Amalfi Coast Yacht Charters
The Amalfi Coast of Italy has everything. Amazing views, fantastic food, and near-perfect weather make this slice of Italy undeniably noteworthy. However, that’s only scratching the surface. Did you know this piece of Southern Italy is also home to awe-inspiring history? See for yourself on one of our Amalfi Coast yacht charters. Depart from Naples, or start directly from one of the great towns we discuss below on our Amalfi Coast Yacht Charters.
When the Romans were taken over by invaders in 410 AD, wealthy citizens sought refuge. This resulted in establishing three towns – Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. Though they may be small now (Amalfi is still quite a thriving city), each town has something unique to offer visitors looking for adventure. As such, the coast is famous in the Summer months. Don’t worry; you can escape the crowds and traffic and see these seaside villages from your Amalfi Coast yacht charter.
Positano is known for its picturesque blue seaside; Inland, Ravello features incredible coastal gardens and exceptional villas, while Amalfi (the oldest) retains much of its original medieval-maritime charm amidst centuries-old stone walls.
Take advantage of the excellent wines and local limoncello no matter which town you visit. You won’t regret spending some time getting to know this colorful region. There are many places to visit, so a crewed yacht charter is the easiest, most comfortable, and most peaceful way to explore the area. VICTORIA DEL MAR is a great yacht that can make your vacation a reality.

Places to See on your Amalfi Coast Yacht Charter
The gorgeous Italian town of Positano sits on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean. Positano is around 2,000 years old and has a lot of spectacular views to offer. One way to experience Positano is to hike or drive up high for the best vantage points.
If you love nature, you'll want to check out places like Montepurtusso Il Buco, a wonderfully strange outcropping of rocks. They offer scenic views of the ocean and fantastic opportunities for photos of gorgeous homes. Nestled in lush green hillsides, villas are next to vineyards filled with olives and lemons. To enjoy Positano's unique atmosphere, visit one of its beaches, like Il Fornaillo or Arienzo Beach.
Known for its glitz and glamour, Capri wasn't always a desirable vacation spot just off the Amalfi Coast. In the past, its position made it most valuable for trade. Today, you can see ruins left over from Capri's times as a Roman trading center and Byzantine Roman colony before it was added to Italy in 1866. Capri's atmosphere is from a fairy tale mixed with incredible gardens, fruit, and olive trees.
From your private yacht, head ashore and take the funicular to reach the small inland town of Capri. Explore quaint piazzas, have a bite to eat, and try some authentic gelato. If you're interested in additional thrills, you can take a single-rider mountain chairlift up to the top of Mount Anacapri. It's an incredible experience to add to your bucket list for an Amalfi Coast yacht rental.
Ischia & Procida
Ischia and Procida lay off the coast of Naples but feel like a world away. You can return to an archaeological museum with floor mosaics from the ancient Roman Villa of 313 AD. Yacht visitors looking for a relaxing atmosphere may also visit one of many thermal baths that date back as far as 110 BC. Of course, wine tasting is a must while visiting Procida. Don't leave without enjoying the island's own Biancolella grape.
You can head to the little sister island of Procida for gorgeous scenery and adventure. You can climb to the highest point on the island, Monte Epomeo, at 1,400 feet above sea level. For beautiful coastal vistas, head to Belvedere Esla Morante. These are just a few destinations possible on our Amalfi Coast yacht charters.
Immerse yourself in the stunning cultural heritage of Naples and explore the majestic castles, Castel Nuovo and Castel dell’Ovo, which grace the city’s waterfront. Get the perfect photo in Piazza del Plebiscito, a beautiful public plaza. Stroll along the narrow and lively cobblestone streets, taking in the sites and smells of local life. Be sure to see some beautiful baroque-style palaces and varied churches in the city's center.
Choose to tour the ancient underground or perhaps one of many of Naples' museums to understand its complex past better. Then, take the cable car to the affluent Vomero neighborhood for a breathtaking panoramic city view. Afterward, head down to the waterfront Chiaia neighborhood for a delightful lunch or dinner. And lastly, journey 30 minutes out of town to Pompeii, where you can explore the spectacular ruins of an ancient city.
Extended Amalfi Coast Yacht Rentals
If you want to explore southern Italy, you can combine an Amalfi Coast private yacht rental with another week exploring nearby Sicily or up the coast along the Tyrrhenian Sea. For more, please see our two-week Amalfi Coast Itinerary example.
The lush, volcanic paradise of Lipari and Panarea in the Aeolian Islands are popular destinations for the region and Italy, attracting yacht charterers. Situated just north of Sicily, these islands make for an easy trip from mainland Sicily or the Amalfi coast.
The Aeolian Islands are a group of islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea north of Sicily, containing one of three active volcanos in Italy, Mount Stromboli. The other significant island is Vulcano. Steaming fumaroles and thermal waters can be found on most of the islands.
Explore the tiny islands of Ponza, Palmarola, and Zannone, all located in the Pontine Islands off Italy's southwestern coast. Secluded caves, fortresses, beaches, and crystal clear waters await you in this unique part of Italy. The islands are between Rome and Naples, so you reach them on your private yacht charter from the Amalfi Coast or Italy's Tuscan Coast. You can tour the island of Elba, Giglio, and many more places in the Tuscan archipelago.
