Join us on a cruise to Corsica, an island in the center of the Mediterranean between France and Italy. While legally part of France, its proximity to Italy has lent it a wealth of Italian culture, which is evident once you step foot here. Luxury cruises exploring Corsica generally either come from Rome (Civitavecchia) or Monte Carlo, Monaco with many visiting Sicily & Sardinia. You'll have many options to explore Corsica on foot, bicycle, or even a 4x4 tour. The town of Calvi is our main stop where you can see the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, breathe in the crisp island air, & enjoy panoramic views of the quaint town from the Ville Basse & Quay Landry. A tour of local villages is its own adventure, taking you past old silver mines & through picturesque landscapes as you sample the cuisine and learn the culture.
