Day 1.  Flight Kiev - Pisa / Rome. Transfer Pisa / Rome - Piombino. In the evening - check-in on the yacht, safety training, purchase of products, familiarity with the equipment of the yacht and with each other 🙂 Overnight in Piombino.


Day 2. Piombino – Portoferaio. Go to the Elba. In the morning our yacht goes to the sea and goes to the famous island of Elba. A short sea crossing will help you get used to the boat and get used to the sea wave. Many of the islands in the Tuscan archipelago are a reserve. Therefore, our sea crossings are often accompanied by dolphins, rare sea birds and even ... sperm whales. The fountain of the sperm whale is not to be confused with anything, and autumn is the most favorable time to meet these animals. After lunch, we arrive at the main port of the island of Elba - Portoferraio.

We moor directly on the old quay. Portoferraio - a cozy, beautiful town, as in the picture: surrounded by a ramparts historical center, narrow streets, a lighthouse, Roman ruins - there is where to take a walk and what to see.

We advise you to look at Napoleon's winter palace located in Portoferraio. It was here that the emperor "sat" during the exile to Elba, nurturing plans to return to France.

In the evening, you can stroll along the waterfront, sit in restaurants and so on.

Sea crossing – 14miles, 3 h.

Day 3. Going to Corsica. Early in the morning we leave in the direction of Corsica. We are waiting for a fairly long maritime transition - 45 miles, spend the whole day at sea. Towards evening we arrive in the central city of Corsica island town of Bastia.


Bastia is a very cozy city, there is an ancient fortress, an authentic ancient port, many quiet streets and restaurants and, of course, the famous monument to Bonaparte. We have supper, we walk on an evening city, we have a rest.

Sea crossing – 45 miles, 9 h.


Day 4. Let's explore Corsica. On this day, we remain on the hard land of Corsica, resting from the sea. In your spare time you can rent a car and travel along the sea coast to the south, in Bonifacio, which is considered the most beautiful and authentic city of Corsica.


An alternative option is a quiet rest on one of the many beaches with clear clear water.

Day 5. Crossing to the Elbe. Having rested from the sea, we again make a long transition this time to the southern coast of Elba Island, known for its beaches and beautiful bays.

Sea crossing – 40 miles, 8 h.

Day 6. Go along the Elbe coast, relax

On the fifth day, we are waiting for a small crossing along the southern coast of the Elbe, to one of the most beautiful ports of the Tuscan archipelago - Porto Azzuro. We rest during the transition: we make stops, go into the coves, swim. We hurry up to get to Porto Azzuro.

Entrance to the bay is guarded by two majestic fortresses, and in the bay itself we will find many restaurants and cozy cafes.

Sea crossing – 15 miles, 3 h.
