Day 1

Palma, Majorca

Palma. Think leafy boulevards that echo with the stilettos of stylish shoppers. Tiny tapas bars tucked down narrow sidestreets.

Day 2

At Sea

 

 

Day 3

Trapani, Sicily

The Greeks, the Romans, the Saracens, the Normans – they all squabbled over the pretty hook-shaped harbour of Trapani. And no wonder. 

 

Day 4

Sorrento, Italy

Despite being surrounded by groves of bitter lemons, Sorrento is one of Italy’s sweetest cities. Red-roofed buildings, balconied apartments and yawning piazzas characterise the centre of town.

Day 5

Civitaveccia (for Rome), Italy


Few cities on earth have the power to bowl you over quite like Rome. Discover a city packed with historical wonder, artistic splendour and culinary temptation at every turn. Not to mention enough designer shops to keep you browsing for a year.

Day 6


Ajaccio, Corsica


Rugged peaks, emerald countryside, twinkling blue waters – Corsica’s been plucked from the prettiest postcard. Rising up from one of the most beautiful gulfs in the world is Ajaccio, a town oozing charm. An impressive place in its own right, it’s also your gateway to the sensational scenery and sleepy little towns that this sun-soaked isle is famous for. One word of advice – take plenty of spare batteries for your camera. 

Day 7

Palamos, Spain

Fringed with a ribbon of sun-kissed sands, Palamos started life as a tiny fishing village. The legacy of fishing continues today with the day’s catch sold off to the highest bidder on the quayside every afternoon. Head down to the beach, or leave the town behind for a day of discovery.

Day 8

Palma, Majorca

Palma. Think leafy boulevards that echo with the stilettos of stylish shoppers. Tiny tapas bars tucked down narrow sidestreets.
