Travelroute
Day 1

Lisbon, Portugal

Portugal’s capital on the Atlantic Ocean is comprised of several key districts built on seven hills. A good place to begin is the historic Alfama district, a maze of medieval streets and alleyways leading to a hilltop on which you will find the Castelo de São Jorge. One of Lisbon’s most popular attractions, the castle provides sweeping views over the city. Descend to the riverfront Baixa district to enjoy its shopping, restaurants and neoclassical architecture. The Bélem district is home to a pair of UNESCO World Heritage sites: Bélem Tower, celebrating the Age of Discovery, and Jerónimos Monastery, a prime example of ornate Manueline architecture. If time permits, the charming villages of Sintra and Cascais are only a short distance away, and many choose to make the pilgrimage from Lisbon to Fátima, where apparitions of the Virgin Mary appeared in 1917.

Day 2

Sailing Time

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board. Enjoy a workout with a view at the gym, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, watch the sky transform at sunset from The Observation Lounge, or find an intimate alcove in The Living Room and lose yourself in a favorite book.

Day 3

Gibraltar, Gibraltar

This British Overseas Territory on Spain’s southern coast is dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, fondly called The Rock. For spectacular views, take a six-minute cable car ride to the top, where you can see two continents, two bodies of water and three countries. A short walk brings you to the Gibraltar Nature Reserve and the cheeky Barbary macaques, the famous monkeys that roam freely here. Other highlights include the illuminated stalagmites of St. Michael’s Cave and the Great Siege Tunnels, a maze of defensive fortifications carved into the rock in the 18th century and extended to an underground city during World War II, housing the garrison, canons, artillery and food. Another cave adventure is the Gorham’s Cave Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site where rock carvings provide evidence of Neanderthal man dating back 120,000 years.

Day 4

Málaga, Spain

Tall hotels rise up from the golden beaches in Málaga, the historic enclave on the Costa del Sol. While the Mediterranean bathes its coastline, Málaga's mountains back the city to form a cocoon that ensures mild weather. Málaga is among the world's oldest cities, founded 2,800 years ago and settled by Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Visigoths and Christians. Looming over the skyline are the citadels Alcazaba and Castle of Gibralfaro, remnants of Moorish rule. Málaga was revitalized in recent years, now featuring some 30 museums and an edgy urban art community. Picasso's hometown naturally has a museum dedicated to him, as well as the Centre Pompidou and Museo Carmen Thyssen. Málaga also boasts a chic cuisine scene – but a simple bowl of traditional porra antequerana soup is never hard to find. A must-see in the hills surrounding Málaga are the pueblos blancos, white villages bursting with Andalusian charm.

Day 5

Sailing Time

Day 6

Valencia, Spain

The distinctive cityscape of Valencia harmoniously blends centuries of architecture. The first stone of Valencia Cathedral was laid in 1262, and one of the chapels holds a chalice purported to be the true Holy Grail. Meanwhile, the Plaza del Mercado provides a delightful contrast between the art nouveau Mercado Central and the Gothic architecture of Lonja de la Seda, a former silk exchange and UNESCO World Heritage site. Moving into the 21st century, the City of Arts and Sciences was designed by renowned Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava and opened in 2005. The soaring arches and gleaming glass of the modern structures host the largest aquarium in Europe, the tallest opera house in the world and other museums. Additional treasures can be found north of town in the Lladró Porcelain Museum. Valencia also has a lovely beachfront promenade, a great place to sample paella in the city where the dish was invented.

Day 7

Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Spain

One of Europe's favorite playgrounds, Ibiza boasts more than 100 miles of coastline frosted with exquisite beaches. It's a hub of sun worship, white sand, beach bars and clubs that buzz all night. And there's history too. The fortified Old Town, known as Dalt Vila, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a spectacular example of Renaissance military architecture. Carrer del Calvari leads to Portal Nou, the entrance through the old city walls, and a walk up the hill reveals panoramic views of the city. Interestingly, the contemporary art museum is found here – housed in a 17th-century building – as is the impressive Ibiza Cathedral. Another fascinating site, the necropolis of Puig des Molins features ancient burial chambers and treasures found within them, including painted ostrich eggs. The island is home to multiple vineyards producing high-quality wines, and shopping ranges from the famous hippy markets to luxury boutiques.

Day 8

Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Spain

Day 9

Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

Disembarkation.
The capital of the Balearic Islands, beautiful Palma is famous for La Seu, the massive Cathedral of Santa Maria overlooking the bay. The adjacent Alumdaina Palace has been a royal residence since the 14th century, and the Gothic-style Bellver Castle houses the city's history museum. The Juan March Foundation Museum boasts a permanent collection of 70 works by the most important Spanish vanguard artists of the 20th century. Beachgoers will find abundant options offering water sports, sailing, horseback riding and more, and shoppers should check out Avenue Jaime III and the tree-lined Passeig del Born. The rest of Mallorca holds plenty of appeal as well, from the Carthusian monastery where George Sand and Frédéric Chopin once stayed to the remarkable stalactites of the underground lake known as Cuevas del Drach.
Please note; fares are per person based on double occupancy. Taxes, fees and port expenses of €233 per passenger are included.

Overview

Fare from € 5.490
<read more>
Travelroute
Day 1

Valletta, Malta

A UNESCO World Heritage site, Valletta is a diminutive city packed with history. Sailing into the harbor is an experience in itself, as the dome and spire of competing churches rise above the cluster of limestone façades and formidable ramparts. Built by the Knights of St. John in the 16th century, Valletta is architecturally Baroque in character, with Mannerist, neoclassical and modern elements as well. It’s easy to navigate the city on foot and take in sights such as the City Gate, National Museum of Archaeology, Grand Master’s Palace and St. John's Co-Cathedral, which houses the famous Caravaggio painting The Beheading of St. John. Gardens are plenty, including the Upper Barrakka, which offer panoramic views. In the Maltese countryside, megalithic temples reveal the island’s prehistoric past, and the surrounding waters are also worth exploring, particularly the gorgeous sea caverns of the Blue Grotto.

