Board Le Jacques-Cartier for an authentic 8-day cruise to discover the wonders of the Italian and French coasts and enjoy a taste of la dolce vita.
Departing from Civitavecchia, your ship will first sail to Bonifacio, "Corsica's Gibraltar". A former pirates' lair and a stunning sentinel standing atop tall limestone cliffs in the far south of the Isle of Beauty, it will reveal to you a little of its troubled past.
You will then set join Calvi in the heart of the Balagne region. Between steep peaks and sublime beaches with turquoise waters, you will experience a wild and authentic Corsica.
Next, Le Jacques-Cartier will head for Portoferraio, a small corner of paradise on the island of Elba, where Napoleon spent many days in exile, before stopping at Marina di Carrara, a seaside resort with a relaxed atmosphere, where you will be able to enjoy the long beaches.
On the Italian Riviera, Portofino, built in a natural harbour protected by a pine forest, is a picturesque and lively port that has successfully retained its authenticity and traditions. It will delight you with its charm and beauty.
The last stop on your journey, Antibes, a seaside resort on the Côte d'Azur, will delight you with its history as witnessed by the 16th century ramparts surrounding its old town and home to the Fort Carré. Its wooded peninsula, its long palm-fringed beaches and its nightlife complete this very special setting.
Your cruise will end in Marseille, the Phocean city with an age-old history, where you will be able to visit emblematic sites such as the Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica that overlooks the city.
