Day 2 Porto Santo Stefano

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Porto Santo Stefano is a seaport town located in the municipality of Monte Argentario, in the Province of Grosseto, Tuscany. It is one the two major towns that form the township, along with Porto Ercole located on the opposite side of this unique peninsula. It’s a very picturesque marina with sidewalk boutiques, cafes and restaurants. This is a great start for the Land Adventure traveling to Montalcino for the tasting of fantastic Brunello in one of the most famous Italian wine regions. Guests may want to bike ride to Porto Ercole or for the really energetic to the old convent on top of the mountain which has spectacular views of the coast line as well as Giglio and Gianutri. There’s also a great golf course and a fantastic boutique hotel called Il Pelicano where guests can enjoy a nice atmosphere and lunch. As we are anchored guests will also enjoy water sports from the marina platform (Pending local conditions and approvals).

Day 3 Portofino, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Portofino is a picturesque, half-moon-shaped seaside village with pastel houses lining the shore of the harbor. Discover its incredible shops, restaurants, cafès, and luxury hotels. The shopping here is incredible as are the many art galleries. There are also opportunities for hiking, diving, boating, resort golf, tennis and biking (once you get past the taxi stand) as there are no bikes and cars permitted within the town limits.

Optional Activities: 

Portofino – The Splendido’s Italian Cuisine – Taste of Tradition: Experience the cuisine of the world-famous and uber-exclusive Splendido Hotel. This magnificent landmark overlooks the picturesque harbor of Italy's most renowned resort enclave. Favored by the wealthy and famous, the hotel is known for its superb Italian cuisine and for her unequaled ambience. Have an opportunity to taste regional varieties of oil and learn how each is used in the preparation of delicious Italian dishes. Afterwards, enjoy a delicious luncheon of Italian specialties prepared with olive oil as well as wine, dessert, and coffee before returning to the harbor to enjoy the rest of your day.
Duration: 2.5 hours

Portofino – Hiking to Santa Margherita: This picturesque hiking adventure departs from the tender pier and passes through town by the trendy boutiques and shops that surround the charming piazzetta and the waterfront. Walk by the church before you reach the hiking path: depending on weather and paths conditions, the first half of the journey is mostly uphill, walking towards Cappelletta, San Sebastiano, and Olmi to reach Molini. The path leads the way through Mediterranean flora, with fancy villas, vineyards, and olive groves. Alternatively, you walk towards Paraggi along the breathtaking coastline where the hills and the seaside live harmoniously together, to then hike up towards Acquaviva and Molini, where an old olive oil mill has been renovated, housing now a little museum and a tiny cafè with facilities. Vegetation hugs the medieval dwellings and the cliffs drop off to the crystal-clear sea, making this one of the most fascinating locations of the Riviera. Continue towards S. Anna and Nozarego to finally start the walk down to the main promenade of Santa Margherita Ligure. Santa Margherita's forms, colors, the arrangement of its characteristic houses, its rich villas, and great hotels all seemingly painted around the bay produce something of a magical reflection. Pause for a refreshment at a local cafè and some time to browse the shops before boarding your van for the return drive to Portofino. Or extend your stay in Santa Margherita and then make your own way back to the yacht.
Duration: 3.5 hours

Day 4 Monte Carlo, Monaco

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Principality of Monaco is an independent sovereign state composed of four quarters: Fontvieille (the newest), Monaco-Ville (the oldest), La Condamine, and Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo is widely known for its casino as well as the Monaco Grand Prix. Monte Carlo is one of Europe's leading tourist destinations as it simply has so much to offer. Some of the sights include the Cathédrale Paroisse, Eglise Sainte Dévôte, Jardin Exotique et Grottes de l'Observatoire, Monaco Top Cars Collection, Musée Océanographique, and of course the Palace.

