About this trip

Starting in Bologna, we explore the less visited regions of Italy, along the Adriatic Sea to the heel of the boot, the Salento Peninsula.  Taking in Bologna, Ascoli Piceno, Ostuni and Lecce before heading west to Matera, a Basilicata’s jewel, a town built on carved caves.  We reach the rugged Amalfi Coast with a visit to Naples.

Malta is a history-rich small archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the smallest countries in Europe.  There is glorious variety in its small archipelago; prehistoric temples, fossil-studded cliffs, hidden coves, and a history of remarkable intensity.

Experience a Greek Islands cruise combining amazing destinations on a mega yacht with professional crew and exquisite cuisine. Each day discover a new port of call, a hidden cove with crystal blue waters, a glimpse of ancient history and rich cultural diversity.
