Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

Civitavecchia was settled in 108 A.D. by the Emperor Trajan and has since served faithfully as a gateway to Rome, the capital of Italy. Once the center of the Ancient World from which emperors ruled over nearly all of western civilization, Rome is still a cultural mecca. Only a few cities in the world can boast such a well-preserved level of architecture, art, and religious iconography. There’s an enormous wealth of culture and history to discover on a cruise to Rome. Visit the ancient halls of the 50,000-seat Colosseum, gaze upon the ceilings of Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, and stroll the Capitoline Museum. Roman culinary prowess is well respected and beloved the world over. Experience authentic pizza, hearty bowls of fresh pasta, excellent cheeses, wines, seafood, and delightful desserts like tiramisu and gelato at family-run trattorias that have been preparing these traditional dishes for centuries. Walk the cobblestoned piazzas making your way to narrow side streets where you’re sure to find craftsman shops and beautiful boutiques filled with gorgeous handmade accessories and homewares for keepsakes and souvenirs.

Ajaccio, Corsica

On the West coast of Corsica—southwest of Italy and southeast of France—lies Ajaccio, the island’s largest town. Replete with all the charm and sophistication one would expect of a French Mediterranean resort—palm trees, sandy beaches, bountiful shopping, beautiful marina and colorful cafes, bars and bistros—you would not be amiss to liken Ajaccio to the more well-known South-of-France hotspots, such as the Cote d’Azur, Cap d’Antibes or Marseille. Famed for being Napolean Bonaparte’s birthplace, Ajaccio tips its hat to its most famous and storied resident throughout town, from his childhood home to seafront statues, museums and street names.

Malaga, Spain

Malaga is the gateway to the Andalusian countryside and the Costa del Sol, some of the region’s most impressive beaches. It also is home to a number of magnificent palaces, including the Moorish Alcabaza and Gibralfaro.

Seville (Cadiz), Spain

From Cádiz you can easily get to Seville, exploring the old town with its quaint Moorish feel as well as its impressive monuments, pretty parks and lovely architecture. Along the way, restore your energy at any of the mouth-watering tapas bars offering some of the country’s finest seafood and typical Andalusian cuisine.

Gibraltar, United Kingdom

The great Rock of Gibraltar is a sight to behold. Made of limestone, it towers 1,400 feet above the mouth of the majestic Mediterranean Sea and is surrounded by beautiful countryside and a nature reserve.

Sète, France

On your voyage through the Mediterranean, you’ll discover that Sète is a real catch! A port alive with the sights and sounds of the largest fishing fleet on France’s southern coast offers up a true Mediterranean experience untouched by large commercial developments. Climb Mont St-Clair for sweeping panoramic views of Thau Lagoon or wind your way through a network of canals that will make you swear you might be in Venice. Sète sits on the Mediterranean terminus of the ambitious Canal du Midi, a pathway built in the late 1600s that allowed boat travel between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. The Old Port, with its canals and bridges, is about as unique as anywhere you could travel in France. If you want to go museum-hopping on your Sète cruise, visit the Museé Paul Valéry which was dedicated to the poet, essayist, and philosopher of its namesake. This fascinating place encompasses everything from the city’s history to fine art and includes all the results of the area’s traditional water jousting events since 1666. Resting on a cliff top overlooking the blue waters of the bay is the Cimetière Marin, the site where Valéry is interred and a place with its own sullen beauty. After you’ve built up an appetite getting to know Sète, indulge in the excellent seafood of which the city is famous for due to it being the home port of the largest working fishing fleet anywhere on France’s Mediterranean coast.

Provence (Toulon), France

The distinct Italian accent you’ll find here is a remnant of the 2nd century B.C. Romans. Finding the climate and inland of what is now known as Provence so inviting, they stayed and Toulon didn’t become part of France until the 15th century.

Portofino, Italy

Stroll tiny Portofino, a perfectly poised pastel village taking refuge on its own secluded peninsula. Stop at a charming café to get a bite and watch the yachts bobbing in the harbor. Explore the seductive boutiques and art galleries that line the harbor and narrow streets. Discover historic sites like the Church of St. Martin and the Castello Brown fortress. Just down the Italian Rivera awaits Cinque Terre National Park, a seascape of fishing villages carved from the cliffs. Hike through the park on 15th-century footpaths winding through olive groves and vineyards, overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean.

Florence/Pisa(Livorno), Italy

The beautiful Italian seaport of Livorno is the gateway to Florence, Pisa and Tuscany’s vast wine country. Pisa is most noted for its famous marble bell tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which has tilted 14 feet since 1370.
