In 2001, we took our first cruise on the Star Clipper, embarking from Civitavecchia for two weeks of sailing, primarily in the Ligurian Sea and Tyrrhenian Sea along the west coast of Italy. We visited mainland ports in Italy and France and legendary islands: Sicily, Corsica, Capri, Elba, Ponza, and the Aeolian Isles. Before the voyage, we spent a few days in Languedoc-Roussillon, and after the voyage, we spent a few days in Tuscany.
