This is a voyage that will appeal to those who love Italy, and who enjoy hopping between islands. Our late summer voyage is wonderful and rare opportunity to visit the islands of Elba, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and Gozo from the comfort of the MS Serenissima. The islands feature an array of ancient ruins and attractive towns and villages which we will discover during our included, guided excursions whilst we have also allowed for ample time to explore independently.
Sailing from Livorno we first visit the enchanting island of Elba, best known as Napoleon’s island of exile from where we continue on to Corsica. Despite officially being a part of France, the island of Corsica has its own identity with stunning natural harbours and charming towns. Continuing to Sardinia we spend time in Alghero and Cagliari followed by four days of exploration of Sicily which, with a history of 3000 years has a wealth of sites to discover. Our penultimate call will be the pretty Maltese island of Gozo. Local guides and our onboard Guest Speaker will contribute greatly to our enjoyment and understanding of these island gems and you will find yourself wanting to return time and time again.
