Day 1

Naples and Capri

Aristocrats have been vacationing in the Bay of Naples for thousands of years — ever since the ancient Romans escaped the hustle and bustle of their capital. This legendary bay is a great starting point before experiencing the delights of the Amalfi Coast and visiting the chic destinations of Capri and Positano.

Heading west, the more remote Mediterranean islands of Ponza and Palmarola lie en route to the dramatic islands of Corsica and Sardinia — one French flavoured, the other unmistakably Italian.

Each of these renowned islands has a multitude of small fishing villages and protected, tranquil anchorages not accessible by land and ideal for enjoying water sports.

A visit to the Maddalena archipelago on the northeast coast of Sardinia and a stop near stunning Cala di Volpe precedes disembarkation in fashionable Porto Cervo.

Day 1: Naples and Capri

Your journey will begin in Italy’s third largest city, Naples, located at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius. Just 6km from Naples International airport lies the Sannazzaro Marina from where you will set sail for the Marina Grande on the Isle of Capri.

Whether you choose to dine on board or on shore, the marina is just a short stroll from the winding streets full of high class shops and boutiques. The Piazzetta is the centre of attraction for the many international jet setters who visit the island every year.

Positano

Positano, Amalfi Coast

Cruising around Capri, the benefits of travel by yacht are apparent: you’ll be able to visit parts of the island inaccessible by other means. Discover the Grotta Bianca, the Natural Arch, the Faraglioni rocks, and the bay of Marina Piccola. A short one-hour hop back towards the mainland brings you to Positano, known as “The Gem of the Divine Coast.” Positano rises up vertically from the sea following the steep incline of the mountains.

This may be the only place in the world where the panoramic view of the town is more beautiful than the sea scape behind you (and yet another reason why a yacht is the best way to appreciate this coastline…) Spend the afternoon relaxing on the sun deck or try out the yacht’s water toys.

You may choose to dine alfresco and enjoy the breathtaking views, or head ashore and eat at one of Positano’s many fine restaurants. While you sleep your yacht will be steaming towards the remote islands of Italy’s Pontine Archipelago, and you will awake at anchor between Palmarola and Ponza.

Palmarola and Ponza

Ponza

Palmarolais one of the most charming islands in the Mediterranean. Enjoy a leisurely cruise through the island’s transparent blue waters while admiring its ruggedly handsome coastline dotted with grottoes, bays and cliffs. The shallow crystal clear waters of Palmarola’s south are a bather’s paradise and the perfect place to stop for lunch. This is a wonderful area for snorkelling and exploring caves.

If time allows, a visit to Ponza, the largest island of Italy’s Pontine Archipelago, is well worth the trip. Encircled by dramatic coves and cliffs, the main town with its colourful houses and is thought of by many visitors as a less-spoilt version of Capri. The island’s main settlement is Ponza Porto, around the harbour.

Compared to some Italian islands, there aren’t many tourist sites or monuments on Ponza, but there are some excellent restaurants as well as a few options for late-night drinking and dancing. Overnight the yacht will cruise to Bonifacio in Corsica.
