10 days£3415
Group Trip

Join a luxury gay cruise and sail the Mediterranean on board the Royal Clipper, the only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship. It’s a suitably glamorous vessel to be sailing in as we explore the most glamorous places in the Mediterranean. We’ll depart from Cannes, one of France’s most attractive cities.

On our travels, we’ll visit Etruscan ruins in Lerici and also Elba, the former home of Napoleon when he was in exile (before his dastardly escape). We’ll also visit Portoferraio, stunning beaches in Corsica and super glamorous Monte Carlo.

Group Trip Breakdown


Day 1: Cannes

Transfer from Nice airport to your Cannes hotel. Explore the city at your own pace.


Day 2: Cannes

Today we’ll set out on a sightseeing tour of the city. You’ll see why Cannes is hailed as one of France’s most aesthetically pleasing cities.


Day 3: Cannes

Cannes was made popular by the British nobility. Tired of their dreary castles and long English winters, they made sunny Cannes the place to be. Every year the international jet set flock to the city for the Cannes Film Festival.


Day 4: Lerici, Italy

Lerici is another town made famous by the English, in this case the romantic poets Lord Byron and Percy Shelly. Lord Byron, who was lame, once swam to Bay of Portovenere. Feel free to give it a try while you’re in town!


Day 5: Portoferraio (Elba), Italy

Portoferraio was once the prison of exiled emperor Napoleon. He almost succeeded in conquering the world but didn’t quite make it – certainly deserves an A+ for effort. He spent 300 days gazing over the remains of the Etruscan civilisation. He eventually escaped and almost succeeded in conquering the world – again.


Day 6: Palombaggia / Bonifacio, Corsica, France

We’ll visit one of the best beaches in Europe, Palombaggia. Then, we’ll head to the harbour of Bonifacio and visit the ancient citadel town.


Day 7: Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

Alghero is a stunning medieval city in Sardinia. You’ll find many great bars and restaurants in its historic centre. Curiously, a medieval Catalan dialect is still spoken here even though the Iberian presence ended three hundred years ago.


Day 8: Ajaccio, Corsica, France

The white sand beaches of Porticcio are well worth exploring. Over in Ajaccio, we’ll catch another glimpse of Napoleon – he was born here in 1769. You can visit his childhood home.


Day 9: Monte Carlo, Monaco

Monte Carlo is the playground of royalty, movie stars and even the home Shirley Bassey. In other words, it’s a byword for glamour and money.


Day 10: Departure

We’ll return to Cannes where you’ll catch your outbound flight.
