Summer vacation: Cruise trip to the Adriatic and Aegean Sea from Venice (part 2)

With Cost Fortuna, we visited 6 cities, namely Bari (Italy), Olympia, Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes (Greece), Dubrovnik (Croatia). Among them, I especially enjoyed the Greek islands.

Bari (Italy):
The old town is right there after getting off from the ship. We browsed with a cone of gelato. Our son played in a park.

Olympia (Greece):
It is the original site of the Olympic games. Its spirit somehow took over our son and he wanted to lift up a huge piece of stone several times. I could not help just dashing in a straight run within the ancient arena. Although we joined the excursion, it is a choice not to go Olympia but to browse near the port.

Santorini (Greece):
We visited the town of OIA that you see often in post cards. We joined the excursion and wished we could have had more time to walk around there.

Mykonos (Greece):
The entrance to the main street is right there after getting off the boat. We walked along the street, watched the sunset from a small sandy beach near the port, and had a Greek dinner. We met the famous pelican. We could enjoy just spending a week on this island. After the trip, I heard that Haruki Murakami also liked spending time there.

Rhodes (Greece):
The beach of the Aegean Sea was beautiful. Our son loved the ocean.

Dubrovnik (Croatia):
We went up the hill by cable car (I recommend this). The view from there was worth seeing. The gelato was good in the town.
