Arrive Valletta, Malta

Palermo | Timeless Architecture & Art

Today explore Palermo, Sicily’s vibrant capital, forged largely by the Arabs, the Swabian Dynasty and the Normans. Admire the noble palaces lining the magnificent streets, while cheerful Art Nouveau houses stand in contrast to Baroque and Gothic architecture. See how the medieval quarter towers above the huge Palazzo Reale with its Capella Palatina, a masterpiece erected in the Arab-Byzantine-Norman style. Continue to the small mountain town of Monreale, taking in breathtaking vistas of the bay. Behold its 12th-century cathedral, which features an ornate interior that melds Romanesque, Byzantine and Arab art with rich gold mosaics.

Cagliari, Sardinia | Picturesque Towns & Beaches

Discover the port and university town of Cagliari, home to one of the most modern opera houses in the Mediterranean. Behind the Via Roma — a boulevard lined with shady arcades and classical architecture — lies the dock area, its narrow lanes bustling with life. View the Old Town of Castello, which extends up a hillside, and the imposing Bastione di Saint Remy, which towers over the town. Nearby, marvel at one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Then, venture inland to unearth cultural treasures, like the ancient town of Nora, dating from the ninth century BC.

Nearby the sophisticated marina, find the Gothic cathedral, La Seu, its interior fashioned by Antonio Gaudí at the start of the 20th century.

Day 9
Valencia | Picturesque Port City

Arrive in Valencia, where centuries-old architecture mingles with unmistakable modernity. Disembark and visit Valencian Gothic-style Llotja de la Seda, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and former silk exchange that bears witness to the city’s wealth in the Middle Ages. Then, take a scenic stroll along the old river bed, drained in the 1950s when the Great Flood of Valencia occurred. Today, it’s lined with trails, gardens and athletic fields — not to mention avant-garde buildings that include a futuristic opera house, the largest aquarium in Europe, a botanical garden and a public park. Valencia is one of the few cities that boasts a heritage of over 2,000 years — and no other city in Europe can proudly make the claim that the America's Cup has taken place twice right on its front door.
