Quintessential Collection Included Cruise Package


Created specially for like-minded travellers. 

Join Mediterranean food expert Nancy Harmon Jenkins and Italian wine expert Barbara D’Agapiti on this very special exploration of the foods and wines of Southern Italy and Sicily.

Food—its cultivation, preparation, and consumption—has always been central to the Italian way of life. This one-of-a-kind program is an extraordinary opportunity both to study and to experience the various roles food and wine play in our lives and its relation to physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Immerse yourself in the bounty of Southern Italy and Sicily’s regional cuisines as we sample the pastas of Syracuse and the wines of Mt. Etna, the artisanal meats and cheese of Calabriamozzarella from Agropoli, and pizza from Naples. Taking advantage of rich volcanic soils and a variety of splendid grapes, wonderful reds and whites and sparkling wines characteristic of each region abound. We will taste them all.

A sure highlight of our cruise will be an exclusive private dinner at the Michelin-starred Palazzo Petrucci in Naples. The restaurant overlooks the Gulf of Naples with views of Capri, the Sorrentine Peninsula, and Vesuvius. During sunset, sip Italian sparkling wine and sample a variety of finger foods. The chef and sommeliers will talk about local foods and wines before a five-course tasting menu, including wine pairings. Relax and enjoy a hearty dose of La Dolce Vita!

In addition to these culinary-tailored activities, we will have the opportunity to see the ruins of the ancient Greeks at Syracuse, Taormina, and Paestum; to discover the iconic Roman sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum; and to discover inviting medieval towns, including Noto and Pizzo. Seldom is there such an opportunity to enjoy such a rich feast.
