A glamorous retreat for artists, nobility, and gourmands, choose your small-ship cruise along the Italian and French rivieras en route from Rome to Barcelona. Along the Côte d’Azur, visit historic Marseilles, Nice’s Old Town, and chic Monaco. See the cliff-side villages of Italy’s Cinque Terre, the Renaissance treasures of Florence, or the Tuscan cities of Pisa and Lucca, and Corsica’s Bonifacio.
