Italian Riviera

The Italian Riviera offers a relaxed and enchanting experience, perhaps because of its history inspiring some of Italy’s most famous artists. The rugged coastline dotted with villages, cliffs and multi-coloured architecture is a sight to behold from a yacht.  


Venice is a city that’s surrounded by so much water, so being afloat on a yacht vacation is a fantastic way to experience this classic Mediterranean city. Venice is one of the most romantic cities in the world, with its intricate web of canals, charming gondoliers, glorious renaissance architecture and narrow cobbled streets. Venice is an essential stop on any Adriatic yacht charter holiday. On your charter boat, take a cruise down the Grand Canal. From the deck, you’ll be able to pass by sights such as the Ca'Foscari, Palazzo Grassi, Guggenheim Museum and the Accademia Bridge. You may want to spend an afternoon shopping, then stop in Harry’s bar, the birthplace of the Bellini, for a true taste of Venice. Seafood is a staple in Venetian cuisine. Enjoy a meal at Osteria Boccadoro or one of the city’s oldest trattorias, Antiche Carampane to get your fill of traditional fare.


Naples & Capri

Naples, the extraordinary metropolis of art, music, colour and cuisine all existing in the shadow of the towering Mount Vesuvius. Its centro storico (historic centre) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city has a distinct energy - chaotic yet charming, cluttered yet beautiful.

This jewel of the Gulf of Naples is famously chic and has attracted the rich and famous from Roman emperors to supermodels and movie stars.  

Three limestone caves are available to you: The Blue Grotto, the Green Grotto and the White Grotto, a spectacular sight when the light reflects from beneath the water. 

The beautiful Gardens of Augustus overlook the Via Krupp hairpin bends and the serene coast. There are also other great caves for Scuba divers to gain their skills.

Cruise through the Bay of Naples to the island of Ischia. Ischia is the largest island in the bay and is considered by many to be the most beautiful. Visit the boutiques and restaurants around the small fishing village of San Angelo, and unwind in the thermal spas of this volcanic island. 

Visit the spectacular subtropical and mediterranean garden La Mortella.


Famous and spectacular, Positano, like the legendary Sirens of Li Galli, never fails to seduce. Seen from the sea, Positano is set in a dramatic vertical panorama of colours; the green of the Monti Lattari, the white, pink, and yellow of the Mediterranean houses; the silvery grey of its pebble beaches; and the blue of the sea. 

Spiaggia Grande is the heart of Positano's waterfront. Those looking for a more peaceful spot in which to bask in the Mediterranean sun will love Positano's Fornillo beach.

Celebrated as Italy’s most beautiful coastline, the Amalfi Coast encompasses spectacular scenery, charming coastal villages and pretty beaches which are ideal for a relaxing and indulgent luxury charter vacation. The combination of history, culture, art and wonderful food has long made this region popular with discerning travellers. 


The tiny and sublimely elegant fishing village of Portofino has long attracted the yacht set to its picturesque harbour and collection of exclusive designer boutiques and fantastic restaurants carved into the steep rock face. Relaxing amongst the colour splashed architecture of the beautiful piazza in an Italian café is the perfect way to start your luxury yacht charter vacation in style. 

Cinque Terre

The five unspoilt villages of Cinque Terre make up a UNESCO protected national park, nestled in the hills of the Italian Riviera, are undoubtedly the highlight of any visit to northern Italy. The World Heritage Site’s each hamlet provides an exhilarating composition of heart-stirring vistas between vineyard covered cliffs.


Sardinia has a wild interior and a glamorous coastline. Porto Cervo is the undisputed capital of the Costa Smeralda. Choose from a multitude of designer stores and chic boutiques in the town, and afterwards head to the prestigious restaurants and fashionable clubs which are at the centre of the coast's nightlife.

The bay of Cala di Volpe is one of the most famous and luxurious spots on the Costa Smeralda. The sparkling coastline is fringed with beaches and clear waters and has many ideal anchorages for water sports.  

The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda is an icon of the sailing world and a cocktail on its roof terrace is an experience not to be missed.  
If in Sardinia in June, take part in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta held at the Yacht Club.  

The Madellena islands is an unspoiled marvel of the Mediterranean. This scatter of seven large islands and 60 tiny isolotti has some of the most spectacular beaches in Italy and some of the clearest lagoons. Turquoise waters, unspoilt beaches with barely a footprint. Many of the beaches are only accessible by boat, giving you the exclusivity and tranquillity you deserve.
