The Adriatic Sea separates Italy from the Balkan states of Croatia, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia. It contains over 1,300 islands, 69 of which are inhabited, but it's along the shores of the Adriatic countries where cruise ships call at a variety of town and city ports.
Dubrovnik is a popular stop on Adriatic cruises, famed for its distinctive Old Town with 16th century stone walls and limestone paved streets. Venice is another favourite Adriatic port; the top deck will offer the best views as your ship sails into this historic city which is made up of over 100 tiny islands. Montenegro's coastal town of Kotor is also well worth a visit as it has a stunning Old Town filled with Romanesque churches. If you're lucky enough to visit Slovenia, you'll see that Koper also has some fascinating ancient architecture and sweeping bay views.
Most Adriatic cruise holidays will be fly-cruises. Depending on the itinerary, you may start your cruise in Venice, Rome, Barcelona or Malta. It is possible to reach the Adriatic on a sailing from the UK, although the round trip will take at least two weeks.
