From Barcelona’s vibrant streets to the Amalfi Coast’s impossibly romantic charm; explore the treasures of the Mediterranean on board Crown Princess.
Fly to Barcelona for a two night stay, time to explore streets full of Spanish flavour. Whether it’s the first glimpse of the incredible Sagrada Familia, the views across the city from Park Güell, that first sip of a fruity sangria or Las Ramblas’ heady mix of street entertainers, overflowing bars and bustling restaurants; you can’t fail to be charmed by this unforgettable city.
Following your stay you’ll embark Crown Princess for your Mediterranean cruise. Explore Marseille’s maritime charm, before Livorno, the gateway to Tuscan cities Florence and Pisa awaits. Next discover a trio of ports which showcase the beauty and diversity of Greece. Cruise to Katakolon which serves as the gateway to Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games, followed by the whitewashed beauty of Mykonos and the stunning island of Santorini, where villages cling to hilltops peppered with blue domed churches and the sunsets are some of the best in the world.
Explore Kotor, with its secluded piazzas, mountainous backdrop and beautiful cobbled streets before arriving in Naples, from where you can visit the beautiful Capri or ancient Pompeii. The final part of your holiday sees you enjoy hotel stays in two beautiful Italian destinations; Rome and Salerno. Drenched in history, every step forwards in Rome is a step back in time. In between chic cafés and serene statues on street corners, you’ll find treasures like the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, where a coin tossed into its shining waters promise a return to Rome.
The glorious Amalfi Coast awaits, its rugged shoreline characterised by its sheer cliffs, beaches and pastel-coloured fishing villages. You’ll spend four nights in Salerno, an authentic Italian town which boasts one of the best-preserved historical centres on the peninsula, the forbidding Castello di Arechi, a fantastic beach, museums and restaurants. From here you could visit any of the Amalfi’s beautiful highlights including Sorrento, Ravello and Positano.
