Seabourn's Mediterranean ports map


For those along its shores, the sea remains the heart of it all, an irresistible magnet drawing every gaze. Glimpse it shining from a sunlit piazza high on the Amalfi Coast, or glittering through a filigree of pines along the rocky Cap d’Antibes.

Explore the vibrant cities of Rome, Venice, Nice and Barcelona, richly layered in history and deeply rooted in the sea. Follow the winding corniches of Monte Carlo, stacked atop a harbor bristling with masts of elegant yachts. Above the beaches and brightly painted fishing boats along the Cote d’Azur and Costa del Sol, amphitheaters of whitewashed villas are all aligned to meet you as you arrive from the sea.
