What to do in Italy?
Italy has a wide variety of beaches and islands to discover. Whether you decide to go to areas in the north such as Tuscany or the South like Sicily or Sardinia your boat rental in Italy will not disappoint.
In Tuscany, the sandy beaches of Viareggio are a popular seaside destination. It is ideal for families and children and in the evening during the summer the nightlife is ideal. Another beautiful beach area in Tuscany is Castiglioncello. The picturesque coves and pebble creeks make it a nice place to go in your charter yacht in Italy. Further south, there is the Golfo Di Baratti with pine forests and sandy beaches.
In Tuscany if you are looking for a city to visit, we recommend mooring at the Marina di Pisa. You can visit the city and see the famous leaning Tower of Pisa. While here we recommend to also check out the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and try counting the “devil’s nail prints.” The mystery of the holes on the side facing the Camposanto Monumentale is that there are holes. Everytime someone tries to count the holes on this Roman origin piece of marble, you never result with the same number. Try this mystery out yourself and let us know how many holes you counted!
The southern side of Italy there is so much to see between the Amalfi Coast, Sicily, Sardinia and more. This is an ideal place in Italy for yacht rentals due to its vast and endless options. The Amalfi Coast is home to a Positano, a city that looks like it came straight from a postcard. Beaches such as Marina Grande are beautiful to see from the sea with colourful apartments, houses and more bringing the scene to life. Santa Croce is another place to visit on this coast that is tucked away in a rocky inlet. You are only able to arrive at these turquoise waters by boat making it secluded. Another unique site is Fiordo di Furore which was an old fishing hamlet. This cove is visible from the road above and is ideal in the earlier hours of the morning.
Arriving in Sardinia, even if it is from the coast of Italy, feels like being in a different continent. Yachts for rent here make going to different parts of the island easy. In the north La Pelosa is a piece of paradise with a raggy coastline and the open seas of the Mediterranean. Su Giudeu is a popular beach for surfers on the southern tip of Sardinia. This beach attracts younger people with its colourful reefs, so don’t forget your snorkeling gear.
