Voyage to the Mediterranean
Glorious art and architecture, fascinating chapters of European history, even a little piece of Britain promise to make this an enlightening cruise as Discovery heads south to the Mediterranean Sea. First at the helm Leixoes is a springboard to Porto and Guimaraes at the heart of Portugal’s earliest history. One of the Pillars of Hercules, Gibraltar stands guard where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. Echoes of Carthaginian general Hannibal can still be heard in Cartagena, the city the Romans called Cartho Nove. Finally vibrant Barcelona where an eclectic mix of architectural styles somehow blend harmoniously.
