    This wonderful full-day excursion gives a true insight into the different spectrums of Mauritian scenery to be found.


    Leaving the pier, you will travel from the center of Curepipe along a tarred road that leads gently up to and round the rim of Trou-aux-cerfs, an extinct volcanic crater, whose floor is now heavily wooded. Making a photo-stop here, you will be treated to a magnificent view over the entire island and its towering mountain ranges.


    Your drive continues from here to Grand-Bassin (Ganga Talao), a sacred lake and pilgrimage place for the Hindu where you will have a guided visit. In this idyllic location there is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and other Hindu deities and many Hindu pilgrims make the walk in bare feet from their homes to the lake. Hindu legend is that the lake is filled with the waters of the holy Ganges of India, making this a very significant place for all Hindus.


    From here, you will next make your way through the forest reserve of Plaine-Champagne, with a stop at a viewpoint that looks out over the spectacular Black River Gorges. Further down the winding road, you will reach a local restaurant with a breathtaking view over the coastline for lunch.


    Traveling along through thick Chinese Guava groves, your route next takes you to discover the magnificent Chamarel waterfall which emerges from the moors on the way down to view the unique seven-colored earths of Chamarel. These unusual mounds of undulating land that stretch in contrasting rainbow colored layers of earth are believed to be the result of weathering and volcanic origin.


    Your journey back takes you down a winding road that unveils the West coast - the Morne Mountain where you will have a final photo stop, and Benitiers Island. Before reaching the pier in Port Luis, your route will pass the fishing villages and the famous salt pans of Black River.

    Discover the most fascinating aspects of Bonaire’s history on an enlightening walk through downtown and through stories from costumed characters in the Terramar Museum.


    While strolling through the heart of Kralendijk, the island’s capital, you will see how the 17th-century Dutch-built Fort Oranje has been converted into the island’s main courthouse. Similarly, the Parliament House was once the private residence of a prominent family. As revealing as these architectural insights will be, few experiences will be quite so revealing as listening to the museum’s historical actors describe what life was like in the past. You may hear about the Dutch colonizers, how slavery was abolished and the origins of the island’s traditions. The exhibits cover more than 7,000 years of history through artifacts recovered from shipwrecks, 3D reconstructions, descriptive timelines and historical photographs.


    After browsing the museum, you will have time for shopping at a market near the harbor.

    Hike down to a black-sand beach of volcanic origin and discover the lasting influence of King Kamehameha, who was born nearby in the stunningly beautiful countryside.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at a statue of King Kamehameha I, which stands near the site where he was born. Kamehameha is best known for uniting the Hawaiian Islands into one kingdom in 1810, and the statue recognizes his accomplishments.


    A wonderfully scenic drive will then bring you to the Pololu Valley, a verdant landscape that is still only sparsely populated despite being first settled in the 15th century. You will have the option of admiring the spectacular coastal scenery from an elevated lookout or hiking down to the black-sand beach.


    Made from lava that cooled instantly and shattered when it flowed into the sea, the black sand retains more heat than white sand. Consequently, sea turtles favor it for their nests.


    You will enjoy another perspective of the Big Island’s rocky northern shore at Keokea Park, where you will stop for lunch. The coast isn’t protected by offshore reefs, so the surf here is strong, rough and wonderfully picturesque. It is an ideal setting for photos.


    A bit inland, you will find Hawi, a free-spirited community with plenty of eclectic shops, including the Kohala Coffee Mill. You will stop there for a cup of coffee made from Kona beans and a scoop of local, hand-crafted ice cream.

    Hike a winding forest trail through some of the most spectacular countryside on Kauai, a natural wonderland that lives up to its nickname, the “Garden Island.”


    After departing from the pier, you will learn about the history of Kauai from the local guide, who will regale you with stories of the “Garden Island.” The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain, Kauai is covered by tropical rainforest, emerald-green valleys and jagged mountains of volcanic origin. It is a gorgeous setting for hiking through the forest.


    The trail that you will follow covers about five miles and is immensely picturesque the entire time. As you hike through the lush wilderness, you will gaze out over some of the most extraordinary terrain in Hawaii. You can expect to see thundering waterfalls, primeval mountains and deep valleys, all created by ancient volcanic activity.


    Along the way, the guide will point out the most interesting flora and fauna, especially those endemic to Kauai. You may see indigenous white plumbago in bloom, unusual ferns on the forest floor, brightly colored bromeliads clinging to tree branches and native forest birds such as the Kauai Amakihi and the Anianiau, the smallest of Hawaii’s honeycreepers.

