Location Cartagena (Spain)
In
Out

Today Spain’s major commercial port and naval base, Cartagena lies on the coast of Murcia, its great indented bay guarded by rocky promontories, each topped by a fort. Founded in 221 BC by Hasdrubal, leader of the Carthaginians (hence the name) from North Africa, it has a fascinating history – and as Nova Carthage was long the Romans’ principal settlement in their Iberian stronghold. Attractive promenades extend along the harbour, while to the northeast is the famous beach and watersports resort area of the lagoon-like Mar Menor.

Location Cagliari
In
Out

Sardinia’s historic capital ‘between the sea and the mountains’ was founded by the Phoenicians, developed by Rome and later subjected to a wealth of Pisan, Genoese and Spanish influences! Climb up from the mountain harbour side city to explore the picturesque Upper Town’s old quarter – dominated by a medieval castle and cathedral and protected by walls nearly 1,000 years old. Or simply relax by one of the lovely beaches within easy reach.

Date 29/03/2022
Location Naples
In
Out

Italy’s third largest city is as exuberant as it is rich in history. Naples is the gateway to exploring some of Italy’s richest sightseeing treasures like Pompeii and Heraculem, where the ancient Roman ruins stand preserved to this day courtesy of the ashes of nearby Mount Vesuvius. Or the fabled city of Sorrento whose vitality is only matched by the splendour of its coastal setting. Quintessentially Italian the resort is a bustling maze of shops, boutiques and open-air cafes. Capri and the picturesque villages of the Amalfi coast will all compete for your time.

Location Rome (Civitavecchia)
In
Out

Gateway to Rome – Italy’s Eternal City, living monument to a 3,000-year history that has shaped the civilisation of our western world. From the Colosseum and Forum of Ancient Rome to the city’s great masterpieces of renaissance and Baroque art and architecture, the emblems of past grandeur provide a backdrop for the elegant designer boutiques, pavement cafes, inviting trattorie and countless sophisticated pleasures of today’s vibrant capital.

Location Ajaccio
In
Out

Friendly capital of this captivating ‘Isle of Beauty’, whose rugged coastline and flawless beaches enclose a fragrant maquis-carpeted interior dotted with mellow old hill-towns. Fought over by Greek, Roman, Vandal, Byzantine and Saracen, Corsica was sold by Genoa to France in 1768 – a fateful day for Europe, for a year later one Napoleon Bonaparte was born in Ajaccio (his birthplace is now a museum).

The busy port city of Andalusia, the Spain of gazpacho and paella, flamenco and fiesta, recaptured from the Moors of the 15th century after 800 years of conflict. Enjoy the panorama from Gibralfara Castle, and visit the Moorish Alcazaba fortress, the birthplace of Picasso, and a wine cellar to try the famous local dessert wines. Or travel to Granada, to the glorious Alhambra, whose proud 14th century palaces and exotic gardens are Spain’s finest expression of Moorish art.

At the north western tip of Spain, La Coruna is Galicia’s largest city – from where in 1588 the Spanish Armada sailed to its fate. It’s the port of call for nearby Santiago de Compostela, in whose ornate 11th century cathedral rests the body of St James. With Jerusalem and Rome, it remains one of Christendom’s most holy places – to which in the middle ages up to two million pilgrims came each year.
