The 7 Day Amore Amalfi Itinerary
Day 1 – Naples to Ischia
Benvenuti a Napoli! Welcome to Naples!
Here you are at the heart of the Italian Dolce Vita…Naples. Early arrival and transfer to your yacht in the port of Naples. After settling in and refreshment on board, head out to explore the vibrant and cultural pearl of the Italian South. Take a stroll through the colourful streets of this lively city and experience Italy and the Italians as they are, impulsive, hospitable and full of joy for life.
Our recommendations to spend the day:
National Archaeological Museum of Naples – A wonderful collection of sculptures, art and history. Room by room of a journey guided by beautiful works of art. A definite must-see.
Galleria Borbonica – A magnificent historic tour of the cisterns and underground secrets of Naples
Stop at a local Trattoria for lunch, as it is said that Italy’s best Pizza is made in Napoli. Continue your discovery tour through town and get soaked in by the Italian ‘dolce far niente’…the sweetness of not doing anything, while heading back to your yacht.
Enjoy a sundowner in the bay of Naples as the yacht lifts its anchor and sails towards your next destination- Ischia.
A delicious Italian dinner prepared by the chef will be served on the aft deck. Indulge in Italian wines, music and flavours.

Day 2 – Ischia
Buongiornio Ischia. Start your day with a savoury breakfast on board anchored off the coast of Ischia. This beautiful island and preferred tourist destination offers many options for you to spend an extraordinary day.
Either you decided to stay on board and take the opportunity for sunbathing and using the water toys in the crystal clear bay or you take the tender ashore to explore what Ischia has to offer.
With its history and culture, but also its well known hot springs and spas due to volcanic activity, Ischia provides the perfect day for every taste. If you are interested in history, you might want to visit the Castello Aragonese, high above the city, which offers a breathtaking view or take a stroll through the Gardens of La Mortella. If you visit the picturesque village of Forio, make sure not to miss Ischia’s soothing spas that have a cleansing and relaxing effect on body and soul because of their thermal springs and volcanic mud.

Lunch in town in a traditional Trattoria is a must and enlivens all senses. In the afternoon head back to the yacht and indulge yourself in an afternoon of tranquillity on board. Soak up the warm rays of the sun on the aft deck with a view on the coast of Ischia.
As the sun approaches the horizon and dips the scenery and sky into warm, earthy tones, you will find yourself observing this magnificent spectacle from onboard the yacht enjoying a cocktail while the vessel slowly pulls out of the bay onward to your next destination – the extraordinary coast of Amalfi and its highlight Pompei.
Day 3 – Ischia to Amalfi
Today bow to a fascinating history! Early breakfast on board and preferred early arrival at Pompeii, the number one reason one should visit the Amalfi Coast. You will find it more comforting to visit this historical world heritage site in the early hours of the day, as it can get very hot during the day. Even for non-history fans, this visit is a must. History was written here in 79 A.D. when the almighty volcano Vesuvius erupted and buried the entire city of Pompeii, Herculaneum and surrounding villages under a thick layer of lava and ashes. To be conserved for centuries and for you to discover now. Walk through the ancient Pompeian roads lined with buildings almost entirely preserved and feel the spirit of this place which still lingers within the walls, columns and mosaics until today. If you embrace your senses, you may even still hear the vibrant scenes of old market days, Gladiator games in the amphitheatre, merchants shouting in Latin or the cries for help when the people of this once glorious and prosperous city got overwhelmed by the volcanic force of the Vesuvius.
A day for the books.
After a memorable journey back in time, return to the yacht and relax at sundown with a well-deserved refreshment prepared for you by the chef.
Dinner on board and overnight in the bay off the beautiful Amalfi Coast.
