4 Days: Sail Italy: Procida to Amalfi

Welcome to Procida, Italy, a tiny island off the coast of Naples. Your adventure begins today 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 then the local supermarket to buy supplies for your trip as a group. 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 city of Procida. Perhaps see the walled medieval town of Terra Murata or the charming port of Corricella. Head to the boat for a gentle introduction to life on-board and sail the short distance west to the largest of the Phlegraean Islands, Ischia. In contrast to Procida, it’s the largest island in the Bay of Naples.

***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***

Special Information

Your skipper will collect the trip kitty of EUR40 at the pre-departure meeting today.

Spend the morning and early afternoon in Ischia. Perhaps visit Spiaggia dei Pescatori, which is an idyllic beach nestled between Ischia Porto and Ischia Ponte. The beach offers a great view of Castello Aragonese, a 15th-century medieval castle. In the afternoon set sail for Sorrento, which offers panoramic views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Sorrento has a steady stream of visitors, peaking in the summer months. Tonight you’ll have the opportunity to try one of Sorrento's well-known exports – Limoncello. This a liqueur produced from locally-grown Femminello Santa Teresa lemons.

Accommodation
  • Overnight boat (1 night)
Optional Activities
  • Castello Aragonese entrance - EUR10
Meals Included

There are no meals included on this day.

Today you have the option to visit the abandoned city of Pompeii, a Roman settlement that was frozen in time when Mount Vesuvius erupted. Well-preserved buildings, artwork and pottery offer a glimpse into the lives of the ancient Romans. There’s also an option to hire a private guide for the ruins, as the site could easily be explored over an entire day due to sheer size and content (the additional cost of a private guide will be split between the group). Another possible activity is a visit to the Mount Vesuvius National Park. Reach the volcano by taking a public bus (approximately 30 minutes) and then a short walk (200 metres), which requires a moderate level of fitness.

Although it's not an overly strenuous walk, if you have any health issues you may want to run this past your doctor before leaving home. At 1,200 metres, it will be a lot colder than sea level so you'll need to bring a fleece, rain coat, hat, sunscreen, good walking shoes and lots of water with you. The return trip should take approximately three hours.

Notes: The cost of your entry ticket to Mount Vesuvius 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. Although Mt Vesuvius is still considered to be an active volcano, the last eruption was in 1944 and there's no sign of lava. 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

Meals Included

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.

FAQs

Not at all! Tailor-Made means you can choose to make a fully customised itinerary with the assistance of our destination specialists, or choose one of our 1000+ exiting itineraries to modify to suit your groups specific needs!

This will depend on the itinerary you choose and how many passengers will be travelling with you. Generally, if you were to pick an existing itinerary to run privately for a group of 6 or more, the price will start to become cheaper in comparison to our normal publicly available group trips.

A proposal for a pre-designed itinerary can be through to you in as little as 24 hours, for more tailored itineraries it can take 3-5 business days. Our destination specialists will be able to provide more information once you contact us and provide details on the kind of Tailor-Made Experience you are looking to create.

The pricing proposal for Talior-Made Experiences does not include the cost of:

  • International Flights: We can provide separate pricing for international airfares if departing from Australia.
  • Travel Insurance: If you’re departing from Australia, we can also assist with arranging your travel insurance.

We can include the cost of a free of charge (FOC) spot with any pricing proposal. The cost of this spot will then be averaged out amongst the paying passengers.  Please advise us when requesting a pricing proposal whether you’ll need any FOC spots for your trip.

1. Get to know your consultant

When you call, you’ll speak to your regional specialist - someone who knows the destination really well! They’ll be able to guide you through any tricky logistics, offer advice, and arrange as many activities as you like. 

2. Get the itinerary priced

After we’ve put together an itinerary based on your group’s interests, we’ll get a quote from our local teams in our DMCs worldwide.

3. Receive your pricing proposal 

As soon as we receive costs from our local team, we will send through a detailed day by day itinerary with costing for your group size. From here you are able to request changes or move forward with paying a deposit to request your tour services.

4. Lock it in 

Once you are happy with the itinerary and ready to go ahead, we’ll need to collect deposits per person along with all travellers’ full names. Once we have everyone’s deposits on file our local teams will begin confirmed the elements of your trip. This can take 5-7 business days. Once the trip is confirmed, we will send you a confirmation pack, which means that services and prices are locked in!
