Begin your Italy cruise-and-stay holiday in Sorrento, with the chance to experience Pompeii. After exploring Amalfi and the beautiful Sicilian town of Syracuse, you'll reach Puglia, where pink-washed baroque towns, endless orchards and olive groves provide a quintessential Italian experience. An overnight stop in romantic Venice completes this fantastic cruise of Italy. We'll then enjoy a short break on Lake Maggiore, where your balcony room allows you to admire views of the mighty Alps melting into the inky waters of the lake.
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Rome. On arrival, we transfer to Civitavecchia and embark our ship with time to settle in to our luxurious surroundings on board, before we begin our cruise.
Looking out from Sorrento is the isle of Capri. The island is divided into two main parts, Capri and Anacapri. Capri is full of Italian luxury, with designer stores and five-star hotels lining the streets, while Anacapri is slightly more down-to-earth. Make sure you take a relaxing chair lift ride to the very top of the island, as the views are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Ship to shore tender service.
Live it up in the land of limoncello. Perched on one of the world's most stunning coastlines, Amalfi delivers a true Italian experience. Discover unique shops and galleries, take a thrilling cliffside drive, or stay close to the shore and live la dolce vita. Ship to shore tender service.
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.
Spend the day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea. Indulge in a treatment at Sanctum Spa, stay shipshape with a class at the fitness centre, or lounge the day away on the sunny pool deck. In the evening, savour inspired Italian cuisine at Aqualina, or relish in a classic steakhouse experience at Prime C Plus, you’ll find plenty of exciting evening entertainment, from thrilling shows at Cabaret Lounge to intimate performances in the Living Room.
Once used by Holy Roman Emperors as a base for their Crusades to the Holy Lands, Brindisi is a hidden gem in Italy's Puglia region. With sprawling orchards and olive groves, and pink-washed baroque towns nearby, it's the quintessential Italian experience. One must-see for history buffs is the temple of St Giovanna - rumoured to be the home of the Knights Templar.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kotor is filled with churches, shops, bars, restaurants, and hidden piazzas (the latter are perfect for enjoying Montenegrin wines like the red Vranac or dry white Krstac). The entire city is surrounded by stone, both in the form of imposing Mount Saint John and by towering ancient walls, creating a cosy feeling of protection when you walk the cobblestone streets.
A beacon on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, Ancona is a city steeped in over 2,400 years of history. Walk beneath Ancona’s towering marble Arco di Traiano, tour the Ancona Cathedral - built high above the Old Town atop an ancient Roman temple - and explore millennia of human history at Marche National Archaeological Museum.
Nestled up against Slovenia and at the intersection of Latin, Slavic and Germanic cultures, Trieste’s historic grandeur still captivates, from the Roman amphitheatre to the city core’s array of noble buildings.
Experience Venice, one of the most captivating - and romantic - cities in the world. Tour the city’s cobblestone streets and overarching bridges, or take to the water and explore the canals on a water taxi or gondola. As you make your way through the city, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to shop, sample delicious Veneto wines, or people watch in Piazza San Marco.
We disembark and meet with a local guide for the transfer to Baveno and our hotel, where you can enjoy beautiful views of Lake Maggiore from your room. The afternoon is at leisure for you to enjoy lovely Baveno.
We set off to see the baroque architecture and magnificent gardens of the Borromean Islands. On our private boat tour, we’ll glide across the serene waters of Lake Maggiore - Italy's second-largest lake - to explore Isola Bella and Isola dei Pescatori.
Enjoy a day at leisure to take in all the town has to offer. Baveno has a quiet, unassuming beauty and the kind of charm unique to the Italian Lakes. Set back from the waterfront in the heart of the town is a little clutch of narrow, cobbled streets that emerge out onto a 16th-century square with a beautiful Romanesque church.
We transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. On arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
