Encircled by many of history’s most prominent nations,
the Mediterranean coast is heir to countless jewels. Sailing
this region can show you the birthplaces of conquerors,
ruins of ancient civilisations, impressive monuments to
mythical figures and the works of world-famous architects
and artists. Throughout your exploration, you’ll be among
gorgeous sun-kissed scenes in romantic cities, charming
towns and quaint islands. The Mediterranean region is
unbeaten for its sheer diversity of highlights; you only
need to decide which itinerary appeals the most.
The legends of European history await your discovery in Rome (from Civitavecchia),
Florence (on a tour from Livorno), Amalfi and Corsica – Napoleon Bonaparte’s
birthplace. We’ll take you to the breathtaking Roman palaces of Croatia’s second
city, Split, or the Bronze Age ruins along the emerald coast of Sardinia. The eerie
atmosphere of buried Pompeii, the thrill of a gondola ride along the Venetian canals,
the sheer joy of Mallorca’s Soller Vintage Train and Malta’s fortified medieval city of
Mdina are just a few highlights within this assortment of fabulous destinations.
Our smaller ships often dock closer to the centre of your destination, so you’ll have
more time to seek out the treasures on offer. Seville’s Moorish architecture will leave
you breathless, while taking the time to uncover Gaudi’s masterpieces in Barcelona
is a must. For a spot of indulgence, itineraries to the French Riviera provide perfect
chances to rub shoulders with the rich and famous. And, if you ever wanted to be
a world record-breaker, join Braemar as she navigates the spectacularly narrow
Corinth Canal. Braemar will be the largest ship ever to do so.
Whether you’re uncovering places of historical significance, soaking up the
extravagance of some of the wealthiest European cities or simply relaxing in a
sun-kissed paradise, you won’t fail to be mesmerised by this remarkable region.
