14 September 2021 – Rome to Cannes – Royal Clipper – 4 nights Taster Cruise
Your first sight of Royal Clipper will be a lasting memory, her magnificent structure is a thing of beauty. Large open decks of teak with large brass fittings, three swimming pools and her impressive masts and rigging will excite and impress you. Setting sail across the Mediterranean to one of the best kept secrets in Europe – the next two days will be spent on the enchanting island of Corsica. Bonifacio on the southern tip of the island has a beautiful harbour with views across the Strait to the neighbouring island of Sardinia. Cruising the west coast of the island with views of the endless golden beaches, small coves and pine clad mountains in the distant, you will be enchanted by this beautiful island. Calvi, a sleepy, fishing village in the north of the island has its own unique cuisine and culture. An overnight crossing to the sophistication of Monaco, her Royal Palace and and kitschy guard, fantastic hotels and spectacular views over the harbour to both the Italian and French Rivieras. Arriving in Cannes early, time for a stroll around the old town, the famous Croisette and the dizzy opulence of the marina before our transfer to Nice Airport, 45 minutes away and our flight back to Malaga.
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.
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.
Napoleon once said that he could recognize his native island blindfolded because of the wonderful perfume of the maquis. Approaching by sea, it is the first thing you experience about Corsica. The second is its wild and mountainous landscape. Nearby are secluded beaches and the eerie Grottes des Veaux Marins, offering fantastic diving opportunities.
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.
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.
