Sunday, September 21 - ROME, ITALY (Embarkation)

With 28 centuries of celebrated history, Rome holds the edge, when it comes to unrivaled adventures. The city that sparked the world's largest empire is, very much, alive today with a jumble of ancient ruins, world-renowned art, and vivacious street culture. Here you can live la dolce vita, recalling the glory days of Ancient Rome and twirling forks full of pasta in a trattoria. Ride past centuries-old basilicas in a three-wheeled Ape Calessino, or stand in awe of paintings by Italian masters at Villa Borghese. Whether it's Vatican City's spiritual allure, Trastevere's backstreet charms, or the Colosseum's embattled legacy - The Eternal City endures endless adventures.

Tuesday, September 23 - SANTORINI, GREECE

Santorini is one of the world's most popular islands, known for its dramatic scenery, whitewashed villages, and fiery volcanic activity. Here adventure bubbles above the Aegean Sea in bold and breathtaking ways. A cable car takes you to the capital of Fira, a bustling cliff-top town awash with old cathedrals, enthralling museum collections, and cozy tavernas. Venture to the coast for a swim in the deep blue waters that lap red and black pebbled beaches. And peel back layers of lava and history among excavated Akrotiri. Whether by bicycle, ATV or on your two feet, exploring this Cyclades isle never fails to impress.


Wednesday, September 24 - EPHESUS (KUSADASI), TURKEY

The UNESCO World Heritage ruins of Ephesus, impress even those familiar with the world's other ancient cities. Though excavations have been underway for 150 years, only 20 percent of the city has been uncovered. Check out the Celsus Library - built in 117 A.D., the site is made up of towering columns highlighted by the statue of the goddess of wisdom. Cruises to Ephesus will give you a taste of Turkish life by strolling the seafront promenade and the bustling city center. Walk Marble Street, paved with marble slabs, which takes you from downtown to the Temple of Artemis - you can still see one lone remaining column from this wonder of the ancient world.


Thursday, September 25 - MYKONOS, GREECE

Nestled in the heart of Greece's Cyclades archipelago, Mykonos pulses with irrepressible energy. With its powder-white houses, sparkling blue waters, and red-hot nightlife, the Island of the Winds is as colorful as the people who call the island home. You can walk narrow marble pathways laced with purple bougainvillea blooms, or go cycling on two wheels past off-the-path Ano Mera village. Explore Greece's maritime history at Armeistsis Lighthouse, and check out the Folklore Museum's Mykonian ship models. Join the raucous beach party on Super Paradie's shimmering sands, or watch the sun burn out beyond an Aegean horizon from an open-air seaside taverna.

Saturday, September 27 - NAPLES/CAPRI, ITALY

With a skyline defined by towering Mount Vesuvius, Naples is a bustling Italian city brimming with beauty. Experience its rich neoclassical architecture at sites like Gesu Nuovo Church, with its lavish interior adorned with detailed frescoes, statues, and gold inlay. Go even deeper into history at the San Gennaro catacombs, where Naples' first bishops were buried in the second century A.D. Walk along the Miglio Sacro ("Holy Mile") and people-watch your way through the cafes and shops of the Sanita district with a zuccherato (sweetened espresso) in hand. Jump onboard a Naples cruise and take the short bus ride to the base of Mount Vesuvius - an easy 20-to 30-minute hike will take you to the summit - and tour the ruins of Pompeii afterward.


Sunday, September 28 - ROME, ITALY

Extend your stay in Rome to savor the delightful sights and flavors a bit longer, or head off to the airport to begin your journey back home.
