Cruise through the Mediterranean to South America and discover the colonial towns, golden beaches and verdant landscapes of Brazil, plus enjoy a two-night stay in its colourful capital, Rio de Janeiro.

Your holiday starts with a one night stay in Milan, famous for its gothic cathedral and grand opera house, before taking the train to Savona on Italy’s Ligurian coast to join your cruise. The Costa Favolosa is a stunning ship that exudes glamour and elegance at every turn and offers a sensational choice of lounges, bars and restaurants.

As you sail across the Mediterranean Sea, you’ll call in at the historic port of Marseilles and the birthplace of Picasso, Malaga. You’ll also visit the thriving city of Casablanca on the Moroccan coast and the picturesque Funchal in Madeira, before calling at Tenerife’s bustling capital, St Cruz de Tenerife.

Then you’ll have a relaxing few days at sea, enjoying the facilities and entertainment on board before beginning your discovery of Brazil. Recife is a coastal city distinguished by its rivers, bridges, islets and peninsulas, while Macieo is modern city set within a beautiful beachfront location. Next you’ll cruise to Salvador de Bahia, a high-energy city with a unique blend of Portuguese and African culture and heritage and Ilheus; known for its colonial buildings and palm-fringed beaches.

Your final port of call is Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s most vibrant cities where you’ll disembark for a two night hotel stay. Full of carnival feeling and packed with sights, exploring the city is made all the easier with the Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer tour we’ve included as part of your package. During this fantastic tour which takes in two of the city’s most iconic sights, you’ll hop aboard a cog train to the top of Corcovado Mountain, through the lush Tijuca rain forest to the foot of the towering Christ the Redeemer statue.
