Circumnavigate two storied, fiercely independent, intriguing islands

Set sail on a voyage dedicated to the exploration of two fiercely independent islands–Sardinia and Corsica. These islands share many historic elements through millennia of empires and civilizations yet maintain their identities and independent attitudes from their governing nations of Italy and France, respectively. Stroll through medieval walled cities and old coastal villages. Sip local wine and savor regional seafood dishes. Visit UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Sardina’s Su Nuraxi and Corsica’s Calanques de Piana. Sail aboard the incomparable and legendary square-rig tall ship Sea Cloud, departing from and returning to Naples, allowing time to enjoy the spectacle of life under sail. Stand on deck and watch the orchestrated frenzy of crew members go aloft in the web of Sea Cloud’s riggings to handset 30 sails as you feel the deck heel underfoot.

  • Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Su Nuraxi di Barumini, one of the largest and most well-preserved Bronze Age stone fortresses known as nuraghi

  • Get a taste of Alghero and its surroundings: discover the medieval city, Neptune’s Grotto nestled in Capo Caccia’s peninsula, and Leda’ d’Ittiri wine-tasting estate

  • See the stunning karst limestone rock ravines of Les Calanques de Piana, one of the region’s most stunning landscapes

  • Bask in the comfort and intrigue of the legendary and historic Sea Cloud as you sail from Calvi to Bastia and around wild Cap Corse

  • Explore Naples & Pompeii on a 3-day pre-voyage extension
