ITALIAN RIVIERA YACHT CHARTERS
Synonymous with the Cinque Terre National Park, where dramatically placed seaside villages seemingly cascade into the ocean, the Italian Riviera offers an array of Mediterranean yacht charter highlights; including the regal town of Genoa and the natural beauty of the island of Elba.
DAY 1 – SANREMO TO GENOA
Meet your crewed motor or sailing yacht in Sanremo, less than an hour and a half from Nice airport and Monaco. With a glass of welcome Champagne in hand, watch the scenery as your yacht Captain sails to Genoa, a city with a rich maritime history and an old town full of cosy bars and restaurants.
DAY 2 - GENOA TO PORTOFINO
Portofino is a favourite place of many celebrities and you’ll immediately understand why as you dock next to pastel coloured buildings and designer boutiques. After a stroll around the charming village, don’t forget to live the dolce vita at the restaurant or spa Splendido Hotel!
DAYS 3 & 4 – PORTOFINO TO CINQUE TERRE
We recommend saving more than one day in your yacht charter itinerary to explore the sublime villages of the Cinque Terre national park. Vernazza, Monterosso, Manarola and Riomaggiore boast a spectacular coastal setting, while Corniglia watches over its waterfront neighbours from its position high up on a coastal promontory.
DAY 5 - CINQUE TERRE TO PORTO VENERE
A favourite destination of the poet Byron, soak up the summer holiday atmosphere in the narrow pedestrian streets of Porto Venere, at the eastern end of the Italian Riviera as your chef prepares the catch of the day for an alfresco dinner to remember.
DAY 6 – PORTO VENERE TO VIAREGGIO
Where the Italian Riviera meets Tuscany, Viareggio is a gateway to the medieval towns of Pisa and Lucca. Or, simply relax on board your motor and sailing yacht charter and sample local cuisine prepared by the yacht chef, washed down with a rich SuperTuscan red wine.
DAY 7 VIAREGGIO TO ELBA
A touch of the Caribbean in the middle of the Mediterranean, the island of Elba is just off the Tuscan coast and an easy sail from Viareggio. Discover one of Europe’s best-kept secrets: its beaches. An unforgettable high to signal the end of an unforgettable luxury yacht charter.
