Civitavecchia is a provincial seaside town located in the central region of the Lazio. Learn the history behind the Fort Michelangelo built by Renaissance artist Bramante, and do not miss a visit to Piazza Leandra – the medieval centre of Civitavecchia. As people say, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. You can take a bath at La Ficoncella Thermal springs near the ancient ruins of Taurine Baths like the Romans once did, and enjoy a fine plate of pasta in an alfresco setting. Civitavecchia’s beauty will captivate you and take your breath away.

Day 5: Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy

Nearby in the Tuscan region, Livorno is another port city located within Italy. It is known to have the best seafood on the Tyrrhenian coast, so treat yourself to a good meal when you get hungry.

Afterwards, you can take a day trip out to Florence and Pisa – where you can visit many historic attractions on foot such as the Santa’s Croce, Piazza del Duomo and Michelangelo’s David. Before you go, remember to have some fun and snap a funky picture with the Leaning Tower of Pisa!

Day 6: Cannes, France

Experience Cannes, an enchanting resort town on the French Riviera. Be seduced by its wealth and glamour, as you spot the rich and the famous, and watch luxurious cars cruise by. Get an amazing view of the city and the sea by taking a drive up Suquet Hill, or bask in the sun along the sandy beaches. Cannes is home to the Palais des Festivals, where it holds an annual film festival that draws crowds from all over the world.

Day 7: Provence (Marseille), France > Barcelona, Spain

Founded in 600 BC by the Phoenicians, Marseille is the oldest city in France infused with history and multiculturalism. The city has been named the European Capital of Culture in 2013 and centers around the Vieux Port, where you can watch the locals buy and sell fish. Visit contemporary monuments such as Cathedrale de la Major, or cafe-hop along La Canebiere. For some retail therapy, head towards the Republique quarter where you can find upscale boutiques and admire Haussmann-designed buildings. Soak in the splendid grandeur of these stunning landscapes as the ship routes back to Barcelona for your return to shore.
