With a yacht charter in Italy you will witness one of the most romantic sights in the world, the patch work of pink and white houses in quaint villages clinging to the rock... this has been captivating visitors to the Amalfi Coast for generations, major poets and artists among them. One of the most spectacular views is looking up from sea level... you get the whole panorama: the cobbled streets dotted with jasmine and honeysuckle trees, the yellow and blue tiles of the church, and if the breeze direction is right, the scent of lemons from nearby groves. Sail to nearby Capri on one of our Mediterranean yacht charters and take in its beautiful scenery, famous Blue Grotto and dramatic Faraglioni Rocks which will always beckon a jet-set and sophisticated traveller.
