Classical Mediterranean Cruise (Malta, Italy, Tunisia) | May 7 - 15, 2024

Sicily and Malta have possessed an almost mythical appeal ever since Homer and Virgil first extolled their virtues. Travel in the company of alumni and friends from May 7 – 15, 2024 on an itinerary that explores some of Europe’s most storied villages, resplendent shores, and prized remnants of bygone civilizations. From the classical perfection of Agrigento’s Roman relics to the ancient cliff-side village of Taormina, discover the timeless allure and cultural mélange of formidable nations that stood at the crossroads of the Mediterranean. 

This outstanding Southern Mediterranean itinerary cruises from Malta to Sicily along two of Europe’s most dramatic coastlines, through the fabled Strait of Messina and the Tyrrhenian and Mediterranean Seas while traveling aboard the state-of-the-art, five-star Le Bougainville.  En route, experience the rich history of Malta, the island nation where Saint Paul the Apostle was shipwrecked and the Order of the Knights of St. John, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Sir Walter Scott, and Queen Elizabeth II once called home. Discover Sicily’s storied town of Taormina in the shadow of Mount Etna; Agrigento’s unforgettable Valley of the Temples; the exotic blend of African and Arab cultures in Tunisia; the archeological wonder of Carthage; the age-old beauty of Palermo; and the majesty of Syracuse, once the most powerful city of the ancient Greek world and today an open-air museum of monumental antiquities.

Onboard lecturers will further illuminate these ancient ports and scenic landscapes. Please contact the CAA Travel Study Program office at (866) 325-8664 or at [email protected] for more details or request a reservation today!
