This past July, my husband and two sons were fortunate enough to enjoy a delightful week in the Mediterranean and Adriatic with Azamara Cruises aboard their ship, the Quest. Only hosting 690 guests, the smaller size of this floating boutique hotel ensures up-close access to ports that other bigger ships do not have.

Bonjourno! The Sicily and Southern Italy with Trafalgar tour provided me with insights in to the Italian language, culture, history, food, and their beautiful amazing landscaping and coastline.
Our Italy with Trafalgar tour started with an evening orientation drive through the city to see St. Peter’s basilica in the Vatican City, an independent state with some of the world’s most extra-ordinary art and antiques. This day ended with a welcome reception where we had an opportunity to meet and greet our fellow travelers at a lovely, underground, carved rock restaurant.
