Laura's Italy, Greece & Turkey Cruise
By Laura Burke
Setting off from Bari, Italy, our MSC Mediterranean cruise swept us through numerous enchanting ports — including Athens, Istanbul, Izmir & Corfu — culminating in the timeless beauty of Venice. One night pre-stay at Mercure Bari set the tone, followed by a post-cruise night at H10 Palazzo, framing our unforgettable journey.
What I Loved
The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is a fantastic spot for shopping. With its lively atmosphere and diverse stalls, you can find everything from souvenirs to local treats, creating a fun and casual experience that captures the essence of Istanbul's vibrant markets. Don't miss the chance to explore the maze of alleys for some unique, budget-friendly finds.
Food & Bars
In Bari, we enjoyed a satisfying meal at the hotel, savoring the diverse flavors of authentic Italian cuisine. In Venice, Ristorante Florida Venezia treated us to a delightful culinary experience, where the richness of Venetian gastronomy came to life with delectable seafood and pasta dishes.
