Highlights of this cruise:

Piraeus, (Athens), Greece
Start your journey in Piraeus with an archaeological walk past landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, and of course, the Acropolis. Afterwards, head to the Central Market for a feast of fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese. Finally, check out a local taverna where you can rub elbows with the locals well into the wee hours of the night.

Valletta, Malta
Everywhere you look in Valletta, there’s wonder to behold. Look down in St. John’s Co-Cathedral and discover “The most beautiful floor in the world.” Look up while wandering the streets and see colorful balconies filled with locals going about their day. Look beyond the city’s small size (less than half a square mile) and you’ll find a blend of old and new architecture that’s not to miss.

Trapani, Sicily, Italy
Discover the gateway to Sicily in Trapani. A beautiful tribute to the baroque-style of architecture, Trapani is home to the beautiful Basilica-Sanctuary of Maria Santissima Annunziata. Stop in and see the marble statue of Madonna of Trapani, then make your way to Lingy Tower to learn more about the archeological history of the area.

Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy
The colorful capital of Sardinia, there are over 25 centuries worth of history to discover in Cagliari. Beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs, and breathtaking underwater caves offer plenty of outdoor adventure, while the Il Castelo old town district is full of cobblestoned streets and quaint shops and cafes.

Cartagena, Spain
The seat of ancient Carthage, this Spanish port city is steeped in over 2,000 years of history. Start at the Naval Museum to learn more about the "City of Cultures", then set out to explore everything from Roman ruins right up to modern creations inspired by Gaudi.

Motril, (Granada), Spain
Renowned for its multicultural history, flamenco dancing and free tapas bars, Granada’s glory is embodied in the magnificent Alhambra, a compound of palaces and gardens that is a masterpiece of Moorish style.

Gibraltar, United Kingdom
The towering Rock of Gibraltar is a sight to behold. Overlooking the mouth of the Mediterranean from a height of 1,400 feet, it’s a natural fortress. It’s also home to huge caves and troupes of Barbary macaques that have taken up residence on The Rock’s upper reaches. On the streets below, you can explore dozens of British stores and pubs, and marvel that you’re a stone’s throw away from Spain.

Lisbon, Portugal
One of the oldest cities in the world, Lisbon is rich in architecture and criss-crossed by monument-studded grand boulevards. Must-sees include the church of Igreja de Sao Vicente de Fora, which dates back to the 12th century; Musee Calouste Gulbenkian, one of Europe’s leading fine arts museums; and Torre de Belém, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most famous monuments in Portugal.
