Rome - Hotel Stay
Fly to Rome for a three night stay to discover the Eternal City – made all the easier with two tours included in your holiday. The Hop on Hop off bus is the easiest way to travel through history and visit all the great monuments of ancient Rome. Plus, you’ll enjoy a walking tour of Rome’s historical centre that takes in the Trevi fountain, the Pantheon and the Basilica of St. Peter.
Florence - Hotel Stay
The capital of the Tuscany region is an achingly romantic city of rivers, bridges and Renaissance art and architecture often described as an open-air museum. Some of the city’s most iconic sights are the Duomo, a cathedral with a striking terracotta-tiled dome, the illustrious Ponte Vecchio, rambling Forte di Belvedere and Piazzale Michelangelo which boasts panoramic views of the beautiful city and the Arno River.
Genoa - Hotel Stay
You travel by train to Genoa, the capital of the Liguria region in northwest Italy. A compelling city rich in history, in 2004 it was named the European Capital of Culture and as you follow the intimate, cobblestone lanes and medieval alleyways, you’ll soon understand why.
Genoa - Embark Costa Fortuna
Today you’ll embark the charming Costa Fortuna for your cruise. This comfortable and elegant ship is inspired by great Italian figures, with themed lounges and models of famous works of art. With a range of dining options and a huge range of entertainment, you can guarantee a cruise holiday of a lifetime on board Costa Fortuna.
Infused with maritime spirit, Marseille is the second-largest city in France. Explore the bohemian Cours Julien lined with bars, music venues, galleries and markets; or visit the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde. Occupying the highest point of Marseille, the basilica is the most visited building in Marseille.
A chic and cosmopolitan city, here you could visit Las Ramblas, the walkway at the heart of the city, gaze up at Gaudi’s masterpiece La Sagrada Familia, sample some traditional tapas or feel the sand between your toes on the sun drenched beaches.
Valencia is a picturesque resort known for its pavement cafes, parties and paella. The old city holds the Valencia Cathedral, where you can climb the octagonal Miguelete Bell Tower to see sweeping views. In the new town you’ll see the ultramodern ‘City of Arts and Sciences’ with its soaring glass palaces.
Evening dining is one of the big events on the Costa Fortuna and you can enjoy your formal meal in fine style in the sophisticated splendour of the Michelangelo and Raffaello Restaurants, with daily specials displaying the very best that European cuisine can offer. More relaxed dining options are also on offer.
Immerse yourself in Rome’s ancient heart and explore the expanse of St Peter’s Square, before walking in the footsteps of Ancient Romans at the Forum. While it’s famed for historic treasures, Rome is a bustling metropolis of modern art and culture.
From here you can explore the beautiful Cinque Terre – five tiny fishing villages tucked way on a remote part of the Italian Riveria. Their perfectly-preserved pastel coloured buildings cling to the rugged coastline of the Italian Riviera and offer sweeping sea views. These small coastal communities seem almost completely cut off from the surrounding countryside which is overflowing with vineyards and olive groves.
Genoa - Disembark Costa Fortuna
Today you’ll arrive back in Genoa where your cruise ends and you’ll disembark for your flight home.
