Italy Cruise Highlights

Fantastic Cuisine

One of the highlights of cruising to Italy is sampling all of the culinary delights of the region. Sip on glasses of Chianti, Barolo, and Pinot Grigio. Try Tuscan specialties like bistecca alla Fiorentina and grab a slice of authentic Neapolitan pizza in Naples. Buy a box of biscotti in Sicily and order a plate of bucatini or gnocchi in Rome. Finish off your meal with a creamy gelato and a reinvigorating shot of espresso.

Famous Landmarks

You’ll find magnificent landmarks everywhere during your cruise to Italy. In Rome, explore the Colosseum, where gladiators once battled, and throw a coin into the baroque Trevi Fountain to ensure your return to the city. In Florence, admire the perfection of Michelangelo’s David. Take a photo at the astonishing Leaning Tower of Pisa and admire the dappled sunlight and azure water inside Capri’s famed Blue Grotto. While in Venice, be dazzled by the exquisite mosaics inside St. Mark’s Basilica.

The Amalfi Coast

Soak in the beauty of the Amalfi Coast, where mountains plunge straight into the sparkling Mediterranean and pastel-colored townhouses and fragrant citrus groves cling to the hillsides. Visit the picturesque cliffside towns of Positano, Ravello, and Sorrento and savor a lunch of fresh seafood and crisp white wine in a beachfront restaurant. Sail to the fabled island of Capri, famed for its dramatic scenery and lavish villas, and sip limoncello while people watching in the chic Piazzetta.

Featured Italy Cruise Ports

Ravenna (Venice)

The beautiful city of Ravenna reflects its one-time status as capital of the western Roman empire. Ancient churches and baptistries throughout the center, all protected by UNESCO, are adorned with exquisite early Christian mosaics. From Ravenna, visit the enchanting city of Venice, famed for its canals, grand waterfront palaces, ancient bridges, and art, from the masterpieces inside the Doge’s Palace to the contemporary Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

History lovers and cultural connoisseurs will experience a feast for the senses in Rome, Italy’s elegant capital. Step back in time inside the Colosseum, an ancient amphitheater that dates back to the first century. Marvel at the heavenly frescoes of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel inside the Vatican, and the vastness of St. Peter’s Basilica. Sip your morning cappuccino on gorgeous Piazza Navona against a soundtrack of splashing fountains and browse the designer shops on Via del Corso.


The seaside village of Portofino is one of Italy’s most glamorous destinations. Stroll around its winding streets lined with colorful buildings and admire the megayachts bobbing in the pretty harbor. Wander up the hill through the pinewoods beside the town to Castello Brown, a historic fort with dazzling views, or step inside enticing boutiques around the Piazzetta. This alluring square is the perfect spot for homemade gelato or a refreshing Aperol spritz cocktail in the sunshine.
