Day 1 Nice , France

Embarkation in Nice (France) in the evening.

Day 2 Calvi, Corsica, France

From the moment you arrive, Calvi’s Genoese Citadel seems to beckon you to the top of its ramparts. A jewel of Balagne, this “citadel city” is impressively beautiful. Stretching from Calvi to L’Ile Rousse, the coastline is renowned for its picturesque villages and their narrow cobbled streets. An opportunity to explore Corsica’s “maquis” and its magnificent unspoiled countryside – still intact!

Day 3 Porto, Corsica, France

Sailing along the Calanques of Piana. Additional port details pending.

Day 4 Bonifacio, Corsica-France

Perched precariously on a high rocky promontory, Bonifacio (Corsica) occupies a very special place in the Corsican landscape, particularly when viewed from the sea. A fortress city atop white limestone and granite cliffs that have been sculpted by wind and waves, Bonifacio’s historic medieval heart of tall, narrow houses and winding cobblestone streets is protected by an impressive citadel wall embellished with square towers: a beautiful sight.

Day 5 Portoferraio, Italy

The island of elba is at the heart of the Tuscan Archipelago and presents a finely chiselled profile sheltering many unspoiled coves. roman churches, Medicean fortresses and memories of Napoleon blend into the picture postcard that is Portoferraio (Italy). It is one of the oldest towns on the island, the Ligurians, Etruscans and Greeks having shaped its history before it became a Roman colony. Here you can follow in the footsteps of Napoleon as you wind your way through the pastel-coloured houses protected by the two Medicean forts.

Day 6 Livorno, Italy

An important commercial port on the Italian Coast for wood, marble and alabaster, Livorno was founded by the Medicis. From here we will venture out to discover the delights of tuscany and its great cities of art. Explore the aristocratic charm of secretive Pisa and its famous leaning tower, or the elegance of Florence, Dante’s homeland where the Renaissance was born.

Day 7 Monaco, Monaco Principality

The city of Princes occupies an enchanting location with a delightful old town that will take you through the history of the distinguished Grimaldi dynasty.

Day 8 Nice (France) Disembarkation

Disembark this morning in Nice, France for your continued journey home.
