One of Europe’s most evocative and charismatic countries, Italy never ceases to amaze us with its ancient ruins, Renaissance riches and mouthwatering meals. It’s a country that’s irresistible because of its legendary sites, but also because of that enviable Italian sensibility for savoring the finer things in life and the sweeping dedication to enjoying the moment and living well – la bella vita.
Another Side of Italy
The iconic sites of Rome, Venice and Florence are truly only the beginning. You’ve seen Botticelli’s masterpieces in Florence and the Coliseum in Rome, but have you cooked a meal side-by-side with an Italian family in their farmhouse or discovered the Florentine art of paper marbling? Experience Italy’s celebrated cities in new ways and explore hidden secrets like Gaeta and Olbia. Go for the drive of a lifetime down the Amalfi Coast or explore the gourmet shops and markets of Rapallo while in Portofino. Authentic Italy awaits.
Of course, every great jaunt to Italy doubles as an invitation to delve into the local culinary scene, whether it’s sampling the delicious local street food – arancini or farinata, anyone? – or sipping a rare vintage at a centuries-old vineyard in Tuscany. On board, our gourmet restaurants complete the circle. Toscana isn’t simply an Italian restaurant – it’s an Italian experience, complete with an olive oil tasting menu, fresh bread and pasta made from scratch, delectable DOC cheeses and an exquisitely curated wine menu. You’re invited to come along on an insider’s journey with us to Italy this fall or next summer. Uncover the very best of this country’s cuisine, art and culture on our expertly curated Mediterranean voyages.
