Tuscany Sailing Holidays

Tuscany, a region in central Italy, known for its history and influence on high culture, is a perfect sailing destination for all art lovers and romantics. Start your sailing holiday in the well-positioned city of Viareggio, the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea”, where you can enjoy long beaches and local cuisine. Not far from there is the famous Pisa, whose Leaning Tower is on every tourist’s bucket list.

Yacht Charter in Tuscany

The capital of Tuscany, Florence - the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, is full of architectural and cultural wonders you can explore, while indulging in the authentic gelato. When you are done sightseeing, set the sails of your charter yacht to Portoferraio on Elba, the largest island of the Tuscan Archipelago, which can be easily reached on board of your bareboat or skippered yacht charter. There, you can go hiking, scuba-diving, visit Napoleon’s homes, or just relax on postcard-perfect beaches.

The marinas are open all year round in Tuscany, but best months for a sailing holiday are April, May, June, September and October: it is not so hot and crowded, so it is possible to find isolated anchorages.
