Ancient Vignettes itinerary
Roman Forum, Rome, Italy
Ancient cultures come to life as you explore the art and history of Southern Europe. Embark on your luxury cruise aboard the Riviera in cosmopolitan Barcelona, Spain’s gem of art and architecture, and set off to Provençal France, where you will be welcomed into the historic port city of Marseille. View the great masterpieces of the Renaissance—Brunelleschi’s Duomo, the Baptistery of San Giovanni, Michelangelo’s David, the Ponte Vecchio, and the Uffizi Gallery—in Florence, while even more remnants of Italy’s glorious past await you in Rome, Italy’s capital city.
Near the legendary ruins of Pompeii, Sorrento delights with cobblestone streets, a seaside promenade, and classic Greek mythology. Gaze upon the surprisingly modern architecture of Messina, famously rebuilt after a ruinous earthquake in 1908, before you explore Malta and the ancient walls of Europe’s smallest capital city, Valletta.
As you cross into Greece, you’ll soon be lounging on the black sand beaches of Santorini and trekking through the medieval walled city of Rhodes. Your time on the Riviera concludes in Athens, one of the world’s oldest cities and the Cradle of Western Civilization.
