Ports

  • Nice
    Nice

    Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the second largest on the Mediterranean coast. The city's famous seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais ('the Walkway of the English') owes its name to the earliest settlers to this seaside resort. For over a quarter century, the picturesque Nicean surroundings have attracted not only those in search of relaxation but also those seeking inspiration. SeaDream docks in the small port and offers several land adventure options as well as private arrangements and transfers.

  • Monte Carlo
    Monte Carlo

    The Principality of Monaco is an independent sovereign state composed of four quarters Fontvieille (the newest), Monaco-Ville (the oldest), La Condamine, and Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo is widely known for its casino as well as the Monaco Grand Prix. Monte Carlo is one of Europe's leading tourist destinations as it simply has so much to offer. Some of the sights include the Cathédrale Paroisse, Eglise Sainte Dévôte, Jardin Exotique et Grottes de l'Observatoire, Monaco Top Cars Collection, Musée Océanographique and of course the Palace. SeaDream calls to Monte Carlo for embarkation and on certain voyages as a port of call typically docking along the new pier. There are a few occasions where the yacht may anchor offering tender service to the pier downtown or at Fontvieille. Kindly check the Land Adventures tab to see all of the options including transfers and private arrangements.

  • Sanremo
    Sanremo

    The stunning seaside town of Sanremo, eloquently named the Riviera dei Fiori or “Coast of Flowers,” is a little-known gem of the Italian Riviera. Often described as Italy’s mirror image of nearby Monte Carlo, Sanremo is made up of the same glamorous lifestyle as her neighbor. Admire views out to sea and over the harbor, filled with gleaming yachts. Discover the Old Quarter of La Pigna, set on a hill and host to a labyrinth of narrow, cobblestone streets and alleyways, perfect for strolling and sampling focaccia and a glass of local wine. Lounge on sunny, secluded beaches. Marvel at the elegant Art Nouveau design of the the Casino Municipale, the oldest in Italy.

  • Portofino
    Portofino

    The picturesque fishing village of Portofino can be found along the Italian Riviera, and is one of the most popular resort getaways in all of Italy. Portofino has been a staple of tourism in Italy since the 19th century, officially replacing fishing as its chief industry in 1950. Portofino is twinned with Kinsale, Ireland, and Palma (de Mallorca), Spain. Roman philosopher and military commander Pliny the Elder declared that Portofino was founded by the Romans, and with the high concentration of dolphins found in the Tigullian Gulf, it was named the “Port of the Dolphin” - Portus Delphini. Portofino was primarily a member of the Republic of Genoa in early days, and never provided more than a resting area for the merchant navy due to its naturally cramped harbor. The Republic of Florence purchased Portofino in 1409 from French King Charles VI, yet returned when the Florentines were ousted. Portofino became a part of the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1815, and during Risorgimento, it became a member of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. Aristocratic visitors from Northern Europe began visiting the town in the 19th century, leading to eventual vacation homes and celebrities appearing in Portofino. Portofino is naturally beautiful port with colorful, iconic architecture that was even replicated as a hotel resort at the Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando. The Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan also created a seaside town based on Portofino. Tourists like to visit the museum Castello Brown, which provides a great view of the town, as well as the churches of St. Martin, Oratorio di Nostra Signora Assunta, and St. George - the latter containing some relics of saints. When visiting Portofino, be sure to take a guided dive to the Portofino Marine Park, as well as take a glimpse at the recently restored famous underwater statue, the Christ of the Abyss.

  • Portovenere (Cinque Terre)
    Portovenere (Cinque Terre)

    One word – Incredible! Cinque Terre, Portovenere and the three Island of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. They have been selected for being distinguished examples of the ways in which man has been able to modify and transform the environment without altering the beauty of the original natural landscape. Most of our valued guests will participate in the ever popular “Cinque Terre: Don’t go Home Without It” Land Adventure. Others may enjoy the guided village walk or go hiking on several trails leading down the coast. Most guests will make a purchase of the amazing local pesto and we are fairly certain our Executive Chef will do the same. Be prepared for an incredible dinner al fresco this evening!

  • Portoferraio, Elba
    Portoferraio, Elba

    The name Portoferraio, meaning “Iron Port” in Italian, comes from the iron mills that prospered the small town during the 19th century. Due to Napoleon’s exile to Elba in 1814, the entire island enjoyed an age of glory and soon blossomed into a melting pot of different cultures. There are several memories of the past worthy of exploration—from the archaeological findings in Portoferraio’s museums to the impressive fortresses and military constructions such as the Castello del Volterraio and Napoleonic residences. Today Elba’s main attractions include the tranquil beauty of its rugged hills and the crystal-clear blue waters of its bays.

  • Bonifacio, Corsica
    Bonifacio, Corsica

    Bonifacio is one of our favorite arrivals! As we approach, the Captain navigates along the limestone cliffs giving guests a sea view of incredible Bonifacio as well as the great Aragon steps leading to the water’s edge. Shortly after the pilot will embark and the Captain will turn the yacht around and back into this very impressive fjord-like marina. This could be one of our highest rated arrivals as the guests always find it both impressive and awe inspiring.

