While there, take a day trip to the island of Capri, celebrated by the Ancient Romans for its breathtaking natural beauty.
Port #5: Messina (Sicily), Italy –The third largest city in Sicily — the large island off the southern coast of Italy — was a common medieval port for knights on their way to the Crusades. The city has been almost entirely rebuilt, so you can still visit many of these landmarks today, including the Catania Church, the Teatro Vittorio Emanuele, and the city’s cathedral with its unique astronomical clock.

Port #6: Zadar, Croatia – Thousands of years of history run through the streets of Zadar, the commercial and naval power of the Dalmatian coast. The city was under Roman, Ostrogoth, and Byzantine rulers over the centuries — witness this blending of culture and architecture, then visit Plitvice National Park for some natural serenity.
Port #7: Venice, Italy – Our last stop is the “City of Canals,” built on more than 100 islands and the water running between them. These ancient streets weave you through cafés and plazas while gondoliers row keelless boats up and down the canals.
