Take your time to discover Rome’s iconic landmarks before boarding our tall ship in Civitavecchia. We’ll sail south to Ponza, a hidden gem of an island where vibrant villages cling to hillsides, and Sorrento, a vertiginous town on the Amalfi Coast. We’ll spend time cruising around Stromboli, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, to view the ever-flowing lava, before arriving in sunny Sicily, to visit the much-loved town of Taormina with views of Mount Etna that need to be seen to be believed.
Our voyage around the Italian coast continues as we dock in Gallipoli and explore the delightful Old Town, which is located on a tiny island. We then hop over the Ionian sea to Albania, a bit of a newcomer to the sun, sea and sand-seeker’s holiday scene. Durres is a unique spot where Roman, Venetian and Byzantine relics meet more astute communist architecture.
Next up is Kotor, a medieval city in Montenegro. You’ll want to be out on deck as we sail in and out of the Bay of Kotor, as the scenery is spectacular. And then we’ll reach beautiful Croatia with its famous Dalmatian islands and striking port cities. We’ll visit the islands of Korcula and Hvar and end up in Split, a coastal city steeped in history.
Discover historical landmarks including Pompeii and Herculaneum. In Albania explore the ancient city of Apollonia and in Korcula escape to Croatian vineyards for a taste of the local wine. Visit some of Hvar’s most beautiful parts as you head off the beaten track in a 4×4.
