Cádiz promenade

Cadiz has been a popular port, trading post and base for exploration for around 3,000 years and the influence of its varied past makes it a fascinating city to explore.

Gallipoli

Gallipoli, Apulia, Italy Sat 09 Oct 2021

Gallipoli

With its glorious coastline, inviting beaches, magnificent historic landmarks and monuments, and enchanting narrow streets and squares, Gallipoli – Greek for ‘beautiful city’ – certainly lives up to its name, and is a true delight to discover and explore on Italy’s picturesque Ionian Coast. A city of two parts, Gallipoli is divided into a vibrant modern district on the mainland, and an ancient historic centre situated on a small island reaching out into the Ionian. While both provide plenty of highlights, the island-based ‘centro storico’ is the place to experience the city at its most authentic. Wander the streets, which are barely wide enough for even the smallest Italian cars, and you’ll be immersed in centuries of history amongst ornate churches, fortifications, towers and fountains, while charming cafés, restaurants and markets alive with friendly locals await discovery too, ready to provide a taste of authentic traditional flavours. Outside the city’s heart, the beaches – considered some of the best throughout Italy – make for the perfect place to enjoy some time away from the Gallipoli’s exciting, enchanting yet hectic hustle and bustle, so perhaps take to the golden sands and enjoy some rest, relaxation and soothing sunshine too.

Bay of Kotor

Kotor, Montenegro Sun 10 Oct 2021

Bay of Kotor

On the western coast of Montenegro, tucked away from the Adriatic Sea, is the ancient town of Kotor. Beyond its snaking stone walls, this fortified city offers a charming glimpse back in time.

Sibenik, Croatia

Sibenik, Croatia Mon 11 Oct 2021

Sibenik, Croatia

Lesser known than the beautiful, yet well-trodden cities of Split and Dubrovnik, Sibenik offers all of the quintessential delights than one might have come to expect from destinations situated on Croatia’s glorious Adriatic Coast. Sibenik is situated within a deep bay, one of the best-protected harbours found anyway in the Adriatic region, and boasts spectacular surrounding landscapes, while the city itself is a sight to behold from the first moment it comes into view; typically Croatian scenes of white-washed, terracotta-topped buildings hint at the type of treasures awaiting discovery ashore. Wander the little, steeply-angled streets and attractive squares framed by a mix of centuries-old architectural gems, shops and cafés reveal themselves; particular highlights to see-out include the impressive town hall, the churches of St Barbara and St Fran, and the piece de resistance: Cathedral Sveti Jakov. Built in the early 15th century, UNESCO-listed Sveti Jakov is considered one of Croatia’s finest and most important Renaissance-era landmarks, built from limestone and marble under the supervision of the great Croatian stone masters Juraj Dalmatinac and Nikola Firentinac.

Venice sunset

Venice, Italy Tue 12 Oct 2021

Venice sunset

With a maze of canals threaded through the city and hints of history to be found on every corner, it’s easy to see why Venice is considered one of the most beautiful and charming destinations in the world.

Chioggia, Italy

Chioggia Wed 13 Oct 2021

Chioggia, Italy

Away from the tourist-packed attractions of Venice, the laidback island town of Chioggia offers a slice of authentic Venetian lifestyle with none of the hustle and bustle. With pretty canals to explore and historic architecture to admire, it’s a wonderful place to spend a relaxing day in the Adriatic sunshine. Situated south of Venice in the Venetian Lagoon, the unpretentious Chioggia may be similar in appearance to its iconic neighbour, but represents a very different experience. The city offers a Venetian lifestyle at a slower, easier pace. The busy fishing marinas and pedestrianised alleyways lined with historic buildings and traditional terracotta-topped houses, are a delight

Split, Croatia

Split, Croatia Thu 14 Oct 2021

Split, Croatia

In the heart of Dalmatia, the largest Croatian city on the Adriatic coast dates back to the days of Diocletian. The old town is built around the harbour and much of the old city remains to this day. A visit to the Roman Palace of Emperor Diocletian is well worth a visit. Other notable site include the cathedral; the Temple of Jupiter; the Golden Gate; the Silver Gate; and Peristyle Square.