Day 2

Day 3

Monemvasia, Greece

Historic and romantic, the medieval town of Monemvasia is situated on the island nicknamed the “Gibraltar of the East,” an enormous hunk of rock rising from the sea and creating a natural fortress for its inhabitants. Only a single causeway links Monemvasia with the mainland, and visitors must leave cars behind to explore the walled town carved into the cliffside. Ancient stone houses with terracotta rooftops look out over the crystal blue waters and mountains beyond. There are six museums and many churches, including Agia Sophia, among the oldest Byzantine churches in Greece. Ancient ruins lie nearby on the mainland, including the towns of Epidaurus Limera and Kyphanta and the fortress of Zarakas. The area around Monemvasia is rich with flora and fauna, ideal for geological explorations, rock climbing, hiking and water sports, and a wide variety of beaches ring the promontory.

Day 4

Santorini, Greece

Make sure to be on deck to witness sailing into one of the Aegean’s most spectacular sights: the volcanic caldera that is Santorini’s bay. Rising from the sea, the earth transforms into a wall of stone that looms in striating hues of ochres, grays and pinks. Dotted with the island’s iconic blue-domed churches, the whitewashed village of Fira hovers in the cliffs, bustling with shops, tavernas and a fine museum while clinging to the caldera’s rim. After gazing down at the stunning view from Fira, you can hike the Caldera Trail to Oia – a different and equally breath taking perspective of the exquisite bay awaits you at every turn. Or sample other island delights – the wineries, the black sand beaches or the Minoan ruins of Akrotiri, which Plato believed was the lost city of Atlantis. Then relax in a cliffside taverna with a local assyrtiko wine and watch an amazing sunset.

Day 5

Mykonos, Greece

Bronze bodies bask in the sun on golden beaches, blue-domed churches dot the island, and picturesque windmills paddle the horizon. This is Mykonos, one of the most charming and fashionable of the Greek isles. Chora, its capital, is a cubist jumble of whitewashed houses and a maze of alleyways built long ago to foil pirates. Get lost in these narrow, twisting lanes filled with exclusive boutiques, art galleries and world-class restaurants. Take a 4x4 to explore the hidden corners of this stunning Cycladic island, or take a short boat trip to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Delos, a sacred islet of ancient ruins and the mythological birthplace of the twins Apollo and Artemis.

Day 6

Nafplion, Greece

The Venetians left their mark in Nafplion. Perched on a cliff jutting into the sea, their impregnable fortress is an elegant display of Venetian might. Walk through the Old Town with its handsome neoclassical buildings and balconies dripping with bougainvillea. One of the most beautiful towns in Greece, Nafplion is also one of the most historic; its cultural roots date back to both the Argonautic expedition and the Trojan War. From here you can drive across the Peloponnese where tales from Homer’s Iliad come alive. Visit the immense beehive tomb of Agamemnon in the Bronze Age citadel of Mycenae, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Wonder at the acoustic marvel of the ancient theater in Epidaurus, another UNESCO World Heritage site, built in the 4th century BC and still in use today.

Day 7

Nafplion, Greece

Day 8

Athens (Piraeus), Greece

Disembarkation.
Athens is the cradle of the Western democratic tradition, home to a civilization as radiant as any before or since. Feel the pulse of history as you climb to the hilltop Acropolis, home to some of the city’s most renowned ancient sites. Gaze in amazement at the massive columns of the Parthenon, Pericles' greatest monument. Admire the little Temple of Nike and the fantastic carvings of the caryatids that support a porch of the Erechtheion. At the bottom of the hill, the Acropolis Museum includes original statues of the maidens and numerous other artefacts unearthed here. Equally outstanding is the National Archaeological Museum, one of the largest in the world. In the Agora, you can walk in the footsteps of Plato and Aristotle, carry on an imaginary dialogue with Socrates and discover where Hippocrates healed and Pericles ruled. Then for lighter fare, savour the lively tavernas and twisting lanes of the Plaka neighbourhood.
Please note; fares are per person based on double occupancy. Taxes, fees and port expenses of €90 per passenger are included.

Overview

Exclusive yachting – Exclusive yachting – Valletta to Athens (Piraeus)

The iconic sights and cosmopolitan chic of the Cyclades, the idyllic beauty of an Ionian island, and the stunning architectural heritage of an ancient Peloponnesian port town make this sailing an exceptionally scenic showcase of romantic Greece.

Day 3

Corfu, Greece

History oozes from every corner of Corfu, an island prize coveted by a succession of maritime powers since the Peloponnesian War in the 4th century BC. But who can blame them? This Ionian idyll is the greenest of all Greek islands, swathed in orange and olive groves and endless beaches bathed by a cerulean sea. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Old Town of Corfu includes the magnificent Esplanade, where you can watch a game of cricket from a sidewalk café. There are also beautiful palaces, castles and archaeological sites to explore. Empress Elizabeth of Austria built the gorgeous Achillion Palace for her summer home, while the former Greek royal family used to vacation at Mon Repos. And don’t miss the lovely beaches of Paleokastritsa, where Odysseus was washed ashore.

