Renting a yacht in Italy is ideal for sea lovers. Thanks to the variety of its islands, bay and beaches, Italy is perfect for every type of vacationer in search of fun, nature, rest and relaxation.

Italy is the country of the sun and sea, picturesque little islands, sunny beaches, unforgettable sunsets, spectacular sea cliffs, exclusive bays, crystal clear seawater and romantic inlets. The Italian sea is a synonym of all this. Thanks to its climate, the perfect period to enjoy your Italy Sailing Charter is from April to October.

Enjoy Italy by yacht

The Italy yacht charter holidays with family or friends to discover an ancient sea, plagued by experienced sailors, an unbelievable heritage. It is chock-full of fishing villages, and coastal cities with sea resorts and day beaches, as well as fishing villages, and is easily reachable by vessels large and small.

From North to South, East to West, this mountainous land slopes into the rocky, indented coasts of the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas in the west, and toward the softer, sandier shores of the Adriatic in the east. From these seas that wash up upon the “beautiful country” surge two magnificent islands – Sicily and Sardinia, worldwide known for its exclusive Porto Cervo – in addition to numerous tiny archipelagos (as Olbia, Cagliari, La Maddalena, Caprera, Carloforte, etc). These include the Tuscan Archipelago, to which Elba belongs; the Archipelago of the Maddalena in Sardinia; the Campanian Archipelago with Ischia and Capri; and finally the Pontine Islands off the southern shores of Lazio. Between the coasts of Tunisia and Sicily, we also find the Pelagian (Lampedusa) and Aeolian Islands embarking in Milazzo – with two active volcanoes, Stromboli and Vulcano – and the Aegadian Islands, a natural reserve. Last but not least, in Puglia, there are the splendid Islands of Tremiti.

    Top Destinations in Italy


    From North to South, from East to West, Italy assures you enchanting and memorable sailing, wherever you go. Let’s now talk about the most famous (and the reasons why they are) spots for yacht charters in Italy:

    • The Amalfi Coast and  Naples , a city with a distinct energy – disorderly yet enchanting, cluttered yet delightful. Rather daunting to the virgin eye, Naples has a way of losing your inhibitions, to present a vibrant and proud culture, with an alluring cordiality. Naples is the gateway to the Amalfi Coast and Capri and the yacht charter hub of southern Italy. The Isle of Capri present a number of the most breathtaking shorelines of the entire Mediterranean Sea.
    • A yacht charter in Sardinia, is rather an experience. It is an island of Italy, where the local language is incomprehensible to any or all other Italians. An isle with one of Europe’s most stunning coastlines; it is waters teem with fish; it is golden sands evaporate into oceans of blue; it is rugged mountains are covered with herds of sheep creating cheese so pungent, your palate will never forget.
