Food & Wine Trails is thrilled to announce our inaugural wine cruise with Francis Ford Coppola!

Don't miss this unique opportunity to travel to the roots of the Coppola family for a 10-day cruise around Italy's "boot" with Winemaker, Toni Bolkan.  Our cruise begins in Venice and ends in glitzy Monte Carlo, with eight different Italian ports-of-call in between.  Included in the itinerary is the port of Bari, which is not often visited by cruise ships, however the Sirena will spend a full day here.  The port of Bari is very near Bernalda - the birthplace and home to Agostino Coppola, grandfather of Francis and where you will also find Palazzo Margherita, a luxurious Italian boutique hotel owned by the Coppola family. 

Italy is the quintessential Mediterranean cruise destination, from the impeccable wines, to incredible cuisine, culturally-rich cities and breathtaking scenery.  Reserve your space now, before the cruise is sold out!
