Take a vacation from Mediterranean summertime crowds and sweltering humidity during this 20-day autumn cruise to ports and sites throughout Italy, Greece, and Turkey via the Corinth Canal, wide enough only for small ships like ours. Follow Christopher Columbus’s outstretched hand atop Barcelona’s Columbus Monument near Las Ramblas Promenade, and set sail for Palma de Mallorca’s sunny beaches and medieval fortifications. Savor sweet, citrus gelato or try Stracciatella—a lemon gelato mixed with chocolate shavings—at an Amalfi gelateria just a bocce-ball toss from the sweeping stairway leading up to the Duomo di Amalfi above the town’s thriving piazza. Explore broken monuments in the Temple of elphi, a sacred space once considered the center of the ancient world.
