Sailing the Mediterranean on Royal Clipper

Porto Cervo Sardinia

sunny 69 °F

We arrived in Porto Cervo Sardinia about 10:00am and took the tender into the port. I think we really stopped here to kill some time, as there was not much to see other than some high end shops. Porto Cervo is a seaside village and the main center of the Costa Smeralda with a resident population of approximately 421 inhabitants. A renowned holiday resort, it was built around the deep natural port , whose shape resembles that of a deer and dominates the headlands overlooking the sea, the inlet and the scattered villas, surrounded by greenery. The village, inaugurated in 1964, is located on a raised level above the port. Previously the locals called it Poltu mannu.

After a walk to the center of town and back we headed back to the ship. At 4:00pm we set sail for Rome where we will arrive at about 7:00am and disembark at about 8:30am. All in all a great trip on a great ship with a really interesting multinational group of people on board.
