Valletta - Split - Trieste - Rovinj - Dubrovnik - Valletta

Day 01: Valletta, Malta

Mosta and Medina (the silent city) will vie for your attention if you want to go wandering.

Day 02: Day at Sea

Air-conditioned, mirrored, inside cabins have two lower beds that are convertible to a queen-size bed with wardrobe and drawer space. The bathroom has a shower and WC plus a hairdryer. There is a vanity/writing desk, and a TV for your enjoyment, plus a radio, telephone, safe and tea and coffee making facilities.

Day 03: Split, Croatia

Face the other way across Split's waterfront and you will see Diocletian's Palace, one of the best-preserved Roman palaces in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The pedestrianised centre of Split is easy to walk around. Wander around its huddle of alleys and piazzas and then, for a great view, climb the exposed steps to the top of the 200ft-high cathedral bell tower. Sip a drink at one of the many cafes along the seafront Riva or pop into a Konoba (wine cellar) to sample the excellent locally produced reds and whites. Culinary specialities include smoke and wind dried ham, stewed beef with noodles and delicious lamb dishes. Just three miles from Split are the ruins of ancient Salona, once capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia.

Day 04: Trieste, Italy

Peculiarly, the Italian city of Trieste is entirely surrounded by Slovenia. This physical isolation is underlined by cultural departures from the motherland too. With historic connections to Austria's Hapsburgs, the city also has German, Jewish, Slavic and Greek influences. This melting pot makes for a fascinating visit. You'll find this mingled history written into the walls of its ancient buildings. Well worth a visit is Castello Miramare - a 19th century castle hewn from white Istrian stone, overlooking the blue waters of the Adriatic. Dominating the city is the fortress, Castello di San Giusto, where you can enjoy picturesque views from the adjacent memorial garden. Below the castle walls is the 14th century Cattedrale di San Giusto where the remains of San Giusto (St Justus or Just) are held. If you're seeking a more laid back space to sip coffee and crunch on biscotti, then the Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia, at the waterfront, is ideal. The architecture will keep you occupied as you watch the world go by, or why not toss a coin into the quaint fountain nearby? The unique atmosphere of Trieste has a special kind of appeal. With the Slovenian border just a few miles away, it's no surprise that the Slovenian language is often heard.


Day 05: Rovinj, Croatia

Rovinj, a picturesque Croatian town and known as the Blue Pearl of the Adriatic, lies on the west coast of the Istrian peninsula, with the 14 islands of the Rovinj archipelago just off the mainland. The old town lies within an egg-shaped peninsula with its pastel coloured houses stretching down to the shoreline. Romantic and mysterious, the historical centre is crammed with strong Venetian influences - even the town clock bears the Venetian lion. A web of steep cobbled streets and piazzas, filled with boutiques and cafs, leads to the Baroque, hilltop church of St Euphemia. Here the 61-metre Venetian bell tower (a copy of the one next to St Mark's Basilica in Venice) dominates the skyline. And the views from the top are spectacular. Just minutes from town you'll find gorgeous pine-fringed beaches, the Punta Corrente Forest Park, a Roman amphitheatre and the subterranean Baredine Cave.

Day 06: Dubrovnik, Croatia

The spectacular Old Town - with its pretty harbour, towering ramparts, creamy stone pavements and red-roofed buildings - is crammed with architectural wonders like Onofrio's Fountain - constructed in the 1430s - and the 14th century Franciscan Monastery, home to a wonderful statue of the Pita carved in 1498, and the world's oldest pharmacy (est. 1391). TV fans will be in their element, as Dubrovnik is also the home of King's Landing from the hit series Game Of Thrones. Visit the magnificently Gothic Sponza Palace and the 18th century Baroque Church of St Blaise, Dubrovnik's patron saint. And, when you have had your fill of sightseeing, you will find pretty restaurants and cafes tucked away on Dubrovnik's narrow side streets - worth exploring as they also contain offbeat shops and art galleries. Lacework, oil paintings and ceramics are good buys but take plenty of cash with you, as some shops do not accept credit cards.

Day 07: Day at Sea

Dining takes centre stage on board Azura Enjoy three main restaurants offering a choice of Club Dining - the same table at the same time each evening - or Freedom Dining with no fixed seating or dining times. There’s also the opportunity to visit the Select Dining venues of Sindhu, the first restaurant at sea from master of spices Atul Kochhar; Epicurean, where a sense of occasion is always on the menu; and The Glass House, a wine bar and restaurant created in partnership with award-winning wine guru Olly Smith.

Day 08: Valletta, Malta

Mosta and Medina (the silent city) will vie for your attention if you want to go wandering.