    Gaze out over the sea from several spectacularly scenic hilltops, where you will tour a 14th-century castle and the former palace of an Austrian archduke.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at Bellver Castle, a spectacular Gothic landmark from the 14th century. Its round design is unusual among Spanish castles, and although seemingly impenetrable, the fortress never served a defensive purpose.


    As you ramble about the hilltop castle taking photos, you will appreciate the origin of its name, which means “lovely view” in Catalan. Few panoramas are quite so beautiful.


    Continuing on, you will enjoy a picturesque drive inland, passing through Valldemossa, the island’s highest town. Still renowned for Polish composer Fréderic Chopin and French author George Sand spending the winter of 1838-1839 in a monastery here, the town has retained its atmospheric charm.


    Nearby, you will find Son Marroig, the former palace of Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria. The estate is handsomely decorated with period furnishings and makes quite the setting for you to enjoy an aperitif under the Carrara marble rotunda that overlooks the sea. The oddly shaped rock formation that you will see jutting into the water is Na Foradada, which means “pierced rock,” a reference to the gaping 60-foot vertical hole in the center of the rock.


    The panoramic view from the nearby Mirador de Na Foradada restaurant will be just as magnificent. Lunch will consist of a traditional mixed paella cooked over a wood-fired grill.

    Stroll the cobblestone paths of Alfabia Gardens, an oasis of greenery that surrounds an estate dating to the 13th century. An official Cultural Heritage Site, the gardens contain rare species from all over the world. While meandering about, you may see pomegranate trees with twisted trunks, Indian horse chestnuts, Spanish firs and the Queen’s Garden, an enchanting greenspace redesigned for Isabella II’s visit in the mid-19th century. Even so, the highlight may be the 72-column pergola adorned with dozens of sculptures and concealed jets that shoot graceful arcs of water through the air. Following a leisurely lunch in the gardens, you will visit Bellver Castle, a spectacular Gothic landmark from the 14th century. Its round design is unusual among Spanish castles and the seemingly impenetrable fortress is just as fascinating inside. As you ramble about the hilltop castle, you will appreciate the origin of its name Bellver, which means “lovely view” in Catalan.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Enjoy the serenity of Alfabia Gardens, a botanical gem built around a 13th-century estate. • Follow the cobblestone paths through one exotic garden area after another. • Explore the 14th-century Gothic landmark Bellver Castle and take in the panoramic views.


    HELPFUL HINTS:
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing. • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    The Perugian poet, Giosuè Carducci, left a memorable description of Umbria with the term “the green heart of Italy,” where every imaginable shade of green can be witnessed in one breath.


    Experience the beauty, history, wine, and flavors of Umbria through your guided tour of the Monte Vibiano Castle, the ancient Vigna Lorenzo vineyard, and the Cantina Monte Vibiano winery. Leave with your driver and guide on a picturesque journey from Civitavecchia for a visit of the historic center of the Umbrian hilltop town of Todi. Capture impressive views from every direction and enjoy a coffee break in Todi before you continue the journey to Monte Vibiano Castle. Arrive at the 2,000-year-old castle owned by the Fasola Bologna family since the 19th century.


    Your guided tour starts through a medieval iron gate and a guarding tower as you make your way to the beautiful castle gardens. Visit the private family chapel to view unusual and fascinating paintings by a famous Umbrian painter. Proceed to the Elizabethan labyrinth, an original green theatre, and a historical swimming pool. Learn about the Etruscan origins of the castle and the Vibi family who produced two Roman Emperors. Leave the castle behind you with a short drive to the entrance of the olive grove. Electric cars await you for a drive through the ancient olive trees to the evocative Vigna Lorenzo, which dates to the times of the Carthaginians, who under Hannibal defeated the Romans in 217 BC. Discover the traditions and legends that soak the soil of this magical environment, where the Fasola-Bologna Family lead Italy’s green revolution in the production of wine and olive oil with zero CO2 emissions.


    Depart from Vigna Lorenzo with the electric cars on a scenic ride to the winery. At Cantina Monte Vibiano, accompany an expert sommelier on a tour of the vinification and barrel rooms of the environmentally sensitive winery. Learn how wine is produced and aged using pioneering sustainable processes. Conclude your winery tour on a panoramic terrace with a wine tasting experience and a three-course meal representing the best flavors of Umbria. Return to Civitavecchia, but not before a mid-way stop for a visit and coffee break in Piazza Martiri d'Ungheria in the ancient city of Viterbo.
