Your Destinations

Santorini, Greece
Soak up some warm rays on any one of the many sun-carpeted red, white or black sandy beaches and discover a little taverna, serving deliciously fresh seafood, hidden away by a beautiful cove. Sip on a refreshing beverage and enjoy a panoramic view of the sun set over the white-washed villages and the deep blue Aegean sea beyond.  
Heraklion, Crete
With Mount Yioúhtas rising behind, the great fortress guarding the harbour entrance and the city walls encircling and dominating the oldest part of town, Heraklion certainly makes an entrance, with charming markets and atmospheric old alleyways, cafés and bars, this city is a delight to get lost in for an afternoon.
Chania, Crete
In Chania, the old town's maze of cobbled streets, Venetian and Turkish inspired architecture, and the pretty harbour are a joy to discover. Brimming with historic churches, craft shops and fantastic food at waterfront restaurants, it has something to offer every visitor. 
Valletta, Malta
With an unsurpassed collection of original Baroque architecture, fortified city walls overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and the spectacular Co-Cathedral of St John, which features intricately carved stone vaults and a famed painting by Caravaggio, it is no wonder that this smallest of European capital cities is a world heritage site. 
Catania, Sicily
Located on the east coast of Sicily, Catania is situated at the foot of the largest volcano in Europe, Mount Etna. Elegant, modern, and an important hub in Europe’s tech industry, Catania is also rich with baroque architecture, medieval castles, Roman era theatres, and a flourishing cultural and artistic center.  
Palmero, Sicily 
Palermo is the capital of the Italian island, Sicily, an island renowned as a vacation destination due to its great beauty and historical significance. Leave the ship in Palermo's port and journey back in time, the embracing spirit of Roger’s reign is gloriously expressed in many of the great buildings of Sicily, but nowhere more perfectly than the Palatine Chapel, built during the 1130s and 1140s.
Trapani, Italy
Embrace the Italian way of life, explore the traditional, honey-coloured streets, and of course sample the world renowned cuisine in its truest form. 
Malaga, Spain
Crowned with the remains of a mighty Moorish fortress, the Gibralfaro castle, and its splendid 11th century Alcazabar, this handsome city offers tree-lined boulevards, chic shopping avenues, charming tapas bars and numerous impressive sights. 
Cadiz, Spain
Set on a rocky peninsula overlooking the beautiful bay, captivating Cadiz exudes traditional Andalucian charm and boasts an old city of quaint narrow lanes, tranquil plazas and delightful architecture, such as the baroque cathedral, Grand Theatre and pretty watchtowers. 
Portimao, Portugal
Enjoy a drive through the city and a guided tour of the Old Town the highlight of which is the 15th century church Igreja da Nossa Senhora da Conceicao, or Mother Church of Our Lady of Conception.
Funchal, Madeira
Steeped in history and decked in riotously coloured flowers that give it its nickname of the 'Garden Isle', the Portuguese volcanic island of Madeira basks in year-round sunshine and offers natural spectacles at almost every turn. Highlights include its fairytale capital, Funchal, where quaint cobbled lanes and flower markets tumble down to a glorious natural harbour.
