About

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Piraeus

It's no wonder that all roads lead to the fascinating metropolis of Athens. Lift your eyes 200 feet above the city to the Parthenon, its honey-color marble columns rising from a massive limestone base, and you behold architectural perfection that has not been surpassed in 2,500 years. But, today, this shrine of classical form dominates a 21st-century boomtown.  Just beyond the city's southern fringes is Piraeus, a bustling port city of waterside fish tavernas and Saronic Gulf views.

Day 2
Santorini

Of all the Cyclades Islands, Santorini is often considered the most dramatic with its dark landscape and iconic whitewashed buildings. The rich soil is ideal for grapes and local vines produce a cherished crop known for its special volcanic taste. Picturesque "Thíra," or Fira Town, laid out along the edge of a cliff at the rim of the now extinct caldera, exudes an easy charm.

Day 3
At Sea

Day 4
Catania

Nestled snuggly at the foot of Mount Etna and this sea, this ancient port is a rich tapestry of landscapes and traditions. Indeed, here on the largest island in the Mediterranean – a cultural crossroads for centuries – you’ll find influences from Greek and Phoenician to French and Spanish, all reflected in rich cuisine and Baroque architecture. Be sure to explore its historic UNESCO-listed center, filled with towering palazzi and sweeping plazas.

Day 5
Sorrento

Dramatic bluffs and craggy cliffs draped with flowing pink blossoms are the welcoming vision to this romantic port renowned for its serene way of life.

Day 6
Civitavecchia

Italy's vibrant capital lives in the present, but no other city on earth evokes its past so powerfully. For over 2,500 years, emperors, popes, artists, and common citizens have left their mark here. Archaeological remains from ancient Rome, art-stuffed churches, and the treasures of Vatican City vie for your attention, but Rome is also a wonderful place to practice the Italian-perfected il dolce far niente, the sweet art of idleness. Your most memorable experiences may include sitting at a caffè in the Campo de' Fiori or strolling in a beguiling piazza.
