Italy is such a special location because of its long, rich history of culture, fashion, art, architecture, food and wine, for the natural beauty of its mountains, vineyards, coastlines and beaches, for its glamorous shopping and supercars, and, of course, an almost unlimited supply of amazing restaurants. All of this, along with the practical requirements of ease of access, friendly people, personal safety, and modern conveniences make it a location that has much to offer those seeking a yachting vacation.

I think Italy is so special because it truly has something to offer everyone. Whether you are seeking a romantic honeymoon, a family vacation, or a holiday with a few of your closest friends, Italy can provide exactly what you’re looking for.
An Italian yacht vacation means access to one of the most beautiful coastlines in the Mediterranean with an array of different vistas and experiences depending on where in Italy you choose to go. For example, if you’re looking for natural beauty combined with a more cosmopolitan experience, you should consider a charter starting in Sicily, and then onward through the World Heritage listed Aeolian Islands with a few nights in the bay of Naples. Here you’ll find the famous Island of Capri and the stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast. Or, perhaps, you prefer Portofino, located in Northern Italy, as part of a charter along the French Riviera, the beautiful Costa Esmeralda as part of a Corsica-to-Sardinia itinerary, or even venture to the eastern shores of Italy into the Adriatic Sea, which includes Venice and Croatia.
Whether you are a foodie that simply wants to try some of the world’s best restaurants, a history buff that loves to visit 1000-year-old churches and ruins, a family looking for adventure along the wild coastlines and live volcanoes of Sicily, or you’re just planning to take in some water sports before hitting some of the world’s most famous bars and restaurants for a night of partying, Italy offers it all.
