Highlights of this cruise:

Formerly a sleepy Spanish city, Barcelona has recently been reborn as an eclectic fusion of the modern and medieval. This coastal city exudes European charm and welcomes multitudes of travelers every year. It’s a major destination with must-see architectural gems that date back some 2,000 years. You’ll encounter fascinating examples from the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, the Modern masters like Gaudî, and many Cataluñian greats. Outstanding art museums can be found throughout the city, proudly displaying the works of world-renowned artists and countrymen, including Goya, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalî, and Joan Miró. For a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city center, venture to the awaiting Mediterranean Sea and all the seaside has to offer. Maybe a brisk hike in the nearby forest covered Collserola Hills or the hilltop in Montjuïc with its botanical gardens is the perfect recharge for a rollicking evening in one of the premier party capitals of the world. Round out your cruise to Barcelona dining at a tapas bar and savor a variety of delicious small dishes to share—from traditional Spanish to the more innovative.

From Cádiz you can easily get to Seville, exploring the old town with its quaint Moorish feel as well as its impressive monuments, pretty parks and lovely architecture. Along the way, restore your energy at any of the mouth-watering tapas bars offering some of the country’s finest seafood and typical Andalusian cuisine.

The great Rock of Gibraltar is a sight to behold. Made of limestone, it towers 1,400 feet above the mouth of the majestic Mediterranean Sea and is surrounded by beautiful countryside and a nature reserve.

On your voyage through the Mediterranean, you'll discover that Sète is a real catch! A port alive with the sights and sounds of the largest fishing fleet on France's southern coast offers up a true Mediterranean experience untouched by large commercial developments. Climb Mont St-Clair for sweeping panoramic views of Thau Lagoon or wind your way through a network of canals that will make you swear you might be in Venice. Sète sits on the Mediterranean terminus of the ambitious Canal du Midi, a pathway built in the late 1600s that allowed boat travel between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. The Old Port, with its canals and bridges, is about as unique as anywhere you could travel in France. If you want to go museum-hopping on your Sète cruise, visit the Museé Paul Valéry which was dedicated to the poet, essayist, and philosopher of its namesake. This fascinating place encompasses everything from the city’s history to fine art and includes all the results of the area’s traditional water jousting events since 1666. Resting on a cliff top overlooking the blue waters of the bay is the Cimetière Marin, the site where Valéry is interred and a place with its own sullen beauty. After you’ve built up an appetite getting to know Sète, indulge in the excellent seafood of which the city is famous for due to it being the home port of the largest working fishing fleet anywhere on France’s Mediterranean coast.

On the West coast of Corsica—southwest of Italy and southeast of France—lies Ajaccio, the island’s largest town. Replete with all the charm and sophistication one would expect of a French Mediterranean resort—palm trees, sandy beaches, bountiful shopping, beautiful marina and colorful cafes, bars and bistros—you would not be amiss to liken Ajaccio to the
more well-known South-of-France hotspots, such as the Cote d'Azur, Cap d'Antibes or Marseille.

A great place to start your investigation of Ajaccio on your Corsica cruise is to stroll down to the Maison Napoleon, the eponymous birthplace of the iconic French military leader, and the nearby cathedral where he was christened. Famed for being Napoleon Bonaparte's birthplace, Ajaccio tips its hat to its most famous and storied resident throughout town, from his
childhood home to seafront statues, museums, and street names. Take a scenic tour to the Austerlitz Square, Iles Sanguinaires viewpoint and the narrow, picturesque streets of old Ajaccio.

Sample some of the local fresh market’s delights for in-season delicacies, pastries and the fresh fish, vegetables, cheeses, and Corsican wines. Dining in town is essentially a French experience with a bit of Italian tossed in. Be sure to try the island’s popular pork charcuterie and fritelli, the doughnut made with chestnut flowers.

Civitavecchia was settled in 108 A.D. by the Emperor Trajan and has since served faithfully as a gateway to Rome, the capital of Italy. Once the center of the Ancient World from which emperors ruled over nearly all of western civilization, Rome is still a cultural mecca. Only a few cities in the world can boast such a well-preserved level of architecture, art, and religious iconography. There’s an enormous wealth of culture and history to discover on a cruise to Rome. Visit the ancient halls of the 50,000-seat Colosseum, gaze upon the ceilings of Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, and stroll the Capitoline Museum. Roman culinary prowess is well respected and beloved the world over. Experience authentic pizza, hearty bowls of fresh pasta, excellent cheeses, wines, seafood, and delightful desserts like tiramisu and gelato at family-run trattorias that have been preparing these traditional dishes for centuries. Walk the cobblestoned piazzas making your way to narrow side streets where you’re sure to find craftsman shops and beautiful boutiques filled with gorgeous handmade accessories and homewares for keepsakes and souvenirs.
