San Marino is the oldest republic in Europe, a landlocked city-state in the centre of Italy, and one of the smallest countries in the world. Pick an MSC Cruises excursion to this quirky tiny nation, situated on the slopes of Monte Titano. On tour, you’ll see the Church of San Francesco, founded in 1361 and enjoy a guided walk to the Piazza della Libertà for the changing of guards. Pause by the Rocca and the Basilica di San Marino, before appreciating the stunning scenery from Mount Titano’s summit. 
 
Ravenna is an excellent example of charming cities in Italy, immersed in a fascinating air of ancient times. The city is known as the mosaic capital of the world with mosaics created in the 5th and 6th century. Throughout the centuries, the city was influenced by the Romans and the Ostrogoths, giving Ravenna a unique architecture. Today, visitors can still admire the mosaic masters at work in their shops scattered around the historic centre.
 
If you love the world of Formula One, visit the incredible Ferrari Museum in Maranello on an MSC Cruises excursion. View a vast array of Ferrari models, as well as trophies, memorabilia, and photographs. You’ll immerse yourself in the car company’s journey from its 1939 beginnings to its present-day status as automotive superpower! Before you leave, visit the Ferrari Store to shop a multitude of merchandise.

    History, gastronomy and fashion

    A cruise to Italy is an emotional roller coaster. Rome is a tremendous city quite unlike any other, and in terms of historical sights outstrips everywhere else in the country by some way.
     
    Liguria, the small coastal province along the north-west coast, has long been known as the “Italian Riviera” and is accordingly crowded with sun-seekers for much of the summer.
    In Veneto the main focus of interest is, of course, Venice: a unique city, and every bit as beautiful as its reputation would suggest. Tuscany in central Italy represents perhaps the most commonly perceived image of the country, with its classic rolling countryside and the art-packed towns of Florence and Pisa.

    The south proper begins with the region of Campania. Its capital, Naples, is a unique, unforgettable city, the spiritual heart of the Italian south. Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, has underrated pleasures, too, notably the landscape of its Gargano peninsula and the souk-like qualities of its capital, Bari.

    As for Sicily, the island is really a place apart, with a wide mixture of attractions ranging from some of the finest preserved Hellenistic treasures in Europe, to a couple of Italy’s most appealing Mediterranean beach resorts in Taormina and Cefalù, not to mention some gorgeous upland scenery.
