Le Bougainville's Maiden Voyage Through the Mediterranean Islands

Travel from Nice to Athens on this 8 Day Cruise aboard Ponant's Le Bougainville Book by Jan 15, 2019


Set off to discover the ancient treasures of the Mediterranean with an all-new PONANT itinerary between Nice and Athens.

During these 8 days of sailing, Le Bougainville will enable you to explore mythical sites. Leaving from Nice, you will sail towards Bonifacio, the jewel of the far south of Corsica. A veritable fortress sculpted by the wind and the spray, the "sentinel city" will reveal its historical centre and its long-cobbled streets. Your yacht will head for the Amalfi Coast, the jewel of Southern Italy, where you will visit Salerno, a superb little town particularly renowned for its Duomo. Our next stop is Sicily where we will call at Catania. This city, situated on the slopes of Mount Etna, has been destroyed seven times by the volcano's eruptions! A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is a city of incomparable cultural richness. After a stop in Crete, we will head to the charming town of Nafplion the departure point for visiting the famous Epidaurus Theatre and the Mycenae archaeological site, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
