A 7 day luxury yacht charter from Naples to Rome.
Day 1: At midday, the crew of your luxury yacht will be in the Port of Napoli (Naples) waiting to welcome you onboard. Spend an hour cruising slowly down the coast to Positano. From the water, you get the best view ever of Positano and the incredible engineering genius of the architecture. Enjoy lunch onboard the yacht under anchor from the aft deck with this magnificent backdrop.
After lunch, go ashore and spend the afternoon exploring the myriad of streets and shops of Positano. Move around to the port of Amalfi for the evening.
Day 2: If you’re interested in scenic beauty and culture, you may wish to take a half day tour up to Ravello.
The slow uphill drive along a very narrow road passing several vineries and olive factories etc, leads to Ravello, a rural village unspoilt by tourism, perched on top of the mountain cliff situated above Amalfi and Minori. Ravello, being famous for its breath-taking views, natural beauty and ancient monuments are presented at their best in the gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. In high season, these gardens are rich in sweet secants of blooming flowers, shadows of flora and perfume of lemons.
Apart from the main cathedral, also situated in the square, and a history museum constructed in the basement of the cathedral, there are many other churches to visit given that there used to be a total of over 13 churches in the village. Along the narrow arcade of Via Roma one will find a few small boutiques, and scattered around the vicinity are some traditional local restaurants with a cuisine quite different from those close to the sea; CumpÓ Cosimo, Da Salvatore, Villa Maria, Villa Amore, etc, are all exceptional.
Alternatively, enjoy relaxing late breakfast onboard the charter yacht and explore a little of the cobbled streets of Amalfi before heading off to the world famous Island of Capri.
Docked right in the middle of the action, Capri Port is both charming and elegant. Perhaps a late lunch at Hotel Quisisana (one of Europe’s top 50 hotels) is on the agenda
today. La colombaia at Hotel Quisisana serves lunch around the pool. It is relaxed yet formal and they serve international cuisine with a Mediterranean flavour
Explore the town, but make sure to stop at a cafÚ and enjoy the “see and be seen” life that defines life on Capri. This evening, you may wish to enjoy Da Paolino Restaurant (also known as the Lemon tree) or Villa Verde in the centre of Capri village as casual dining options.
Day 3: The early risers may wish to take the luxury yacht's tender to explore the famous Blue Grotto. A perfect blue hole nestled in a cave. Don’t leave it too late though otherwise
you’ll be smothered in tourist boats. Leave the port but not Capri and cruise around to the sheltered anchorage at Ana Capri. Some may wish to head ashore to explore some of
the sites of Capri or take a gondola ride up the hillside for spectacular panoramic views of the area. Return to the yacht for a long lunch at anchor. Spend the afternoon relaxing in the sun on
your charter yacht; swimming; playing on the toys or snoozing. Your crew will take you ashore in the tender for an evening out. Tonight you might like to try L'Olivo - in the hotel Capri Palace in
Anacapri. They serve a fusion between international and Mediterranean cuisine.
Day 4: Enjoy breakfast at anchor and a swim before departing for the small island of Procida. This is a volcanic island with great natural beauty and a rugged coastline. Upon entering Procida’s harbour it’s possible to admire the port in all its splendid - a kaleidoscope of colours and embattled mansions. Spend some time exploring the port town
Day 5: After breakfast, cruise to the island of Ischia - very famous for its healing spa waters. One of the best is Negombo in the town of Lacco Ameno.

This evening, head out to Restaurant ‘Umberto a mare’ in Forio.

Anchor off in one of the beautiful bays surrounding the island. Enjoy a relaxed day of swimming and snorkeling in these blue, clear waters. Get the crew to take you for an exploratory trip around the coast to explore some of the wonderful caves and deserted forts nestled around the island.
After lunch, head into the tiny port of Ponza. Go ashore and stroll through the ancient cobbled streets before heading out this evening for a traditional fresh seafood meal at a
