2015-04-mediterranean-hideaways-map

DAY 1 | April 24. Depart for Spain 

DAY 2 | April 25. Barcelona, Spain
Embark on your luxury cruise aboard Riviera in cosmopolitan Barcelona, Spain’s gem of art and architecture.

DAY 3 | April 26. Valencia, Spain
Once an industrial port, today Spain’s third-largest city celebrates its innovation and revival, epitomized in the monumental City of Arts and Sciences. Best known as the birthplace of paella, Valencia is also famed for its unique mix of Baroque cathedrals, futuristic architecture, lively plazas, lush parks and sprawling beaches.

DAY 4 | April 27. Palma de Mallorica, Spain
Dominating the horizon and overlooking the harbor, the Palma Cathedral and Bellver Castle offer a striking first glimpse of Palma, the stunning capital of Mallorca. Winding alleys and cobbled streets characterize Old Palma, while charming windmills and an impressive 18th-century manor house beckon from the verdant countryside.

DAY 5 | April 28. Marseille / Provence, France
Provence has inspired and enchanted for centuries. From the historic port city of Marseille to the picturesque countryside dotted with medieval towns and quaint villages perched on rocky hilltops, Provençal France fulfills even the grandest expectations.

DAY 6 | April 29. Monte Carlo, Monaco
Nestled on the coast between France and Italy, sparkling Monte Carlo features the famous Grand Corniche and the 12th-century Prince’s Palace. With an area of less than one square mile, this city-state packs plenty of excitement and attractions into its small space, including the glamorous Monte Carlo Casino and the Circuit de Monaco, site of the famed Grand Prix.

DAY 7 | April 30. Portofino, Italy
Irrefutably beautiful Portofino is nestled on a botanically rich peninsula along the scenic Italian Riviera. In this fishing village turned seaside resort, you’ll find pretty pastel-colored houses on the harbor and plenty of boutique shopping and sidewalk cafes in town. Nearby Santa Margherita is quieter with a friendly atmosphere—perfect for a relaxing escape.

DAY 8 | May 1. La Spezia / Cinque Terre, Italy
Stretching along the rugged Ligurian coastline is the colorful mosaic that forms the Cinque Terre (or Five Lands), one of Italy’s most prized treasures. Connected by narrow winding paths and free of cars, each small village presents its own unique appeal, boasting intense beauty and offering a glimpse into authentic Italy.

DAY 9 | May 2. Florence / Pisa / Tuscany (Livorno), Italy
The architectural and artistic masterpieces of the Renaissance—Brunelleschi’s Duomo, the Baptistery, Michelangelo’s David, the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery—await you in Florence, a masterpiece in itself. Pisa’s superb Field of Miracles and iconic Leaning Tower also beckon, as does the captivating Tuscan countryside, renowned for its gently rolling hills, medieval hilltop villages and splendid wine.

DAY 10 | May 3. Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
Disembark and bid farewell to Riviera. Riviera will continue on to Sorrento, Italy; Taormina, Sicily; Argostoli, Greece; Kotor, Montenegro; Zadar, Croatia; Koper, Slovenia; and Venice.
