Trip Duration: 11 days
Ancient cultures come to life as you explore the art and history of Southern Europe. Begin your luxury cruise in Barcelona then head for the historic port city of Marseille. In Florence, view Renaissance masterpieces such as Brunelleschi’s Duomo, the Baptistery of San Giovanni, and Michelangelo’s David—while even more Italian treasures greet you in Rome. Surround yourself with Greek Mythology in Sorrento, gaze upon the modern architecture of Messina (rebuilt after a ruinous 1908 earthquake), and explore Valletta, Europe’s smallest capital city. Cross into Greece, where you’ll lounge on the black sand beaches of Santorini and trek through the walled city of Rhodes before disembarking in Athens.
