Many of us dream of a Mediterranean escape; getting lost in the culture of Italy, savouring the elegance of southern France or unwinding on the sands of Spain. So the chance to do it all, in enviable style, is priceless. Combining a cruise with Regent Seven Seas with a thrilling road tour with Ferrari, we have crafted this exceptional itinerary, where you can immerse yourself in the highlights of the Mediterranean’s most sought after spots on a luxurious cruise, before experience the thrill of sweeping across the Italian landscape in the country’s most prestigious sports car.

Spending your first night in Rome, warm up for the discoveries waiting ahead with a taste of the fabulous ‘Eternal City’, before embarking on your sea voyage along the coast. Part of Regent’s 25th Anniversary celebrations, this commemorative cruise voyage features an exclusive galley lunch and specialised programming, plus wine and cocktail tastings. Guests will also benefit from the Smithsonian Collection of enriching interactive lectures, including guest speaker, archaeologist David Price Williams. During your cruise, you will have the chances to marvel at the wonders of Florence or Pisa, admire the pretty waterfront of Portofino, bask in the beauty of St Tropez and Marseille, witness the spectacular city of Barcelona and take it easy on the world-famous beaches of Ibiza.

For the second part of your journey, it’s back to land, where you will pick up your Ferrari to hit the road in style. In partnership with Red Travel, all of your needs will be taken care of as you traverse scenic routes through Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany, led by your personal Tour Director, who will give you a full briefing on the car’s controls and will be in radio contact for the duration of your tour. With your luggage transported separately, you will spend two nights at luxurious five-star hotels, boasting sumptuous spas and fine-dining restaurants, as you sweep across the countryside, making your way from medieval villages to picturesque valleys and vineyards.

Or follow your nose into stylish cafés, where twirling baristas brew the finest coffee.

Delve back to ancient times touring the city’s dazzling treasures. The amazingly preserved temple of the Pantheon and also the Colosseum of the great Roman Empire. Crumbling catacombs and age-old churches. St Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, a glorious example of Renaissance design.

Iconic artists have left their mark across the city. Paintings by Caravaggio. Frescoes by Raphael. Fountains by Bernini. Michelangelo’s astonishing works in the Sistine Chapel. Baroque façades, Byzantine mosaics and so much more.

Before you go, sit and reflect atop the Spanish Steps and cherish the scene. Then toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to make sure you’ll return to this extraordinary city another day.

6

Orvieto or Siena

+

Following your Tour Director, weave your way on a scenic route through picturesque towns and villages, with charming Tuscan character, making your way to Orvieto. Dating back to before the Roman Empire, this unusual city stood strong against invasion thanks to its position on a steep chunk of volcanic rock, giving it a striking appearance that surely even concerned Julius Caesar himself! Take your time to admire the intricately adorned cathedral, dating back to 1290, gleaming with mosaic tiles, stained glass and frescoes, or stop to see the impressive St. Patrick’s Well, plunging one-hundred-and-seventy-five feet down – a worthy feat of engineering!

Alternatively, continue past Orvieto to Siena, Italy’s finest Medieval city, famous for its hosting of the Palio horse race, beautifully preserved gothic architecture and UNESCO-listed buildings. Boasting another spectacular cathedral, built from white marble and housing invaluable treasures by the likes of Michelangelo, Pisano and Donatello, Siena is a fabulous addition to your itinerary.
