Francesco's Mediterranean Voyage is a BBC Television documentary series first aired in 2008. It follows Venetian architect Francesco da Mosto as he follows the historical Venetian trading route from Venice through the Adriatic Sea, Corinth Canal, Aegean Sea and Dardanelles to Istanbul. This route was taken by, among others, his ancestor Alvise da Mosto. Travelling as a member of the crew of the schooner Black Swan, along the way he stops off at the ports that were visited by the earlier traders and were in many cases part of the Venetian Empire. The series was also written by Da Mosto.

Eden broadcasts edited highlights of the episodes as repeats, seriously shortened to fit the same time slot as the BBC but with commercials replacing much of the content. When this happens the original programmes are removed from the BBC iPlayer.
