Russia’s Historic Hot Spot

Port: Sochi, Russia

Excursion: Long before this city was chosen to host the 2014 Winter Olympics, the region was a favorite retreat of Joseph Stalin. Tour the dictator’s austere 1937 dacha, still filled with his personal possessions. The day ends in the 30-acre subtropical Dendrary Botanical Garden (mind the roaming ostriches!).

Voyage: Celebrity Constellation, to and from Istanbul. October 14; celebritycruises.com; 11 nights from $2,499.
