With the Costa Diadema through the Mediterranean Sea
From Savona via Marseille to Barcelona, Palme de Mallorca, Palermo and Civitaveccia back to Savona – a different city every day without having to repack your suitcase.
Enjoy the Mediterranean climate in the Mediterranean and explore varied ports with different shore excursions. Look forward to culinary delights aboard your cruise ship.
The ship has been sailing for the Costa shipping company since 2014 and offers space for around 5,000 passengers over a length of 306 meters. Countless onboard activities, stylish bars and gourmet restaurants, and a spacious spa area make the cruise an unforgettable experience.
The city is the home port of the ship and is therefore the starting and ending point of the cruise. Due to its location, the city was important for trade even in the Middle Ages. Savona, with about 62,000 inhabitants, is the third largest city in Liguria on the Italian Riviera.
The second largest city in France is located in the south of the country and is a popular tourist destination. Marseille has a long history dating back to 600 BC.
The most important port city in France offers many sights that are best explored by HopOn-HopOf bus. An absolute highlight is the cathedral Sainte-Marie-Majeure.
The origin of the city dates back to Roman times. Barcelona offers cultural diversity via historical buildings to modern architecture.
Antoni Gaudi is one of the most famous sons of the Catalan capital. His art (e.g. Park Güell) can be admired throughout the city.
From the port you can take a shuttle to the center to explore on your own. Visiting the Rambla, the most famous street in Barcelona, with numerous stores, street musicians, acrobats, cafes and restaurant is a must.
Likewise, a visit to the Sagrada Familia must not be missed.
For soccer enthusiasts, a guided tour of Europe’s largest soccer stadium, Camp Nou, with room for 99,000 spectators, is an absolute highlight.
Palma de Mallorca:
After a short bus ride you can get directly from the port to the center. The core of the old town is the walled cathedral. The dimensions of the building are impressive. The rosette has a diameter of 13.3 meters and is one of the largest in the world. From there you have a wonderful view of the harbor basin. The narrow streets with their small stores invite you to take a leisurely stroll.
Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the Spanish Mediterranean island of Mallorca and the seat of the autonomous government of the Balearic Islands.
The Sicilian capital, known as the bridge to Africa, is best explored on your own. The center is within easy walking distance and many attractions are close together. In any case, you must visit the cathedral of Monreale and a detour to an Italian café in the pedestrian zone should not be missed. After that, a walk to the Norman Palace is recommended. There is a beautiful park with palm trees.
Civitavecchia is the largest cruise port in the Mediterranean with 2.6 million passengers. Most guests take a day trip from here to Rome, 76 km away.
With all its sights like the Colosseum, Saint Peter’s Cathedral, the Fountain of Trevi, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps and many countless other attractions, Rome is always worth a visit.
For those who want something quieter, the free port shuttle can take you to the center of Civitavecchia.
