See the Natural Beauty of this Unspoilt Landscape

As each island has something unique to offer, your eyes will be treated to a selection of almost impossibly spectacular landscapes. See bursts of lava from Europe’s most active volcano, snorkel through superbly clear waters witnessing marvellous bursts of colour beneath the waves, admire secluded caves, sea grottos and ancient architecture, and enjoy floral blooms which stretch for miles around.

Take a Deep Breath and Inhale the Fresh Scents of Island Life

Fragrant fruit trees line winding pathways, locals adorn their crisp white homes with beautifully scented flowers, there’s a saltiness to the breeze flowing through charming side streets drawing you to the ocean, and the scent of Italian dishes made using recipes that have been passed down for generations and emanating from every restaurant and eatery.

Listen to Bustling Island Life and Softly Lapping Waves

Where else can you hear the gentle bubbling of volcanic activity, the hustle and bustle of authentic Italian harbour towns, the soft breeze rustling wildflowers and lush forest land, and the gentle lapping of waves on the shore line?

Reach Out and Touch, It’s all Real!

You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve woken up in a dream world on your Italian yacht getaway – in fact, we’ve all done it so we completely understand. But we promise everything is real, no matter how perfect it seems. Pick perfectly formed citrus fruits hanging from fragrant trees, run your fingers through black volcanic sand beaches and touch buildings that have stood proudly for centuries watching over the daily happenings of island life.

Indulge Your Taste Buds on Your Sailing Getaway

From glorious gelato in every flavour imaginable and some of the freshest seafood anywhere in the world, to fresh olive oil and locally made wine, every Italian dining experience is nothing short of a pure delight.
