DAY 1: CAPRI

Boarding and accommodation in the cabin with a short safety briefing on board. Departure for Capri: we will cross the Bay of Sorrento with a look at the villages of the Sorrento Peninsula, such as Vico Equense, Puolo and Massa Lubrense. Once in Capri, we will visit the Blue Grotto, boarding small boats with a flat bottom to slide into the narrow entrance of the cave, on the surface of the water. At the end of the visit to the cave, the circumnavigation of the island continues, passing through the Green Grotto and mooring in the bay of Marina Piccola for a refreshing dip, a snack and a little relaxation. After sunset, an evening stroll through the city of Capri. We will disembark on the island with the rubber dinghy and then arrive in 10 minutes, with a small bus, in the famous Piazzetta. From there, continuing on foot to “Punta Tragara”, you will reach a wonderful panoramic point on the Faraglioni.

DAY 2 - AMALFI

In the morning we will complete the tour of the island and pass by the famous Faraglioni of Capri. We will then sail towards Punta Campanella and, once doubled, we will officially find ourselves on the Amalfi Coast on a sailing boat. Stop in Nerano, a perfect bay for a dip thanks to its southern exposure and the mountains that protect the bay from the wind. From there we will leave for Amalfi and sail along the coast, in front of Positano and the islands of the "Li Galli". Arrived in the village, lunch and afternoon of diving and sun in the bay of Conca dei Marini. Return to the port, in the evening dinner and visit of the town.

DAY 3: POSITANO

DAY 4: SORRENTO

In the morning, head to another gulf: from the Gulf of Salerno to the Gulf of Naples, passing through Punta Campanella. Along the way, there will be a stop in Recommone bay to discover two particularly interesting caves that have nothing to envy to the more famous Blue Grotto of Capri. Before sunset, we will sail towards Sorrento. Dinner is scheduled in one of the main restaurants with a terrace overlooking the sea, where it will be possible to enjoy a delicious pizza. Before night it is possible to stroll through the charming streets of the city.

DAY 5: POMPEII - HERCULANEUM

In the morning we sail towards Marina di Stabia. Arriving at the port, you will take a private taxi to begin a guided tour of the fascinating cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, still intact in the shadow of the imposing Vesuvius. Visiting Pompeii and Herculaneum is the experience of a lifetime!
