SEADREAM Yacht Club's boutique SeaDream I will make a rare visit this August to two of Italy's most enticingly-picturesque and sought after ports for wining, dining, shopping and beach-going – but which see few cruise ships because they lack large-scale port facilities.

Crotone in Calabria on the Ionian Sea is renowned for its classic Italian-lifestyle of small and cosy restaurants and bars, handicraft markets, centuries-old archaeological sites and sunny beaches.

And Monopoli in nearby Puglia, a region of growing interest to Italophiles, is located on the Adriatic and welcomes visitors to cobble-stoned alleyways, grottoes, seafood restaurants and bars, beaches… and has a cannon-topped castle built in the 16th century and now a cultural centre, and a hospital dating back to 1305.

SeaDream I will sail 7-days from Civitavecchia, the port for Rome, this August 8th for Croatia's medieval walled-city of Dubrovnik, visiting along the way Sorrento with the opportunity of a side-trip to Pompeii, Positano, Taormina to see Sicily's Mt Etna, and spectacular Kotor in Montenegro.

Prices start from US$5,426pp twin-share including premium bar drinks, wines, a golf simulator with 30-international courses, state-of-the-art fitness centre, mountain bikes for shore use, power and sail water-sports where permitted, crew gratuities and port charges and taxes.

Full details from travel agents or; SeaDream I carries a maximum of just 112 guests served by 95 crew.
