Pre Cruise Day 1-2 UK/Barcelona, Spain 
On arrival in Barcelona, a member of the A&K team will meet you and transfer you to your hotel for the next two nights.  There is much to discover during your stay in the Catalonian capital. Stoll along La Rambla, famous for its cafes, street artistes and souvenir stands that line this pedestrianised boulevard. The city’s most striking landmark is Gaudi’s unfinished cathedral, La Sagrada Familia, one of the artist’s many distinctive works spread throughout the city. Take your pick from Barcelona’s array of chic restaurants and stylish bars, tapas joints and cocktail hangouts which mix a mean Caipirinha cocktail and stay open long into the night.
Hotel Espana | Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 Barcelona, Spain (Embarkation)
A final chance for some last-minute exploration before we transfer you to the port to embark Silversea ship Silver Wind.
Silver Wind | Meals: Dinner

Day 4 Palma De Mallorca, Spain
Mallorca is one of the Mediterranean’s holiday mainstays with a mix of lively resorts and atmospheric retreats tucked into mountains that soar to 5,000ft and run along the island’s north-west coast. The skyline of Palma is dominated by its distinctive Gothic cathedral, but the city is a delight to explore with narrow streets, al fresco cafes and attractive boutiques. Away from the capital, the popular beaches contrast with the rugged and spectacular rocky northern coast punctuated with caves, monasteries, medieval towns and village markets.
Silver Wind | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3- 4 Ibiza including San Antonio, Spain
At first glance, this is the party isle of the Mediterranean whose lively hedonistic nightlife is the stuff of legend – and you can experience it yourself on this overnight stay. But there is a quieter and more historic side to this Balearic island, from the family-friendly beaches of Es Cavallet and La Salinas to the peaceful north coast. In addition to the clubs and bars of Ibiza Town is the charming Old Quarter with its 16th-century citadel and Gothic cathedral, plus a labyrinth of stone-paved streets filled with offbeat shops and cafes.
Silver Wind | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 Mahon, Menorca 
The most northerly of the Balearic Islands, Menorca is also among the quietest with its own mellow ambience.  For the best views, go to El Toro whose 1,100ft summit affords sweeping vistas of the entire island. From here, it is easy to spot the huge stone prehistoric monuments scattered across the landscape by the first Neolithic settlers. But Menorca is also known for its beautiful coastline punctuated with tucked-away bays of turquoise water and long beaches of powdery sands. The pretty capital, Mahon, is ideal for exploring with its 18th-century mansions and stone churches.
Silver Wind | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 Alghero, Sardinia 
Regarded as one of Sardinia’s most beautiful and interesting ports, Alghero is known as ‘Barcelonetta’ which translates as Little Barcelona. This reflects the town’s Spanish flavour dating from when it was a Catalan colony. As a result, the buildings, winding streets and whitewashed palazzo of the old town reflect these Spanish roots, while the native language is closer to Catalan than it is Italian. Major sites include the Church of San Francesco with its distinctive Gothic bell tower and Magdalena Fort.
Silver Wind | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 Portoferraio (Elba)
This picturesque Tuscan island is mainly famous as the place where Napoleon spent his first period in exile, while in ancient times it is said that Jason’s Argonauts landed here too. Elba’s terrain owes its lush greenness to a network of underground springs, while its dramatic mountain scenery has also helped to draw visitors over the centuries. The town of Portoferraio holds many clues to its past with forts, a Martello Tower and a thriving old town dotted with cafes, shops and bars.
Silver Wind | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 Livorno, Italy
As a gritty working port town, Livorno tends to be overshadowed by its more glamorous Tuscan neighbours. The central area is reasonably compact and has a scattering of shops and bars, but Livorno is mainly regarded as a gateway to Tuscany where visitors flock to Florence or the town of Pisa and its famous Leaning Tower. Renowned as the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is a feast of art and culture that has changed little over the centuries, while Pisa is a thriving, attractive town that has more to offer than just its famously-crooked bell tower.
Silver Wind | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9 Portofino, Italy
Portofino is the epitome of Italian Riviera chic with its colourful terrace of former fishermen’s houses lining the quay where the jet-set come to moor their mega-yachts. This petite enclave has long been a popular stop for the rich and famous with designer boutiques and chic waterside bars. Climb up to the Church of St George, where the remains of England’s patron saint and famous dragon-slayer are said to be held. It also commands some of the best views of the bay.
Silver Wind | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Post Cruise Day 10 – 13 Monte Carlo, Monaco 
This is the principality that put the G into old-fashioned glamour with its long-held reputation for courting the rich and famous. Admittedly, the pocket-size tax haven has a more modern high-rise skyline today, but the royal Grimaldi family’s Pink Palace brings a sense of the whimsical, while the ornate Monte-Carlo Casino oozes old world sophistication and wealth. The landmark Hôtel de Paris is another nod to the principality’s glittering reputation with its lavish belle époque design.Upon disembarking, we will transfer you to the Hôtel Metropole Monte-Carlo for three nights. The following morning a guide will take you on a tour to discover more of this fascinating enclave.
Hôtel Metropole Monte-Carlo | Meals: Breakfast
