Experience la dolce vita: Sail and bike in beautiful Italy - Sept 15- 22, 2024

There is much to look forward to on this Sail & Bike tour through Tuscany, as you cycle in the footsteps of the Etruscans, enjoying the Italian ‘dolce vita’! The cypress, vineyards, and olive trees that cover the rolling hills characterize the typical Tuscan landscape. Picturesque medieval towns with small, cobbled streets and colorful houses invite curious visitors to linger. Sandy beaches and remote bays beckon for a swim in the glistening water.

The Atlantis as our floating home for the week allows for a carefree travel experience, sailing with us from one place to the next. Her giant sails create a true seafaring ambience.


  • Culture: The Spanish fortress in the picturesque old town of Porto St. Stefano
  • Nature: Azure blue sea surrounding Elba
  • Activity: Take a bike ride through Tuscan scenery with its characteristic vineyards
  • Culinary: A glass of the incredible local wines immerses you in ‘La Dolce vita de Italia
  • Souvenir: Cheese, ham, wine, pasta and linen of all sorts make for great local souvenirs

Atlantis (Tallship)

The Atlantis is a guaranteed eye catcher in every harbor. Built in 1905 and christened Elbe 2, the Atlantis served faithfully as a light vessel in the North Sea, Germany. Afterwards she was elaborately restored as a Tallship for passenger cruises. The renovation featured a classy salon, a spacious upper deck including seats and a cocktail bar as well as 16 comfortable air conditioned guest cabins including a shower and WC. A true highlight and centerpiece of the Atlantis is the open air bar, where the dedicated crew conjures creative beverages and cocktails for the guests. Mealtimes are typically served on deck, as there is nothing better than a lovingly prepared dinner outdoors on a Tallship at sunset. The unique charm and atmosphere on board this incredible Tallship really come to life through the lively character of the crew. Their smiles are especially wide when eager guests show interest in taking part in the setting of sails.

Special Features

  • Cabin features: A/C, central heating, bathroom, shower, washbasin and WC
  • Beds: 2 ground level twin beds per cabin
  • Service: mid-week towel change and basic tidy
  • Extras: 3 masts with sails (750 m² sail surface), quiet generator, sun recliners on deck, large tables and benches on deck, spacious and comfortable saloon, fully functional sailing boat
