Day 1: Rome, Italy

Tour Begins - Welcome to Rome. This evening, meet your fellow travellers over a welcome dinner.

Day 2: Rome, Italy

Classical Rome City Tour This morning, a locally guided tour of Classical Rome features such sights as the Piazza Venezia, the Roman Forum, the Circus Maximus, and the Arch of Constantine. During an in-depth visit to the Colosseum, your guide recounts its rich history. The mythic Pantheon, and Piazza Navona are also featured. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure. Perhaps a trip to Vatican City, with an optional tour to the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, will be on your personal sightseeing list.

Day 3: Florence/Pisa, Italy

This morning we continue to Florence – the “Cradle of the Italian Renaissance.” Upon arrival, discover the Academy Gallery to see Michelangelo’s magnificent sculpture of David. The remainder of the day is yours to explore Florence’s cultural riches independently.

Day 4: Florence/Pisa, Italy

This morning, meet a local expert for a walking tour of this city that is a work of art all its own. Your guide will highlight the Piazza del Duomo, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistry. You also visit the Piazza della Signoria with its impressive Palazzo Vecchio.

Day 5: Bologna, Italy

Today we travel the beautiful Emilia Romagna region to Bologna, Italy’s foodie capital. Join a local expert on a leisurely paced walking tour highlighting the culinary side of this historic city. Explore one of Bologna’s oldest food markets and check out traditional food shops. Discover Bologna’s culture, architecture and history as you enjoy tastings of cheese, cured meats, bread, chocolate, gelato and more. Then sit down for lunch at one of Bologna’s traditional restaurants. Later, continue to Venice, often called La Serenissima (the most serene) of cities. The remainder of the day is yours to independently explore the hidden spots of this charming city; perhaps you will take an optional gondola ride. The locals say the best way to get to know Venice is to "get lost" here.

Day 6: Venice, Italy

Explore enchanting Venice with its 117 tiny islands surrounded by a latticework of 150 canals and 400 bridges. Your Venetian journey opens on Murano Island* for a glass-blowing demonstration. Then we make our way to St. Mark’s Square, the city's lively hub. A local expert will guide you on a walking tour through the area highlighting St. Mark’s Basilica and the Clock Tower with its famous Moors. Gather tonight to toast the end of your Italian adventure at your farewell dinner.

Day 7: Venice, Italy

Tour Ends - Your tour comes to a close today, leaving you with many fond memories of incredible Italy.

Day 8-9: Venice, Italy

You could start a discussion about Venice by praising its restaurants, wine bars, marble churches or blown glass. But you probably won’t. You’ll likely start with the fact that Venice is built on water. It is a place where people either float slowly down palace-lined man-made waterways or stroll down narrow alleyways. There’s no more of an extraordinary place to find yourself, or lose yourself.

Day 10: Rijeka, Croatia

The third-largest city in Croatia, Rijeka is a bustling port that offers equal parts charm, culture, and history. From shopping in the lively central market & exploring Korzo, Rijeka’s busy promenade, to exploring the cathedrals and historic buildings, this city offers something for everyone who visits. Visit one of the most famous villages in Croatia (and one of the most dramatic Vrbnik Village in Krk Island & the old part of Rijeka where you’ll discover cathedrals, the Croatian National Theater, and quaint cafes and bars that are as inviting as the people of Rijeka.

Day 11: Split, Croatia

This Mediterranean city on the eastern shores of the Adriatic has a long and eventful history dating back to the awesome Diocletian’s Palace (circa 295 A.D.) in the centre of the city. Split offers cruise guests a wealth of exciting places to visit, from the majestic cathedral and marble streets in the centre of town to the harbour area with its cafe-filled promenades and views of coastal mountains.

Day 12: Dubrovnik, Croatia

Despite the magnificent 13th century walls that surround the city, Dubrovnik is one of the most welcoming cruise destinations in all of Europe. Dubbed “the pearl of the Adriatic”, this Croatian city exudes romantic charm and beautiful scenery with its shimmering marble streets, centuries-old buildings capped by bright orange roofs and lovely beaches ensconced between awesome rocky ledges.

Day 13: Kotor, Montenegro

Welcome to this beautiful port town in Montenegro. Gaze upon terracotta roofs, clear waters and fresh local seafood right by the sea. This is the perfect destination to sit back and relax amongst the towering mountains of Montenegro.

Day 14: At Sea

Your full day at sea will allow you to take full advantage of everything your ship has to offer. Seek out hidden treasures and make the most of the facilities onboard. If you packed full of fun activities then be sure to refer to the ship’s daily newsletter to keep up to date on everything offered onboard. If relaxation is on your mind then your sea day will allow you to sit back, soak in ship life and watch the world as it floats by you.

Day 15: Valletta, Malta

Valletta is famed for its historical aspects including churches, curated gardens, palaces and piazzas. The Magisterial Palace now houses the Maltese Parliament in it’s centuries old structure.

Day 16: Catania, Sicily

Welcome to the ancient port city of Catania, situated in the stunning east coast of Sicily. The city lays next to Mt. Etna, an active volcano which makes for a great hike and unmatched city views. Piazza del Duomo is located in the centre of the city, boasting the enchanting Fontana dell’Elefante statue and Catania Cathedral.

Day 17: Naples, Italy

Cruise to Naples, located on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, a city embellished in history. Touring around Naples’ grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles in the old centre will fill that cultural need. Pompeii is not too far either, a dashing city which boasts diverse cultural offerings and charming streets.

Day 18: Rome, Italy

Endless adventures await in Rome. With two and a half thousand years of history, art and culture, it is no wonder Rome is one of the most visited cities on the planet. Gaze at the masterpieces of the Vatican or walk into the past with visits to ancient relics, historic monuments and legendary museums. Or people-watch while sipping on an espresso in a quaint cafe.
