          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.
