You should seek out the Cattedrale di San Lorenzo, the Palazzo Ducale, and the Renaissance palaces of Via Garibaldi which contain the cream of Genoa’s art collections, as well as furniture and decor from the grandest days of the city’s past, when its ships sailed to all corners of the Mediterranean Sea.

La Spezia Civitavecchia

The port of Civitavecchia is one of the largest in Italy and is, of course, a destination of MSC Cruises in the Mediterranean.

In fact, the port was known to the Romans as Centumcellae.

Day 14

Civitavecchia Cannes

A holiday to France with MSC Cruises is the perfect chance to visit Cannes. MSC Mediterranean cruises also offer excursions to Nice. Since reaching its zenith in the belle époque of the late nineteenth century, it has retained its historical styles almost intact: the medieval rabbit warren of Vieux Nice, the Italianate facades of modern Nice and the rich exuberance of fin-de-siècle residences dating from when the city was Europe’s most fashionable winter retreat.

Meals included: breakfast, lunch and dinner

 

Day 15

Cannes Palma de Mallorca

Palma is a vibrant place and a world away from the heaving tourist enclaves of the surrounding bay.
