Rome to Rome
Can you picture it? Matisse at his easel overlooking the blue Mediterranean as he paints plein-air. Grace Kelly and Cary Grant driving the spectacular Grand Corniche above Monaco in a powder blue convertible. Those same stars walking the red carpet at Cannes. The French and Italian Rivieras have lured visitors for generations with their delicious climate, gorgeous beaches, charming old hill towns and quaint fishing villages. But that’s not all. Come experience the seductive quality of light that Monet called “so bright, so luminous” and see how it shines on medieval towers and boulangeries, on the traditional Provençal fishing boats bobbing in Sanary-sur-Mer’s harbor, on Monte Carlo’s famous casino. Explore even further on excursions to Nice and Eze, the perfumeries of Grasse or Aix en Provence, the spectacular cliffside villages of Cinque Terre, or even Pisa and Florence.

Day 1: Rome
In this enchanting city the past and present intersect in perfect harmony. Casually intermingled among ancient ruins and majestic cathedrals are the trappings of a modern metropolis: Skyscrapers,cafes, boutiques selling designer footwear. But of course what you seek first in the heart of Rome is its breathtaking history.  A good place to begin is the Vatican, with its Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Works by Bernini, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, and Raphael are just a few of those on display, any one of which is worth hours of contemplation. Then the ancient ruins—Colosseum, Forum, Circus Maximus. And of course the Trevi Fountain for the obligatory coins promising your return to the Eternal City.

Day 2: Portoferraio
Pine-scented forests and miles of sandy beach await your arrival on the tranquil island of Elba. Enjoy a glass of local Moscato with the fresh catch of the day before pondering your next move. Perhaps you’ll visit the nearby countryside with its small fishing villages and dramatic mountain passes. Or see the calming beauty of Tuscan Archipelago National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.  Or maybe you’ll decide to walk to the nearest beach and dip your toes into the warm Mediterranean.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Cannes
Spend a day wandering among the rich and famous in the chic epicenter of the French Riviera — a world of exclusive boutiques, palm-fringed boulevards, sun-drenched beaches, and elegant sidewalk cafés. Be sure to visit the Avenue of the Stars, where you can place your hands in the prints of international celebrities. An optional escorted walking tour guides you through the best of this extraordinary and stylish city. 
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 4: Toulon
This port city is a major naval base and well as popular harbor for fishing boats and ferries. Place de La Liberte is Toulon’s main square and the hub of the city. Nearby is the Genie de La Navigation, an imposing marble statue from 1847. Try not to miss the Museum of Natural History for Toulon and Var, with a surprising diversity of 978 birds and 250 mammals found in this area. And take the cable car that shuttles people up and down Mont Faron.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Monte Carlo
Glide into port in one of Europe’s most exclusive harbors. Mingle with other privileged yachtsmen or step ashore and start walking. The glittering Grand Casino, legendary for its exotic setting on screen and off, is a must see, as is the royal family’s palace and the tomb of Philadelphia-born Princess Grace in the Cathedral.

Day 7: Portofino
With its golden ochre and terracotta buildings, designer shops, and chic cafés, Portofino represents the height of Italian artistry and sophistication. Sip a cappuccino along the fabled marina or enjoy a day of shopping in one of the town’s tempting little boutiques. As you look out over the harbor from the famous Hotel Splendido, it’s hard not to admire the sleek, streamlined beauty of your Windstar ship.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 8: Portovenere
Stunning UNESCO World Heritage Sites beckon you. Select an optional excursion to Pisa, known for its bell tower with its unintended tilt.  Tour the beautiful city of Florence, or the historic San Gimegnano. Or step back into Tuscany’s rustic tradition to visit the charming villages of Cinque Terre (Five Lands) by boat.
