Is This Trip Right for You?

This moderately active trip covers a lot of ground most days. Expect up to three to four hours walking every touring day, where you could encounter some uneven surfaces, cobbled streets, stairs, and steep slopes. Some hiking may be required to access some sites. Small ship cruising offers a more intimate and personalized atmosphere. At the same time, onboard amenities are limited and functional. Cabins are typically compact with lower ceilings, while walkways are narrow, and stairs may be steep. Small ship cruising may not be suitable for some passengers with physical limitations
