Approximately 4 hours
Depart from Golfo Aranci's pier by comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach for a panoramic drive to Cala di Volpe and Porto Cervo. Admire nature's craftsmanship along the way -- landscapes completely unadulterated by the hand of man. In 1962, a small group of international financiers, headed by Prince Karim Aga Khan, founded the Emerald Coast Consortium. Its territory covers more than 50 miles of coastline, with a vast well-watered hinterland of rolling granite hills covered in Mediterranean maquis and woods of wild olive trees. Along the coast, a number of resorts have been created and developed, and now enjoy international renown.
Porto Cervo, which you'll visit today, was built new from the ground up and has become the heart of the Emerald Coast. In the city center, you can enjoy a walk along the famous promenade and shopping district frequented by stars of the silver screen. Extending from the small square to the Sottopiazza are numerous streets with houses, windows, and balconies built in the typical style of the Emerald Coast.
You'll continue to Baja Sardinia, located on a large bay that boasts crystal clear water and a fine sandy beach -- just a stone's throw away from Porto Cervo. This popular spot faces panoramic vistas of the island of Caprera and the Maddalena Archipelago.
Enjoy some free time here to explore at your leisure before re-boarding the coach for your return to the ship.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
