Sailing vacation in Amalfi Coast: Capri

A unique lifestile
For an immersion into mundane lifestyle you cannot miss the famous ’Piazzetta’, centre of the island’s social life. During summer the ‘Piazzetta’ becomes a branch of Hollywood and Cinecitta’ and the tables of bars invite you to an evening aperitif in a very romantic setting: at dusk the sun colors the sea a rosy red, treating you to a breathtaking view of the white columns of the Marina Grande funicular.
This is a visit that is not easily forgotten. If you want to catch scorches of the incredible panoramas of Capri, we suggest you visit the Gardens of Augustus: from here you can admire a view that, to the left, begins with the valley of Certosa and contiunues with the Faraglioni, the bay of Marina Piccola and the winding ‘ via Krupp’ road.

However it is from the top of Mount Solaro, the tallest point of the island with its 586 metres, that you can be treated to a 360 degree view of the island. From this incredible natural terrace you can enjoy almost every angle of the island as well as the Amalfi Coast, the Gulf of Naples and the islands of Ischia and Procida.

Whether you’re on a luxurious motor yacht or a small sail boat, the isle of Capri and the entire Amalfi Coast will treat you to unforgettable moments. If sight and curiosity are satisfied, your other senses won’t be less.

Unesco world Heritage

The difference between a normal vacation on the island and a sailing holiday is the ability to fully enjoy the small bays and caves. Marina Grande, the only port of the island, is located on the North coast.
However anchorage is also possible to the East and West. When strong winds blow from the North it’s possible to anchor on the bay of Marina Piccola (on the South coast). From Marina Grande you can reach Capri by foot or by cable railway.
