The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.
Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.
The provincial Italian town of Savona is one of northern Italy's major sea ports and set amongst the scenery of the Liguria region, it is more than just an industrial and port town. Savona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast around 25 miles to the west of Genoa and 93 miles to the east of Nice in France. For those visitors who choose to explore the town will find a medieval fortress, art galleries and cathedrals that sit alongside brightly coloured coastal homes. Although the city seems to attract fewer tourists than some of its Mediterranean neighbours it is easily reached by road, train and ferry. This town’s coastal location helped it develop into an important port city whose harbour serves as the areas main industrial hub for automobile exports. Multiple ferries and Mediterranean cruise ships also frequently depart from Savona’s harbour.
In the town, the 16th century Fortezza Priamar overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and was constructed by Genoese workers to demonstrate their dominance over the Savonese which they had just defeated in battle. Another well preserved 16th century building in the town is the Cattedrale di Nostra Signora Assunta which was constructed to replace the 13the century Church of St. Francis, which was falling apart.
