Indulge yourself with some Mediterranean charm on this unique 10-day voyage aboard the Sea Cloud. Discover the many facets of Syracuse, a beautiful city located at the small island of Ortigia, conquered first by the Romans, then by Arabs, Byzantines, and Normans. This left behind a unique architectural heritage that UNESCO declared a World Heritage Site in 2005 due to its archaeological importance. Explore the narrow streets of Palermo’s historic center and visit the Cappella Palatina. Its richness is simply overwhelming: the erstwhile royal chapel is decorated with elements of both Christian and Islamic style, artistic carvings, and marble floors. Finally, set set to Valencia, Spain and visit "La Lonja de la Seda" the old silk market before disembarking.

Day 1 La Valletta, Malta | Embark

Arrive in La Valletta and transfer to your ship. Settle into your cabin and attend a welcome dinner as the ship sets sail.

Day 2 Syracuse & Sicily, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The municipal area of Syracuse boasts relics from cultural history going back more than three millennia. In ancient times, the city was the most powerful in the known world and was famed for its splendor. The island of Ortigia, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was where Syracuse began its rise as an ancient city. The huge cathedral is at the heart of the old town, magnificent palaces line the Piazza, and wide promenades invite you to take a stroll. The archaeological park brings Greek and Roman history back to life. Yet Syracuse exudes southern Italian charm, with washing drying outside the windows.

Day 3 Lipari & Aeolian Islands, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Lipari is a tranquil little spot and the largest of the Aeolian Islands, with a cultural heritage stretching back over 6,000 years. Right from first glance you can see its volcanic heritage, with some of the rock formations resembling sculptures, and the entire group of islands is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Aeolian Museum is set on the castle hill and holds an impressive collection of prehistoric and ancient artifacts from this volcanic group of islands. You will find the southern Italian way of life in this little port infectious.

Day 4 Palermo & Sicily, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The character of Palermo, Sicily's vibrant capital, was mainly forged by the Arabs, Swabian dynasty, and Normans. Noble palaces line the magnificent streets, cheerful-looking Art Nouveau houses stand next to Baroque buildings, and a little further on you are faced with pure Gothic facades. The medieval quarter towers above the huge Palazzo Reale with its "Capella Palatina", a masterpiece in the Arab-Byzantine-Norman style. The small mountain town of Monreale gives you a breathtaking view over the town and the bay, as well as the 12th century cathedral whose interior combines Romanesque, Byzantine, and Arab art with rich gold mosaics.

Day 5 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 6 Cagliari & Sardinia, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Cagliari is a port and university town and, with one of the most modern opera houses in the Mediterranean, is also a renowned cultural city. Behind the Via Roma, a boulevard with shady arcades and classical facades, lies the dock area whose narrow lanes bustle with life. The old town is called Castello and extends picturesquely up the hill. The immense Bastione San Remy towers over the town. Not far from the center is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean and inland you will find glittering cultural treasures, like the ancient town of Nora dating from the 9th century BC.

Day 7 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 8 Palma de Mallorca, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Majorca's beautiful capital is an elegant city and its picturesque old town and architectural mix of Arab, Catalan, and Art Nouveau elements are part of its success story. In the center you will be lured by shops behind splendid facades, and cafés and bars set on beautiful squares invite you to stay a while. Not far from the sophisticated marina you will find the dignified cathedral, affectionately known as "La Seu" for short. With pure Gothic beginnings, none other than Antonio Gaudi created part of its interior at the start of the 20th century.

Day 9 Valencia, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
On one corner its centuries old and around the next totally modern - Valencia is everything all at once. Today the beautiful old town and the old silk market "La Lonja de la Seda", which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, still bear witness to the city's wealth in the Middle Ages. A brand new part of the city is situated in a drained river bed and has avant-garde buildings including a futuristic opera house, the largest aquarium in Europe, a botanical garden and a public park. Valencia is one of the few cities that has a heritage of over 2,000 years and is also so intriguingly combined with the future. And no other city in Europe can proudly make the claim that America's Cup has already taken place twice right on its front door.

Day 10 Valencia, Spain | Disembark

Disembark after breakfast. Transfer into town or to the airport for your continued independent journeys.
