In springtime, as the flowers pepper the landscapes with their bright colours and the sun illuminates the Mediterranean shores with its soft light, PONANT, in partnership with RADIO CLASSIQUE, welcomes its 10th Piano Festival at Sea. Experience an exquisite musical interlude in the Mediterranean during a unique 11-day journey punctuated by performances from virtuoso artists. From classical music to the blues, during nine exceptional evenings, the elite of the piano will follow each other aboard L’Austral, to delight you with the sound of recitals, all of which are invitations to be moved by the riches of the Mediterranean, a link between peoples and a crossroads of civilisations. This cruise has been specially designed for a French-speaking audience and lectures will be given in French only.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. During this cruise, meet a famous puppeteer in his workshop in Syracuse, visit the Meteora monasteries from Volos or, from Kusadasi, one of the Mediterranean’s best preserved ancient Greco-Roman cities, admire the archaeological site of Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

Southern Italy promises suspended moments where the beauty of the shores combines with the beauty of its historical remnants, which remain fascinating. In Syracuse, the Sicilian soul unfolds across the island of Ortygia - the oldest part of the city -, a maze of small streets dotted with churches, palaces, ancient remnants, sheltering a majestic cathedral in its very heart. In Puglia, Gallipoli, meaning “beautiful town” in Greek, reveals its Hellenic origins and offers up its singular atmosphere, where life is good.

In the tranquillity of May, you will discover Greece as you have never seen it. From the mountainous island of Corfu, you will arrive in the small port of Itea from where it is possible to visit the mythical site of Delphi or even the Hosios Loukas monastery, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. After crossing the Corinth Canal, you will be welcomed by Athens and its famous acropolis, and the remains of the Temple of Poseidon on Cape Sounion, for an unforgettable port of call. From Volos, Greece will never cease to surprise you: in Thessaly, the formation known as the Meteora hosts Eastern Orthodox monasteries that rub shoulders with the sky and are at one with the rock. 

Kusadasi opens the gateway to Turkey and its treasures. The Ephesus archaeological site will tell you the great history of the Mediterranean, through this ancient city, among the oldest in the Magna Graecia of Asia Minor. From Alanya, you will explore two other majestic ancient sites, Perga and Aspendos, before arriving in Antalya, the end of your cruise.
