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. 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. The first port of call is the local supermarket to buy supplies for your trip as a group (we call this a ‘starter park’). The starter pack will include provisions for breakfast, lunch and/or snacks for the whole trip. If you have any special dietary requirements, please make sure you notify us at the time of booking so we can accommodate your requests.

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 where you'll spend the night aboard the boat.

**Please remember 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 can be flexible on the day's itinerary.**
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. 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. 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. If the group desires, hire a private guide to help you explore the ruins (the additional cost will be split between you). 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
This morning set sail for the Amalfi Coast, passing the Sirenusas (Gallos) archipelago to the east of the Sorrentine Peninsula on the way. Your sailing adventure comes to an end 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.
