Day 1

Riposto and Catania

Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, is a vast melting pot. Over the last 3,000 years it has been governed by rulers from 13 different cultures leaving an incredible mix of local customs, exotic food traditions and diverse architecture on the island.

Charter a superyacht in Sicily, or take your luxury yacht there, and you will find a mix of cultural and scenic attractions to fill any itinerary.

Day 1: Riposto and Catania

On day one you can rendezvous with your luxury yacht at the Marina di Riposto — a great base for visiting Mount Etna and Catania, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 1693 and has been rebuilt in the Baroque style.

Inland, for a lazy day in the sun, there are a variety of beaches in this area including the Playa di Catani with its golden sand, the Faraglioni beaches, which are composed of lava rock, and the Riviera of the Cyclops Marine Protected Area.

Check out the summer festivals, which include the Feast of Saint Peter, the Patron Saint of Riposto (June 29), Madonna del Carmelo (July 16) and Madonna della Lettera (August 15).
