Venice to Civitavecchia (Rome) Mediterranean Cruise

The reasons to travel to the Mediterranean are many, and they are evident every day on this journey. Travel through the enchanting Adriatic and around Italy’s “boot”, wandering among olive groves and vineyards and strolling down cobbled streets. Go truffle hunting and wine tasting in Slovenia. Recall Roman times in Dubrovnik, and discover Kotor, tucked away in Europe’s southernmost fjord.

Discover the wonders of Cortina d’Ampezzo, the Queen of the Dolomites.   It is a land of rugged mountains, sensational light and charming traditions.  Join an experienced alpine guide for a hike along one of the via Ferrata (Italian for ‘iron way’).   Then, spend the following day relaxing and enjoying the entrancing town of Cortina.

Guests should schedule their flights to arrive into Venice’s Marco Polo International Airport.

The via Ferrata (Italian for "iron way") is a mountain route equipped with steel cables, ladders, and other fixed anchors, for example wooden walkways and suspended bridges. These are particularly helpful for hikers of all skill levels and and allows those not versed in climbing technique to hike on ledges, climb vertical walls, and reach the peaks of mountains.  You can set your own pace and hike for as little or as much time as you’d like.

History

From 1638 the building,originally belonging to the Dandolo family, hosted the first "Ridotto Pubblico", a place to which nobility and people from all walks of life, (adventurers, courtesans, swindlers, and travellers) would retire for pleasure and intrigue. Giacomo Casanova considered this place the ideal backdrop for his conquests. The recent restoration has managed to revive, with a contemporary feel, the atmosphere of this historic building. It is a romantic setting for an unforgettable holiday. Guests can stay in the fascinating hall of the historic "Sala del Ridotto", which has been recently restored. The Sala del Ridotto is also available for private receptions and business meetings.

Restaurant and Bar

In the Grand Canal Restaurant diners can sample traditional Venetian cuisine in immaculate decor with a delightful atmosphere. The Grand Canal Restaurant is frequented by an international clientele, but also by Venetians who choose this elegant restaurant because of its excellent food. A particular emphasis is placed on the seafood and fresh vegetables that are so essential to local specialities. The quality of the food is only matched by impeccable service and attention to customers’ requirements. A dinner or an aperitif on the terrace is an unforgettable experience.

01MIDAMA-A Luxury on the Amalfi Coast

Departure: Amalfi

Duration: 1.5 Days/1 Night

Rejoin ship: Sorrento

Reserve: A minimum of 90 days prior to sailing

This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure requires advance booking through Silversea Reservations by the applicable booking deadline specified above. Requests received after this date may be accommodated on a space-available basis and the programme price is subject to change. Payment in full is due within 120 days prior to sailing. This programme is non-refundable if cancelled within 90 days of sailing.

Travel the Amalfi Coast, considered one of the most beautiful coastal drives in the world. Wander the village of Amalfi, sample Southern Italian cuisine, and shop for souvenirs and majolica ware. Then, explore Positano and indulge ashore with an overnight stay at the famous deluxe Relais Chateaux Hotel San Pietro.

DAY ONE -Amalfi/Amalfi Coast/Positano

Tender ashore at the appointed time to meet your English-speaking guide who will be waiting at the pier.  Meet your guide and explore the village of Amalfi and visit the ornate Cathedral, founded in 1086, which contains two medieval pulpits, Roman sarcophagi and paintings by southern Renaissance artist Andrea da Salerno. The Amalfi Cathedral is a striking structure with 62 steps leading to its entrance. Its façade is Arabic-influenced Romanesque with a bold mix of stripes, arches, mosaics and textures. The bell tower and cupola are decorated with green and yellow tiles. The heavenly Cloister of Paradise is home to the tombs of Amalfi’s wealthy merchants and features Moorish styling in white marble. Take a stroll around the courtyard and see its lovely Mediterranean garden as well as the ancient artworks that grace the walkways. The cloister leads into the Basilica of the Crucifix where you can see some amazing frescoes. The cathedral’s museum and treasury is located in the basilica. The Crypt of St. Andrew is located in an altar decorated with beautiful Baroque murals dating from 1660.

Afterwards, travel the Amalfi Coast, considered one of the most beautiful coastal drives in the world and drive to the legendary San Pietro Hotel.   The narrow road winds along the side of rocky seaside cliffs and offers breath-taking views of the Italian Riviera.  Marvel at the rocks rising from the sea and see small boats in sheltered sandy coves that look like brightly-coloured toys from above.

The famous San Pietro Hotel, located a short distance south of Positano, takes its name from a cliff-side chapel.  Entrance to the hotel is by elevator.  Check-in and proceed to your room.  Later a three-course dinner in the hotel awaits you.  Watch the sun set and enjoy a romantic evening.

Overnight at the San Pietro Hotel – Positano

DAY TWO – Positano/Sorrento

Begin your day with breakfast before check-out.  Meet at the designated area and re-join the minibus for the drive to Positano.  Positano is primarily a pedestrian village and your minibus will need to park atop of the hill to allow you to walk to city’s main centre.  Once a small fishing village, Positano is now the star attraction of the entire Amalfi coast.  White Moorish-type houses cling dramatically to slopes around a small sheltered bay.  Many of the houses can only be reached via steep staircases.  Following a brief introductory tour, continue exploring on your own or browse the designer boutiques, souvenir shops and art galleries found along the main street and some narrow alleys.

A 1.5-hour visit allows you to take in the unique setting and special ambience of Positano.  

Afterwards re-join your awaiting ship in Sorrento.
