Silversea has revealed its 2016 Mediterranean Timeless Treasures brochure, showcasing a range of bespoke itineraries, from April to November 2016.
Karen Christensen, General Manager & Director Sales/Marketing, Australasia, says:
“With a strong Italian heritage, Silversea is an expert at showcasing the very best of the Mediterranean, through the eyes of a local. From the world-renowned and historic streets of Athens and stunning coastline of the Italian Riviera, to the hidden white sand beaches of Sanary-sur-Mer, France, and lesser-visited province of Castellon, Spain, Silversea’s intimate ships enable guests to get closer and sail directly into these exquisite ports, offering convenience and an insider’s view to the hidden towns of the Mediterranean. In this brochure, we’ve also put together a number of combination voyages, with savings of up to 15%, designed to appeal to Australian travellers who want to stay longer and explore more of this magnificent region.”
“This carefully designed 2016 Mediterranean brochure includes meticulous planned voyages combined with the luxury and highest levels of service that our guests have become accustomed to. Away from the expected and well beyond the crowds, our guests feel more like locals than tourists.”
Mediterranean onshore excursions highlights include:
- Helicopter rides over the seascapes of the Amalfi Coast
- Savouring Sicilian cuisine with olive oil and wine tasting tours in Trapani
- An evening immersed in a concert amid the ruins of Ephesus’ ancient Odeon Theatre
- Exploring the underground caves of Valencia, Spain’s Old Quarter.
In addition to Silversea’s all-inclusive luxurious voyages, with free Wi-Fi as standard and personal butler service, guests are also offered the opportunity to combine select Mediterranean voyages to receive a saving of up to 15%, when booked before 31 December 2015.
