Monte Carlo to Barcelona Cruise: 7- nights in September 2012.

Saint Tropez EgliseStow away on a an exploration of the gems between Monte Carlo and Barcelona. Depart form Monte Carlo, the playground of the rich and famous and head for Portofino, another playground. This Italian Riviera town is glamorous, but in an old-fashioned way. The rustic and elegant, the provincial and chic, the cosmopolitan and the small-town are blended together here in a sun-drenched pastiche. Livorno is Italy’s second-largest port after Genoa. It also serves as a gateway to the Tuscany region, and the great cultural centres of Florence, Lucca, Pisa and Siena. Enjoy a day under the tuscan sun exploring the small cobbled street towns or tasting the dark-red Chianti wines. The beautiful trove of highland forests, remote villages, hidden cultural gems, vineyards, beaches, and alpine lakes and streams will have you falling in love with Calvi, Corsica. In Autummn, fallen leaves and chestnuts blanket the ground below stunning baroque churches and houses still roofed in traditional blue-gray slate. St. Tropez, Once a sleepy, unassuming fishing village, this jet set haven became popular as an artists’ colony in the late-19th century. The location of one of Brigitte Bardot's films, the tiny port now holds world wide fame. Marseille is a vibrant, cosmopolitan port and the most populated city in the country after Paris. The craggy, mountainous hinterland of the Provence provides Marseille with a spectacular backdrop. Stop in at Port Vendres, France before concluding the cruise in Barcelona. Shop the famous La Rambla street, the vibrant fruit markets or gaze upon all of Gaudi's famous architectural buildings. The Sagrada Familia church is a site not to be missed!
