Day 1: Dubrovnik, Croatia | Embark

Your luxurious cruise starts in the medieval city of Dubrovnik, where you’ll embark your superyacht. 

Please book your flight to arrive into Dubrovnik prior to 04:00 PM.

Day 2: Monopoli, Italy

Tracing its origins back to 545 AD, Monopoli is a melting pot of Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish influence. Its charming harbor is surrounded by medieval stone walls, while the Church of the Purgatory features a Baroque chapel of mummified citizens that passed on.

Day 3: Otranto, Italy

Regarded as ‘the far east of Italy’, Otranto gazes out on to the Adriatic Sea and was a key port for trade and conquest during Roman times. Today, you’ll find a picturesque town of fortifications, mouthwatering seafood restaurants and a pleasant beach.   

Day 4: Crotone, Italy

At the very tip of Southern Italy is the Calabrian city of Crotone. Legend has it that it owes its name to Greek half-god Hercules, and there are Aegean influences at every turn, including the remnants of Apollo’s temple.

Day 5: Giardini Naxos, Italy

Giardini Naxos is a gorgeous beach resort, with a resplendent horseshoe bay and seafront lined with bars and restaurants.   

Day 6: Amalfi, Italy

Sitting in the foothills of Mount Cerreto, the ambient setting of Amalfi is a pleasant collection of piazzas and waterfront restaurants. Despite its diminutive size, this town was once a maritime powerhouse. 

Day 7: Sorrento, Italy

A quaint resort credited with inspiring the works of Charles Dickens and Leo Tolstoy, Sorrento provides a romantic introduction to the Amalfi Coast. The historic town has spectacular views over the Bay of Naples, and its maze of cobbled streets is punctuated with cosy cafes. 

Day 8: Civitavecchia, Italy | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Upon your arrival in Civitavecchia, you’ll disembark your spectacular superyacht.

Please book your flight to depart out of Rome after 12:00 PM.
