La vita è bella and we’re showing you the very best of it on this immersive Italian journey, featuring five late nights in some of the country’s most iconic cities and towns. Take off from Genoa before setting sail to Santa Margherita, where you’ll lose yourself in the scenic city and its stunning 16th century fortress. Next, an overnight in Livorno awaits, putting you at the gateway of Florence’s classics—the David, the Duomo, and the Uffizi Gallery—with tons of time to take them in. Explore the Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, marveling at its plazas designs and amateur singers who highlight the grand acoustics of the Baptistry.
Then, we set sail to the Eternal City of Rome, where you’ll spend the day (and a late night) reveling in quintessential sites and indulging in local delicacies. Experience the intensely stunning views from the top in Sorrento, where you can hike, hop on a mini-bus, or take the lift up during a late stay in port. The Sicilian resort town of Giardini Naxos will wow you, with a coast that seems to stretch for miles and many opportunities to give oneself to a little afternoon riposo on the beach.
During your next late night in Monopoli, bask in the beauty of the harbor and be mesmerized by the medieval castles that sit above the Adriatic Ocean. The age-old town of Kotor (which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in itself, and our next late stay) will charm you, surrounded by stone and filled with churches, shops, bars and restaurants, and hidden piazzas. After a day at sea, you’ll complete your Italian immersion in Venice, the perfect place to reflect on your Italian adventure (perhaps over a glass or two of Venetian wine).
