Discover our Italy ports of call.
Parmesan, balsamico and fettuccine are just a few of the delights invented here. But there’s lots more to enjoy, such as Byzantine mosaics in the 1450 year old Basilica of Sant Apollinare.
Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and Normans have all left their mark here. Significant traces from all of these periods still remain here, including the Roman theatre and the Odeon.
From La Spezia, which provides ready access to the Cinque Terre region, you can travel to Florence and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Also, enjoy La Spezia's spectacular collection of cathedrals.
For Renaissance treasures, nowhere compares to Florence. The Uffizi is home to Michelangelo’s David, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Leonardo’s Annunciation. In addition, you’ll find architectural icons like Brunelleschi’s Duomo.
Birthplace of Christopher Columbus, the city is bordered on one side by the ocean, and on the other by mountains. In the lower city, you’ll find cobblestone streets and unique shopping opportunities.
You’re spoiled for choice in the city that invented the pizza. Embark on a trip to Mt. Vesuvius for mind-blowing views before descending to Pompeii, or board a boat to Capri.
Stroll tiny Portofino, a perfectly poised pastel village taking refuge on its own secluded peninsula. Stop at a charming café to grab a bite and watch the yachts bobbing in the harbour.
If ever there was a place to return to and delve deeper, it’s Rome. Explore hidden piazzas, opulent baroque churches, and classical ruins. Not to mention the best of Italian fashion.
Founded by the ancient Greeks, the ‘Door of Sicily’ is the setting for Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. Why not linger over a glass of local red wine in dramatic Duomo Square?
Picture yourself sipping hot chocolate at the legendary Caffé Florian on Venice’s fashionable Piazza San Marco, or taking a scenic canal ride by gondola through the mysterious waterways.
Italy is one of Europe’s most popular destinations, and offers so much to see and do. The diversity of Italy’s cities is truly magnificent: discover the imperial past in Rome, the Leaning Tower in Pisa and the gothic charm of Venice. With over two thousand years of world-shaping history, Italy is heaven on earth for history enthusiasts. Retrace the steps of the gladiators in the imposing Coliseum, learn about ancient Roman culture in the Forum and marvel at the renaissance splendour of St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. Unforgettable experiences await you on a Celebrity Cruise to Italy: explore Rome, Venice, Sicily and Sorrento. Enjoy Italy’s famous cuisine and quaffable wines.

The summer months in Italy are warm and generally dry, with temperatures in the mid-twenties Celsius. Rome can be very hot at the height of summer and we recommend you wear light clothes and take plenty of water and sun tan lotion. Take a small rucksack and pack comfortable shoes for your explorations.
