Fly to Barcelona from Dublin and set sail on the MSC Grandiosa for an unforgettable Mediterranean Cruise.
Barcelona – Spain’s second city, and the self-confident capital and port of Catalunya – vibrates with life, and there’s certainly not another city in the country to touch it for sheer style, looks or energy. A holiday in Barcelona can start with the Ramblas, and then dive straight into the medieval nucleus of the city, the Barri Gòtic.
But there are plenty of other central old-town neighbourhoods to explore too, from La Ribera – home to the celebrated Museu Picasso – to funky El Raval, where cool bars, restaurants and boutiques have mushroomed in the wake of the striking contemporary art museum, MACBA.
Marseille is the most renowned and populated metropolitan area in the country after Paris and Lyon. Particularly good in the afternoon is the north (Le Panier) side, where the terraces are sunnier and the views better. The best view of the Vieux Port is from the Palais du Pharo, on the headland beyond Fort St-Nicolas, or, for a wider angle, from Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, the city’s Second Empire landmark atop the La Garde hill.
Genoa is marvellously eclectic, vibrant and full of rough-edged style. Indeed “La Superba” (The Superb), as it was known at the height of its authority as a Mediterranean superpower, boasts more zest and intrigue than all the surrounding coastal resorts put together.
From Naples visit the breath-taking Amalfi coastline, taste sun-drenched locally-made Limoncello or jet off to the glamourous Isle of Capri. Visit Pompeii and Vesuvius. Sit and absorb the atmosphere of Sorrento or stroll along the narrow streets where you can shop and dine. Eat some gelato as you take in the stunning views of it's clifftop location over the Bay of Naples.
The UNESCO-protected port of Valletta, the capital of the island of Malta, is one of the must-see stops in the Med. The over 300 monuments rising in little more than half a square kilometre make this a place with one of the greatest density of historical attractions to visit during a cruise, not mentioning other attractions such as its beaches, seaside locales and restaurants.
