Lisbon /  Gibraltar / Casablanca / Granada /  Valencia /  Barcelona  /  Marseille  /  Monte Carlo  /  Florence & Pisa  /  Rome
From $3,999 per person (double occupancy)
Uncover the cultural and historical riches along the coasts of Portugal, Morocco, Spain, France, Monaco, and Italy while cruising aboard the new and regal Riviera of Oceania Cruises.

Then it’s on to legendary Casablanca, a fascinating Moroccan city blessed with a scenic coastline, and Spain, beginning with Granada and its renowned Alhambra, followed by the coastal city of Valencia, home to both medieval and futuristic architecture. Continue exploring Spain in Barcelona, where Antoni Gaudí’s unique architectural structures grace the city, before sailing for France and the colorful city of Marseille, gateway to the Provençal countryside.

Next up is Monte Carlo, where a drive down the Grand Corniche offers stunning views, then onward to Italy with a visit to Florence, a Renaissance town steeped in history, art, and architecture, where wonders lie at every turn. Amid bustling markets, lush gardens, stunning architecture, and world-renowned museums, this trip will create a colorful European mosaic you won’t soon forget.
