Day 1: Athens (Piraeus), Greece | Embark

Your luxurious super yacht, Emerald Azzurra, awaits you in Athens where you’ll embark on your adventure around the Ionian Sea.

The birthplace of western civilization, the Greek capital is steeped in history. Its magnificent Acropolis towers over the city, while the Parthenon and ancient Agora tell tales of a time when gods and goddesses called Athens home.

Day 2: Transit the Corinth Canal | Itea (Delphi), Greece

Witness the impressive engineering feat of the Corinth Canal, a key navigational route for over 2,000 years, as you sail towards Itea. Surrounded by rolling hills covered in olive trees, this waterfront town is also close to the archaeological site of Delphi.

Day 3: Fiskardo (Cephalonia), Greece

Fiskardo is your gateway to the magical island of Cephalonia. The largest of the Ionian Sea islands, you’ll be struck by the unique biodiversity of its landscape, from to perfect turquoise lagoons to golden beaches, stretching on for miles.

Day 4: Giardini Naxos, Italy

Giardini Naxos is a gorgeous beach resort, with a resplendent horseshoe bay and seafront lined with bars and restaurants.

Day 5: Lipari, Italy

The largest of the Aeolian Islands, Lipari exudes a rustic charm with a collection of colourful buildings lining its harbour and, in Quattrocchi, breathtaking ocean vistas.

Day 6: Capri, Italy

Milky white cliffs topped with vibrant green forests welcome you to the idyllic island of Capri. Lying in the Gulf of Naples, its jaw-dropping natural beauty is complemented by its glitzy marina, lined with fellow luxury yachts.

Day 7: Ponza, Italy

Ponza may not carry the fanfare of its more illustrious neighbours but it’s one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Once a Roman prison island, today you’ll find sleepy surroundings and unspoiled nature.

Day 8: Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Your yacht cruise comes to an end in Civitavecchia, where you’ll disembark Emerald Azzurra and be transferred to the airport for your return flight home.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
