Thursday 24 Sep - Barcelona, Spain
The infinite variety of street life, the nooks and crannies of the medieval Barri Gòtic, the ceramic tile and stained glass of Art Nouveau facades, the art and music, the throb of street life, the food (ah, the food!)—one way or another, Barcelona will find a way to get your full attention. The capital of Catalonia is a banquet for the senses, with its beguiling mix of ancient and modern architecture, tempting cafés and markets, and sun-drenched Mediterranean beaches. A stroll along La Rambla and through waterfront Barceloneta, as well as a tour of Gaudí's majestic Sagrada Famíliaand his other unique creations, are part of a visit to Spain's second-largest city. Modern art museums and chic shops call for attention, too. Barcelona's vibe stays lively well into the night, when you can linger over regional wine and cuisine at buzzing tapas bars

Saturday 26 Sep - Sete, France | 8am - 7pm
Surrounded by water, Sete is a Mediterranean fishing capital and a port with maritime heritage flowing through its salty veins. Set on a lagoon beside the Mediterranean's waves, Sete's streets are interspersed with canals, and the historic Canal du Midi terminates here. Canal boats joust on the river during August’s festival, in this working city of breezy nautical charm. Known as the Venice of Languedoc, house facades front up against canal banks, while leisurely cruises offer romantic trips through this colourful, maritime city. The ascent of Mount St-Clair is perhaps the best spot to appreciate this wonderful, watery setting, and you can also take in the bright frescoes of Chapel of Notre Dame de la Salette while you're there. Or, absorb the town’s deep fishing heritage with a harbour walk among the bobbing little boats, or within the preserved La Pointe Courte fisherman’s village

Sunday 27 Sep - Marseille (Provence), France | 8am - 11pm
France’s sunniest and oldest city may not have the glamour of some of its Cote D’Azur neighbours, but what it lacks in glitz, it certainly makes up for in authenticity and cultural depth. France's second-biggest city, Marseille served as European Capital of Culture in 2013 and is a fantastic hub of museums, creativity and colour. The Le Panier district is a vivid illustration of this - with its faded streets revitalised by overflowing flowerpots and pretty naturally-distressed doorways. Look down to the yacht-crammed port - where fishermen still unload fresh catches - from the viewpoint at the spectacular Notre-Dame de la Garde - a true crowning glory. Standing over walled fortifications - and capped by an elegant dome - the soaring golden statue of Madonna and Child rises high into the air and is visible all over the city. The huge Marseille Cathedral is equally impressive, with its stunning zebra-striped exterior

Monday 28 Sep - Saint Tropez, France | 8am - 10pm
A glitzy, glamorous coastal resort that needs no introduction, Saint Tropez is the French Riviera hotspot of choice for A-listers and flotillas of gleaming yachts. The sparkle of its beaches, and clarity of its light, continues to attract artists - but it was the famous presence of Brigitte Bardot that leant Saint Tropez its enduring glamour and steamy appeal. Nowadays, speedboats skim offshore, while fine vintages from the vineyards nearby are uncorked in top-notch restaurants, in this well-heeled highlight of the Cote d'Azur. Famous bars offer views of the port along Quai Jean Jaurès, with its iconic cherry-red directors' chairs. Here you can admire the monstrous wealth of yachts that sparkle on the waters. On the same corner, big-name brand labels glimmer in the shops of rue François Sibilli - which cuts inland from the charming waterfront.

Tuesday 29 Sep - Portovenere (Cinqueterre),  Italy | 8am - 11pm
Scattered along the dramatic emerald Ligurian coastline, the five towns of the Cinque Terre sprawl down cliffs, and splash bursts of colour into mountains that drop off abruptly to gently bobbing waves below. Set above the rich blue water, this precious gathering of fishing villages is a wonder of the Italian coastline. Connected by rail, hiking trail and sea, cars have been largely eschewed and traditions kept alive on this romantic coastal stretch, where each of the interlinked towns preserves its own distinct personality. Portovenere - itself a gorgeous, colourful fishing village - is the gateway to the five towns, which cling to the cliffs of this terraced landscape. Monterosso is the largest, and you can sunbathe on its sandy beach, or explore the town's gorgeous Medieval core. Vernazza is one of the smallest, but perhaps the most pretty and elegant

Wednesday 30 Sep - Livorono (Tuscany), Italy | 8am - 7pm
There are few more elegant places to salute the sunset than Terrazza Mascagni, Livorno’s refined chessboard piazza. A historic port, and a beachy gateway to Tuscany, Livorno welcomes you ashore to explore this enchanted Italian region's sun-soaked beauty, rich flavours and world-renowned fine art. Stay in Livorno to explore 'Piccolo Venezia', or ‘Little Venice’ - a quarter of the town that's laced with canals, little marble bridges and plenty of tempting eateries. With its bustling market, fortresses and iconic waterfront, there’s plenty to keep you busy here, but most will be tempted to venture inland to explore more of Tuscany’s many charms and artistic wonders. Test your nose, as you breathe in the subtleties of Tuscany’s vineyard-draped scenery, and visit wineries showcasing the best of the renowned flavours of the Bolgheri wine-growing area. Or head out to Prato, where you’ll find tightly-woven textile history.
Thursday 1 Oct - Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy | Arrives 7am 
All roads lead to Rome, and with good reason - this city is one of the world’s most thrilling, offering unmatched history along every street. An evocative, inspiring and utterly artistic capital of unrivalled cultural impact, Rome is a city of back-to-back landmarks, which will take you on an exhilarating journey through the ages. This may be one of the world’s oldest cities, but it’s well and truly lived in. The ruins are punctuated with murmuring cafes, and the outdoor seating of restaurants sprawls out across piazzas, enticing you to sample tangles of creamy pasta and crispy pizzas. Rome’s incredible Roman Forum is littered with the ruins of its ancient administrations, which have stood firm for 2,000 years, since the times when the area was the centre of the Western world. Few sites are more simultaneously beautiful and haunting than that of the storied Colosseum, which looms deep into Rome’s rich blue sky.
