Spend 2-nights in a first-class hotel in Rome to explore this great city. In Monte Carlo, stroll the marvelous quarter and take a glimpse at the iconic pink Grimaldi Palace. For a full Monte Carlo experience, enjoy wining, dining and gaming. In Naples, there is much to see from castles to cathedrals but make time for pizza. Naples is the birthplace of this beloved creation, and they have rules. Only mozzarella di bufala can be used and the dough can only be stretched so far. Your last stop is romantic Venice, where a gondola ride down the winding canals is practically required. If you can stay a few days after your cruise, head to the lavishly decorated Caffè Florian in Piazza San Marco. Established in 1720, this is the place to people watch, drink fine wine, sip coffee and enjoy nightly live music. Conclude your cruise with a 2-night stay in a first-class hotel in Venice with sightseeing and a visit to the Murano and Burano Islands.
