Sailing out of Venice, past iconic sights like St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace, is both "surreal and sublime", according to Traveller. Experience it for yourself on a 7-night cruise which also includes stops in southern Italy, Greece, Albania and Croatia. Now less than £500 per person, this package makes the ideal introduction to cruising and saves up to £324 on prices we've seen elsewhere.

After sailing out from the waterborne city of Venice, you'll cruise south down the coast to Bari, the capital of Italy's sunny "heel", Puglia. This under-the-radar region has "everything the Italophile craves", says Lonely Planet, so you can potter round the streets for rich history, culture and food in abundance.

Next, you'll sail across the Adriatic Sea to Katakolon, a Greek fishing port complete with bobbing fishing boats and pretty waterfront cafés. From here, you can take an optional excursion to ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games.

You'll continue to Mykonos, a glamorous island in the Cyclades, followed by Piraeus, from where you can take excursions to Athens.

Next, you'll call at Saranda, a pretty Albanian town in a crescent-moon bay crowned by a golden castle, and Dubrovnika UNESCO World Heritage city of tumbling red rooftops and winding cobbled alleys. You'll then sail back to Venice for your flight home.

Ship details
The 1976-passenger MSC Lirica is a traditional cruise ship with "Italian flair", according to Cruise Critic. It is one of the fleet's smaller ships, and its "spacious yet intimate enviroment" (Cruise Reviews) and manageable size makes it ideal for first-time cruisers.
