Itinerary

Day 1: Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona, the most-visited city in Spain, showcases a captivating cultural tapestry as the capital of Catalonia. This urban landscape weaves together a 2,000-year-old blend of sun-kissed beaches, avant-garde architecture, and a globally acclaimed dining and drinking scene. The modernist influence of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí is evident throughout the city, complemented by medieval treasures scattered across historic squares in the Gothic Quarter. Lose yourself in the enchanting gardens of Park Güell or partake in a chef-led Catalan cooking class. Explore art collections dedicated to Picasso and Miró, or ascend Montjuïc Hill via cable car for panoramic views of the cityscape.

Day 2: Palma de Majorca, Spain

Mallorca, the Spanish island renowned for its towering mountains and dramatic cliffs overlooking crystalline blue waters, conceals a true treasure in its capital, Palma de Mallorca. This largest city on the island boasts charming historic streets, Gothic castles, and a plethora of gastronomic delights. When cruising to Palma de Mallorca, don't miss the unique Palma Cathedral, where 14th-century Gothic spires on the exterior contrast with the modernist interior designed by Gaudi in the early 1900s. Explore the circular courtyard and Arab-inspired arches of Castell de Bellver, surrounded by the invigorating scent of miles of pine forest, or opt for a bike rental and pedal east to Palma Beach, where pristine white sands and clear waves await.

Day 3: Cruising

At sea.

Day 4: Florence/ Pisa (La Spezia), Italy

The northern Italian port city of La Spezia, situated on the border of Liguria and Tuscany, serves as an excellent gateway to two of Italy's most renowned cities: Pisa and Florence. A mere one-hour journey by car or train takes you to Pisa, where you can explore the white-stone arches of the city's iconic leaning tower and its counterpart, the Pisa Cathedral. Alternatively, a two-hour train ride transports you to Florence, where you can ascend to the summit of the renowned Duomo, the Italian Gothic Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral, for breathtaking 360-degree views of the city. Visit Florence during your cruise to amble through the San Lorenzo market with an espresso in hand, immersing yourself in the scents of local spices and truffles while enjoying some people-watching.

Day 5: Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

Boasting 28 centuries of illustrious history, Rome stands out as the ultimate destination for unparalleled adventures. The city that ignited the world's largest empire remains vibrant today, offering a blend of ancient ruins, internationally acclaimed art, and a lively street culture. In Rome, you can embrace la dolce vita, evoking the splendor of Ancient Rome while savoring forkfuls of pasta in a charming trattoria. Explore the city on a three-wheeled Ape Calessino, passing by centuries-old basilicas, or marvel at masterpieces by Italian artists in Villa Borghese. Whether drawn to the spiritual ambiance of Vatican City, the enchanting allure of Trastevere's backstreets, or the embattled legacy of the Colosseum—The Eternal City presents endless opportunities for exploration.

Day 6: Naples (Capri), Italy

Defined by the towering Mount Vesuvius, Naples is a vibrant Italian city overflowing with charm. Immerse yourself in its opulent neoclassical architecture, exemplified by sites like Gesu Nuovo Church, boasting a lavish interior adorned with intricate frescoes, statues, and gold inlay. Delve into history at the San Gennaro catacombs, where Naples' inaugural bishops found their resting place in the second century A.D. Stroll along the Miglio Sacro ("Holy Mile") and leisurely explore the cafes and shops of the Sanita district, sipping on a zuccherato (sweetened espresso). Opt for a Naples cruise and embark on a short bus ride to the base of Mount Vesuvius— a straightforward 20- to 30-minute hike leads to the summit— followed by a tour of the Pompeii ruins.

Day 7: Cruising

Day at sea.

Day 8: Barcelona, Spain