Optional Activities: 

Monte Carlo – Monaco by Ferrari Super Car: Experience the great sensation of driving a real supercar. This exceptional adventure is done along the panoramic roads of the Riviera, exactly where James Bond has been a few times! You are picked up by a luxury mini-van and an English-speaking driver, and transferred along the beautiful Middle Cornice Road to reach the perched village of Eze. Here the Ferrari car is ready and waiting for you. Enjoy being a front seat passenger or pilot during 15 minutes of a real fast car ride. As a co-pilot, a professional driver is in command of the car, or you can be a pilot with a professional trainer beside you. After this exciting experience, enjoy a soft drink while being overwhelmed by the landscape. Have some free time for visiting the nearby perfume factory. Your minivan brings you back to Monaco and drives on the very streets which are turned into the Monaco F1 Grand Prix racing track every year in May.
Duration: 4 hours

Monte Carlo – Eze and Monaco: As you depart the Monaco harbor, the coach joins the Moyenne Corniche, a broad road taking large sweeping curves along the coastline and high cliffs and providing the only access to the amazing village of Eze, a prime example of a Mediterranean hill village. Eze clings like an eagle's nest to a rock spike towering 1401 feet over the sea. On foot enter the 14th-century double gateway with crenellations and a sentry walk leading into the steep narrow streets, sometimes running beneath the carefully restored houses which are now smart boutiques or artists' studios. Streets of this town are closed to traffic and the town can only be explored by foot. Do not miss the magnificent views of the coast from the top. Driving back to Monaco, your coach parks at the foot of the rock of Monaco. From here take escalators and elevators which carry you to the Old City: "The Rock". Up the hill, a guided walking tour through the narrow streets takes you past the Oceanographic Museum, the Cathedral containing the tomb of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III, and the exterior of the Prince's Palace. After a short time at leisure, your motor coach drives along a small part of the Grand Prix Motor Race circuit before returning to the ship.
Duration: 4 hours

Monte Carlo – Walking the Principality: Leaving from one of the world’s most famous ports, proceed to the old city built high on a rocky promontory that offers a panoramic view over the new city and its skyscrapers. This tiny principality has been under the rule of the Grimaldi family for most of the period since 1297. Proceed to the top of the Old City by escalators and elevators. On the hill, a guided walking tour through the narrow streets takes you past the Oceanographic Museum, the Cathedral containing the tomb of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III, and the exterior of the Prince's Palace (no inside visits). If lucky, you may get to see the changing of the guard in front of the Prince's residence. Also enjoy some time to stroll around on your own before returning to the yacht.
Duration: 3 hours

Monte Carlo – Aerial views of Cote d’Azur and Monte Carlo: This truly exciting outing includes a breathtaking view of the French Riviera from the air and offers you the opportunity to fully explore Monte Carlo. After a short transfer from the yacht to the helicopter pad, experience a spectacular 20-minute flight over the glorious Cote d'Azur. While airborne, gain an appreciation of the sheer majesty of the Maritime Alps, the Rock of Monaco, and the Cathedral where Prince Rainier III married American film star, Grace Kelly. Your helicopter then flies at a lower altitude so you can admire the Principality of Monaco at the foot of the mountains, including the casino and beaches. The flight continues over the village of Roquebrune-Cap Martin, Menton, and La Turbie. As you follow the coastline see Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, the hill village of Eze, and the tiny seaport of Villefranche.
Duration: 1 hour

Day 5 Cannes

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Cannes is a well-known destination in the French Riviera that is home to many international festivals celebrating the arts, including Midem, Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, and the global film festival founded in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival. It’s the first European satellite manufacturer, home to the Cannes Mandelieu Space Center, as well as the headquarters for Thales Alenia Space. Originally a small fishing port heavily tied to the Lerins Islands, Cannes is most characterized by luxury, fame, and hosting conferences. Despite becoming a glamorous destination in the Côte d'Azur, the history of Cannes and the Lerins Islands was quite rocky. When sailing to Cannes, be sure to visit La Croisette and stroll along the white sandy beaches on this mile-long promenade where the very essence of this town thrives. SeaDream I typically anchors so we can offer water sports to our valued guests. You may occasionally see the yacht docked alongside when you are chartered from the festival.

Day 6 Cassis, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Cassis is a small port situated east of Marseille in the administrative department of the Bouches-du-Rhone in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region. It is a very popular tourist destination and is famous for its steep cliffs and the sheltered limestone inlets called calanques.
 
