The Amalfi Coast

probably the most beautiful coastline in the world

From one of our two bases in Salerno and the Island of Procida you will be able to set off on a sailing holiday along  the stunning Amalfi coast, and the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida. The sailing area is relatively compact, so you can spend as much time as you like either sailing, swimming, sunbathing and chilling in a gorgeous inlet or visiting the wonderful historic towns that characterize this area.

On a typical one-week’s cruise, your skipper will take you to visit:

The beautiful Amalfi Coast where 1300mt., lush, tree-covered mountains plunge straight into the deep-blue sea and the gorgeous little seafront towns huddle into the gorges and valleys. Amalfi: The “capital” of the Amalfi coast, is the highpoint of any sailing holiday in Southern Italy. This beautiful town is a mixture of history, tradition, superb Campania cuisine, pretty shops and stunning views. From here, your skipper will also take you on a trip to Ravello, where, if you like, you can hear a concert at the famous Ravello Festival at Villa Rufolo or just simply admire what is regarded as the most beautiful view in the world.
