Under Full Sails in Tuscany & on the Côte d’Azur

From EUR €2,055


Short break from your daily routine
Although in the calendar, spring starts in mid March, it often seems to take forever until the first warmer days arrive. If you do not want to wait any longer, simply sail away from your daily chores and enjoy a long weekend at sea. On board our windjammer it is easy to unwind and take in the fresh breeze and sunshine.

Portofino, de luxe fishing village
Here, you’d hardly be surprised if Sophia Loren and Grace Kelly strolled past. With its quaint lanes and brilliant houses that compete in shades of dusky pink, rusty red and ochre yellow, Portofino has been drawing the international jetset since the nineteen-fifties. The Piazzetta by the harbour offers the best views of white yachts, colourful fishing boats and elegant boutiques.

Menton, sweet town of lemons
Where Nice and Cannes show off, Menton impresses with elegant restraint. The sweet little town on the Eastern Côte d’Azur is a lot less touristy than its flashy neighbours, enchanting visitors with Italian flair and pastelcoloured facades in its old town. As the legendary town of lemons, Menton is living proof of how wonderfully sour “la dolce vita” can be.

Day 1 - Day 1 Livorno/Italy
Livorno, itself a child of the Renaissance, is the gateway to Tuscany - the land of cypresses, the Italian lifestyle, art and architecture. Lucca is a Renaissance masterpiece. Magnificent palaces, richly decorated churches and elegant piazzas where you can see the Italians enjoying the summer - this jewel of a town combines the magnificence of typical Tuscan architecture with small town charm. Siena is one of the most beautiful Italian Gothic cities. Its old quarter, like the medieval towers of the world-famous walled town of San Gimignano, is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Day 2 - Day 2 Portoferraio/Elba
Although Elba is only a small Tuscan island, you will be surprised by how diverse it is. Imposing cliffs, white sandy beaches, avenues of cypresses, vineyards and olive groves, traditional villages and elegant beach resorts make the place of Napoleon's exile somewhere you would in fact like to be banished for longer. The beautiful old town of Portoferraio with its narrow streets of steps and medieval fortress is set high up on a rocky headland. In the enchanting town of Porto Azzurro, the palm-lined promenades, charming piazzas and small beach are at the centre of the town's activities.
Day 3 - Day 3 Portofino/Italy
Portofino has a prominent position on a peninsula on the Italian Riviera and, since the 1950s, has developed into an elegant marina. The "dolce vita" seems to have been born here. You can unwind in classy bars and cafés in front of beautifully restored facades, browse for treasures in the backstreets and observe the comings and goings on the port's promenade. At first glance, Portofino is a picturesque fishing village. However, you will soon notice that it is also a sophisticated retreat for exclusive megayachts, as well as a great hideaway for anyone who knows how to enjoy the charming and stylish traditional atmosphere.
Day 4 - Day 4 Menton/France
Day 5 - Day 5 Nice/France
Nice lies in one of the world's most lavishly endowed natural landscapes. The sea glows azure and the mountains in the background rise picturesquely up into the sky. Castle Hill gives you a fantastic view over the rambling old town - a labyrinth of alleyways with Baroque churches, pastel-coloured houses and red-tiled roofs. The Promenade des Anglais, a sophisticated, five-kilometre-(3 miles)long walkway along the magnificent Baie des Anges and its long beach, lies at the heart of the elegant new town, with its splendid palaces and aristocratic hotels in the Belle-Époque and Art Deco styles.
Day 6 - Please Note:
Itineraries are subject to change.
