Ports

  • 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.

  • Saint-Tropez

    Saint-Tropez located on the French Riviera quite simply may be the most famous resort town in Europe. It is a playground for the fashion models, athletes, movie stars, entertainers and other extremely wealthy summertime guests. There’s much to offer in this resort town, shopping, nightlife (Byblos hotel’s Les Caves du Roy nightclub) exceptional beach clubs such as Le Club 55 and Nikki Beach at Pampelonne. Nearby you can explore some of the hill towns and visit the award winning rose wineries. You can also visit neighboring Grimaud and Port Grimaud or just a little further out golf at a few highly rated courses. SeaDream anchors just off the break wall and tenders directly to the pier downtown.

  • Cannes

    Cannes is a well-known destination in the French Riviera that is home to many international festivals celebrating the arts, including Midem, Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, and the global film festival founded in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival. It’s the first European satellite manufacturer, home to the Cannes Mandelieu Space Center, as well as the headquarters for Thales Alenia Space. Originally a small fishing port heavily tied to the Lerins Islands, Cannes is most characterized by luxury, fame, and hosting conferences. Despite becoming a glamorous destination in the Côte d'Azur, the history of Cannes and the Lerins Islands was quite rocky. Cannes was initially named Aegitna, and established by the Ligurian tribe of Oxybii in the 2nd Century B.C. In 410 A.D. two monks settled on Lerina and established a monastery, housing several hundred monks by the 6th century. Out of fear of a Saracen invasion, Le Suquet was procured by the monks in the 11th century, which led to the birth and expansion on what became known as Cannes. Piracy remained a general problem and by the 12th century, the monastery was finally attacked by Saracen pirates, which further fueled insecurity. In 1520, when French King Francis I and Holy Roman Emperor Charles V declared war, Cannes became a passageway for their armies. The situation in Cannes would worsen when the great plague of 1579 annihilated much of the population. In 1635, the Spanish occupied the town for a couple of years before returning to Spain in 1707 for the War of Spanish Succession. It wasn’t until the 18th century where Cannes finally became tranquil and began flourishing in the 19th century. The economy for Cannes is sustained by business fairs, trade, tourism, and aviation. Points of interest include the Iles de Lerins, Marches Forville, Casino Croisette and Rue Meynadier. During the summer, from May to September, Cannes remains sunny for 12 hours a day. Its warm climate allows lemon, orange and olive trees to thrive, as well as fig, almond, oak, lotus and cypress trees. When sailing to Cannes, be sure to visit La Croisette and stroll along the white sandy beaches on this mile-long promenade where the very essence of this town thrives. SeaDream typically anchors so we can offer water sports to our valued guests. You may occasionally see the yacht docked alongside when we are chartered from the festival.

  • 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.

  • Calvi, Corsica

    Calvi located on the northwest coast of Corsica in the Haute-Corse department of France. Some have speculated that Christopher Columbus came from Calvi, which at the time was part of the Genoese Empire. SeaDream has an option to dock in the heart of town or anchor off the marina to offer marina possibilities. As most of the main sites are just a stone throw away, we have arranged a guided walking land adventure. Other options include the popular Villages of Corsica adventure, Golf, mountain biking or relaxing on the beach.

  • 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.

  • Porto Ercole

    Porto Ercole meaning “Port Hercules”, is a town located in the municipality of Monte Argentario, in the Province of Grosseto, Tuscany. It is one the two major towns that form the township, along with Porto Santo Stefano located on the opposite side of this unique peninsula. It’s a very picturesque marina with sidewalk boutiques, cafes and restaurants. This is a great start for the Land Adventure traveling to Montalcino for the tasting of fantastic Brunello in one of the most famous Italian wine regions. Other options include hiking to the few castellos (castles) located on top of the three hills surrounding the port. As well as an adventures bike ride to Porto Santo Stefano or for the really energetic to the convent on top of the mountain. There’s also a great golf course and a fantastic boutique hotel called Il Pelicano where guests can enjoy a nice atmosphere and lunch. As we are anchored, guests will also enjoy water sports from the marina platform (Pending local conditions and approvals).

