ITINERARY CHANGES Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It's important that you review this information prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays, political unrest or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in-country. Your group leader or local representative will keep you up to date with any such changes once your trip is underway. For sailing trips the itinerary will be subject to change depending on weather conditions. Your skipper will make the final decision to ensure safety at all times. Generally daily sailing time would not exceed 6 hours. Please note that we will endeavour to sail at all times but there may be times during the trip that we will use the sails and motor or just the motor. During the summer months in Europe, we are unable to pre-book a mooring berth at the marinas. Therefore, depending on availability, the place we stay the night may not be as per the advertised itinerary.

Day 1 - Procida - Ischia
Benvenuto! Welcome to Italy. Your trip begins in Procida – the tiny, colourful island off the coast of Naples. If you have spare time this morning, maybe explore the city, see the walled medieval town of Terra Murata or the charming port of Corricella. Start with a group meeting at 3 pm, then head to the local supermarket to buy supplies for your trip as a group. Sail the short distance to Ischia. In contrast to Procida, it’s the largest island in the Bay of Naples. Disembark and shake off the sea legs by exploring the famous Castello Aragonese, built in the 1400s. This impressive fortress sits suspended above the sea on a volcanic rock connected to Ischia. Tonight, ask your skipper for the best dinner spots and maybe head out with your group before spending your first night at sea.
Day 2 - Ischia - Sorrento
Spend the first part of your day today in idyllic Ischia. Ischia is a volcanic island in the Gulf of Naples, known for its mineral-rich thermal waters and hot springs. Maybe you’d like to visit Spiaggia dei Pescatori – an idyllic beach nestled between Ischia Porto and Ischia Ponte. This afternoon, set sail for Sorrento. This coastal town offers panoramic views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Once you arrive, it’ll be easy to see why this is a popular tourist destination in Italy. Tonight, you’ll have the opportunity to try one of Sorrento's well-known exports – Limoncello. This a liqueur produced from locally grown Femminello Santa Teresa lemons – yum!
Day 3 - Sorrento - Pompeii
Today after breakfast, you’ll have the option to visit the abandoned city of Pompeii – a Roman settlement that was frozen in time when Mount Vesuvius erupted. Well-preserved buildings, artwork and pottery offer a glimpse into the lives of the ancient Romans. There’s also an option to hire a private guide for the ruins, as the site could easily be explored over an entire day (the additional cost of a private guide will be split between the group). Another possible activity is a visit to Mount Vesuvius National Park – if you choose this activity, you’ll have a half-hour local bus and a walk at 1200 m above sea level. Ensure you have warm clothes, a rain jacket and plenty of sun protection.
Day 4 - Sorrento - Amalfi
This morning you’ll set sail for the Amalfi Coast, passing the Sirenusas (Gallos) archipelago to the east of the Sorrentine Peninsula. Some travellers may leave the trip when you arrive, and others may join. You’ll have a second welcome meeting at 1 pm and then head to the local supermarket with your new group to pick up supplies for the next leg. The afternoon is free to explore Amalfi. You could check out the medieval architecture of Sant'Andrea Cathedral and Cappuccini Convent. You may also like to walk along the narrow trails through olive groves, vineyards and ancient villages. While the trails are steep and full of stairs, there are spectacular views over the ocean at regular intervals. Why not join an optional dinner with your group this evening and feast on local seafood and gelato?
Day 5 - Amalfi - Capri
Today, set sail to the Isle of Capri – once home to the magnificent holiday palaces of the Roman emperors. After you arrive in Capri, there is an optional excursion in a small motorboat to circumnavigate the Isle of Capri. View the island and its impressive cliffs and many grottos – including the green, white and famous Blue Grotto. To enter the Blue Grotto, you'll need to switch to a smaller rowboat, and although swimming in the grotto isn’t permitted, there’s a small platform close by where you can take a dip. After, there will be time to catch the bus to the Town of Capri or visit the hillside town of Anacapri. If you head there, it's worth visiting the Villa San Michele – the former home to a Swedish doctor that's built on the ruins of a Roman villa. Make your way to Capri Town by the Phoenician Steps (Scala Fenicia), a long, steep stairway linking the towns of Capri and Anacapri. A moderate fitness level and comfortable shoes are required if you decide to climb the steps. 
Day 6 - Forio, Ischia
This morning after breakfast, leave Capri and set sail toward Forio, in the north of Ischia Island. Along the way, stop for a swim in the idyllic waters and arrive in Forio in the afternoon. Tonight, you’re free to explore this little paradise on foot or partake in one of the optional activities your skipper recommends. As this is the most populated town on the island, there are lots of little restaurants and delicious spots to eat – your skipper will also know all the best dining options, so you can find exactly what you’re in the mood for.  
Day 7 - Procida
This morning after breakfast, you’ll sail back to Procida. Stop for a swim along the way, arriving by the afternoon. Enjoy a free afternoon to explore the beautiful town on foot – chase the perfect photo, people watch at a café or visit the Palazzo d’Avalos, the island’s former prison. Tonight, sail to the main marina, stopping along the way at Marina Della Carricella to see one of the most photographed parts of the island. Then perhaps enjoy an optional group dinner in the town of rabbit stew or seafood, accompanied by a couple of glasses of local wine and some Limoncello. What better way to cap off a great sailing trip? 
Day 8 - Procida
There are no activities planned for today, so you’re free to leave any time after breakfast. If you wish to spend more time here, just speak to your booking agent.
