Cinque Terre & the islands of Sicily & Malta
Cruising the length of the Italian coast
This new cruise provides an opportunity to visit some of the less accessible or lesser-visited sites in the French and Italian Riviera. We discover sites at the very heart of the Mediterranean and enjoy beautiful sea, volcano, and mountain scenery as we travel from the elegant city of Nice and sail the length of Italy, all the way to Malta. We will encounter Greek colonies and Roman settlements, Norman invaders, crusading Knights, and the famous Republican turned Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte.
