Embark Royal Clipper in Civitavecchia.
Day 2 - Palmarola - Ponza (Italy)
Spend the morning in Palmarola, a craggy island in the Tyrrhenian Sa before approaching the island of Ponza with its beautiful coastline with rocky coves and cliffs which are rich in the precious mineral white betonite, sandy beaches and crystal clear water. It is also home to some excellent restaurants and has its own wine producing region. See the unique the character of the island which has one main road snaking up from the port to the north of the island, giving fantastic panoramic views.
Day 3 - Sorrento
Sorrento is perched above the sea overlooking the Bay of Naples. Sample the locally-produced liquor, Limoncello at one of the cafes on Piazza Tasso, or perhaps take the Circumvesuviana train to nearby Pompeii. There is also an optional tour to glamorous Capri or Pompeii.
Day 4 - Taormina (Sicily)
Taormina is full of culture, history and shopping opportunities. For pastry shops and upmarket Italian designer boutiques, go to Corso Umberto, or for exquisite views of the sea and Mount Etna, visit the much-photographed Greek amphitheatre. There is a cable car from Taormina down to Mazzaro Bay and the nature reserve of Isola Bella.
Day 5 - At sea
En route to Corfu, enjoy the elegant surroundings aboard Royal Clipper.
Day 6 - Corfu (Greece)
Corfu is one of the most beautiful Greek Islands, near the Albanian coast. Relax on the Liston arcade or see the rocky bays and pristine beaches at Paleokastritsa which are overlooked by the monastery of Theotoku.
Day 7 - Kotor (Montenegro)
Medieval Kotor sits at the end of a stunning fjord, backed by wooded hills, with winding lanes, picturesque little squares and an Italianate flavour inherited from a period of Venetian rule. Dominating the town is the magnificent Cathedral of Saint Tryphon.
Day 8 - Dubrovnik (Croatia)
Dubrovnik is a treasure made more precious by its miraculous restoration. Crowned by the Minceta Tower, stroll the 10th-century city walls for views of the city and the sea. The graceful Stradun leads to the Franciscan Monastery, restaurants, shops and the Sponza Palace.
Day 9 - Hvar
The popular island of Hvar has something for everyone; a lively nightlife, seafood restaurants, good bathing beaches, excellent local wines, and the peaceful villages of Vrvoska and Jelsa. For swimming, perhaps cross to the little island of Scedro.
Day 10 - Rovinj
Rovinj, a city in Croatia, is an active fishing port on the western coast. The streets are full of shops, restaurants and bars and the coastal area has some small bays.
Day 11 - Piran (Slovenia)
Often described as an open-air museum, Piran is a very attractive city with a vast and imposing square - the Tartini - which opens onto the waterfront. The town walls have been well-preserved and have seven gates, surrounding many Itallanate buildings from the city's 500-year Venetian rule and medieval red-roofed houses.
Day 12 - Venice (Italy)
Disembark Royal Clipper in Venice.
