Setting sail from Nice, your ship will make its way to the Isle of Beauty for a first stop in Bonifacio, a jewel in the far south of Corsica. Veritable fortress sculpted by the wind and the spray, the "sentinel city" will reveal its historical centre and its long-cobbled streets.
Le Bellot will then sail to the island of Ponza. On this volcanic isle where Circe was born, like Ulysses you will be captivated by its wild contours, its hidden swimming spots and its small, adorable fishing port.
Then, you will visit Amalfi and its coast, which are magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Perched between sky and sea, Amalfi presents amazing landscapes.
You will leave Italy and head for the Greek islands. After a stop in Katakolo, your ship will join the Delphi sanctuary of Greek gods which you will reach via Itea. Delphi is located on a grandiose site that is one of Greece's most beautiful natural landscapes. You will walk in the footsteps of the pilgrims of old, who came here to consult the famous oracle.
On board Le Bellot, you will take the astonishing Corinth Canal, a famous sea channel dug out by men in the 19th century, for an unforgettable navigation.
Your cruise will end in Athens, the mythical city dominated by the Acropolis and its monuments that form the most extraordinary architectural and artistic collection bequeathed by Ancient Greece to the rest of the world.
