    Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. Its wider part to the south is surrounded by hills that were left following the glacier recession, while the narrow northern part is enclosed by the mountains that create its fjord-shaped configuration and provide a very mild Mediterranean climate. The vegetation is mainly olive and lemon groves, palms and orange trees.

  • 01 Sep 19

    At Sea


  • 02 Sep 19

    Santorini, Greece

    Set around a Cyclades Island lagoon, Santorini’s colourful cliffs and cityscape are iconic, the sight of them is powerful enough to stick in anyone’s mind. Overlooking a 300m drop into the ocean, the island city attracts tourists all year round, and it’s no wonder why, with its cake-icing visuals and a rich history to explore.


  • 03 Sep 19

    Chania, Greece

    Wander through the fascinating layers of Chaniá's history with a visit to the Old Town. The large 16th century Venetian church, Aghios Frankiskos is an impressive site.

    A natural bay surrounded by mountains and forests. It has developed into one of the busiest ports in Greece.


  • 05 Sep 19

    Split, Croatia

    Split is the second largest city in Croatia. Split is a relatively easy city to get around for sightseeing, as many of the top sights are within easy walking distance of each other. This lively city is definitely worth a visit.


  • 06 Sep 19

    Disembark in Venice

    Disembark your ship and transfer to the airport for your flight to the UK.



  • Lake Garda

    Writers have sung Lake Garda's praises over the centuries. “The lake lies dim and milky,” DH Lawrence wrote, “the mountains are dark blue… the sky glistens… the light burns gold.” As you walk along the lake, it changes character, with Mediterranean-like settings of open-air cafes, pebbles beaches and quaint harbours, a contrasting landscape as fir and pine trees tumble down to olive and lemon groves.

  • Venice, Italy

    There’s simply no place like Venice: a city built on water incorporating no roads and home to over 250,000 citizens, despite its small size. Its compact, to say the least, narrow alleys leading to endless culinary treasures and the occasional tourist hotspot: St Mark’s Campanile or the Rialto Bridge, for instance. The magic of Venice’s streets is unmatchable, but a visit wouldn’t be complete without a relaxing gondola ride on the Grand Canal.

  • Verona Opera

    Verona Opera

    The Arena di Verona Festival is a summer festival of Opera, located in Verona, Italy. The first Operas were performed in 1913 in celebration of the centenary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi. The arena itself can hold 30,000 spectators and performances normally begin at dusk with the only light coming from the stage and by candlelight. Included in this tour are Tickets to the Performance "Carmen".

Your Ship

MSC Lirica

MSC Lirica

MSC Lirica is a cruise ship for passengers who prefer the Golden Age of Cruising. Gone are the glitzy interiors instead you will find rich wood, brass, marble and the restrained use of restful colours. Spend a little time in the Lirica Health Center and soon all your stress and strains will be soothed away.
