A stop at Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic
One of the cities which the MSC Orchestra will stop at on its Mediterranean tour is Dubrovnik, a natural wonder that will be a delight for anyone who has been waiting all winter to take a trip.
Bernard Shaw once said that if anyone wants to see heaven on earth they should come to Dubrovnik, a city that has been a source of inspiration for many authors. A stroll down Stradun, the city’s most colorful avenue, presents visitors with a wide variety of sights, including local handicrafts and 15th century historical buildings. On the Dubrovnik Riviera, you can enjoy the sun and the sea on some of the best-preserved beaches on the Mediterranean or explore pine forests dotted with tropical vegetation.
Dubrovnik is a significant world heritage site and the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings in the city are being restored to their former glory with a project coordinated by UNESCO.
The MSC Orchestra will rediscover the charm of Venice
Venice is a romantic Italian city that will be the next stop on MSC Orchestra’s wonderful Mediterranean tour. A ride on a gondola when stopping in Venice will truly bring out the romantic side of the city.
Two of the city’s important cultural treasures are the glassworkers in Murano and the lace makers in Burano, who offer visitors the opportunity to examine local craftsmanship which has been handed down over the centuries. Next on the tour is Bari, considered to be the second most important city in southern Italy. Bari’s shorelines and cuisine make it a tourist center that is definitely worth seeing.

The stadium where the Olympic Games were born and the temples of Hera and Apollo are a few of the sites that can be toured when the MSC Orchestra stops in Greece. Passengers can also enjoy the wonderful Mediterranean sun on Katakolon’s beaches.
