Say Buongiorno to Italian Cruising

Your journey begins amid the enchanting canals of Venice. Next, journey to Ravenna to view the city’s magnificent mosaics before setting sail for ​​Ancona and then a late stay in Kotor. Here, take in the architecture dating back to the Middle Ages. After a delightful day at sea, it’s on to Taranto and one of the best Magna Graecia museums in Italy. A late stay in Giardini Naxos means plenty of time to venture to the hilltop town of Taormina. In Palermo, relive the final scene of The Godfather at the Teatro di Massimo. Another late night is next, this time in Amalfi where you can visit the enchanting cloister. Finally, experience the intensely stunning views from the top in Sorrento before concluding your journey in the Eternal City of Rome.
