Ports

  • 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.

  • Porto Santo Stefano
    Porto Santo Stefano

    Porto Santo Stefano is a seaport 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 Ercole 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. Guests may want to bike ride to Porto Ercole or for the really energetic to the old convent on top of the mountain which has spectacular views of the coast line as well as Giglio and Gianutri. 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).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Cannes
    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.

  • Cassis
    Cassis

    Cassis is a small port situated east of Marseille in the administrative department of the Bouches-du-Rhone in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region in southern France. It is a very popular tourist destination and is famous for its steep cliffs (falaises) and the sheltered limestone inlets called calanques. The wines of Cassis are white and rose, and not to be confused with creme de cassis, a specialty of Burgundy which takes its name from blackcurrants (cassis), not the village here. SeaDream anchors in the bay and offer a land adventure to the impressive Aix en Provence. Other options are taking a local boat to the calanques, hiking along the coast, visiting some of the local vineyards, water sports, mountain biking or simply relaxing in a Balinese bed on the yacht.

  • Roses, Costa Brava
    Roses, Costa Brava

    Roses (or Rosas in Spanish) is a coastal city and has the largest fishing fleet of the Costa Brava. Even with so many fishermen, this town in Girona thrives on tourism. The town is popular for its splendid beaches and loved for its unique location as it is the only beach resort facing west. This allows tourists and locals alike get to enjoy fantastic sunsets across the Gulf of Roses. SeaDream anchors just of the marina and may offer guests water sports activities.

  • Barcelona
    Barcelona

    Barcelona, a Unesco Awarded City, is the second largest in Spain. It was the 12th-most-visited city in the world, and 4th most visited in Europe after London, Paris, and Rome. Especially remarkable is the work of architect Antoni Gaudi, which can be seen throughout the city.

  • Porto Santo Stefano - Wine Estate and Wine Tasting

    Description

    Discover the prestigious wines of the Maremma region on this Yachting Land Adventure to a famous wine estate in Tuscany.

    Board a vehicle and drive through the Maremma landscape to reach the famous wine resort, Val Delle Rose Winery which is nestled between the Maremma hills and the plains of the Tuscan coastline. There is a garden vineyard and boutique Cantina producing beautifully crafted wines, made with passion and authenticity with the expertise of their winemaker.

    Since 1893, the Cecchi family and brand has been synonymous with viticulture, both in Italy and worldwide. Cecchi considers protecting the environment a duty for those who work in the agricultural field. Territories are to be considered a heritage that must be defended and respected. Thus, for this winery, the word “sustainability” takes on a true and hard-working character, driven by two well-defined policies: on one hand, the safeguard and improvement of the company, agricultural and environmental heritage; on the other hand, the reclamation and employment of new technologies that, moreover, allow the minimization of both energy consumption and natural resources necessary during production. At the time of its acquisition, Val delle Rose consisted of 25 hectares under vines. The Family carried out a small farming revolution, which went not only to improve the agricultural techniques but also the wine-ageing ones. With the enormous potential of the terroir, the company extended the land under vines up to about 100 hectares. Here, the star varietal is Sangiovese, and you will have the opportunity of tasting this and other vintages with nibbles from this famous wine resort on your Yachting Land Adventure.

Perched on a wooded hill above the vineyards, this remarkable stronghold, formerly owned by the Lords of Les Baux, has well-preserved ramparts, a carefully restored 12 C church, a castle dating back in part to the 11th century.

    Entering by two fortified gates “Le Portail” and “ Le Portalet ”, you will start the visit walking around the narrow streets up to the Castle, now home to the town hall. See the St. Sauveur church with its proud displayed windows, before joining the “Trou de Madame ” from where you will enjoy an expansive view inland towards St Baume and Paul Ricard Circuit. Time at leisure will be given to explore the arts and craft workshops –painting, pottery, hollow-ware and lovely small stores selling soaps and fragrances.
    Afterwards, you will be invited for a visit to a typical “Miellerie”, a honey factory.

    Honey collection is an ancient activity. Humans began hunting for honey more than 8,000 years ago. The oldest known honey remains were found in the country of Georgia. Archaeologists found honey remains on the inner surface of clay vessels unearthed in an ancient tomb and in ancient Greece. You will learn all about the honey from the past, to current production techniques and consumption. Also, enjoy a honey tasting, before driving back to Cassis and your SeaDream yacht.

  • Roses, Costa Brava - Cadaqués - The Pearl of Costa Brava & Wine Cellar

    Description

    Spain's easternmost town, Cadaqués, still has the whitewashed charm that transformed this fishing village into an international artists' haunt in the early 20th century. For most of “cadaquesencs”, the local people, this is a very special place and when travelers visit, they can only agree. Cadaqués is a beautiful small village and you will start your day with a lovely walking tour of the town where after you have some time explore on your own.

    Then you will continue to Martin Faixó which is a family-run winery surrounded by the sea, located at an altitude of 300 m on Cadaqués Pass, in Cap de Creus Natural Park. The slate soil produces a yield of 35 hl/ha. The Tramontane North wind has beneficial effects on the health of the vines.

  • Roses, Costa Brava - Gorgeous Girona

    Description

    The provincial capital of Girona, one of the most historical places in Spain, is located about 45 miles from Roses. Although now quite a large city, it has retained most of its compact old medieval quarter virtually intact, including the historic fortifications - and the former Jewish Quarter. After your coach arrives from Roses, your local guide will take you into the Jewish Quarter where you will discover the Arab Baths with their beautiful arches. In spite of the name, the construction of the baths is a western Romanesque style. Visit the Bonastruch Ca Porta Museum on the site of the old synagogue, as well as the medieval walls of the city and the remains of the Gironella Tower, which was destroyed by Napoleon during his retreat in 1814. You can’t miss seeing the outside of the great Catalonian Romanesque Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants. There will be some free time to explore, browse the shops, grab a bite to eat or drink on your own before boarding the bus and returning to Roses and your SeaDream yacht.
