Is there a more iconic country than Italy? Renaissance art, exquisite food, divine wine, ancient architecture, and more heritage and culture than you can throw a piping hot focaccia at. Add some of the Mediterranean’s most dramatic and epic coastline into the mix, and cruising Italy by yacht becomes a no-brainer. Spend the day exploring ancient ruins and hanging out with local baristas, before pulling up the yacht at one of the thousands of astounding anchorages for a paddle in crystal blue water. To put it simply, it doesn’t get any better than Italy by yacht.
Aelioen Islands (Sicily)
Trek to volcano craters or dive beneath the waves and into another world. Whether above or below, adventure abounds in the Aelioen Islands. Rising up from the cobalt blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the seven dramatic islands that make up this archipelago have so much to offer. Hire quads and kayaks to explore Vulcano by land and sea or hit up the island’s natural mud baths for a more relaxing experience. Get a taste of the region’s history with a visit to the fortified acropolis on Lipari, sample some of the fine wines from Salina’s vineyards, and press the flesh with the locals in the cosy fishing villages. The Aelioen Islands will scratch all those itches for an unforgettable sailing adventure.
