About Alicante in Destinations

image alt

Built around a natural harbour, the main city and cruise port on Spain's Costa Blanca, Alicante, is also a top beach resort in its own right. It has a sophisticated Mediterranean feel with its restored old town adding to its charm and the attraction of its sandy beaches. Dubbed the 'City of Light' when founded by the Romans, Alicante is still a relaxing place to walk around. Down from the impressive Castillo de Santa Barbara fortress, which offers impressive views across the city, most...

About Gibraltar in Destinations

image alt

Britons love cruising to 'home from home' Mediterranean cruise port Gibraltar - and not just because it has some excellent pubs and tax free shops (good buys include glassware, china, leather goods, alcohol, perfume, silk and cashmere garments). Gibraltar also offers wonderful views of the Bay of Gibraltar and the Moroccan mountains from the Rock Restaurant, served by cable car from the Grand Parade. Birdwatchers can spot more than 230 species and there are clearly marked nature trails...

About Hvar in Destinations

It's easy to see why Hvar is such a popular town on this beautiful Dalmatian Riviera island, where terracotta tiled houses cling to the lush hillside rising from the pretty yacht-filled harbour. The area is rich in history and known for its medieval architecture. Take in the incredible views over Hvar and the surrounding islands from the 16th century Fortica Fortress.

The old Mediterranean port of Kotor, is in the Gulf of Kotor - one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea, and sometimes referred to as the most-southern fjord in Europe.

The Cathedral of...

About Palermo in Destinations

Puerto Banus is set to the west of this wealthy city and was completely designed by a single architect; Noldi Schreck. He brought his Beverly Hills building experience to the Mediterranean and, working closely with José Banús, created a sophisticated Andalusian village and marina. Puerto Banus may be small but it is brimming with activities and attractions; a blue flag beach, mouth-watering...

About Sete in Destinations

image alt

With so many canals flowing through town, it's no surprise Sete is known as the Little Venice of Languedoc. Sete charms simply by not trying. It's first and foremost a busy working port, but set in a beautiful position, with the Med in front and the Thau lagoon behind, a shimmering stretch of salt water, full of mussel and oyster beds and wildfowl, including flamingos. There are 8 miles of glorious beaches to enjoy. But, if you want to walk off your seafood platter, climb the 400 steps to...

About Tripoli in Destinations

image alt

Libya is slowly opening up to the outside world and there is the beginnings of a tourism industry, with cruise passengers among the first to enjoy some of the most fascinating sites to be found in North Africa or anywhere around the Mediterranean. The capital and cruise port, Tripoli, is a typical North African city of narrow streets and lively souks. It also has a fascinating national museum but the real treasures are still out in the desert which covers most of this country. First,...

About Heraklion in Destinations

image alt

The proud city of Heraklion is the modern capital of Crete, largest and most ruggedly beautiful of the Greek Isles. Just along the coast, you'll find the scrupulously renovated remains of Knossos, the Palace of King Minos and the island's capital under the Minoans. Here, the endless maze of salons, staircases and courtyards gave rise to the legend of the Labyrinth, housing the evil Minotaur at its heart. See the legend come vividly to life!

About Malta in Destinations

image alt

The fortifications at Malta's Grand Harbour speak volumes about her past, indeed her reputation for valour during the Second World war earned her the George Cross and there aren't too many islands you can say that of! Mosta and Medina (the silent city) will vie for your attention if you want to go wandering.

About Palma in Destinations

image alt

Dominated by its iconic Gothic cathedral, the Majorcan capital and cruise port Palma has been transformed in recent years into one of the most sophisticated hotspots of the Mediterranean.

About Portofino in Destinations

image alt

"After Portofino, anything would be an anticlimax." So wrote the American gourmettraveller Samuel Chamberlain in his un-improvable 1958 description. For decades Portofino has attracted the rich and famous like a magnet, drawn by its irresistible combination of picture-perfect prettiness, and exclusive hostelries such as the modestly named Hotel Splendido. Crisp white wines and Ligurian favourite pesto dominate the menus, proving the perfect accompaniment to the fresh fish, in what is the...

About Ajaccio in Destinations

image alt

Napoleon was born here and, if you did not know that before, it would only take a few minutes after cruising into Ajaccio to cotton on as 'Boneys' name and likeness is everywhere. The main shopping street is called Cours Napoleon and the wide tree-lined boulevards, parks and large squares in this newer part of town feature many statues of the great man, notably in the main square (ironically called General de Gaulle). The Old Town between the port and the imposing citadel on the cliff above...

About Athens in Destinations

image alt

The Acropolis - 'High City' - will always be the top attraction from Athens cruise port Piraeus. With its 2,500-year-old Parthenon, temple to Poseidon and Athena, Odeon of Herodes Atticus and Theatre of Dionysus, it quite literally stands out as an oasis of calm in the frenetic Greek capital. As part of the major revamp the city had for the 2004 Olympics, 400 modern buildings were cleared from the ancient meeting place next to the Acropolis, the Agora, which was then restored and linked...

About Almeria in Destinations

image alt

A pretty and largely modern city, Almeria is the capital of the Spanish province bearing the same name. Occupied first by the Phoenicans then the Carthagians, the Romans and the Moors, it has an interesting and diverse history.

Standing atop the mountain, which provides the backdrop to the city, is the Alcazaba or Arab Fortress, built in 995, which commands some...

About Cagliari in Destinations

image alt

Visually stunning, Sardinia's capital and main cruise port Cagliari can trace its history back thousands of years to Roman times and features many museums, historic churches and ancient artefacts. Most of the city's impressive attractions can be seen just by walking through the walled Castello area with its winding alleyways and open piazzas. Do not miss the 2nd Century Roman amphitheatre and the colourful botanical gardens featuring 500 different plants. There is a lively covered market...

About Calvi in Destinations

image alt

Your first sight of Calvi will be dominated by the huge 15th century citadel overlooking the town and its cruise port (Quai Landry). Unusually, it is the new town which is nearest, with the more historic quarter up towards the citadel. This makes for a very pleasant walk with lots to see along the way, including the St-Jean-Baptiste Cathedral and the Oratoire St Antoine, before you reach the citadel itself. A lively Corsican holiday resort in its own right with a vibrant nightlife, Calvi...
