Southwest Italy is a haven of tradition, far from the tourist traps in Rome and the more heavily cruised Riviera. If your idea of paradise is Italy at its natural best, then the Amalfi Coast is the destination you want to visit during your next yacht charter vacation.
Steep, rocky hillsides run along the Amalfi Coast like a picture frame atop the clear blue sea. Click here for a walking tour of Amalfi. The vistas are majestic from your charter yacht, which allows you to see far more of the region than any land tour ever possibly could. Many charter yachts offer the chance to enjoy the view from a sundeck hot tub at sunset, when the scenery becomes breathtakingly beautiful.
An occasional town appears at the base of harbors that time has carved from stone, offering an inlet for your charter yacht to anchor or dock. Adorable, historic homes and shops await you onshore, where you can meander along twisting, winding, narrow stone streets and simply take in the scenery. Family-run cafes offer espresso and limoncello liqueur, which is a specialty of the region. To sit at an outdoor café and people-watch while sipping your favorite drink is to enjoy a true sliver of heaven.
The high season on the Amalfi Coast is July and August, and top charter yachts are currently booking their prime weeks. Now is the time to reserve your dates if you would like to experience the Amalfi Coast’s natural pleasures this summer.
