Program Overview

Featured This Voyage


Ports

  • 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.

  • 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 Cervo Marina, Sardinia

    Porto Cervo is an Italian seaside resort in northern Sardinia in an area called the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast). SeaDream is most likely the only commercial vessel allowed to call to this amazing port of call. There have been several restrictions navigating and calling to ports within the protected national park zone. The best solution rather than anchoring was to get permission to dock next to the other super yachts “stern to” (backing into the pier using the marina platform to access to the port). The village is the main centre of the Costa Smeralda. It was created by Prince Karim Aga Khan and various other investors. The village houses some amazing boutiques, a newsagent, bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Guests like to visit incredible properties such as Cala di Volpe, Patrizza, Romazzino as well as the Pevero Golf Club for some amazing golf and tennis options. SeaDream’s Land adventure takes guests to all the sights of the Costa Smeralda.

  • Sorrento

    Sorrento is a small town in Campania just south of Naples in southern Italy. It is a highly popular tourist destination which can be reached easily from Naples and Pompeii, as it lies at the south-eastern end of the Circumvesuviana rail line. The town overlooks the Bay of Naples and is considered the key place of the Sorrentine Peninsula. It allows many viewpoints including Naples, Vesuvius and the Isle of Capri and Ischia. The most popular attraction from here and the absolute “must do” would be to visit the Unesco Heritage Site of Pompeii. Other Land Adventure options include a “hands on” cooking class at the Villa Ida and by special request, you can take a speed boat around the peninsula to Nerano to dine at the Quattro Passi. SeaDream provides a shuttle service to transfer guests from the marina to Piazza Tasso (Main square), although several also take the more active route – the stairs. There’s loads of sites and shopping opportunities here as well as great restaurants, cafes and pizzerias. Perhaps we even have a surprise activity for you as well?

  • Amalfi

    Amalfi is a picturesque town in the province of Salerno, in the Campania region of Italy. With its incredible views, it is the central town that makes up the very famous and UNESCO awarded Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana). Amalfi sports some impressive medieval architecture including; its cathedral of Sant'Andrea (St. Andrew), the church tower, the convent of the Cappuccini, founded by the Amalfitan Cardinal Pietro Capuano. They richly represent the artistic movement prevailing in Southern Italy. From Amalfi, we have created two exciting land adventures for you. One to Scenic Ravello and the other to Fascinating Pompeii. You may also choose to play from the yacht’s marina (Permission and conditions pending) or go on a very scenic hike with one of the officers.

  • Positano

    Positano is one of the most picturesque villages along the UNESCO awarded Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana), in Campania, Italy. The town itself is perched on an enclave on the face of a hill and winds down towards the sea. This incredible setting has been enjoyed by writers, movie stars and millions of tourist each year. John Steinbeck visited in the 50's and stated “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” The movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" and several others have been shot on location here. Besides the incredibly romantic atmosphere, it offers excellent shopping, beautiful beaches, hiking trails and a few world recognized and award winning hotels such as Le Sirenuse and Il San Pietro di Positano amongst others. As large coaches cannot navigate down to the pier, only private arrangements are available here. You can book a very nice sedan or van to take you to the neighboring villages or even to Pompeii. As SeaDream anchors just of the pier, you may have the opportunity to access the yachts marina and water toys (conditions and local approval permitting).

  • Taormina (Etna) Sicily

    SeaDream yachts anchor in the bay of Giardini Naxos and offer fantastic views of recently awarded UNESCO Natural Site of Mt. Etna (2013) as well as Taormina perched on the cliffside. Shuttle bus service has been arranged to transport guests from Giardini Naxos to the entrance gate of Taormina town. For the SeaDream active guests, office led hikes and bike rides could also transport you to Taormina town or continue up to Castelmola which provides amazing views of the surrounding areas. Perhaps the “must do” adventure here would be to ascend Mt. Etna with your fellow SeaDreamers. Kindly check the Land Adventure tab for the specifics. Other options include an incredible and authentic feast at the Godfather Villa. This “SeaDream Exclusive” Land Adventure requires a high minimum to operate, but it’s worth every penny! As we are anchored and if conditions allow, we will offer water sports both in the morning and in the afternoon. Multo Bene!

