Azamara Journey
Sailing: August 11, 2020

Welcome to Bel Paese, the Beautiful Country

Ancient art, the most UNESCO World Heritage sites, and, according to locals, the best food on Earth—Italy has it all! From the moment you arrive for this nine-night adventure, Italy casts an enchanting spell that inspires and delights.

Your journey begins in Venice, a city awash in charm. Lose yourself amongst the winding cobblestone streets, or spend the day floating down the grand canal on a gondola. Then, we’re off to Bologna, a city steeped in gastronomy and the home of bolognese sauce. From here, we’ll stop in the hidden gem of Ancona, followed by the medieval city of Kotor, Montenegro, where the beguiling Old Town is waiting to be explored.

After a day of relaxation aboard your boutique hotel at sea, we arrive in Siracusa—home of ancient ruins and world-famous cannolis—before making our way to Taormina for a taste of la dolce vita.

Next stop, Amalfi, where you can explore bustling narrow streets, relax in the sun-filled Piazza del Duomo, or take a thrilling drive along the city’s world-famous coastal roads.

The voyage then takes you to the resort town of Sorrento, the perfect spot to delight in fresh seafood and Gnocchi alla Sorrentina, before concluding in Rome—where even more adventures await around every corner.

    Dubbed “The Mosaic City”, Ravenna is best known for its churches, which date back 1,500 years and are decorated with stunning, multicolored Byzantine mosaics. In Ravenna, you can visit Dante's tomb, or tour the grounds of the Azienda Agricola Vignato Virgilio winery then reward yourself for a day of sightseeing with a glass of crisp gambellara or a rich cabernet.

    A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kotor is filled with churches, shops, bars, restaurants, and hidden piazzas.

The entire city is surrounded by stone, both in the form of imposing Mount Saint John and by towering ancient walls, creating a cozy feeling of protection when you walk the cobblestone streets.

    Classic sights like the Ortygia, Neapolis, and the Basilica of Santa Lucia are always worth a visit, but if you’re looking for something a little more offbeat, take in a puppet theatre show—a traditional form of Sicilian entertainment. The stunning Fonte Aretusa was once the source of the city’s drinking water, and now the pond and surrounding area is a scenic spot, perfect for a picnic lunch.

    For rest and relaxation, Giardini Naxos is just the ticket, with a coast that seems to stretch on for miles. To the left looms Mount Etna, Italy’s largest active volcano. Hikes to the top are only advised for experienced hikers (dress warmly!), but the Silvestri Craters are fun to explore at any skill level. Or head to the hilltop town of Taormina, one of the most beautiful places in all of Sicily.

Take a relaxing chair lift ride to the very top of the island, as the views are jaw-droppingly gorgeous.
