Day Date Port Arrive Depart
1 - Monday 12 August Athens (Piraeus) 18:00
Piraeus is 12 kilometers south-west of Athens and is the city's port. The port town itself has a long nautical history, as told in the Maritime Museum, and close to the port is the area of Piralki and its fish taverns. Walking beyond the peninsula, the coast is dotted with picturesque creeks. The hillside area of Kastella has narrow alleys, the church of Profitis Ilias and fantastic views of the Acropolis.
2 - Tuesday 13 August Hydra (Greece) 08:00 13:00
This interesting island has no roads or vehicles, and the only transportation is by donkey. It has a wild and sparsely populated interior, and some magnificent mansions built by 19th-century shipping magnets. In the 50s and 60s it was a favourite haunt for artists, among them Leonard Cohen, who were inspired by its natural beauty. There are coves and beaches close to Hydra Town.

Amalfi is one of the most popular resorts along the famous Amalfi coast. It has a superb setting beneath the mountains, and a great deal of charm. The Duomo is a marvel of ancient Arab-Moorish architecture and dominates the lively central piazza, and narrow lanes and steep terraces of brightly-painted houses lead down to the sea, restaurants and fashionable cafes.

7 - Sunday 18 August Bonifacio (France) 09:00 18:00
When arriving by sea, Bonifacio's Haute Ville is a spectacular sight, a citadel perched on high white cliffs. It has old churches, winding streets with arcades and arches, and upmarket boutiques. There is a small train from the old town at the port up to the Haute Ville, and also boat trips to the grottos and caves along the coast. Alternatively, for a small fee, visitors can take the 187-steps of the 'Staircase of the King of Aragon' from the town to the citadel.
8 - Monday 19 August Civitavecchia (Rome, Italy) 07:00
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.
