At a Glance

Buon giorno (good morning)! As the sun rises, so do you and your fellow adventurers. It’s going to be another spectacular day in Italy on board the Aegean Odyssey. Cast off on Road Scholar’s inaugural season aboard our first-ever floating campus as you fall in love with one of Europe’s most romantic countries. Sail from the canals of Venice to the architecture of Naples to the antiquity of Genoa. Unlike most cruise ships that are briefly in port, you’ll have overnight stays in many locations, giving you plenty of opportunity for deeper exploration. Indulge in a little vita all’italiana (life, Italian style) on our favorite ship!
Activity Level
On Your Feet
This program offers two activity levels to choose from: one that has less walking and fewer stairs and another at a more active pace.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Explore such famed sites as the Isle of Capri, Mount Vesuvius and Elba Island, where Napoleon was notoriously exiled in the 1800s.
  • Experience authentic local life and time-honored treasures during expert-led field trips ashore, with varied Activity Levels so you can learn at your own pace.
  • Sail exclusively with ship mates who are all Road Scholar participants, like-minded travelers who are as dedicated to learning as you are.

General Notes

We’ll have up to 350 Road Scholar participants on the ship, divided into groups of 35 for shore excursions. Please note roommate matching is available in categories F, H and L.