  • Syracuse, Sicily

    Syracuse, (Siracusa) is a historic city in southern Italy. The city is famous for its rich Greek and Roman history, culture, amphitheaters, architecture, and as the birthplace of Archimedes. This 2,700 year-old city played a key role in ancient times, when it was one of the major powers of the Mediterranean world. It was once described by Cicero as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all." Syracuse is located in the south-east corner of the island of Sicily, right by the Gulf of Syracuse next to the Ionian Sea. SeaDream has created two very attractive land adventures that can be viewed by clicking on the Land Adventures tab. One of them includes the Unesco awarded Baroque city of Noto. The other includes a very interesting visit to the Catacombs of San Giovanni as well as a hands on visit to an active wine farm belonging to Baron Pietro Beneventano del Bosco. Here you will sample typical homemade Sicilian specialties as well as the tasting of four wines; a white, a red, a rose and a dessert wine.

  • Mgarr Harbour, Gozo

  • Valletta

    Valletta, The Fortress City, is Malta's capital city: a living, working city, the administrative and commercial heart of the Islands. Valletta is named after its founder, the respected Grand Master of the Order of St. John, Jean Parisot de la Valette. The magnificent fortress city grew on the arid rock of Mount Sceberras peninsula, which rises steeply from two deep harbours, Marsamxett and Grand Harbour. Ottoman forces numbering 40,000 laid siege to the island from May to September 1565, without success. The heavily outnumbered army of 700 knights and around 8000 Maltese regular troops took refuge in the fortified town on the Grand Harbour. Started in 1566, the city of Valletta was completed, with its impressive bastions, forts, and cathedral, in the astonishingly short time of 15 years. The city is busy by day, yet retains a timeless atmosphere. The grid of narrow streets boasts some of Europe's finest art works, churches and palaces. Walking around Valletta you'll come across an intriguing historical site around every corner: votive statues, niches, fountains and coats of arms high up on parapets. Narrow side streets are full of tiny quaint shops and cafes, while Valletta's main streets are lined with larger international branded shops for fashion, music, jewelry and much more.

  • Bonifacio, Corsica - The Most Corsican of Villages - Sartene

    Description

    Discover Sartene, the ultimate Corsican town; full of charm with a history of vendettas, pirate attacks and battles you will explore the alleyways and historic buildings known as the most Corsican of all Corsican villages

    Depart the pier in Bonifacio for an approximately 75-minute drive to the Corsican town of Sartene, complete with a striking granite fortress overlooking the beautiful valley of the Rizzanese. En route, take in superb views of the deep blue sea, majestic mountains, red granite rocks and Bonafacio's dramatic cliffs. Continue towards the island's interior and ascend the road leading up to the Lion de Roccapina, a naturally carved rock with ruins on top that looks like a lion wearing a crown whilst laying down. Proceed past small countryside villages highlighted by tall, austere granite houses and vast expanses of vividly colored macchia bushes.

    Built on a promontory, the town of Sartène, has many houses built directly into the rocks. Sartène has been the scene of vendettas, pirate attacks and battles against Genoese occupiers during the Middle Ages, and therefore is known as the 'most Corsican of Corsican towns'. Upon arrival, visit the Church of St. Maria, which houses the hood, chain and cross used in the Good Friday Procession by one of the local sinners. Afterward, take a guided stroll through the narrow, paved streets with numerous balconies, steep steps, arcades and private passageways.
    Then proceed to a local cafe to have a refreshment followed by some free time to explore the town and browse the shops at your leisure. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 75-minute drive back to the pier with your waiting SeaDream yacht.

    Notes

    Proper attire is required to enter the cathedral; shorts and bare shoulders are not permitted. On Sunday mornings, church holidays and during weddings, tour groups are not allowed inside churches during services. Guests may have a chance to visit the church independently. The tour sequence may vary. Corsican roads are winding, therefore this tour is not recommended for people suffering from vertigo or car sickness.

