  2. Day 2 - Šibenik, Croatia

    Known for its UNESCO World Heritage-listed St. James’ Cathedral and its famous black and orange hat, Šibenik is a city of tradition.

  3. Day 3 - Dubrovnik, Croatia

    Unmistakable terracotta buildings welcome you to Dubrovnik. Once described as ‘paradise on earth’, the city’s Old Town has centuries of history ingrained into its walls. It’s home to an array of churches, museums, and galleries, including the 7th century Cathedral of the Assumption.

  4. Day 4 - Brindisi, Italy

    Brindisi, a thriving port city that was often referred as the ‘Gateway to the East’ during Roman times, is your stop for the day.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  5. Day 5 - Crotone, Italy

    At the very tip of Southern Italy is the Calabrian city of Crotone. According to legend, it owes its name to Greek half-god Hercules, and there are Aegean influences at every turn, including the remnants of Apollo’s temple.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  6. Day 6 - Messina, Italy

    This underrated Sicilian city, with its wide boulevards and lower-rise, turn-of-the-century buildings, exudes a sense of space and calm not found in other main cities on the island. Messina is the home of the Stele della Madonna della Lettera, or gilded Madonna statue blessing its port and city. It is certainly a fantastic and rugged place to spend time and explore.

    Naples is a city unlike any other. This urban sprawl on the outskirts of Mount Vesuvius, with its UNESCO World Heritage-listed historic centre dating back to 470 BC, is a magnificent lively and bustling place to spend your day.