  • Civitavecchia (Rome)

    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.

  • Porto Ercole - Montalcino & Italy's Celebrated Wines

    Description

    We can highly recommend this beautiful day into one of Italy's most celebrated regions. A delightful day trip away from the yacht in Porto Ercole takes you into the renowned Montalcino, which lies south of the Chianti wine region, and allows you to explore two of the area's most charming towns. Begin with a scenic countryside drive, traveling through delightful tiny medieval villages. One of the most famous and recognized wines in Italy is the Brunello, which is grown around the sleepy town of Montalcino, your first destination. Founded in the first decades of the 10th century, the town has kept its urban structure since the Middle Ages, the time of its greatest expansion and brilliance. A walking tour takes you along its narrow, winding and steep streets, its 14th-century fortress and impressive ramparts with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. See the Palazzo Comunale on the Piazza del Popolo, dating back to the 13th century, and the Duomo San Salvatore. Montalcino's foremost activity is wine producing, as is evident from the number of shops where you can both sample or buy the excellent local wines. Enjoy some free time to browse and have lunch on your own before a visit to a local winery where you will sample the celebrated local wines. And, bring some of your friends; food & wine always tastes better in good company. And leave the driving to us. Continue to the valley to visit Sant' Antimo and admire the impressive, ancient Abbey built by Charlemagne early in the 9th century. Legend says he built it as an expression of thanks to God for sparing him and his troops from a plague that was then raging through Italy. Return to SeaDream in Porto Ercole thereafter.

    Notes

    We suggest that you wear comfortable walking shoes for your walk through the two villages and for the wine tasting; it pays to be sure-footed. The scenic journey from Porto Ercole to Montalcino requires approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes; time to rest up for your walks and to learn more about the region from your excellent local guide. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity. This program is booked onboard only so please make your reservations as soon as possible after boarding to avoid disappointment.

  • Bonifacio, Corsica - The White City by Train & Boat

    Description

    This fun, varied and interesting land adventure is an annual favorite among our guests. It is an excellent opportunity to not only get to know your way around for independent explorations later in the day but your knowledgeable and experienced guide will provide you with a historic insight and context to let you appreciate this beautiful town to its fullest. Begin your visit with a mini-tram ride which will take you up to the oldest part of Bonifacio to provide you with a quick overview of this charming town, passing the Bosco quarter with the St. Francis convent and the strange, but fascinating cemetery dedicated to the mariners with wonderful mausoleums displaying a jumble of architectural styles. On clear day you may also enjoy a panoramic view of Corsica's closest neighbor the Italian island, Sardinia. Then pass the church St Dominique, a rare example of Corsican gothic architecture, built in 1270, most probably by the Templars. Following the orientation by mini-tram, continue your visit of Bonifacio on foot through tiny, narrow streets bordered with high granite houses. Pass the church of St. Marie Majeure, with its mixture of Romanesque and Baroque styles dated from 14th century. Continue through the heart of the historical part of town to the Two Emperors street where Napoleon Bonaparte and Charles V spent a few days, the Place des Armes, the Jardins des Vestiges and then to the old market where there is a viewpoint over the 230 ft. cliffs on top of which Bonifacio has been built! Return to the mini-train for the journey from the Citadel back to the port, where a local boat stands ready to show you the grottos at the base of the white cliffs. Catch a glimpse of the clearness of the water and, weather condition permitting, enter the magnificent Grotto Sdragonatu the largest of the three caves, which resembles the shape of Corsica. Inside you discover the beautiful colors of amethyst, indigo and gold, the clear water and the rock walls with stalactites and arches. Continue your visit, passing St Antoine and St Barthelemy Caves, the staircase of the King of Aragon carved in the limestone cliffs. Looking south you may even have the opportunity to see Corsica's closest neighbor the Italian island Sardinia, located about 14 kms/9 miles, off in the distance. After this boat ride of about 45 minutes, return to the pier and your SeaDream yacht.

