon, has more canals than roads and boasts incredible beauty and a unique charm derived from centuries of history. The best way to see the city and to discover and admire the palaces and churches is to travel along the canals in a gondola. This will take you to Piazza San Marco, the site of the Doge's Palace, a jewel of Venetian architecture.

After breakfast at your hotel, you will be transferred to the port of Venice for boarding on the magnificent Costa Luminosa cruise ship.
Beginning of your cruise.

Day 4: Trieste (Italy)
The best way to understand this central European city is to enjoy a coffee in the famous square, Piazza Unità d’Italia, situated just in front of Italy’s largest port.
The port of Trieste overlooks the Adriatic Sea and is a historic place, bathed in sunshine, buffeted by the wind and rich in culture. Climatic, geographical and historical characteristics make it an exceptional place, unique of its kind. Take your time to take a tour around the Karst hills, where you will be captivated by the wild natural landscape. The Miramare Castle and its park overlooking the Adriatic Sea are also a must-see: Emperor Maximilian made it an exceptional place where art and nature live in harmony.
Arrival: 07:00 am
Departure: 01:00 pm
Day 5: Dubrovnik (Croatia)
Facing the Adriatic Sea, the city is famous for its walls, built in stages from ancient times to the present, surrounding it, along with the port. Its splendid historical center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, exudes charm at every corner: the pearl of the Adriatic, as Lord Byron called it.
Dubrovnik is located in the south of Croatia, on the Dalmatian coast, and is protected from the bora and Scirocco. This means that its climate is pleasant, even in the summer months. Its sea is among the cleanest and bluest in the world and, breathing deeply on the coast, you cannot help but feel the scent of pine trees, which surround the beaches and cool the hottest hours of the day. The beaches, amongst the most beautiful of the whole of Croatia, are uncrowded and perfect for romantic evenings by the sea.
Arrival: 07:00 am
Departure: 01:00 pm
Day 6: Olympia (Katakolon, Greece)
During the stopover in Katakolon, treat yourself to a visit to the port located on the Bay of Agios Andreas; despite having undergone several changes, it has managed to retain its historic soul. Do not miss the chance to visit the archaeological site of Olympia, one of the largest in Greece, which hosted the first Panhellenic Olympic Games. Katakolon is a small tourist town: have fun and discover the ways of its inhabitants, stroll among flowering streets and sit in one of the many cafés.
Arrival: 12:00 pm
Departure: 06:00 pm
Day 7: Athens (Pireo, Greece)
The cradle of Greek culture, Athens welcomes us to its port of Piraeus, watching us from above the wonderful Acropolis.
Piraeus is the port of Athens, the largest in Europe, allowing you to visit the city, a place of dreams. A place of emigration, it has inspired numerous songs. Most ships will be making a stop in Athens before resuming the Mediterranean route or returning to the Atlantic. Take the time to visit the Acropolis and maybe the museum located at its base.

Departure: 06:00 pm
Day 8: At sea
Take advantage of this day at sea to discover the different facilities of the Costa Luminosa cruise ship.

Bari is the Sun of Italy. In its beautiful old town are many churches, while the ladies prepare the famous orecchiette on tables in the street.
The port of Bari, on the Adriatic coast, is primarily a passenger port. During the stop in Bari, visit this historic city and its surroundings, especially Matera, designated by UNESCO as the 2019 European Capital of Culture. “Bari Vecchia” is the old part of the city that, with its partly Norman and partly Swabian fortress, the Romanesque Basilica of Saint Nicholas built on the ruins of the Byzantine Palace, the 12th century cathedral of San Sabino and a dozen little churches of the same period, still bears the traces of conquerors who succeeded over the centuries.
