Mediterranean Gems: Southern Italy & Sicily Aboard Sea Cloud

Explore notable archaeological sites, tiny towns and seaside villages on this Mediterranean cruise. Beginning in the enchanting Croatian city of Dubrovnik, cruise to Naples on the alluring 58-guest Sea Cloud and wind your way down the southern part of Italy’s boot, calling on vibrant and welcoming places steeped in ancient history along the way. 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 clifftop towns, soaking up breathtaking views. Plus, with a little luck witness the orange glow of eruptions from the Stromboli volcano.

Explore hidden gems of the Adriatic, Ionian and Tyrrhenian Seas, with insights from National Geographic historians and expert Mediterranean guides. Follow part of Odysseus’s mythical route by sailing through the narrow Strait of Messina, which separates Sicily from the boot of Italy. It’s the purported location of Homer’s monsters Scylla and Charybdis, the rock and the hard place through which Odysseus had to sail. Other highlights of this trip include taking in the vibrant life and culture of Greco-Roman sites, the baroque city of Lecce and the mountain village of Gerace. Basking in the pastel-colored buildings and stunning vistas of the famous Amalfi Coast. Visiting Pompeii, abruptly destroyed by Vesuvius in the year 79, to witness its extraordinarily well-preserved homes. And enjoying a private dinner at Castello degli Schiavi, an 18th-century castle used as a locale for the Godfather films.

Discover the romance of tall ship sailing aboard the legendary Sea Cloud, a vessel of unmatched elegance and grace and a direct descendant of the opulent 30’s. Enjoy her golden age ambiance informally—in casual clothes and in the company of expert historians and naturalists. Sea Cloud’s polished brass capstans and portholes gleam, teak decks glow and interiors shine with Italian marble and carved oak paneling.

Day 2
At Sea & Paestum

Marvel as Sea Cloud’s billowing sails are raised the old-fashioned way, by hand, and the ship heads across the Bay of Naples this morning.

Anchoring off the town of Agropoli this afternoon, drive to Paestum, a UNESCO World Heritage site with some of the finest and best-preserved Greek temples anywhere. Founded around 600 B.C. by Greeks from Sybaris and called Poseidonia, it became a thriving city. Today, the three magnificent Doric temples—known as the Temple of Neptune, the “Basilica” of Hera and the Temple of Ceres—can be explored up close. The Temple of Neptune (a misnomer, as it was likely dedicated to Hera) is especially intact and allows visitors to imagine what it must have been like 2,500 years ago. It is large and graceful, with elegant rows of columns. The nearby museum has a superb collection of statues, paintings and reliefs from the site, many of them richly evocative in how they depict life in ancient times. After exploring Paestum, return to Sea Cloudand spend the afternoon sailing the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Day 3
Salerno or Pompeii

Spend the day exploring the historic city center of Salerno. Marvel at the 11th century Duomo of Salerno—a magnificent cathedral dedicated to Saint Matthew—and the gorgeous landscaped garden of Villa Comunale di Salerno. Or, opt to visit the UNESCO Site of Pompeii, a once thriving city buried in pumice and ash when Vesuvius erupted in A.D. 79, that wouldn’t be rediscovered for 1,500 years. Pliny the Younger wrote, “Darkness fell, not the dark of a moonless or cloudy night, but as if the lamp had been put out in a dark room.” Walking the 2,000-year-old streets, explore remarkably preserved villas, the forum, the splendid amphitheater (which seated 12,000), and temples.

Amalfi & At Sea

This morning, visit Amalfi. This storied town, part of the UNESCO World Heritage site that comprises the entire Amalfi Coast, has a glorious aspect, with pastel-hued houses clinging to the steep-sided mountains that comprise this indented stretch of coastline. Its pleasures are many: strolling the waterfront, with its marina and shops; visiting the ornate cathedral, with bronze doors dating from 1066; and just wandering the winding streets and alleyways to make your own discoveries. Spend the afternoon sailing.

Lipari, Stromboli & At Sea

The Aeolian Islands are not only famous for the winds of the god Aeolus, but also for some of the most well-known classical volcanoes. Set sails in the morning, anchoring for the afternoon at Lipari. Go ashore for a drive around the perimeter of the entire island, with spectacular views of the other Aeolian volcanoes, before returning to the main town. Visit the small but surprising archeological museum that has an extensive collection of Neolithic artifacts made from the local obsidian, which was also the foundation of the island’s prosperity during the Greco-Roman era. This evening, have dinner on deck as Sea Cloud cruises the 25 miles to Stromboli, and with a little luck see some of the pyrotechnics of this active volcano.

Taormina

In the wee hours of the morning pass through the narrow Strait of Messina, which separates Sicily from the “boot” of Italy. It’s the purported location of Homer’s monsters Scylla and Charybdis, the rock and the hard place through which Odysseus had to sail. Later this morning, drive up to the intoxicatingly beautiful town of Taormina, perched 820 feet above. With Mount Etna dominating to the south, this stunning medieval town boasts the now-fashionable walk on the pedestrian Corso Umberto, lined with exquisite buildings, and ends at the Greco-Roman Theater. This unforgettable theater was built right into the cliffside, overlooking the vast sea below, in the 3rd century B.C.. Enjoy a special lunch at a privately owned castle, the Castello degli Schiavi. This phenomenal 18th-century home was the setting for many scenes in the Godfather films. Meet members of the family that owns it and explore the extensive buildings and grounds. Return to Sea Cloud, which has been at anchor under the watchful gaze of Mount Etna.

Siracusa

Siracusa was the great rival to Athens, and its archaeological park features one of the largest theaters of antiquity. Its 15,000 seats are hewn out of bedrock and the theater is still in use today. Also visit the nearby limestone quarry, the cave of Dionysus’ Ear and the Roman amphitheater before returning to Sea Cloud for lunch. The afternoon features a walk through the medieval island town of Ortigia. The town is magical, with numerous little piazzas and narrow alleys, but the main feature is the Duomo, or Cathedral, which was built from the ruins of the ancient Temple of Athena. The history of Sicily can be told in the walls of this incredible construction. Enjoy time to explore on your own, if desired.

Otranto & Lecce, Italy

Stop at the picturesque Adriatic town of Otranto, whose idyllic seaside appearance contrasts with its turbulent past. Explore the cathedral, which has a large, intricate, fanciful 12th-century mosaic floor depicting real and mythological animals, a tree of life, historical figures and biblical scenes. The cathedral is also noted for the chapel with the skulls and bones of more than 800 martyrs of the Turkish invasion of 1480. Then walk the medieval walls for great views of the Aragonese Castle, the town and the sea.

Continue to Lecce, the “Florence of the South,” to explore its remarkable 17th-century baroque architecture and its narrow pedestrian streets and grand plazas on a walking excursion. Some of the greatest architectural masters of the time competed to see who could create the most beautiful buildings, and the highly fanciful, ornamented style was given its own name: “Lecce Baroque.” The walking tour of Lecce reveals the Basilica di Santa Croce and adjacent Palazzo del Governo; the extraordinary Piazza del Duomo, with its cathedral and the Palazzo Vescovile; and the 2nd-century Roman amphitheater. After visiting Lecce, return to the ship and sail into the Adriatic.
