Cruises to Italy & Amalfi Coast

Italy is so photogenic; it’s almost as if the entire country was built for wanderlust-inducing travel pictures. Whether this is your first time, or you’ve been before, an Italy cruise offers a new angle and the convenience of unpacking just once as you go from remote coastal towns to big cities. Our Italy cruise itineraries are unmatched in scope, bringing you to iconic destinations like the Eternal City of Rome (Civitavecchia), the Amalfi Coast, and Vatican City, along with seldom-visited jewels. Wander seashell-pink villages stacked precipitously along the Adriatic sea on cruises to Amalfi. Float Venice’s canals while a gondolier sings a lovely serenade. Sip chianti al fresco as the late sun bathes Rome in golden light. Taste classic Naples pizza that was perfected generations ago. Experience an Italy vacation so immersive, you’ll forever feel at home in the region.
