Finally, end in Sicily, a cultural fusion of Middle Eastern, North African and European heritage.

Itinerary

Lisbon
Day 1
Spread over seven hills with São Jorge Castle views, bustling Lisbon is one of the world's oldest cities. Elegant Baixa, hilltop Alfama with its yellow tram, and scenic Graça overviewing pastel buildings, are top areas. The Jerónimos Monastery in Belém is a World Heritage Gothic site. The classic Portuguese pastel de nata custard tarts are a local treat. Europe’s longest suspension bridge, the Ponte 25 de Abril, crosses the river Tagus.
Portimao
Day 2
The Algarve’s second-most populous city of Portimao is best known for its historic quarter and dates back to the time of the Phoenicians. With the aroma of freshly cooked sardines drifting through the streets, Portimao is a wonderful spot for downtime. The city's Museum de Portico is housed in a 19th century cannery. Further into town, Praia da Rocha is one of the Algarve’s most beautiful beaches.
Seville
Day 3-4
A city renowned for passion, culture and flamenco, Seville’s intoxicating atmosphere will infuse even the weariest traveller with a celebratory spirit. The capital of Andalusia is revered for the grandeur of its monuments as well as for exquisite tapas dishes. The magnificent Catedral de Sevilla lords over the historic centre a short distance from the Alcázar (palace), a royal complex of rooms and gardens hidden behind modest terracotta walls.
Ceuta
Day 5
Oran
Day 6
The port city of Oran is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Rai folk music. Influenced by Islamic, Haussmann and Spanish occupants, its complex history unfolds in the winding maze of the Casbah, at Saint-Louis d’Oran, which has been a mosque, synagogue, church and cathedral, and the beautiful architecture of its mosques, some of the most impressive in Algeria. A waterfront stroll is rewarded with a majestic view of the Bay of Algiers.
Algiers
Day 7
Founded in the 4th century, Algeria's capital, Algiers' UNESCO-listed Kasbah medina features winding streets, whitewashed buildings, Ottoman palaces and a ruined citadel. Other landmarks include the Great Mosque with a 14th-century minaret, the neo-Moorish Grande Poste and seafront fishermen's houses. Nearby, Tipaza, a former Carthaginian and Roman trading hub, is an archaeological site with a semi-circular theatre framed by the Med.
Bejaia
Day 8
A busy market town in Algeria's Kabylie region, Béjaïa has one of the largest Berber-speaking populations. A vast statue commemorates the Algerian War of Independence. The city's tumultuous history is outlined in the Béjaïa Museum, while relics of the past, including ancient caves, dot the outskirts of the city. Nearby Gouraya National Park hosts a colony of endangered Barbary macaques.
Annaba
Day 9
The Algerian port city of Annaba, known as Bône during the French occupation, has a rich 3,000-year history. French influence is evident, from Parisian-style nightlife on the Cours de la Revolution to the Basilica of Augustine, reminiscent of Paris’ Sacre Coeur. Nearby, the sprawling ruins of the ancient city of Hippo Regius feature Roman baths and villas. The Commonwealth War Cemetery honours WWII soldiers and airmen who served in the region.
La Goulette
Day 10
La Goulette port is the gateway to Tunisia's capital, Tunis, said to date to the 2nd millennium BC. Tunis shows its layered history in Parisian style café culture and Medina's traditional ways. Nearby ancient Carthage, a powerful rival to Rome, was the richest Phoenician city before Rome re-established it as a colony. Dating back to 900 BC, this fascinating UNESCO-listed Carthage Archaeological Park preserves Roman ruins, baths and artefacts.
Palermo, Sicily
Day 11
A feast for the senses, Sicily’s capital is an intoxicating and chaotic melting pot offering up centuries of history and a street food bonanza. Three bustling markets Capo, Bollaro and Vucciria await those ready to embrace Palermo for all that it offers. Narrow side streets lead to hidden palaces and churches along Via Maqueda. The Palazzo dei Normanni, once the seat of Sicilian kings during Norman rule, showcases the city’s past opulence.
