Day 1: Check-in
Embarkation available from 18:00 on Wednesday 1 June at Porto Romano, Fiumicino. The galley will then be arranged and the cabins assigned.
In the early hours of the morning, accompanied by the first light of dawn, we set sail for the islands, enjoying manoeuvres as we sail towards our destination: Ponza. This island is a little gem that offers anchorages and anchorages practically all around the perimeter. Depending on the wind, there is always a shelter and each shelter offers an enchanting bay where you can daydream and be pampered by the waves while admiring the magnificent landscape. Once we arrive in time for sunset, we will stop at the magnificent Cala Core and Frontone, where you can anchor to spend the night at anchor. Alternatively, it is possible to moor at the port of Ponza.
In the morning, we will move to the western part of the island of Ponza. Here you can admire the famous Chiaia di Luna (Moon's Chiaia), which, although inaccessible, is still a must-see. Later, we will sail northwards, towards the wonderful Faraglioni di Lucia Rosa, which offer beautiful views and small beaches where you can relax and take a short walk. After a day at sea, we will relax with a good dinner on board and spend the night at anchor in Cala Acqua or Cala Feola, incredibly scenic coves.
After breakfast, we set sail for Palmarola, the westernmost island of the Pontine Islands, located west of the island of Ponza. This small and pretty island, almost uninhabited, offers a nature reserve of rare beauty. Its name derives from the dwarf palm that grows wild on its surface. The smooth backdrop of silvery and yellowish stone creates pleasant colour effects and gives you the thrill of incredible water nuances. Our first stop will be La Forcina, a beautiful ravine on the island with crystal-clear waters perfect for snorkelling. Moving further south, we will reach Cala Brigantina where we will have lunch on board. Later we move to the southern tip of the island to admire the magnificent Faraglioni rocks, and then begin to sail up the coast towards the north. We will stop at Cala Silverio or Cala del Porto for the last dives of the day before spending the night in the roadstead.
Day 5: Check-out
Last day of our cruise! After breakfast, we set sail for one last noteworthy ravine, The Cathedrals: a series of narrow, high basalt caves that carve out the cliffs, resembling a real Gothic cathedral with vaults and pillars. Here we will stop for a swim and a dip in the crystal-clear waters, a spectacle of nature! After lunch on board, we will depart for Fiumicino, where we will return for disembarkation in the late afternoon.
The itinerary might be subject to variations due to weather conditions, safety and technical evaluations of the Captain of the boat. This programming is intended as indicative and non-binding.
