Day 4 – Cadiz, Spain
Historic, mysterious and romantic, the Spanish city of Cadiz is unlike any other. Founded in about 1100 BC, it is generally accepted as the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in today’s Europe.
But for the thin strip connecting it to the mainland to its south, Cadiz is an island of history and architecture that impresses at every turn through the streets of this charming ancient port. You will find a complex warren of streets, bustling bars and pretty beaches; it is difficult to know what to do or where to go first. Packed with historic sites, monuments and an excellent museum of art and archaeology, Cadiz is a draw for history buffs and those attracted by the arts.
Day 5 – Granada, Spain
Malaga is famously Picasso’s birthplace, and its location has attracted explorers, merchants and artists from all over the world, across the centuries. Many left their mark on this cosmopolitan city.
North from Malaga is friendly and vibrant Granada, where you’ll find the unique beauty of the Alhambra Palace and Gardens overlooking the city and across to the plains and mountains.
Day 6 – At Sea

Day 7 – Palma de Mallorca, Spain
A city steeped in history, the center of Palma de Mallorca is a vibrant area, bursting with sights, smells, and cultural experiences in which to immerse yourself.
Arriving by cruise ship brings you into the turquoise waters of the port of Palma de Mallorca, a 15-minute drive or 45-minute stroll from the city, on the southside of the Island.
It’s a wonderful introduction to Mallorca, the natural bay of the port offering your first glimpses of the island’s majestic golden beaches and rippling palm trees.
Day 8 – At Sea
Scenic Cruising
Day 9 – Rome, Italy
Calling at Civitavecchia brings you within an hour of Rome, Italy’s ancient UNESCO heritage city. From port it’s just a 60-minute train connection to the Eternal City, where architectural wonders of yesteryear abound, ready to transport you back to a time of Emperors, sculptors and gladiators. Step inside the iconic curved amphitheater of the Colosseum, scale the Spanish Steps or seal your wish with a coin at the Trevi Fountain. While there, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Vatican City, Europe’s smallest independent state. It’s here that you’ll find the Sistine Chapel with its beautiful ceiling frescoes artfully painted by Michelangelo – a simply stunning sight to behold.
