Voyage under full sail from the eternal city of Rome to the ruggedly beautiful Aeolian Islands, cruising past Stromboli’s active volcano to watch for nature’s exhilarating firework show.

Relax in the unspoiled Mediterranean charm of Ponza, admire the chic glamour of sophisticated Sorrento and soak up the flavours of the lemon-scented Amalfi Coast, where brightly-coloured houses cascade down to rocky bays.

Take the opportunity to visit enchanting Taormina and its atmospheric Greco-Roman Theatre set against the dramatic backdrop of brooding Mount Etna, before Royal Clipper calls at picturesque Lipari, the largest of the volcanic Aeolian Islands.

Amalfi Coast

Day 1 : UK - Civitavecchia (Rome, Italy)

Fly from Manchester to Civitavecchia, the port of Rome, and embark Royal Clipper.

Day 2 : Ponza - Palmarola

Ponza is a stunning island with hidden coves and soaring cliffs which are rich in mineral white betonite. There are superb restaurants and the island even has its own wine producing region. One main road travels from the port to the north of the island and offers amazing views. Royal Clipper then cruises to the island of Palmarola.

Day 3 : Sorrento

Sorrento overlooks the stunning Bay of Naples. Perhaps try the locally-produced Limoncello at a cafe on Piazza Tasso or hop on the Circumvesuviana train to historic Pompeii.

Day 4 : Amalfi

Picturesque Amalfi has beautiful narrow lanes lined with colourful houses which wind down to the sea. It has a lively piazza which is dominated by an impressive 11th-century Duomo. Nearby Positano with its sophisticated boutiques can easily be reached by bus.

Day 5 : Taormina

Royal Clipper docks in Taormina, full of culture, history and shopping opportunities. For pastry shops and upmarket Italian designer boutiques, head to Corso Umberto, or for stunning views of Mount Etna, visit the impressive Greek amphitheatre. There is a cable car from Taormina down to Mazzaro Bay and the nature reserve of Isola Bella.

Day 6 : Lipari

Lipari is the largest island in the Aeolian archipelago. Discover the impressive cliff-top citadel or perhaps hire a scooter or bicycle and see more of this beautiful island. The quaint fishing town of Porticello and its beautiful beach are worth a visit or maybe you'd like to follow the trail to scenic Terme di San Calogero. Later, Royal Clipper cruises past Stromboli.

Day 7 : Gaeta

Visit Gaeta, home to Monte Orlando Park with its incredible Roman ruins.

Day 8 : Civitavecchia (Rome) - UK

Disembark Royal Clipper in Civitavecchia and transfer to the airport for your return flight to Manchester.
