Voyage Itinerary

Welcome to the Birthplace of Western Civilization

From the moment you arrive, Italy casts its spell on you. From its art and architecture to its world-class dining and effortless romance, you’ll quickly come to understand why Italy is known as The Beautiful Country during this nine-night adventure.

Your journey begins in Venice, a city that fills the imagination with possibility. Walk the city’s winding cobblestone streets, or better yet, float down the grand canal on a romantic gondola ride. Then it’s off to Ancona, followed by a trip across the Adriatic in your boutique hotel at sea to the medieval city of Kotor, Montenegro for a late night in spectacular Old Town.

After another day of shopping, shows, and spa treatments on board the Azamara Quest, we arrive in Siracusa, where you can tour ancient ruins and fill up on world-famous cannolis before we make our way to Giardini Naxos and the stunning hilltop town of Taormina.

As the sun rises the next morning, we’ll arrive in Amalfi for a day of exploring narrow streets bursting with galleries and shops, followed by a thrilling drive along the region’s iconic coastal roads. Before we leave for Sorrento—and the conclusion of your journey—be sure to stock up on Italian Limoncello!

Classic sights like the Ortygia, Neapolis, and the Basilica of Santa Lucia are always worth a visit, but if you’re looking for something a little more offbeat, take in a puppet theatre show—a traditional form of Sicilian entertainment.
