Mediterranean: Royal Clipper : Eleven Night Rome to Venice Cruise

Our Rome to Venice Cruise is a Mediterranean Tall Ships voyage beyond compare

Our Rome to Venice Cruise is a Mediterranean Tall Ships voyage beyond compare

The Royal Clipper tall ship is the ultimate way to sail the Mediterranean. Taking no more than 227 passengers at a time, the atmosphere is intimate and laid-back, yet the service is of the highest standard. On the Rome to Venice cruise you will stay in cabins that are specifically designed for comfort, and the culinary delights that are served in the restaurant are an experience in themselves. Traditional maritime-inspired décor combines with modern amenities to make your voyage truly sublime. As the Royal Clipper’s 42 bright white sails billow in the wind, you wonder why you had not booked the Rome to Venice cruise sooner.

Passengers fly into Rome before transferring to Civitavecchia to board the ship. From there, Royal Clipper sets sail for a voyage around the entire coast of Italy, calling at several superb destinations in Sicily, Corfu, Montenegro and Croatia before finally docking in the grand city of Venice. The Rome to Venice cruise also includes a stop-off at the town of Piran in picturesque Slovenia. Sun yourself on golden beaches, wander the cobbled streets of rustic towns, sample the local food and drink, and most of all relax on this distinctive cruise holiday.

  • Day 2 - Palmarola and Ponza, Italy

    Palmarola and Ponza, Italy

    The secluded island of Palmarola is not widely known as a tourist destination. As such, it offers quiet relaxation and a peaceful stop on your cruise. It's surrounded by startlingly clear waters that can be enjoyed as you unwind at the beach and beautiful views to be taken in from a restaurant if you'd like to try the local cuisine.

    Ponza is a volcanic island located off the coast of mainland Italy, and it’s the largest in the Pontine Archipelago. Aside from the intimate Rome to Venice cruise, few tourists come to Ponza and as such, its heritage and traditions are unspoiled. Its laid back atmosphere coupled with distinguished natural beauty make Ponza a delight to explore from the minute you step off the ship.

    Meals included:Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Day 3 - Sorrento/Capri, Italy

    Sorrento/Capri, Italy

    Today you will visit the small town of Sorrento. This charming location offers spectacular views overlooking the Bay of Naples and has a range of cultural, historical and natural attractions for you to enjoy during your stop like the Sorrento Cathedral and Belltower or the Basilica of Sant'Antonio; both of which are fascinating historical sites with beautiful architecture.

    To contrast with the previous day, the Rome to Venice cruise also arrives on the island of Capri today - an extremely popular resort with tourists. And rightly so, as its luxuriant ambience and rugged beauty define its brazen charm and character. Terracotta roofed houses cling to steep hillsides, and there are numerous rustic churches and monuments to see in the towns and villages.

  • Day 4 - Taormina, Sicily

    Taormina, Sicily

    The Rome to Venice cruise reaches its most southerly point today and docks at Taormina, a city renowned for its ancient architecture.

Dominated by the famous volcano Mount Etna, the panoramas surrounding this city are exceptional, and its two golden beaches are irresistibly inviting.
