South from chaotic and fascinating Naples, the outstanding and well-known Amalfi Coast – and the three islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, as well as land gems like Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi itself – have been a magnet for visitors since Roman times. The 50-kilometer stretch of coastline is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is comprised of dozens of towns, beaches, coves and cliffs. The beauty of southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast is legendary, and has inspired artists, writers, and travellers from all over the globe. And it’s little wonder why: here, vibrant, village-strewn cliffs jut into the sea.
During the summer, notes of lemon hang in the air and festivals enliven hamlets along the drive from the Bay of Naples to the Gulf of Salerno, making it the ideal time to travel to the Amalfi Coast. Capri is probably the most celebrated spot of this itinerary – and you won’t have any doubts why. Steep cliffs rise majestically from an impossibly blue sea; elegant villas drip with wisteria and bougainvillea; untainted gardens surround it all. Capri’s most famous attraction is Faraglioni – undoubtedly the most representative picture of this destination: an unmissable spot for any sailor lucky enough to be there.
The Amalfi Coast has always been a special place for sailors and tourists. The crystal clear waters mixed with the local cuisine is something you can't find everywhere. Since I like to explore new places when I sail, the Amalfi Coast has several options so you can always find the perfect itinerary. Here at Spartivento, we would be incredibly happy to help you and your family and friends find the perfect sailing holiday in the Amalfi.
The southern side of the Sorrento peninsula that divides the Gulf of Naples from that of Salerno, always a seaside resort and tourist for lovers of sailing holidays: its chalk cliffs fall into the deep blue sea, creating extraordinary bays beauty on the terraces suspended over the landscape and, together with its rich artistic heritage, make it one of the most renowned places in Italy and the world, so much so that it deserves recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
