Join us on this exclusive small ship voyage along the splendid coastlines of the French and Italian Rivieras and their stunning landscapes, ancient villages and idyllic islands that became a favorite retreat for artists, writers, nobility and gourmands. Experience the dynamic history of contending civilizations and their legacy—some of the world’s greatest art and architecture—and travel through the timeless cradle of the Renaissance between two great cultural capitals aboard the exclusively chartered small ship
m.s. Le Lyrial

Cruise from Rome to Barcelona with one port of call each day and opportunities to visit five UNESCO World Heritage sites on this unique itinerary featuring small, off-the-beaten-path destinations along with incredible legendary ports. Visit Carcassonne’s medieval French fortifications and the awe-inspiring Italian cliffside villages of the Cinque Terre. Experience the stylish glamour of St. Tropez, explore the legendary principality of chic Monaco, walk through historic Marseille and its vibrant sixth-century Vieux Port, enjoy Corsica’s ancient port of Bonifacio and choose to admire the Renaissance treasures of Florence or the historic Tuscan monuments of Lucca and Pisa.

The exclusively chartered, Five-Star m.s. Le Lyrial exemplifies the advantages of Five-Star, small-ship cruising: elegant accommodations, an exclusive itinerary carefully crafted with specially arranged excursions, the ability to dock in small ports of call inaccessible to larger vessels, and no long lines for tender and touring. The state-of-the-art m.s. Le Lyrial features only 110 Suites and Staterooms with distinctive French sophistication.

This program is a great travel value, including all shore excursions and complimentary alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages aboard ship. It will sell out quickly, so book now while space and Early Booking Savings are still available!
