Upon your arrival in Civitavecchia, you’ll board your spectacular super yacht, Emerald Azzurra, to commence your yacht cruise.
A quaint resort credited with inspiring the works of Charles Dickens and Leo Tolstoy, Sorrento provides a romantic introduction to the Amalfi Coast. The historic town has spectacular views over the Bay of Naples, and its maze of cobbled streets is punctuated with cosy cafés.
Your discovery of Sicily begins in the capital city of Palermo, a melting pot of elegant piazzas and even better pizza.
The Normans referred to it as the “Kingdom of the sun”, it has been the prize of Roman, Byzantine and Greek settlers, all of which culminates in the wonderfully diverse nature of Palermo. From its grand Piazza Vigilena, with its revered Baroque structures, the colourful masterpiece of Capella Palatina to the bustling markets of Vucciria, it’s no wonder it has previously been named Italian Capital of Culture.
Blessed with one of the most enchanting coastlines in Italy, Trapani is a serene side of Sicily. A heady mix of alluring landscapes, inviting beaches and historic intrigue, including the 18th-century Chiesa Anime Sante del Purgatorio, a church depicting the story of Christ’s Passion.
A popular beach resort on Sicily’s southern coast Porto Empedocle is instantly recognisable by its striking Quadrangular Tower of Carlo V.
Once described as “a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen”, the Maltese capital of Valletta in rich in landmarks and beautiful Baroque architecture. Its creation was a labour of love for the Knights of St John, but today it has blossomed as a UNESCO World Heritage and European Art City thanks to its wealth of museums, galleries and charming Barrakka Gardens.
Catania is another of Sicily’s prized gems, a magnetic collection of winding streets and elegant architecture. At its centre is the awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage-listed monastery of San Benedetto, a symbol of Catania.
Sat in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, the unforgettable city of Naples possesses a passion to match its fiery neighbour.
The third-largest city in Italy, Naples does things very much in its own way. It is a sea of extraordinary art and culture, unparalleled cuisine and an unmatched history, all sat against the backdrop of one of Europe’s most iconic volcanoes.
Today you’ll disembark Emerald Azzurra and be transferred to the airport for your return flight home.
