Enchanting Southern Italy & Sicily by historic tall ship

Sail between the enchanting Croatian city of Dubrovnik and Naples aboard the historic tall ship Sea Cloud. Wind your way around the southern part of Italy’s “boot,” calling on vibrant and welcoming places steeped in ancient history. Marvel at ornate cathedrals and remarkable baroque buildings, explore great sites of antiquity—from renowned Pompeii to the less-visited Greek temples of Paestum—and meander through unspoiled cliff-top towns, soaking up breathtaking views. Plus, with a little luck, witness the orange glow of eruptions from the Stromboli volcano. Time at sea offers a glimpse into the bygone golden age of sailing. Stand on deck to watch the orchestrated frenzy of crew members going high aloft in the riggings to handset 30 sails. Feel the ship heel underfoot in the wind, and measure the passing of time luxuriating on deck and watching landscapes on the horizon slowly change.

  • Explore Greco-Roman sites, the baroque city of Lecce, and the medieval island town of Ortigia, and take in their vibrant life and culture

  • See the Amalfi Coast, with its pastel-colored buildings and stunning vistas

  • Visit Pompeii, abruptly destroyed by Vesuvius in the year A.D. 79, and witness its extraordinarily well-preserved homes

  • Enjoy a private lunch at Castello degli Schiavi, an 18th-century castle used as a locale for the Godfather films
