The Acropolis, Plaka neighbourhood, the ancient Agora, the Temple of Hephaestus and the Herod Atticus Odeon are all places worth a visit. Or just find the best spot to get some moussaka, horiatiki (Greek salad), souvlakis and a drink.

The next stop is Corfu, the lush and verdant island in the Ionian Sea, and then Messina, on the Italian island of Sicily, another destination that shows a clash of cultures and styles. Don’t miss a visit to the 12th-century Annunziata dei Catalani Church. Travel to Naples next, a bustling metropolis famed for its stately buildings, crowded streets, and authentic pizza. The following stop is Barcelona, in Spain, where you can stroll along the wide, tree-lined promenades of Las Ramblas and marvel at the spires of Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia church. Travel to France and stop in Marseille, the gateway to Provence, a place that offers landmarks such as the Palais Longchamp and the Basilica of Notre-Dame of la Garde. The cruise will take you back to Italy, where you will access places like Genoa, Pisa (via La Spezia), Florence and Rome (via Civitavecchia).

Montenegro's Kotor lies at the head of Boka Bay. Bordered by towering limestone cliffs, the winding bay is actually Southern Europe's longest and most dramatic fjord. The port itself is a mediaeval gem: its narrow, asymmetrical streets are lined with ancient stone houses, old palaces and churches dating from the 12th century. Kotor is also a gateway to the cultural and scenic wonders of Montenegro, from the old royal capital at Cetinje to the marshes and wildlife of Lake Skadar National Park.

Corfu Town boasts fortresses bearing the insignia of the Venetian Republic, an esplanade lavishly planted by the French during the Napoleonic Wars, and an English cricket pitch. The island also offers some of the finest coastal scenery in the entire Mediterranean.

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Day 9 Sicily (Messina), Italy

Arrive: 08:00 - Departs: 18:00

Messina has played a major role in European history since its founding as a Greek colony in the 8th century BC. During the Roman Empire, the city was a major port and commercial centre, and during the Middle Ages, Messina was the major port of departure for Crusaders. History has also left its scars: a massive earthquake levelled much of the city in 1908 and the World War II campaign for Sicily devastated Messina. Yet this city emerged from that devastation with some of its historic treasures intact, including the 12th-century Annunziata dei Catalani Church. Messina is also your gateway to the rugged beauty of southeast Sicily, from the seaside resort of Taormina to Mt Etna.

Between the fall of Rome and the 1861 unification of Italy, the Arabs, the Normans, the Germans, the Spanish and the French ruled Sicily.

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Naples is also your gateway to the Isle of Capri, the fabled Amalfi Coast and the ruins of Pompeii, buried in ash by the cataclysmic eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Vibrant and earthy, commercial and cultural, this city of two million residents is the capital of Spain's autonomous region of Catalonia. Stroll along the wide, tree-lined promenades of Las Ramblas and marvel at the spires of Gaudi's Basilica La Sagrada Familia.

Day 14 Gibraltar

Arrives: 07:00 - Departs: 16:00

The Rock crouches over the sea like an ancient stone beast, looking Sphinx-like to Africa. Beneath the white cliffs of this natural fortress grows a profusion of palm, pine and cypress. No fewer than 600 varieties of flowers thrive here, some not found anywhere else on Earth. Gibraltar's stunning setting is matched by its history - five countries have battled for 13 centuries to control the passage between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. The result made for a cultural melting pot. Veiled Moroccan women in caftans and vacationing Englishmen and Spaniards stroll along the narrow, steep lanes. The locals revert to a liquid Spanish when talking among themselves. And visitors to a 15th-century cathedral pass through a blue-tiled courtyard, once part of a 13th-century mosque.

Helmeted bobbies, pillar-boxes and pubs make for a bit of Britain in the Mediterranean. Gibraltar is a fascinating place, from its caves and batteries to the Barbary apes gambolling on the slopes of the Rock.

Dominating the harbour is the infamous Chateau d'If, the rocky prison from which Alexandre Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo escaped. Marseille is also your gateway to Provence. Explore the countryside around Arles and Avignon, immortalised in the canvases of Van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso.

