The Spanish Riviera and Côte d'Azur have a special allure that has attracted visitors from the Phoenicians to Picasso. Sail these stunning coastlines aboard our most popular sailing ship, the elegant Sea Cloud II/i>. Experience the archaeological treasures of 3,000-year-old Cádiz before embarking. Call at the British outpost of Gibraltar to discover its military history and famous wild monkeys, and from Málaga head inland to Granada to admire the enchanting Alhambra. In Valencia, see the UNESCO-listed historic quarter and futuristic City of Arts and Sciences complex. Stop at the often-overlooked ancient city of Tarragona, known as the Rome of the Iberian Peninsula, with its triumphal arches, aqueduct, and a Roman Forum. See the architectural highlights of Marseille before disembarking in Nice.
Optional prelude in Seville; optional postlude in Nice and the French Riviera.
