Starting from Cote d’Azur
Cote d’Azur, also called the French Riviera, stretches from Marseille to the border with Italy. This southern region is attractive because of its mild climate, warm sea, and picturesque nature. The region includes Nice, Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Toulon, small villages between them, and the Principality of Monaco.
Toulon has a perfect location between the sea and the mountains. 584 high mount Faron rises above the city. You can get to the top by cable car. The view is magnificent — you can see the harbor and the Saint-Mandriere peninsula. In the city center, there is the main square with the Town Hall. There are many classic French buildings in the area. One of the main attractions of the city is the Royal Tower built in the 15th century. This is a round fort that is partially submerged in the sea.
San Remo is called the «City of Flowers.» There are many greenhouses here, and flower fragrances will accompany you everywhere. Visit Alfred Nobel’s villa and check out the San Remo Casino, which was built in 1905 and is still operational. And the real pearl of the city is the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, or the Russian Church, designed by architect Schusev.
Elba Island is the third largest Italian island after Sicily and Sardinia. The island is part of the Tuscany region. One of the famous pages in the history of the island is the stay of Napoleon Bonaparte since 1814. The Medici fortress welcomes guests who arrive to the island from the sea. The fortress consists of four levels of fortress walls. The main city of the island is Portoferraio. Here, in addition to beautiful churches and other architectural structures, there is a museum that exhibits things related to Napoleon.
Rome was a sea power since its founding. The first port was founded here in the 7th century BC at the mouth of the Tiber River in the town of Ostia. At the beginning of the second millennium, Rome needed a new large port and, on the orders of Trajan Emperor, it was built not far from his villa. The port was later named Civitavecchia — the Ancient City — and since then has served as the sea gate of Rome. The cradle of civilization — Rome — needs no introduction. Pantheon, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain — these are just a few of the attractions that everyone should see.
We will finish our crossing in Naples
Naples is a city in the shadow of Vesuvius. It is one of the most controversial, and at the same time, the most interesting cities in Italy. Naples has dirty streets, baroque churches, and unique museums. The historic city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
