With the exceptional presence of Serge Legat, art historian.

PONANT invites you to discover sumptuous landscapes and exceptional cities during a remarkable 12-day cruise between Malta, Italy, Spain and Portugal. Be inspired by this unforgettable journey aboard Le Champlain, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the Atlantic coast.

From Valletta, you will head for Sicily and Trapani. Perched on a high triangular plateau sloping 750 metres (2,460 feet) to the sea, this medieval city is a labyrinth of polished, paved narrow streets and alleyways with superb views over the Aegadian Islands and the valley.

Le Champlain will then arrive in Cagliari, capital of Sardinia, and one of the largest natural harbours in the Mediterranean; its historic centre is full of charm, with shaded stairs, small squares illuminated with light and remains conjuring up its medieval grandeur.

After a call at Palma de Mallorca, one of the jewels of the Balearic Archipelago, known for its four main islands that are charming, picturesque and discreet, sitting atop the clear waters of the Mediterranean like grains of sand, you will visit Valencia, with its remarkable architectural splendours.

Le Champlain will then chart a course towards Cartagena where you can discover a rich ancient heritage dating back to the Carthaginians and the Romans, before sailing towards Malaga, the lively cultural capital of the Costa del Sol. From the Paleochristian and Roman remains in the area around this famous seaside resort, to the heart of the old town, its history can be read in its buildings, in particular the 10th century castle built by the Moors. You will also have the possibility of strolling through the picturesque town of Ronda and discovering its famous Puente Nuevo.

Next will be Cadiz, one of the country’s oldest towns, built on a rock, combining its Mediterranean influences with its opening onto the tumultuous Atlantic Ocean.

Your exploration will continue in Portugal, in the Algarve region at the country’s southern tip. Bewitching Lagos stands proud like a fortress in hues of ochre and orange, bordered by the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In this town of nature and culture, stroll in the paved small streets of the historic centre whose Moorish and Portuguese influences create a delightful blend.

Your cruise will come to an end in Lisbon, sitting on the Tagus River, distilling its one-of-a-kind charm imbued with rich history.
