Italy’s coastline has been kind enough to create four
itineraries. In the north, Portofino, Santa Margherita
and the newly rebuilt Cinque Terre. In the middle, Elba,
Porto Ercole and Monte Argentario. Move south to the
Bay of Naples for Ischia, then to Capri and Amalfi. Sicily
and the Lipari islands make up this quintessential quartet.
Shop, eat, go sightseeing, visit galleries, the opera,
ancient ruins, modern marvels – it is all here and all you
have to do is arrive in style and be part of the scene.
Done Italy? Try Corsica where a cruise from Calvi to
Bonifacio ranks as one of the greatest journeys of any
lifetime. Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda has the razzmatazz
of Porto Cervo alongside Europe’s most beautiful golf
course – Pevero.
Off the coast of Spain, the Balearics including
Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera have an almost
unbeatable appeal and the legendary lifestyle of Ibiza
is just one tiny fraction of what they have to offer.
