Grand Springtime Voyage of Discovery
With its unmistakeable skyline punctuated by mosque and minaret, Istanbul is at the forefront of this marvellous cruise that promises a wealth of history, culture and beautiful nature as Discovery follows springtime through Europe back to British shores. Hovering in the air ‘Meteora’ Monasteries are simply breathtaking. Spectacular nature created Santorini, whilst Katakolon opens the door on ancient Greek history. Within the mighty walls of Valletta footprints of Crusaders pave the way to Trapani and its history of Phoenician traders. Sur Nuraxi on Sardinia turns the clock back still further before a Balearic beauty and remarkable legacies of the Moors. The unmistakeable profile of ‘The Rock’ guards the Strait of Gibraltar, Casablanca – a tantalising mix of modern and traditional Moroccan culture, Madeira a colourful canvas of springtime flora and finally glorious landscapes of the delightful Azores.
