AMALFI COAST & SICILY / 10 DAYS
DAY 1 | NAPLES — ISCHIA — (2 hrs)
For the start of this itinerary you’ll arrive in Naples, where your yacht will be waiting for you in the main port. If you are an archeology enthusiast, you will want to arrange a tour to the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, otherwise, the yacht will depart immediately for the island of Ischia where you will anchor for your first night on board.
DAY 2 | ISCHIA — POSITANO — (3 hrs)
Many charterers are content to spend the day exploring Ischia, which is peppered with natural hot springs and lush vegetation that were a delight to ancient Greeks and Romans. Once you are satiated of her charms, the yacht will head south along the Amalfi Coast toward Positano and find a quiet anchorage.
DAY 3 | POSITANO — GALLI ISLANDS (30 mins)
After awakening to enjoy a delightful Mediterranean breakfast, the yacht will head for the Galli Islands where you can enjoy a refreshing swim and play with the water toys offered on board. The captain will assure your reservation for the night on the famed isle of Capri — whose allure has been captivating famous visitors for centuries.
DAY 4 | CAPRI — GOLFO DI POLICASTRI — (7 hrs 30 mins)
After lingering in Capri for a morning of shopping, a visit to the Blue Grotto is always a delight and then head across the Golfo di Policastri for a quiet evening at anchor.
DAY 5 | GOLFO DI POLICASTRI — MARATEA (1 hr)
If you enjoyed the anchorage chosen for the previous day, you may opt to remain here longer, or you can ask your captain to set out for Maratea, which is another enjoyable spot for water sports and relaxation.
DAY 6 | MARATEA — LIPARI — (10 hrs)
DAY 7 | LIPARI — VULCANO — (1 hr)
DAY 8 | VULCANO — STROMBOLI — (3 hrs)
The playground for these days is the Lipari Island chain. These islands are full of drama and allure. You may spot some active eruptions on Vulcano or enjoy a therapeutic mud bath on Stromboli to name just two of the unique sights you will encounter during your visit to these intriguing islands.
DAY 9 | LIPARI — TAORMINA — (7 hrs)
According to a long seafaring tradition, you may wish to toss a message in a bottle as you pass south through the Straits of Messina — a passage that was fraught with mysticism to the ancient Greeks. The town of Taormina will offer a first taste of the island of Sicily and those who are ready for exploration can take in a side trip to Mount Etna. Your chef can prepare some authentic Sicilian cuisine for your final night of the charter.
