  • FMM DAY 2

    Valletta

    Europe’s tiniest capital city is so densely packed with historical sites and monuments, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re strolling through an open-air museum. UNESCO-listed Valletta is 16th-century elegance with golden-stone fortresses and sprawling old mansions.

    This morning we enjoy a guided tour, taking in St John’s Cathedral, filled with magnificent gifts from the Kings of the St John; the Fort of St Elmo; and the National War Museum before cooling off by a fountain in Upper Barrakka Gardens. The panoramic views of the Grand Harbour from here are spectacular.

    • Tour of Valletta, including Fort St Elmo and the National War Museum (morning)

    Radisson Blu, St Julian’s (5-star)


  • FMM DAY 3

    Gozo

    Said to be the island of the Greek Goddess Calypso, Gozo is described in legendary stories to be a peaceful and mystical isle - and that certainly rings true today. Smaller, greener and more rural than Malta, Gozo has a character entirely of its own. Imagine rugged landscapes lapped by an emerald coastline and vast countryside dotted with farmland. In the main town of Victoria, the citadel dates back to Carthaginian and Roman times. You’ll also take in the Bay of Xlendi and the Megalithic Ggantija Temples, which date back earlier than the pyramids in Egypt.

    • Excursion to Gozo, including the Ggantija Temples (all day)

    Radisson Blu, St Julian’s (5-star)


  • FMM DAY 4

  • FMM DAY 5

    Day 5 - Valletta (overnight)

    The Blue Grotto comprises several sea caverns set amongst the sparkling blue sea waters. If the sun shines just right, it will cast an enchanting reflection onto the cave walls. This morning we’ll take a boat tour into the caverns, followed by a visit to the megalithic temple complex of Hagar Qim. Dating back to between 3600-3200 BC, the temple is perched on a magnificent location atop a sea cliff.

    This afternoon we’ll transfer to embark our ship, with some time to settle in before dinner on board tonight.

    • Excursion to view Blue Grotto and Hagar Qim (morning)

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 6

    Day 6 - Valletta

    You’ll enjoy another day in Valletta to spend as you please. It is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean, so this is your chance to really soak it all up. Or you could discover the silent city of Mdina, a fortified city in the northern region of Malta and home to the Roman burial complex of St Paul’s Catacombs.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 7

    Day 7 - Trapani, Italy

    Perched on the western coast of Sicily, the city of Trapani is a fishing port with a long history. It’s renowned for its baroque-style architecture and golden palazzi (mansions) and maze of ancient churches - all of which make for a compelling stroll through town. The sickle-shaped spit of land is Trapani’s Old Town and it was once the heart of a great trading network stretching from Carthage to Venice.

    Perhaps opt for a tour, which will take in highlights such as the offshore medieval fortress and the 17th-century Torre di Ligny watchtower. Or maybe enjoy a beautiful boulevard walk to local shops and trattoria.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 8

    Day 8 - Cagliari, Sardinia

    Step ashore into the more modern harbourside then make your way to the picturesque upper town’s old quarter and you’ll be treated to the medieval castle and cathedral, protected by walls nearly 1,000 years old. Or you could spend the day relaxing on one of the island’s renowned beaches.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 9

    Day 9 - Mahon (Menorca), Spain

    As you wander the streets of Menorca’s capital, you’ll discover traces of the various civilisations that have passed through the city. Elsewhere on the island, you’ll find sleepy fishing villages, stunning beaches, and Monte Toro - the island’s highest peak.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 10

    Day 10 - Ibiza

    Sun-kissed and pine-clad, for the most part Ibiza is a collection of quiet villages, hidden hamlets, hushed churches and glorious, sprawling beaches. The island’s capital, Ibiza Town (Eivissa in Catalan), has a superb Old Town. The 6th-century walls and ramparts of Dalt Vila, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, surround a tight maze of cobbled streets. Wander through the Portal de Tablas entrance and you’ll pass into an enchantingly peaceful main square, home to tiny boutiques and family-run restaurants.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 11

    Day 11 - At sea

    Spend a leisurely day at sea to enjoy some of the ship’s amenities.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 12

    Day 12 - Cruising the Guadalquivir River - Seville (overnight)

    The enchanting Guadalquivir is one of Spain’s longest rivers and serves as the main waterway flowing through Andalucia. Our ship’s smaller size means we’re able to easily navigate this beautiful waterway and snake our way up into the heart of Seville.

    Along the way, the river’s winding course will take you on a journey through some of Europe’s richest plains and fantastic natural scenery. At the mouth of the river you’ll see the vast Doñana National Park - a huge protected marshland with a range of diverse fauna and flora, and the charming fishing town of Bonanza.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 13

    Day 13 - Seville

    Baroque churches, winding medieval lanes, exotic flamenco clubs and bustling tapas bars. Seville is all about celebrating the past and the here and now. Our day spent here will almost certainly leave you wanting more.

    The city is credited with the invention of tapas - if you’re feeling hungry, you could spend your day moving from bar to bar as the locals do, making an entire meal out of the tapas experience. Maybe visit the exquisitely decorated Moorish style Alcázar, the city’s royal palace with themed gardens laid out in terraces. Or simply stroll along the river’s banks taking in the city’s relaxed atmosphere.

    Braemar (3.5-star)

  • FMM DAY 14

    Day 14 - Lisbon, Portugal

    Stretched across its seven trademark hills overlooking the River Tagus estuary, Portugal’s hilly, coastal capital of Lisbon is a cinematic collection of cobbled alleyways, pastel-coloured buildings, ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals. The Pombaline architecture that now defines the city is some of the first seismically protected buildings in Europe, following a catastrophic earthquake in 1755.

    The best way to explore this fascinating city is to see where your feet take you. There are many museums, such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art, the national Coach Museum and the Carmo Archaeological Museum. If you’re feeling peckish, be sure to stop for a local pastel de nata (custard tart) dusted with icing sugar and cinnamon.
