Cruise along the incredible Amalfi Coast departing from Procida

Set sail across the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean on an Amalfi Coast Sailing adventure. Cast off from the oldest island in the Bay of Naples, Procida, which has featured in a number of films thanks to its pastel-coloured houses and quaint, atmospheric streets. Explore the medieval fortress Castello Aragonese near the vibrant island of Ischia and bathe in ocean hot springs. View original artefacts from Pompeii at the Archeological Museum in Naples before roaming through the 2,000-year-old city itself, and end the adventure on a high – on a cliff top in Amalfi, gazing out across the azure seas and bright blue skies.

Itinerary

Welcome to Procida, Italy, a tiny island off the coast of Naples. Your adventure begins with a group meeting at 3 pm. We'll be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so ensure you bring these details to provide to your leader. If you have time in the morning, explore the Mediterranean town of Procida. Wander down narrow streets and admire the pastel blues, pinks and yellows of the town’s seaside homes. You may want to spend a few nights here before the sailing trip and we'll be happy to help book additional accommodation (subject to availability). Set sail for neighbouring Ischia and glide across the deep blue sea, spending your first night at sea.

Notes: The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we are flexible on the day's itinerary. The itinerary is subject to change and may vary depending on weather and berth availability. Your skipper will make the final call to ensure your safety at all times.
Spend the morning and early afternoon in Ischia. Although Ischia is the largest of the islands in the Bay of Naples, it attracts far less day visitors than Capri despite its agreed upon beauty. This island has been colonised by numerous civilisations, including the Greeks, Saracens, and Turks, who were interested in its strategic position and therapeutic hot springs. Ischia is home to a number of museums, castles, towers and churches. While here, you might want to visit Spiaggia dei Pescatori (Fisherman Beach), which is dotted with traditional fishing boats, fishing nets, seafood restaurants and cafes. Mid-afternoon, sail to the coastal town of Sorrento, which sits on a rugged peninsula. Explore the staggered hillside alleyways where homes are built on a steep incline. Perhaps stroll along the marina or cool off in the waters of the local small beaches. Tonight you’ll have the opportunity to try one of Sorrento's well-known exports, limoncello. This delicious liqueur is produced from the zest and rind of locally-grown Femminello Santa Teresa lemons.
Today you have the option of visiting the abandoned city of Pompeii, a Roman settlement that was frozen in time when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, burying 20,000 people and their homes under a layer of ash. If the group desires, hire a private guide to help you explore the ruins (the additional cost will be split between you), and look back into the lives of ancient Romans. Discover how they lived, worked and interacted 2,000 years ago, and marvel at well-preserved buildings, artwork and pottery. Another possible activity is a visit to the Vesuvius National Park. Take a public bus and a short walk to reach the volcano, where the steaming crater can be seen. The cost of your entry ticket will include the services of a volcanology guide and, if you're lucky enough to visit on a clear day, you'll have incredible views over the Bay of Naples and into the crater. The return trip should take approximately three hours.

Notes: If you plan to visit many archaeological sites while in the Amalfi region, you should consider purchasing a Campania Arte card annual pass. For details please refer to: www.campaniartecard.it/en
Set sail for the Amalfi Coast, a collection of rocky coastlines, tiered lemon groves and whitewashed villages clinging to steep cliffs, passing the Sirenusas (Gallos) archipelago to the east of the Sorrentine Peninsula on the way. Your sailing adventure comes to an end on the Amalfi Coast today at around 10 am. After a final breakfast together you’re free to depart, although we recommend staying a few additional nights in Amalfi for further exploration. Your skipper can assist you with directions to the ferry terminal or to your hotel if you’re staying on.
