Fly from Cork to Majorca and spend seven nights on board the Marella Discovery 2 on this Coastal Gems cruise to Corsica, Italy, France and the Balearic Islands.
Palma: think leafy boulevards that echo with the stilettos of stylish shoppers. Tiny tapas bars tucked down narrow sidestreets. Architectural gold hidden in the historic quarter. With its trademark cathedral dominating the skyline, cosmopolitan Palma never fails to impress.
Sandwiched between Sardinia and the top of Italy’s boot, Propriano delivers a taste of the go-slow Mediterranean lifestyle. It’s a far cry from Corsica’s busiest coastal stop-offs, but the pretty marina and rolling green hills will have you reaching for your camera. There’s a tropical feel to the beaches, with white stretches of sand all around the turquoise bay.
Piombino is the gateway to the Tuscan cities of Siena and Pisa. Hilly Siena is packed with Gothic architecture, Medieval monuments and hundreds of restaurants. Pisa, meanwhile, is home to the legendary leaning tower.
The party port of Cannes is all about the see-and-be-seen lifestyle. As such it comes with a marina packed with millionaires’ yachts, super-cars purring through the streets and a shopping scene that’s all about names.
The town of Sete circles the hill of Mont St-Clare, which offers panoramic views over a lagoon, a couple of mountain ranges and the Mediterranean Sea. Miles of sandy beaches roll out south from Sete, and Blue Flags skewer the closest ones.
Climb Mont St-Clair for the best views in town. You’ll spy the port and the Cévennes and Pyrenees mountain ranges on a clear day.
Ibiza’s capital is the antidote to wild resorts like San Antonio and Playa D’en Bossa. Its old quarter has earned a place on the UNESCO World Heritage list, and it’s haloed by Medieval stone walls and topped by a fairytale-looking fortress. Down on the waterfront, meanwhile, you’ll find chic seafood restaurants and one-off boutiques.
