Gulet Cruises In Italy
A Peter Sommer Travels Gulet Cruise in Italy is an experience second to none, a holiday that combines perfect relaxation with the thrill of exploring the ancient sites and picturesque harbours of the Italian shores. Cruise in style along the coastlines of Italy’s cultural heartlands, renowned for their beauty since the height of the Roman Empire, 2,000 years ago, on an extraordinary journey of discovery and leisure.
“admiring her high galleon stern, sweeping decks and long bowsprit, our little group of history lovers boarded our gulet to cruise along the Amalfi Coast. By somehow contriving to be at once practical and romantic, with dolphins riding the bow wave - our holiday home, restaurant and chief mode of transport stole the show. Here was true travelling pedigree...top-drawer history tourism.” Jeremy Seal, The Sunday Telegraph
Cruising on a Gulet in Italy
The gulets we use on our Italian cruises have been chosen with great care, to make sure that they meet our exacting standards. We aim to offer our guests an on-board experience of superb technical quality and excellent service, which determines our selection of boats.
“Our second Peter Sommer Travels’ tour exceeded our expectations as did our first tour in Turkey. The Amalfi coast adventure had outstanding guides, gorgeous scenery, gourmet dining and relaxing accommodation with a helpful crew.” Jane Bokan, California, USA
In Italy, you can immerse yourself in the sumptuous beauty of the Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, lined with some of the most evocative and famous sites in the Mediterranean, among them Pompeii and Capri. Alternatively, you can explore the natural beauty and authentic local culture of the Aeolian Islands.
Cruising the Amalfi Coast
We combine some of the greatest archaeological and cultural jewels of the Amalfi coast and the Bay of Naples with all the pleasures of travelling aboard a beautiful and traditional wooden boat. You’ll visit some of the best-known cultural sites in the world, such as Ischia, Amalfi, and Naples herself, famed for their beauty and history, as well as some lesser-known, but no less charming sites, for example the vast Imperial villa at Baia, and the outstanding Roman frescoes at the Villa Oplontis.

Apart from the sheer pleasure of travelling on a luxury gulet, our guests have access to a variety of activities, including swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. Another key feature are our excursions ashore for those eager to explore the ancient sites and the local ambience of Italy. Our guides also introduce you to the best of authentic local cuisine by organising shore meals at carefully selected venues, ranging from traditional family-run trattorias to sophisticated restaurants that represent the height of Italian gastronomy.
We have long experience in organizing scheduled tours in Italy, and the combination of relaxed and pleasurable cruising, swimming in pretty coves, excellent food and archaeological exploration on superb sites makes the country a perfect destination for individual private charters. No matter how diverse the interests or ages in your group, you will find something to satisfy everyone along the shores and in the islands of Italy – and if you want us to design your very own itinerary just for you and your family or friends, we are happy to do that!
“Traveling for a month in Italy, the highlight of our trip was the Peter Sommer Travels’ gulet trip on the Amalfi Coast. A fabulous way to visit and learn about the history of the area while living and eating great food on the gulet, Deriya Deniz. Michael went above and beyond as a guide and his knowledge and enthusiasm are amazing. This being our second Peter Sommer Travels trip, I’m sure it won’t be our last.”
