Travel to Rome and take in its legions of ancient sites including the Roman Forum, Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, and Michelangelo's breathtaking frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.
The next stop is Amalfi, an enchanting coastal town. Tour the Duomo di Sant’Andrea and its hidden Cloister of Paradise. Then, sail to Messina and explore the Piazza del Duomo, featuring one of the world's largest astronomical clocks.
