The stunning Mediterranean region is always in demand, and where better for an in-depth discovery than the impossibly beautiful, UNESCO-listed Amalfi Coast? The dramatic cliffs, glorious beaches, grandiose villas and dreamy resorts are sure to take your breath away. Plus, saving sailing time by departing from the south-westerly location of Falmouth means you can pack in idyllic islands and the highlights of Rome too.
Strategically placed on the Mediterranean coastline, Cartagena is one of Spain’s most historically fascinating places, harbouring secrets of a Roman and Carthaginian heritage. Venture to the medieval Conception Castle, overlooking the stunning natural harbour; discover the incredible Roman amphitheatre – built between 5 and 1 BC; and admire the many Modernist buildings populating the city.
Palermo, Sicily, Italy
Palermo is perfect for those with a thirst for adventure. Wandering the streets of the city, you’ll unearth a fascinating background evident in the mix of architectural styles from the many cultures that have called this place their own. Experience a picture book of highlights, including the Royal Palace, the Cathedral, and the Politeama and Massimo theatres.
Amalfi, Amalfi Coast, Italy
Once a medieval maritime power, pretty Amalfi now functions as a summer tourist hotspot near the Gulf of Salerno, and is home to vivacious piazzas, a glorious beach and a handful of historic buildings. With its handy size, this welcoming destination invites you to explore and really get under its skin, all the while being encircled by beautiful, dramatic cliffs and stunning coastal surroundings.
Visit the picturesque Positano, considered the prettiest town along the Amalfi Coast.
Cruising Amalfi Coast & past Capri
Recognised by UNESCO as an outstandingly beautiful landscape, the Amalfi Coast is home to towering mountains, grandiose villas, lush forest and a string of dreamy Mediterranean resorts. Glide out towards the Bay of Naples and idyllic Capri appears. Once the residence of the Emperor Augustus, its Roman ruins, rugged seascapes, secluded coves and vibrant flora have been charming visitors for decades.
Rome (from Civitavecchia), Italy
From the mighty Colosseum or the Roman Forum to St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, there appears to be no end to Rome’s list of sights to take your breath away – words barely do the ‘Eternal City’ justice. Romantic
and inspiring in equal measure, it’s home to an astonishing artistic and cultural heritage too; sculptures, museums, adorned facades and more are discovered with minimal effort. Of course, dining lavishly and observing ‘la dolce vita’ around the lively piazzas form part of the Roman experience too.
Explore the amazing city of Rome, taking in the major sights such as the Roman Forum, the Arch of Constantine, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and the Vatican City.
Sorrento, Amalfi Coast, Italy
Beautiful Sorrento overlooks the crystal-clear Bay of Naples, with unparalleled views of Naples itself, the picturesque Amalfi Coast and the legendary Mount Vesuvius to savour. From here you can take a trip to Pompeii, the ancient city devastated by volcanic activity, or simply venture through the unspoilt countryside. You won’t be disappointed in Sorrento either; there’s the San Francesco Church and Piazza Tasso, as well as an array of shops parading locally-produced ceramics and lacework.
