Want to spice things up with old-fashioned glamor, sun-drenched shores, and fantastic food? Then we highly recommend a delectable journey to the Italian Riviera, where resort towns and cliff-side fishing villages emerge from the rocky shores of the Ligurian Sea in one stunning location after another.

Writers, artists, royals, and celebrities have all flocked to this storied part of the world in search of sun, sand, and the warm blue sea. And now it’s your turn get a taste of the good life with Azamara Club Cruises.

But be careful of biting off more than you can chew: Once you’ve visited the Italian Riviera with us, every other destination in the world may seem a bit bland in comparison.
