Sights and tips for your yacht charter in Italy
You need to carefully select your goals in advance, because a boat of this size needs a lot of services and enough space.
Which areas are especially recommended for your yacht charter in Italy? Visit Campania with your yacht, a region of southwestern Italy known for its historic Roman ruins and spectacular coastline. Impressively nestled between the famous gray cone of Mount Vesuvius and the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Naples, the capital Naples is ideal for your vacation. Further south on the Amalfi Coast, in villages such as Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, colorful houses nestle against the cliffs - a unique panorama best enjoyed from the water's edge. During the day, relax on the deck of your yacht in front of the breathtaking coast of the Gulf of Naples and enjoy the view of the beautiful natural landscape. In the evening, you can walk through the streets and discover hidden corners and squares. Try the many Neapolitan specialties!
A yacht charter in Sardinia is always a first-class choice! The Costa Smeralda and the Maddalena Archipelago are popular with visitors all over the world for good reason. Because there is a heavenly combination of sun, sea and lots of dolce vita, this island will certainly captivate you. Whether you prefer to admire the unspoilt nature of the Maddalena archipelago or anchor for the fine sandy beaches of the Costa Smeralda, enjoy your exclusive life on board your yacht.
The town of Capri is nested in the cliffs of a spectacular limestone coastline that offers a dynamic ambiance of boutiques, trendy eateries, and chic bars and spikes out of the sea. A spot to see and be seen. Sixty-five caverns punctuate the cliffs of Capri, and a major highlight is the “Blue Grotto” which is entered by boat through a small passage and 65 feet below sea level.
Inhabiting a spectacular stretch of shoreline, Positano is an old fishing hamlet populated with sand splashed cafes and boutiques. A great isle for kicking back and enjoying the seashore and water sports. The Galli Islands lie just offshore, and we’ll stop here for lunch.
Rich in history and myth, Amalfi is the land of everlasting Spring. Hercules buried his beloved nymph “Amalfi” here as it was the most wonderful place on the planet. An old seafaring center in the 9th century, the Cathedral of St. Andrew still remains. A stroll through the city shows museums, convents, piazzas, fountains, and historical churches. A trip to the Emerald Grotto is a must – you row through a marine cave with amazing stalactites and stalagmites (many of which are submerged) and the environment are draped with a myriad of golden and emerald hues.
Salerno is considered the capital of the Amalfi Coast and is located along the Tyrrhenian Sea. Salerno is a great place to explore the narrow streets, beautiful towns and villages, medieval churches and house while taking in the scenery and sampling the delicious food and wine bars, before setting sail.
Sorrento is perched on a terraced ledge over the sea, surrounded by the countryside of citrus groves and olive trees. A labyrinth of alleys and steps and lovely beaches and the picturesque seaport join the village beneath. Sorrento has been attracting tourists since Roman times and its name hails from the mythical mermaids who tempted his crew and Ulysses in the Odyssey with their siren’s tune. The city has lively shopping, an unspoiled old quarter, lovely walks, and pizza you could purchase by the meter.
One of the great attractions of a visit to Naples is the opportunity to explore the rich cultural and natural landscape of the surrounding Campania region. Seaside escapes, restless volcanoes, royal palaces and some of the most famous archaeological sites in the world; there is something for everyone, all within easy reach of the city.
