Looks like we’ll be cruising in May and hitting a handful of small ports that don’t have much intel here (food, wine, sights). Would love ANY suggestions for what to day in one day (and only ONE day in each place, it’s a cruise!) in and around the following places… We’ve never been to Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, and unfortunately the locations of the ports are not ideally situated to hit some of the more well known food/wine destinations, but I’m sure we will not lack for interesting destinations regardless.
Frejus/Saint-Raphael, France… anyone been to Recif restaurant? Aix is nearest “interesting” town. Not enough time to make it to Chateauneuf de Pape…
Bastia, Corsica… wish I could make it to Mattei Distillery/Domaine Mavela, but that is a bit far, and they do have a shop in town.
Trapani, Sicily… we will likely do a private food/wine tour, stop at a sheep cheesemaker, they suggest Tenute Olbios for wine, and Il Mattachione near Olbia for lunch, any thoughts welcome!
Sarande, Albania… no idea, haven’t researched yet
Kotor… more likely to do a small group tour here to see the sights
Zadar… no idea, haven’t researched yet