    Description

    Board the local boat for an unforgettable trip along the extraordinary coastline of Bonifacio. Discover the dramatic sight of the citadel and the upper town; you will get the best perspective of its buildings overhanging the magnificent chalky cliffs which look like they are about to topple into the sea. Onboard the motor boat you will navigate out through the narrow harbor entrance called the Goulet, passed the deep rocky inlets with their clear aquamarine waters and the magical Grotte du Sdragonatu which is entered through a narrow and low passage. The cave with its gloriously colored seabed is a single huge chamber with a hole in the roof shaped like a map of Corsica Further along; reach the Lavezzi Island from which the whole archipelago gets its name and which is formed by a group of small barren uninhabited granite islands located 10km southeast of Bonifacio.

  • Cannes - Antibes & Absinthe

    Description

    Departing Cannes, you will drive along the seaside coast to Antibes. Founded by the Greek merchants in the 5th century and is one of the oldest cities in France.

Its 16th-century ramparts overlook the Mediterranean Sea and still protect the heart of the Old Town. Your next stop will be just nearby the market, in a 9th-century vaulted cellar, with a Roman well. This shop sells olive oil and other local specialties.

  • Cannes - St. Paul de Vence & Wine Tasting

    Description

    A drive along the highway providing a nice view over the bay of Cannes leads you to St Paul . Your skilled guide will bring you to the old doors in the Old Town of St. Paul and then forward to “La Petite Cave de Saint Paul”. It is truly an exceptional experience that awaits you; trained as a Sommelier in the most prestigious Parisian Palaces, the Hôtel Le George V, Hôtel Le Ritz, but also at the Water Side Inn in England and Dorint Atlantic Palace in Morocco, Frederic Theys travelled the wine roads for 2 years over the 5 continents. Today, this inspired wine expert is delighted to welcome you in an authentic wine cellar, to share with you his passion and an exclusive selection of wines and one of many tastings he proposes every week. La Petite Cave de Saint Paul, 14th century wine cellar, welcomes you to present you its selection of wines from Provence and its Vinothèque, harboring the most important French Wines & Nectars: Bordeaux Grands Crus, Burgundy Finest, Champagne and the Rhône Valley’s best bottles, as well as a wide range of Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados, Eaux-de-Vie, Liqueurs. Already built as a Ligurian settlement over 3 000 years ago, St Paul became a local partner for the Greeks established in Antibes 2 600 years ago. Already in the 10th and 11th centuries, its fortified church and bell tower became strategic watching structures to face threats of Saracen pirates. Later, St Paul stood as the last city on the eastern border of France. Within the context of wars between France and Italy in the 16th century, it was decided to knock down 700 houses of the village and to build the ramparts still standing. As economic development stood still during the following centuries, the village retained its characteristic features. Today in its wholeness, it is classified as part of our national heritage. Strolling in St Paul is a delight for the eyes, as many craftsman shops display their colorful unique collections side by side with art galleries. St Paul stands as a shrine for the lovers of modern art, sculptures are to be admired in the streets, and uphill from the bus parking lot lays the world famous Maeght Foundation. This is also where Chagall was buried “somewhere between the sea and the skies”. After enjoying free time, a short walk brings you where the bus waited for you and you will start your drive back to Cannes and your SeaDream yacht.

Testimonials

This was a wonderful experience thanks largely to the size of the ship and the wonderful staff – they made it memorable. Mr & Mrs Patrick BoyleJohannesburg, South Africa
I hate Commercial Cruises. So I reluctantly signed up for a SeaDream, and after a week on the boat, I could not think of one thing that was not done to perfection. The food was great, the staff was spectacular, and having only 50 couples made this a private yacht cruise. I have signed up for my second cruise, and probably will only Yacht with SeaDream in my future. Pat McGroganFernandina Beach, Florida
