7 days exploring the Pontine Islands by superyacht

7 days exploring the Pontine Islands by superyacht

1 of 7 1/7
Day 1

Rome to Ponza

Kick start your private cruise or luxury yacht charter in the Pontine Islandsin the ancient city of Rome. The meander along the coast to the serene archipelago where you will discover, life slows down a notch or two.

Now, it is not that these islands are "undiscovered", quite to the contrary, in fact the islands are taken over by the elite of Rome escaping the city throughout July and August. However, the atmosphere is classically Italian and is a favourite sport for superyacht owners.

When you finally drag yourself away, Naples awaits. After a week in the islands, Naples will get you back on your feet again with its vibrant nightlife, restaurants and designer stores.

Day 1: Rome to Ponza

Spend the morning cruising from Rome down the coast towards Ponza. The main port is found snug within an amphitheatre of pastel-hued buildings rising up around the harbour. Spend the afternoon exploring and getting your bearings.

There are a collection of ruins from the distant past: Egyptian, Greek, Canaanite and Phoenician and numerous lovely grottoes excavated by the Etruscans. As evening falls, have a drink on the terrace of one of the harbour side restaurants and dine on fresh seafood that arrived earlier in the day on the dock below.
