  • Spend time before your departure to visit the "birthplace of Europe"
  • View a dense labyrinth of pastel colored houses clinging to the Amalfi coast

Sailing southeast to Sardinia then north to Corsica with port visits along the way.

Civitavecchia (Port of Rome), Italy
2,500 years of history are woven into the fabric of modern Rome. You can feel it in the remarkable Pantheon, considered to be the most perfect architectural statement of the ages. Or as you wander side streets that open onto piazzas, fountains, Bernini sculpture, and elegant courtyards. Famous treasures are legion in Rome: the Colosseum, where gladiators fought to the death, the ancient Forum, St. Peter’s Cathedral in the Vatican, with its breathtaking Sistine Chapel, newly restored to its former glory, the Trevi Fountain…the Spanish Steps, where all Rome passes by.

Take time out between sights to do as the Romans do: enjoy a three-hour lunch, shop, people-watch, or savor the best gelati in the world. Life is not lived if you haven't been to Rome!


Golfo Aranci, Sardinia, Italy
Golfo Aranci is the marvelous gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of Sardinia. The town has excellent sea connections with the rest of Italy thanks to its important port. The name Golfo Aranci has two different explanations; the first concerns the distant shipwreck of a ship full of oranges, the second and more credible is linked to the Sardinian term "granci" in other words crabs that can be easily found in this area. In addition to the stunning beaches in the gulf , one mustn't forget the other equally beautiful beaches in the immediate vicinity. The marine reserve of the island of Tavolara is very near, alongside the beautiful Capo Coda Cavallo. The sea, famous for its transparency and beauty offers wonderful water sports opportunities, in particular scuba diving.

Bonifacio, Corsica
Bonifacio's almost land-locked harbor is one of the most dramatic totally protected harbors, a bustling port with excellent seafood restaurants, and a modern marina. The ancient citadel town is perched high atop a seemingly impenetrable granite cliff.

Alghero, Sardinia
Alghero is a charming old town, walled and fortified by the Catalans and the Spanish who occupied this corner of Sardinia for 400 years and left a strong impression, not only on the architecture but also the language, traces of which survive. The bastion walls that protected the town from attack by sea have been rebuilt and restored, and are supported by a handful of impressive defensive towers. Within the walls, narrow paved and cobbled streets lead beneath clothes lines and shuttered windows to attractive little squares that are filled with life in the mornings and early evenings. The harbor immediately outside the walls is busy with fishing and pleasure boats. The paved, landscaped esplanade and area along the Lido make for pleasant strolls.

St. Florent / L'ile Rousse, Corsica
Crowded with yachts flying burgees hailing from the world's most prestigious yacht clubs, the harbour of St. Florent is a regatta of colors. The attraction, of course, is the crystal clear water that surrounds this section of the Corsican coast, making it a magnet for boaters. Take an excursion to the peninsula of Cap Corse, where medieval watchtowers dot the cliff tops every few miles. Or bike across the dunes of Désert des Agriates to the beautiful and isolated Saleccia beach

Portoferraio, Elba
Sailing into Portoferraio, you can see why Napoleon chose Elba for his exile; an island of pink granite, pine forests, and pristine beaches. The contrasts of the Elba countryside – from its typical fishing villages and high mountain passes to its stylish summer resorts on the coast – are enchanting. Elba’s restaurants feature excellent seafood, and small private vineyards produce local Moscato and Aleatico wines.

From his villa in Portoferraio, Napoleon, no longer Emperor of France, looked out over the waiting ships in the harbor and dreamed of returning to glory. Today you can enjoy a local vineyard tour, and near Portoferraio, discover the remains of an ancient Etruscan civilisation.
