Program Overview


Ports

  • Athens (Piraeus)
    Athens (Piraeus)

    Piraeus, roughly translating to “the place over the passage”, is an important Greek port located within the Athens agglomeration, in the Attica Basin. It is 12 kilometers from the municipality of Athens, considered the fourth largest and is the third most populous amongst all the municipalities of Greece. Now a peninsula, Piraeus, originally a rocky island, was developed in early 5th Century B.C. when it was initially designated as Athens’ import and transit trade port. It is the largest marine-based shipping center of Greece, one of the largest ports in Europe, and considered the second largest passenger port in the world. Inhabited since the 26th Century, it wasn’t until the 6th Century B.C. that Piraeus began catching attention. The land of Piraeus was essentially impassable, flooded by the sea most of the year until centuries passed and the flooding ceased. By the 5th Century B.C. it became a navy base for the Athenian fleet for the natural harbors and the strategic potential they carried. Athenian general and politician Themistocles fortified Piraeus’ three harbors Kantharos, Zea and Munichia, created ship houses and completed his walls in 471 B.C., which led to the port becoming a great military and commercial harbor. There are many archaeological sites, points of interest and entertainment available in Piraeus. Most famous for its tavernas and cuisine, several popular events take place in Piraeus, such as the Ecocinema International Film Festival, the Maritime Festival, the Piraeus Rock Wave Festival and the Three Kings’ Way Festival. There are also many theaters, including the Municipal Theater, the open air Veakeio Theater, and the Menandreio Theater. Museums in Piraeus include the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, the Merchant Shipping History Institute Exhibition, the Panos Aravantinos Decor Museum, the Georgios Averof Museum Ship and the Museum of Electric Railways. Be sure to catch the panoramic views available from the hill of Kastella, overlooking Athens and the Saronic Gulf!

  • Hydra
    Hydra

    There is one main town on Hydra, known simply as "Hydra port". It consists of a crescent-shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals (Hydriots). Steep stone streets lead up and outwards from the harbor area. The charm of Hydra town certainly lies in her rich history, beautiful port and waterfront unspoiled by motorized vehicles. The island offers a rugged charm and some spectacular scenes and makes the perfect place for some self-exploration.

  • Pylos, Navarino Bay
    Pylos, Navarino Bay

    Nestled in the Ionian Sea’s Bay of Navarino, Pylos is home to one of the best-preserved Mycenaean palaces in Greece, known as the great Palace of Nestor described in the Homeric poems.

  • At Sea

  • Taormina (Etna) Sicily
    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 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. As we are anchored and if conditions allow, we will offer water sports both in the morning and in the afternoon.

  • Lipari, Sicily
    Lipari, Sicily

    Lipari is one of seven islands of the Aeolian Island group in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the northern coast of Sicily. The charming seaside town boasts a fortified castello and the impressive Aeolian Archaeological Museum. For centuries the world center for pumice production, Lipari has the finest white pumice dust on its beaches. The water off Spiaggia Bianca (White Beach) is as clear as the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, and perfect for exploring with SeaDream’s signature Marina platform. There are also several black sand beaches on the island worthy of exploration. On every voyage that calls on Lipari, enjoy a lovely scenic sailing past impressive Mt. Stromboli, one of the four active volcanoes in Italy.

  • Capri
    Capri

    Capri may very well be the most popular island on the planet. It is a beautiful Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Bay of Naples. Capri town is the island’s main population center. The island has two harbors, Marina Piccola and Marina Grande (the main port of the island). The separate village of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west. From there, visitors can continue up to the highest point Mt. Solero. Besides some simply amazing shopping boutiques, the island has so much to offer including the famous Grotta Azzurra, Villa Jovis, Giardini di Augusto, Certosa di San Giacomo, Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe and the uniquely shaped Faraglioni rocks. SeaDream has put together most of the sights into one adventure called “Discovering the Island of Love” Kindly check the Land Adventures tab for more information. There’s also some great hikes available on the island, check with the activities team on board for details.

  • Amalfi
    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.

  • Ponza
    Ponza

    Ponza is a truly delightful island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, is part of the Pontine Island group and located in the region of Lazio. The island is uniquely shaped like a crescent moon. Its glistening blue coastline is varied and dramatic with several rocky coves and sandy beaches as well as numerous grottos, caves and craggy cliffs. The island has crystal clear waters and is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. You may want to explore some of the magnificent beaches or ask the officers to lead a nice bike ride across the island. Depending on the sea conditions and approval from the local authorities, we plan on offering full water sports anchored off this Italian gem.