  • Polto Quatu (Porto Cervo) Sardinia
    Polto Quatu (Porto Cervo) Sardinia

    Porto Cervo is an Italian seaside resort in northern Sardinia. The village is the main centre of the Costa Smeralda, on the gulf of the same name.

  • Rome (Civitavecchia)
    Rome (Civitavecchia)

    Civitavecchia is a major port located in Rome, primarily utilized for maritime transportation of goods, as well as a fishing port. The commune’s name means “ancient town” and is one of the “Motorways of the Sea” in the Mediterranean, functioning as one of the main links between the mainland of Italy and Sardinia. The ancient name of the port was “Centumcellae,” first mentioned in a letter written by Pliny the Younger in 107 A.D., although scholars debate on whether the name was about the number of rooms of the Trajan Villa, or the number of natural creeks on the coast. Civitavecchia is a part of the Lazio Territory, an area which was confirmed to have social groups since pre-historic times, and the modern town was built over a pre-existing settlement of the Etruscan people in 107-108 B.C.E. (who debated to have founded Rome). In the beginning of the 2nd century, the harbor and town of Centumcellae were simultaneously developed by Emperor Trajan in the territory of Aquae Tauri. As the town became more popular for ships traveling westbound, the Thermal Baths were constructed on the hill of Ficoncella. Centumcellae flourished in the Imperial Age, and by 538 A.D., it had become a Byzantine stronghold. In 728 A.D., it became a member of the Papal States. The Saracens raided Centumcellae many times in the 9th century, prompting Pope Leo VII to have a newer and more secure settlement built by 854. The town, then known as Civita Vetula, was under the rule of several lords, and the Popes temporarily lost control during the French Rule in 1798-1815. In 1870 it entered the Kingdom of Italy. Civitavecchia was severely damaged during WWII, destroying many of the ancient monuments including Forte Michelangelo, which would be rebuilt in the 1950’s. Popular points of interest include the Forte Michelangelo, Terme Taurine, and Cattedrale di San Francesco. There is a wealth of Roman and Vatican architecture and tourists are encouraged to visit many of the museums and take the cultural tours available in this important sea port.

  • Monte Carlo - Monaco's Old Town & Eze

    Description

    Discover the amazing village of Eze & Monaco Old Rock on this delightful, guided walking tour including free time to explore on your own.

    As you depart Monaco harbor, the coach will join the Moyenne Corniche, a broad road taking large sweeping curves along the coastline and high cliffs and providing the only access to the amazing village of Eze, a prime example of a Mediterranean hill village.

    Eze clings like an eagle's nest to a rock spike towering 1401 feet over the sea. On foot you will enter the 14th century double gateway with crenellations and a sentry walk leading into the steep narrow streets, sometimes running beneath the carefully restored houses which are now smart boutiques or artists' studios. Streets of this town are closed to the traffic and the town can only be explored by foot: Do not miss the magnificent views of the coast from the top.

    Driving back to Monaco, your coach will park at the foot of the rock of Monaco. From here you will take escalators and elevators which will carry you to the Old City: "The Rock". Up the hill, a guided walking tour through the narrow streets will take you past the Oceanographic Museum, the Cathedral containing the tomb of Princess Grace, & view the exterior of Prince's Palace.

    After a short time at leisure, your motor coach will drive along a small part of the Grand Prix Motor Race circuit before returning to the SeaDream yacht at the pier.

    Notes

    Eze, a medieval village with cobblestone streets and inclines, requires comfortable walking shoes due to numerous steps and slight inclines. Tour sequence may vary to avoid congestion at sites. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity. All adventures in the SeaDream Yachting Land Adventures program are subject to change. Final departures times will be published onboard.

  • Sanremo - Medieval Villages & Wine tasting

    Description

    Discover the beauty of the medieval villages of Dolceacqua while savoring the tastes of the local wine and cuisine.

    Start the day with a drive to the pearl of Dolceacqua, one of the medieval villages of the Nervia valley that is situated along the river of the same name. Its oldest part, overshadowed by Doria's castle, is called Terra and it's situated at the foot of Mount Rebuffao. The newest part of the village, called Borgo, is located on the opposite bank of the river along the road that climbs up the valley. Envision the village bridge, that Claude Monet hand painted in 1884 (defining it as "a jewel of lightness"). Combined with the cluster of houses of Terra and the overwhelming castle, this is one of the most picturesque and famous views of the Ligurian inland.

    After a guided walking tour and some free time to explore the village on your own; proceed to the Terre Bianche Winery. Upon arrival you will visit the cellars and receive a detailed explanation by the winery sommelier of their production method followed by a typical wine tasting. The return drive will take you back to San Remo and your yacht.

    Notes

    The visit at Dolceacqua is entirely on foot as it is a pedestrian area. This tour is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties due to steep inclines at both villages. The drive between San Remo and the DOlceacqua is approximately 1 hour and can vary depending upon the traffic conditions. If the Terre Bianche Winery is not available, then another similar winery will be visited.

    A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity. All adventures in the SeaDream Yachting Land Adventures program are subject to change. Final departure time will be announced on board.
