Like most of the Mediterranean, the Italy yacht chartering season generally runs from April to the end of October. The summer season for Italy is in July and August. This is also the high season as far as yacht charter goes. Other good times to rent your yacht are generally on either of the shoulder seasons (April-May and September-October), each side of the main summer season, as the temperatures are still comfortable, and the onshore tourists have yet to arrive in their largest numbers. The types of yacht charter available at yacht rentals italy include motor yacht, sailing yacht charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamarans, power boats, sailboat, luxury yachts and the ever increasing mega and super yacht charter.
Many Italy and Amalfi private luxury yacht charters begin in Naples. Naples is a city with a distinct energy - chaotic yet charming, cluttered yet beautiful. Rather daunting to the virgin eye, Naples has a way of shedding your inhibitions, to present a proud and colourful culture, with an alluring hospitality. Naples is the yacht charter hub of southern Italy and the gateway to Capri and the Amalfi Coast. The Isle of Capri and Amalfi present some of the most spectacular coastlines of the whole Mediterranean.
AMALFI COAST - COSTIERA AMALFITANA
A yacht charter in Italy must incorporate the stunning Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi coast is around a day sail south of Naples. Amalfi and Positano, like Capri, attract visitors and charter yachts of the highest prestige. The 50 km of the Amalfi coastline stretches mainly from Sorrento to Salerno. It remains a place of rare and incredible beauty. The hillside towns are a truly magnificent display of Italian engineering and architecture.
Portofino is another must see. It is a tiny town of cobble-stone streets, framed by hills of silvery, ancient olive groves. From the top of the hill, the views of the harbour and coastline are breathtaking. Cafes, boutique shops and gelataria’s spill out into the harbour piazza. The portside cafes are a great place to sit and watch the glamorous yachting world go by.
