Rome & West Italy Yacht Charter Guide
Renaissance opulence, lush vineyards and animated piazzas dressed in unmistakeable Italian Flair
Infinite in its appeal, the west coast of Italy infuses art-filled cities, wine-rich countryside and a spectacular tapestry of landscapes amongst volcanic headlands and sparkling seas. From Renaissance palaces and Baroque masterpieces to sun-drenched coves and terraced slopes, it simply glistens with opportunities for unforgettable experiences.
Stretching down from the Italian Riviera, a luxury yacht charter of the west coast of Italy is an ideal destination for a multi-centre itinerary that combines legendary cities such as Rome, Capri, Ravello, Naples and Salerno with easy access to the spectacular cities of Tuscany. The recognisable landscape of Tuscany, with its countless Renaissance Madonna’s and rolling vineyards remain relatively unspoiled. Marvel at the captivating medieval architecture of Siena, climb to the top of the Duomo in Florence or just sit back and indulge with a chilled glass of local Chianti after a leisurely day of wine tasting.
Lying off the coast of Tuscany is the beautiful Island of Elba, richly endowed with pine clad mountains and curvaceous bays, and home to lustrous beaches. The hills are strewn with dazzling crystals from purple amethyst to green beryl, born from ancient ores and minerals that show themselves on the slopes of Mount Capanne. Another yachting hotspot off the west coast of Italy is the volcanic island of Ischia, blessed with sumptuous thermal springs and one of Europe’s most renowned spa centres.
The exhilarating and classically romantic city of Rome is steeped in history amongst its myriad of Roman ruins, ancient monuments and magnificent churches and cathedrals. From the Colosseum to Vatican City, days are filled with a true sense of ‘la Dolce Vita’ enriched with fine wines and fabulous Italian cuisine eaten al fresco. Full of character and urban grit, the chaotic yet charming city of Naples is one of the coasts most satisfying luxury yacht charter destinations. The loudest and most intense city of the west coast, its enchantingly faded grandeur and colourful culture are an unmissable part of any Italian charter itinerary.
