This is a superb new coastal cruise to explore the south of Italy and Sicily, the Aeolian Islands and fascinating archaeological sites. Discover the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, which were destroyed by the Vesuvius eruption of 79 A.D. and the popular resort of Taormina on Sicily’s East coast which has a stunning Ancient Greek theatre and sweeping views over the Gulf of Naxos and Mount Etna. The cruise offers a unique perspective on the Amalfi Coast: bays, coves and picturesque small towns clinging to the hillside can all be observed and visited from the ship; this line of coastline is one of the most beautiful routes on the Italian coast.
A 7 night cruise leads in at £1155 per person including flights and transfers. There is a special offer for departures between the 6th November and 19th December 2015. Cruises are onboard the 4* MS Belle de l’Adriatique.
