The glorious buildings along the Grand Canal are a breathtaking sight - the ornate fa'ades of 15th century Palazzo Dario and Ca' d'Oro, the Rialto and St Mark's Square and Basilica.

The red-roofed city of Dubrovnik can be admired from the walkway along its 10th century walls. Below, the elegant, marble-paved Stradun leads to colourful caf's, St Blaise's church, Sponza Palace and the cloistered Franciscan Monastery housing a pharmacy which has been in use since 1316.

5 - Saturday 14 July Valletta (Malta) 0800 2300
Arriving in Valletta, the site of its magnificent Grand Harbour is memorable. The old warehouses of the harbour area now contain a string of elegant restaurants and bars. Uphill is the impressive City Gate, leafy squares and some fine buildings including St John's Cathedral which displays a painting by Caravaggio. Traffic-free Republic Street is the main shopping area, and from the ramparts of Hastings Gardens there are wonderful sea views and a caf'.

Trapani is the western-most fishing and ferry port on the island of Sicily, and was founded in 260BC. It is renowned for its seafood and traditional Sicilian cuisine and although many of the old buildings were destroyed during World War II, some fine palaces survive along the Corso Vittorio Emanuel. The Chieasa del Purgatorio houses the Misteri, the sculptures carried through the town during its famous Good Friday procession, and there are several interesting churches including the Sanctuary of Annunziata.
8 - Tuesday 17 July Sorrento (Italy) 0800 1900
Sorrento lies on a peninsula on the south side of the Bay of Naples, and is the gateway to the picturesque Amalfi Coast, the islands of Ischia and Capri, and the ancient sites of Pompeii and Paestum. Sorrento itself has an unhurried charm, with cafes serving the local tipple, Limoncello in Piazza Tasso. Worth a visit are the Baroque Church del Carmine, the 18th-century villa, Palazzo Correa, and Museo Bottega, which has frescoed vaults and antiquities on display.
9 - Wednesday 18 July Rome (Civitavecchia, Italy) 0800 2000
This busy port is a hub for travel throughout the Mediterranean and has direct rail connections to Rome. In Civitavecchia itself, there is a seafront promenade and beach, a long modern pier and the Archaeological Park of Terme Taurine, where there are Roman baths built by Emperor Hadrian around hot sulphur springs. The town has a good choice of seafood restaurants, and a few kilometers down the coast is the important 9th-century castle of Santa Severa, built on the ancient site of Pyrgi.

There is a Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Nice, and excellent museums, including two dedicated to the works of Matisse and Chagall.
