Ah, life! I never got the chance to share my itinerary for my Mediterranean trip, which now dates back to May. Whoopsie. I had written these lines and completely forgot about them, sitting in my WordPress drafts. Well I think it’s never too late to
gloat share such a wonderful travel itinerary, especially when it involves art, hidden coves, French rosé wine, glorious sunshine, film stars and gelato, don’t you think? (It would also have been a shame not to publish the above photo, which took me way to look to stage…) Here are my better-late-than-never travel plans for our Spring Mediterranean adventures!
It’s finally time for a new adventure!! I am so pleased to say that in a few days I’ll be ticking some major items off the travel bucket list by going on a fabulous trip to the Mediterranean.
Starting in Nice on the Côte d’Azur, we’ll be traveling all over the region to Menton, Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, Juan les Pins and St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, indulging in the glorious French Riviera sunshine, a glass of crisp rosé in hand (or more realistically a gelato cone 😉 ). We’ll be playing paparazzi on the Croisette during the Cannes International Film Festival, retracing Jean Cocteau’s paintings all over the region and exploring lush gardens overlooking the sea. Le sigh.
Taking a train from Nice to Marseille, we’ll then embark on a week-long cruise aboard the MSC Armonia, with a wonderful itinerary. Ports of call include the Balearic island of Menorca, the islands of Malta, Sicily and Sardinia, and the Italian cities of Rome and Genoa, where we’ll be jetting off to Portofino to discover this Italian Riviera gem.
After this spectacular week of waking up in a different port every morning, we’ll disembark in Marseille to explore the city for a day, and then we’ll venture East to Cassis, to explore the Calanques National Park and then drive the famous coastal roads to St-Tropez.
You must really hate me by now so I’ll stop here. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for tons of photos from my trip, and stay tuned for articles on this blog.
