Day 1 - Dover
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Dover. Embark Boudicca (3T+) in preparation for a late afternoon sailing.
Day 2 - 4 - At sea
Day 5 - Malaga, Spain
Andalucia combines the appealing idleness of seemingly endless beaches with the exciting bustle of city life. A wealth of cultural, historical, artistic and architectural treasures can be found in Malaga, including the Picasso Museum and the striking Alcazaba Fortress and Castillo de Gibralfaro. Granada’s Alhambra is just an excursion away.
Day 6 - At sea
Day 7 - Mahon, Menorca
Mahon is a delightful capital with traces of various civilisations in the façades of city halls and churches. From here, sleepy fishing villages, stunning beaches and Monte Toro, the island’s highest peak, are all waiting to be uncovered.
Day 8 - At sea
Day 9 - Sorrento, Italy
Sorrento’s maze of streets is a joy to explore - little alleyways of inviting shops filled with ice cream, limoncello and pottery. Look for the unusual Vallone dei Mulino, and take a steep walk to the sea or the surrounding hills. Or take an excursion to the tenderly excavated remains of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 10 - Naples
Naples can feel chaotic on first sight, but go beyond the ruggedness and a UNESCO World Heritage city of archaeological treasures, breathtaking frescoes, elegant sculptures and superb panoramas can be found. The city’s collection of palaces, castles and churches almost puts Rome to shame.
Day 11 - Amalfi - Cruising Amalfi Coast and Capri
The stunning, UNESCO-listed town of Amalfi is the heart of Italy’s glorious Amalfi Coast. Although most of the old city dropped into the Mediterranean during an earthquake in 1343, you can still experience the past through the Arab-Romanesque architecture of Sant'Andrea Cathedral; the Museo Arsenale, a converted medieval shipyard; and the Moorish-style Cloister of Paradise. Late this afternoon, we cruise along the Amalfi Coast and past Capri. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 12 - Civitavecchia (Rome)
Civitavecchia is a historic port with links to Rome. Explore the Roman dock or take a full-day excursion to the Eternal City to view great Renaissance and baroque masterpieces, the Colosseum and Forum of Ancient Rome.
Day 13 - Livorno
Spend today in Livorno, known for its seafood, Renaissance-era fortifications, and canal-laced historic district. An easy train journey from this Tuscan port city opens up the spectacular art and Duomo of Florence, and Pisa’s Leaning Tower.
Day 14 - Portofino
Portofino is the perfect, pastel-coloured fishing village tucked away in a tree-sheltered bay just south of Genoa. Stroll along a harbour lined with super-yachts, or follow cobbled paths to small piazzas and a gorgeous hanging garden towered over by a weathered fortress. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 15 - Genoa
Genoa is the birthplace of Christopher Columbus and pesto! Savour the vivid green sauce over pasta as you people-watch from a small ristorante, and explore sights that include a moored submarine and a medieval Old Town which once rivalled Venice.
Day 16 - At sea
Day 17 - Cartagena, Spain
One of Spain’s most important port cities for over 2,000 years, Cartagena is bursting with history and culture. Spend your afternoon visiting Casa de la Fortuna, a villa with murals and mosaics, and medieval Castillo de la Conception. Or follow the trail of modernist buildings designed by pupils of Antoni Gaudi.
Day 18 - At sea
Day 19 - Lisbon, Portugal
A day to enjoy Portugal’s colourful capital. Ancient ruins, white-domed cathedrals and fascinating museums await. Don’t miss Belém, where a simple fortress marks the starting point for many voyages of discovery.
Day 20 - Vigo, Spain
Spend the afternoon in Vigo. The fishing houses in the wonderful old quarter hint at the city’s historical importance in Spain’s maritime industry. The neo-classical Collegiate Church of Santa Maria was built on the site of a grand Gothic church that was destroyed by Francis Drake, and is well worth a visit.
Day 21 - 22 - At sea
Day 23 Dover
We disembark after breakfast. Your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
