Glitter & Glam of the Rivieras

The “Glitter & Glam of the Rivieras” itinerary will take her on a voyage from Barcelona, Spain, past the exotic coast of France and Monaco, to Rome, Italy. She’ll visit the prestigious Banyuls vineyards of Port Vendres, sail in the artisan harbor of Sanary-sur-Mer, and soak in the glamor of Monte Carlo and Cannes. Her ship, the Star Pride, will then sail into the charmingly chic Portofino, before heading to Portoferraio, on the tranquil island of Elba. The ship bears 106 suites, all outside with ocean views, and some with private verandas or French balconies. With 6 guest decks and a cruising speed of 15 knots, Nancy’s guaranteed a magical week exploring the West Mediterranean.

Highlights: 

  • Barcelona’s Festive Las Ramblas Quarter
  • Monte Carlo’s Royal Palace & Grand Casino
  • Portoferraio’s UNESCO Archipelago
  • Scenic hike to Santa Margherita in Portofino
  • Rome’s Trevi Fountain and Piazza Venezia
