Amalfi Coast & Mediterranean Cruise Details

Experience la dolce vita in Southern Italy and on a cruise of the Mediterranean. Visit 4 stunning nations whose food, scenery, and history are some of the finest in Europe.

The city of Rome is full of wonderful, world-famous list sites that came to symbolize the Ancient Roman Empire’s unparalleled strength and influence. The city of Naples is beautiful in an entirely different way. Enjoy food, historical sites, and dazzling ocean views before embarking on your Mediterranean cruise.

Your port stops include some of the most unique destinations in the Mediterranean. The island of Valletta is tiny but full of history, while Barcelona is as exciting as it is beautiful. Discover the Renaissance in Genoa, then travel back even further to Marseilles. France’s oldest city is more than 2,500 years old.

After returning to Naples for disembarkation, you’ll explore more of the beauty of the Amalfi coast, where colorful villages overlook the shining Mediterranean. The fascinating Pompeii is a bucket list destination for history lovers, who can travel back to this city frozen in time over 2,000 years ago. When it’s time for the tour to end, return to Rome and say arrivederci to Italy and the Mediterranean. Check out our Travel Blog for more tips and ideas!
