Dating back to 2nd millennium B.C., Naples, an MSC Mediterranean Cruises destination, is one of Italy’s ancient jewels. Boasting a vibrant historical centre set around a striking harbour bay, discover architectural landmarks, masterpiece artworks, and sumptuous food. The dormant volcano of Mount Vesuvius offers a picture-postcard backdrop. From the city, travel further afield to the archaeological site of Pompeii or take in Capri’s glamorous culture.

 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 
• Pompeii
• Capri
• Sorrento
 
Discover the archaeological site of Pompeii which lingers in the shadow of majestic Mount Vesuvius. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this ancient Roman city was buried under pumice and ash during the volcanic eruption of 79 AD.  Today, Pompeii looks frozen in time, offering glimpses of fossilised people, preserved baths, crumbling columns, and fabulous frescoes. On this MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll explore the many artefacts retrieved before going on a guided-tour of the excavation site where you’ll learn more about the city’s history. 
 
After a short ferry cruise across the Bay of Naples, you’ll come to Capri, one of the most beautiful islands in Italy. This MSC Cruises excursion begins with a visit to the charming town of Anacapri with its magnificent Villa San Michele and dramatic clifftop scenery. Take in the colourful houses, admire the lush gardens, and soak up the island's laid-back atmosphere. Then, explore the cafes and boutiques around Piazza Umberto I before visiting the rock formation Faraglioni.
 
After disembarking from the ship, a 1 hour coach transfer to the stunning coastal town of Sorrento. Starting from piazza Tasso, walk through the narrow streets of this historic city filled with landmarks built hundreds of years ago. Look forward to marvellous outside views of the 15th-century Sedil Dominova building, the originally 11th-century Sorrento Cathedral and the 14th-century Church of San Francesco and its adjoining cloister.

    Italy

    History, gastronomy and fashion
    History, gastronomy and fashion

    A cruise to Italy is an emotional roller coaster. Rome is a tremendous city quite unlike any other, and in terms of historical sights outstrips everywhere else in the country by some way.
     
    Liguria, the small coastal province along the north-west coast, has long been known as the “Italian Riviera” and is accordingly crowded with sun-seekers for much of the summer.
    In Veneto the main focus of interest is, of course, Venice: a unique city, and every bit as beautiful as its reputation would suggest. Tuscany in central Italy represents perhaps the most commonly perceived image of the country, with its classic rolling countryside and the art-packed towns of Florence and Pisa.

    The south proper begins with the region of Campania. Its capital, Naples, is a unique, unforgettable city, the spiritual heart of the Italian south. Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, has underrated pleasures, too, notably the landscape of its Gargano peninsula and the souk-like qualities of its capital, Bari.

    As for Sicily, the island is really a place apart, with a wide mixture of attractions ranging from some of the finest preserved Hellenistic treasures in Europe, to a couple of Italy’s most appealing Mediterranean beach resorts in Taormina and Cefalù, not to mention some gorgeous upland scenery.
