Situated at the base of the Al Qara Mountains, Salahah is a city filled with charm and charisma. The City offers beautiful beaches, traditional Islamic architecture, mountains covered in frankincense trees, historical trips to the Marneef Caves and lots more. A trip to the tomb of Hiob with a stop off at the unforgettable blow holes will leave you amazed at this City’s beauty
Day 7-8: At Sea
Day 9: Aqaba
Aqaba is an historical city with dusty, sandy hills and stunning white beaches. Full of history and natural beauty, the town is home to Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This city is 2,200 years old and carved out of the surrounding cliffs. Visit Wadi Rum, an extraordinary desert and mountain region taking you past endless mountains and dunes.

Day 13: Limassol
The city of Limassol has some fascinating ancient ruins to explore. Governor’s Beach has a view of the beautiful white stone coast to the west, and there are several beach-side fish restaurants to be found. There are festivals throughout the year and many of the taverns host traditional live music.

Day 16: Civitavecchia (Rome)
Civitavecchia (Rome) is often described as the Eternal City and is filled with breath taking treasurers of almost every description – The Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica, the Colosseum, and the Trevi Fountain where a tossed coin promises your return to this city of Romance. Take a walk along the famous (and expensive) Via Veneto which came to fame in the 1960’ as the centre of la dolce vita (the sweet life) attracting jet setters and stars from around the world. Tour its many historical landmarks and enjoy the food, the culture, the ambiance, and the surrounding scenery. There is no doubt you’ll learn the meaning of la dolce vita when you visit Rome.
Day 17: At Sea
Day 18: Barcelona
Barcelona combines everything that is most charming about Mediterranean cities – a relaxed pace, months of endless sunshine, unbeatable food – with the cultural and design sophistication of almost any city in the northern hemisphere. Its patchwork of architectural styles displays dark, Gothic facades next to the harlequin buildings of the Modernistas and the skyline-piercing constructions of Jean Novel or Herzog and de Meuron, and a day spent admiring them can be topped off with a sun-downer on one of the city’s seven beaches before dinner at any number of Michelin-starred gastronomic temples or humble, family-run tapas bars.
Day 19: At Sea
Day 20: Lisbon
Lisbon. The wonderful city of Lisbon is simply full of Neoclassical buildings and wide plazas. Famed as the port from which the ships departed on their discovery of the Americas and the New World. Lisbon’s magnificent harbour is spanned by the longest suspension bridge in Europe. Other landmarks include the World Heritage Sites of Belém Tower and Jerónimos Monastery, both built in Lisbon’s native Manueline architectural style
Day 21-22: At Sea
Day 23: Southampton
