Windstar Cruises announced Wednesday that it has teamed up with sister brand VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations to provide land and sea tours throughout Italy.

The new partnership has been dubbed The Italy Tour & Cruise program. It will provide cruise passengers the opportunity to explore the towns, countryside and mountains of Italy via VBT’s walking and bike tours before eventually climbing aboard the ship and seeing Italy from the sea.

The Italy Tour & Cruise program offers several intriguing itineraries throughout the year, including the Amalfi Coast and Capri Walking Tours on April 24, the Tuscan Coast Bike Tour along the Strada del Vino on May 25, the Puglia: Italy's Undiscovered Coast biking tour along the coastal roads of Puglia on June 6 and the Italy: The Quiet Pathways of Tuscany walking tour on June 11.

In addition to the once-in-a-lifetime experiences, passengers will receive special discounts when they book a VBT tour and the corresponding Windstar cruise. The offers for those who qualify include 15 percent off cruise fare, two free nights in Rome before the voyage and complimentary transfers to the vessel.

Windstar also utilized an expanded partnership with sister companies AEG and Ritz Carlton to promote its Rising Stars Travel Agent Challenge. Winners of the travel agent competition were treated to tickets to the 2015 Emmy Awards, accommodations at a Ritz Carlton hotel and free air fare, dining and transfers to the airport.
