Tours

Sailing Weekend in The Gulf of Naples

Boarding July, Friday 6th 04.00 pm
Outboarding July, Sunday 8th 06.00 pm

[Sea]

The cruise will begin boarding on Bavaria 41, a wonderful sailing boat equipped with 3 double cabins and 2 wc, with a length around 12,50 m. The boat will be sailing in the wonderful bay of Naples, between the Partenopean Islands: Ischia, Capri, Procida and Vivara. To the north of the gulf are situated Ischia, Procida and Vivara, looking toward the "Flegrea" coast (and "Flegree" is their name), while in the south of the gulf, opposite to the Sorrento peninsula, lays Capri. Ischia is the largest island with her 47 square kilometres, followed by Capri and Procida, that is linked to the small island of Vivara which is a wonderful natural reserve.

Suggested Itinerany

[Ischia]
The biggest island in the Gulf of Naples is Ischia, one of the most famous seaside and tourist spa centres of Italy and the world. Just off the coast of Naples and Salerno, between Cape Miseno and Amalfi, a great rock soars like a dream lost in the cobalt blue sea that surrounds it.

[Procida]
The charming island of Procida lies like an undiscovered garden next to its vibrant sister islands Ischia and Capri. Procida is the smallest and oldest island in the Bay of Naples and is, like Ischia, of volcanic origin.

[Capri]
Capri is yearned for and exalted in some of the world's most famous lyric poetry. With its Faraglioni and its limestone cliffs rising sheer above the sea, with its white houses covered with bougainvillea, its picturesque lanes and its world famous "Piazzetta", Capri is a Mediterranean jewel to live and discover.
