See the Amalfi Coast by superyacht: Cruising with the 50m La Pellegrina 1

10 March 2022

Constantly and lovingly maintained by her present owner, La Pellegrina 1 is offered both for sale and for charter this season. As a yacht built for long-range and fast cruising in luxurious comfort, La Pellegrina 1 has all the features needed for a perfect cruise. To find out more, we join captain and crew of 49.5-metre La Pellegrina 1 for a week-long tour of Italy’s historical southern coastline as recommended by Camper & Nicholsons.

Day one: Ischia

Board La Pellegrina 1 in Naples. After settling in, cruise the serene Bay of Naples to the island of Ischia. Step ashore for a stroll around the village of Sant’Angelo then unwind in the thermal spas of this ancient volcanic island.

Day two and three: Capri

Set sail in the morning for chic Capri, where cable cars will take you straight to the city centre in a matter of minutes. Stroll around the famous Piazzetta, a hive of activity that’s packed with cute cafés and locals going about their day. The following morning, pay a visit to the baroque dome of Santo Stefan and the charming town of Anacapri on the slopes of Monte Solaro.

Day four: Positano

Cruise towards the mainland and anchor beneath the pastel-coloured town of Positano. Naturally beautiful and postcard-perfect, this ancient settlement is famous for the production of limoncello. Enjoy an afternoon of water sports or head into town to explore her hidden charms. The church of Santa Maria Assunta, built in the 1920s, is a must-see.

Day five: Amalfi

Cruise the short distance to the traditional fishing village of Amalfi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which boasts a rich history as a maritime state. Take time to wander her cobbled streets and pick up some local food and souvenirs. Return to La Pellegrina 1 to begin the overnight crossing to the Aeolian Islands.

Day six: Sorrento

The romantic town of Sorrento is known for its sweeping water views and the bustling, café-lined square of Piazza Tasso. The historic centre is a warren of narrow alleys that’s home to many shops, as well as the Chiesa di San Francisco, a 14th-century church with a tranquil cloister.

Day seven: Naples

Before heading back to Naples, stop in the historic city of Pompeii. Take a walk among the ruins and pay homage to her past. Have lunch back on board before hiking to nearby Mount Vesuvius, or visit the vineyards that line the famous landscape.