Day 4

Kotor, Montenegro

Simply arriving in Kotor is an unforgettable experience. One of the world’s most breathtaking waterways, the fjord-like Bay of Kotor follows a winding path through the forested mountains that rise on all sides of the sparkling sea. Nestled along the most inland cove are the coral-tiled roofs of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Fortified during Venetian rule, medieval ramparts surround the Old Town, where visitors will find historic landmarks such as the 12th-century Cathedral of St. Tryphon and the Maritime Museum. The physically fit should climb the 1,350 steps to clifftop St. John’s Fortress for gorgeous views of the town and the bay. A more leisurely option would be a boat tour to the unique Our Lady of the Rocks Church, situated on a tiny manmade islet, or a drive to the charming medieval town of Budva.

Day 5

Kotor, Montenegro - Dubrovnik, Croatia

It was George Bernard Shaw who famously described Dubrovnik as “the pearl of the Adriatic” and recommended that “those who seek paradise on Earth should come … and see Dubrovnik.” Coral-tiled roofs and a backdrop of green hills contrast sharply with the spectacular blue of the Adriatic Sea. Thick medieval walls wrap around beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Dubrovnik is truly amazing, and it’s no wonder this UNESCO World Heritage site played a central role in TV’s popular Game of Thrones. Be sure to take a walk along the city walls. No matter how many times you’ve been to Dubrovnik, you can’t help being inspired by the ancient ramparts that survived sieges by countless invaders for centuries and still stand proudly today.

Day 7

Venice, Italy

One of the most enchanting cities in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Venice rises from a lagoon on more than a hundred tiny islands linked by the iconic network of canals. A romantic gondola ride provides the perfect introduction to the city, gliding underneath the Ponte di Rialto – the oldest and most famous of Venice’s hundreds of bridges – and past the ornate palaces lining the Grand Canal. The power and wealth of the Venetian empire are on display at Piazza San Marco, the city’s most splendid square, where stands the grand St. Mark’s Basilica and the Gothic-style Doge’s Palace. Priceless art collections vie for attention, including the Italian masters in the Gallerie dell’Accademia and the modern works of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Some of the world’s most talented glassblowers showcase their wares on the island of Murano, while the colorful shops of Burano are home to artisan lace makers.

Day 3

Koper, Slovenia

Koper is Slovenia’s port city on the Adriatic, but it is its history as part of the Venetian Republic that appeals to the visitor. The Old Town is an easy walk from the port, and Tito Square is a good place to start. Visit the Venetian-influenced Praetorian Palace dating back to the 15th century and Da Ponte Fountain, a replica of Venice's famed Rialto Bridge. Rebuilt many times, the 12th-century Cathedral of the Assumption features a tall campanile with sweeping bay views. Just a short distance from Koper is the coastal city of Piran, where more Venetian style buildings and a walk along the coast are the attractions.

Day 4

Hvar, Croatia

Super yachts crowd the harbour and waterside bars hum with wealthy vacationers and young partiers in this posh island getaway with a laid-back Mediterranean vibe. The island of Hvar is famous for its lavender fields, vineyards, year-round sunshine and nonstop nightlife, but it’s also rich in culture and history. Near the harbour stands a Benedictine convent where nuns fashion lace as part of a 150-year-old tradition recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage. UNESCO has also recognized Stari Grad Plain, a cultural landscape that has remained practically unchanged since it was first colonized by Ionian Greeks in the 4th century BC. And let us not forget the island’s charming capital, one of the best-preserved historic towns on the Adriatic. It’s worth the climb to the ancient fortress to take in the views.

Day 8

Taormina (Naxos), Italy

Nestled on the beautiful Sicilian coast, Taormina is most famous for the 3rd-century Teatro Antico di Taormina, the world's most dramatically situated Greek theater. Nearby cliffs drop to the sea forming coves with sandy beaches. The city center is filled with 15th-century stone palaces and churches, and pedestrian-only Corso Umberto is the spot for people watching, shopping, fine dining or a gelato. Strung along the bay below Taormina is Giardini Naxos, a picturesque seaside resort on the site of the most ancient Greek colony in Sicily. Of course, many visitors make the trek inland to magnificent Mount Etna, a UNESCO World Heritage site, for a hike through the foothills or a walking tour of the upper crater. On the north slope is the often overlooked but incredibly scenic waterfalls and rapids of Alcantara Gorge, a great place for hiking or cooling off with Sicilian locals.

Day 10

Sorrento, Italy

This port on Italy’s southern coast overlooking the Bay of Naples is a popular starting place to see all of the pretty towns along the famous Amalfi Coast, but don’t miss the charms of Sorrento itself. The town is perched on cliffs high above the marinas and port below. Visit the 8th-century Cloisters of San Francesco and the Sorrento Cathedral, started in the 15th century with many additions made over time. Relax at a café in Piazza Tasso, the hub of the town. From Sorrento it is also possible to take an excursion to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Pompeii and the mighty volcano Vesuvius.

Day 11

Sorrento, Italy

Day 12

Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

Disembarkation.
An amazing amalgam of sights and sounds, Rome is a kinetic tapestry stimulating every sense. The ring of church bells and honks of early morning traffic echo off the weathered stone of ancient buildings. Office workers dash past fruit stands and sidewalk cafés in the shadows of elegant palace façades. Meanwhile, tourists make their way from piazza to piazza, monument to monument, church to church: the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica. From the sculptures of the ancients to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes to the Baroque fountains of Bernini, Rome’s art and architecture are unsurpassed. Here the day-to-day life of a busy European metropolis intermingles with many of the most recognizable monuments ever created. Rome belongs not only to Italy, but to the world.
Please note; fares are per person based on double occupancy. Taxes, fees and port expenses of €184 per passenger are included.

