Brief Itinerary:

Port Highlights:

Barcelona’s seaside beauty, sprawling beaches, eclectic architecture, world-class tapas and Tempranillo are all reasons to fall in love with the city of Gaudí. Indeed, the treasures here are many and diverse, captivating travelers and experts alike. In fact, nine important sites in the city, seven designed by the famed architect himself, have earned the acclaim of UNESCO.

Overnight in the vibrant town of Valencia. Start with a visit to The City of Arts and Sciences on the former riverbed of the River Turia or take a stroll through the largest aquarium in Europe, The Oceanogràfic. Marvel at the 15th-century architecture of Old Town and modern art installations at the Valencian Institute of Modern Art. Enjoy a dish of authentic Valencian paella with a cool glass of sangría before setting out to discover the city’s exhilarating nightlife.

Palma de Mallorca is the capital and largest city of the Balearic Islands. Mallorca, known as the “Island of Tranquility,” has a landscape as varied as its history. Founded by the Romans, later settled by the Arabs, then conquered by the Spanish, the island is host to all sorts of architectural wonders.

Visit the Old City to see the Arab Baths or travel to the old fishing village on the edge of town to view the ancient windmills of Es Jonquet. Marvel at La Seu, the cathedral built on the site of a Moorish mosque and boasting the highest nave of all Gothic cathedrals, while you saunter along the Parc de la Mer.

Overnight on the Côte d’Azur in Monte Carlo, capital of Monaco, the world’s second-smallest country. Stroll along the yacht-lined harbor and visit the Casino de Monte Carlo, the Prince’s Palace, and Saint Nicholas Cathedral where Grace Kelly is buried.

Olbia, an important transportation hub on the northeast side of the island of Sardinia, has a storied past. Bronze Age ruins of the long-lost Nuraghic people sit alongside Roman and medieval artifacts.

In town, shop for handmade textiles and jewelry and enjoy the delightful local cuisine. Outside the city, the dramatic landscapes of Costa Smeralda with its superb beaches, secluded grottoes, staggering cliffs, and deep oak forests wait to be discovered.

Sorrento, burgeoning with UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a history and culture that stretches all the way back to the 11th century B.C., is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations of the Campania region. Its dramatic scenery and landscapes make this romantic port a destination everyone should experience.

During your visit, plan a trip to the celebrated Italian island of Capri; ride a boat to the legendary home of the Sirens in Positano; or tour the archaeological wonders of Pompeii, Torre Annunziata, and the 4th century B.C. city of Herculaneum.

Venture through Civitavecchia, noted for its fine seafood and beautiful monuments. Then, travel to the Eternal City of Rome, with more than 2,500 years of history and ancient landmarks that will leave you with memories for a lifetime.
