Mon, 03.07.2017

Kerkyra/Corfu/Ionian Islands/Greece, 7.00 – 14.00 hrs


Lush, green and more Italian than Greek: Empress Elisabeth of Austria loved the island and had her summer palace Achilleion* built there. Active guests can explore the island on horseback*, whereas gourmets can opt for the culinary variant*.

Messina/Sicily/Italy, 10.00 – 19.00 hrs
Cruising off Stromboli late in the evening

Capri/Italy , 12.00 – 19.00 hrs

Be it artists, politicians or writers, Capri has attracted the European jet set for over 100 years. Discover a holiday paradise bathed sunlight and which changes in colour from one hour to the next. The highlight of the island is a place without sunlight – the legendary Blue Grotto – which you can explore on your own before the EUROPA 2 cruises around the island at sunset.

Thu, 06.07.2017

Civitavecchia (Rome)/Italy , 8.00 – 20.00 hrs

Fri, 07.07.2017

Bonifacio/Corsica/France , 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

As if on a balcony, the town is perched over the sea on a limestone plateau. Take a city tour through perhaps the most impressive old town in the Mediterranean. A potential alternative programme is a trip to the beach on the Iles Lavezzi*.

Sat, 08.07.2017

Portofino/Italy , 10.00 – 19.00 hrs

Rub shoulders with high society and take a stroll along the bustling seafront with its boutiques and cafes. Set off on a kayak* adventure or a Stand Up Paddling tour* to the most beautiful bays in Portofino and its fascinating underwater world.

Nice/France , 8.00 – 19.00 hrs

The picturesque village of Saint-Paul de Vence* is situated in the heart of Provence.

    Golf - challenges in the Mediterranean

    Thu 06.07 Civitavecchia (Rome) – Parco de’Medici Golf Club
    In the place where, in the 16th century, Pope Leo X hunted partridges, today golfers search for lost balls. Embark on an exceptionally interesting golfing adventure right in front of the gates of Rome. With numerous bunkers, ditches and six ponds, this challenging 27-hole course will push players to their limits.

    Fri 07.07 Bonifacio – Golf de Sperone golf club
    Players face a unique experience consisting of scenery and golfing pleasure. Even the tee box on hole 15, a par 4 up to 308 m (1,010 ft) in length, will prove a topic of endless conversation after the game. This spectacular dogleg to the left opens out onto a sliver of land jutting out into the Mediterranean. This hole is absolutely perfect for a selfie!

    Sun 09.07 Nice – Opio Valbonne Golf Club
    The oldest golf course in the region is nestled between the port of Nice and Grasse, a town famous for its perfume industry. In 1966, the fairways were carved out of the old forest on the plateau. The course has been modernised several times since then, most recently in 2002. Today, the 18 holes are in impeccable condition and consist of two halves: the first nine holes are obviously slightly more difficult, whereas the last nine are the more leisurely. The fairways are of considerable length.
