Ah, Athens. The birthplace of democracy and western civilisation, with the crowning glory, the Acropolis, perched atop its plateau. Come and lose yourself in the twisting streets of the ancient Plaka district.
Vying for your attention in Catalonia’s visually stunning capital are the magnificent medieval buildings of the lively Gothic quarter and the exotic creations of architect Antoni Gaudi.
The best views are reserved by those who arrive by sea. The white battlements of Bellver Castle sit on a hill overlooking the towering cathedral that took 400 years to build.
From La Spezia, which provides ready access to the Cinque Terre region, you can travel to Florence and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Also, enjoy La Spezia's spectacular collection of cathedrals.
In Mykonos, sunlight reflects off hundreds of whitewashed houses, framed by the famous Venetian windmills. Enter its maze of twisting alleys, originally designed to confuse pirate invaders.
If ever there was a place to return to and delve deeper, it’s Rome. Explore hidden piazzas, opulent baroque churches, and classical ruins. Not to mention the best of Italian fashion.
Picture yourself sipping hot chocolate at the legendary Caffé Florian on Venice’s fashionable Piazza San Marco, or taking a scenic canal ride by gondola through the mysterious waterways.
Santorini is a place of almost mythological beauty. After anchoring, ascend 895ft to the capital Fira - reachable by donkey, cable car, or a flight of 600 steps!
Combining age-old history with pristine beaches, fascinating ancient history and passionate energy, Greece is always a popular holiday spot. While Athens is a classic choice for a healthy dose of history, it’s hard to resist the lure of the white-wash houses and azure waters of the Greek Islands. Best of all, on a Celebrity Cruises holiday, you can do both.
Ports: Athens (Piraeus), Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu, Katakolon and Rhodes.
They say Italy is the home of the good life, but it’s an even better one if you can experience by a Celebrity Cruise.

With sun-soaked beaches, salsa dancing and sangria, it’s hard to fault life in Spain. The country and its beloved Canary Islands are the stuff of holiday dreams.

Those wanting to dig a little deeper though will be rewarded with the vibrant architecture of Barcelona, incredible UNESCO sites of Ibiza and the mouth-watering food everywhere.

With much of the country’s buzz and beauty lining its coastline, Croatia is an ideal destination to discover by cruise.
