Things to do:
Since it takes time to see so many wonderful places, 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 to do so.
Italy is characterized by 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. The summer is the best time of year to sail this area although it is also the busiest. At that time, marinas and anchorages are filled with yachts.
Italian cuisine varies between regions. However, overall the cuisine is simple with fresh ingredients. Typical dishes include risotto, polenta, lasagna, ravioli, and osso buco.
In Northern Italy, fish, potatoes, rice, sausages, pork, and various cheeses are the most common ingredients. Pasta dishes with tomatoes are popular. In the South, tomatoes dominate dishes, and they 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.
