SAT APR 25
TO 5:00 PM Rome

day 1 Rome, Italy


Rome, Italy
In this enchanting city the past and present intersect in perfect harmony. Casually intermingled among ancient ruins and majestic cathedrals are the trappings of a modern metropolis: Skyscrapers,cafes, boutiques selling designer footwear. But of course what you seek first in the heart of Rome is its breathtaking history.  A good place to begin is the Vatican, with its Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Works by Bernini, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, and Raphael are just a few of those on display, any one of which is worth hours of contemplation. Then the ancient ruins—Colosseum, Forum, Circus Maximus. And of course the Trevi Fountain for the obligatory coins promising your return to the Eternal City.
SUN APR 26
8:00 AM TO 11:00 PM Ponza

day 2 Ponza, Italy


Ponza, Italy
Welcome to the island where real Romans go to vacation.  Cars are scarce here and with only one main street and a casual, laid-back atmosphere that will have you relaxing in no time. There is little shopping available here and simplicity of this island adds to its charm.  Check out the botanical garden or the blue grottoes. Take the bus around the entire island, find a beach to hang out at or sit with the locals and watch the fishing boats come and go.
MON APR 27
8:00 AM TO 5:00 PM Sorrento

day 3 Sorrento, Italy


Sorrento, Italy
UNESCO World Heritage Sites abound in Sorrento.   Optional tours will take you to the archaeological areas of Pompeii 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. 
TUE APR 28
9:00 AM TO 6:00 PM Giardini Naxos

day 4 Giardini Naxos, Italy


Giardini Naxos, Italy
Today you’ll discover one of Sicily’s jewels, the charming village of Giardini Naxos, nestled in one of the world’s most beautiful bays. An optional excursion to the popular hillside town of Taormina will be a highlight of your voyage — from the stunning setting of the iconic Greek Theater to the sparkling beaches along the Ionian Sea. Take a more adventurous tack and explore the UNESCO site of Mount Etna, Europe’s most active volcano.
WED APR 29
8:00 AM TO 11:00 PM Valletta

day 5 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.” 
FRI MAY 1

day 7 Fiskardo, Kephalonia, Greece


Fiskardo, Kephalonia, Greece
The picturesque harbor of Fiskardo retains the flavor of a by-gone time with its Venetian-styled houses painted in pleasing pastel colors, a harbor full of small boats and various-sized yachts all moored just a few feet from the restaurants and cafes circling the harbor. The seafood is particularly fresh here where they take great pride in their preparation of delicious Greek cuisine.
SAT MAY 2
7:00 AM TO 1:00 PM Delphi

day 8 Delphi, Itea, Greece


Delphi, Itea, Greece
Before there were fortune cookies there was the oracle of Delphi, dating back to 1400 B.C. The oracle gave cryptic guidance to the leaders of the day and was so highly respected that Delphi, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, became known as the center of the world. An optional tour lets you go exploring, from the Temple of Apollo to the Delphi Archaeological Museum, which contains some of the finest works of art in Greece. 
SAT MAY 2
5:00 PM TO 8:00 PM Corinth Canal

day 8 Transit Corinth Canal, Greece


Transit Corinth Canal, Greece
You’ll want to be on deck today as we transit the narrow Corinth Canal with other private yachts and Greek mail steamers. It’s a shortcut reserved for petite ships like ours, and as we cruise between the narrow limestone walls we are the envy of all the ancient Romans who once portaged their ships along this very route before there was a canal.
 
Canal transit time and duration is subject to change based on traffic and canal authorities.
SUN MAY 3
8:00 AM TO 10:00 PM Milos

day 9 Milos, Greece


Milos, Greece
Milos, similar to Santorini, is a lovely destination for those who want to see Greece without the bustle of the more popular Greek Islands. Milos will give you beautiful beaches, impressive views, delicious food, the infamous white-washed buildings and friendly, kind people. This is the place to enjoy the beach – sparkling white sand contrasted with cobalt-blue waters, peaceful, relaxing and devoid of crowds.

Toast the day with a crisp, cold glass of local Assyrtiko wine.

day 12 Nafplio, Greece

day 14 Ermoupoli, Syros, Greece


Ermoupoli, Syros, Greece
Ermoupoli, the capital of Syros, opens the door to a little-known Greek island packed with rainbow-colored houses clinging to the hillsides. Not much has changed here since medieval times and the narrow cobblestone streets full of stairways and arches create a delightful maze. Sites to see include the Aghios Georgios Cathedral at the top of the hill, the Capuchin and Jesuit monasteries, and the picturesque main square known as the Piatsa.
SAT MAY 9
