Roman emperors came to pass their twilight years here. For writers, artists and composers, it acted as a muse. Europe and America’s social elite visited in droves throughout the 1950s and 1960s, seeking ‘la dolce vita’. Beyond this reputation as a pleasure ground, southwest Italy’s Amalfi Coast is all about the landscapes.
The Amalfi Coast is the stretch of Italian coastline synonymous with beauty, historic charm and romance. Drawing people to its shores since Roman times, the Amalfi Coast has thrived on a successful history of maritime trade, wealthy nobility, the notions of myths and legends and has since achieved the celebrated status as a World Heritage Site. An Amalfi Coast crewed yacht charter will let you explore the scenic beauty and pastel-coloured fishermen’s houses that tumble down into the gorgeous blue bays.
The Italians love this part of their country, and as it is their holiday destination you know it must be an unrivalled part of the country.
The Amalfi Coast is steeped in sailing tradition with Capri and Positano the most distinguished port towns. There is nothing better than anchoring in a secluded bay protected by huge cliffs towering above. There is no better time to explore southern Italy with your friends and family. Sicily is another popular yacht destination as you have the magical Aeolian Islands nearby which are waiting to be discovered.
For those who enjoy performance sailing, the Regatta of the Ancient Maritime Republics occurs every year, usually in June. It rotates between the ancient Italian Maritime Republics of Amalfi, Genoa, Pisa and Venice under the patronage of the Italian Republic President. The competition is preceded by a historical procession with actors dressed in the characteristic clothes of the different Republics.
The rocky and rugged Amalfi Coast creates many natural, scenic and well-protected harbours, ideal for yachting holiday vacations and charters. The mild year-round climate means that chartering here is suitable at any time of the year with sailing conditions pleasantly relaxing and easy-going. The best sailing conditions for Amalfi Coast Yacht Charters are between Capri and Positano.
