Maiden Calls

Coriagliano Calabro, Italy


The white houses of the hilltop town look as if they’ve been piled higgledy-piggledy on top of each other and like they’re tumbling into the sea.

Visitors can climb to the castle to see its hall of mirrors, all framed in gilded stucco and hung with Bohemian crystal chandeliers from a trompe-l’oeil ceiling. And, as if the ship were not an opulent enough experience, they could always visit the nearby ancient city of Sybaris which amassed great wealth thanks to its fertile land and busy port.

The food of the region offers many pleasures; a delicious concoction of cultural flavours, thanks to the people, including the Greeks, Romans, Normans, Arabs, Spanish and French, who made coastal Calabria their home over the centuries. Be warned. This area is the chilli capital of Italy and chillies find their way into many dishes, including even the ice-cream!


Crotone, Italy


Steeped in antiquity, the ancient port of Crotone on the very ball of the foot of Italy was founded around 710 BC. Those who loathed maths at school may find it hard to forgive the fact it was home to Pythagoras (the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides).

Crotone’s unspoiled centro historico, crowned by the castle of Charles V, lies uphill from the Old Port. Its winding alleyways are home to boutiques selling interesting local crafts. Must-sees include Le Castella, Crotone’s other castle built on a small island accessible by foot via a narrow causeway. Begun in the 4th century BC, the philosopher Pliny said that Hannibal constructed its first tower. The Capo Collona archaeological park is a short way along the coast. Its best-preserved and most impressive ruin is the Tavole Palatine, where knights gathered before setting off to the Crusades.

Fancy a bite? Not to be missed is quadraro, the local fish soup; the salty and affumicata ricotta called abbespata, the pecorino Crotonese and, most definitely, a glass (or two) of the full bodied Calabrian wine, Cirò DOC. This is the oldest wine in Europe, drunk by Olympic athletes in classical times.

Tarragona, Spain


Almost everything of interest in Tarragona (and there’s lots of it) lies conveniently within the old city walls at the town’s medieval heart, with its maze of cobbled lanes and cathedral. The main street, Las Ramblas, leads to a belvedere called the Balcón de Europa from which to enjoy spectacular views.

If your customers like their ruins Roman, Tarraco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, will not disappoint, with its beautiful 2nd century seaside amphitheatre. The circus, where chariot races were held, is said to have been the largest in the Roman Empire and is one of the best preserved in Europe.

After all that culture, passengers could take time to tempt their tastebuds with a spot of Catalan cuisine. Nuts, onions, tomatoes, oil and garlic feature heavily (and deliciously). Suggest they look out for salsa romesco, a rich tomato and herb sauce with onion, or tuck into tapas in the Rambla Nova, the main boulevard. Or, if seafood is more their thing, El Serrallo, round the harbour, specialises in the freshest seafood cuisine. They will be delighted to hear Tarragona is also known for its fine wines, especially the sparkling delights of Cava.
