Date Port Arrival Departure
Nov 22, Sunday
Monte Carlo, Monaco (overnight) »   Embark pm
Monaco is an ancient principality steeped in rich and colorful history. Its proud monarchy is presided over by Prince Albert, who assumed the throne after his famed father Prince Rainier died in 2005.

Today when gazing on its modern skyline, it is hard to imagine that Monaco endured a turbulent past. Once a Greek settlement conquered by the Romans, it was bought from the Genoese in 1309 by the Grimaldis, who still rule as the world's oldest monarchy.

Monaco covers less than one square mile and is known primarily for its Grand Casino.

Nov 24, Tuesday
Genoa, Italy » 8 am 8 pm
Christopher Columbus hailed from Genoa "the Proud," which enjoys one of the longest and most illustrious maritime histories in all of Italy. Even today it is the country's foremost port, whose five separate bays are alive with shipping. The marvels continue ashore: Genoa has the largest medieval city center in Europe, and Renaissance palaces that once enthralled Rubens and Van Dyck.
Nov 25, Wednesday
Florence/Livorno, Italy » 7 am 7 pm
Goethe once observed that Tuscany "looks like Italy should [look]." Fortunately, little has changed in the two centuries since the German poet was himself a tourist in Tuscany. The Tyrrhenian port of Livorno was founded in the 15th century. It is the gateway to Italy's Tuscan region and to many spectacular sights; including the extraordinary Leaning Tower of Pisa, the charming medieval village of Lucca, the lovely hill town of San Gimignano and the timeless city of Florence. No place is as imbued with such grace, dignity, serenity and history as is Florence. This city's wealth of architectural and artistic treasures includes works by Raphael, da Vinci, Botticelli and Michelangelo. Truly Florence, cradle of the Italian Renaissance, is one of the world's most enticing cities.
Nov 26, Thursday
Rome/Civitavecchia, Italy » 6 am 5 pm
Civitavecchia was founded by Emperor Trajan in the 2nd century. Today this port is noted for its fine seafood and attractive monuments. Located 90 minutes away is the Eternal City of Rome. Steeped in 2,500 years of history, Rome was for many centuries the center of Western civilization. It was both the focal point of the Roman Empire and of Christendom. Landmarks such as the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon, Vatican, Sistine Chapel and Spanish Steps are reminders of the legacy of its rich past.
Nov 27, Friday
Naples, Italy » 7 am 5 pm
Naples, the center of southern Italian commerce, is located on the scenic Bay of Naples. View a moment frozen in time at the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, ancient cities buried by an eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius.
Nov 28, Saturday
Corsica/Ajaccio, France » 11 am 5 pm
Founded in 1492 by the Genoese, the small town of Ajaccio was once completely fortified. Today, however, only the dominant citadel in the old section of town still exists.

The Emperor Napoleon was born in Ajaccio in 1769 and reminders of this famous European leader are found everywhere. By the 18th century, Ajaccio had become one of the most resplendent villages in the Mediterranean. It is now the main town of southern Corsica with a population of approximately 60,000 inhabitants.

Nestled between the sea and the mountains, Golfe de Porto is located in the heart of the maritime side of the Corsican Regional Natural Park and is considered a World Heritage.

Nov 29, Sunday
Marseille, France » 6 am  
The queen of the Côte d'Azur, Marseille is France's oldest city and one of the Mediterranean's premier ports. Amid the big-city bustle, the old port is a quaint landscape of historic charm: colorful fishing boats sail past the imposing Fort Saint-Jean, narrow streets wander among ancient churches and cobbled squares, while the venerable Basilica overlooks the scene from the hilltop above.
