Day 1 Embark the m/v Tere Moana in Nice, France

The “Queen of the Côte d’Azur” and the second-largest city in France, Nice offers beautiful views of hilltop villages, Art Deco façades, and a stunning coastline along the blue-green Mediterranean Sea. You’ll embark The Moana here and enjoy time to settle into your stateroom before the ship sets sail this evening.

Day 2 Monte Carlo, Monaco

Ruled by the Grimaldi family since 1297, with only brief interruptions, the Principality of Monaco is the world’s second-smallest country (after the Vatican). Sandwiched between mountains and the sea, Monte Carlo is a district of the country and home of the famous Grand Casino. Monte Carlo’s steep and winding streets have been featured in numerous films, including Alfred Hitchcock’s “To Catch a Thief” starring Grace Kelly, who would become Princess Grace of Monaco upon her marriage to Rainier III in 1956. Besides the casino, attractions of this glamorous district include numerous museums, churches, monuments, and gardens.The Moana stays here overnight, allowing you to experience Monte Carlo at its liveliest: after dark.

Day 3 Villefranche, France

This morning, the captain charts a course to Villefranche, a charming resort town on France’s Côte d’Azur. On your port call here, perhaps you’ll stroll the narrow cobbled streets of the romantic Old Town … view the 16th century citadel … visit the 14th-century Chapelle Saint-Pierre (Saint Peter’s Chapel) and Église Saint-Michel (Saint Michael’s Church) … or follow the ancient Rue Obscura, a covered walkway near the waterfront. Or simply relax on sandy beaches or at the city’s terrace cafés.

Day 4 Portofino, Italy

Located on a peninsula in the Italian Riviera, this pretty, pastel resort and fishing village in the northern Italian region of Liguria is dominated by a 16th-century castle overlooking crystalline green waters filled with marine life.

Day 5 Porto Venere, Italy

Overlooking the Gulf of Poets in the northwestern Italian province of Liguria, Porto Venere was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, together with the nearby Cinque Terre villages, for its combination of scenic beauty and a traditional way of life that dates back 1,000 years. Admire the pastel-colored homes that line the picturesque waterfront, and narrow stairways and cobbled lanes lined with shops that radiate out from the waterfront. Visit the 12th-century Chiesa di San Lorenzo church and the 16th-century Castello Dorio, a fortified Genoese castle with manicured gardens and stunning views. Venture to Byron’s Grotto, where Lord Byron swam across the gulf to Lerici to visit his friend and fellow poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, in 1822. Or follow one of several hiking trails that lead out from the town.

Day 6 Florence (Livorno), Italy

The Moana’s mooring in Livorno provides easy access to Florence, the “Cradle of the Renaissance”, where magnificent artwork abounds in museums, palaces, cathedrals, and gardens. Also the capital of Tuscany, Florence is dominated by the massive Duomo, the world’s fourth-largest cathedral, whose giant dome was the largest in the world during the 15th century, when it was constructed. While here, admire masterpieces by such legendary artists as Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Donatello, Brunelleschi, Botticelli, Caravaggio, Rubens, Giotto, and so many others.

Day 7 Elba (Portoferraio), Italy

“The Pearl of the Tuscan Archipelago” is a beautiful island in the Tyrrhenian Sea that once was connected by a land bridge to Corsica, birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. It is better known today as the site of Napoleon’s exile after his abdication in 1814. The chief city on the island, Portoferraio, dates to the Etruscan civilization and offers many historic landmarks, as well as beautiful beaches.

Day 8 Disembark in Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

The heart of the ancient Roman empire and capital of modern Italy, Rome is one of the world’s great cultural centers, and an abundance of monuments, cathedrals, artistic masterpieces, and more reflect the city’s rich ancient, medieval, and Renaissance history. You’ll disembark The Moana after breakfast this morning in the port city for Rome, Civitavecchia .
