Sailing south from Civitavecchia, Rome’s gateway port, our first stop is the fortress town of Agropoli. If you don’t fancy its historic centre, where an attractive tangle of cobbled streets frame a castle, visit Paestum’s sprawling, splendid ancient Greek ruins or roam the beautiful, surrounding Cilento – one of Italy’s most underrated seaside regions. Far more famous is the Amalfi Coast, where we’ll drop anchor at Sorrento. You could sip limoncellos in this lofty town after an ultra-scenic hike.
You could admire Positano’s pastel-coloured houses, or take the ferry to chichi, cove-lined Capri. Or you could head to frozen-in-time Pompeii, its village abandoned when adjacent volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 CE. A day at sea allows us to cross the glittering Med and reach Corsica, a French territory full of independent spirit. Its northeastern city of Bastia is close to Cap Corse, a spindly peninsula replete with photogenic fishing villages, and to the Agriates Desert’s wild, wondrous sandy beaches. Returning to Italy, we’ll next discover Livorno. Pisa’s leaning tower beckons, as do vineyards and hilltowns in rural Tuscany, but this old trading centre’s own canal-lined, Venetian-style quarter shouldn’t be overlooked.
