Northern Italy Under Sail: Genoa, Pisa, and the Amalfi Coast aboard Sea Cloud II

Skip to


Shipbuilders, explorers, merchants, and fishermen—the people of the northern Italian coast have been intricately linked to the sea for many generations. Ligurian cities like Genoa, an important port and birthplace of Christopher Columbus; and Camogli, known as The City of a Thousand Sails for its impressive shipbuilding history, proudly display their maritime heritage. We will visit maritime museums, stroll along beautiful harbor fronts, and explore well-preserved waterfront old towns as we travel between Nice and Naples. Pisa and Elba have many offerings beyond the famous leaning tower and sites related to Napoleon, and Amalfi does not disappoint with its legendary villa-covered hills overlooking the azure Tyrrhenian Sea.

Highlights

The Fontana dei Putti (Fountain with Angels),  Pisa Cathedral, and Leaning Tower of Pisa at sunrise, Pisa, Tuscany, Italy, Europe
  • In Pisa, see the iconic Leaning Tower, part of a complex of medieval architectural masterpieces

  • Bask under the billowing sails of the square-rigger Sea Cloud II along the coast of Northern Italy

  • Discover Genoa’s cultural treasures like the Strada Nuova and the stunning Cathedral of San Lorenzo, believed to hold the relics of St. John the Baptist

  • On Elba Island explore the fortified town of Portoferraio and Napoleon’s villa

  • Spend time in Amalfi, the crown gem of the storied Amalfi Coast
