Italy and the Greek Islands Cruise

Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri Island, Delphi, Athens, and a 3 day 3 night Greek Islands Cruise

12-14 days

Ancient cities, Italian coasts, and a 3 to 4  day Greek Islands cruise through the dazzling Aegean Sea.

Flying into Rome, get your city fix as you discover age-old sights like the Colosseum and the Vatican. Head down to the Italian coastal town of Sorrento, with a stop-off at Pompeii and a day trip out to Capri Island. Then it’s over to Greece, as you take in the history of Delphi and Athens before boarding your cruise across the emerald waters of the Aegean Sea. See those recognizable Greek postcard scenes come to life; swaying windmills, dramatic cliffs, and whitewashed houses as you island hop your way to some of the most iconic Greek Islands including Mykonos and Santorini.

From ancient history to sparkling seas, this tour can be customized with a day extra in Rome and also adding time on the cruise (3 or 4 day cruise). It would also be possible to add overnights at the end on one of the Greek islands.

This tour can be made with alterations such as extending your number of overnights in any location. You can chose between flying or ferry from Italy to Greece.
