Cruise with us for seven nights from Rome to Barcelona aboard the exclusively chartered, small ship Variety Voyager, featuring only 36 all ocean-view cabins. Enjoy the sun-drenched landscapes and lush, mountainous backdrops of the French and Italian rivieras and islands, a glamorous retreat for artists, writers, nobility and gourmands. This unique, comprehensive itinerary immerses you in the region's dynamic history, inimitable art and culture and stunning scenery, and features up to five UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Carcassonne's medieval fortifications and the postcard cliffside villages of Italy's Cinque Terre. Explore Corsica's fortified town of Bonifacio and Sardinia's dazzling Costa Smeralda. Choose between the Renaissance treasures of Florence or the Tuscan cities of Pisa and Lucca. Along the enchanting Côte d'Azur, enjoy specially arranged excursions in alluring Monaco, the epitome of Riviera chic and home of St. Nicholas Cathedral, where Princess Grace is interred; historic Marseilles, to walk along the vibrant Vieux Port; and charming Nice.

Rome Pre-Cruise and Barcelona Post-Cruise Options also available.
