Authentic | Mediterranean
This in-depth exploration of some of Italy’s most breathtaking regions presents
engrossing culture, spectacular scenery and remarkable history across a
collection of enchanting towns and cities. You’ll enjoy a host of authentic
experiences on the impossibly beautiful Amalfi Coast; in Tuscany, where you
can tour to Florence or historic Pisa; and on the sumptuous Italian Riviera.
Then there’s the world-famous sites of mighty Rome to discover too.
The attraction-packed Spanish city of Malaga and
the delightful island of Menorca are welcome and
rewarding stops en route to Sorrento, the starting
point for your Italian adventure. Situated on the
gorgeous Amalfi Coast and overlooking the crystalclear
Bay of Naples, Sorrento offers postcard-perfect
views of legendary Mount Vesuvius and Naples that
will whet your appetite for what’s to come next.
In Naples you could choose to uncover the
architectural wonders tucked away within the
city’s UNESCO-listed historic centre; or opt to
take a tour to fascinating ash-dusted remains of
Pompeii, the ancient city devastated by the
eruption of Vesuvius in 79CE.
Boudicca will return to the Amalfi Coast and drop
anchor at Amalfi. Dazzling mountainous landscapes
and quintessential villas will beckon you ashore to
explore this petite town, where a handful of Arab-
Romanesque buildings and vivacious piazzas await.
Perhaps you’ll take a tour to the picturesque town of
Positano, or delve into the history of paper making,
before enjoying a scenic cruise by the island of Capri.
Civitavecchia is your gateway to Rome. From the
magnificent Colosseum to St Peter’s Basilica in the
Vatican, the highlights of Italy’s capital are seemingly
endless and well worth making the journey to
discover. In Tuscany, a call at Livorno will afford you
opportunities to tour to Pisa to see the iconic Leaning
Tower and 11th century Duomo; or to the Renaissance
city of Florence for majestic domes, towers and
spires framed by rolling Tuscan hills.
Two magical days on the Italian Riviera begin with
a stop at pocket-sized Portofino. You’re sure to be
enthralled by this upmarket fishing village, it boasts
quaint townhouses and a charming marina backed
by forested hills. Nearby Paraggi Beach is the perfect
place to unwind. Genoa is your final Italian call. This
city oozes historic importance; the grand palaces
and piazzas display its rich heritage. There will be
ample time to explore at leisure; though you could
also choose to tour to fashionable Milan.
Concluding your authentic exploration are calls into
Cartagena, Lisbon and Vigo, three cities packed with
cultural and architectural highlights.
