Destinations to visit on a Western Mediterranean Cruise


A hub of culture with an extraordinary climate and old-world beauty, Nice is the gem of the French Riviera.

Walk along the Promenade des Anglais or marvel at the Mediterranean façades of the Old Town, try cuisine Niçoise by the sea and peruse the famous Cours Saleya markets.
With its blend of French-Italian culture and Mediterranean appeal, the city is a one-of-a-kind destination, and a must-see on your visit to Provence and the Côte d’Azur.
Whether you’re here to sample the local wine and produce, take in the famous Baroque and Belle Époque architecture, or simply to experience the decadent, carpe diem style of living that’s synonymous with the French Riviera – Nice deserves to be at the very top of your travel wish list in the south of France.

Sorrento & Civitavecchia

Sorrento: Rugged cliffs house winding streets, bustling with café and restaurant culture. Sip limoncello and enjoy views out to the Mediterranean Sea, explore the Old Town, brimming with Italian charm, locals and picture-perfect pastel buildings, or take a day trip to Pompeii, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius.

Civitavecchia (Rome)
: The Port of Civitavecchia is the perfect stop for visiting Rome, being located just 45 miles to the northwest of the city. The Italian coastal town of Civitavecchia is, itself, rich in history. Stroll along the port to witness the towering Michelangelo Fort, often cited as the most important architectural landmark on the Lazio coastline. Once used as therapeutic thermal baths by the Romans, the Taurine Baths are another archaeological site not to be missed.