The Mediterranean, Exclusive yachting – Rome (Civitavecchia) to Monte Carlo
Fare from € 6.833
<read more>
Travelroute
Day 1

Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

An amazing amalgam of sights and sounds, Rome is a kinetic tapestry stimulating every sense. The ring of church bells and honks of early morning traffic echo off the weathered stone of ancient buildings. Office workers dash past fruit stands and sidewalk cafés in the shadows of elegant palace façades. Meanwhile, tourists make their way from piazza to piazza, monument to monument, church to church: the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica. From the sculptures of the ancients to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes to the Baroque fountains of Bernini, Rome’s art and architecture are unsurpassed. Here the day-to-day life of a busy European metropolis intermingles with many of the most recognizable monuments ever created. Rome belongs not only to Italy, but to the world.

Day 2

Porto-Vecchio, Corsica, France

The large island of Corsica rests enticingly between the French Riviera, Sardinia and Tuscany. This French playground has it all – hilltop villages, unspoiled beaches, rugged mountain scenery, dense forests, a dramatic coastline and thousands of years of history. Situated on the island’s western coast, Porto-Vecchio is Corsica’s St. Tropez, a city of luxury yachts, fashion shoots, nightclubs and some of Corsica’s most beautiful beaches. For an entirely different experience, travel inland to the mountainous region with its gorges, rivers and waterfalls. Closer to shore, there’s world-class diving, every imaginable water sport, and a historic district full of cafés and boutiques, complete with a 16th-century citadel perched on high.

Day 3

Porto-Vecchio, Corsica, France

Day 4

Calvi, Corsica, France

With growing popularity as a beach resort, this small town on the northwest coast of Corsica is a delight to visit. Walk along the lively beachside promenade where you’ll find restaurants, bars and shops. A 15th-century citadel built by the Genoese takes its place of prominence on the hilltop above the town, affording spectacular views of the harbour below. Visit Église Sainte-Marie, a charming pink church, and Notre Dame de la Serra, a 19th-century chapel. You’ll see a plaque that commemorates the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, but the claim is controversial. For natural wonders, take a boat tour of the beautiful rock formations of the Scandola Nature Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Day 5

Calvi, Corsica, France

Day 6

Cannes, France

Famous worldwide for its annual Cannes Film Festival, this French Riviera resort town attracts the rich and famous to its beaches and sophisticated scene. The Promenade de la Croisette is the place to see and be seen. This broad pedestrian walkway along the beach is lined with designer boutiques, grand hotels and fancy restaurants. So famous is La Croisette, that many miss the other side of Cannes. Tucked up in the hills is Le Suquet, the historic quarter. Wander along its cobblestone streets and enjoy views of the city below. Not far from Cannes are the casinos of Monte Carlo and the birthplace of the French perfume industry at Grasse.

Day 7

Marseilles, France

Founded in 600 BC, Marseilles is the oldest city in France and its third largest metropolitan area. A must-see is the 19th-century basilica, Notre Dame de la Garde, which sits at the highest point in the city. Also worth a visit is the water fountain at Palais Longchamp, built under the reign of Napoleon III. Marseilles is considered the birthplace of bouillabaisse, so make time to stop for a bowl of this famous seafood stew in the Old Port. You might also wish to drive through the Provençal countryside to Aix-en-Provence, a charming town best known as the home of impressionist painter Paul Cézanne.

Day 8

Marseilles, France

Day 9

Marseilles to Cassis, France

Located east of Marseille on the southern coast of France, Cassis is a quaint Mediterranean fishing village that has become a popular destination thanks to its lovely beaches and the nearby Calanques, narrow coastal inlets framed by scenic limestone cliffs. Hikers can take the well-marked trails to Cap Canaille, a rocky headland with panoramic sea views. In town visitors will find narrow streets bordered by the colourful homes of local fishermen. Numerous restaurants and sidewalk cafés offer the wonderfully fresh catch of the day. The second most important industry here is wine production, so complement your lunch with a delicious glass of local rosé.

Day 10

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Disembarkation.
Perhaps no port of call is better designed to welcome a luxury yacht than Monte Carlo, where some of the most splendid vessels in the world make their home. At this playground for the rich and famous, the only thing more spectacular than the yachts filling the harbour are the luxury cars driving the winding streets that host the annual Grand Prix. Verdant mountains ascend abruptly behind the lavish high-rises lining the bay, and perched on the cliff is the Palace of the Prince, where the Changing of the Guard attracts onlookers each morning at 11:55. The nearby Cathedral of Monaco holds the tomb of beloved Princess Grace and other royalty. Prince Albert I founded the city’s remarkable oceanographic museum, once curated by Jacques Cousteau, and Prince Charles III established the elaborate Monte Carlo Casino, where high rollers try their luck and James Bond famously sips his martinis.
Please note; fares are per person based on double occupancy. Taxes, fees and port expenses of €133 per passenger are included.

Day 2

Antibes, France

It’s not surprising that Graham Greene, Max Ernst and Pablo Picasso loved Antibes. What better place for creative inspiration than this spectacular setting on the Côte d’Azur? Half of the world’s biggest yachts anchor for at least part of the year at “Billionaires’ Quay,” where the sound of summer is the clink of champagne flutes. But celebrity sighting isn't the only draw. The Grimaldi Castle is the home of the famous Picasso Museum, which includes many works donated by the artist himself, including his famous La Joie de Vivre. For something different, check out the Absinthe Museum, where you can learn about the history of this heady elixir. There are historic mansions too, such as Vila Eilenroc from La Belle Époque, and Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc, a throwback to the F. Scott Fitzgerald era with a guest list out of a Hollywood movie.

Day 3

St. Tropez, France

A jetsetter haven, St. Tropez is best known for its designer shopping, drink-and-dance-‘til-dawn nightlife, and ritzy beach clubs like Le Club 55 and Nikki Beach. After all, this is where French screen goddess Brigitte Bardot popularized the bikini in the 1950s, and to this day Bardot makes her home here. But another side of this once humble fishing village can be found in the hills far above the beachfront. Walk the narrow cobblestone streets and visit the 17th-century citadel for stunning views of the port.

