1

Barcelona, Spain

Depart 17:00 Dynamic Barcelona is all about architecture, from the magnificent medieval buildings of the Gothic Quarter to the Modernist movement typified by the work of Antoni Gaudi. Though his materials were stone and metal, his forms were organic, awash in curves, swirls, and colors. His masterpiece is the amazing Church of the Sagrada Familia, colossal and as yet unfinished, though construction began in 1882. A contemporary contribution to the scene is Ricardo Bofill’s post modernist National Theater of Catalonia, an imaginative combination of classical and modern design, with a greenhouse-like lobby.
2

Monte Carlo (Cannes), France

Arrive 08:00 – Depart 19:00 This celebrated seaside resort has helped define French Riviera chic and glamour for more than a century. La Croisette is the place to see and be seen, while you’ll find a rich history in Cannes’ Old Town and Vieux Port.
3

Florence/Pisa (La Spezia), Italy

Arrive 07:00 – Depart 19:00 A former fishing village at the border of two enchanting regions, La Spezia offers easy access to Tuscany and its great cities like Florence and Pisa and the Liguria’s rugged coast and terraced villages known as Cinque Terre.
4

Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

Arrive 07:00 – Depart 19:00 From the monuments of the ancient empire to the pursuit of la dolce vita, the Eternal City is an unrivalled open-air museum and a lively modern metropolis. The tiny enclave of Vatican City is home to sacred sites and priceless art.
