Rivieras
of the Mediterranean

Journey Through the Highlights

Departing late from Porto Venere, Cinque Terre’s “sixth town,” and Livorno, the gateway to Florence, Pisa and Lucca, you have time to trek through various UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Revel in the charms of the Ligurian Coast with extended evenings in Portoferraio and Portofino. Grab an Italian gelato or sit down and enjoy a pesto dish before continuing a leisurely stroll along a harbor path on the Italian Riviera. Explore hidden coves up close in the waters around Cinque Terre and Portofino with opportunities to use marina water toys directly from the yacht. Experience the glamor of Monte Carlo with fewer crowds, as the end of summer brings fewer visitors.

Civitavecchia acts as the main terminal for all cruises heading into Rome or the less-crowded, nearby Tarquinia. From there a shuttle bus takes you to the Service Center of Largo della Pace where you can embark on adventures through the Eternal City. Rome maintains its position in the world as a powerful influence in religion, politics, and art, as it is well known as the site for intellectual and artistic achievements past. From the iconic Roman Coliseum aboveground to the mysterious catacombs of the Capuchin Crypt below ground, the capital of Italy beckons the adventurous to discover its many secrets and stories. The city holds a certain cosmopolitan feel as well with countless rooftop bars that are a prime location for an evening sunset.

Sep 10 Portoferraio (Tuscany), Italy Arrive: 8:00 am Depart: 10:00 pm

Portoferraio (Tuscany), Italy

The largest city on the Italian island of Elba, Portoferraio stands on the edge of the harbor at the top of a hill. Once home to the infamous Napoleon, you can visit the two villas he dwelled in during his time spent in exile on Elba, San Martino and Villa dei Mulini, the second of which was turned into a national museum. Located along the sea, the city has its share of remarkable beaches, whether you prefer sandy shores or a stony oceanfront. Hike the path to Castello del Volterraio, a charming castle made for explorers looking for more of a challenging adventure.

Sep 11 Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Italy Arrive: 8:00 am Depart: 10:00 pm

Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Italy

From the grandeur of the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the charming canals of La Venezia Nuova (New Venice), which date back to the Medici era, the Italian city of Florence contains much to explore. The port city of Livorno’s colorful building facades rises above the canal waters as a sight to behold. The long and storied history of Lucca call out to curious explorers seeking a mentally stimulating adventure. Cathedrals, art, culture, food, these iconic Italian cities have it all, and Livorno acts as the hub to make your way to each.

Sep 12 Porto Venere, (Cinque Terre), Italy Arrive: 8:00 am Depart: 11:00 pm

Porto Venere, (Cinque Terre), Italy

Referred to as Cinque Terre’s "sixth town," Portovenere overlooks the Gulf of La Spezia along the Ligurian coast, providing much of what its five counterparts do - seaside scenes, rustic cuisine and stunning coastlines - with a fraction of the crowds. Seek out hidden gems like Byron’s Grotto, a secluded cave named after the literary figure who frequented the area. Nearby lies the famous Cinque Terre, comprised of five small towns, hence its name. The region lies within the bounds of a national park and what’s considered the Italian Riviera, giving it a magical aura.

Sep 13 Portofino, Italy Arrive: 8:00 am Depart: 11:59 pm

Portofino, Italy

The sea along the Italian Riviera is particularly peaceful, as it gently laps the shore. Snuggled in the Ligurian Coast is the village of Portofino, named after dolphins, Portus Delphini, that frolicked in these waters. The Piazza Martiri Dell’Olivetta is the main square of Portofino at the town’s center. Take a stroll along the row of beautiful multicolored buildings and a number of chic cafes and restaurants. Along the way, grab yourself an Italian gelato or sit down and enjoy a pesto dish before continuing your leisure walk toward the harbor. Not far from the coast, you will find beautiful hidden islands, such as San Fruttuoso and Santa Margherita.

Sep 14 At Sea

At Sea

Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore

Sep 15 Monte Carlo, Monaco Arrive: 8:00 am Depart: 6:00 pm

Monte Carlo, Monaco

One of the smallest sovereign states in the world - second only to the Vatican City - the Principality of Monaco is sure to mesmerize you. The most recognized building in Monte Carlo is Place du Casino. Try your luck at this opulent and iconic gaming house, a favorite spot of James Bond movies and real-life celebrities. Another icon is the Prince’s Palace, which you can enter for a glimpse at the Throne Room, with ceiling frescoes painted by Orazio de Ferrari depicting the surrender of Alexander the Great. Every day at five minutes before noon, the white-uniformed guards perform the changing of the guard with the pomp and circumstance you would expect in Monaco.

Sep 16 Nice, France Arrive: 8:00 am

Nice, France

Nice rises from the pebbled coast to lush hills, yet the heart of the city is located between the old port city and the Aeroport de Côte d’Azur. To take it all in, enjoy a jaunt on the Promenade des Anglais along the Mediterranean Sea. The Old Port, located in Vieux Nice (Old Nice), is a colorful and busy place, with various markets. There discover an ensemble of narrow streets, colorful architecture, and picturesque piazzas. Stretch out on Nice’s recognizable blue lounge chairs on one of its iconic beaches. Some of these private beaches, like the Blue Beach or the Castel Beach, are among the most glamorous beaches on the French Riviera.