Day 4

St. Tropez, France

Day 5

Sailing Time

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board. Enjoy a workout with a view at the gym, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, watch the sky transform at sunset from The Observation Lounge, or find an intimate alcove in The Living Room and lose yourself in a favourite book.

Day 6

Sète, France

Only small ships and yachts can access the harbour of Sète, which is one reason this enchanting French port has retained its many charms. The birthplace of numerous artists, including poet Paul Valéry and singer-songwriter Georges Brassens, Sète has a rich artistic heritage and its museums pay tribute. Colourfully painted façades line the town’s canals, which include the north eastern entrance to the Canal du Midi, a UNESCO World Heritage site linking the Mediterranean and Atlantic through southern France. Several other UNESCO sites nearby compete for attention. To the east are the Roman monuments of Arles, a town that famously inspired Van Gogh, and to the west lie the massive, painstakingly restored fortifications, towers and castle of Carcassonne. Renowned for both its historic quarter and the modern Antigone district designed by architect Ricardo Bofill, the city of Montpellier also merits a drive up the coast.

Day 7

Roses, Spain

With it's tranquil blue waters, 28 miles of beaches and some nine miles of coves, the Bay of Roses has been ranked one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Tempted by this harbour, the Greeks came in the 5th century BC to set up a commercial village. Various settlement remains can still be seen, including the monastery of Santa Maria. Other top sights include the 16th-century Castell de la Trinitat and the Dolmen de la Creu d’en Cobertella, the largest megalithic monument in Catalonia. Roses stands apart from other Costa Brava ports with its western-facing beaches that provide stunning sunsets. Restaurants put their own spin on suquet de peix, a Catalan fish stew made with the day's catch and potatoes, which pairs perfectly with a regional Empordà wine. Despite the delights of Roses, art lovers will be drawn to the nearby Salvador Dalí museums in Port Lligat and Figueres.

Day 8

Barcelona, Spain

Disembarkation.
Barcelona is a true global city of breathtaking architecture, countless world-class museums, bustling markets, colorful parks and high-end fashion. This town is big but perfectly discoverable on foot. Imposing Montjuïc Castle is a good starting point for a stunning panorama of the city, and the renowned Joan Miró museum and Catalonian national art museum are also in the area. One might fill an entire day strolling amidst the 12th- and 13th-century architecture of the Gothic Quarter and then checking out the extensive collection of the Museu Picasso. But Barcelona may be most renowned for the unmistakable imprint made on the city by architect Antoní Gaudi, from the spectacular unfinished church of La Sagrada Família to the whimsical Park Güell. More of his work can be found along tree-lined La Rambla, one of the world’s most famous promenades and the perfect place to experience the striking architecture, designer shopping and delicious tapas of the city.
Please note; fares are per person based on double occupancy. Taxes, fees and port expenses of €159 per passenger are included.

Overview

Exclusive yachting –  Monte Carlo to Barcelona

Set sail along the Cote d’Azur to Barcelona and experience the rugged beauty and seaside chic of the most exclusive towns on France’s southern coast. This scenic journey also features a call on a charming Catalan village tucked into Spain’s Costa Brava.

Fare from € 5.249
<read more>
Travelroute
Day 1

Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

The capital of the Balearic Islands, beautiful Palma is famous for La Seu, the massive Cathedral of Santa Maria overlooking the bay. The adjacent Alumdaina Palace has been a royal residence since the 14th century, and the Gothic-style Bellver Castle houses the city's history museum. The Juan March Foundation Museum boasts a permanent collection of 70 works by the most important Spanish vanguard artists of the 20th century. Beachgoers will find abundant options offering water sports, sailing, horseback riding and more, and shoppers should check out Avenue Jaime III and the tree-lined Passeig del Born. The rest of Mallorca holds plenty of appeal as well, from the Carthusian monastery where George Sand and Frédéric Chopin once stayed to the remarkable stalactites of the underground lake known as Cuevas del Drach.

Day 2

Sailing Time

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board.

Day 3

Cartagena, Spain

Founded by Carthaginians circa 220 BC, Cartagena has one of the world's oldest naval bases and a wealth of Roman archaeology. The 1st-century Roman theater was only unearthed a few decades ago, and discoveries are ongoing, including an entire town block dating to Roman times called the Barrio del Foro Romano. Likewise of interest are the Casa de la Fortuna – a house with Roman murals, mosaics and excavated objects – and the Punic Wall Interpretation Center displaying remains of a 3rd century defensive wall. Archaeology doesn’t stop at the shoreline in this city, as the ARQUA Museum contains artefacts found off Murcia's coast. A lift takes visitors to a castle overlooking it all, Castillo de la Concepcíon, for panoramic views. Cartagena is not all history, however. There are rocky coves and sandy beaches to explore, fine dining with regional wines to taste and many opportunities for divers, hikers, golfers and windsurfers.

Day 4

Málaga, Spain

Tall hotels rise up from the golden beaches in Málaga, the historic enclave on the Costa del Sol. While the Mediterranean bathes its coastline, Málaga's mountains back the city to form a cocoon that ensures mild weather. Málaga is among the world's oldest cities, founded 2,800 years ago and settled by Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Visigoths and Christians. Looming over the skyline are the citadels Alcazaba and Castle of Gibralfaro, remnants of Moorish rule. Málaga was revitalized in recent years, now featuring some 30 museums and an edgy urban art community. Picasso's hometown naturally has a museum dedicated to him, as well as the Centre Pompidou and Museo Carmen Thyssen. Málaga also boasts a chic cuisine scene – but a simple bowl of traditional porra antequerana soup is never hard to find. A must-see in the hills surrounding Málaga are the pueblos blancos, white villages bursting with Andalusian charm.

