12-day Cruise from Lisbon to Rome onboard Nautica

A VOYAGE OF CONTRASTS Spanning two continents and six countries, this journey explores the unique history and beauty of different cultures united by the Mediterranean Sea. The Muslim call to prayer at the Hassan II Mosque brings into stark contrast the customs of this continent only nine miles from Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar. The essence of small town life in Spain is captured in the sparkling white houses with red-tiled roofs and twisting cobblestone streets of Mijas, just outside of Málaga. The history of Antibes can be found in the artifacts, sculptures and amphorae on display in the archaeological museum situated atop the Promenade Amiral de Grasse.