Optional Activities:
 
Cassis – Aix En Provence: A short walk from the tender landing stage to the bus parking area (10-minute walk) and then a beautiful drive through bucolic scenery takes you to the charming old town of Aix. Many villages, but few towns, are as well preserved as this elegant, traditional capital of Provence. Stroll with your guide on a walking tour through the narrow cobblestone lanes as you make your way to the celebrated Cours Mirableau Avenue. Flanked with intertwining plane trees, it is the town's nerve center and divides Vieux Aix in two, with the medieval streets to the north and the sophisticated, haughty 18th-century mansions to the south. The Cathedrale Saint Sauveur is another highlight with its remarkable 15th-century triptych by Nicolas Froment. After the guided portion of the tour, enjoy some free time to explore the lovely environs of cafes and boutiques before returning to Cassis.
Duration: 4.5 hours
 
Cassis – Hiltop Village of Castellet & Wine tasting: Departing from Cassis, visit the absolutely charming Castellet, a typical Provencal hilltop village. Perched on a wooded hill above the vineyards, this remakable stronghold was formerly owned by the Lords of les Baux. Entering by two fortified gates, “Le Portail” and "Le Portalet”, start the visit walking around the narrow streets up to the Castle. See the St. Sauveur Church with its proud windows before joining the “Trou de Madame” from where you can enjoy an attractive view inland towards St Baume. Have some time to explore the arts and craft workshops –painting, pottery, hollow-ware and lovely small stores selling soaps and fragrances. Then visit a famous vineyard and taste a local wine at Domaine de Souviou, a very beautiful Provencal bastide, with its adjacent chapel surrounded by 32 hectares of vineyards producing some very fine wine, and 2500 olive trees producing a rare olive oil. The wine tasting includes red, white and rosé wines.
Duration: 4 hours

Day 7 Roses, Costa Brava,

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Roses (or Rosas in Spanish) is a coastal city and has the largest fishing fleet of the Costa Brava. Even with so many fishermen, this town in Girona thrives on tourism. The town is popular for its splendid beaches and loved for its unique location as it is the only beach resort facing west. This allows tourists and locals alike get to enjoy fantastic sunsets across the Gulf of Roses. SeaDream I anchors just of the marina and may offer guests water sports activities.

Day 8 Barcelona, Spain | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Barcelona, a UNESCO city, is the second largest in Spain. It is the 12th most visited city in the world and 4th most visited in Europe. Especially remarkable is the work of architect Antoni Gaudi, which can be seen throughout the city. His best-known work is the immense but still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia, which has been under construction since 1882, and is still financed by private donations. Disembark after breakfast. Transfer into the city or to the airport for your continued independent journeys.

Optional Activities:

Barcelona – Gaudi’s Barcelona – Architectural Revolution: The symbol of Barcelona must surely be the incredible Sagrada Familia Basilica designed by the local revolutionary architect, Antoni Gaudi. Gaudi is probably the most famous modernist architect in the world. This tour visits the interiors of both the Sagrada Familia and the Guell Park, Gaudi's greatest works. Start with a viewing of two of Gaudi's buildings, the Casa Mila and the Casa Batllo, which have both been declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO. Then pay a visit to Guell Park, the dream of the businessman Eusebi Guell and his revolutionary architect, Gaudi. Despite the wild appearance of the park, everything in it was planned: the access, the market, the main square, the drainage, the reveries, the roads and paths, the staircases, the benches, etc. The Sagrada Familia Basilica is probably one of the world's most unique structures. Prepare yourself to be impressed with its sheer scale. Still uncompleted, work began in 1882 under the direction of Francesco de Paula Villar, who intended to give the work a Neo-Gothic style, in fashion at that time. The temple has 3 facades, one for the Birth which was built in 1891, the second is the Passion with the Door of Faith, and the third one (not yet built) evokes the Glory of God. When completed to Gaudi's design, the masterpiece will have 18 towers more than 100 meters high. The group of architects that is now working on the project (which is still a private foundation) dream of finishing the work by 2026, the 100th anniversary of Gaudi's death.

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.
