Day 1: Barcelona, Spain | Embark

Barcelona revels in contrasts. Many enthuse over the beautiful elegant squares and boulevards, while others look for medieval romance in the Gothic quarter. Some love the artistic treasures in the Picasso Museum or the Joan Miró Foundation, but for most people, Barcelona is the capital of Catalan Art Nouveau and its glory is epitomized in the spectacular Palau de la Música. At every turn, you encounter the playfully opulent creations of architect Antonio Gaudi. His exuberant fantasies are evident in the numerous houses, idiosyncratic parks and the famous uncompleted Sagrada Familia cathedral which he created.

Day 2: Collioure, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This small town lies on the French Mediterranean coast, just north of the border with Spain. Explore the historic treasures of this commune: the local art museum houses works by Henri Matisse, and the Church of Notre-Dame-des-Anges, was built around a lighthouse dating to the 17th-century. Or simply enjoy the stunning views from this quaint seaside town. 

Day 3: Sète, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This port city in the French region of Occitanie offers white sandy beaches, sparkling Mediterranean views, and biodiverse lagoons. Take the time to explore this charming and historic city. 

Day 4: La Ciotat, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
La Ciotat is a town on France’s Mediterranean coast. At its southern tip, the Parc du Mugel botanical garden encompasses tropical plants, pebble beaches and play areas. The grand Musée Ciotaden, amid the cafes and bars of the regenerated Old Port area, features exhibitions on the town’s shipbuilding history and the invention of the game of pétanque. Just north is the Eden Theater, the world's oldest operating cinema

Day 5: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy this day offshore, relaxing and taking in the smell of the fresh ocean breeze up on deck.

Day 6: Portofino, Italy

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Portofino has a prominent position on a peninsula on the Italian Riviera and, since the 1950s, has developed into an elegant marina. The "dolce vita" seems to have been born here. You can unwind in classy bars and cafés in front of beautifully restored facades, browse for treasures in the backstreets, and observe the comings and goings on the port's promenade. At first glance, Portofino is a picturesque fishing village. However, you soon notice that it is also a sophisticated retreat for exclusive megayachts, as well as a great hideaway for anyone who knows how to enjoy the charming and stylish traditional atmosphere.

Day 7: Menton France

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Menton is a town on the French Riviera in southeast France. It’s known for beaches and gardens such as the Serre de la Madone garden, showcasing rare plants. East, the hilly, medieval old town is home to Basilique Saint-Michel, with its 18th-century bell tower, and the ornate facade of La Chapelle des Pénitents-Blancs. Nearby, the Musée Jean Cocteau collection Séverin Wunderman displays works by poet Jean Cocteau.

Day 8: Nice, France | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Nice lies in one of the world's most lavishly endowed natural landscapes. The sea glows azure and the mountains in the background rise picturesquely up into the sky. Castle Hill gives you a fantastic view over the rambling old town - a labyrinth of alleyways with Baroque churches, pastel-colored houses, and red-tiled roofs. The Promenade des Anglais, a sophisticated, five-kilometer- (3 miles)long walkway along the magnificent Baie des Anges and its long beach, lies at the heart of the elegant new town, with its splendid palaces and aristocratic hotels in the Belle-Époque and Art Deco styles.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
