Sailing Campania Region

Campania, a region in Southern Italy, known for its rich pastures and fertile land, represents one of the cradles of Greco-Roman culture, and definitely deserves a visit during your sailing holiday in Italy.

Drop your anchor in the Bay of Naples, and go exploring its edgy same-name capital. For history buffs, no trip to Naples would be complete without a visit to the infamous Pompeii and Vesuvius. Naples is not only the birthplace of pizza, the pizza verace napoletana, which is a must try, but is also known for its short and very, very strong coffee. After you feel energized, set your sails to the picturesque Procida, the smallest island in the Bay, just a short hop from Naples. You will be amazed by the tangle of houses painted in pink, yellow, blue and green rising above the azure sea.

Amalfi coast

Obligatory part of sailing in Campania is the visit southeast to the spectacular Amalfi Coast, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also one of Italy’s top spots for hiking, most popular trail being the Path of the Gods. South of the Amalfi Coast is Salerno, a safe port where you can relax and go sightseeing, Cathedral of San Matteo or Roman aqueduct, to name a few.

Charter your sailing yacht or catamaran with SailingEurope, either skippered or bareboat, and explore this region of myths, easily accessible from Rome and home to spectacular sights.
Choose a Boat

Best time for leisure sailing is without a doubt from April to June, at the beginning of the season, if you want to avoid crowds and the oppressive heat of July and August.
