August on Azamara means warm days in exotic ports, a salt water pool to laze in, meeting wonderful people and enjoying the company of people from all parts of the globe.
It was a working holiday with numerous enrichment lectures presented and several commentaries from the bridge as we sailed in and out of Venice during three cruises ( Aug 13-30).
Among the topics covered in Enrichment Lectures:
The Heart of Tuscany-Livorno, Florence and Pisa
Rome before the Romans-who were the Etruscans ?
The Many Faces of Dubrovnik
Sicilia! Italy in the Superlative
Malta: Capers and Caravaggio
Corfu the green cosmopolitan island
We visited 20 different ports including Barcelona, St. Tropez, Nice, Portofino, Livorno, Civitavecchia, Sorrento, Amalfi, Taormina, La Valleta, Kotor, Corfu, Dubrovnik, Venice, Zadar, Hvar, Kotor, Korcula and Koper .
Coming soon on my blog 50yearsinItaly, the full story, meanwhile here are a few photos .
