Cruise to Naples, located on Italy's stunning Amalfi coast, a city rich in history. There are plenty of things to do in Naples for the adventurous and not so adventurous wanderer. If you feel like staying close, Naples grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles will keep you thoroughly entertained. It is also highly recommended to hop on the train at Napoli Centrale station, and take the 30-minute trip to the historical wonder that is the ancient city of Pompeii! This huge archaeological site, once a sophisticated Roman city, was preserved under ash and pumice after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Visitors can explore and walk the streets just as the romans did.
Today you will have time to spend as you wish on board your cruise ship, discovering all of its fantastic facilities. With so much to do, so many places to eat and drink and so many ways to unwind, you'll find that on your cruise holiday, the journey is just as enjoyable as exploring the destination.
The port city of La Spezia in Liguria is home to Italy's largest naval base. This provides a wealth of fascinating sites including the Technical Naval Museum, with its ship models and navigational instruments. The city's seafaring heritage is not all that the area has to offer however. The old town boasts beautiful winding streets and a wonderful atmosphere with its plentiful trattorias allowing visitors to experience "la dolce vita' and a taste of some of Liguaria's tastiest dishes.
The glamorous Cannes is your next stop along the way. Known to be the playground of the stars, with it's world famous film festival hosted every year, the city has now become synonymous with this lustrous and glitzy affair. Stroll the streets and see how the other half live, admiring liner sized yachts moored at the port and cars that would make James Bond envious. Cannes is not without its natural charms however. The bay and the harbour with islands just off the coast make for absolutely fabulous views. The old quarter known as Le Suquet provides charm and allure with its winding cobbled lanes lined with quaint local restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by while enjoying the fabulous Italian dishes on offer.
Next stop Monte Carlo! Synonymous with its upmarket casinos, super yacht lined harbour and the renowned Grand Prix motor race, one of the most glamourous sporting events there is. This is a truly impressive and plush place where both celebs and royalty rub shoulders. On the south side of the port there is a rocky outcrop known as Le Rocher which is home to the royal palace, as well as a rather charming little old town which feels a world away from Monte Carlo's skyscrapers and super yachts and is worth a visit for its quaint and contrasting atmosphere.
For those who have visited Majorca but never ventured beyond Palma Nova or Magaluf, a visit to Palma de Mallorca will be a real eye opener. The place is rich in culture and history with the stunning "Catedral de Mallorca" providing an astonishing backdrop to your days adventure. There are boundless amounts of galleries, restaurants, and bars speckled along the vibrant bohemian streets, all ready to be discovered.
