Discover enchanting scenery and charming harbor towns on this exclusive 8-day cruise, sailing from Civitavecchia, Italy to the stunning islands of Sardinia, Corsica, Elba, and back. Visit the beautiful Costa Smeralda, an incredible spot that certainly lives up to its name with its magical waters that sparkle and shimmer like a jewel with tones of green, blue and turquoise, “framed” by snow-white rock faces and beaches. Sailing into Bonifacio is quite simply a spectacular experience – a steep, shimmering white chalk cliff, a small town that appears to be floating magnificently on the plateau, and a fjord-like bay which gives way to an elegant marina. Explore Corsica's natural beauty and take a relaxing stroll at the harbor town of Saint Florent.

Day 1 Civitavecchia, Italy | Embark

Day 2 Golfo Aranci, Sardinia, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the 1960s, it was Prince Aga Khan who discovered the beauty of this wildly romantic landscape with the evocative name of Costa Smeralda. He preserved its natural beauty, saved it from overdevelopment, and transformed it into an idyllic and elegant holiday resort. The sea glows in all shades green from turquoise to emerald and sandy bays nestle picturesquely. Together with idiosyncratic granite formations and rugged rocks, these still form the ravishingly beautiful natural backdrop. The elegant town of Porto Cervo, with numerous megayachts in its luxurious marina, has established itself as a center for the international jet set and embodies the legend of the Costa Smeralda.

Day 3 Bonifacio, Corsica, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The chalk cliffs are visible even from a long way away and fall away steeply into the sea like a wall - around 70 meters (230 foot) high. Hidden behind them is a fjord-like inlet which provides the beautiful entrance into the natural harbor of Bonifacio. The elegant modern lower town is set around the harbor with a promenade that runs the length of the deep harbor bay and leads to the elegant marina. More than 187 stone steps, majestically named the "Staircase of the King of Aragon", lead you up to the medieval upper town which sits lofty and impregnable high up on the top of a steep chalk cliff.

Day 4 Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
A beach edged by dunes not far from the port, beautiful beachside promenades and, on a headland, the old town of Alghero which sits defiantly behind thick fortifications - Alghero is something very special. Many buildings and squares in the charming old town were built when it was ruled by the Catalans and some of the inhabitants still speak a dialect of Catalan today. That's why the town is also lovingly known as "Little Barcelona". Grand palaces, numerous churches and towers, winding lanes, and lively squares with snug bars and restaurants transport you into the Middle Ages with a Catalan-Gothic character.

Day 5 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy this day offshore, relaxing and taking in the smell of the fresh ocean breeze up on deck.

Day 6 St. Florent, Corsica, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 7 Portoferraio, Elba, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Although Elba is only a small Tuscan island, you may be surprised by how diverse it is. Imposing cliffs, white sandy beaches, avenues of cypresses, vineyards and olive groves, traditional villages and elegant beach resorts make the place of Napoleon's exile somewhere you would in fact like to be banished for longer. The beautiful old town of Portoferraio with its narrow streets of steps and medieval fortress is set high up on a rocky headland. In the enchanting town of Porto Azzurro, the palm-lined promenades, charming piazzas, and small beach are at the center of the town's activities.

Day 8 Civitavecchia, Italy | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Arrive back at Civitavecchia, Italy, and disembark after breakfast for your continued independent journeys.
