Italian Lakes and the Shores of Dalmatia and Amalfi
Day 1 UK - Rome - Civitavecchia
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Rome. On arrival, we embark our ship in preparation for an early evening sailing.
Day 2 Sorrento
Steep paths tempt the curious into Sorrento’s characterful lanes, lined with pottery shops and gelaterias, and beyond into beautiful mountainous scenery. You can also take a short boat ride to Capri - the views are jaw-droppingly gorgeous from the very top of the island. Alternatively Naples, the city of pizza, is an hour away. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 3 Amalfi
Docked before one of the world's most stunning coastlines, take a nature hike or a thrilling cliffside drive. Discover Amalfi’s unique shops and galleries and sample fresh mozzarella. Or walk along the fascinating streets of nearby Pompeii, still lined with ancient villas, shops and temples. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 4 Syracuse, Sicily
Discover the history of Syracuse as you follow ancient footsteps to Greek and Roman ruins, and along the cobbled streets of medieval Old Town. Classic sights like the Ortygia, Neapolis and the Basilica of Santa Lucia are worth visiting.
Day 5 At sea
Day 6 Kotor, Montenegro
Kotor’s UNESCO-protected stone skyline towers above you - sights like the imposing Mount Saint John are surrounded by medieval city walls. You might want to start your day in the beautiful village of Perast, with a boat ride to an island church, before sightseeing in the Old Town of Kotor. Or discover Montenegro’s rugged natural beauty and ancient royal capital on an excursion into the Lovcen Mountain Range.
Day 7 Dubrovnik, Croatia
Dubrovnik is adorned with charming squares and centuries-old red-roofed buildings. Walk along the protective walls for a spectacular view of the city, or take an excursion into the villages to share stories with a local family over dinner and wine. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 8 Šibenik
Today you could visit the pride of Šibenik - the UNESCO-listed Cathedral Sveti Jakov. Explore the traditional Primošten region or the charming medieval town of Trogir, a spectacle of stoic stone architecture. If you love the great outdoors, discover the waterfalls and lakes of Krka National Park.
Day 9 Koper, Slovenia
The old city of Koper holds the Praetorian Palace and the beautiful square of Titov Trg. Choose to trek through the Skocjan Caves; sail on Lake Bled; tour Ljubljana; or cross the border into the Italian coffee capital of Trieste. If wine is more appealing, enjoy an excursion to a Slovenian winery. This evening, we head to Tito Square for a spectacular a capella performance.
Day 10 Venice, Italy (overnight)
Tour the bridge-linked cobblestone streets of Venice, or explore the canals by water taxi or gondola. You’ll find plenty of opportunities to shop, sample Veneto wines and ice cream, or people watch in piazzas. If you want something different, journey to the second-oldest city in Italy: Padua.
Day 11 Venice - Baveno, Lake Maggiore
We disembark and make our way to the Roman town of Baveno, on the banks of Lake Maggiore. We stay for three nights in rooms with views over the lake.
Day 12 Borromean Islands
We board a boat to the beautiful Borromean Islands, made famous by Dumas in ‘The Count of Montecristo’, and in oils by Turner. We dock at Isola Bella to explore the baroque palace. Some rooms are adorned with thousands of pebbles and shells, while others are decorated with silk tapestries and marble. We have lunch on Isola Pescatori (the Isle of Fishermen). It still holds some of its 11th-century fishing-village charm, but its best known for the white peacocks that strut around the botanical gardens.
Day 13 Baveno
Today is plan free. Take a stroll along the shore and dream of life in opulent villas that have welcomed eminent guests including Sir Winston Churchill and Queen Victoria. Or head to the neighbouring elegant spa town of Stresa. You can take a cable car from here to the top of Mount Mottarone for panoramic views across the Po Valley.
Day 14 Baveno - Milan - UK
After a morning at leisure, we transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. On arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