Day 5

Málaga, Spain

Day 6

Gibraltar, Gibraltar

This British Overseas Territory on Spain’s southern coast is dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, fondly called The Rock. For spectacular views, take a six-minute cable car ride to the top, where you can see two continents, two bodies of water and three countries. A short walk brings you to the Gibraltar Nature Reserve and the cheeky Barbary macaques, the famous monkeys that roam freely here. Other highlights include the illuminated stalagmites of St. Michael’s Cave and the Great Siege Tunnels, a maze of defensive fortifications carved into the rock in the 18th century and extended to an underground city during World War II, housing the garrison, canons, artillery and food. Another cave adventure is the Gorham’s Cave Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site where rock carvings provide evidence of Neanderthal man dating back 120,000 years.

Day 7

Sailing Time

Day 8

Lisbon, Portugal

Disembarkation.
Portugal’s capital on the Atlantic Ocean is comprised of several key districts built on seven hills. A good place to begin is the historic Alfama district, a maze of medieval streets and alleyways leading to a hilltop on which you will find the Castelo de São Jorge. One of Lisbon’s most popular attractions, the castle provides sweeping views over the city. Descend to the riverfront Baixa district to enjoy its shopping, restaurants and neoclassical architecture. The Bélem district is home to a pair of UNESCO World Heritage sites: Bélem Tower, celebrating the Age of Discovery, and Jerónimos Monastery, a prime example of ornate Manueline architecture. If time permits, the charming villages of Sintra and Cascais are only a short distance away, and many choose to make the pilgrimage from Lisbon to Fátima, where apparitions of the Virgin Mary appeared in 1917.
Please note; fares are per person based on double occupancy. Taxes, fees and port expenses of €149 per passenger are included.

Day 2

Vigo, Spain

Vigo is simultaneously a quaint historic town and a world-class industrial port – it delights in both dimensions. The name Vigo comes from the Latin vicus, meaning small village, and yet this biggest city in Galicia is home to the world's largest fishing fleet. The keel was laid in Vigo for the inaugural luxury yacht of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection in January 2018. Meanwhile, ancient Vigo lives on in the Old Town, home to stately stone buildings and the underground remains of the ancient city wall. Monte del Castro rises in the city center where Vigo was first settled. In addition to beautiful views, the mountain gives a glimpse into life 2,000 years ago and also features an ancient fortress, castle ruins and lovely gardens. Many visitors to Vigo will want to make the famous pilgrimage to the celebrated cathedral in nearby Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO World Heritage site said to hold the tomb of Saint John.

Day 5

Bilbao, Spain

Perhaps no single edifice has had more impact on a city than the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao. Designed by renowned architect Franck Gehry and opened in 1997, the massive, billowing, titanium-clad structure reflects the city’s revitalized relationship with the river that runs through it, and the modern collection within the museum is as impressive as the exterior. Other worthwhile museums include the Museo de Bellas Artes and the Euskal Museoa, devoted to Basque culture. A contrast to the city’s modern sensibilities, the colourful medieval streets of Casco Viejo are filled with shops, markets, restaurants and taverns, as well as historic churches such as the 14th-century Catedral de Santiago. While in Bilbao, one must stop into a couple of bars for some pintxos, delightful Basque nibbles typically speared onto bread with a toothpick. The local txakoli wine makes a nice complement.

Day 6

Biarritz (St. Jean de Luz), France

This seaside resort in French Basque Country lies only 15 miles from the Spanish border. Long popular with surfers, Biarritz now offers stylish boutiques and sophisticated restaurants to complement its beach bars. Perhaps French fashion designer Coco Chanel foresaw the future when she opened her first shop here in 1915. Visit the city’s most famous landmark, Hotel du Palais, built by Napoleon III as a summer home for his bride, Empress Eugenie. Just 20 minutes from Biarritz, the resort town of St. Jean de Luz features beautiful 17th-century architecture, including the Church of St. John the Baptist, one of the most representative of Basque churches.

Day 7

Bordeaux, France

Located in southwestern France, Bordeaux is a handsome 18th-century city with stately buildings, broad avenues and historic public squares. Highlights include the majestic gate known as Porte de Bourgogne, the stained glass windows of Bordeaux Cathedral, the 12th-century Romanesque basilica and the impressive Hôtel de Ville, or City Hall. But no visit to Bordeaux is complete without an acknowledgment of what makes this region of France known worldwide – wine! Wine lovers everywhere will recognize appellations such as Pauillac, St. Emilion, Margaux and Sauternes. Visit a wine chateau and learn how the grapes are grown, aged in oak barrels and then processed. It’s a fascinating tour of the vintner’s art.

Day 8

Bordeaux, France

Day 3

Belle Île, France

Belle Ile means “beautiful isle,” and indeed it is. Located off the coast of the Brittany region of France, the island boasts 60 gorgeous beaches and a rugged coastline. Worth a visit is Citadelle Vauban, a star-shaped fortress in the town of Le Palais that was built by the famous military engineer in the 18th century. Further afield on the island’s northern tip, the fort at Pointe des Poulains houses a museum dedicated to 19th-century actress Sarah Bernhardt, who made it her home in 1894. On the south shores of the island, one of France’s most impressive lighthouses overlooks the Aiguilles de Port Coton, rock formations that jut from the sea foam frothing below and create a natural spectacle so striking it was immortalized by painter Claude Monet.

