Taking a Mediterranean cruise to Italy is popular for summer Italy vacations and can be easily combined with Avventure Bellissime’s Italy vacation packages and Italy tours in destination cities like Florence, Rome, Naples, and Venice.

As a country, Italy has boasted busy ports for hundreds of years - more recently of course the big draw as much for tourism as for shipping of commercial goods.

While Italy draws several million visitors annually throughout the year, the peak tourism months are from March through September. Our summers are hot, which makes the opportunity to travel on the ocean very appealing for travellers from Europe, the United Kingdom, and North America.

There are different ways to structure Italy vacations and tours with Avventure Bellissime to complement your cruise holiday.

We specialize in pre- and post-cruise Italy Vacations & Tours. These are ideal packages for anyone who is going to be taking a cruise to Italy or who has booked passage on a cruise that departs from an Italian port.

There are several that we have designed that can start or finish in these ports:

Venice - travel and small group tours in Florence & Rome

Civitavecchia - travel and small group tours in Florence and Rome

Venice - travel and small group tours in Milan and Lake Como

Civitavecchia - travel to Sorrento and small group tours in Rome

Avventure Bellissime tours are arranged with licensed, professional guides who are fluent in English. They expertly escort travellers to see the sights of key destination cities, interpreting not just the language but also the culture, history, and geography of our beautiful nation.

Each city has rich treasures to encounter and historical tales to be brought to life, from the perfection of Michelangelo’s David in Florence or the secrets of the Colosseum & Ancient Rome to the thousands of years of fine artwork preserved within the walls of the Vatican & Sistine Chapel.

The other option for cruise travellers is to work with us at Avventure Bellissime to create tailor-made pre- or post-cruise Italy tours and Italy vacations. We operate more than 200 different tours in Italy and have the experience and expertise to design personalized tour packages to work with your cruise ship itinerary.

If you have a stop at the port of Livorno and you’ve always dreamed of exploring the spectacular vineyards in Tuscany, consider our private Chianti wine and hilltown cruise ship excursion. Our local expert driver guide will pick you up directly from your cruise ship in an air-conditioned Mercedes vehicle for a day of tasting local wines as you visit small hill towns. This is an off-the-beaten-track tour that takes you along scenic back roads through small villages that are centuries old. You’ll visit the charming market town Greve, which features an arcaded piazza with several wine bars known as Enotecas. As with many of our private and small group tours, we are always happy to personalize any of our excursions if there are additional stops or features you would like to add on - provided of course there is adequate time to get you back to your cruise ship!
