The region amazing coastline, steep hills and spectacular scenery, with a number of charming coastal villages and pretty beaches nested between remote Cillento Coast South from Salerno and the city of NAPLES. The area is ideal for a relaxing and indulgent superyacht charter holiday.

Before or just after your sailng, we can also arrange a visit to historic site of Pompeii. Spend all morning here, wandering around Pompeii and taking in the fascinating sights of the city’s preserved molten rock. Before you step on or off your yacht, be sure to take the time to cruise past the sunken city of Baiae to double up on experience. 


Isle of Capri

Starting out of a port near the Naples airport, you are likely to head towards billionaire island of Capri on the first night already. Located just off the mainland of Italy, Capri is seen as an absolute must stopover when cruising the Amalfi Coast. It is well known that even the Emperor Augustus had a holiday villa on the island namely. Famed for its beauty since the time of the ancient Greeks, there is a mythical charm about the island, with nowhere more mythical than the island’s famous Blue Grotto; a bathing place for the Romans; this limestone lagoon is full of small grottos where, when the sunlight shines through, the pools of water light up and sparkle, dazzling visitors with the most beautiful shades of blue.

Praiano

Nestled in between the towns of Amalfi and Positano, Praiano has more of a relaxed feel and has many small pebble beaches, some of which are only accessible by boat. It also enjoys the most sunshine on the Amalfi Coast, in the height of summer lasting until 8pm. Much quieter than its two big sisters nearby, Praiano is considered as the most romantic Amalfi Coast town due to its views which are extending from the Bay of Positano to the island of Capri. For the best sunsets; this is where you can plan a dinner at anchor so feel free to discuss the plan with your chef and captain.

Positano

Set sail towards the hillside village of Positano for absolutely best and certainly breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The charming atmosphere is also not to be missed, while during the mid-day heat, you can simply enjoy a few hours of watersports, with amazing surround views.  Later in the day, when you arrive on board of your luxury tender, Positano will look as pretty as a postcard; and the views are equally spectacular from one of the many hotels and bars dotted throughout the town's winding streets where you are likely to enjoy a late dinner or just a cup of best Italian cappuccino. You can also choose to have aperitif at Le Sirenuse overlooking the sparkling sea, or head to Il San Pietro di Positano for a dreamy Italian setting amidst the pine trees. Locals will more than happily mystify you with the legends surrounding Positano, her charm utterly magnetic. One of the most photogenic towns in the Mediterranean, the brightly coloured buildings that perch precariously on the cliff’s edge provide a stunning backdrop to this inlet. Quality restaurants abound, and the Grand Beach is the place to be seen; indeed, it was this town which was the first in Italy to import Bikinis from France in the 1960s.

Amalfi

One of the highlights of this spectacular itinerary will certainly be visit to the tiny colourful village of Amalfi. A pretty town with sunny piazzas and a pleasant port, you should not miss out on the tour of St. Andrew’s Cathedral. Dating to the 11th century and still serving as the grand architectural sight in the centre of town, her Baroque interior and Byzantine façade is impressive. The bronze statue of St. Andrew was sculpted by a student of Michelangelo too. You will miss out on the feast of St. Andrew as it is held June 25-27th, but the eponymous town of the region, is certainly one of the most luxurious destinations. Amalfi is made famous by the Hollywood actors of old who graced her winding mediaeval streets which maintain a feeling of classic Italian glamour. This is where you can find the best of Limoncello liquor samples, made from the local, stunning lemons that are unlike those you will find anywhere else. They are extraordinarily large, and prolific throughout the town. For dinner be sure to reserve a table at Palazzo Avino for a decadent meal overlooking the water.

Nerano

On the way to Nerrano, you could make a stopover at a prestigious Mediaeval town of Atrani. Noted as crowning place of the Doge, the local leaders of the time. Experience stepping back in time by wandering through the narrow-cobbled streets, under archways and through vaults, happening upon sun-filled piazzas filled with traditional Italian shops and bars. Arriving at the small village of Nerano you will be able to enjoy in the gorgeous beaches only accessible by water, which makes it perfect for exploring on a yacht. Jump in the tender to find your favourite spot, and relax in the sun with views of the greater Campania region. Spend the afternoon swimming, waterskiing or paddleboarding, or sunbathe on the yacht’s sundeck. For dinner ashore, restaurant Quattro Passi restaurant is highly recommended.

Sorrento

Although you could also start your charter by visiting Sorrento on the day 1, we usually recommend to end the charter here.  The town of Sorrent is just lovely.  Many define it as one of the best-known international tourist resorts, hometown of the poet Torquato Tasso, land of colors and Mermaids, city of orange and lemon groves.  It just has this lovely, international atmosphere with Italian flair that many of us love to bits so to say. It was around 200 years ago when we know it was the time of final steps of renessaince when cultural, economic and social rebirth for the whole Sorrento peninsula occurred. This was the time when the tourism vocation of the area was born and was established with its inclusion in the so-called “Grand Tour”.  Even today the town remains on top of the list of many artists, scientists and travellers.  You should not miss out on it either.  Sorrento is one of those stopovers which forms a part of a journey through the most important Italian sites that every young European noble of the time had to make to complete his cultural, historical and literary formation. Important guests such as Byron, Keats, Scott, Dickens, Goethe, Wagner, Ibsen and Nietzsche came to stay in Sorrento looking for sun and inspiration. As you are even more important, do not miss out on the highlight of any yachting holiday and spend a night in the lovely Sorrento.
