About the ports




Rome is a magnificence of the ancient city. Whether it is the Forum, the Sistine Chapel, the Pantheon or St. Peter's Basilica that sparks your interest and intellect, Rome is home to a lifetime's worth of historical, architectural and spiritual sites.


NaplesFramed by Mount Vesuvius along a dramatic skyline, the 2,800 year-old port city of Naples is chock full of historical sites, churches, and museums that make it an incredible place for you to explore. In addition, in the region where pizza was first invented, you know the food is going to be incredible.

Messina, Sicily

SicilyJust three miles off the coast of southern Italy's mainland is the port town of Messina on the island of Sicily. This bustling town has a complex history with roots in Greek mythology but, because of an earthquake in the early 1900s, it's a relatively young city architecturally. You will find the town has an interesting blend of new architecture and old styles




Athens is the biggest city in Greece, and one of the most important in the Mediterranean Sea. See the glories of ancient Greece and enjoy the view of this beautiful city from the top of Acropolis 

Santorini, Greece



Here on the island of Santorini, you will find a classic Greek seascape—whitewashed houses accented by sea-blue roofs.




Rhodes, GreeceRhodes

Rhodes, the friendliest city in the Mediterranean, is situated at the island’s northernmost point. This sunny retreat is also home to many historic sites, such as the ruins of the Temple of Venus and the medieval Street of Knights.




In exotic Istanbul, you could spend an entire day strolling through the Grand Bazaar, exploring the famous Blue Mosque, or wandering through the majestic Topkapi Palace, with its gardens, libraries and 400- roomharem.
