Set sail from Rome to Barcelona with the luxurious Ritz -Carlton Yacht Collection. Spend nine nights travelling from Italy to France and Spain, discovering history, culture and natural beauty across the ports of Livorno, Portofino, St Tropez, Toulon, Mahon and Barcelona. 

This cruise is the perfect way to pair a city break with a journey around the Mediterranean. After a two-night pre-cruise stay in Rome, you’ll set off on board your intimate and all-inclusive Ritz-Carlton yacht, Ilma, to explore an iconic coastline known for its scenic beauty and alluring culture.

First sailing to the beautiful Livorno, a city known for its excellent seafood, you can venture to the medieval city of Florence to delve into a wealth of Renaissance artworks and architecture. Or, you can visit other nearby ancient cities such as Pisa or Siena where you’ll find a myriad of medieval and gothic architecture.

Contrasting the old brick buildings of Livorno are the pastel-coloured buildings of Portofino. Explore the timeless charm of this picturesque coastal town, where the buildings are perched high on the tree-swathed cliffs and exquisite restaurants line the quaint streets.

Next, soak up the glamourous charisma of the South of France with a visit to St Tropez and Toulan. Relax in the laid-back atmosphere, where you’ll find inviting beaches and an excellent gastronomic scene.

An island of magnificent natural beauty, Menorca’s Mahon is the perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate after a week of exploring. Before ending your trip in the vibrant Barcelona, you can bask in the glorious heat on one of the beaches, stroll through the historic streets or indulge in a seafood dish that this city is known for.

While on board Ilma, you can bask in all-inclusive luxury for the entire week of your journey. With five restaurants, six bars and a wine vault, you can end your day with an exceptional dining experience. Not only will you enjoy a delicious meal paired with your favourite wine, but you can dine alfresco, surrounded by incredible views of the ocean and evolving scenery.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can enjoy watersports straight from the yacht. For more relaxed days, enjoy a shop in the on board boutique, or take to the observation lounge to relax as you watch the world pass by. A welcoming spa and gym are available, perfect for rejuvenating after a day spent exploring and walking or swimming in the Mediterranean sun.
