Italy, the Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast has been a teeming centre of multiple human civilisations over the course of centuries. The precipitous slopes of its beautiful coastline, along with the charming towns that seem to hang off them, and its rich cuisine have always proved an irresistible attraction. Today its glorious natural environment and unique cultural heritage make it highly popular with summer yacht charters.
There is a lot to see on the Amalfi Coast. The remarkable city of Naples is curious, fascinating and inspiring. As Veronica Etro said about Naples: ‘Everything here is unique – the food, the people, the places, the traditions – it’s a world of its own.’
The elegant and refined island of Capri and the more sleepy Ischia, with its spas and springs, offer more of a riviera charm, glamour and relaxation. Positano, down the coast from Naples, is enchanting with its dramatic cliff views, wonderful art and crafts and fantastic choice of restaurants. Taken as a whole, the Amalfi Coast provides a great backdrop for a yacht charter. If you board in Naples, Capri is a good first stop.
Back on the mainland, those who brave the narrow, winding coastal road, will discover the many hidden treasures of the terraced towns and villages along the way. Ravello, with its medieval streets and byways, is one of those charming places. You can also visit the remains of Pompeii, further inland, which is one of the most remarkable archeological sites in the world. Further south, there is Sorrento with its distant views of Mount Vesuvius. If you want to head south, visiting the Aeolian Islands and Sicily can easily be incorporated into an itinerary focused on the Amalfi coast.
Beautiful and intoxicating, Italy’s glamorous Amalfi Coast remains as popular as ever.
