Day 1: Civitavecchia (Rome)
Embark your ship – Norwegian Epic
Civitavecchia (Rome) is often described as the Eternal City and is filled with breath taking treasurers of almost every description – The Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica, the Colosseum, and the Trevi Fountain where a tossed coin promises your return to this city of Romance. Take a walk along the famous (and expensive) Via Veneto which came to fame in the 1960’ as the centre of la dolce vita (the sweet life) attracting jet setters and stars from around the world. Tour its many historical landmarks and enjoy the food, the culture, the ambiance, and the surrounding scenery. There is no doubt you’ll learn the meaning of la dolce vita when you visit Rome.
Day 2: Livorno
Livorno.is claimed to be the cradle of the Renaissance and is home to the Uffizi Gallery which is only rivalled by the Louvre for its collection of Renaissance masterpieces. You can also make your way to the world-famous tower of Pisa which took over 177 years to build and has been leaning since construction began in 1173.
Day 3: Cannes
Cannes is of course famed mostly for its 10-day film festival held in May each year. The old town, called Le Suquet is quaint but small and whilst there are plenty of very up market shops in La Croisette, a tree lined boulevard whose prices may well take your breath away!
Day 4: Palma (Mallorca)
Palma a major port, and the summer holiday spot of choice for Spain’s royal family. Explore the lovely old quarter and step into the past in the historic churches, then get a taste of contemporary Palma in the city’s lively tapas bars. Visit the Arab Baths, the Moorish Palace and the Mallorca Museum, buy a string of Mallorca pearls or for outstanding views of the harbour take a ride on the wooden train to Soller.
Day 5: Barcelona
Day 6: At sea
Day 7: Naples
Naples. Under the shadow of the mighty Vesuvius, Naples is best known for its cache of medieval and Baroque architecture, and as the birthplace of the pizza. With Pompeii on its doorstep and as many churches as Rome, there’s a lot to see in this city on the romantic Bay of Naples. Sip a glass of Lacryma Christi wine from the slopes of Vesuvius or shop on Via San Gregorio Armeno. Or simply relax with a Margarita pizza at one of the many piazza café.
