Beautiful views of the Amalfi coast, Italy

Explore the Beautiful Amalfi Coast

This cruise offers guests the chance to experience the very best of the Amalfi Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site well-known for its breathtakingly beautiful coastlines. Pristine blue waters lap against rocky shores and golden beaches, overlooked by picturesque towns perched on top of craggy cliffs. When Borealis arrives in Amalfi itself, join us on a boat tour to Positano, to discover the most famous and iconic village in the region – this charming cliffside town is adorned with sun-bleached peach, pink, and terracotta villas, reached by sloped cobblestone streets fringed with wisteria-covered buildings. From Sorrento, explore Capri - the tiny ‘island of love’, home to the world-renowned Piazzetta and its quaint pavement cafés, and the beautiful Augustus Gardens which are built in a series of flower-decked terraces offering spectacular views over the bay.

Sample Flavours of Italy

Throughout this outstanding cruise, discover the unique flavours of the Italian Riviera with visits to Villa Paradiso in Amalfi – an enchanting villa belonging to the historic Pansa family, whose farm is entirely cultivated by the famous lemons of this region; and a Limoncello farm in Sorrento, with opportunities to sample the delicious liqueur they produce locally. From Salerno, enjoy a scenic drive across Italian countryside to Tenuta Vannulo – Italy’s most luxurious mozzarella factory, where the buffaloes are kept in pampered conditions, including having massages and misty showers, so as to yield a superior product from relaxed and healthy cattle.

Discover Roman History

Take the chance to really immerse yourself in this region’s rich Roman history. From Civitavecchia – gateway to the Eternal City – explore Rome’s most famous historical sites, including the Vatican City, St. Peter’s Square and the Colosseum. When in Cartagena, join a tour to the city’s Ancient Roman buildings with a local archaeologist to see the remains of a thermal bath complex, atrium building dating back to the first century B.C, and the temple devoted to Roman Gods, Isis and Serapis. From Salerno, a tour to the ruins of Pompeii is not to be missed, as you learn more about this well-reserved ancient city that was frozen in time after Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. Dr Julie Ackroyd, Fellow of the Higher Education Authority, will hold insightful talks on the Roman history of the destinations being visited on this cruise.
