Port of Call
Elba (Portoferraio), Italy
Leaving from Athens, a magnificent city shock full of ancient culture, we move to the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos, known for its diverse and intense nightlife and sandy beaches. From there we set course to Toarmina, Sicily, where The Godfather still resonates and you find Mount Etna, the largest active Vulcano in Europe. Then off we go to find the Italy many dream about, the Amalfi Coast, where Caesar had his private playpen and confetti-hued towns show off their medieval glory days. Paired with mind-altering blue vistas this will work on your inhibitions like four glasses of vino bianco!
Dipping into the Tyrrhenian Sea is next for a visit to the gloriously open-minded Isle of Capri, where the Blue Grotto is just one of many unbelievably beautiful sights. Then off we drift towards Tuscany for a visit of Portoferraio on the island of Elba, the largest island of the Tuscan Archipelago. Napoleon put his stamp on this gem and so will we! To finalize this special island adventure we will gently pull into the port of Nice at the Côte d'Azur, also called 'Nice la Belle' and for very good reasons. After Paris by far the most popular city of la douce France, with much to explore and a fitting grand finale to a magnificent sexy journey.
Embarkation on the date of Sailing is scheduled to begin at approximately 2:00 pm and debarkation from the Vessel at the conclusion of the Cruise is scheduled to begin at approximately 8:00 am.
