From Day 1, - Day 2, 5:00 PM
Discover enchanting Ravenna, home of some of Italy’s most captivating hidden gems including breathtaking architecture and 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites. From early Christian mosaics to majestic churches and impressive palaces, this charming seaside port is a haven for lovers of art and architecture. What’s more, Ravenna has a surprisingly rich history — it served as the capital of the Western Roman Empire for three hundred years and became a thriving hub for talented craftsmen, artists and master masons. Dedicate a couple of days to getting to know Ravenna before or after your cruise. Plus, Venice is just over two hours away by car, putting one of Italy’s star destinations well within reach. Once there, you can wander iconic cultural treasures like St. Mark’s Basilica or the Campanile — and of course no visit is complete without a gondola ride beneath the Rialto Bridge. Or take a quick one-hour car ride to Bologna and eat your way around the Mercato Delle Erbe or climb Asinelli Tower to catch amazing views of the terracotta-roof city. Cruising from Ravenna gives you the chance to go off the beaten path while also visiting Venice’s famous canals and Bologna’s enchanting streets.

From 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Messina is Sicily's panoramic gateway — located on the northeastern corner of the island, the city just kisses the boot of mainland Italy's southern tip. Get lost among the patchwork of churches and antique palaces. The Messina Cathedral is in the heart of the city, and its famous bell tower houses the largest mechanical clock in the world — every day at noon, the statues move to Schubert's "Ave Maria." In front of this church, you'll find the Fontana di Orione, a 16th-century fountain that's a work of art in itself, with sculptures of figures from ancient mythology. Cruise to Sicily and take a leisurely walk to the Sacrario di Cristo Re, a hilltop church with panoramic views of the town and the surrounding mountains.
