The jet-set life and a lifestyle that dates back a thousand years are combined on a Mediterranean cruise itinerary that leads from the port for the Eternal City, Rome, to the glittering Côte d’Azur. From the Italian capital, you’ll cruise on board your luxurious small ship first to the island of Elba, where Napoleon was first exiled. Continue on to Porto Venere, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its fabulous scenery and ancient traditions, and Livorno, jumping-off point for the “Cradle of the Renaissance,” Florence. Portofino, a pastel fishing village on the Italian Riviera, is next, before an overnight call on Monte Carlo lets you experience the glamour of the home of the famous Grand Casino. Then, view two sides of France’s Côte d’Azur, as you contrast Villefranche, a pretty resort town, with Nice, the “Queen of the Côte d’Azur” and the second-largest city in France. Don’t miss this dazzling overview of one of the most coveted regions in the world!

The heart of the ancient Roman empire and capital of modern Italy, Rome is one of the world’s great cultural centers, and an abundance of monuments, cathedrals, artistic masterpieces, and more reflect the city’s rich ancient, medieval, and Renaissance history. You’ll embark Tere Moana in the nearby port city of Civitavecchia and enjoy time to settle into your stateroom before the ship sets sail this evening.

Porto Venere, Italy

Overlooking the Gulf of Poets in the northwestern Italian province of Liguria, Porto Venere was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, together with the nearby Cinque Terre villages, for its combination of scenic beauty and a traditional way of life that dates back 1,000 years. Admire the pastel-colored homes that line the picturesque waterfront, and narrow stairways and cobbled lanes lined with shops that radiate out from the waterfront. Visit the 12th-century Chiesa di San Lorenzo church and the 16th-century Castello Dorio, a fortified Genoese castle with manicured gardens and stunning views. Venture to Byron’s Grotto, where Lord Byron swam across the gulf to Lerici to visit his friend and fellow poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, in 1822. Or follow one of several hiking trails that lead out from the town.

Ruled by the Grimaldi family since 1297, with only brief interruptions, the Principality of Monaco is the world’s second-smallest country (after the Vatican). Sandwiched between mountains and the sea, Monte Carlo is a district of the country and home of the famous Grand Casino. Monte Carlo’s steep and winding streets have been featured in numerous films, including Alfred Hitchcock’s “To Catch a Thief” starring Grace Kelly, who would become Princess Grace of Monaco upon her marriage to Rainier III in 1956. Besides the casino, attractions of this glamorous district include numerous museums, churches, monuments, and gardens. Here, too, The Moana stays overnight, allowing you to experience Monte Carlo at its liveliest: after dark.
