Short Description

Your 11-day guided tour of Venice and Eastern Mediterranean Europe includes visits to beautiful coastal cities throughout four countries—Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, and Montenegro. You’ll discover natural, historical, architectural, and cultural beauty during your affordable European tour of the east Adriatic coast. You’ll begin in the “floating city” of Venice, Italy—with its iconic landmarks, legendary canals, bridges, and piazzas. Your visit includes a boat ride along one of the major canals to St. Mark’s Square, time to enjoy cafes and churches, or a gondola ride if you choose. From Venice, travel to the picturesque fishing village of Piran, Slovenia, then to the seaside resort of Portorož. Consider a spa treatment, trip to a casino, or an excursion to the beautiful Istrian peninsula. On to Croatia, you’ll enjoy the stunning east Adriatic coast and the bay laurel woods of Opatija. Your escorted tour of Croatia includes the visit of Krka National Park in the Central Dalmatian region. Discover breathtaking waterfalls, water mills, and more than 200 species of birds—including eagles, ospreys, falcons, and owls. Your guided tour of the vibrant port city of Split with its 4th-century architecture includes the emperor’s palace. Venture to the “Pearl of the Adriatic”—Dubrovnik. A historic fortress city, incredible Dubrovnik is also known as a filming location for the TV series, Game of Thrones. Spend a full day in Montenegro including a visit to Kotor and a short boat ride to a tiny island with an iconic, tiny, world-famous church. Your affordable tour of Venice and the Eastern Adriatic coast is a trip you’ll remember for its beauty, history, and hidden gems.

I am a budget solo female traveler. I have traveled with COSMOS for about 20 years in the past, all over Europe, Switzerland, Turkey, etc. The best thing is that I never have to pay extra for single supplement when I room with someone. If Cosmos can not find a room mate for you, you end up having the whole room. Because of this feature, I was able to travel everywhere by my self with reasonable price. Cosmos always provides great value for the bucks. I would do it again. I highly recommend to you all.
