Along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula sits the sheer cliffs and rugged shoreline of the Amalfi Coast, dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. Your journey takes you along this fabled coastline, with engaging island soirees and overnights in the ancient walled city of Valletta, Malta, and the dramatic natural setting of Amalfi, once the seat of a powerful maritime republic and today known for its terraced gardens and production of limoncello. Discover Gozo Island, with its Neolithic Ggantija Temple ruins, rural hiking paths, beaches, and scuba-diving sites and the Aeolian Island of Lipari, part of a volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea named after Aeolus, the demigod of the winds. Your journey then takes you beyond to the best-little known Italian towns--engaging destinations like Ponza, Porto Santo Stefano, and Portofino--before concluding in the French Riviera resort towns of Antibes and Nice.

  • Amalfi
    Amalfi

    Amalfi is a picturesque town in the province of Salerno, in the Campania region of Italy. With its incredible views, it is the central town that makes up the very famous and UNESCO awarded Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana). Amalfi sports some impressive medieval architecture including; its cathedral of Sant'Andrea (St. Andrew), the church tower, the convent of the Cappuccini, founded by the Amalfitan Cardinal Pietro Capuano. They richly represent the artistic movement prevailing in Southern Italy. From Amalfi, we have created two exciting land adventures for you.

  • Portofino
    Portofino

    The picturesque fishing village of Portofino can be found along the Italian Riviera, and is one of the most popular resort getaways in all of Italy. Portofino has been a staple of tourism in Italy since the 19th century, officially replacing fishing as its chief industry in 1950. Portofino is twinned with Kinsale, Ireland, and Palma (de Mallorca), Spain. Roman philosopher and military commander Pliny the Elder declared that Portofino was founded by the Romans, and with the high concentration of dolphins found in the Tigullian Gulf, it was named the “Port of the Dolphin” - Portus Delphini. Portofino was primarily a member of the Republic of Genoa in early days, and never provided more than a resting area for the merchant navy due to its naturally cramped harbor. The Republic of Florence purchased Portofino in 1409 from French King Charles VI, yet returned when the Florentines were ousted. Portofino became a part of the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1815, and during Risorgimento, it became a member of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. Aristocratic visitors from Northern Europe began visiting the town in the 19th century, leading to eventual vacation homes and celebrities appearing in Portofino. Portofino is naturally beautiful port with colorful, iconic architecture that was even replicated as a hotel resort at the Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando. The Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan also created a seaside town based on Portofino. Tourists like to visit the museum Castello Brown, which provides a great view of the town, as well as the churches of St. Martin, Oratorio di Nostra Signora Assunta, and St. George - the latter containing some relics of saints. When visiting Portofino, be sure to take a guided dive to the Portofino Marine Park, as well as take a glimpse at the recently restored famous underwater statue, the Christ of the Abyss.

  • Antibes
    Antibes

    Historians indicate that Antibes was the first town founded by the Greeks on the Riviera coast. For a very long time, Antibes was the only town between Marseille and Italy. The temples, monuments and an immense 3500 seat amphitheater bear testimony to its ancient origins. Much of the protecting walls have remained intact including Fort Carre, which is one of the most beautiful examples of military architecture in Europe. Today the port is taken over by an incredible array of mega yachts. The historic town center is full of pretty squares and narrow streets, ideal for wandering and people-watching. Make sure you check out the cathedral and the old ramparts. Nearby Cap d'Antibes, there is a small peninsula of paradise, you can visit it by taking the sign-posted path following the coastline. The famous "Eden Roc" hotel is at the point of the "Cap". Ask one of the officers to lead a crew shoreside casual hike – you will not be disappointed. If that isn’t appealing, we are certain one of the organized land adventure will be.

  • Nice
    Nice

    Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the second largest on the Mediterranean coast. The city's famous seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais ('the Walkway of the English') owes its name to the earliest settlers to this seaside resort.

  • Amalfi - NAT GEO DAY TOUR: A Deep Dive into Ancient Roman Life: Oplontis and Pompeii

    Description

Marvel at still-standing UNESCO-protected forums, theaters, baths, restaurants and more! You’ll also learn about lesser-known sites, such as Casa della Regina Carolina, where researchers are studying the daily domestic activities of the Roman people.

