Before embarking on your yacht, why not have a look around Italy's third largest city, Naples. This city is remarkable due to its archaeological treasures; the centro storico (historic centre) that was deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site is absolutely breathtaking, with architectural beauty to be seen everywhere you look! Naples is also a food haven, where you can try some of Italy's best cooking - make sure you try Paccheri con Pesce Spada, a wonderful pasta dish served with swordfish - a local speciality.
After exploring, meet your fantastic crew, get settled and begin the cruise over to Procida, the smallest Island off the mainland and the Bay of Naples' best-kept secret. Dine in one of the seaside restaurants whilst enjoying the wonderful fragrance of nearby lemon groves and admiring the picturesque pastel-coloured houses. Ideal for exploring by foot, wander through the sun-drenched streets before enjoying a sunset aperitif by the Marina Grande.
Enjoy a leisurely morning and after breakfast, why not continue onto the volcanic island of Ischia. Your crew can take you to Castello Aragonese, towering high up on the rocks with spectacular views, or take a trip to the Gardens of La Mortella, originally the property of an English composer. Here you can absorb the stunning surroundings and the clear view over the city and harbour of Forio. In the quaint village of Forio, make sure not to miss the thermal baths which are Ischia’s pride and joy! The volcanic activity provides thermal springs and volcanic mud, to cleanse and relax. In the evening, head to Lacco Ameno to dine at the finest ristorante on the island: Indaco. Situated in the 5 Star Regina Isabella Hotel, in the centre of Lacco Ameno, this is the only place to be for amazing food, atmosphere and luxury.
There is no mad rush to leave this morning, so lounge on the sun pads, take a dip in the warm ocean, try out some of the fantastic onboard water toys, or simply read your book on the couch before departing in the late afternoon. It is time to head to Capri! This should excite any shopaholics in the group, as well as foodies or photographers. The 'Blue Grotto' is a popular attraction where you can get extremely close to the boulders onboard your yacht, then dive off the platform and be dazzled by the water shining a brilliant blue. This stylish Italian destination is increasingly popular due to the boutiques, designer shops, restaurants and lemon trees! Be sure to sample Capri's most famous dishes, such as an Insalata Caprese filled with juicy tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and drizzled with local olive oil! For something sweet, try the flourless, almond and chocolate torta Caprese - sure to go down a treat.
Today proceed to Nerano, a beautiful fishing village situated between Sorrento and Amalfi, and enjoy some time on the Marina del Cantone. Here there is a large beach with beautifully clean and refreshing waters, protected by the mountains and ideal for swimming. All the beachfront restaurants serve the speciality of Nerano, 'spaghetti alla Nerano', so make sure you sample this while you're here!
On your fifth day, venture along to Positano, a chic town with peach and terracotta piled on top of each other; explore steep streets flanked with smart restaurants and fashionable retailers, or simply relax in the harbour aboard your luxury yacht! Dine at the easy-going and unassuming Da Bruno, a restaurant overlooking the town, serving simple dishes southern-Italian style. If you fancy something a bit more glamorous, head to Next2, an alfresco restaurant facing the sea that serves delectable dishes of grilled octopus and fresh pasta! Head onto Fiordo di Furore, a little town with a natural inlet that appears as a crack in the hillside. This peaceful town is perfect to relax as you sit back on your luxury yacht with a sundowner in hand.
Start the day in the town of Amalfi, having a typical Italian breakfast (an espresso and small pastry) in the picturesque piazza and admire the magnificent cathedral there. Then cruise over to the charming coastal towns of Maiori and Minori, which are renowned for their historic architectural masterpieces, and their pasta making! Make sure you try the local speciality of scialatielli ai frutti di mare which are thick ribbons of fresh pasta, served with the freshest seafood.
Enjoy the beautiful cruise over to Sorrento; head up to the flybridge and feel the breeze in your hair whilst sipping on a cool Gin & Tonic, and socialising with your friends and family. Lunch will be at anchor on the way, with the opportunity to have a swim before continuing the journey if you need a refreshing dip. If you want to hop on land, go for it! Explore the cobbled back streets and taste the Gelato at Raki; they have a myriad of flavours, including walnut and honey or vanilla and ginger! Stroll back to your yacht for your final night aboard.
