Day 1 Valletta, Malta | Embark

Valletta, The Fortress City, is Malta's capital city: a living, working city, the administrative and commercial heart of the island. Valletta is named after its founder, the respected Grand Master of the Order of St. John, Jean Parisot de la Valette. The magnificent fortress city grew on the arid rock of Mount Sceberras peninsula, which rises steeply from two deep harbors, Marsamxett and Grand Harbor. Ottoman forces numbering 40,000 laid siege to the island from May to September 1565, without success. The heavily outnumbered army of 700 knights and around 8000 Maltese regular troops took refuge in the fortified town on the Grand Harbor. Started in 1566, the city of Valletta was completed, with its impressive bastions, forts, and cathedral, in the astonishingly short time of 15 years. The city is busy by day, yet retains a timeless atmosphere. The grid of narrow streets boasts some of Europe's finest art works, churches and palaces. Walking around Valletta you'll come across an intriguing historical site around every corner: votive statues, niches, fountains and coats of arms high up on parapets. Narrow side streets are full of tiny quaint shops and cafes, while Valletta's main streets are lined with larger international branded shops for fashion, music, jewelry and much more. Explore this beautiful city before boarding your ship and embarking on your adventure.

Take an officer-led hike or bike ride to Taormina town, or continue up to Castelmola, which provides amazing views of the surrounding areas. Perhaps the “must do” adventure here would be to ascend Mt. Etna with your fellow travelers. If conditions allow, enjoy water sports both in the morning and in the afternoon. Multo Bene!

Dock in the center of town and enjoy incredible access for strolling into town or meeting the motor coach for the scheduled excursions. The city is still important for fishing and is the main gateway to the nearby Egadi Islands. This Carthaginian - and later Roman - city is an exciting gateway to Sicily's historic, gastronomic and natural attractions, offering access to beautiful medieval towns as well as Greek archaeological sites.

The water off Spiaggia Bianca (White Beach) is as clear and as turquoise as in the Bahamas and Caribbean. There are black sand beaches on the island as well. Attend a Pizza Demonstration as an optional excursion as well as the island overview. Water sports in the crystal waters is also a great activity option.

Besides some simply amazing shopping boutiques, the island has so much to offer, including the famous Grotta Azzurra, Villa Jovis, Giardini di Augusto, Certosa di San Giacomo, Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe and the uniquely shaped Faraglioni rocks. There are also some great hikes available on the island.

Amalfi sports some impressive medieval architecture including; its cathedral of Sant'Andrea (St. Andrew), the church tower, the convent of the Cappuccini, founded by the Amalfitan Cardinal Pietro Capuano. They richly represent the artistic movement prevailing in Southern Italy. From Amalfi, we have created two exciting land adventures for you.
