Yacht Itinerary from Cannes to Naples – 9 Days Cruising

Day 1 -> Cannes – Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat (one hour of navigation)

Are you ready to embark on this journey from the city known for its festival? The Old Port and the New Port that surround the Croisette bay are the refuges of your sumptuous charter yacht waiting for you, ready to leave with the crew on board.

The night berth will be in the exclusive port of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.


Day 2 -> Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat – Beaulieu-sur-mer – Monaco (1 hour and 15 minutes)

During the morning, sail to Beaulieu-sur-Mer, a charming village surrounded by palm trees and architecture reminiscent of the styles of the Belle Époque. You can enjoy the sun or practice various water sports on its beaches: Plage des Fourmis with its retro-style harbor and Petite Afrique framed by the mountains. In the afternoon you can take a short cruise to Monaco where you can have dinner and stop for the night mooring.


Day 3 -> Monaco – Portofino – Santa Margherita – Rapallo (3 hours and 40 minutes)

Your catamaran offers all the comforts for long navigation to the beautiful Portofino, located in Liguria, where the pastel colors of the houses overlook one of the most famous harbors in the world.
