Spain, Malta and Italy, 01 Oct - 18 Oct 2019, 17 NIGHTS, 8 PORTS

Luxuriously quiet, still perfectly warm - that's the Med in October

Sail from Southampton on Aurora, to soak up some late rays, as well as oodles of Mediterranean atmosphere and culture. Throw in stops at UNESCO World Heritage Sites, classic destinations and some hidden gems, and you can see why we call it a Discovery cruise.

Your first call is Seville (tours from Cadiz). While wandering the winding streets here you could discover a taste for flamenco as well as tapas. Following sophisticated Palma de Mallorca, on to Valletta, described by UNESCO as 'one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world'. The ultra-modern City Gate, Parliament Building and Opera House are worth a visit too. On to Messina, in a curved bay, protected by a golden statue of the Madonna.


Naples next, where the historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; its museums, palaces, frescoes, sculptures, and views, simply jaw-dropping. Then, prepare to lose your heart to Rome and the allure of the Colosseum, Vatican, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon. Do as the Romans do and tuck into a wood-fired pizza, in a locals’ trattoria, with a full-bodied Lazio wine
Following ancient Cartagena, your final call before Southampton is Gibraltar, for awesome duty-free shopping, excellent beach life and Barbary ape-watching.
