Day 1 Cannes | Embark

Glittering Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their drafty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes’ high flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since. Every year, the stars flock to celebrate the Cannes Film Festival at the colossal Palais des Festivals.

Day 2 Portofino

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Portofino is an idyllic fishing village on the Italian Riveria coastline. Its pastel-colored houses, luxury boutiques and seafood restaurants surround its Piazzetta, a small cobbled square overlooking the harbor lined with yachts. A short walk takes you up to the Church of St. George, a colorful little chapel built high on the narrow neck of the Portofino headland, with stunning views of the sea. 

Day 3 Propriano

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The coastal town of Propriano is found on the south-west coast of Corsica, about halfway between the major towns of Ajaccio and Bonifacio. The harbor contains a fascinating combination of exclusive yachts and modest fishing boats, and is well worth a visit to get some of the best views of the town. Explore the charming town center, with plenty of luxury shops, cafes, and bars to enjoy.

Day 4 Stintino

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Stintino is a small village on the northwest coast of Sardinia. Despite the influx of tourists to the island, the area has remained peaceful and enjoys a very traditional way of life. The beaches here are considered to be some of the best in Sardinia with powdery white sand overlooking beautiful crystal clear turquoise seas.

Day 5 Calvi

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Napoleon once said that he could recognize his native island blindfolded because of the wonderful perfume of the maquis--and indeed, approaching by sea, it is the first thing you experience about Corsica. The second is its wild and mountainous landscape. Nearby are secluded beaches and the eerie Grottes des Veaux Marins, offering fantastic diving opportunities.

Day 6 Bandol

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bandol is a quiet little seaside resort in a sheltered bay surrounded by hills that protect it from the wind. It has sandy beaches and a yachting harbor, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants. Each morning there is a market in the center of town with plenty to peruse. Explore this lovely little gem of a town, shaded by pine and palm trees and an abundance of mimosa.  

Day 7 St. Tropez

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
It is said that the most spectacular way to approach the exquisite harbor of St. Tropez is by sea. St. Tropez is a people-watcher's paradise, so you will also want to explore its famous beaches, bistros, and bars. This favorite stop will be memorable whether time here is spent strolling through the town or relaxing by the sea.

Day 8 Cannes | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Glittering Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their drafty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes’ high flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since. Every year, the stars flock to celebrate the Cannes Film Festival at the colossal Palais des Festivals.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate.
