This in-depth exploration of some of Italy's most breath-taking regions presents you with engrossing culture, spectacular scenery and remarkable history. You will enjoy authentic experiences galore on the impossibly beautiful Amalfi Coast, Tuscany and the sumptuous Italian Riviera as Borealis sails between a collection of enchanting towns and cities.
Your exploration of the Amalfi Coast will be something to remember forever. Two enchanting towns, set to a backdrop of the region's spectacular coastal scenery, await you; dazzling Amalfi town, with its quintessential scenes of whitewash villas sprinkled over a mountainside, vivacious piazzas, and Sorrento, boasting potscard-perfect views of legendary Mount Vesuvius and Naples. In Tuscany, you can tour from Livorno to Pisa to marvel at the iconic Leaning Tower and 11th century Duomo, or Florence, to lose yourself in the romance of the city's towers, spired and rolling Tuscan Hills. Meanwhile, on the Italian Riviera, you are sure to be charmed by the upmarket, pocket-sized fishing village of Portofino and Genoa, where grand palaces and piazzas highlight this city's historic importance.
Elsewhere, Borealis' inspirational Italian adventure takes you to the glorious shores of Sicily, for a rare opportunity to explore lesser-known Milazzo, and to the Sardinian 'happy city' of Olbia, to wander its handsome historic centre and step back in time amongst an abundance of centuries-old structures and archaeological sites. A call at Civitavecchia, gateway to mighty Rome, offers you a chance to discover the seemingly endless highlights of Italy's incredible capital city; from the magnificent Colosseum and the Roman Forum, to the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica. There's also a visit to Salerno, where medieval churches, castles and terraced gardens, offer an authentic insight into the rich Roman heritage of Italy's stunning south.
