Day 1: Barcelona
Embark your ship – Norwegian Spirit
Barcelona combines everything that is most charming about Mediterranean cities – a relaxed pace, months of endless sunshine, unbeatable food – with the cultural and design sophistication of almost any city in the northern hemisphere. Its patchwork of architectural styles displays dark, Gothic façades next to the harlequin buildings of the Modernistas and the skyline-piercing constructions of Jean Nouvel or Herzog and de Meuron, and a day spent admiring them can be topped off with a sun-downer on one of the city’s seven beaches before dinner at any number of Michelin-starred gastronomic temples or humble, family-run tapas bars.
Day 2: Palma (Mallorca)
Palma a major port, and the summer holiday spot of choice for Spain’s royal family. Explore the lovely old quarter and step into the past in the historic churches, then get a taste of contemporary Palma in the city’s lively tapas bars. Visit the Arab Baths, the Moorish Palace and the Mallorca Museum, buy a string of Mallorca pearls or for outstanding views of the harbour take a ride on the wooden train to Soller.
Day 3: Valencia
Valencia is a popular and picturesque tourist resort known for its paella and pavement cafes. The old city is a great place to begin your visit where you will find the Valencia Cathedral and once inside you can climb the octagonal Miguelete Bell Tower. Two decades of bold development has given Spain’s third-largest city some of the most striking architecture in the country, adding to the wealth of elegant art nouveau buildings that line the streets, as well as Gothic and Renaissance monuments. With dynamic museums, a flourishing restaurant scene, lively nightlife, great shops and miles of beach, Valencia is bursting with Mediterranean exuberance.
The port of Cartagena, in the Mediterranean’s Costa Cálida, has been prized since Carthaginian times. Thanks to its strategic position on the Murcia coast, it has been inhabited by several cultures which have left their mark on its artistic heritage. A tour of the place and its museums will draw us into the history of a city closely tied to the sea.
Day 5: Malaga
Malaga. Gateway to Andalusian and the famed Costa del Sol resorts the Spanish port of Malaga stands out as a bustling destination with its own unique character. Rising high above the city with spectacular views, are the ruins of the 14th century Moorish castle, and of course its most famous son Pablo Picasso is recognized with a history of the artist’s life at the city’s fascinating Picasso Foundation.
Day 6: Gibraltar
Gibraltar. The Rock of Gibraltar crouches guard like, protecting the entrance to the Mediterranean from unwelcome visitors. Many countries have fought for control of this passage between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, resulting in a vibrant cultural melting pot. Narrow steep lanes are busy with English tourists, veiled Moroccan women in caftans, and Spanish residents. Stroll below the white cliffs among a profusion of palm, pine, and cypress. Go below to Gibraltar’s caves, or up above to see the Rock’s Barbary apes
Day 7: At Sea
Day 8: Cagliari
Cagliari. On the beautiful Island of Sardinia, Cagliari will enchant you with its gorgeous expansive beaches at Poetto. Take in the views at the aptly named Gulf of Angels or visit the stunning 2nd century Roman amphitheater before heading to the one of the restaurants for traditional Sardinian food that is freshly prepared and beautifully presented.
Day 10: Malta
Malta. is a Mediterranean island of huge historical importance, influenced by many great empires. The capital fortress city of Valletta, described as an open-air museum, is mainly Baroque in character having been built in the 16th century by the Order of St John of Jerusalem. It offers some of Europe’s finest palaces, churches, and works of art. Valletta harbour is surrounded by cream coloured buildings and twisting streets.
Day 11: Naples
Naples. Under the shadow of the mighty Vesuvius, Naples is best known for its cache of medieval and Baroque architecture, and as the birthplace of the pizza. With Pompeii on its doorstep and as many churches as Rome, there’s a lot to see in this city on the romantic Bay of Naples. Sip a glass of Lacryma Christi wine from the slopes of Vesuvius or shop on Via San Gregorio Armeno. Or simply relax with a Margarita pizza at one of the many piazza café.
Day 12: Civitavecchia (Rome)
