The itinerary

Genoa is the gateway to the Italian Riviera and is the busiest cruise port in Italy. The city has undergone major renovations as its cruise industry has grown, the area around the port is now littered with chic cafés and restaurants, museums and galleries. Stroll through the ancient city gates and into the Old City for a taste of medieval Genoa. From Genoa, you can take a trip to nearby Portofino, Santa Margherita, and the wider Liguria region.

Since being designated a European Capital of Culture for 2013, with an estimated €660 million of funding in the bargain, Marseille has been in the throes of an extraordinary transformation, with no fewer than five major new arts centres, a beautifully refurbished cruise port, revitalised neighbourhoods, and a slew of new shops and restaurants. The spectacular Notre Dame de la Garde is one of the most popular spots to visit in the city, the steep climb to reach the cathedral offers stunning city-wide views. Marseille's Old Port is filled with chic seafood restaurants overlooking yachts and fishing boats. The second-largest city in France, Marseille is one of Europe's most vibrant destinations.

View over Marseille in the South of France

The infinite variety of street life, the nooks and crannies of the medieval Barri Gòtic, the ceramic tile and stained glass of Art Nouveau facades, the art and music, the throb of street life, the food (ah, the food!)—one way or another, Barcelona will find a way to get your full attention. The capital of Catalonia is a banquet for the senses, with its beguiling mix of ancient and modern architecture, tempting cafés and markets, and sun-drenched Mediterranean beaches. A stroll along La Rambla and through waterfront La Barceloneta, as well as a tour of Gaudí's majestic Sagrada Família and his other unique creations, are essential parts of a visit to Spain's second-largest city. Barcelona's vibe stays lively well into the night, when you can linger over regional wine and cuisine at buzzing tapas bars. Many Mediterranean cruises begin and/or end in Barcelona, and this vibrant city makes the perfect pre or post-cruise holiday extension!

Sagrada Família, Barcelona, Spain

Palma de Mallorca is a popular stop and embarkation port for many Western Mediterranean cruise itineraries. The capital of the Balearic Islands is a wonderful blend of modern high rise, seafront resorts and historic, ancient city. The Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, also known as Le Seu, is a must-see landmark. It's one of the tallest Gothic structures in Europe and is a dominating sight on the skyline as cruise ships dock in the city. The cathedral is situated in the Old Town, which is filled with chic boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants. Cruise ships dock in Estació Marítima, which is around a 10 minute bus ride, or 40 minute walk to the centre of Palma.

Day 5At Sea

Naples is Italy's third largest city. Its claim to fame is the spectacular location along one of the world's most splendid bays, backed by the perfect cone of Mount Vesuvius. In addition to its beautiful setting, Naples' surprises with other outstanding attractions such as the Royal Palace, San Carlos Opera House, and the Castel Nuovo, dating from the 13th-century. Naples provides a convenient starting point for trips to such favoured destinations as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius. When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, the population of 20,000 was wiped out, but dozens of buildings were preserved under layers of cinder more than 20 feet deep. The most important finds from Pompeii are displayed in Naples' National Archaeological Museum. A visit here will no doubt enhance a visit to ancient Pompeii. The Isle of Capri can also be reached via a 45-minute hydrofoil service.

Livorno is the only spot in Tuscany for cruise ships to dock, and is the gateway to Pisa and Florence for thousands of cruise passengers every day. Most of Livorno's artistic treasures date from the 17th century and aren't all that interesting unless you dote on obscure baroque artists. Livorno's most famous native artist, Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920), was of much more recent vintage. Sadly, there's no notable work by him in his hometown. The Mercato Nuovo, which has been around since 1894, sells all sorts of fruits, vegetables, grains, meat, and fish. Outdoor markets nearby are also chock-full of local colour. The presence of Camp Darby, an American military base just outside town, accounts for the availability of many American products.

Genoa is the gateway to the Italian Riviera and is the busiest cruise port in Italy. The city has undergone major renovations as its cruise industry has grown, the area around the port is now littered with chic cafés and restaurants, museums and galleries. Stroll through the ancient city gates and into the Old City for a taste of medieval Genoa. From Genoa, you can take a trip to nearby Portofino, Santa Margherita, and the wider Liguria region.
