About

Recommended for:
Ocean cruise

Fly to Venice and embark on Oceania’s Riveria to drift on to Dubrovnik. The Venetian theme is a link – many of the monuments here are legacies to its influence – as they are in the next port of call, Kotor, all pink-paved paths amidst atmospheric architecture. You’ll then move over the Mediterranean, calling in to Valletta’s prehistoric temples, and Sicily, where there’s time to trek up Mount Etna and explore Taormina’s Greek amphitheatre. Afterwards, Amalfi awaits, then Rome and Florence, with all their Renaissance treasures. By way of contrast, the chic delights of Monte Carlo are next before some French flavour in Toulon and a spot of Spanish splendour in Barcelona before your flight home.
