Overview

In partnership with UGC and with featured guest: Patrice Leconte, the director of Les Bronzés, Ridicule, Le Mari de la coiffeuse, La Fille sur le pont, Maigret and many other cult films and popular hits.

Starting in Athens, step aboard Le Bougainville for an 8-day cruise between Greece and the majestic Maltese coast.

Le Bougainville will take you to Patmos where you will discover its monastery and the cave where Saint John is said to have received his visions.

This cruise will also enable you to discover Hydra, a small island of old-worldly charm where motorised traffic is banned.

You will then follow a memorable crossing of the Corinth Canal and make a port of call at Itea, not far from the marvellous Delphi archaeological site.

Then, Southern Italy promises suspended moments where the beauty of the shores combines with the beauty of its historical remnants, which remain fascinating. In Puglia, Gallipoli, meaning "beautiful town" in Greek, reveals its Hellenic origins and offers up its singular atmosphere, where life is good. In Syracuse, the Sicilian soul unfolds across the island of Ortygia - the oldest part of the city -, a maze of small streets dotted with churches, palaces, ancient remnants, sheltering a majestic cathedral in its very heart.

You will make a final call on Gozo, an unspoiled island that is home to a megalithic site listed with UNESCO.

Your cruise will come to an end in Valletta, capital of the island of Malta and former stronghold of the Knights of the Order of Malta.
