Glitz, glamour and old-world charm come in equal measures on this trip as you drive along Sardinia’s Emerald coast. Cue a tumble of pink granite. Sandy coves. And turquoise seas. Few stretches of the Mediterranean look as good as the Costa Smeralda, it’s a regular Italian Eden. You’ll pass pretty villages like San Pantaleo - a slice of old-school Sardinia that’s all crooked lanes and stone cottages, before coming to a stop in Porto Cervo. A millionaire’s playground, this is the coast’s chic capital where the in-crowd love to be seen. A guided tour of the town’s best bits is followed by some free time to tick a few must-dos off your list. Burn out your credit card in the designer shops. Sip a cappuccino in the piazza and watch the Gucci-clad glitterati glide by. Last but not least, you’ll pause to soak up the sensational views over Cala di Volpe Bay and Romazzino, before heading back to the ship.
There is walking and steps at the main stops and there is a 200-metre walk from the terminal back to the ship.
