Athens, Greece to Rome
Discover a different side of the Mediterranean this winter, one where you’ll find plenty of elbow room at popular attractions and get to rub elbows with the locals during their most congenial time of year. This itinerary offers a perfect combination of small towns and large, major attractions and new discoveries, all when locals are most relaxed. They have time to chat and share their lives with you, whether teaching you to cook authentic Croatian dishes or sharing a favorite vintage at a Sicilian winery. You’ll also discover gems like maiden port  Crotone  – a small town that gives you access to hidden treasures like a unique Vlatch culture and one of the most beautiful medieval villages in Italy .  From Crotone, discover Castello Aragonese located in nearby Le Castella or Santa Severina, one of the most beautiful ancient villages in Italy . Transit the narrow Corinth Canal, a small ship exclusive, to Itea and visit the UNESCO site of Delphi.  Take your time and explore the Acropolis, Pompeii, the Sistine Chapel and Corfu’s Old Town without the press of crowds. Spend the night in Catania with a view of Mt. Etna, perhaps with a snow-capped peak.

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 1: Athens, Greece
With 3,000 years of history, you can’t turn around in Athens without encountering the past. The Acropolis, a UNESCO site, the Plaka, and the Acropolis Museum are must-sees. But leave time if you can to climb Pnyx Hill for photos of the Parthenon at sunset, to buy your own set of Greek komboloi (worry beads), and to explore the metro stations that serve as mini-museums for the relics that are constantly being unearthed. 
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 2: Corinth Canal
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.

Day 2: Delphi
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. 
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Corfu
One of the most beautiful and popular islands, located on the Ionian Sea, Corfu has wonderful beaches and small villages throughout the island. Take in the Venetian influence at the two fortresses located in Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 5: Crotone, Italy
Crotone is a vibrant city located in the Calabria region of southern Italy, nestled along the Ionian Sea. Steeped in history, Crotone has ancient origins dating back to Magna Graecia.  This coastal city is renowned for its captivating blend of archaeological treasures and natural beauty. Visitors can explore historical sites such as the Temple of Hera Lacinia, an ancient Greek structure dedicated to the goddess Hera, and the Castle of Charles V, a medieval fortress offering panoramic views of the city and the sea.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Catania
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.

Day 8: Naples
Less than two hours from Rome, the port city of Naples was founded by the Greeks, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is unlike any other city in Italy.  It is a busy, bustling place where mini-operettas take place on street corners, Vespas scoot across the pedestrian piazzas, the small narrow streets are hanging thick with laundry and graffiti is everywhere. But Naples is full of archaeological treasures that are among the most impressive in the world, including breathtaking frescoes and sculptures. Its beautiful palaces, castles and churches make Rome look provincial. And the food in Naples is among the best you’ll find in Italy, serving decadent pizza, pasta, coffee, and seafood dishes you’ll never forget.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 9: Rome
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.
Popular Highlights
Capo Colonna
