Cruise route

Departing from Sardinia, we’ll sail through the archipelago of La Maddalena and on the first stage stretch around the east coast to Cap Corse. Then we’ll sail along the south and west coasts depending on time and current conditions. We can look forward to:

  • Saint Florent ("Little Saint Tropez"), an ancient fishing town with a Genovese tower and the 4th-century Nebbio Cathedral.
  • The port of Calvi with its massive citadel, where Admiral Nelson lost his eye during the siege in 1794 and Christopher Columbus was allegedly born.
  • Calanche de Piana, with rocky cliffs of red granite sloping steeply into the sea. 
  • Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleon and the capital of Corsica
  • Bonifacio, an ancient town high on the cliffs. The deep natural fjord creates an ideally protected refuge here, where a Phoenician port once was several thousand years ago.
  • The rocky island of Lavezzi in the Strait of Bonifacio, with beautiful moorings only accessible in good weather
 About Corsica
Corsica is a French island and the fourth largest in the Mediterranean. The official language is French, but Corsican is also spoken here. The original dialect had long been dying out, but is now widely taught with a strong movement in Corsica seeking greater autonomy. The island has certainly had a turbulent history. Birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, it boasts unspoilt countryside and a number of glacial lakes. Parts of the island are listed under UNESCO. The full length of the coast is 1047 km.
