Here is the perfect voyage for those who love Italy, travelling in the company of a small group of like minded travellers and sailing aboard small, private yacht-like vessels with a varied programme of interesting visits ashore. Sailing between Sicily and Dubrovnik, our itinerary will take us off the beaten track to many places that are beyond the reach of the mega-cruise ships. The centrepiece of our voyage is our four days spent sailing around the heel of Italy and discovering Puglia’s many gems. Based on its strategic location, the region was colonised, invaded and conquered for centuries with each dynasty leaving its mark. From prehistoric dwellings and traditional trulli abodes to splendid Baroque architecture and 15th century palazzos, we will explore the region with local guides. Our voyage ends in the beautiful, azure waters of the Croatian coast with our calls in Split and Korcula before we end with an overnight mooring in the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik where you may choose to extend your stay before returning to London.
