P&O Cruises have really raised the bar with Azura. With the Verona and Venezia restaurants, you'll find the flexibility of freedom dining, meaning you will always be able to sit and enjoy excellent cuisine throughout the day. The poolside grill is also available for an al fresco alternative, as is the poolside pizzeria. In the Sindhu fine dining restaurant, you'll find Indian cuisine with a modern twist and a creative menu which will both inspire and delight.
To help wash all these tasty treats down, TV's Olly Smith has helped put together the Glass House Wine bar and restaurant, where you'll be able to enjoy the signature menu, with a different specially-selected wine paired with each course. Whether you are new to wine drinking or a dedicated wine lover, you'll find that with Olly's guidance the world of fine wines is deliciously easy to navigate.

Day 3: Civitavecchia for Rome
The ship arrives at Civitavecchia port in Rome.
Civitavecchia, a former Etruscan port, is the seaport for Rome. And what about it? Everything here reflects the glorious power of a people who ruled the world. Located in cove, protected to the north by Mignone and south by the Marangone, the Civitavecchia port was built on the Tyrrhenian coast in Etruscan times and still preserves traces of this history. In particular, the Michelangelo fort and the old town with its 9th-century walls bear witness to the splendour of a medieval past. We have to take advantage of this stop to visit Rome, the grandiose capital with its world-famous monuments: the Forum, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Trajan's column, St Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, Piazza Venezia, the Spanish Steps and so much more.
Not to be missed: The majestic Cathedral of St Francis of Assisi and The Fort Michelangelo, The Rocca, an impenetrable fortress.
Day 4: Livorno for Florence or Pisa
Founded in the 16th century by the Grand Dukes of Tuscany - the Medici Family, Livorno remains a busy port and town. Its centre, which is walkable from the port, has some pretty bars, cafes and chic shops but most of Livornos cruise visitors head straight for Pisa, Florence, or the Tuscan towns of Lucca and Siena. You may be surprised to find that the recently restored Leaning Tower is just one of many towers in Pisa and that elegant Florence is compact enough to be walkable. With the Arno river running through it, you should be able to keep your bearings fairly easily as you visit the Uffizi Gallery and cross the gold and silver merchants-lined Ponte Vecchio on your way round the many attractions of this startlingly beautiful Renaissance city.
Day 5: Villefrance for Nice or Monaco
The ship arrives at Villefrance port.
At the foot of the Alps is the jewel of the French Riviera. Luxuriate on long sandy beaches and terrace cafes. Stroll along the Promenade des Anglais. Savor pissaladis and caillettes on your cruise to Nice/Monaco (Villefranche).
The Nice’s main attractions are the Promenade des Anglais (Walkway of the English) – a beautiful seaside promenade and the Old Town of Nice – the historic part of Nice, full of delicious restaurants, pubs, and souvenir shops. Here you will find the main city market (Cours Saleya) and narrow streets created by high and colorful tenement houses.
Do not miss the Place Masséna – the main city square, ideal as a starting point to explore the city. It is also a meeting place for the inhabitants of Nice.
Day 6: Ajaccio, Corsica

In addition to the fine sandy beaches and vineyards that have made the island famous, Ajaccio is a place of extraordinary discoveries and edifying experiences.

Hike to the Parata Tower or choose the best routes for you to get to know the Genoese city and the imperial one. With each step, you can see the vestiges of the glorious past of this area.
