Map

  • In Cyprus see the 15th-century Venetian Walls that ring Old Nicosia and explore the old quarter.
  • Visit the Paphos Archaeological Park, where an impressive collection of Roman relics is adjacent to the harbour.
  • Go to the Troodos Mountains and see the mountaintop Monastery of Kykkos.
  • Travel around not only Malta but also its second (and quieter) island, Gozo.
  • Gaze across Malta’s Grand Harbour, where one of the great battles took place between Christians and Muslims.
  • Visit Marsaxlokk, a charming fishing village famous for its brightly coloured fishing boats.
  • Take time to explore the fascinating island of Sicily.
  • Stroll through numerous picturesque towns and villages.
  • Discover a rich treasure of mosaics that bring the Roman world to life.
  • Be inspired by Agrigento’s line of Greek temples on the skyline.
  • Take a boat ride to Mozia, to visit a Phoenician settlement on the island.
  • Walk around the old heart of Palermo with a local guide, visiting its main monuments including the entrance to Palermo Cathedral.
  • In Taormina visit the ancient Greek Amphitheatre, set on a cliff and open to the sky.
  • Travel up Mt Etna and be guided through this area by an expert on volcanic activity.
  • In Sardinia enjoy a walking tour of Alghero’s historic centre, encompassed by fawn-hued fortified city walls.
  • Stop in the typically Sardinian town of Castelsardo, which has a breathtaking setting on the hilltop of a headland overlooking the Mediterranean.
  • Have a guided walking tour of Cagliari; its historic heart, the Castello, is cradled by ancient ramparts which enclose some beautiful architectural gems and historical treasures.

We were completely happy with her care and attention. She has a lovely personality, and we would happily go on another tour with her.

Helen was great, never appeared hassled although she must have felt it at times. Always clear with instructions and showed concern for each of the group and very willing to sort any problems. Really well prepared and organised.
