This journey through the Med, punctuated by visits to destinations famed for their ancient fortifications and landmarks, makes for a memorable discovery of the region’s rich history and diversity. At the very heart of the itinerary is beautiful Malta; you stop overnight in Valletta when the temperatures here are perfect for exploring the capital and beyond. You’ve ample time to take in Valletta iconic sights, such as St John’s Cathedral and the Presidential Palace, or perhaps tour to the medieval city of Mdina. Sailing in and out of the UNESCO-listed Grand Harbour is an experience to remember too. Ancient treasures aplenty also await your discovery in Spain and Morocco. In the Spanish city of Cartagena, Cartagena, a magnificent medieval castle, Roman amphitheatre and Bateria de Castillitos – which guards the city from atop a gorgeous coastal perch – are ‘must-visit’ sites. Meanwhile, on Moroccan shores, you’ve a morning in Tangier, time to explore a city of soaring minarets, Kasbahs and animated souks; or perhaps uncover UNESCO-listed Tétouan and its famous ancient medina on tour. You also visit the Italian island of Sardinia; from Cagliari, stunning rock formations such as the ‘Devil’s Saddle’, salt pools and inviting beaches are within reach; though you may be tempted to stay in the island’s capital to sample the traditional flavours and culture with local wine and folk dancing
