A summer yacht charter along the Italian Riviera is always a good idea, whether you want to explore the unspoiled Aeolian islands, tour the beautiful towns of the Amalfi Coast as well as Capri, hit the hotspots of Sardinia, or experience the history, cuisine, and culture of Tuscany. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider chartering a luxury yacht in Italy on your next trip.
