Day 1 Cannes, France | 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 Fontvieille, Monaco (Historic Grand Prix)

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Monaco is the fabled domain of princes and movie stars. The magnificent Palais du Prince and opulent casinos remind you of an elegant, pre-war era. With more wealth concentrated in one small area than almost any place on earth, this tiny principality retains its gilt-edged allure. Today view the Historic Grand Prix race.

Day 3 Lerici, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
It was in the Villa Magni near Lerici that Percy Bysshe Shelley spent his last happy days before sailing his small boat on its stormy fatal voyage on July 8, 1822. Lord Byron, another Lerici literary resident, once swam across what is now called the “Golfo dei Poeti.” The small fishing villages of San Terenzo, Tellaro, Fiascherino, and Montemarcello are similar to the more famous Cinque Terre.

Day 4 Portoferraio, Elba

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
From his villa in Portoferraio, Napoleon, the exiled Emperor of France, looked out over the waiting ships in the harbor and dreamed of returning to glory. Enjoy a local vineyard tour, and near Portoferraio, discover the remains of an ancient Etruscan civilization.

Day 5 Palombaggia | Bonifacio, Corsica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Palombaggia is the most famous beach in Corsica, and has justifiably been voted one of the Top 10 best beaches in Europe. Backed by mountains and pines, this is a beautiful stretch of powdery golden sand and shallow crystal-clear blue water which deepens gradually. Various water sports facilities are on offer including windsurfing, jet-ski, kayaks, and pedal boats and there are plenty of snack bars nearby.

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 6 Alghero, Sardinia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Alghero is the main resort in the northwest of Sardinia and one of its most beautiful medieval cities. Its bustling historic center is packed with excellent bars and restaurants, making it a great place to hang out. It is also ideally placed for exploring the beaches of nearby Riviera del Corallo. Interestingly a form of medieval Catalan is still spoken even though the Iberians left three centuries ago.

Day 7 Porticcio Beach | Ajaccio, Corsica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The resort of Porticcio is clean and modern and there are several beaches in the town. There is a long sandy stretch called the Plage de la Viva that is lively with enough activities going on that most people are happy to stay put. However if you do feel like venturing away then head south towards Filitosa. This prehistoric site is in a lovely countryside setting and is one of the rare places in the world where prehistoric engraved stones can be seen.

Ajaccio has a justified reputation as a very stylish city. Napoléon Bonaparte was born here in 1769, and as you would expect the city has many sites relating to him, from his childhood home to seafront statues, museums, and street names. Its immediate surroundings are a paradise for hikers, mountain bikers, trekkers and climbers. It provides a whole range of outdoor activities which you can enjoy by yourself or with professionals.

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!
