Darioush and Shahpar Khaledi are your hosts for this spectacular adventure aboard the Crystal Esprit. This all-inclusive, 8-day/7-night private yacht cruise takes you along the scenic coasts of Southern Italy and Croatia.  You’ll depart from the eternal city of Rome, exploring Capri, Naples, Lipari, Sicily, Calabria and the Bay of Kotor. 

Then on to Croatia, where Venetian and Byzantine influences create haunting, ethereal appeal. You’ll experience Kotor and Dubrovnik, two truly unspoiled Adriatic towns, with breathtaking Dalmatian Coast beaches, and a bay that will forever remain in your memory.

The elegant, boutique yacht provides unparalleled amenities, including butler service for each suite and imaginative Michelin-worthy cuisine inspired by the flavors of the lands you will explore. Paired, naturally, with Darioush’s award-winning wines.

At each port of call you’ll enjoy wine dinners, guided village explorations, scenic tours, winery excursions, market visits and cooking classes, in addition to access to spectacular secluded beaches and nature preserves.
