ITALIAN RIVIERA 7 DAYS
DAY 1 | Porto Ercole
What could be a better choice than to begin your Roman holiday by flying into Leonardo da Vinci airport and dashing by car to Port Ercole where your yacht is waiting to greet you for your first day of charter! While you are settling into your staterooms, the crew will toss the lines ashore and cruise a short distance to the perfect anchorage for an afternoon swim in crystal Mediterranean waters.
DAY 2 | Porto Ercole – Castiglione Della Pescaia (3 hrs)
The sights from the deck during today’s cruise will be delightful as the yacht cruises north along Italy’s heavily wooded coastline. An enchanting destination for the day’s voyage is a visit to the charming fishing port of Castiglione Della Peschia. Relax after your gourmet dinner to enjoy a peaceful evening at anchor.
DAY 3 | Castiglione Della Pescaia — Elba (2 hrs 30 mins)
Today’s destination is the island of Elba, which will offer another perspective of the Italian maritime culture. Your captain can arrange a variety of activities ashore based upon your group’s preference. During another night at anchor you may choose to view a movie from the yacht’s extensive on board film library.
DAY 4 | Elba – Porto Ferrrio
For a c and hange from all the quiet isolation, this day can include a venture to Porto Ferrario where you can enjoy the historical culture during a tour of Napoleon’s palace and museum.

DAY 6 | Portofino – Sanremo (7 hrs 30 mins)
Continued exploration of the charming area of la Spezia is on this day’s agenda. Sipping a cold glass of Pinot Grigio from local Santa Margherita’s wineries will be the perfect complement to luncheon on board your yacht, or in a charming cafe in Rapallo or Sestri Levanti. Later in the day, the captain will chart a course for Sanremo, the flower capital of the Italian Riviera.
DAY 7 | Portofino — Nice (10 hrs)
