Sweet Mediterranean Escape on Le Bougainville
Discover a PONANT itinerary in the heart of the Mediterranean: join us aboard Le Bougainville for an unforgettable 8-day cruise from the Aegean Sea to the French Riviera, between Athens and Nice. Succumb to the charms of the Mediterranean and its breathtaking scenery.
From Athens, you will follow a memorable crossing of the Corinth Canal and call at Itea, not far from the marvellous Delphi archaeological site, on the slopes of Mount Parnassus.
After calling at Katakolon, you will leave Greece for Italy. You will visit Amalfi and its coast, which are magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Perched between sky and sea, Amalfi presents amazing landscapes.
Le Bougainville will then sail to the island of Ponza. On this volcanic isle where Circe was born, like Ulysses you will be captivated by its wild contours, its hidden swimming spots and its small, adorable fishing port.
Bonifacio, a gem in the far south of the Isle of Beauty, will be the final port of call on your voyage. Veritable fortress sculpted by the wind and the spray, the “sentinel city” will reveal its historical centre and its long cobbled streets.
Your cruise will end in Nice, a mythical city on the French Riviera whose age-old culture and natural wonders have inspired artists and travellers since time immemorial.
Welcoming and spacious common areas, refined open-to-the-sea design, sleek exterior lines, a marina to make access to the ship's Zodiac® inflatables easier, hi-tech equipment, an outdoor pool, a multisensorial underwater lounge… Le Bougainville represents the new generation of ships designed to combine discovery and exploration with luxury, even in the planet's most remote and isolated regions.
