Join us aboard the Panorama II for a glorious journey to many places that are beyond the reach of the megacruise ships. From our starting point in Tuscany we sail to the enchanting island of Elba, best known as Napoleon’s island of exile before continuing to Corsica for four days of discovery. Although officially part of France, the island of Corsica has its own identity in everything from customs to language and benefits from magnificent geographical diversity ranging from wonderful natural harbours to picture perfect hilltop villages and a majestic countryside of vineyards and deep valleys. After time spent calling into some stunning harbours, exploring Medieval towns, charming villages and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, we sail to Sardinia with its unspoilt coastline and fascinating cultural heritage. Sardinia is endlessly fascinating and ideal for exploration by small ship. With so many experiences on offer during our voyage we have planned the itinerary carefully to ensure there is adequate time to relax on board, join the guided excursions and explore some of the delightful towns under your own steam.
