Highlights
  • Step back in time among Amalfi's olive groves, ancient villages and medieval architecture. This town retains a rustic charm, and you’ll have plenty of time to explore before you set sail.
  • Discover the holiday destination of Roman emperors – the idyllic city of Capri. Let the isle’s history captivate you as you spend the day exploring with your small group.
  • With its pastel buildings and tranquil marina, mooring colourful Procida is ideal for relaxation by the sea with an aperitif – or exploring on foot and finding the best photo spot.
  • Explore the caves of Capri’s Grotta Azzura (the Blue Grotto) and swim daily in the glittering waters of the Mediterranean. Then, spend every night falling asleep to the gentle rock of waves on board your group’s yacht.
  • When you’re not watching the sunset on deck or exploring the coastal towns akin to paradise, you’ll be eating! With delicious regional cuisine and local, freshly caught seafood every day, you definitely won’t go hungry in Italy.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Cooperativa Coraggio. Donations help them regenerate 22 hectares of unused public land to create local jobs and produce organic food in Italy.

Itinerary

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 - Amalfi
Benvenuto! Welcome to Italy. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 1 pm in Amalfi today. After stopping by the local supermarket with your group leader to pick up supplies for your sail, the rest of the day is yours to discover Amalfi. With your free time, you could check out the medieval architecture of Sant' Andrea Cathedral and Cappuccini Convent. You may 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. This evening, why not join an optional dinner with your group and feast on local seafood and gelato? Tonight will be your first night on board the boat.
Day 2 - 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 3 - Forio, Ischia
This morning after breakfast, leave Capri and set sail toward Forio, in the north of Ischia Island. Ischia is a volcanic island in the Gulf of Naples, known for its mineral-rich thermal waters and hot springs. 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 dinner options, so you can find exactly what you’re in the mood for.
Day 4 - Procida
This morning after breakfast, you’ll sail towards the island of Procida. Stop for a swim along the way, arriving in colourful Procida 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 you can 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 5 - 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. **Got extra time?
