Itinerary

Day One

Our Tour Manager will be waiting to meet you as you arrive in Olbia, today. The hotel is just a short coach ride from the airport, and once there you'll be free to relax and perhaps wander into town.

Day Two

Join us on an excursion to the Costa Smeralda, 20 kilometres of tastefully developed, reclaimed coastline that has become a playground of the wealthy. Hidden coves, offshore islets and the unusual architecture of the 'capital' Porto Cervo all add to the charm of this unique location. You'll also have free time to swim and enjoy lunch in the beautiful Baia di Sardinia.

Day Three

A picturesque fishing port, Alghero is the Spanish-influenced main town of Sardinia's north-west coast. The cobbled streets of its Old Quarter weave past the cathedral and open onto a harbour lined with bars and restaurants while, out in the bay, the long mass of Capo Caccia lies across the water like a slumbering giant. Don't miss the chance to float into the otherwordly limestone caves of Neptune's Grotto on an optional boat trip across the bay.

Day Four

Today we'll leave Italy behind, heading to the port of Santa Teresa di Gallura to catch the ferry to the French island of Corsica. We'll disembark in the stunning natural harbour of Bonifacio, and you'll have time to climb up to the haute ville to take in the views (or simply relax in a quayside cafe).

You'll have time for lunch in one of the many local restaurants before our coach carries you north, through the rolling green landscape, to Ajaccio and your second hotel.

Day Five

The capital of Corsica and the island's largest city, Ajaccio shelters at the northern end of one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful bays. It is also famous as the place where Napoleon was born in 1769. Discover its 15th-century citadel, cafes, restaurants and many monuments to the Little Emperor on a half-day guided tour then continue exploring or return to the hotel to relax.

Day Six

Spend today relaxing. Head to the nearby beaches, make the most of your hotel's facilities or head back into Ajaccio to explore a little more.

Day Seven

Our final included excursion takes us further up Corsica's west coast to Scandola Nature Reserve and the twisting inlets and outcrops of the Calanques de Piana. Here the elements have shaped and shifted the pink granite landscape into forms that seem almost alive. We'll follow the road past Piana's pastel houses to Porto's harbour and pebble beach, and you'll have time to explore here before returning to the coach or joining an optional 90-minute cruise along the coast for the very best views.

Day Eight

Say a fond farewell to your hotel and Corsica, this morning as we cross back to Bonifacio, take the ferry to Sardinia and wind our way back to Olbia in time to catch your flight home.
