Western Mediterranean Cruises make for some of the most diverse and decadent holidays. Itineraries span two great continents, Europe and Africa, offering up some of the world’s most spectacular treasures. Western Mediterranean cruises cover Spain, France, and Italy, sailing as far as Morocco and Tunisia. These cruises are an art and history lover’s dream, with an abundance of rich culture on offer through the museums, galleries, landmarks, and huge variety in nature and cuisine.
The staggering beauty of this region has to be seen to be believed. From Barcelona’s Las Ramblas to the wine-making villages nestled in the French countryside, of all of Europe’s cruise regions, the Western Mediterranean has it all. Sea and sand, cosmopolitan cities, quaint towns and a sizzling warm climate, for the sun-seeker that wants to relax and unwind, or the history buff that wants to soak in the sights, this part of the Med does not disappoint.
The glamour of the Côte d’Azur seems to sparkle with possibilities. Scattered along the coast is a host of glittering towns and beach resorts, with endless pristine beaches and bars and boutique shops that just breathe charm and sophistication. The resorts in the French Riviera are famed for being star-studded and superbly high-end, and it’s not hard to see why. Sit at a sidewalk café in St. Tropez’s Old Port, and watch the superyachts holding the super-rich sail by. Explore the beautiful beaches of Nice and take a swim in the azure blue waters, enjoying some fresh seafood when you’ve worked up an appetite. Be sure to get a table facing the sea, as the views of the Mediterranean are magnificent.
The crowned capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is famed for its hustle and bustle. The vibrant beauty radiates through the city’s cafes, bars and boutique shops, with the Old City nestled in the heart of it all. A visit to Antoni Gaudi’s must-see Sagrada Familia should feature on any Barcelonan itinerary, where imposing Gothic spikes pair with smooth modern curves – you’ll soon see the architect’s heavy influence on the rest of the city. Next up, rest those tired feet with a taste of the local tapas and a cerveza grande, por favor! A Western Mediterranean cruise is a fantastic way to visit – on the approach you’re greeted by the stunning harbour views, and at the end of a long day of sightseeing, you can return to your luxury liner for a little R and R.