Cruises to Croatia

Dubrovnik, Croatia Fri 15 Oct 2021

Cruises to Croatia

There's no mistaking the past wealth and proud spirit of this ‘Jewel of the Adriatic', perched on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast. An independent city-state for 600 years until conquered by Napoleon, Dubrovnik survives, despite recent events, as one of Europe's best preserved medieval cities - a timeless architectural showpiece, whose graceful churches and cloisters, palaces and fountains, mellow Baroque facades and encircling ancient walls, all seem more stage set than reality.

Monopoli

Monopoli, Apulia, Italy Sat 16 Oct 2021

Monopoli

With its imposing, fortress-like appearance and busy fishing harbour, Monopoli perfectly contrasts the many beach resorts and sleepy towns situated along Puglia’s beautiful Adriatic Coast. While it may not have quite the same visual appeal as many of the picturesque locations found along the coast, this city reveals its own charms to those who take the time to delve into its heart. As you wander the streets between the white-fronted buildings, and explore the harbour, you get a feel for Monopoli’s rich history, which dates back well before Roman times, and can sense the prosperity provided by the thriving local fishing trade. The Old Town in particular is a delight to explore; this area is dominated by the mid-16th century Castello Carlo V castle, while the Baroque-Romanesque cathedral and its towering belfry – built in 1693 – is an unmissable highlight.

Cartagena, Spain Wed 20 Oct 2021

Today Spain's major commercial port and naval base, Cartagena lies on the coast of Murcia, its great indented bay guarded by rocky promontories, each topped by a fort. Founded in 221 BC by Hasdrubal, leader of the Carthaginians (hence the name) from North Africa, it has a fascinating history - and as Nova Carthage was long the Romans' principal settlement in their Iberian stronghold. Attractive promenades extend along the harbour, while to the northeast is the famous beach and watersports resort area of the lagoon-like Mar Menor.

Follow in the footsteps of the world’s greatest explorers as you wind your way through Lisbon’s cobblestone streets. Take in the tree-lined squares, ancient castles and colourful cityscape of Portugal’s capital city.

Oporto, Portugal

Leixoes (for Oporto), Portugal Sat 23 Oct 2021

Oporto, Portugal

A short journey from Leixões takes you into the heart of Oporto, with its fortress-like Cathedral and the Baroque Church of Clérigos. Head to the historic Ribeira District, where the narrow, cobbled lanes wind their way down to the Douro River. Don’t forget to visit one of the many wine cellars for a taste of the tipple named after the city, Port. On the ground floor of the Museu Romantico is the Port Wine Institute, where port is served with great ceremony. Oporto sits deep in the gorge of the River Douro and on the riverside – dominated by the two-level Luis I bridge – it’s possible to look up at the narrow old town streets climbing out of the valley. Pastel-fronted houses with red-tiled roofs line the streets, mixed with neo-classical buildings and wonderful baroque churches. Dominating the centre of the city is the fortress-like Cathedral, which is worth visiting for the views alone.

Aviles, Spain

Aviles, Spain Mon 25 Oct 2021

Aviles, Spain

The Spanish city of Avilés in the north-western province of Asturias, is steeped in history and architectural gems just waiting to be discovered. A former maritime and farming town, the scenic city of Avilés is now one of the country’s most important industrial centres. The city centre remains stylish and easy to navigate, with plenty of high street stores, pretty cafes and a number of museums and galleries to visit, while the Old Town quarter is Aviles’ finest feature. Largely pedestrianised, the Old Town consists of several historic squares and plazas, interlinked by a series of pretty boulevards from centuries past. The collection of stunning historic buildings includes the Camposagrado Palace, the Palacio de Valdecarzana – Avilés’ sole example of civil medieval architecture – plus a number of outstanding Gothic churches such as San Nicolás and San Francisco.
