Group tour to Corsica and Sardinia
Corsica and Sardinia
Discover the jewels of the Mediterranean: Corsica and Sardinia.
Barely 10 miles of sparkling Mediterranean waters separate the islands of Corsica and Sardinia. Despite the proximity, the two offer distinct, unique holiday experiences. On this magical tour of Mediterranean islands, pass through these diverse landscapes. Glittering bays and luxurious beaches transform into enigmatic valleys, enchanting dense forests and crumbling hilltop villages in an impossibly short distance. In this beautiful spot of sunshine, glimpse a myriad of diversity. As well as this, travel through time and history come to life. Particularly with visits to the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Garibaldi Museum.

We take the short sail to Sardinia (Santa Teresa). Upon disembarkation, we make our way to the northeast coast and the beautiful Costa Smeralda area which will be our base in Sardinia.
La Maddalena and Caprera Islands

The first stop is a visit to the Garibaldi Museum, where the man, pivotal in the unification of an Italian nation, lived for many years. Following this, we can either enjoy a panoramic drive around the islands, linked by a road bridge, or cruise around this galaxy of islands.
Today we travel to the western side of Sardinia to visit the old town of Alghero with its Catalan architecture and dialect. Stroll along the narrow streets of pastel facades and iron-wrought balconies as you explore the historic old town. En route back to the hotel, we can also stop at the medieval town of Castelsardo which, clinging to a hill, dominates the Gulf of Asinara. This town is well known for basket weaving and you can still see old women sitting in front of their houses making baskets.
