From the North to Sicily, 800 miles on a sailboat among paradise islands, picturesque villages and memorable wines
Travel itineraries, hiking, kayaking and sailing in Italy and around the world


Here a bit from the trip report of our navigation along the italian costs that contains a lot of travel information about destinations, weather, etc... and some silly anecdotes about our journey too.
"The sun was going down and the sky was becoming red and pink. We opened a bottle of white wine and we had the most scenic aperitif. Behind us, in the distance, we could see the Ligurian coast, in front of us just the horizon."
"We reached Ponza [...] on one side there was the sunset over the sea, on the other side white and multicolored rocks, and in front of us an endless vertical cliff with a long, deserted beach. Volcanic eruptions and landslides were the creators of such masterpieces. I don’t know any artists as good as the nature - although, I must admit, the creations by the volcanoes are random and sometimes also a little bit catastrophic."
"A light wind was pushing us when, about at 4 AM, we saw a red light in the sky, in the distance: it was the “Sciara del Fuoco” (Trail of Fire) of Stromboli, that is the lava trail erupted from the active volcano."


Panarea, Aeolian Islands
Panarea, Aeolian Islands - On this spectacular stretch of coast there are the ruins of a prehistoric settlement. People have been enjoying the waters of Panarea for some thousands of years, but I'm pretty sure that nobody gets bored.


Why? Paradise islands, vertical cliffs, dreamy beaches, quaint villages perched over the sea, diverse and sublime regional gastronomy... Ehm, should I go on? Well, yes, also the beautiful feeling of traveling in the nature pushed only by the wind, the adrenaline under spinnaker and the peaceful relax when mooring at the anchor in a deserted bay, falling asleep lulled by the sea...
When to go? Always, if you can, but the best season for sailing Italy is summer. Also in spring and in the first part of autumn the weather may be great; moreover, there will be very few boats around.

How? A sailing charter. Send us an e-mail here: to find information about sailing holidays in Italy.
How much? If there are enough passengers on the boat (e.g. at least four persons on a 10 metre sailing boat), a sailing charter isn't more expensive than a traditional holiday in a hotel, depending of course also on the travel itinerary and the harbours visited.

Where? There are many really amazing places alonf the Thyrrenian coasts of Italy. This long itinerary allows admiring the Tuscany Archipelago (in particular Giglio, and Capraia islands), the Pontine islands (Palmarola, Ponza, Ventotene), and then Procida and Amalfi, before sailing towards Sicily through the magnificent Aeolian Islands (especially Vulcano and Panarea islands).
Where else? Lots of possible other destinations, both along this travel itinerary and in other Italian regions. For example, Sardinia and Corse offer superb beaches and landscapes.
