Explore the best of the Mediterranean on this fabulous 11-night cruise with 5* Celebrity Infinity. Departing from Barcelona this cruise visits Valencia and Alicante in Spain before calling at Gibraltar and then onto Malaga. Next is the city of Marseille, capital of the Provence region of France, and Nice before you reach Livorno in the Tuscany region of Italy. The final stop is at Civitavecchia, the local port for Rome before you cruise back to Barcelona.

Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy: 

Following your flight from Dublin, you will be transferred to the port to board the 5* Celebrity Edge.

Civitavecchia was settled in 108 A.D. by the Emperor Trajan and has since served faithfully as a gateway to Rome, the capital of Italy. Once the center of the Ancient World from which emperors ruled over nearly all of western civilization, Rome is still a cultural mecca. Only a few cities in the world can boast such a well-preserved level of architecture, art, and religious iconography. There’s an enormous wealth of culture and history to discover on a cruise to Rome. Visit the ancient halls of the 50,000-seat Colosseum, gaze upon the ceilings of Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, and stroll the Capitoline Museum. Roman culinary prowess is well respected and beloved the world over. Experience authentic pizza, hearty bowls of fresh pasta, excellent cheeses, wines, seafood, and delightful desserts like tiramisu and gelato at family-run trattorias that have been preparing these traditional dishes for centuries. Walk the cobblestoned piazzas making your way to narrow side streets where you’re sure to find craftsman shops and beautiful boutiques filled with gorgeous handmade accessories and homewares for keepsakes and souvenirs.

Day 2: Naples, Italy

Framed by Mount Vesuvius along a dramatic skyline, the 2,800 year-old port city of Naples is chock full of historical sites, churches, and museums that make it a fascinating place for you to explore. For all of Rome’s notoriety and reputation, Naples, with its historic city center deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has just as many important archeological sites and landmarks. Visit the Museo Archeologico Nazionale for a world-class collection of Egyptian and Graeco-Roman artifacts. And, if you’d like to venture a little deeper on your Naples cruise, then exploring Naples from below the ground is a must. Start with a trip into the basement of the San Lorenzo Maggiore church where you’ll find a partially excavated Roman market and a little deeper, just below the Roman ruins, you’ll find remnants from the Greeks to discover. And in the region where pizza was first invented, you know the food is going to be incredible. Whether you’re looking for a thin, wood-fired Margherita pie, spaghetti alle vongole or a zeppole dusted with confectioner’s sugar, Naples and her bountiful edible treasures is sure to please. Only 35 miles down the coast, Salerno offers you a rich history, but also boasts a marvelous collection of parks, natural wonders, and unique vantage points to take in the beauty of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Two cities. One incredible stretch of Italian coastline.

Day 3: At Sea:

Day 4: Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Italy:

The beautiful Italian seaport of Livorno is your gateway to Florence, Pisa, and Tuscany’s vast wine country. Pisa is most noted for its famous marble bell tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which has tilted 14 feet since 1370.

Located in central Italy and the capital of the Tuscany region, Florence is the birthplace of history’s most important cultural and intellectual awakening–the Renaissance. There’s so much to see and appreciate on your cruise to Florence. Whether standing in awe of Brunelleschi’s red cathedral dome on Piazza del Duomo or contemplating Michelangelo’s sublime hand in any of his masterworks, you will know that you are in the presence of one of the world’s great cities. The breathtaking scenery and all the romance conjured by the city’s streets, bridges, and buildings will not disappoint.

Neighboring Pisa is also worth some investigation outside of its notorious architectural faux paux, Leaning Tower of Pisa. This former maritime power boasts a vibrant university population that fuels the busy café and bar scene here. You’ll also find much in the way of Gothic architecture here, such as the Battistero, the place where Galileo was baptized. Head to the Museo Nazionale di San Matteo for paintings, sculptures, and artifacts spanning some 300 years with a special emphasis on the artists of the Tuscan school.

Day 5: Monte Carlo, Monaco:

Monaco means yachts, roulette wheels and ocean views — the epitome of Mediterranean class and opulence. Cruise to Monaco to play a round of blackjack at the famous Monte Carlo Casino, and while you’re there, check out its delightfully over-the-top Beaux Arts exterior and its lavish marble atrium. Pay a visit to the Palais du Prince, the 13th-century fortress where the Principality’s current royal family resides. Want to spend your time in Monaco outdoors? Do some sunbathing at Larvotto Beach — the golden sands of this urban beach are just a short walk from the upscale shops of Avenue Princess Grace.

Day 6: Cannes, France: 

With long boardwalks, massive yachts anchored in the harbor, and sunny plazas, Cannes personifies the charismatic French Riviera. Its balmy climate, deep blue Mediterranean waters, and views of the magnificent Alps in the distance, have made this city an alluring retreat for wealthy aristocrats since the mid-1800s. Today, the once small fishing village is world-renowned for its annual film festival and luxurious shopping.

This unequivocal playground for the rich is the perfect locale to splurge and pamper yourself accordingly on your French Riviera cruise. And as you stroll the palm-shaded Promenade de la Croisette, you’ll find a wealth of boutiques filled with gorgeous haute couture and deluxe garments for fabulous keepsakes and souvenirs. A short distance away from the promenade you can pick up a few provisions at the Marché Forville, a great indoor food market with a fine selection of the freshest oysters, French cheeses, bread, olives, and much more for a ravishing lunch on the beach. Afterward, hop a ferry to both Sainte-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat Islands for some light hiking or visit Fort Royal where the story of the Man in the Iron Mask originated.

Day 7: Palma de Mallorca, Spain:

This island enclave is often described as a mini-Barcelona, with a Gothic feel that has overtaken centuries of Roman and Moorish culture. Visit El Baluard, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, which was built on the site of the remnants of the 16th century Bastio de Sant Pere, or shop for bargain pearls at the city’s many jewelers.

Day 8: Barcelona, Spain: 

Following your departure from the Edge, you will be transferred to the airport to catch your flight home to Dublin.

7 Nights aboard the 5 Star Celebrity Edge, operated by Celebrity Cruises. (See the ship info tab for more information on Celebrity Edge).
