7 Day Corsica & Sardina Charter Itinerary
Day 1 – Embark in Calvi
Begin your Mediterranean yacht charter vacation from the pretty Corsican town of Calvi.
Famous for its five-mile shore of golden sands, Calvi’s lost citadel sits above the marina to a backdrop of snow-topped mountains in the distance – the perfect way to start your vacation.
You’ll then cruise through the beautiful Golfe of Girolata, enjoying the spectacular views of the Scandola Nature reserve from the comfort of your luxury charter yacht before spending a tranquil evening in the village of Girolata.
Day 2 & 3 – Capri
Among the highlights of Capri are the Blue Grotto sea cave and the incredibly scenic town of Anacapri located on the slopes of Mount Solaro.
Located just around the corner from the Grande Marina is a charming walking and shopping area. However, the historic main town of Capri is the place to be. Take this opportunity to visit the tiny boutiques, stop off for a refreshment at one of the many outdoor cafes and explore the elegant palazzo of Villa Lysis, or make a day of Villa San Michele and explore their vibrant gardens after visiting the ancient roman museum.
Capri claims to be home of the ‘true lemon’ bursting with flavour and possessing a delicate tartness that’s unparalleled by any others in Italy. A wonderful way to end your day is to dine under a bed of lemon trees at Da Paolino, where you can expect a supreme dining experience and homemade limoncello to take back as souvenirs.
Day 4 – Amalfi
On this day, your yacht will venture to Amalfi, one of the most romantic villages in Italy.
Lying at the mouth of a deep gorge and surrounded by spectacular scenery, the town of Amalfi is a stunning sight to behold and a premium cruising destination for some of the world’s high rollers. Marvel at the spectacular coastal views from the hillside village of Ravello where you can explore gorgeous public gardens such as Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo.
Saunter down the winding streets to witness the traditional Moorish-style houses and courtyard gardens that face the sea, and take in views of the Sirenusas – a little archipelago named after the mythical sirens that once were reported to live there. For supper, we recommend that you reserve a table at Palazzo Avino for a decadent meal overlooking the sunset.
Day 5 – Pompeii
Dock your charter yacht at Salerno Marina and depart for the ancient Roman town of Pompeii via tender.
You will return close to the cruising ground of Naples. However, on this day you will be exploring the ancient city of Pompeii where you will venture into the city frozen in time and learn of the events that lead to the town becoming the way it is. Later in the day, you can trek Mount Vesuvius for a breathtaking view of the area where you will be able to see the waters you have cruised the day prior. If you have time you can also check out the sunken city of Baiae for a completely inverse lost paradise expedition.
Day 6 – Sorrento Peninsula
On the final full day of your yacht charter vacation, you and your guests will visit Sorrento to discover the Charms of this dreamlike coastal settlement.
The town of Sorrento is famed for its rugged landscapes, sweeping scenery, and rustic buildings. Take the time to walk the central promenade and stop for a leisurely breakfast at local cafes, before walking up the steps along the seafront and strolling through the town’s immaculate gardens and winding streets.
The locals in the area are welcoming and inviting, you will be certain to meet many wonderful people on your trip here who can point you to the best attractions off the beaten path, or to the best family-run restaurants where you and your guests can dine on authentic Italian dishes.
Day 7 – Ischia
On this day you will conclude your luxury yacht charter. However, there is still plenty for you to discover before you return to Naples.
Sail to Ischia, a volcanic spa island with numerous sulfur springs and medicinal bathing areas. You will find plenty of lounging spots on the beach of this volcanic island that are host to many buzzy bars and restaurants that you can make a pit stop for one last limoncello. There are a myriad of taxis in Ischia that can provide a tour around the island if you want to stop by some galleries or markets for some last-minute souvenir shopping. They could even take you to Negombo Thermal Gardens, home to awe-inspiring nature walks and mineral-rich waters which are said to have healing powers.
When you finally do disembark in Naples, be sure to hit all of the tourist hotspots you may have missed your first time around. There is so much to do in the city that perhaps you and your guests will want to stay the night in one of their luxury hotels before you return home.
