Day by day itinerary
Fly to Barcelona and take your included shared transfer to the ship.
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan masterpiece. With a history rich in art and architecture, medieval, Gothic, and modern influences can be seen all over the city. Start at the waterfront and stroll up the shady, tree-lined Las Ramblas boulevard and discover some of the city's best shopping and bustling cafes.
When you travel to Port-Vendres, be prepared for your imagination to kick into over-drive. You could head to Cadaqués, a charming town that was once home to the artist Salvador Dali. Be sure to vist his world-famous museum while you're there. Or, simply hang out in Port-Vendres and enjoy the local sights and a meal of fresh seafood paired with the region’s renowned Collioure wines.
Cassis is set between the natural splendor of the calanques, long narrow inlets in the towering white limestone cliffs, and majestic Cap Canaille. It is a photogenic little town, with a harbor promenade lined by pastel houses on one side and bobbing wooden fishing boats on the other. For full immersion, find a seaside table and dive into a bowl of bouillabaisse, a dish the town is famous for.
2,600 years of history come to life in the magnificent port of Marseille. The Musée des Civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée is filled to the brim with insight on the culture of this wonderful region and well worth a visit. From here, explore La Panier for souvenirs to remind you of your journey. Cap off your day with a glass of pastis—an alcoholic beverage that is a local favorite!
You don’t need luck on your side to have an unforgettable time in Monte Carlo! Home to the legendary Grand Casino and the Monaco Grand Prix—one of the world’s most prestigious sporting events—Monte Carlo lives up to its reputation in every way. Drive the Monaco Grand Prix route in a performance vehicle, visit the Grand Casino, or roll the dice and explore the breathtaking beauty of the city.
The port city of Livorno has many charms of its own: the canals of La Venezia Nuova (New Venice), which date back to the Medici era, the Mercato Centrale, and the chessboard-style Terrazza Mascagni promenade, to name a few. But Livorno is also the gateway to the magnificent art and architecture, palaces, churches and museums of Florence, as well as Pisa’s famous leaning tower. Decisions, decisions!