    Begin your journey, by boat, to the small port city of Torre Annunziata, where you’ll leave bustling roads and concrete facades behind as you descend below street level to ancient Oplontis. As a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, the area and its two sprawling villas boast some of the best-preserved wall paintings of the Roman period.

    Your guide—an expert archeologist—will offer historical, cultural, and architectural context for the painted wonders around you. Marvel at tiled mosaics and floor-to-ceiling frescos finished in the Pompeiian style with deep azure blues, bright oranges, and sunny golds. As you explore recently reconstructed halls and columned atriums, you’ll discover three-dimensional painted landscapes next to still-life scenes rendered by artists thousands of years ago.

    Continue a short distance away to the foothills of Mt. Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompeii, an ancient city preserved by volcanic eruption. After a quick lunch, wander down cobblestone streets to the Forum, where Romans discussed politics, sold their wares and gathered for worship. Follow ancient paths to grand spaces like the House of the Faun with its rich mosaics and green gardens. Sit in the arena of the Theater and study the colossal columns of the Basilica. You’ll also visit areas of everyday life like the baths, taverns and the Thermopolium, where Romans brought their families for quick bites.

  • Amalfi - Uncover Ancient Pompeii

    Description

    Discover the ancient ruins of Pompeii and find out how the Ancient Romans lived and worked this informative guided tour. A flourishing civilization buried for 1,700 years, Pompeii is possibly the most famous excavation site in the world. Brought to life by your guide, now you can see how citizens of the greatest empire of the world lived and loved, worked and played, ate and drank—and met their fateful death.

    Your journey begins as you travel from Amalfi through mountain roads toward Pompeii while admiring Mount Vesuvius, the still-active historic volcano located 15 miles southeast of Naples. Entering Pompeii by foot at the Sea Gate you are soon in the Agorà, surrounded by temples, porticoes, and law courts.

    20,000 people lived in this provincial town, of whom 2,000 perished in the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Twenty feet of ashes and pumice stone covered Pompeii, much of which has been removed during the last 200 years to reveal details of everyday life. The mosaic floors and the brilliant frescoes that so delighted the Pompeians shine forth in all their undiminished glory. Explore baths and theaters, the wrestling ground, and luxurious villas and gardens, complete with plaster casts of the locals at the moment of Vesuvius’s eruption. At the end of your experience, reboard your coach for the drive back to Amalfi where you are welcomed back on board your yacht.

    Notes

    There is free time at the end of this excursion to have a quick snack at Pompeii. Due to possible traffic delays, your return to the yacht may be after lunch; however, there is 24-hour meal service at the bar. After the Global Pandemic and tourism shutdown, we are experiencing higher than normal tourists in these popular destinations during the peak season (June, July, and August).

  • Porto Santo Stefano - Wine Estate and Wine Tasting

    Description

    Discover the prestigious wines of the Maremma region on this Yachting Land Adventure to a famous wine estate in Tuscany.

    Board a vehicle and drive through the Maremma landscape to reach the famous wine resort, Val Delle Rose Winery which is nestled between the Maremma hills and the plains of the Tuscan coastline. There is a garden vineyard and boutique Cantina producing beautifully crafted wines, made with passion and authenticity with the expertise of their winemaker.

    Since 1893, the Cecchi family and brand has been synonymous with viticulture, both in Italy and worldwide. Cecchi considers protecting the environment a duty for those who work in the agricultural field. Territories are to be considered a heritage that must be defended and respected. Thus, for this winery, the word “sustainability” takes on a true and hard-working character, driven by two well-defined policies: on one hand, the safeguard and improvement of the company, agricultural and environmental heritage; on the other hand, the reclamation and employment of new technologies that, moreover, allow the minimization of both energy consumption and natural resources necessary during production. At the time of its acquisition, Val delle Rose consisted of 25 hectares under vines. The Family carried out a small farming revolution, which went not only to improve the agricultural techniques but also the wine-ageing ones. With the enormous potential of the terroir, the company extended the land under vines up to about 100 hectares. Here, the star varietal is Sangiovese, and you will have the opportunity of tasting this and other vintages with nibbles from this famous wine resort on your Yachting Land Adventure.
