Ideal for Summer Season
From the raw energy of Naples to the striking volcanic beauty of the Aeolian archipelago, this 7 day charter itinerary will take you on the Italian adventure of a lifetime.
- Day 1
Naples to Sorrento, your first taste of the Amalfi Coast
With its wealth of vibrant atmosphere and UNESCO listed historic centre, the city of Naples is the perfect way to start your Amalfi Coast charter vacation.
You can spend some time exploring the city’s labyrinth of streets lined with boutiques, workshops and tourist hotspots such as the royal palace. As one of Italy’s culinary heavyweights, you can choose from an array of delicious lunch options before embarking in Marina di Stabia in the bay of Naples. If you are looking for something upscale, we recommend Palazzo Petrucci.
Once onboard your luxury charter yacht, you can relax and enjoy views of rugged coastlines as you cruise to the cliff-perched seaside town of Sorrento - the gateway to the Amalfi Coast. You’ll then enjoy sundowners on deck as you make your way to the glamorous island of Capri.
- Day 2
The natural wonders of Capri
Capri’s impressive landscape and old world Italian charm have long been a magnet for crewed charter yachts and the world’s artistic souls who find inspiration here.
On a Mediterranean yacht charter vacation, Capri is a must-visit. The island was made famous in the 1950s when the glitterati would flock to the island in summer, and today it still retains its style. Walk the gardens of the ancient villas that line the coast such as San Michele and Lysis before you lunch at Da Paolino.
The two towns - Anacapri and Capri Town are mainly accessible by foot and both offer a combination of luxury and natural beauty, including the island’s most famous attraction - the spectacular Blue Grotto.
There are also plenty of secret coves to find to enjoy a private spot of sunbathing for the afternoon before getting back on board to cruise to the crystal clear waters of Nerano. Dinner can be enjoyed onboard, made by your own private chef.
- Day 3
Lap the luxury of Positano
On day 3 you continue your Italian journey by sea through the protected waters of Punta Campanella to pretty Positano.
This popular town rises dramatically out of the blue of the sea as you approach and draws you into its sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta buildings that wind steeply into the hills. The Ancient Romans built a number of villas on the coast of Positano, the ruins hold fragments of the original architecture and decorations.
Before you arrive you will venture to the island or Sirenuses to gain some insight on Italy's mythical heritage. Positano is also host to many fabulous beach clubs, including TreVille Beach Club regarded as one of the most exclusive and private resorts for motor yachts. Enjoy an evening of dinner and drinks in trendy Il San Pietro or the highly acclaimed Zass before returning to your superyacht.
- Day 4
Discover the heights of Ravello
Take in the views of Positano’s vertiginous landscape in the morning light with breakfast on deck before cruising along the beautiful Amalfi Coast to Amalfi and Ravello.
Dubbed the ‘Pearl of the Amalfi Coast’ the town of Amalfi is known for its historical importance and green, verdant landscapes. Disembark your luxury yacht to explore the historic centre, Cathedral of Sant’andrea, and lemon groves where you can sample locally-made limoncello. Mountaintop Ravello offers a variety of heritage packed hotspots such as Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone.
After an afternoon of exploring the breathtaking vistas of the destination, be sure to reserve a table at Palazzo Avino for a decadent dining experience overlooking the mountainous coast before returning to your motor yacht for an evening of cocktails under the stars.
- Day 5
Stromboli to Panarea
After dinner, you take a night crossing towards the Aeolian Islands so that you’ll wake to enjoy the spectacular beauty of volcanic Stromboli.
The island is home to one of the three active volcanoes in Italy, and a private guide can take you to explore its summit. While some of the island has been damaged historically by the volcano, the black sands and unusual settlements make in truly unique. You’ll then move on to the smallest of the Aeolian island’s - Panarea. It’s clear, warm waters make this a perfect spot to snorkel while the UNESCO protected bay of Cala Junco on the southern coast offers views you’ll never forget.
- Day 6
Rejuvenate on the islands of Salina and Vulcano
On day 6 you’ll make a morning departure from Panarea to the lush, green island of Salina.
Here, simple white and pastel cubed houses, bushes of vivid pink bougainvillaea, trees overflowing with figs, lemons and grapefruit, and vines let you know you have reached your Mediterranean escape. Vulcano is famous for its thermal mud lake produced by the volcano located closely to the port area. After a dip in the mineral-rich muds, you can rinse off in one of the nearby hot springs feeling totally refreshed. If you prefer your spa treatments in more of a luxury setting, you can head to the exclusive 5-star resort Therasia Resort.
- Day 7
Vulcano to Lipari
On the last day of your charter, you’ll depart from Vulcano for your last stop Lipari.
As the largest and most populated of the Aeolian Islands, Lipari is a fantastic way to end your week in style. Its typically Mediterranean landscape of vertiginous green hills and precipitous cliffs against blue waters is contrasted with the busy, pastel-front harbour. Here you can admire the ancient citadel that watches proudly over the town and explore the historic centre and ancient acropolis. There are also a number of sandy beaches along its coast to enjoy before you leave.
