Milan - Hotel Stay
Arriving in Milan, you’ll be transferred from the airport to your hotel for your five-night stay in the city. During your stay you’ll have ample time to explore the city and enjoy the thrills of the Grand Prix at nearby Monza.
Italian Grand Prix - Practice Day and Hotel Stay
The setting for Italy’s Grand Prix is in Monza, just northeast of Milan in acres of beautiful parkland. During Practice Day you’ll have the chance to discover one of the world’s most famous race tracks: keep an eye out for the original banked corners and the flyover bridge, both renowned in the world of Formula 1.
Italian Grand Prix - Qualifying Day and Hotel Stay
The action heats up on Qualifying Day as the drivers go full throttle around ‘La Pista Magica’ – the circuit is famously known for hosting Formula 1’s fastest lap, with tight corners providing a good test of the brakes. The best views are from the seats in the grandstand – which is luckily where your seats are located – with a great vantage point over the Variante del Rettifilo chicane.
Italian Grand Prix - Race Day and Hotel Stay
Forza, forza! Race day dawns and it’s time to watch the culmination of the Grand Prix from your grandstand seats. The atmosphere is electric as the most famous drivers of Formula One battle for the top spot on the famous Monza circuit. Afterwards, join in with the celebrations at the track and back in Milan for your final night in the city.
Venice - Embark Norwegian Pearl
You’ll be transferred from Milan to the beautiful island city of Venice to embark Norwegian Pearl for your Mediterranean cruise. With a bowling alley, 16 restaurants to choose from, an indulgent wellness centre and a striking casino, you can’t fail to be entertained on board.
Your first port of call brings you to Dubrovnik, the terracotta-roofed city on Croatia’s Adriatic Coast. Ringed by thick fortress walls and dramatic hillsides lush with forest, the city is beautiful from all angles. Take a dip in the emerald waters, walk the gleaming limestone pedestrianised streets of the Stradun, lined with cafes and boutiques, or head up to Mount Srd on the cable car for the view.
Your next stop brings you to Kotor, the second fortified town of your cruise. Its narrow streets and Romanesque churches make for atmospheric wandering, while offshore you’ll find two tiny islands which show the region’s ancient history. Keen hikers will enjoy the walks around Mount Lovćen.
Sailing to the island of Corfu you’ll be mesmerised by its green interior and crystal-clear waters, which lap onto beautiful beaches. Take the time to discover the Venetian old town and enjoy the views over the harbour, or spend a relaxing day paddling in the shallow waters of one of the island’s loveliest beaches.
One of Greece’s most iconic destinations, Santorini is the jewel of the Aegean and on many traveller’s must-see lists. Tiny sugar-cube houses with bright blue shutters cling to the caldera peering into the deep abyss below, while on the opposite coast dark volcanic sand beaches are lapped by cerulean waters. Hire a moped or quad bike to explore the tiny island from top to bottom.
Famous for its windmills, beautiful beaches and sleek bars, Mykonos is a delightful island to explore. Sip a refreshing Mythos beer overlooking the harbour at Little Venice, shop for trinkets in the backstreets of the island’s main town or hop aboard a boat to visit the mythical island of Delos, located just off the coast.
Docking at Athens you’ll have the chance to explore the city’s incredible history. Take a hike up to the Acropolis to be mesmerised by the well-preserved columns and enjoy the views over the city, tread the tiny streets of Plaka and enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants in Monastiraki – don’t miss hearty moussaka or delicate, flaky kataifi pastries drenched in sweet syrup.
Use your day at sea to enjoy the fantastic facilities on the ship, including a bowling alley and a world-class spa. Take your taste buds on a trip around the world at one of the 15 bars and restaurants: on board you’ll find French, Asian fusion, Brazilian and Italian cuisine. After dark, party at the Bliss Ultra Lounge & Night Club, with its stylish bar.
You’ll sail next for the town of Taormina, located on the east coast of Sicily. With its delicious Italian cuisine, dramatic cliffs and tiny nature reserve at Isola Bella, you’ll find plenty to see here – not to mention the towering peak of still-smouldering Mount Etna, an active volcano with footpaths leading to the summit.
Whatever your passion, you can indulge in Naples. History fans will love exploring the preserved town of Pompeii, destroyed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, landscape lovers can head to the Amalfi Coast, fashionistas can shop in the boutiques of Capri and foodies can dine on traditional Napoli pizzas in the city in which they were invented.
The port of Livorno is the gateway to Tuscany and its stunning scenery. Make a day trip to one of its glorious cities – perhaps Renaissance Florence, or Pisa with its Leaning Tower – or hire a car and drive the quiet roads in search of vineyards, food markets and country restaurants where you can indulge in the cucina povera that the region is famous for.
Civitavecchia (Rome) - Disembark Norwegian Pearl
You’ll disembark the ship in Civitavecchia, the port for Rome, for your transfer to the Italian capital. You’ll have two nights in a central hotel to explore the city and its fascinating landmarks, designer shopping and delectable Roman cuisine. Start with the Trevi Fountain and toss a coin over your left shoulder: it’s said to ensure your return to the city.
Rome - Hotel Stay
Rome is like an open-air museum, so put on your most comfortable shoes and explore by foot. Walk in the footsteps of gladiators at the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, stroll the neighbourhood of Trastevere to live like a local and promenade along the Spanish Steps to imagine life as a starlet in a Fellini film.
