Take a trip on a ‘Tall Ship’ for a feel of days gone by.
If you’re free for eleven days from the 5th of July 2011 and have a love of ‘Tall Ships’ and are prepared to pay for luxury and pampering, a trip on the Royal Clipper may be for you. You can lean on the teak rail and look up at the taut sails of this traditionally crafted ship sporting polished brass and rich wood, reports the Daily Telegraph. As it’s not a cruise ship, the Clipper will sail close to shore so you can enjoy stunning views of the coastline with a drink in hand.
As would be expected, this once in a lifetime trip does not come cheap, but the price of £2999 per person (based on two people sharing a twin room/cabin) for 13 days, includes flights to Venice, returning from Rome and one night at the Plaza in Mestre with breakfast. It also includes guided sightseeing tours of Venice, Dubrovnik, Corfu, Pompeii and Rome, and visits to Rovinj, Hvar, Taormina, Kotor, Capri, Sorrento and Vesuvius. One night at the Crowne Plaza in Rome with breakfast, full breakfast, buffet lunch and a la carte dinner daily whilst on Royal Clipper, all port taxes (worth £180) and porterage of one item of luggage per person and all transfers are also included. What better way to see this long list of fascinating destinations than by sailing round the Med in style?
