Silversea - An invite to an exclusive escape
Selector, Wine Selectors and Silversea Cruises invite you on an exclusively curated food + wine experience aboard Silver Muse.
This once-in-a-lifetime adventure begins, pre-cruise, in Barcelona, where you’ll spend two wonderful days and nights.
Day one features an exclusive day trip to the world renowned Bodegas Torres, guided by Selector publisher Paul Diamond, where you’ll enjoy a hosted Torres tasting followed by an exquisite local lunch with perfectly paired wines.
The next day, armed with a wealth of information on Barcelona’s gourmet gems beyond the tourist trail, you’ll spend the morning on an exciting exploration.
That afternoon will see you boarding the luxurious Silver Muse, the newest ship in the Silversea fleet, and setting sail on an exquisite seven-night cruise.
First stop is the historic old port on the island of Ibiza, part of Spain’s sun drenched Balearic Islands. Then you’ll visit Porto Mahon on the pre-historic Menorca, a Mediterranean island that has escaped the ravages of tourism and modernism.
Antibes, and the gorgeous Provence region of France, will be your next destination – an amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in Provençal wine, food and culture.
The port of Monte Carlo and the Côte d’Azur follow, where you get to explore the municipality of Monaco and beyond.
The Italian Riviera awaits, with the beautiful fishing village of Portofino offering the chance to dive to the depths of the Christ of the Abyss, have a swim at Paraggi, or view the Ligurian Sea on the cliffs of Santa Margherita.
The Florentine port of Livorno is next, from where you’ll visit Florence for a private Tuscan masterclass. Your hosts will be the Ricasoli family of Castelo Brolio, the most important of the Chianti families, dating back to the 12th century.
The next day will begin at Leone Blu Residenza D’Epoca Ricasoli, a private hotel where you will taste the estate’s finest wines in the Mirrors Salon overlooking the Arno River.
An exquisite hosted Tuscan lunch will follow in the Bettino Salon, overlooking the Goldoni square. Fully sated, you’ll head off to explore the glories of Florence before heading back to the ship for dinner.
Finally, having created eight days of incredible memories, you’ll farewell your new friends as you disembark in the Roman port of Civitavecchia.
