The Mediterranean is at the top of every traveller’s must-see list, and for good reason. Each destination — from Amalfi’s colourful cliffside to the glamorous seaside town of St Tropez — is like stepping into a heavenly postcard immersed in history, culture, and (most importantly) great food. And the best way to experience it all is by sea.
1. Walking tour in St. Tropez, France
Positioned on the coastline of the French Riviera, the petite port of St. Tropez is one of the most glamorous resort towns in Europe. Fishing boats and luxury yachts share the harbour, whilst beautiful pink and yellow cafes, restaurants, galleries, and boutiques line the streets. On a shore excursion, opt to explore the dazzling seafront promenade with a walking tour through the city.
2. High-speed joy ride in Valetta, Malta
Steeped in history, Valetta is the enchanting capital city of the UNESCO archipelago Malta. And the best way to explore Valetta’s seaside surrounds is via powerboat. A short distance from the Seabourn ship, board a powerboat for a high-speed ride to the unspoiled islands of Gozo (also known as Calypso, the moniker referenced in Homer’s Odyssey) and Comino. Before returning to the boat, dive into the crystal-clear sea for an unforgettable swim or snorkel.
3. Discover Pompeii ruins in Italy
Located in the Campania region, the Amalfi coast is brimming with lively towns, charming villages, and historical sites. From Amalfi, enjoy a scenic coastal drive to the foot of Mount Vesuvius, the infamous volcano that erupted in 79 A.D. and engulfed the thriving Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Explore the ancient archaeological sites on a guided tour.
4. Drive the coastline in Monte Carlo, Monaco
Illustrious for its yacht-filled harbour, Formula One racetrack and world-famous Café de Paris Casino, Monte Carlo is synonymous with glitz and glam. Nestled along the French Riviera, the tiny enclave is the perfect place to people watch. Or, on a shore excursion, embark on a scenic drive through Nice, Beaulieu and Eze-sur-Mer to discover the best that the French Riviera has to offer.
5. Paella and wine tasting in Valencia, Spain
Savour the taste of three unique paellas—Spain’s most popular dish—paired with local wine at a Valencian restaurant. But first, watch a cooking demonstration to take home tips on how to prepare paella in traditional Valencia style (hint: the rice is cooked on a wood fire using orange wood). A food-centric excursion gives you the knowledge (and recipes) to reimagine your Mediterranean experiences on home soil.
