Set sail from Rome to Florence, where the birthplace of artistic giants will engulf your senses and stretch your mind at every turn. In Pisa, see the iconic leaning tower, then in Lecce, wander through the 25,000-seat Roman amphitheatre. Walk in the footsteps of Napoleon on Elba, cruise the Lavezzi Isles and the Maddalena Archipelago to Corsica, Spanish Menorca and Gibraltar. From the historic port of Malaga, enjoy an optional trip to the 13th-century Alhambra Palace, last Spanish capital of the Moors, or visit the Picasso Museum and take a panoramic tour of the city. Enter the mouth of the Guadalquivir River and cruise upstream through the Andalusian countryside to the heart of the beautiful and romantic city of Seville, which legend has it was founded by Hercules, for a spectacular finale that is small-ship cruising at its best.