Day 5

Saint-Malo, France

Located on the northeast coast of Brittany, Saint-Malo has long been an important French port and today keeps busy receiving ferries arriving from the UK. This walled city is ringed with mighty ramparts and towers built to protect its inhabitants from intruders long ago, and a walk along the ramparts makes for a pleasant tour. The most famous attraction and one of the most popular in France is nearby Mont St. Michel, a rocky tidal island that has been one of the top pilgrimage sites for Christians through the ages. Its crowning glory is a Romanesque abbey built in the 11th century that clings to the mountaintop, and the entire island is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Day 6

Honfleur, France

Situated where the Seine estuary meets the English Channel, Honfleur has been an important port of trade and defence for centuries. Tall, narrow buildings line cobblestone streets in the Vieux Bassin, the historic harbour, and attract Parisians on summer weekends. Look up for the 15th-century wooden spire of the Église Saint-Étienne, the oldest church in town and now a maritime museum. Contrast it with the Église Sainte-Catherine, built entirely of wood by the town’s shipbuilders. Honfleur has a long tradition of inspiring artists in the impressionist school. One is native son Eugène Boudin, whose work is on display in a museum dedicated to him. Honfleur is also the gateway to the beaches of Normandy, where Allied troops landed during World War II, and the D-Day Landing Museum.

Day 7

Guernsey, Channel Islands, UK

Guernsey is a self-governing British Crown Dependency, and one of the Channel Islands in the English Channel close to the French coast. The handsome town of Regency-style buildings is a short walk up from the pier and a delight to explore. Visit Castle Cornet, a fortress that has guarded the harbour for eight centuries. After visiting the five museums housed within, you’ll become an expert on Guernsey history. Another popular attraction is Hauteville House, the former home of the exiled 19th-century French literary giant and author of Les Miserables, Victor Hugo. It’s overflowing with his collection of secondhand furniture and bric-a-brac.

London (Greenwich), England, UK

London is one of the great cities of the world, and its attractions are well known: the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral. If you’re a first time visitor to London, you’ll want to see them all. If time permits, try to fit in a visit to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, the shopping districts of Regent Street and Knightsbridge, and the energy of Covent Garden and the Portobello Road market. London is also an art lover’s city, so you’ll want to visit the National Gallery on historic Trafalgar Square and the renowned Tate Modern. After all that sightseeing, you will have earned an opportunity for a quiet stroll in beautiful Hyde Park!

Day 2

London (Greenwich), England, UK

Day 3

Bruges (Zeebrugge), Belgium

Often referred to as the "Venice of the North," Bruges dates from the early Middle Ages when the town was world-renowned for its immensely prosperous wool and cloth trade. It was also Northern Europe’s most important trading port until the 15th century, after the gradual silting of the estuary that linked Bruges to the sea. Today this magnificently preserved city is one of Belgium’s greatest attractions. This fairy-tale town is a living museum with intimate, winding streets and a lacework of canals lined with step-gabled houses, churches and market squares, as well as museums that hold some of the country’s finest collections of Flemish art.

Day 4

Antwerp, Belgium

A diamond center, a magnet for fashionistas, a European cultural hub and mecca for brewmeisters – Antwerp is a multifaceted jewel. Meet the Rubens, van Dycks and van Eycks that fill its world-class museums. Admire the two oldest printing presses in the world at the sublime Museum Plantin-Moretus, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Wander through one of the world’s most beautiful train stations and down the nave of the Antwerp Cathedral, where religious paintings by Rubens and other Flemish masters are on display. If you love fashion or simply want to experience the local shopping culture, check out the beautiful Stadsfeestzaal, or Festival Hall, a gloriously renovated exhibition hall turned shopping center. Antwerp’s love affair with fashion dates back to the 1980s and the Antwerp Six, perhaps the greatest fashion collective of all time.

Day 5

Antwerp, Belgium

Day 6

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Dutch capital is one of Europe’s best-preserved cities – with 60 miles of canals and nearly 7,000 buildings dating from the 18th century or earlier. A good way to see the narrow shop houses is on a canal cruise. Consider a canal tour that includes the poignant Anne Frank House on the Prinsengracht Canal. Amsterdam is an art lover’s city with over 70 museums, the best known being the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, considered a national treasure for its collection of masterworks by Rembrandt, Vermeer and others. Don’t miss a trip to Zaanse Schans, a picturesque village of windmills, factories and workshops giving a glimpse of what it was like to live in the Netherlands in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Day 7

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Day 8

Sailing Time

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board. Enjoy a workout with a view at the gym, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, watch the sky transform at sunset from The Observation Lounge, or find an intimate alcove in The Living Room and lose yourself in a favourite book.

Day 9

Hamburg, Germany

Connected to the North Sea by the Elbe River, Hamburg sits just a few miles up river from the busiest manmade waterway in the world – the Kiel Canal. Needless to say, Hamburg has a rich maritime history, and this is a city of superlatives on a worldwide scale. It has the most bridges at 2,300, six times as many as Venice. The Speicherstadt district, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the largest complex of architecturally significant warehouses, and Miniatur Wunderland is the world’s largest model railroad and cityscape. Take a tour of the bustling harbour from Landungsbrücken, a floating dock in the St. Pauli area, where you’ll have an opportunity to see Hamburg’s newest attraction, the striking Elbphilharmonie symphony hall built on the waterfront in the old warehouse district. Or for a more serene boating experience, go out on Alster Lake, right in the heart of the city.

