    Porto Conte Snorkelling Tour

    The Coral Riviera is well-known for its rich marine life and colourful underwater gardens. The beauty of this tour is that you'll avoid the long navigation from Alghero, and instead cast off in a dinghy boat from Porto Conte bay so you'll soon arrive at your first snorkelling stop. Porto Conte marine reserve is home to hundreds of Mediterranean fish, so once you've dived in, keep your eyes peeled for fish, red coral formations and margarita flowers. Once you're back on dry land, you'll taste and learn about Akenta, a careful selection of grapes from Vermentino di Sardegna DOC, left to age underwater.

    Pompeii Half-day Tour

    Of all the Roman ruins in Italy, none is as poignant or fascinating as Pompeii. Buried under volcanic ash by the 79 AD eruption of Mt Vesuvius – which still looms large in the distance – Pompeii brings to life ancient Rome. You'll tread the cobbled streets brought to life by a guided commentary through headsets. All the major highlights here are covered – the forum, thermal baths, gymnasium and the market piazzas. You can still see frescoes on the walls of the homes of the Roman elite. Walking through its ruins is like leafing through the pages of a living history book.