  • Porto Cervo, Sardinia
    Porto Cervo, 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pylos, Navarino Bay - Nestor’s Palace and Methoni Fortress

    Description

    Visit the Ancient Palace of King Nestor and enjoy a stroll around the impressive ruins of Methoni Castle.

    The tour begins with a visit of the ruins of King Nestor's Palace. Here you will be able to admire the room where the queen took her bath as well as the remains of what must have been a magnificent throne room with a huge hearth in its middle. Since the majority of the roofs and walls were constructed out of wood and stone, today only the stone remains. Even so, the palace remains an impressive example of ancient Greek antiquity.

    After visiting Nestor’s Palace, proceed by coach to the Methoni village. Methoni has been identified as the city Pedasus, that Homer mentions under the name "ampeloessa" (of vine leaves), as the last of the seven "evnaiomena ptoliethra", that Agamemnon offers Achilles in order to subdue his rage. Along with the rest of Messenia, the town gained its independence from the Spartans in 369 BC. During the 4th century BC, Methoni was elaborately fortified and continued to remain autonomous well into the Imperial Roman era, when it enjoyed the favor of some emperors. During the Byzantine years it continued to remain a remarkable harbor and one of the most important cities of the Peloponnese, seat of a bishopric. Nowadays the walls of the fortress, even though in ruins, continue to be impressive. The castle of Methoni occupies the entire area of the cape and the southwestern coast to the small islet that has also been fortified with an octagonal tower and is protected by the sea on three sides. A deep moat separates the castle from the land and access was by a wooden bridge. The Venetians built on the ancient battlements and added on and repaired it during both periods that they occupied the castle. After a guided tour, you depart Methoni for your return drive back to the pier and your SeaDream yacht.

Continuing, you will arrive at perhaps the most amazing beach of Peloponnese, Voidokilia beach. This beautiful natural beach will be a stop to take a quick swim. Enjoy the sandy beach and its turquoise water, with a bay that is shaped like the Greek alphabet letter Omega “Ω”.

    This excursion also bikes by Romanos Ancient Tombs, also known as “tholoi”, two Bronze Age burial structures (17th - 13th century BC) characterized by the superposition of successively smaller rings of hewn stones. Be sure to bring your camera for photo stops of great images before returning to Gialova village for your return drive to Pylos pier and the SeaDream yacht.

  • Amalfi - NAT GEO DAY TOUR: A Deep Dive into Ancient Roman Life: Oplontis and Pompeii

    Description

    Immerse yourself in the leisure life of the ancient Roman elite as you journey through frescoed villas and the sprawling ruins of Pompeii. Marvel at still-standing UNESCO-protected forums, theaters, baths, restaurants and more! You’ll also learn about lesser-known sites, such as Casa della Regina Carolina, where researchers are studying the daily domestic activities of the Roman people.

    Begin your journey, by boat, to the small port city of Torre Annunziata, where you’ll leave bustling roads and concrete facades behind as you descend below street level to ancient Oplontis. As a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, the area and its two sprawling villas boast some of the best-preserved wall paintings of the Roman period.

    Your guide—an expert archeologist—will offer historical, cultural, and architectural context for the painted wonders around you. Marvel at tiled mosaics and floor-to-ceiling frescos finished in the Pompeiian style with deep azure blues, bright oranges, and sunny golds. As you explore recently reconstructed halls and columned atriums, you’ll discover three-dimensional painted landscapes next to still-life scenes rendered by artists thousands of years ago.

    Continue a short distance away to the foothills of Mt. Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompeii, an ancient city preserved by volcanic eruption. After a quick lunch featuring a recreated Roman meal, stroll down cobblestone streets to the Forum. Here, Romans once discussed politics, sold goods, and gathered for worship. Follow ancient paths to grand spaces like the House of the Faun with its rich mosaics and green gardens. Sit in the arena of the Theater and study the colossal columns of the Basilica. You’ll also visit areas of everyday life like the baths, taverns and the Thermopolium, where Romans brought their families for quick bites.

    On your final stop within these winding ruins, you’ll find Casa della Regina Carolina, one of the ancient city’s largest homes located in an elite neighborhood near the Forum.

  • Amalfi - Uncover Ancient Pompeii

    Description

    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.

  • 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. In 2023 Lavezzi island became a national protected site and stopping on the island cannot be guaranteed, this is in order to limit tourism and preserve the island. 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.
