Discovering Art from the Sea
Western history was born around the Mediterranean Sea. Ancient Greece, Troy, Medieval City-States, Venice, Costantinople and Rome grew and developped thanks to the routes along the Mediterranean, and left ever lasting masterpieces by or very close to the shores. Pompei, Rome, Venice, Athens, Amalfi, Dubrovnik, Palermo, Istambul, Barcelona, Taormina are just the bigger or the most famous sites, towering over hundreds of others smaller jewels, like Portofino, Rovigno, Crete, Bonifacio, Santorini, Parga, Eze sur Mer and St. Paul de Vence. Let our crews prepare an itinerary that will help you to discover these marvels from a unique and exclusive point of view: a privately chartered yacht. Contact us to arrange a comprehensive tour with your own personal referenced art guide. More practical. Expensive hotels, standard service, crowded restaurant with a wine list three times more expensive than the producer's price, crowded transport. With a sailboat cruise you avoid all these inconveniences and add to your holiday the flavour of a unique form of discovery. And you can modify your itinerary at your discrection.

Maritime culture cruises
There are not many sailors around who are able to transmit the heritage and the meaning of a wandering life on the seven seas. But we do know some of them. Some of our skippers could write books of tales, if only they had the desire to stop wandering and start writing! Contact us if what you are searching is an idea of what is life on the Sea nowadays, its unwritten rules, its superstitions and heritage. Needless to say this kind of cruises are arranged on a strictly personalized base, so just contact us and let's find the perfect crew to sail you around. Crews deserving a mention can work on various vessels. Some of them are on the list below (*).


Some examples
The Venetian Trade Route.
Start or arrive in Trieste, visiting Venice, Mali Losinji, Rovinji, Porez and other citadels built along the medieval trade route, discovering on the way the blue waters of Istria. Or cruise more south concentrating on Hvar, Split, Dubrovnik and Korzula.

Ancient Greece
Athens, Crete, Rhodes, Santorini.... the cradle of philosophy and civilization... and spend your evening having a champagne on deck watching sunset rather than searching for a hotel.

Ancient Rome
Embark few miles from Rome and follow its way south, through the spectacular Ponza, the still perfectly sheltered Roman harbour of Ventotene, the thermaes at Ischia, the ruins of Pompei and Augustus villa in Capri...

Southern France
The Riviera is always a fascinating place. You wander around the small streets of Nice, Cannes or Villefranche and you enter the spirit of the 20th century. You really expect to see Sean Connery pop out from a small alley with his Aston Martin... ok, in that case you may be mistaken... but surely you can see him sitting in some cafè... There are no limits in the Riviera possible destinations: Avignon, Arles, Aix, St. Paul de Vence, Eze sur Mer, Nice are all art masterpieces. The Porquerolles archipelago boast some of the finest islands and beaches of the Mediterranean. Grasse is the place where they invented perfume and Nouvelle Cuisine. Cap Ferrat and Villefranche are still the top of the posh. Cannes is the Capital of decent cinema. Montecarlo.... well... I mean... I would personally avoid it.
