Board the Celebrity Constellation® in Rome, Italy, and set sail for a 10-night Mediterranean cruise that stops in unforgettable ports in Italy, France and Spain. From “The Eternal City,” voyage to Livorno, a prime port for trips to nearby Pisa — site of the famous Leaning Tower — and Florence, birthplace
of the Renaissance. Spend the next day at sea and enjoy the ship’s fun onboard activities. The following day, set your sights on Portofino, Italy. Nicknamed the Italian Riviera, Portofino is known for its hilltop castle — the 16th-century Castello Brown — and the main square, Piazza Martiri dell’Olivetta.
Then, drop anchor in Nice, France, where its allure certainly hasn’t dimmed since Henri Matisse raved about the special quality of light showcased daily in the town along the Mediterranean coast (and captured it in his masterful brushstrokes). Use this time to explore the beauty of the French Riviera, which draws large numbers of artists and writers each year. Continue next to Toulon, France, where you can catch sweeping views of the Cote d’Azur and visit the historic Toulon Cathedral. Then, set off to Sete, France, previously a thriving stop for African spice merchants. Today, Sete is a charming harbor town full of museums, chapels, art galleries and 18th-century architecture.
After another leisurely day at sea, sail to popular Ibiza for 2 days of fun on the 3rd-largest island in the Balearic archipelago. This Spanish site is well-known for its beach scene and thriving nightlife. Voyage next to Palma de Mallorca (Majorca), a picturesque Spanish island beloved for its pristine beaches and natural coves. From there, you’ll cruise to Barcelona, Spain, and disembark with memories to last a lifetime.
