Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK to Barcelona

After beginning your trip in style with included airport lounge access you’ll board your flight from the UK to Barcelona. Take the chance to explore one of the most stunning cities in Europe, where you'll be greeted by the world-famous Sagrada Família and Gaudí's Park Güell with fresh tapas, seafood markets and intimate Gothic streets round every cobbled corner. Discover the art heritage of the city with visits to the Miro Foundation and Picasso Museum before you embark the Regent Seven Seas Explorer. Here, you’ll be welcomed to your opulent mahogany suite and luxury marble-stone bathroom before enjoying many of the amenities on board, including a sprawling pool deck and heated whirlpools, chandelier-adorned lounges and several gourmet dining options on an all-inclusive basis. Perhaps sample the Pan-Asian gastronomy of Pacific Rim or enjoy the intimate candlelight of Sette Mari at Le Veranda before a post-dinner cocktail in one of the many ship’s many lounge bars. Accompanied by an orchestra during dinners and drinks, your stay on this ship will consist of optimum comfort and luxury.

Day 2

This port city is a metropolis of contrasts, with long stretches of beach and water-lined parks sitting alongside futuristic structures and museums. Visit the historic Central Holy Chalice before comparing the architecture of modern sites such as the City of Arts and Sciences, the largest scientific and cultural complex in Europe. The Seven Seas Explorer offers a plethora of excursions to book to see the best the city has to offer, from panoramic tours and bike rides through downtown Valencia to wine tasting and exploring medieval caves.

Day 3
Palma de Mallorca

Today you’ll disembark to explore Palma. Market-lined public squares, medieval courtyards and waterfronts framed by honey-coloured stone are dwarfed by the imposing Gothic Cathedral that dominates the city. Palma is perfectly explored with a walking tour through the city, or hop on a vintage train to the dramatic scenery of Soller deep in the picturesque Sierra de Tramutana Valley. This evening, perhaps enjoy some boutique shopping or take an evening dip in the infinity pool before an exquisite dinner, perhaps in the chic Chartreuse, evocative of a Parisian fine dining restaurant.

Day 4

Reaching France, you’ll anchor in the canal traverses of Sete before spending the day in spectacular Carcassone, where an enormous citadel looks over miles of green hills – it’s true French countryside at its finest. Alternatively, see the fortified medieval walls of Aigues Mortes, or discover the architecture of charming Montpellier, all of which can be arranged with tours organised by the ship.

Day 5

Today you'll reach Provence, a region of emblematic lavender fields, vineyards and olive groves. The province's largest city, Marseilles, whilst not boasting the classic French beauty of some of its neighbouring cities, should not be underplayed, with a picturesque Old Quarter and boundless lively cafes and shops. Explore it with a walking or biking tour where you'll pass markets, cliffs and museums, or rent your own car for a few hours to discover the charms of the surrounding Provençal countryside. And be sure to find time in the day to indulge in that ever so French pastime, a taste of some of the world's best cheese and wine.

Stay: Seven Seas Explorer

Meals: B L D

Day 6
Monte Carlo

The glitz of Monte Carlo enchants with its larger-than-life yachts, casinos and celebrities, but take the chance to explore a little deeper with a scenic drive through the mesmerising French Riviera, or a stroll along the avenues of glittering Cannes. Of course, a few hours relaxing on Monaco’s boat-lined sandy alcoves may not go amiss, either. The glamour continues as you re-board the ship – enjoy an evening in the opulent Constellation Theatre, where you'll sit in cabaret-style seats with a post-dinner cocktail while enjoying an enthralling musical.

Stay: Seven Seas Explorer

Meals: B L D

Day 7

Reaching Italy today, you'll be greeted by the scene of characterful Portofino. The village perhaps epitomizes European coastal beauty, where coloured houses lie unevenly along the turquoise waters, framed by lush green hills. Its small harbour is busy but enjoy a drink on the waterfront and soak up the atmosphere, before perhaps embarking on a walking tour through the charms that lie further inland. Magnificent villas, market squares and olive groves set the scene here, while a cruise along the Italian Riviera will see you passing forested inlets and picturesque fishing villages.   

Stay: Seven Seas Explorer

Meals: B L D

Day 8

Renaissance and UNESCO-listed World Heritage site Florence awaits you today, a place of world-class museums, 16th century architectural wonders and Tuscan gastronomy of a wonderfully high standard. Explore the elegant cobbled streets with a walking or bicycle tour and there's even the chance to explore music legend Andrea Bocelli's recording studio. A trip to the hills of Lucca offers cycling tours through the charming Tuscan countryside, and there are, of course, wine tasting tours to sample some of that famous Italian grape. And don’t miss an excursion to Pisa that showcases much more than simply the leaning tower, with palazzos and medieval wonders peppering the city. Enjoy your last evening on board with a sundowner and sunset on deck before an Italian supper, or, of course, any other cuisine, with new-found friends or just you and your loved one.

Stay: Seven Seas Explorer

Meals: B L D

Day 9
Rome to UK

Your final day sees you in Italy's spectacular capital, a city with a romantic past, inspiring art heritage and historic cityscape. Disembark the ship and enjoy a few hours exploring St Peter’s Basilica, strolling by the Trevi Fountain or discovering buzzing squares, before a transfer to the airport for your flight back to the UK. 

Meals: B