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Meals included: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 17 Genoa, Italy

Arrives: 08:00 - Departs: 20:00

Genoa is the capital of the Province of Genoa and of the region of Liguria. Many regard Genoa as having the largest historic city centre in Europe as a result of having been, for centuries, a powerful commercial centre, seaport and city-state. It was the birthplace of Christopher Columbus and its maritime roots have fostered a dialect that has absorbed elements of Neapolitan, Calabrese and Portuguese over the centuries.

Genoa's harbour is a bustling swarm of activity, which makes it a great launching point for the sprawling metropolis of Milan.

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Meals included: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 18 Florence/ Pisa (La Spezia), Italy

Arrives: 07:00 - Departs: 19:00

A former fishing village at the border of two enchanting regions, La Spezia offers easy access to Tuscany and its great cities like Florence, Pisa, plus the Liguria's rugged coast and terraced villages known as Cinque Terre. Situated to the east of Cinque Terre, and sidling up to the exquisite Lerici and Tellaro, this hard-working port town is home to Italy's largest naval base. Unspoiled and unhurried, this hidden gem boasts beautiful scenery, a historical centre full of architectural delights, and winding streets dotted with plenty of cosy trattorias showcasing the Ligurian kitchen's finest.

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Meals included: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 19 Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

Your gateway to the Eternal City, Civitavecchia has served as Rome's seaport since the 13th century. The port has a long and venerable history. The emperor Trajan built a pleasure villa near the modern city, while Bernini and Michelangelo designed the harbour fortifications.

Yet the Eternal City beckons. The ancient capital of the Western World and the centre of Christianity for nearly 2,000 years, Rome provides an inexhaustible feast. Visit the ruins of the Forum, view the splendours of the Sistine Chapel, or climb the Spanish Steps, once the heart of Rome's Bohemian Quarter.

Rome has been a magnet luring the world's greatest artists, architects, and philosophers since the days of the Caesars.

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Meals included: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 22 Santorini, Greece

Tendered: 0900 - 22:00

Did the catastrophic volcanic eruption that ravaged Santorini circa 1600 BC destroy Crete's ancient Minoan civilization - and give birth to the myth of Atlantis? In 1967, archaeologists on Santorini unearthed the remains of a Bronze Age city that may have been home to as many as 30,000 people. Whether the Lost Continent of Atlantis is rooted in myth or reality, an undisputed fact remains. The eruption created a caldera - and one of the most dramatic land and seascapes in the entire Mediterranean. On Santorini, whitewashed buildings cling to vertiginous cliffs that plunge to a turquoise sea. Part of the Cyclades Archipelago, the three-island group of Santorini, Thirasia and uninhabited Aspronisi present the traveller with unforgettable vistas.

The island has had a number of names throughout history - from Strongyle or "Round" to Thera in honour of an ancient hero. Santorini is more recent and stems from the island church dedicated to St. Irene - Santa Rini to foreign sailors.

Note: Santorini is an anchorage port: passengers transfer to shore via shore tender.

Day 24 Istanbul, Turkey

Arrives: 07:00 - Departs: 17:00

Istanbul rises from the Bosphorus, a vision of minarets and domes sparkling in the light. The capital of vanished empires, Istanbul is a true crossroad, the only city on Earth to span two continents. This meeting place of Europe and Asia, of Christian and Muslim, is one of the great adventures a traveller encounters. Browse the stalls of the world's largest bazaar, explore ancient mosques and churches, and gaze at the stunning jewels in the Topkapi Palace.

Istanbul has dominated the Straits of Bosphorus for 25 centuries. As Constantinople, capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, it was a metropolis of stunning splendour when the great cities of Europe were mere villages.

Overnight: Princess Cruises ‘Sun Princess’

Meals included: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 25 Mykonos, Greece

Arrives: 12:00 - Departs: 21:00

Thanks to its proximity to the mainland, Mykonos was one of the first Greek islands to become an international travel destination. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Mykonos was famed as a haunt for the rich. The island's nightlife - then and now - was a glittering whirl of coloured lights, music and parties. But there's another side to Mykonos - the neighbouring island of Delos. In classical mythology, Delos was the birthplace of Apollo and his twin sister Artemis. Travellers to Delos can stroll among the island's vast ruins, which include three temples consecrated to the Sun God and the famed Lions Walk.

Mykonos town features hip boutiques, restaurants, jewellery stores, souvenirs, taverns and cafés. The island's famed windmills are found just south of the waterfront.
