7 Night Cruise sailing from Monte Carlo to Barcelona aboard Azamara Quest.
After beginning your voyage amidst the glitz and glam of Monte-Carlo, the world’s second smallest country, it’s hard to believe it just keeps getting better from there. But just wait. What do you do in Cannes when there is no film festival to attend? See a French film, perhaps. There is no better way to feel the culture of a country than seeing a film in its native tongue. Then wander the famous La Croisette, drop into the casino and gamble until it’s time for a nightclub. Jimmy’z, discotheque des stars, doesn’t even open until 11 p.m., so it’s a good thing the ship stays overnight. The next day, a beach on the Côte d’Azur is quite the cure.
Knowing that the next destination is Saint-Tropez makes it a bit easier to leave. The yachts of the One Percent, beaches of Brigitte Bardot, shopping for everything from lavender to Lanvin – this is the heart of the French Riviera. C’est magnifique.
From there, sail to the heart of the Costa Brava, the Wild Coast, Palamós, Spain. See the Palamós Fishing Museum, an intriguing little place that explores, well, fishing. Then, for even more intrigue, the Dalí Theatre-Museum, Salvatore Dalí’s last great work. In his own words, “at the centre of the dome of the Dali museum… the new, unsuspected and hallucinatory world of Surrealism.” Es magnifico.
Finally, another overnight, this time in the beautiful old city of Valencia, where you can visit the new City of Arts and Sciences. Or take the high-speed AVE train to Madrid, before ending the voyage with an overnight in Barcelona.
Highlights of this cruise:
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Monte-Carlo is a place with a reputation that’s far bigger than its mere 0.76 square miles. It’s the kind of place where professional athletes, royals, socialites, and Bond villains (or the actors who play them) rub elbows while searching for elusive lady luck. Come prepared to be amazed by the opulence, by the breathtaking beautiful surroundings, and for some of the finest people watching this side of the Atlantic.
The Grand Casino is not to be missed, even for non-gamblers. Let it ride, bet it all on black, or simply marvel at the decadence of your luxurious surroundings.
Not into burning money? How about burning rubber? The prestigious Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix race has been held here since 1929. Get the authentic experience by renting a performance car to take you for a spin around the route, if you’re not here to see the real thing.
After your thrill ride, take a walk through the medieval village, known as “The Rock” in the heart of Monte-Carlo. And if you happen to end up in France, don’t worry. Simply cross the street and you’ll be back across the border faster than you can say “jackpot”.
Lights, camera, Cannes! Perhaps best known for the eponymous film festival that happens ever year, this charming port has plenty more to see than just celebrities and socialites. (Though, keep your eyes peeled because you never know who might be driving those Ferraris and Maseratis!)
Get ready for your close-up with a stroll along Le Promenade de la Croisette, the place to see and been seen in Cannes. Find the perfect pair of oversized sunglasses in one of the many luxury boutiques (Prada, anyone?) and then sit back and people watch with a glass of rosé at a chic waterfront café.
To see more of this seaside paradise, head to Le Suquet (the old town) to traverse winding cobblestone streets and zigzagging staircases. Gourmands will want to head for rue Meynardiers for shops carrying delicacies like creamy Brie and colorful macarons. The street also leads to Marché Forville, a covered market, where you’ll find local fig jam, charcuterie, and fresh flowers to tempt your senses.
The popular resort town of Alcudia is located on the northern end of the island of Mallorca, off the east coast of Spain, and combines the best of Roman and Moorish historic influences with modern-day activities and adventures.
The old town of Alcudia is surrounded by a medieval wall and is very well-preserved, with structures dating back to the 13th century, while throughout the rest of Alcudia, there are a variety of great restaurants, bars, shops, and museums. The 14-kilometer beach that stretches along the harborfront is ideal for watersports like swimming, parasailing and jet-skiing, or simply sitting back and enjoying the sights with an ice-cold cerveza.
The largest wetland area in the Balearic Islands—S’Albufera Natural Park—is also wonderful for a different kind of view-plain, with over 250 different bird species.
Old World charm meets modern architectural genius in Valencia. Gothic riches abound in the palaces and mansions of a 15th century golden age. The Cathedral has a more recent, and opulent, baroque facade, and the Silk Exchange sports an exterior resembling a medieval fortress and a main hall filled with palm-tree-shaped columns and enigmatic carvings.
Prepare to be stunned by the innovative and avant-garde buildings of the new millennium. The City of Arts and Sciences, by world-famous architect Santiago Calatrava, is a dazzling cultural complex set in a sunken park, the likes of which you have never seen before.
Dynamic Barcelona is all about architecture, from the magnificent medieval buildings of the Gothic Quarter to the Modernist movement typified by the work of Antoni Gaudi. Though his materials were stone and metal, his forms were organic, awash in curves, swirls, and colors. His masterpiece is the amazing Church of the Sagrada Familia, colossal and as yet unfinished, though construction began in 1882. A contemporary contribution to the scene is Ricardo Bofill's post modernist National Theater of Catalonia, an imaginative combination of classical and modern design, with a greenhouse-like lobby.
