The city of Cannes is centred on the old port, with the central part quite compact.

Enjoy Le Mas du Langoustier for either lunch or dinner.

The village boasts a citadel on a headland, watching over its narrow streets and harbour. Remarkably, it also has a cathedral on the edge of the cliff, built 150 years ago. Join the lively scene here on the white sandy beaches, waterside bars, and fresh seafood restaurants.

The terrace of the gastronomic restaurant La Rascasse will offer you an amazing panoramic view of the port.

  • DAY 6L'ile Rousse

Developed by Pascal Paoli in the 1760s as a “gallows to hang Calvi”, the port of L’Île Rousse (Isula Rossa) simply doesn’t convince as a Corsican town; its palm trees, smart shops, neat flower gardens and colossal pink seafront hotel create an atmosphere that has more in common with the French Riviera.

A visit of the picturesque village Monticello is a must for their restaurant A Pasturella. You will discover the traditional Corsican cuisine and some excellent fishes.

  • DAY 7Calvi

Jewel of the Balagne, Calvi will impress with the variety of its beauty.

From its classic stone buildings climbing their way up the rocky hillsides to its imposing Genoese citadel overlooking the picturesque marina, this laid-back town oozes charm and history. Indeed, legend goes that Christopher Columbus was born here, when the town was part of the Genoese empire.
Wander up through the winding cobblestone streets; the views from the top of the hill over the magnificent blue ocean will be worth the hike.

For drinking and dining, opt for world-class haute cuisine at La Table de Bastien at the acclaimed La Villa hotel, perched above the city, or chic cocktails at the popular-since-1928 Chez Tao.

  • DAY 8Scandola Nature Reserve

The Scandola Nature Reserve takes up the promontory dividing the Balagne from the Golfe de Porto, its name derived from the wooden tiles (scandules) that cover many of the island’s mountain houses.

But the area’s roof-like rock formations are only part of its amazing geological repertoire: its stacked slabs, towering pinnacles and gnarled claw-like outcrops were formed by Monte Cinto’s volcanic eruptions 250 million years ago, and subsequent erosion has fashioned shadowy caves, grottoes and gashes in the rock. Scandola’s colours are as remarkable as the shapes, the hues varying from the charcoal grey of granite to the incandescent rusty purple of porphyry. The headland and its surrounding water were declared a nature reserve in 1975 and now support significant colonies of seabirds, dolphins and seals, as well as 450 types of seaweed and some remarkable fish such as the grouper, a species more commonly found in the Caribbean.

We would suggest dinner onboard to enjoy the Chef specialities.

  • DAY 9Girolata

This protected area is considered one of the most spectacular and scenic places on the Corsican coast. Girolata is known as “The garden of Corsica” due to its fertile hills.

The town itself is perched just above the glassy waters of the bay, its renowned Genoese tower and traditional stone houses accessible only by water. Isolated as such, these pale buildings form a virtual island amidst the dramatic green hills and deep sapphire waters, making for one of Corsica’s most dramatic sights.

  • DAY 10Ajaccio

The gulf of Ajaccio is beautiful, and Ajaccio, the capital of the island and birthplace of Napoleon, perches on a large bay.

Ajaccio is a working town of bustling streets, markets, palm trees, traffic, people, fountains, monuments, and rickety buildings. It has a charm and a buzz all of its own. Step ashore for dinner or for a drink and sit back and watch the world go by. The sumptuous cathedral (1582) and Napoleon’s house are some of the town’s must-see attractions.

Enjoy the terrace of the Grand Café Napoleon for afternoon drinks and we will suggest the restaurant of the Palm Beach Hotel for the best dinner in town.

  • DAY 11Bonifacio

Perched atop dramatic white limestone cliffs that plunge down into turquoise waters, this historic town at the southern tip of Corsica has become in recent years a favoured destination of the world’s cognoscenti looking to relax.

While its imposing cliffs are supposed to have once harboured Odysseus – and the race of malevolent giants he encountered – Bonifacio has long since become a laid-back beach town with excellent cuisine and maritime antique shops.

The restaurant of the modern Hotel Genovese is a must in town. You can also try Le voilier situated directly on the quay.

  • DAY 12La Maddalena

La Maddalena is renowned for its beaches, rocky granitic terrain, ancient fortifications, and lush vegetation that add to its sights and smells.

Only three miles long at its widest point, La Maddalena is one of the most exotic tourist destinations in the world. Although the Island’s written history begins with the Roman Empire, there is archaeological evidence to indicate occupation in prehistoric times. Try La Scogliera or La Casitta for dinner or go straight to Porto Cervo to enjoy the nightlife there.

  • DAY 13Porto Cervo

Porto Cervo is often referred to as “Porto Nuovo” and is the main centre in Costa Smeralda, located in the gulf of the same name in northern Sardinia.

The village itself was designed by the famous Architect Luigi Vietti. Porto Cervo holds piazzas, designer shops, the exclusive Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and also offers golf, tennis and great nightlife. This city is a fashionable playground for the jet set so we could suggest many restaurants and nightclubs. Cipriani and the Billionaire are only a few of them.

  • DAY 14Rome

You will arrive in Rome around lunchtime.

Sprawled across seven legendary hills, Rome was one of the great centres of the ancient world. Its beginning is shrouded in legend and its development is full of intrigue and struggle - Rome is the eternal city. After tying up in Porto Touristico di Roma Marina, it is a short jump for the guest to scour the city for the best in Italian shopping on the tree lined boulevards dotted with outdoor cafes and fountains. Trips to the Colosseum, the Trevi fountain, the Sistine Chapel and the Spanish steps will allow you to tick off “Things To Do” on your list. For a treat, book table at restaurant Quinzi e Gabrieli for some of Rome’s best sea food or La Posta Vecchia in Palo for authentic charm.
