Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

Witness an abundance of remarkable Mediterranean coastal towns teetering charmingly on steep cliffsides and surrounded by azure blue seas on this epic cruise of the Amalfi Coast. Indulge in 'La Dolce Vita' - the sweet life - by venturing on coastal hikes, enjoying leisurely boat rides, or meandering through narrow cobbled streets, discovering local cafes offering authentic cuisines, like Scialatielli pasta with fresh seafood, or savouring the sweet taste of an ice-cold limoncello liqueur. Meanwhile, in Tangier, enjoy the practice of drinking Moroccan tea with family or new-found friends. There will also be chances to delve into Roman history at archaeological sites such as Cartagena’s amphitheatre and the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum (from Salerno), and join us on the decks of Bolette as we sail past Benirras Beach, timed by our planners to capture the iconic Ibizan sunset.

Capri, Italy

Explore Coastal Cliffs & Teetering Towns

On your cruise to the Mediterranean and the beautiful Amalfi Coast, you'll discover a multitude of tiny villages and towns that seem to teeter on the edge of cliffs. Sorrento offers colourful buildings framing the little harbour at Marina Grande that look out over the Gulf of Naples, where the scent of citrus fruit hangs in the end, blending perfectly with the salty sea air. You'll also visit the historic port city of Salerno, where an exploration of its medieval streets and vibrant waterfront is not to be missed. As you sail past the famed Amalfi Coast, turn your eyes upwards to witness the picture-perfect towns here perched at the top of craggy cliffs, surrounded by lemon groves, before gazing at the island of Capri and its steep cliffs that rise out of azure blue waters, adorned with elegant villas. Join us on deck as we sail along turquiose seas, past the lush hills of north-west Ibiza, and watch the sun set against the backdrop of the 'White Island'.

Cruise to the Amalfi Coast

Immerse yourself in La Dolce Vita

Italians live by the concept of 'La Dolce Vita', translating as 'The Sweet Life', by encapsulating the essence of enjoying life's pleasures and cultural richness. On this Bolette cruise, you'll have plenty of opportunities to soak up the warm Mediterranean sun while immersing yourself in the Amalfi Coast's delicious cuisine. The region is well-known for its bountiful supply of lemons, used to make the tangy and refreshing limoncello liquer, perfect when served ice-cold and accompanying Spuntini (small bites) like bruschetta or with a richly decadent tiramisu. Be sure to savour Scialatielli pasta served simply with clams, mussels, prawns, and cuttlefish. Meanwhile, vineyards are dotted across the countryside, producing wines of unparallelled quality and depth, giving an insight into Italy's rich winemaking heritage. You may wish to sample some of the region's most acclaimed wines before returning to Bolette to enjoy a wine-tasting session with our on board Sommelier.
