Campania Region

Campania Sailing Holidays

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

Yacht Charter in Campania

Charter a yacht in Campania, drop your anchor in the Bay of Naples, and get ready to explore 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 (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 the sails of your charter yacht towards the picturesque Procida, the smallest island in the Bay, just a short trip from Naples. You will be amazed by the tangle of houses painted in pink, yellow, blue and green rising above the azure sea.

The 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 - visit the Cathedral of San Matteo and theRoman aqueduct.

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