Beaches and culture cruises

corse village de cargese

CATLANTE's catamaran cruises give you the chance to meet the locals and learn about local history and culture.

If you enjoy learning about the history, customs and gastronomy of your vacation destination, if you like to engage in discussions to find out more, if you're fascinated by architecture, some cruises will suit you better than others.

The coastal towns and villages of the Mediterranean, this crossroads of civilizations, can be deciphered like a history book and discovered like a museum. The shores of Provence will tell you as much about Roman conquests as about the writers and painters who fell in love with its creeks and fishing ports in the late 19th century. The island of Elba, where Napoleon left an indelible mark in just ten months, still bears the Etruscan stigma and boasts architectural gems from the Medici era. Corsica is not to be outdone, with its Genoese towers guarding its shores, and the citadel of Calvi. In the West Indies, the island of Saint-Barthélemy, though bitterly disputed with France by the Maltese, English and Swedes, is imbued with the culture inherited from the Norman and Breton buccaneers, so much so that one village is called Lorient.

Mediterranean cultural cruises

Choose CATLANTE catamaran cruises and satisfy your curiosity at every port of call. Portoferraio, the capital of Elba, is so harmonious that its founder, Cosmopoli, called it "the cradle of civilization and culture, an example of balance and rationality". Admiral Nelson called it "the safest port in the world". Once there, we can only agree: a marvel of civil and military architecture. There's so much to visit that you always promise yourself you'll come back when you leave. This feeling of too-little-too-much will surely be the same after tasting the famous Aleatico wine accompanied by grilled octopus or stuffed sardines. Speaking of sardines, let's take advantage of our cruise from Marseille's mythical Vieux-Port to visit the superb Mucem Museum and the Cosquer cave. According to Frédéric Mistral, "who has seen Paris, if he has not seen Cassis, can say: I have seen nothing". The stopover in Cassis is one of the most eagerly awaited on a cruise through the calanques and archipelagos of Provence. This colorful fishing port is a concentrate of Provencal culture in its own right.
