Cruising the Amalfi Coast
Selected as one of the 100 best holidays of 2011 by The Sunday Times.
Celebrated travel writer, Jeremy Seal, joined our very first Cruising the Amalfi Coast trip in Sept 2011. You can read his feature, Italy’s Bay of Beauty, published in the UK’s Sunday Telegraph on June 3 2012. He described the trip as “top-drawer history tourism...true travelling pedigree.”
This unique gulet cruise visits some of the greatest archaeological and cultural jewels of the Amalfi coast. Holidays around the Bay of Naples are almost always by land. We’ve created a trip which allows you to see this beautiful stretch of coast and more while travelling aboard a beautiful and traditional wooden boat. Restricted to just 10 guests, we sail aboard a gorgeous six cabin gulet, handcrafted in Turkey and refitted in Italy.
On our Amalfi Coast tour we will of course visit some of the best known places in the area, such as Capri, Pompeii and Amalfi, famed for their beauty or history. We’ll also explore lesser known sites such as Baia and have the chance to see the outstanding Roman frescoes of the Villa Oplontis. These more ‘minor’ places easily match the celebrated highlights in terms of the splendour of their architecture and location, and walking around these un-crowded antiquities creates an unforgettable and atmospheric experience.
The mountains and villages of the Amalfi Coast and nearby islands are justly renowned for their picturesque charm, and there is no better vantage point than the deck of our gulet as we cruise along the coast, or ride at anchor as delicious meals are served. There will be ample opportunity to swim in the Mediterranean Sea, or sit back and relax, read a book, enjoy a glass of wine, or discuss the sights and sounds of the day with new friends.
This Bay of Naples and Amalfi Coast tour, led by an expert historian and archaeologist, is a perfect combination of magnificent sites, breathtaking vistas, glorious swims and mouth-watering local food.
This is our very first gulet itinerary along the mainland coast of Italy. We are currently developing Amalfi Coast tours and other trips in the area with different themes such as walking, cycling and gastronomy.
