Departure Port : Nice
Arrival Port : Nice
Ship : LE PONANT
- Ref : P080819
Discover a PONANT itinerary that takes in the most remarkable sights of the aptly-named “Isle of Beauty”.
Blending elegance, comfort and intimacy, set sail for an 8-day Mediterranean cruise aboard Le Ponant, our majestic three-mast yacht.
Leaving from Nice, you will head for the island of Elbe, in Italy. An opportunity to discover Portoferraio and the unmissable Villa San Martino, Napoleon I's summer residence during the few months of exile he spent there in these parts in 1814.
You will also visit Bonifacio, the jewel of the far south of Corsica. A veritable fortress sculpted by the wind and the spray, the “sentinel city” will reveal its historical centre and its long cobbled streets.
After a port of call at the small coastal city of Cargèse, whose Greek heritage is still very evident, you will make a port of call at Calvi, a city combining charm and beauty. From your ship, you will be able to see the La Revellata lighthouse, before coming ashore to stroll through the streets of the old citadel.
Pristine nature, idyllic beaches, port cities, secret coves and rocky headlands: As Le Ponant sails along its coastline, Corsica will enchant you with the beauty of its contrasting landscapes.
An experienced diving monitor is on board during the cruise. Don't miss the opportunity to explore the underwater world, whether scuba diving or snorkelling.
