Day 1: Civitavecchia, Italy | Embark

Civitavecchia (Rome) serves as the primary port for cruises bound for Rome or the quieter Tarquinia nearby. A shuttle transports you to Largo della Pace Service Center, your gateway to Rome's eternal allure. Rome, a global hub of religion, politics, and art, boasts iconic landmarks like the Roman Coliseum and the secretive Capuchin Crypt catacombs. Its cosmopolitan vibe extends to rooftop bars offering stunning sunset views. For a detour, Tarquinia presents historical gems like the Monterozzi Necropolis, a UNESCO site, and an authentic Italian village ambiance.

Day 2: Portofino, Italy

Tranquil waves grace the Italian Riviera, gently caressing its shores. Nestled on the Ligurian Coast lies Portofino, its name derived from the playful dolphins that frolicked in these waters. , Portus Delphini. Explore the heart of Portofino at Piazza Martiri Dell’Olivetta, surrounded by vibrant buildings and charming cafes. Indulge in Italian delicacies like gelato and pesto as you meander towards the harbor, passing by hidden gems like San Fruttuoso and Santa Margherita islands.

Day 3: Livorno, Italy

From the grandeur of the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the charming canals of La Venezia Nuova (New Venice), which date back to the Medici era, the Italian city of Florence contains much to explore. The port city of Livorno’s colorful building facades rise above the canal waters as a sight to behold. The long and storied history of Lucca calls out to curious explorers seeking a mentally stimulating adventure. Cathedrals, art, culture, food, these iconic Italian cities have it all, and Livorno acts as the hub to make your way to each.
 

Day 4: San Remo, Italy

To the very west of the idyllic Italian Riviera is the enchanting town of San Remo, known worldwide for its music festival and blooms. It’s often referred to as the City of Flowers for its cultivation and export of long-stemmed roses, carnations, and camellias, as well as olives and lemons. At the heart of town, explore the 17th-century Santa Tecla Fort. Contrasting the military architecture is an alluring Art Nouveau building that houses the San Remo casino. Spend time at Piazza Cassini and pop in the church of Saint Stephen, where Jesuit brothers devoted themselves to embellish it with incredible frescoes and gold accents.

Day 5: Menton, France

The magic of the French Riviera comes alive in Menton. Bordering close to Italy, this village encompasses both cultures beautifully. Famous for its lemons, the groves dot Menton’s parks, hillsides, and some streets. Stop in any of the local shops for lemon-scented and infused products. Stroll through the Old Quarter, where medieval structures remind you the city was founded by pirates. Steep steps lead up to Baroque architecture and grand villas, showcasing its rich history. With pebbly beaches closer to the French side and sandy shores closer to the Italian border, there are various waterfronts, such as Plage des Sablettes, Rondelli or Fossan.

Day 6: Cassis, France

The small fishing village of Cassis  (Aix-En-Provence), near Marseille, traces its roots back over 2,500 years. The town is well known for its inlets, small beaches, seafood, and white wine. Relax and drink in the amazing scenery of pastel-colored houses, limestone cliffs, vineyards, and fig and olive trees. Traditional sailboats line the water’s edge and cafe terraces spill out onto the wide pavement. On sunny days, it’s a hub of activity and the perfect place to park up, enjoy a glass of wine, and people-watch. Your experience in this picturesque region would not be complete without a swim in Plage de la Grande Mer.

Day 7: At Sea

Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore
 

Day 8: Barcelona, Spain | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
The capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona, lives up to its reputation as a center of grand architecture and inspiring art.

A short way up La Rambla you’ll come across La Boqueria, one of Europe’s largest and most famous food markets, filled with fruits, pastries, and many tasty samples of local fare.
