A Grand Voyage to the Western Mediterranean


Villefranche-Rome
June  3-28, 2015

From the contemporary masterpiece of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia and the Moorish marvel of the Alhambra in Granada, to the splendors of Imperial Rome and the treasures of Renaissance Florence, this voyage will show you some of the most elegant and fascinating architectural and artistic treasures to be found in the Western Mediterranean.

Your journey begins on the French Riviera at the beautiful fishing village of Villefranche from where you can head for nearby Nice, Monte Carlo or the hill towns of Provence. In France, you will also visit Avignon, home to the splendid Gothic Papal Palace and the medieval walled town of Carcassonne.

Onwards towards Spain, we will call at Barcelona and then sail along the Iberian peninsula to the quintessentially Andalusian city of Seville. Cruise down the River Guadalquivir to the Atlantic and on to Gibraltar. Calls at Palma, Bonifacio, the island of Elba and Portofino on Italy’s famed Cinque Terre coast will then give you a true idea of the beauty and history of the Mediterranean. The itinerary concludes with two of the most impressive and historically fascinating cities in the world, Florence and Rome.
