Rudolf Nureyev

Li Galli/Le Sirenuse, Amalfi Coast

Home to the seductive sirens in Homer’s Odyssey, Li Galli or Le Sirenuse are a group of three romantic atolls close to Positano on the Amalfi Coast. Il Gallo Lungo, the largest of the three, is shaped like a jumping dolphin and was once the beloved holiday home of Rudolf Nureyev, the world renowned Russian ballet dancer and choreographer. Nureyev purchased it in 1988 for $2.4 million and subsequently redecorated the island’s three-bedroom mansion with an extravagant Moorish design that reflected his artistic flair. Unfortunately, Nureyev could not enjoy his private haven for long, relinquishing the property when he died in 1992. However, it’s now possible to rent the island for an exclusive holiday – perhaps something to consider if you’re exploring Capri, Ischia and the Amalfi Coast on a superyacht.
