Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • The beautiful gardens of the Villas Rufolo and Cimbrone in Ravello with views along the Amalfi Coast
  • A day seeing the sights of Ancient and Renaissance Rome
  • A day on the island of Capri
Where does one start trying to describe the highlights on a cruise like this? Could it be the sublime views from every angle on Capri or along the Amalfi Coast? How about the thrill of looking at the Colosseum from the Palatine Hill? The Leaning Tower of Pisa… Ronda… Pompei or Portofino? Or maybe it is the lesser known delights such as a walk along the coast on Minorca or discovering Genoa’s hidden squares.  Sailing from Dover we have some days at sea to prepare for the delights ashore which are to come. Our first port of call is Málaga, from where we travel inland to Ronda, a city rich in Arab and Christian history set above a spectacular gorge. Now continuing deep into the Mediterranean we drop anchor in Mahon, the capital of Minorca. From here we sail onwards to the heart of this cruise, the magical west coast of Italy. All of the towns and cities we visit are impossibly romantic however you arrive, but arriving by sea, as travellers have done over the millennia, must beat them all.


From Sorrento we visit Capri out in the Bay of Naples. The whole island is beautiful, from the little pedestrian lanes which run between the houses with lush gardens to the views from villas. Here, as in most of the other ports we visit, a local guide will add to the experience.We have a day ashore in Naples to visit Pompei and explore the city, then cruise the short distance to Amalfi from where we visit two of the best known villas in Italy. Now heading north up the Italian coast we come to Civitavecchia, the port for Rome, from where we travel inland to the Eternal City for a day packed with fabulous historical highlights. Boudicca continues north now to Livorno, from where we visit Pisa and Lucca, then the day after finds us in the beautiful old port of Portofino, at the end of a peninsula on the Italian Riviera. We have one final Italian port to visit, Genoa, before we cruise south west across the Mediterranean, once more passing the Balearic Islands, to arrive in the Spanish port of Cartagena. Along with Rome, this is the city on this cruise with the longest record of human habitation.  Now Boudicca passes through the Straits of Hercules, past Gibraltar and out of the Mediterranean into the Atlantic. Before we arrive back in Dover we still have two further ports to visit – the Portuguese capital Lisbon and the Spanish city of Vigo. Boudicca is your home for this three week extravaganza. At the end of each day’s sightseeing or walking you return to the comfort of the ship and your cabin, then sail on effortlessly to another port.
