Tuscany and Provence: two of the world's most beautiful regions, known for their wine, their food and their beautiful art, architecture and culture. On an 8 night cruise aboard the Azamara Journey, I was able to experience the best of what these regions have to offer, leaving from Rome and visiting Florence, Lucca, Livorno and Elba in Italy; Monte Carlo, Monaco; and St. Tropez and majestic St. Paul-de-Vence, France. I loved leaving my bags in one place while getting to explore so many gems.

A Room with a View on the Azamara Journey

Each morning on board the Azamara Journey, a boutique, luxury cruising experience, I would awake to a knock on the door: my room service. But instead of breakfast in bed, I would have my breakfast on my gorgeous balcony, overlooking the view of whatever port city in Tuscany or Provence that we were in for the day.

I really enjoyed Azamara, a more destination-focused company with unique ports each day. And, I especially liked being able to leave my luggage in one place while I got to explore 7 new towns in France and Italy- I found a new favorite way to get a taste of some favorite new places!
