Aeolian Islands/Amalfi Coast/Sardinia

Italy is surrounded by one of the most dramatic coastlines in Europe. Coupled with its deep Roman past it makes for an exceptional cruising destination.

Choose Sardinia for its chic and classy residents, simply stunning scenery, and its gastronomic delights. The island is known for its legendary Costa Smeralda or the “Emerald Coast” but is also full of other places to discover that truly make Sardinia a sailing paradise.

Or sail the Aeolian islands, off the coast of Sicily, for a collection of dramatic islands and dormant volcanoes that rise theatrically from the sea. Set a course for Stromboli and marvel at the scale and lava-spewing force of Europe’s second-largest active volcano.

Choose the famous Almalfi coast for sheer cliffs complemented by a rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches ideal for exploring.
