Things to do on one of the Italy Charter Itineraries:

Since seeing so many beautiful places takes time, we recommend chartering for at least 10 to 14 days. Indeed, it is necessary to visit several times to cover a larger area. Similar to visiting Greece, there is so much to see and do that it takes multiple trips.

Climate:

Italy has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. July is the hottest month, with temperatures up to 30C (86F), and January is the coldest month. Summer is the best time to sail in this area, although it is also the busiest. At that time, marinas and anchorages are filled with yachts.

Gastronomy:

Italian cuisine varies between regions. However, overall the cuisine is straightforward with fresh ingredients. Typical dishes include risotto, polenta, lasagna, ravioli, and osso buco.

In Northern Italy, fish, potatoes, rice, sausages, pork, and cheese are the most common ingredients. Pasta dishes with tomatoes are popular. In the South, tomatoes dominate dishes, which are either served fresh or cooked into sauce.

Italy is the world's largest wine producer. In addition, it is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world.
