Splendours of the Western Mediterranean

From the island of Malta to AthensPONANT invites you on an exceptional voyage with two ports of call in Sicily and four in Greece.

Le Lapérouse will leave Valletta, the capital of Malta and former stronghold of the Knights of the Order of Malta, for an 8-day cruise on seas that are brimming with history.

After calling at beautiful Catania whose Late Baroque style monuments spread to the foot of Mount Etna, we will set sail for Taormina.

In Taormina, the streets will lead you to the impressive ancient theatre, where the quality of the acoustics is exceptional. And as a constant backdrop: the majestic Mount Etna!

Le Lapérouse will then cross the Ionian Sea towards Katakolon, its first Greek point of call. From the port, you will be able to head to Olympia, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, whose ruins testify to its former grandeur. On the following day, from Itea, another exceptional site awaits: Delphi.

Your ship will then sail along the astonishing Corinth Canal, a famous sea channel dug out by men in the 19th century, and arrive in Nafplion. From Nafplion you will able to visit two ancient jewels: the Epidaurus Theatre and Mycenae, the royal city of House of Atreus.

The cruise will then enable you to discover Hydra, a small island of old-worldly charm where motorised traffic is banned.

This wonderful journey will end in Athens.


• Before your cruise, the possibility of discovering Valletta, capital of Malta, voted European Capital of Culture for 2018;
• Unesco World Heritage Site: the historic centre of Valletta (disembarkation port), the fabulous ancient Arab-Norman and Baroque heritage of Catania, Mount Etna from Taormina and its Greek Theatre, Delphi from Itea, the Acropolis from the disembarkation port in Athens;
