From $2,199 per person double occupancy
The elegance, excitement and rich cultures of the Mediterranean are yours to discover as you cruise to France and Italy aboard Riviera, Oceania Cruises’ newest vessel. Depart Monte Carlo and travel to St. Tropez for a sample of the high life on the French Riviera, where museums featuring the artwork of Matisse blend with upscale restaurants and shops. Cruise up the coast and explore historic old Marseille or experience the rich Provençal countryside near Aix, with its ornate 15th-century fountains, or Avignon, home to the spectacular Palace of the Popes. Next stop is Italy and the resort town of Portofino, where a magnificent 16th-century castle overlooks a modern playground of villas and yachts. Savor the superb Renaissance art and architecture of legendary Florence or see Pisa’s famous Leaning Tower amid the superb Field of Miracles. Arrive in Sorrento and explore its charming streets, perhaps visit Capri with its timeless island scenery, or take in the amazing ruins of Pompeii. Then relax in Amalfi or Positano, picturesque Italian villages featuring medieval cathedrals, Moorish-style houses and breathtaking seaside cliffs, before disembarking in Civitavecchia, the port of Rome.