A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures, and some may have limited capacity. All adventures in the SeaDream Yachting Land Adventures program are subject to change.

  • Bonifacio, Corsica - Zodiac Escape to Lavezzi Island

    Description

    Discover the dramatic coastline of Bonifacio and marine reserve of Lavezzi Island on this private zodiac excursion.

    From the pier, board your private zodiac boat for an unforgettable cruise along the coastline of Bonifacio. Discover the dramatic sight of the citadel and the upper town from sea level. Observe the best perspective of Bonifacio’s buildings overhanging the magnificent chalky cliffs which look like they are about to topple into the sea.

    This exploration starts at the marine caves which are home to numerous birds including falcons, puffins, and swifts. Upon exiting the harbor via the inlet, you will witness the ramparts which encircle the old city. After passing the limestone cliffs, you will reach the Sdragonatu Marine Cave (dragon’s cave) to take in its gloriously colored seabed with a single huge chamber and a hole in the roof shaped like a map of Corsica.

    Continue to the Lavezzi Islands which make up one of Corsica’s two marine reserves and offers sanctuary to many wildlife and plants species. These uninhabited granite islands are located seven miles south-east of Bonifacio, they are seemingly adrift on a turquoise-emerald sea, the color of which varies with the skies overhead. This island houses also numerous paths to discover different islets and coves. There are several rare species of wildflowers, including the yellow horned poppy and white sea daffodil, and Lavezzi Island was declared a nature reserve in 1982. There will be time to swim and snorkel at one of its beautiful shell or sandy beaches. Or simply take in the superb views of the azure-colored sea while relaxing on the island. On the return, you will pass Cavallo Island and Pointe de Sperone before cruising along the calanque and Bonifacio cliffs to your waiting SeaDream yacht at the marina.

    Notes

    This tour is dependent upon weather conditions to operate. It is offered as a replacement when the jet ski can not operate and is not available on all calls to Bonifacio.

The entrance into the Sdragonatu Cave is subject to good weather conditions with a calm sea.

A flourishing civilization buried for 1,700 years, Pompeii is possibly the most famous excavation site in the world. Brought to life by your guide, now you can see how citizens of the greatest empire of the world lived and loved, worked and played, ate and drank—and met their fateful death.

  • Amalfi - Uncover Ancient Pompeii "ADDITIONAL SPACE"

    Description

    **Due to the popularity of this Yachting Land Adventure, additional space for prebooking has been added on this voyage. **

    Discover the ancient ruins of Pompeii and find out how the Ancient Romans lived and worked this informative guided tour. A flourishing civilization buried for 1,700 years, Pompeii is possibly the most famous excavation site in the world. Brought to life by your guide, now you can see how citizens of the greatest empire of the world lived and loved, worked and played, ate and drank—and met their fateful death.

    Your journey begins as you travel from Amalfi through mountain roads toward Pompeii while admiring Mount Vesuvius, the still-active historic volcano located 15 miles southeast of Naples. Entering Pompeii by foot at the Sea Gate you are soon in the Agorà, surrounded by temples, porticoes, and law courts.

    20,000 people lived in this provincial town, of whom 2,000 perished in the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Twenty feet of ashes and pumice stone covered Pompeii, much of which has been removed during the last 200 years to reveal details of everyday life. The mosaic floors and the brilliant frescoes that so delighted the Pompeians shine forth in all their undiminished glory. Explore baths and theaters, the wrestling ground, and luxurious villas and gardens, complete with plaster casts of the locals at the moment of Vesuvius’s eruption. At the end of your experience, reboard your coach for the drive back to Amalfi where you are welcomed back on board your yacht.

    Notes

    There is free time at the end of this excursion to have a quick snack at Pompeii. Due to possible traffic delays, your return to the yacht may be after lunch; however, there is 24-hour meal service at the bar. After the Global Pandemic and tourism shutdown, we are experiencing higher than normal tourists in these popular destinations during the peak season (June, July, and August).