Day 3

Sailing the Kiel Canal

The busiest artificial waterway in the world, Kiel Canal was opened by Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1895. It runs a length of 61 miles from the locks in Kiel Holtenau to the locks in Brunsbüttel. Some 43,000 commercial ships and 20,00 private yachts pass this way between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea yearly. The volume and diversity of the shipping is extraordinary, with masts flying flags from around the world. The canal passes under numerous bridges, including the Levensau High Bridge dating from 1893. Amongst the bustle there's a sense of peace as well – the banks of the canal are often wooded and rural with vistas of the agricultural countryside of Schleswig-Holstein. Large cruise ships cannot pass through this canal due to clearance limits under bridges, so your sailing is a special chance to witness the action and beauty of Kiel Canal.

Day 4

Berlin (Rostock), Germany

The yacht docks in Warnemünde, a charming resort town with a popular beach, a pretty promenade and gabled fishermen’s houses. Nearby Rostock enchants with its university established in 1419, St. Mary’s Church with its famous astronomical clock, the 13th-century Town Hall and the quaint Old Town. You might also travel inland to the quintessential fairy-tale castle of Schwerin Palace. Further inland the incomparable historical icons of Berlin await you, from massive Brandenburg Gate to the modern dome of the Reichstag to the East Side Gallery, a remaining section of the Berlin Wall covered in paintings by artists from all over the world. Countless museums command attention in this city, including the Topography of Terror, the Jewish Museum, the Allied Museum and the many found on Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Berlin is also home to the enormous, opulent Charlottenburg Palace and its ornate gardens.

Day 5

Berlin (Rostock), Germany

Day 6

Bornholm, Denmark

Picturesque half-timbered houses and cobblestone streets, Denmark’s highest waterfall and third largest forest, historic round churches, castle ruins and photo ops everywhere you go – welcome to Bornholm, a Danish treasure that lies closer to Sweden than Denmark. With the island’s comparatively mild climate, beaches are the main attraction for the hardy Swedes, but visitors from everywhere are enchanted by medieval Rønne and the unique round churches that were used as fortresses as well as places of worship during the Middle Ages. Over the years the Danish island has reinvented itself as an eco-friendly, foodie destination, an international center of contemporary glass and ceramic art, and a biker’s paradise with 150 miles of routes, including a few for mountain bike enthusiasts. Hop on and go exploring!

Day 7

Copenhagen, Denmark

Perched upon a rock in the harbour, the Little Mermaid welcomes all to this lively, fun-loving city of Danes, said to be some of the happiest people in the world. From the fabulous food and fresh water to free education, free healthcare and a 37-hour work week, this is a society firmly focused on the good life, and its capital is a joy to explore. From an outstanding assembly of modern architecture, world-class museums and charming canals to the lively streets of the Old Town that wind through the world’s oldest kingdom, Copenhagen has it all – not to mention 15 Michelin-starred restaurants and the Stroget, the world’s longest pedestrian shopping street offering the very best in Scandinavian design.

Day 4

Tallinn, Estonia

Choral music rings out from old Lutheran churches in this magnificently restored Baltic city. Built by German merchants who grew rich on the flourishing Hanseatic trade, Tallinn is one of the best-preserved capitals in Europe. Its magnificent Town Hall is the oldest city hall in Northern Europe and the only one preserved in Gothic style. But two centuries of czarist rule and nearly half a century of Soviet domination added a distinct Russian flavour to its Germanic heritage. Walk the atmospheric streets to Toompea, the upper town with its majestic castle and splendid views overlooking the city, and then explore the ancient convents, steepled churches, handsome guild houses and burghers' mansions in the lower town. The entire historic district is a UNESCO World Heritage site. After exploring, relax at the famous Kadriorg Park with its exquisite gardens and colourful palace. More than a quarter of Tallinn’s acreage is public and green.

Day 5

St. Petersburg, Russia

The former capital of Russia built by Peter the Great and known as The Imperial City, St. Petersburg is a great walking city with impressive royal architecture earning it a designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site. A must-see is the palatial Hermitage Museum, a massive treasure trove of art and antiques that rivals the Louvre as one of the great museums of the world. Other sights include the imposing Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood, with its colourful onion-domed cupolas covered in gold and mosaics, and the impressive fountains and gardens of Peterhof Palace. Just 40 minutes outside the city is Catherine Palace, an astounding Rococo palace that was the summer residence of the czars.

Day 9

Mariehamn Islands, Finland

You’ll want to be on deck when sailing in and out of the Åland Islands, as this Finnish archipelago of more than 6,500 islands is simply spectacular. Mariehamn is the capital, a picturesque, laid-back town of 11,000 residents with a hospitable islander lifestyle and a strong maritime culture. Mariehamn was once the home of the world’s largest fleet of oceanic sailing ships, and a stroll through the Maritime Quarter reveals boat building workshops and smithy and craft shops. Named Finland’s best museum in 2016, the Maritime Museum offers excellent insight into Aland’s maritime heritage. Moored beside it is the Pommern, one of the world's last merchant sailing ships, just waiting to be explored. Or visit the Bomarsund Fortress ruins just a half hour from town. Together with Kastelholm Castle, the fortress bears witness to the heyday of the Swedish Kingdom and the golden years of the Russian Empire.

Day 10

Stockholm, Sweden

The approach to Sweden’s capital city of Stockholm, through the untouched nature of the archipelago, is breath taking. Spread over 14 islands, Stockholm is called “The City That Floats on Water.” Not surprisingly, 57 bridges traverse the city. Start your tour at Djurgården, an island that was once the hunting grounds of the king and is now home to the fascinating Vasa Museum, housing the world’s only preserved 17th-century warship. Stockholm has 70 museums, including the world’s oldest open-air museum, the Skansen. Explore the narrow streets and medieval buildings of Gamla Stan, the Old Town founded in the 13th century. Stockholm also gives you access to three UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Viking outpost of Birka, the unique cemetery of Skogskyrkogården, and Drottningholm Palace, which has been home to the royal family since 1662.

Day 11

Stockholm, Sweden
