TO 5:00 PM Rome

day 1 Rome, Italy


Rome, Italy
Devour (or at least taste) 2,000 years of history: Stones brought to life by Michelangelo, the clash of ghostly gladiators in the Colosseum, the treasures of the Vatican. Or mingle with the locals and get in the mood for your upcoming yacht adventure by renting a boat on the lake in Villa Borghese, a tranquil park in the middle of the city. Afterwards, join the nightly passeggiata (promenade) along the Corso. Molto bello!
SAT OCT 29
8:00 AM TO 6:00 PM Catania

day 3 Catania, Italy


Catania, Italy
In this fascinating city nestled at the foot of Mount Etna you’ll find a thriving downtown that is not only the active city center, but a historic UNESCO World Heritage Site, combining the best of ancient and modern city style. Your options are as wide as your imagination. Explore the temperamental volcano that has reshaped the city many times, visit the beautiful setting of Taormina where stunning views and beautiful antiquities vie for your attention or the UNESCO site of Tantalica. If you prefer, explore the ancient city of Syracuse, called by Cicero himself “the most beautiful of all,” and another UNESCO site. 
SUN OCT 30
8:00 AM TO 11:59 PM Valletta

day 4 Valletta, Malta


Valletta, Malta
Malta’s capital city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is among the world’s smallest, yet definitely most charming.  Graced with the paintings of Caravaggio and kissed by beautiful shorelines, you’ll find photographic icons at almost every turn.  Not to be missed is a visit to the stately Palazzo Parisio to glimpse the enchanting lifestyle of Malta’s nobility.  Our stay here also allows the exquisite romance of an evening walk through the beautiful lanes of Mdina, Malta’s enigmatic “Silent City.” 
MON OCT 31
7:00 AM TO 6:00 PM Gozo

day 5 Gozo, Malta


Gozo, Malta
Pretty Xlendi Bay lies on the west coast of Gozo, an island long thought to be the mythical Ogygia of Homer’s Odyssey. In the story, Calypso fell in love with Odysseus and held him captive for seven years.. The reputed Calypso Cave is just one of several intriguing caves on the island. There’s also Caroline’s Cave, a natural grotto that was once a private swimming hole for nuns. Surprisingly for such a small island, Gozo is home to the oldest freestanding temples in the world, the Ggantija Temples, nestled among the rolling green hills. You should also visit the Citadella, a small, fortified town that houses the island’s Cathedral, the Museum of Archaeology, the Folklore Museum, and the Old Prisons.  
TUE NOV 1
8:00 AM TO 5:00 PM Porto Empedocle

day 6 Porto Empedocle, Italy


Porto Empedocle, Italy
Here you’ll find what are widely acclaimed as the best, ancient ruins in the entire Mediterranean. Imagine the wonders of Athens, of Ephesus, of legendary Olympia itself. Then imagine them all in one place, at Agrigento, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As you wander the verdant ridge overlooking the Mediterranean you will be transported to the 5th and 6th centuries. The irresistible scent of olive, almond, and eucalyptus trees will entice you back to the present. This is one of the world’s most beautiful sites. 
WED NOV 2
8:00 AM TO 4:00 PM Trapani

day 7 Trapani, Italy


Trapani, Italy
At once ancient and contemporary, Trapani is a city of contrasts. From the salt marshes that produce much of the Mediterranean’s signature colored salts, to the intricate mosaics of Mozia and the famous wines of Marsala, to the best view in all of Sicily from the medieval hill town of Erice where the colorful gardens are rivaled only by the cannolis for pure sensory delight. The line of 17th century windmills, still hard at work in ancient Phoenician salt marshes beckons you to return to Trapani again and again. 
THU NOV 3
8:00 AM TO 4:00 PM Lipari

day 8 Lipari, Italy


Lipari, Italy
Join the other exclusive yachts in the harbor for a delightful day absorbing Lipari’s unique atmosphere. Only reachable by sea, and only by small ships, this island in the Aeolians retains a timeless Sicilian charm. Storm the castle once sacked by Red Beard the pirate. Peer in Bartholomew Cathedral for a look at its exquisite ceiling frescoes. Or just stroll about town enjoying views of the clear blue bay and the smoke signals emanating from the neighboring island of Stromboli.
FRI NOV 4
8:00 AM TO 11:59 PM Sorrento

day 9 Sorrento, Italy


Sorrento, Italy
UNESCO World Heritage Sites abound in Sorrento.   Optional tours will take you to the archaeological areas of Pompei and Torre Annunziata, or the 4th century B.C. city of Herculaneum. Perhaps your choice will be a boat ride to Positano, the legendary home of the Sirens. Perched on a terrace on the spectacular Amalfi Coast, Sorrento offers exceptional views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. 
SAT NOV 5
8:00 AM TO 4:00 PM Capri

day 10 Capri, Italy


Capri, Italy
The Isle of Capri (pronounced KAH-pree) has a resort tradition dating back to the ancient Roman emperors and continuing on through royalty-slash-celebrities including Jackie Onassis and Grace Kelly. Climb to the Gardens of Augustus for a wonderful view of the Faraglioni, three huge limestone stacks that jut from the sea. Don’t miss the caves of the Blue Grotto with its eerie blue light.
SUN NOV 6
7:00 AM TO Rome

day 11 Rome, Italy


Rome, Italy
Devour (or at least taste) 2,000 years of history: Stones brought to life by Michelangelo, the clash of ghostly gladiators in the Colosseum, the treasures of the Vatican.
