Participants will discover how modern influences in architecture and design have been integrated into ancient cities, creating a vibrant combination of old and new. Modernism Week has curated a series of experiential bus and walking tours that reflect the spirit of events that Palm Springs attendees have grown to know and love. On board, guests will have access to invitation only themed parties with representatives from the port-of-call countries. ModernismWeek@Sea offers Modernists enriching custom-curated travel experiences centered around midcentury modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture and value not available to the general public.
The cruise begins in Lisbon, Portugal then heads to Seville, Malaga, Alicante, Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona, Spain. From Spain, the ship will cruise to Marseille, France in Provence before ending in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Highlights include a visit to architect Ricardo Bofill’s “La Muralla Roja” (The Red Wall). Guests can choose to participate in optional post-cruise tour of Residence E-1027, Eileen Gray’s incredible minimalist villa, and a stop at Le Corbusier’s simple holiday home, Le Cabanon. Optional limited-participation opportunities include a “Mod Bites” cooking class that will showcase favorite midcentury cocktails and hors d’oeuvres of Monaco, France and Spain.
