Join a fascinating spring voyage from Athens to Madeira’s Funchal, charting a course through what has been known in centuries past as the Middle Sea. Historian John Julius Norwich’s epic history is the inspiration for this Mediterranean journey, featuring maiden visits to Catania and Portimão and calling at many other historic and captivating cities. First we arrive in Greece spending enthralling days in the Minoan settlements of Akrotiri in Santorini and Crete’s Knossos. The lovely Old Town of Chania is a charming place to explore on foot and learn of the city’s past. Continue to Malta and Sicily - the highlight of which is a visit to the outstanding 12th-century Palatine Chapel and Cathedral. We continue to Spain where we undertake a fascinating selection of excursions from city tours to museum visits and delicious sherry tasting. It is certain to say that in these few days we experience the best of Spanish traditions and history. We complete our voyage in Portugal’s island of Madeira, where we are treated to a truly mesmerising day exploring the ‘floating garden in the Atlantic’.
