Coach from Milan to Montecatini Terme

This morning, we join our fellow Lions members and board our coach for the journey from Milan to Montecatini Terme. On our way, we will make a stop in the home of Ferrari and Maserati – Modena. Apart from the auto industry, Modena is also known for its medieval history, including the 12th century Romanesque Cathedral. We will enjoy a 3 hour city tour, plus a balsamic vinegar tasting, which is something else that Modena is famous for.

After our tour, we continue on to Montecatini Terme which is perhaps the largest and most famous of the spa towns in Tuscany and our overnight location. After checking in to our hotel, we will enjoy a 3 course dinner at the hotel tonight.

Accommodation: Hotel Adua & Regina Di Saba or similar

Montecatini to Civitavecchia

After breakfast this morning, we depart for the sea port of Civitavecchia. We will arrive in time to embark upon the beautiful Norwegian Jade ready to sail on our next adventure.

Uncover history, stunning architecture and more on this exciting cruise through the Greek Isles and coastal Italy. While in Santorini, visit the beautiful whitewashed hilltop towns of Oia and Fira and their breathtaking views of the caldera below. Climb up the magnificent Acropolis in Athens and stand in awe of the Parthenon, the beautiful temples and the view over the ancient city stretched out before you. In Valletta, Malta, admire the stunning scenery and wander through imposing churches and down the streets of fortified towns where the Knights of St. John once held sway. And spend a glorious day in Florence taking in the historic Duomo, or "prop up" the leaning tower in nearby Pisa

Cruise Itinerary: 
The Norwegian Jade holds a maximum of 2,402 guests and was originally built in 2006. The ship was refurbished on 2017. Aboard there are a crew of over 1000 to look after you.

Santorini, Greece

Whitewashed villages clinging to the sides of the sea cliffs have made the volcanic island of Santorini one of the most widely photographed places in the world. The island's charm and subtle mystery have even made it a target of speculation as the location of the lost city of Atlantis.
