7 Night Cruise sailing return from Rome onboard Wind Surf.
Surrounded by glitterati on the glistening Wind Surf you fit right in; your insider’s experience at Monaco’s legendary Grand Prix, the jewel in the crown of this exceptional cruise. Visit some of the unique small ports — Portofino, Bastia, and Saint Raphael, and iconic cities like Rome and Monte Carlo — strolling famous promenades, shopping elite boutiques, and taking in world-renowned beaches. Then during your overnight in Monte Carlo, enjoy exclusive access to special Windstar private Grand Prix events and two days of world-class Formula One time trials and racing. It’s the ultimate expression of Windstar’s style, and open to only a very limited number of guests.
Highlights of this cruise:
Devour (or at least taste) 2,000 years of history: Stones brought to life by Michelangelo, the clash of ghostly gladiators in the Colosseum, the treasures of the Vatican. Or mingle with the locals and get in the mood for your upcoming yacht adventure by renting a boat on the lake in Villa Borghese, a tranquil park in the middle of the city. Afterwards, join the nightly passeggiata (promenade) along the Corso. Molto bello!
Pine-scented forests and miles of sandy beach await your arrival on the tranquil island of Elba. Enjoy a glass of local Moscato with the fresh catch of the day before pondering your next move. Perhaps you’ll visit the nearby countryside with its small fishing villages and dramatic mountain passes. Or see the calming beauty of Tuscan Archipelago National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Or maybe you’ll decide to walk to the nearest beach and dip your toes into the warm Mediterranean.
Spend a day wandering among the rich and famous in the chic epicenter of the French Riviera — a world of exclusive boutiques, palm-fringed boulevards, sun-drenched beaches, and elegant sidewalk cafés. Be sure to visit the Avenue of the Stars, where you can place your hands in the prints of international celebrities. An optional escorted walking tour guides you through the best of this extraordinary and stylish city.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Glide into port in one of Europe’s most exclusive harbors. Mingle with other privileged yachtsmen or step ashore and start walking. The glittering Grand Casino, legendary for its exotic setting on screen and off, is a must see, as is the royal family’s palace and the tomb of Philadelphia-born Princess Grace in the Cathedral.
With its golden ochre and terracotta buildings, designer shops, and chic cafés, Portofino represents the height of Italian artistry and sophistication. Sip a cappuccino along the fabled marina or enjoy a day of shopping in one of the town’s tempting little boutiques. As you look out over the harbor from the famous Hotel Splendido, it’s hard not to admire the sleek, streamlined beauty of your Windstar ship.
