For your eyes: scenic views and heritage

The Amalfi Coast enjoys a unique natural landscape and is full of architectural treasures. The beautiful village of Ravello boasts the gardens of Villa Cimbrone, a superb property that has a hotel and a landscaped park. You will discover an impressive variety of exotic vegetation, sculptures and a breathtaking view over the coast.  In Amalfi, stroll through the steep medieval streets before climbing the steps of the Duomo di S. Andrea Apostolo, one of the most visited monuments. Set on a rocky cliff between sky and sea, the village of Positano has a unique architecture with Arabic influences. Finally, Procida Island, far from the hustle and bustle of Capri, offers a unique and authentic charm. With its pastel-coloured houses and quiet surroundings, the island is the ideal place to relax on your Amalfi Coast luxury yacht charter.

For your gourmet taste: a sensational gastronomy

On the Amalfi Coast, the alleys are narrow, the scooters give a roar, the laundry dries between two windows and the enchanting smell of a delicious cuisine floats in the air... Pizzas and pasta are certainly part of the program but it is all Amalfi gastronomy that should be highlighted. It is one of the best in Italy and Italy has one of the best cuisines in the world, so it's telling you... They make it simple with good products and we simply indulge in a culinary delight! Whether you fancy a sunset aperitivo, a simple pasta dish in a trattoria or a tasting menu with panoramic views, there is a place for everyone. There are also some very good beach clubs for lunch while your boat sits at anchor.
