Day 1 Marseille, France

Embark the luxurious L'Austral this afternoon.

Day 2 Bonifacio, Corsica-France

Perched precariously like a giant vessel along a rocky limestone promontory, Bonifacio enjoys an exceptional setting in the Corsican landscape, particularly when viewed from the sea. Between limestone and granite, the cliffs form a natural facade which plunges straight down into the crystalline waters below. A fortress sculpted by wind and waves, the “sentinel city” of winding cobblestone streets and tall narrow houses is protected by a wall embellished with square towers, a legacy from its medieval period.

Day 3 Naples, Italy

Naples, another atmosphere different from the other big Italian cities: the atmosphere of the South, full of life, the Mediterranean existence in all its magnificence! Around the narrowed alleys of the center and the arteries where reign a lively circulation, the city preserves a chaotic side by certain aspects which will not leave you indifferent. Take pleasure to discover this new setting, as far as the Neapolitan historic center preserved an excellent heritage of its history.

Day 4 Taormina, Sicily

On the edge of Catania, Taormina (Italy) stands out against the slopes of Mount Tauro in the heart of a picturesque and charming location. The town’s alleyways and gardens tumble down the mountain to the Ionian Sea. Its ancient Greek theatre is the second largest in Sicily, after the theatre at Syracuse, and offers a magnificent panorama with the majestic Mount Etna, its lava flows still smoking, in the background.

Day 5-6 Dubrovnik, Croatia

Known throughout the world as the Pearl of the Adriatic, the walled city of Dubrovnik (Croatia) built on a rock has preserved its cultural heritage. Palaces, monuments and white stone churches are in perfect harmony. Long considered as a rival to Venice, traces of its illustrious past are to be found throughout the city which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Day 7 Split, Croatia

Along the Dalmatian coast, this ancient cosmopolitan city and former imperial residence reveals all: fortified walls, towers, temples, palaces and baths. A museum in itself Split (Croatia) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to Diocletian’s famous Palace. Pharaonic egypt, Ancient Rome, the Renaissance and the present exist side by side in perfect harmony.

Day 8 Venice, Italy

Disembark this morning for your continued journey home.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
