In the summer of 2013 we cruised the Mediterranean on Holland America's Noordam from Barcelona to Rome. This was the itinerary we were supposed to have. Instead of La Goulette we had a stop in Cagliari, Italy.

In Barcelona we were very impressed by Gaudi's Sagrada Familia...

... and Parc Guel. We loved the beautiful mosaics and the view when you walk up in the park.
Another highlight, little over an hour from Barcelona, is Montserrat.

Palma de Mallorca is so beautiful.

A favourite in Marseille is the Hospice de la Vieille Charite.

In Pisa of we visited the Field of Miracles, but we also walked through the rest of the city to the Piazza dei Cavalieri and the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Spina.
Great views in Cagliari, Italy.
Palermo was nice, but very crowded.
In Naples we hiked up mount Vesuvius...
...and we enjoyed Pompei
We ended with an couple of days in Rome.
