DAY 3

Santorini - 13:00-22:00 (Tender Port)

Whitewashed villages clinging to the sides of the sea cliffs have made the volcanic island of Santorini one of the most widely photographed places in the world. The island’s charm and subtle mystery have even made it a target of speculation as the location of the Lost City of Atlantis.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included
DAY 4

Athens (Piraeus), Greece - 07:00-18:00

This is the cradle of civilization, the oldest city in Europe. Not only is this city home to the Acropolis and some of the most important architectural structures and archaeological finds in the Western world, It is also a very modern city, an urban amalgam of extraordinary art, culture, cuisine and shopping.

DAY 5

Mykonos, Greece 07:00-14:00

Mykonos is a classic Greek Island with whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and windmills. Add a reputation for beautiful beaches and you’ll understand why Mykonos is the most popular island in the Cyclades. Explore the island in a 4 x 4 or take a ferry to the tiny island of Delos

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included
DAY 6

Corfu, Greece 12:00-19:00

One of the lushest of the Greek Isles, Corfu is rimmed in dramatic blue waters and topped with tranquil hillside villages. A collection of quaint cafes in the town of Corfu feels very continental, but the island’s secluded coves and sandy beaches could only be found in the Greek Isles.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included
DAY 7

Valletta, Malta 13:30-22:00

Although somewhat scarred by World War II, Valletta prides itself on its magnificent Baroque palaces, piazzas, gardens and churches. The Magisterial Palace, built between 1571 and 1574, now houses the Maltese Parliament and offices of the President of Malta.

DAY 8

Messina (Sicily), Italy 08:00-18:00

The third largest city on the island of Sicily, Messina welcomes cruise ship visitors with its lovely harbour, extraordinary architecture (much of which miraculously survived a horrendous earthquake and tidal wave in 1908) and wonderful food. Stroll through Messina’s Piazza Cairoli taking in magnificent fountains and cathedrals, or sip Marsala wine at a sidewalk café.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included
DAY 9

Naples, Italy 06:30-16.00

Naples, located on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, is a city rich in history. A tour around Naples’ grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles in the old centre will take you back centuries. Pompeii is not too far either, a dashing city which boasts diverse cultural offerings and charming streets.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included
DAY 10

Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy 09:00-20:30

Experience the real Florence by mingling with the residents at a popular market, sampling Florentine delicacies and browsing the less commercialized Oltrarno district.

What’s even more fortunate is that all the main attractions in Florence are centrally located for the perfect walking tour. See Santa Croce, Piazza del Duomo and Michelangelo’s David.

Or why not head to Pisa to visit the infamous ‘Leaning Tower’.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa attracts travellers from all over the world, and in addition to the tower, the city offers many other interesting things to see.

When you first arrive at the beautiful Square of Miracles (Piazza dei Miracoli), it’s impossible not to be captivated by the magnificent tower. Don’t just admire it from below – the climb up the tower is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and you’ll experience incredible views from the top.

Along the perimeter of the square, there is also the Cemetery, the Cathedral Museum and the Museum of the Synopses.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included
