Italy cruise guide


Few countries can boast the rich history and culture of a place like Italy. From stunning architecture to fine dining, Italy has it all.

We’ve got a number of great deals over on our Italy cruise deals page. But read on to find out why Italy should be at the top of your list this year.

Why choose an Italy cruise?

Italy is absolutely full of fascinating landmarks and beautiful scenery, spread out across a number of world-renowned cities. On an Italy cruise, you’ll have the chance to visit some or all of these destinations.

Rome is understandably many people’s first priority when it comes to places to visit. The country’s capital was once home to a sprawling empire whose impact can still be seen across large parts of Europe to this day. As you might expect, there’s a lot of Roman history here, including the legendary Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica, the Pantheon and Circus Maximus.

Florence is home to the infamous ‘leaning tower’ of Pisa, as well as numerous galleries and museums, such as the Pitti Palace and Uffizi Gallery. Florence is known as a centre of fashion in Italy.

Venice needs little introduction – with canals in place of streets, gondola rides and romantic scenery at every corner.

Sardinia boasts some of Italy’s cleanest beaches; Genoa is a huge medieval city; and Sicily is home to an active volcano and rugged mountains. There are just so many places worth visiting in Italy, we haven’t got room to list them all here – and a cruise is surely one of the best ways to fit them all in.

Cruise lines currently offering trips to Italy include Holland America, MSC, Cunard, Royal Caribbean, P&O and Celebrity Cruises.

Other destinations you’ll get to visit on some of these cruises include Greece, Croatia and Malta. What more could you ask for?
