The Italian Riviera

The Italian Riviera is a nature-lover's paradise, famed for its temperate climate and luxuriant vegetation of silver olive trees, vines, cypresses, pines and array of beautiful flowers, The Italian Riviera is a constant delight with azure seas, green mountains and pretty little villages and towns.

A yacht charter in Italy must incorporate the stunning Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi coast is around a day sail south of Naples. Amalfi and Positano, like Capri, attract visitors and charter yachts of the highest prestige. The 50 km of the Amalfi coastline stretches mainly from Sorrento to Salerno. It remains a place of rare and incredible beauty. The hillside towns are a truly magnificent display of Italian engineering and architecture. Terrace houses and buildings cling to steep cliffs, rising from the coastline. Positano, Amalfi and Ravello are the jewels of the Amalfi Coast. The Isle of Capri and Amalfi present some of the most spectacular coastlines of the whole Mediterranean.

Other islands in the Campania area around Naples, include Ishcia and Ponza. Ishcia is a pine studded, volcanic island surrounded by sparkling waters. Luxury yachts and superyachts tend to frequent Ischia as a part of the overflow from the hectic pace on Capri.

Ponza is a stunning little island, which is often overlooked by charter yachts heading to the more glamourous Isles of Capri and Ishcia. Ponza is a quaint island, relatively unaffected by tourism and capitalism. Ponza is an ideal stop for charters. The main port is somewhat of a 'fishermans village', with some fantastic authentic restaurants. A hike up the hill which towers over the port, provides a stunning panorama of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
