10-day Cruise from Barcelona to Barcelona onboard Riviera

THE MEDITERRANEAN THROUGH THE AGES From the modernist architecture of Barcelona to the Megalithic Temples of Malta dating from 3600 BC, this remarkable voyage is a journey through time as you visit some of the most fascinating destinations in the Mediterranean. The history of Mallorca can be found in its prehistoric monuments, ancient Roman ruins and Arab baths as well as the modern architecture in Palma de Mallorca. Cave drawings near Palermo suggest that the area was home to human settlements as far back as 8000 BC. The Forum in Rome tells the story of a once mighty empire, while in Florence the magnificent David by Michelangelo became a symbol of defiance of Rome.

11-day Cruise from Istanbul to Lisbon onboard Nautica

EXPLORE OFF THE BEATEN PATH From the bustling spice markets of Istanbul to the Tower of Belém at the entrance of the Lisbon harbor, this exciting adventure visits some of the Mediterranean’s most fascinating destinations. One of the oldest settlements of the Mediterranean, the city of Izmir was inhabited as far back as the seventh millennium BC. The extraordinary Megalithic Temples of Malta are the oldest freestanding structures in the world and mark a significant period in the cultural, artistic and technological development of civilizations. Dating from the ninth century, the old town of Tunis near La Goulette is filled with narrow streets, historical sites and souks and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.

8-day Cruise from Athens to Barcelona onboard Riviera

SHADES OF PERFECT From the sapphire waters of the Ionian Sea to the colorful fields of Provence to the changing autumn landscapes of the Tuscan countryside, each port of call on this amazing journey contributes to a mosaic of some of the most enchanting destinations in the Mediterranean. The ancient ruins scattered throughout the city of Rome create their own montage of history, and the Acropolis in Athens tells the tale of another empire. The yacht-filled harbor of Monte Carlo adds the contrast of modern luxuries, and the terraced lemon groves of Sorrento contribute shades of gold with the limoncello for which the region is famous. From Athens to Barcelona, the colors of these diverse destinations blend into a harmonious itinerary that is ultimately a work of art.

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.

7-day Cruise from Rome to Monte Carlo onboard Riviera

COASTAL TOWNS SHINE ALONG THE SEASHORE A treasure trove of unforgettable destinations, this journey is a fabulous exploration of the very best the Mediterranean has to offer. With steeply stacked pink and terracotta houses, Positano is one of the most picturesque seaside towns on the Amalfi Coast, and Il Castello, the largest of Cagliari’s historic neighborhoods, was once the home of the city’s aristocracy and religious leaders. The baths are still open at Banys Àrabs, the only building in Palma de Mallorca dating back to the Arab settlement, and the views of Barcelona from Park Güell are almost as spectacular as the design of the park by Gaudí.
