Come early and enjoy Rome, where we’ll have a host hotel and optional tours. In this enchanting city, the past and present intersect in perfect harmony. Casually intermingled among ancient ruins and majestic cathedrals are the trappings of a modern metropolis, but of course, what you seek first is the heart of Rome is its breathtaking history. A good place to begin is the Vatican, with its Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Then the ancient ruins – Colosseum, Forum, Circus Maximum. And of course the Trevi Fountain for the obligatory coins promising your return to the Eternal City.
This picturesque town located between Rome and Naples takes its name from the legend of the nanny of Aeneas. In this enchanting city, the past and present intersect in perfect harmony.
Arrival: 12:00pm / Departure: 7:00pm
Sorrento, whose city walls rise straight out of the sea, is located on the lovely Amalfi Coast and overlooks the Bay of Naples. Its peaceful alleyways, villas, hotels, and gentle way of life have been charming visitors and the greatest authors since the 19th century, from Byron and Tolstoy to Dickens and Goethe.
As you enjoy a walk in this romantic atmosphere, you will discover the medieval cloister of Saint-Francis Church and a magnificent panorama over the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Sorrento is surrounded by groves of oranges and lemons, flavors that can be enjoyed in particular in the form of a sweet liqueur, limoncello.
Optional excursions include taking a trip back in history to Pompeii, where the ashen remains of ancient Romans lie frozen in time, or exploring the Blue Grotto of Capri.
Arrival: 9:00am / Departure: 11:59pm
Located on the Cilento Coast along the Tyrrhenian Sea, Agropoli is an Italian town located in the province of Salerno in Campania. You will be seduced by the beauty of its coastline, its pristine nature, and its fascinating history dating back to Antiquity. The Apennines (from the Celtic word “pen” meaning rocky summit) form the backbone of the Italian Peninsula and serve as a majestic background to a landscape composed of small bays and coves. Listed as World Heritage by UNESCO, the magnificent beaches of Trentova Baycontribute to making this small town a very popular seaside resort.
Arrival: 8:00am / Departure: 2:00pm
Once you visit this beautiful village you’ll know this was a place obviously favored by the Gods. It’s the largest of the Aeolian islands, and well-known for its mythological connections and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Its lava stone quarries and obsidian flow of Rocce Rosse are indications of its volcanic nature. The town, the largest urban area in the whole archipelago, proudly houses its citadel and its castle, both rooted in Antiquity. If you head further into the center, you’ll be surprised to come across a Norman cathedral, complete with a magnificent baroque façade.
Arrival: 8:00am / Departure: 7:00pm
Sail to Stromboli
Like Ulysses during his Odyssey, you will have the opportunity to admire the Stromboli, the capricious volcano that looms over the Aeolian Islands. Its activity, uninterrupted for thousands of years, has earned it the nickname the “Lighthouse of the Mediterranean.” Get ready for an extraordinary “Volcano Party”, celebrating 20 years of Source journeys.
Arrival: 10:30pm / Departure: 11:30pm
The little town of Campania gives its name to the region containing the magnificent, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Amalfi Coast. And for good reason. Located at the foot of Mount Cerreto, against a rock face of a gorge that opens onto the sea, Amalfi’s absolutely splendid natural scenery alone is enough to feast your eyes on before making for the medieval streets to explore some of its histories. The mix of cultural influences from the Mediterranean Rim is omnipresent here.
Arrival: 3:00pm / Departure: 11:00pm
Off the coast of Naples, the island of Ponza has always lived outside of time… Also known as the island of Circe, where the famous magician who captivated Ulysses was born, this magnificent rock, the result of a volcanic eruption, rises from the Tyrrhenian Sea. Faced with the wild beauty of this site, you will understand why Ulysses was in no hurry to head off for Ithaca. Its rugged coastline of rocks and white or blue-grey cliffs, sculpted by the wind and the waves, is full of sea caves that the Romans used to use for bathing. The village of Ponza also offers a pretty sight, with its colorful cubic houses forming a semi-circle around the tiny port.
Arrival: 10:00am / Departure: 3:00pm
Disembark for your return flight home.
