One of my favorite journeys was a cruise to the Adriatic and Amalfi Coast. We departed from Rome and visited Sicily and Dubrovnik, Croatia. The Coliseum in Rome, completed in the year 80 AD, is one of several relics remaining from the Roman Empire. With literally thousands of years’ worth of history to explore in this port, you may want to keep a few days open before or after your voyage to take it all in. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and shouldn’t be toured in one, either.
You can enjoy fantastic views of Mt. Etna from the hilltop town of Taormina, Sicily and there is nothing like getting up close to explore the volcano’s giant craters.
Spend the day as you like in the wonderful, history-rich city of Dubrovnik and discover the many highlights of "the pearl of the Adriatic." Although you're free to choose where to go and what to do, no visit to Dubrovnik would be complete without a leisurely walk around the city walls. Built between the 13th and 16th centuries and still intact today, these powerful walls are the finest in the world and Dubrovnik's main claim to fame. The views over the town and sea are spectacular, so this walk is certain to be one of the most memorable experiences of your visit.
