In honor of the opening of our brand new base in Venice, we thought we would reinvigorate your senses with a recap of our current bases on Sicily, Naples and Sardinia. Our Facebook community even voted Italy into their top 10 must-see destinations for 2019. We know where we’re going this summer.
- Sicily – flavor and culture
Sicily is a melting pot of Mediterranean culture and one of Europe’s most alluring sailing destinations. Once praised by poets like Homer and Virgil, the island’s terra cotta walls, zesty flavors and dramatic landscape make it one of our favorite spots for spoiling the senses.Sicilian cuisine is a mixture of the city’s Arab, Byzantine, and Norman past. More than simple Italian dishes, you will sample pastas, olive oils and seafood that are typically mixed with raisins and saffron. Scented lemon trees dot the island, adding freshness to an afternoon stroll through the city.Leave our base in Portorosa to explore the Aeolian archipelago north of Sicily, home to two active volcanoes, Stromboli and Vulcano, and seven inhabited islands now part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. The islands play host to black-sand beaches and rocky coastline trails.Browse our Sicily fleet for a look at luxury bareboat or skippered charter options.
- Naples – history and elegance
Naples is a masterpiece of museums, opera and innovation.The city’s vibrant art scene begins with the Museo di Capodimonte art gallery, home to works from 12th-century altarpieces to modern day Warhol. Top off your day with an elegant evening at the Teatro San Carlo opera house, the oldest operating theater in Europe.Discover traces of ancient civilizations at The National Archaeological Museum, which holds Graeco-Roman collections and artifacts from Pompeii.Depart from our base in Pozzuoli (if you don’t fall in love with the city first) and sail the Amalfi coast, Capri and the stunning nearby islands.
