Day 2 - Barcelona, Spain
Up arrival in Spain, we embark on city tour to learn about this historical city. After, we check-in to our hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure.
The capital of Catalonia, and one of its provinces, Barcelona, is a place of intense history, where you can find yourself strolling down the medieval streets of the Barri Gotic. It’s a city designed to delight the senses: visit other-worldly Modernista churches like Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia, or treat yourself at a street side cafe to Patatas Bravas or a Passion Fruit Mojito.
Day 3 - Embarkation on the Norwegian Epic
After breakfast, enjoy Barcelona on your own before we transfer to the pier and embark on the Norwegian Epic. The Epic departs at 6PM. Once settled onboard, we get together for a Welcome Meeting and Cocktail.
Day 4 - At Sea
Day at sea to enjoy all the Norwegian Epic has to offer. Try your luck at the Casino, enjoy a refreshing swim or stroll the decks and people-watch - just to name a few ideas!
Day 5 - Naples/Pompeii
Cruise to Naples, located on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, a city rich in history. A tour around Naples’ grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles in the old center will take you back centuries. Pompeii is not too far either, a dashing city which boasts diverse cultural offerings and charming streets.
Day 6 - Civitavecchia/Rome
Endless adventures await in Rome. With two and a half thousand years of history, art and culture, it is no wonder Rome is one of the most visited cities on the planet. Gaze at the masterpieces of the Vatican or walk into the past with visits to ancient relics, historic monuments and legendary museums. Or people-watch while sipping on an espresso in a quaint cafe.
Day 7 - Livorno (Florence & Pisa)
How lucky to visit the Tuscan region, Florence & Pisa, resplendent in art and history. What’s even more fortunate is that all the main attractions in Florence are centrally located for the perfect walking tour. See Santa Croce, Piazza del Duomo and Michelangelo’s David.
Day 8 - Cannes, France
Drive up Suquet Hill for a view of the city, sea and Lerins Island - fabulous dahling! How many rich and famous can you spot, walk the palm-lined promenade de la Croisette and count. The French Riviera at its best…the International Film Festival calls this home.
Day 9 - Palma Majorca, Spain
On the one hand, this city, founded by the Romans some 2,100 years ago, is replete with (literally) wall-to-wall history and architectural splendor. You can journey back in time and wander the mazes of alleyways and cobblestone paths that surround the Gothic cathedral. On the other hand, Palma is bustling with life, showcasing the island’s best restaurants, shops, nightlife and a vibrant art scene.
