Combine the Riviera’s romantic, Old World ambiance with the grandeur of the Roman and Greek empires during this 17-day cruise featuring stops in Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, Malta, and Greece. Sail north from thriving Barcelona to the quiet fishing village of Palamos, where white sand beaches almost rival the delicious local prawns. Relax over French press coffee and freshly baked butter croissants at an outdoor beachside café in romantic Sanary-sur-Mer, then sample deep red Bandol wines in a wine bar. Test your luck among the gilded opulence of a Monte Carlo casino. Stroll among the blocks, columns arches and former temples throughout the Roman Forum as the Colosseum looms in the distance. Wander Valletta’s narrow passages and scarred Maltese fortifications. Your remarkable journey ends near Athens, home of the Parthenon and the epicenter of Western Civilization’s Classical Period, where the ideas of European art, literature and philosophy took root among early scholars thousands of years ago.
