Where better to begin an immersive discovery of the Mediterranean than mythical, legendary Athens? Arrive a few days early and step back through millennia at the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Arch of Hadrian, Ancient Agora, and the Acropolis.
On majestic Mykonos, we stay late, so stroll the cobblestone streets and sample fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and Grecian cheeses at local tavernas, before an island hop to stunning Santorini. Sip fine Greek wines, and explore the 3,500-year-old Minoan town of Akrotiri to discover the island’s explosive past.
After a luxurious day at sea, relax on Giardini Naxos, soaking in the Mediterranean sun and views of Mount Etna. Head to the hilltop town of Taormina, one of the most beautiful vantage points in all of Sicily, before a day in Amalfi, perched on one of the world’s most stunning coastlines.
In the Eternal City, stroll in the steps of gladiators at the Colosseum and gaze in awe at Michelangelo’s masterpiece in St. Peter’s Basilica. Discover Florence on another late stay—full of art, architecture, palaces, churches and museums. You’ve got one last relaxing day at sea, before concluding your voyage of dazzling Mediterranean discovery in bustling Barcelona.
RIVIERA HIGHLIGHTS VOYAGE
Azamara Journey – 5 nights, departing 21 May 2020
Arrive in Barcelona to spend the day cafe hopping and shopping along the famous La Rambla before setting sail for an action-packed Riviera Weekend Voyage.
Your first stop is in Provence, where you can wander the charming labyrinth of narrow lanes and interesting shops in La Panier, the city’s oldest neighbourhood.
Saint-Tropez will spoil you for choice with its beautiful beaches, including Pampelonne, made famous by Brigitte Bardot. A late stay gives you time to travel the hills surrounding Saint-Tropez to discover charming villages and renowned vineyards.
