DAY 2 | 24 Sep 2021
Stockholm - Hotel Stay

Stockholm’s passion for food comes from the bountiful ingredients supplied by its surrounding sea and farmland. You’ll discover plenty of restaurants dotted around its colourful streets where you can sample traditional Swedish fare, including herring, salmon and, of course, Swedish meatballs. Desserts often include their beloved lingonberries or cloudberries. However, you’ll also find New-Nordic cuisine and tastes from around the globe.

Take the short trip to the nearby Cies Islands with their white-sand beaches and clear waters that wouldn’t look out of place in the Caribbean.

DAY 20 | 12 Oct 2021
La Valletta

Malta’s pint-sized capital is a confused tangle of honey-coloured streets and 16th-century palaces, each one grander and more beautiful than the last. Discover the Baroque treasures of St. John’s, home to a Caravaggio masterpiece, or the more modern additions of the City Gate and the Opera House. With so much packed into such a small area, it’s no wonder the city was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Genoa

This charismatic city’s array of ornate churches and palaces is as astounding as the revitalised old port area that surrounds them. During your stay, you could visit the baroque piazza and order the Genovese specialties of minestrone and trofie al pesto, or sip a glass of Bianchetta Genovese wine. Visit Europe’s largest aquarium and find the time to check out San Lorenzo Cathedral, Piazza de Ferrari and the Maritime Museum, celebrating the city’s rich nautical past.
