Corsican Cruise - Leaving from Nice (port-to-port package)

Kalliste. The most beautiful. The ancient Greeks used this name to talk about the allure of Corsica, a veritable heaven on earth that seems to have every wonder of the world on its shores or in its hills. Join us on a cruise to discover the kaleidoscope of blue in the sea waters and the fresh mountain air in the peaks. Our stopovers and tours bring you to the major, exciting sites one after the other: Bonifacio, Porto-Vecchio, Bastia, l’Ile Rousse. Corsica’s deep soul can be felt within the expanse of its wild, on its ancient grounds, in its myrtle underbrush, along its winding paths, and above in the clear, star-filled skies. The island is a timeless work of art, a mosaic of emotions, and a tableau of splendor and mysteries.
