    From Venice, we set sail for Croatia and its many hidden treasures. Le Lyrial slips effortlessly through the turquoise Adriatic Sea, wending her way between necklaces of islands dotted here and there off the Dalmatian Coast.

    There are cities which thrive on their legend – and Venice, the City of Doges is one of these with its many offshoots lined with multi-colored stonework and its black gondolas.

    You will be exploring the wild beauty and pearls of theAdriatic: ancient ruins, a wealth of art, and timeless cities just waiting to be discovered, such as Dubrovnik, Kotor and Rovinj.

    LE LYRIAL

    Fourth ship in this superb series loyal to the PONANT spirit, Le Lyrial like her sisterships embodies the subtle alliance between luxury, intimacy and wellbeing which is PONANT’s signature. The elegance of her exterior and interior lines and her intimate size (only 122 staterooms and suites) make this a rare and innovative yacht on the cruise market.

     

    Interior Design
    We have been inspired by the destinations we visit and decided to create a subtle variation around a palette of blues. Ranging from the luminous delicate grey-blue of the Polar ice to splashes of the vivid turquoise blue found in Mediterranean coves, it also includes the blue light of the future pole star.

    Port of call & excursions

    23 May 2017 - Korcula

    Venice

    Emabarkation 23/05/2017 from 16H00 to 17H00 . Departure 23/05/2017 at 18H00 .

    Proud and eternal, Venice has reigned on its lagoon ever since the 6th century. You may think you know this city before even setting foot here. You will inevitably fall in love with the charm of the innumerable treasures of the Serenissima: Saint Mark’s square, the basilica, Doges palace, the Grand Canal and the gondolas. Yet, secret Venice is also waiting for you to explore its little interlacing streets and canals, to ramble through its squares and to push open the doors of its churches. The city’s extraordinary heritage shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a glass of Spritz and a few tramezzini.

    24 May 2017 - Korcula

    24 May 2017 - Korcula

    Arrival 24/05/2017 at 14H30 . Departure 24/05/2017 at 22H00 .

    This harbour town has a very special location, presiding on a spur on the north-eastern coast of the island of Kor?ula. The ramparts in its medieval district provide perfect vantage points over the Pelješac peninsula. To get there, you can take the monumental staircase in the Revelin Tower.Another way is to climb the steps in the shade of palm trees from the MorskaVrata (Marine portal). As you make your way through the little streets, you’ll see the bell-tower of Saint-Mark’s cathedral rise above you. This landmark will help you locate the house where Marco Polo was born. The island also has some of its own famous wines like the red Plavac and the white Posip.

    25 May 2017 - Sibenik

    25 May 2017 - Sibenik

    Arrival 25/05/2017 at 07H00 . Departure 25/05/2017 at 08H30 .

    25 May 2017 - Split

    25 May 2017 - Split

    Arrival 25/05/2017 at 12H00 . Departure 25/05/2017 at 20H30 .

    On the Dalmatian coast, the town of Split offers cultural visits in a seaside atmosphere. Close to the seafront shaded by palm trees, the historical centre listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, boasts a unique building: the Diocletian’s Palace. Here you will explore its galleries, courtyards with carved columns, as well as a former mausoleum converted into a church, namely Saint Domnius Cathedral. If you get peckish, stop off at a terrace in the Pjaca, the main square in the old town, where you can try a pala?inka, a kind of pancake topped with melted cheese.

    26 May 2017 - Dubrovnik

    26 May 2017 - Dubrovnik

    Arrival 26/05/2017 at 07H00 . Departure 26/05/2017 at 23H45 .

    Emblem of the Dalmatian coast, Dubrovnik is magnificently positioned on a rocky spur. History is sovereign here, in this ancient city, now a listed UNESCO World Heritage site. You will perhaps be surprised by the proportions of La Placa, the central drag through the city. The sheer width of it can be explained by the fact that it straddles a former lagoon. The elegant houses along La Placa are built in the legendary travertine stone. At Pile gate, you will be greeted by the statue of the patron saint of Dubrovnik, and you can admire the coastline as you walk along the ramparts. But what’s inside FortSaint John, adjoining the outer walls? A maritime museum and an aquarium featuring rare fish from the Adriatic.

    27 May 2017 - Kotor

    27 May 2017 - Kotor

    Arrival 27/05/2017 at 09H00 . Departure 27/05/2017 at 20H00 .

    28 May 2017 - Hvar

    Arrival 28/05/2017 at 07H00 . Departure 28/05/2017 at 18H00 .

    Off the coast of Split, Hvar will surprise you by its traditions that haven’t changed since Antiquity. The country’s oldest town, Stari Grad, is here on this Dalmatian Island. The town nestles by a cove on the north-west coast, surrounded by dry stone wall structures on the Stari Grad plains. These have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site because they were built in the time of the Ancient Greeks.  From these parcels of land come wines and olive oil manufactured manually. In the upper part of town, you will discover hams and cheeses made by local producers. The picturesque village of Vrisnik is a good place to try some of local produce.

    29 May 2017 - Pula

    29 May 2017 - Pula

    Arrival 29/05/2017 at 08H00 . Departure 29/05/2017 at 12H00 .

    The Pearl of the Adriatic, lying at the southern tip of the Istrian Peninsula, Pula is undoubtedly the most Roman of all Croatian towns. Some of the greatest pages in history were written here, as the breathtaking ancient remains testify. Take your pick exploring the amphitheatre, the Renaissance Communal Palace, the Venetian Fort, and others. Stroll through the busy lanes in the old town, enjoying the warm welcome of the locals, and perhaps you‘ll be tempted to try the famous Kvarner scampi or Istrian ham.

    29 May 2017 - Rovinj

    29 May 2017 - Rovinj

    Arrival 29/05/2017 at 14H30 . Departure 29/05/2017 at 22H00 .

    Rovinj is located in Istria, a region bordering Slovenia. This becomes apparent as you walk through its old cobblestoned town.  There are many monuments of Venetian influence here. If you study the Balbi arch, you will see the winged lion, symbol of Venice. The bell-tower erected beside Saint Euphemia Cathedral was designed like the bell of St. Marc in Venice. From the top of the tower, you can scan the entire historical district. To absorb its quaint atmosphere, take a walk in the ochre and sepia-coloured streets leading to bustling squares and terraces shaded by canvas awnings.

    30 May 2017 - Venice
