Welcome to the home of Sailing in Naples, Capri and the Amalfi Coast...
As well as being dynamic, exciting cities in their own rights, Naples and Salerno are also the starting ports for fantastic cruising of both mainland Italy and nearby islands. You can sail either north to the nearby Pontine Islands, or stay in the Bay of Naples and visit the Partenopean Islands. Typically the sailing around Naples, Procida and the Amalfi Coast involves shorter legs, and incorporates beautiful beaches, rugged landscapes, and plenty of glamorous nightlife.
Highlights of this region include the archaeological site of Pompeii, the Blue Lagoon on Capri, the beautiful volcanic island of Ischia and the popular resorts of the Amalfi coast including Positano, Amalfi and Ravello.
Ischia, Capri, Procida and Vivara are the Partenopean islands in the bay of Naples. To the north of the Gulf are situated Ischia, Procida and Vivara, looking toward the “Flegrea” coast, while in the south of the Gulf, opposite to the Sorrento peninsula, lays Capri. Full of charm is also the Amalfi Coast, with its mixture of history and nature, all to discover.
