Day 1: Civitavecchia (Port of Rome), Italy | Embark

All roads lead to Rome. The stunningly beautiful city on the Tiber is around 70 kilometers (44 miles) from the port of Civitavecchia. The highlights of the "Eternal City" are not limited to the seven hills of antiquity. The historic center and the Vatican State in Rome are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the city of Vespas and "la dolce vita", painters, sculptors and architects have left behind innumerable works of art over three millennia. Ancient sites, Renaissance palaces, Baroque squares and fountains create a splendid backdrop for enjoying life in between the daily routine and eternity. Explore this fantastic city before transferring to Civitavecchia to board your ship and embark on your cruise.

Day 2: Bonifacio, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The chalk cliffs are visible even from a long way away and fall away steeply into the sea like a wall. Hidden behind them is a fjord-like inlet, which provides the beautiful entrance into the natural harbor of Bonifacio. The elegant modern lower town is set around the harbor with a promenade that runs the length of the deep bay and leads to the elegant marina. More than 187 stone steps, majestically named the "Staircase of the King of Aragon," lead you up to the medieval upper town, which sits lofty and impregnable high up on the top of a steep chalk cliff.

Day 3: Porto Cervo, Italy | Sardinia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This small seaside resort town on the island of Sardinia provides a perfectly laid-back locale for a stroll through the small town center, or to relax on the beach.

Day 5: Amalfi Coast | Sorrento, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Violet bougainvillea in front of pastel pink facades; houses clinging to the cliffs like swallows’ nests; a grand open staircase looking out onto the glistening turquoise sea – Sorrento, Positano, and Amalfi sometimes seem too good to be true. But the colorful, romantic fishing villages are real. In 1997, UNESCO declared the Amalfi Coast a World Heritage Site.

Day 6: Sorrento, Italy | Capri Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The picturesque little town of Sorrento is delightfully situated high above white cliffs and offers a fantastic view over the Gulf of Naples. Visitors have been succumbing to Sorrento's magic for 2,000 years, which is at its best when there's a picturesque sunset. Everyone has heard about the tragic end that came to the prosperous Roman trading center of Pompeii, situated at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. In 79 AD it was buried under ash and lava and remained hidden for centuries. Nowadays it is the greatest excavation site in Italy and gives you a glimpse into daily life in Roman times.

Even at the time of the Roman Empire, Capri was a particularly precious natural gem and became the summer residence of Emperor Tiberius. Artists and hedonists, aristocrats and the moneyed classes discovered the island for themselves in the 19th century. This stunningly beautiful rocky island in the Gulf of Naples is famous for its numerous grottos, the most well-known being the Blue Grotto. You can expect a combination of pleasure and spectacle when you experience the colorful lifestyle and goings-on in the Piazetta right in the center of Capri.

Day 7: At Sea

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
