Treasures Of The Mediterranean - Northbound

Tauck $8290 11 Details


Iconic places in the sun...
Whitewashed villages clinging to cliffs high above the sea... medieval villas along the Amalfi Coast with views so breathtaking, they've inspired the work of writers, artists and composers for generations... rumbling volcanoes putting on a fiery nighttime show as you sail past... tiny islands dotted with weathered traces of temples and theatres that today only hint at the power of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations that built them... and hidden coves that appear so pristine that you'll swear you're among the first group of travelers ever to lay eyes or set foot on them. This is the Mediterranean as you've always dreamed it should be, explored aboard a sailing ship small enough to reach those treasures that larger vessels overlook...

Sicily, The Amalfi Coast & Rome - Northbound

Tauck $8990 11 Details


Islands at the tip of Italy's boot... They've been conquered in turn by different invaders, with some, like Malta and Sicily, boasting a history of occupation that dates back thousands of years. Once you see the sensational seaside views from the cliff-top, Maltese city of Mdina, walled since medieval times, you'll discover why so many visitors were eager to claim this island gem for their own. Sicily, inhabited since the Ice Age, was a favorite trophy for the Greeks in the 5th and 6th centuries BC, followed in turn by a succession of rulers, including the Romans, the Vandals, the Arabs, the Normans, the Swabians, the House of Aragon and the Bourbons. The landscapes on this large Mediterranean island have proven to be fertile ground for vineyards, citrus groves, almond and cherry trees - and beaches. While its conquerors had their own reasons for turning Sicily into one of their colonies, travelers today revel in the archaeological treasures they left behind. You'll see an ancient Greek theatre and temple in Siracusa, a Roman renovation in Taormina, an open-air Arab casbah in Palermo, and Punic and Norman fortifications in medieval Erice - mingling with magnificent frescoed duomos, grand piazzas, Baroque balconies and terraced towns that speak volumes about Sicilian life, past and present.

You’ll then get to see some of these very places and landmarks that the Impressionist Masters captured on canvas at the Musée d’Orsay.

Relive the grandeur of royalty at Château Malmaison, the former home of Napoleon and Josephine Bonaparte, and at Chateau de Bizy, once referred to as “the Versailles of Normandy.” Blend a passion for the good life with culture, art, architecture and timeless landscapes, and you have Northern France.
