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 Finals)

  • 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: East Corsica Beach | Bastia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
One of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica. The water is crystal clear, calm and warm, but the main attraction of the beach is that it is never crowded.

It's amazing in this day and age to find a Mediterranean city that looks like it stepped right out of the travel diary of a 19th century Grand Tour. Bastia's gracious Italianate buildings were created to house the administrative offices of the capital of Haute Corse.

Day 6: East Corsica Beach | Bonifacio

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bonifacio's almost land-locked harbour is one of the most dramatic, totally protected harbours. 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 7: Porto Cervo

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Porto Cervo in the heart of Costa Smeralda is a luxury destination that plays host to many celebrities and VIPs throughout the peak summer season. There are plenty of fine restaurants and luxury boutiques and the village has been described as utopian with architectural influences from Greece, North Africa, Spain and Italy. All surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery.

Day 8: Civitavecchia | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Disembark after breakfast and continue your independent trip back home. 

We recommend you to explore 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. Whatever’s next for you, we wish you a safe onward journey and look forward to seeing you on your next adventure!

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
