Sailing in Italy

Sailing in Italy is an experience unlike any other

Sailing along the stunning coastline of Italy is absolutely unforgettable. The country's diverse landscapes, rich cultural heritage and world-class cuisine provide a magical backdrop for a sailing adventure.

From the rugged cliffs of the Amalfi Coast to the picturesque islands of the Venetian Lagoon, there is an itinerary to suit every sailor's taste.

The crystal clear waters, charming villages, and delicious cuisine make for the perfect sailing itinerary.


One of the best sailing itineraries in Italy is a trip along the Amalfi Coast and further to Capri, Ischia and Procida Islands. This region is known for its dramatic cliffs, crystal-clear waters, and charming fishing villages. Start your journey in the town of Amalfi and make your way north to Positano, one of the most picturesque towns on the coast. Here you can explore the town's charming streets, enjoy a delicious meal at one of the local seafood restaurants, and take in the breathtaking views of the sea.

Another must-see sailing destination in Italy is Sicily and the Aeolian Islands. These volcanic islands are located off the northeastern coast of Sicily and are known for their rugged beauty and rich history. The largest island, Lipari, is home to a charming town that has been inhabited since ancient times. Here you can explore the island's ancient ruins, take a dip in the crystal-clear waters, and enjoy the local cuisine.

Sardinia is one of the biggest islands in the Mediterranean, and one of our top sailing grounds. It is possibly one of the very few Mediterranean destinations with white sandy beaches and pristine turquoise waters.

A boat rental in Sardinia is the best way to discover and explore the beautiful Costa Smeralda starting from Portisco or one of the smaller bases.

Nestled between the south of France and the Tuscan border lies the region of Liguria, with verdant and lush mountains to the north and east, and the sapphire-blue Mediterranean to the south and west. In between is a land of lush vegetation, medieval hilltop hamlets, panoramic vistas, colorful seaside villages, pristine beaches, the world-famous Cinque Terre, and one of Italy’s most underrated cities, Genoa. It's also easy to just enjoy la dolce vita along this coast, better known as the Italian Riviera.

The Gulf of Naples is another fantastic sailing destination in Italy. This area is known for its stunning landscapes, delicious seafood, and rich cultural heritage. Start your journey in the charming town of Sorrento and make your way to the islands of Capri and Prochida, known for their luxurious villas, beautiful beaches, and world-renowned shopping.

Rich with cultural, culinary and architectural highlights, Tuscany is a relatively new and upcoming Italian sailing destination - definitely not to be missed.

A romantic sailing adventure is waiting for you. Start from Cala de 'Medici in Castiglioncello or La Spezia a bit further North and enjoy the most romantic and picturesque Italian region.

Try the delicious Tuscan food, visit the unmissable Saturnia hot springs, book a wine tour and explore the legendary Elba island.

Last but not least, the Venetian Lagoon is a must-see destination for sailors. This area is home to a unique ecosystem and is dotted with charming islands. The most famous of these islands is Venice, known for its winding canals and stunning architecture. Here you can explore the city's famous landmarks, such as St. Mark's Basilica, and take a gondola ride through the city's canals.
