From Savoir-Vivre to the Dolce Vita: Barcelona, Spain to Rome, Italy
MS Europa 2 Voyage 1521 - August 1-8, 2015

The Italian Riviera and the Cote d’Azur are legendary dream destinations with cosmopolitan resorts, which have developed their very own respective lifestyles – perfect for spending some relaxing days under the Mediterranean sun. Stroll through the lively marina in St. Tropez and in Monte Carlo, enjoy looking at luxury yachts or go on a Ferrari ride** along the winding Grande Corniche coastal road. From Viareggio, explore Tuscany in Lucca** or Florence**, before Rome, the Eternal City, inspires you to stay a little longer.

Highlights of this cruise:

  • Where the jet-setters meet: relaxed hours in St. Tropez and Port Grimaud.
  • Picturesque cliff villages: the EUROPA 2 cruises along Cinque Terre.
  • The majesty of the Renaissance: discoveries in Florence** or Lucca**.

** The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to changes.
