Live La Vie En Rose

La belle France, with its lush landscapes, romantic cities, and world-class cuisine — embark on an immersive journey featuring a mix of marquee and “hidden gem” ports for truly in-depth exploration and discovery. Experience the style and allure of French culture when you spend seven days sailing along its breathtaking coast. Begin your journey in the cosmopolitan masterpiece that is Barcelona, indulging in historically rich art and architecture around every corner. You’ll want a few days to settle into the lifestyle, experiencing the city like a local before we set sail.

Wake up the day after boarding to the charming red roofs, stone structures, and stunning vineyards perched on rocky cliffs above Porte-Vendres. Find delight in the maritime culture of Sète with a late stay. Take a walk along the canals of “the Venice of Languedoc” and settling in for a locally sourced seafood meal. Next is your second late-night (of three in a row!) in Marseilles, where you’ll be whisked away by the Capucin district and its North African souks and shops. Another late stay awaits in St. Tropez — a beach lover’s paradise. Then, set sail for Cannes, famous for its self-titled film festival and beloved for its chic boutiques, seaside splendor, and winding cobblestone streets.

Next, colorful buildings, palm-lined boulevards, and rich turquoise waters await with an overnight stay in Nice. Head for the heart of the city to the picturesque Place Rosetti to visit the cathédrale Saine-Réparate and the world-famous Fennochios’s ice cream and sorbet shop. After dark, the square becomes an open air-dance club complete with dramatic lighting that casts a magical glow on the ancient cobblestones. The following morning, arrive in Ajaccio — Napoléon Bonaparte’s birthplace and the capital of the island of Corsica — brimming with history, art, market delicacies, and apothecaries.

Finally, complete your journey in Rome, the always enchanting Eternal City will captivate you — no matter how many times you visit.
