Get some stretches in, it’s time to go island hopping around the Mediterranean! Beginning in beautiful, bustling Barcelona we set sail for Ibiza—home to legendary nightlife. Soak up some sun on the beach or take a Relax Local yoga excursion to prep for a night on the town, thanks to our overnight in port.
Your first view of Mallorca is breathtaking: Bellver Castle overlooking the bay and the famed Gothic cathedral standing out against the horizon with the ancient Almudaina Palace beneath. In Menorca, a hike up Monte Toro offers the best views of this laidback Balearic hideaway. Explore the island’s prehistoric past, or simply take in the natural wonders of this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Up for some spelunking? Explore the Grotto Di Nettuno near Alghero on Sardinia—a gorgeous cave filled with stalactites and stalagmites. Take some time to embrace the distinct Catalan culture that still echoes through this part of the island. Then it’s on to Bonifacio, Corsica, a hilltop fortress town that seems to grow right out of imposing limestone cliffs.
On Elba, where Napoleon was exiled, you’ll wonder why he ever wanted to leave. As you’re pondering that, enjoy a wine tasting at the “Enoteca” inside the Medici Fortress. Your cruise concludes in Rome, where you’ll want to make some extra time to explore the Eternal City—even if you’ve been before.
Highlights of this cruise:
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.
Mountainous Ibiza is known as the White Island, perhaps because of the dazzling white walls of the traditional houses and churches that make up the small villages dotting its landscape. Its atmosphere is reminiscent of Greek islands, making it unique among the Balearic Isles, and its rustic beauty attracts artists, as well photo and film shoots. Ibiza’s nightlife is legendary and not to be missed!
Palma De Mallorca, Spain
A modern city with an ancient past, Palma’s rich history is yours to explore. Architecture admirers must visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, an iconic Gothic Roman Catholic cathedral that has stood for nearly 800 years. For nature lovers, don’t miss the Caves of Drach, where light and shadow dances across the rock formations, creating incomparable visuals you won’t see anywhere else.
Mahon, Menorca, Spain
From the moment Mahon comes into view from the ship, you know you’re in a special place. Perched high atop a cliff, shops, cafes, and restaurants line Mahon’s vibrant streets and are yours to discover. While visiting, be sure to explore the Church of Santa Maria. Here, you’ll find an unbelievable organ—complete with four keyboards and over 3,000 individual pipes—and a lovely municipal market.
A walled medieval city with Catalan influences, Alghero has an independent spirit and is home to some of the island’s most compelling architecture. Enclosed by honey-colored sea walls, it's one of Sardinia's most treasured ports—and for good reason. From rustic trattorias, to Gothic palazzi, to winding cobbled lanes, this is one of the Mediterranean's true gems.
Bonifacio, Corsica, France
Medieval homes and an imposing citadel seem to emerge from limestone cliffs overlooking the sparkling waters Mediterranean. Make your way up to Montée Saint Roch for unparalleled views, hop in a boat to explore a pristine marine reserve, and listen to moving and soulful chants of the area's Brotherhoods and Palazzu Publicu.
Portoferraio, Elba, Italy
Did you know Napoleon was once exiled to the island of Elba for ten long years? You can learn all about it at the Archaeological Civic Museum. History not your thing? Why not climb to the top of Medici Fortress, take an open cable car to the peak of Mount Capanne, or enjoy performances in Vigilanti Theatre. No matter your choice, you're sure to wonder why Napoleon ever wanted to leave.
Civitavecchia, (Rome), Italy
Always enchanting, the Eternal City will captivate you—no matter how many times you visit. Walk in the steps of gladiators at the Coliseum, channel your inner statesman at the Forum, or gaze up in wonder at Michelangelo's masterwork at St. Peter's Basilica.
