Much of Europe was founded around the influential and powerful port cities of the Mediterranean, forming a collection of ancient capitals and settlements.

This tour of the great civilisations of the Mediterranean introduces you to ancient Greece, historic Rome, stunning Monte Carlo and Gaudi’s Barcelona.

This 15-day itinerary explores some of the most influential settlements and thousands of years of history.

Starting in incomparable Barcelona with its unique skyline and laid-back atmosphere, Scenic Eclipse journeys through beautiful Monte Carlo and Corsica.

Then it is on to Rome where Scenic guests can visit Vatican City and enjoy its religious significance, and then on to Pompeii for a sobering experience viewing the city destroyed by a volcanic eruption 2,000 years ago. And where better to end this cultural tour than Athens? The birthplace of democracy, philosophy and Western civilisation.
