Cruising Through Tuscany and Provence

Map View
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.

Piazza Santo Spirito, 16/R, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy
I love Florence: it's one of my favorite cities in Italy and in the world. But, the downside is that it can get ridiculously crowded. In fact, the last time I visited it was so crowded on the 'main side' of Florence, where the Duomo and all of the...
