Day 1 Malaga, Spain / Embark

Embark this evening and depart.

Day 2 Alicante, Spain

With the blue of the Mediterranean as its border, Alicante lays out its white and blue houses to the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula. Founded by the Greeks then taken by the Romans at the time of the Empire, the city is now an important port. In the vicinity of this Spanish city you will be able to visit the Palmeral of Elche, a huge series of palm groves, some of which are 300 years old. This forest of more than 200,000 species is unique in Europe and was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO in 2000. An illustration of Arab culture from the 4th century and the Byzantines to the present day, this splendid oasis has preserved all its charm thanks to a conservation program and its gradual increase in size over the centuries.

Day 3 Valencia, Spain

Third city of Spain, Valencia has the temperament of a big Mediterranean city which wide avenues encircle the heart of the old town. The city possesses an abundance of harmonious architectural styles, but it is mainly turned to the future with its Palais des Congrès and its Museum of Science and Industry, famous for its futuristic structures emerging from a crystalline blue swimming pool.

Day 4 Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Spain

Since the Carthaginians, Ibiza keeps on seducing and still arouses so much emotion when discovering its white silhouette from the sea. In spite of its reputation and the eccentricity of some of its tourists, the island stays a real natural paradise with its magnificent beaches, its creeks lost between dunes and saltworks.

Day 5 Palma de Majorca, Spain

Cultural center of Balearic Islands and modern metropolis with a cosmopolitan atmosphere, Palma of Majorca offers itself entirely to visitors. During a stroll in the heart of the old town, you will guess its history by walking on its pavements and by walking around its old walls.

Day 6 Barcelona, Spain

Your first port of call is Barcelona (Spain). The paths of great masters such as Picasso, Dali and Gaudi have crossed here, and the city’s lively cosmopolitan character ensures its status as an unsurpassed center of culture.

Day 7 Palamos, Spain

The beautiful Palamos Bay comes to break the cliffs dominating the Costa Brava. This small village was established there, during the XIIth century. This former fishermen's village shelters nowadays beaches and creeks of turquoise waters, with the same medieval plan of its old town.

Day 8 Marseille, France / Disembark

After breakfast this morning disembark for your continued journey home.
