Starting at the delightful port of Malaga, this incredible sailing expedition takes you to some of the most important and historic towns of the Balearic Islands and the charming island of Corsica. Admire Palma's enormous Gothic cathedral, a powerful symbol of the religious fervor which gripped all of Spain shortly after the defeat of the Moors. Discover Mahon's heritage, including the invention of mayonnaise and the first distillation of gin from juniper berries. Explore the almost land-locked harbor of Bonifacio, one of the most dramatic, totally protected harbors of the Mediterranean. Come on board and sail to the less popular stops along the Western Mediterranean.

Day 2 At Sea

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 3 Ibiza, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Ibiza is a place where people hang out because, except for the medieval walls, you could almost think it was the Mediterranean's version of Key West. But away from the hustle of town, some lovely beaches await.

Day 4 Palma de Mallorca, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Towering over the harbor, Palma's enormous Gothic cathedral is a powerful symbol of the religious fervor which gripped all of Spain shortly after the defeat of the Moors. Built by Jaumé I, its vast open nave and soaring Gothic columns have been added to over the centuries. Behind the Cathedral, a maze of twisting streets leads to designer boutiques and open-air markets.

Day 5 Mahon, Menorca, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Gracious Georgian buildings climb the steep hills backing the Moll Ponent. Mahon's heritage also includes the invention of mayonnaise and the first distillation of gin from juniper berries.

Day 6 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy this day offshore, relaxing and taking in the smell of the fresh ocean breeze up on deck.

Day 7 Bonifacio, Corsica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bonifacio's almost land-locked harbor is one of the most dramatic, totally protected harbors. It is a bustling port with excellent seafood restaurants and a modern marina. The ancient citadel town is perched high atop a seemingly impenetrable cliff.

Day 8 Civitavecchia (port for Rome), Italy | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
St. Peter's, with its breathtaking Sistine Chapel, newly restored to its former glory; the Spanish Steps, where all Rome passes by; the Colosseum, where gladiators fought to the death, and the Pantheon, considered to be the most perfect architectural statement of the ages. Disembark after breakfast and continue your independent trip back home.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
