Day 1: Naples, Italy

The grand city of Naples (Pompeii) beckons with a vibrant waterfront. Within the bay stands Megaride Island, home of the Castel dell’Ovo. Legend has it that the poet Virgil housed a magical egg there that protects it, and the very city, from ruin. A jaunt through the city takes you through a blend of architecture and art. And Neapolitans agree you should take a walk through Via dei Tribunali, "Pizza Alley," for the best slice with signature charred dough. For a look into times past, make your way to Mount Vesuvius. Here you will find the surrounding ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
 

Day 2: Civitavecchia, Italy (Overnight)

Upon docking in Civitavecchia, you can stay on the ship and enjoy its amenities or embark on an adventure into the Eternal City. Civitavecchia is the main terminal for all cruises heading into Rome or the less-crowded, nearby Tarquinia. From there, a shuttle bus takes you to the Service Center of Largo della Pace, where you can embark on adventures through the Eternal City. Rome maintains its position in the world as a powerful influence in religion, politics, and art, as it is well known as the site for intellectual and artistic achievements in the past. From the iconic Roman Coliseum aboveground to the mysterious catacombs of the Capuchin Crypt below ground, the capital of Italy beckons the adventurous to discover its many secrets and stories. The city holds a certain cosmopolitan feel with countless rooftop bars that are a prime location for a sunset. 

Spend the night on the ship, allowing for a restful evening after a day of exploration, and take in the night views of the city onboard.

Whether continuing your Roman adventure or discovering the charm of Tarquinia, the day promises rich historical and cultural experiences.

Day 4: Capri, Italy

The island of Capri is the gem of the Bay of Naples. In Capri you can marvel at the whitewashed homes and villas, fragrant lemon trees and flower-filled courtyards. From the water, be sure to visit the Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto), which is only accessible by boat. Once inside the cave, you can marvel at the water’s sapphire color, which is caused by the light refraction from the hidden opening in the rock. Also from the water, see the Arco Naturale on the east coast of the island. Dating from the Paleolithic age, the limestone arch is the remains of a collapsed grotto.
 

Day 5: Porto Cervo, Italy

Experience la dolce vita on the Emerald Coast in Sardinia (Sardinia). Often regarded as the Italian Saint-Tropez, Porto Cervo is known for its luxury boutiques, exquisite restaurants and beautiful marina filled with sleek yachts. Begin your exploration at the Waterfront Costa Smeralda, the glamorous heart of the village, and the Porto Cervo Marina, which hosts some of the most important world regattas. For an unforgettable panorama, take a drive along Cugnana Gulf and the enchanting bay of Cala di Volpe. Take a dip in glorious beaches like Cala Granu or Romazzino, both boasting crystal-clear waters and soft white sand. After a refreshing swim, satiate your appetite with exquisite Sardinian cuisine.

Day 6: Bastia, France

Along the Ligurian Sea of Corsica’s Cap Corse Peninsula sits the charming commune of Bastia, (Corsica). Explore stunning scenes with your fellow adventurous spirits to discover a treasure of terraced vineyards, hidden beaches and nestled villages. Visiting yachts and local fishing boats alike find a harbor in the Old Port, where the bell towers of Saint-Jean-Baptiste church beckon from the skyline. Named for the 15th-century Genoese fortress that once protected the city, Bastia’s rich past calls out to curious minds for further exploration. As you and your fellow explorers discover the charms of the enchanting island of Corsica, stop at one of its famous markets. Filled with a variety of local delicacies like cheese, wine and charcuterie snacks, you will be taken on a journey through the flavors and cuisine cultures of France. .

Day 7: 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 rises above the canal waters as a sight to behold. The long and storied history of Lucca call 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 8: Portofino, Italy

The sea along the Italian Riviera is particularly peaceful, as it gently laps the shore. Snuggled in the Ligurian Coast is the village of Portofino, named after dolphins, Portus Delphini, that frolicked in these waters. The Piazza Martiri Dell’Olivetta is the main square of Portofino at the town’s center. Take a stroll along the row of beautiful multicolored buildings and a number of chic cafes and restaurants. Along the way, grab yourself an Italian gelato or sit down and enjoy a pesto dish before continuing your leisure walk toward the harbor. Not far from the coast, you will find beautiful hidden islands, such as San Fruttuoso and Santa Margherita.
 

Day 9: Nice, France (Overnight)

Upon docking in Nice, guests have the option to either explore the city or relax on the ship. Nice rises from the pebbled coast to lush hills, with its heart located between the old port city and the Aeroport de Côte d’Azur. Enjoy a leisurely jaunt on the Promenade des Anglais along the Mediterranean Sea to take in the breathtaking views. Explore the Old Port in Vieux Nice, a colorful and bustling area with various markets. Wander through narrow streets, admire colorful architecture, and discover picturesque piazzas.

Day 11: Saint-Tropez, France

The jewel in the heart of the spectacular Côte d’Azur, Saint-Tropez was a sleepy seaside village with a rich maritime history that achieved celebrity beginning in the 1960s. Explore the hexagon shaped Citadelle that once served as the defender of the gulf. The castle contains a maritime museum, and the grounds provide breathtaking views of the Côte d’Azur. La Musée de l’Annonciade is a real treat for art lovers and located just beyond the Quai de l’Epi pier. This 16th-century chapel features a small but powerful collection of paintings by Derain, Signac, and other artists.
 

Day 12: Marseilles, France

As your ship docks mere steps away from Old Marseille (Aix-en-Provence), its crowning jewel, Notre-Dame de la Gard Basilica, reaches into the sky to greet you. Pedal to Vieux Port, the city’s natural harbor, and take in the arts scene, shops and a traditional Marseillaise lunch, such as the classic bouillabaisse, a soup made with five different kinds of fish. Le Panier neighborhood, Marseilles’ oldest district, offers the perfect way to get lost in genuine culture. Meanwhile, in the nearby Aix-en-Provence, discover the picturesque Le Cours Mirabeau. Wander until you find the Atelier Cézanne, the art studio where famous post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne created most of his works.

Port-Vendres is a charming seaside town on the Côte Vermeille. From the moment you arrive in its kaleidoscopic port, you are enveloped in French history. Mere steps from the promenade you can witness Fort Fanal, one of the 12 UNESCO-listed Fortifications of Vauban. Explore another World Heritage Site in Carcassonne. Seen from the hilltop it is straight out of a fairy-tale with breathtaking turrets, churches and fortifications. Up close, the medieval city is even more impressive, with foundations dating to the late Roman period and its cathedral from the 11th century.

Day 14: Mahon, Spain

The capital of the Spanish island of Menorca, Mahón (or Maó), is well-known for its British-style Georgian houses and its sheltered natural harbor. The best way to appreciate the land’s beauty is by navigating it on a small vessel. When visiting Mahón, considered the birthplace of salsa mahonesa (better known as mayonnaise), you must sample the local fare. From fresh seafood to refreshing gin to delectable cheeses, it’s a foodie’s paradise. Support local artisans by shopping for the island’s famous Menorquinas or Avarcas, a specialty shoe once favored among the peasants for keeping their feet cool now turned into a fashion statement.

Day 15: Palma de Mallorca, Spain

You know you have arrived in Palma de Mallorca, a major city of the Balearics of Spain, when you are met with majestic limestone cliffs plunging into glimmering blue water. On shore, its rich history is evident in its wonderful buildings, castles, and cathedrals. Take in the landmark Gothic cathedral, La Seu, with its enormous rose window and its wrought-iron canopy over the main altar designed by famed Spanish architect Antonio Gaudí.
